I will look at the wiring diagram and get back with you on this. should be 20 amp fuse to motor in engine compartment fuse box. if its blown, usually bad compressor. compressor goes bad because of leaking air bags. cost is usually around 1500.00 to replace compressor and both bags. parts stores carry a delete kit that replaces air bags with coil springs. kit costs 200 to 300.

Question Answered: Where is the HPOP located on the engine, so I can see if it has been updated?

hpop is located under turbo. turbo has to come off, then there is a cover for the hpop. if vehicle is high miles, chances are it has been updated, as the snap to connect fitting originally used lasted about 100k miles.

Car Review: 2009 Hyundai Accent
August 01, 2013, 08:03 PM
Bought this car new. Was driving 150 miles a day back and forth to work. Needed a cheap car that had a long warranty as I was racking up miles on car I was driving pretty quick. Did normal maintenance up to 35k miles. Took to dealer with a/c problem. Compressor bad, headlights peeling chrome inside, trans slip in 3rd gear. Repaired all but the trans. Was told to drive it till trans went out and get it replaced. 55k now and still slips. Other than that, been a good car. Averages 35mpg on highway.

Bought this Eddie Bauer Expedition in June. Had 78k miles on it. Was a trade in with a bad engine knock. Pulled oil pan, #8 rod bearing bad, crankshaft ok. Put it together, have put about 3k miles on it since repair. Drives good. Has 4x4 and air suspension. Not great on gas milage but try not to drive a lot. Great to pull with. Looking for third row seat as it was gone.
