Accuair problems

I am having problems with both my accuair e-level systems. I have the full e-level system in my 1961 Belair as well as my 1968 C10. The system in my Belair is having issues with the touch pad cutting out all the time, I think it's the cord. I tried my touch pad from the truck and it still cuts out, which that one doesn't cut out in the truck. I also tried the connector at the back of the touch pad with the same results. Now my truck seems to be operating fine, but has an excessive draw. It kills the battery within a couple days. I remove the fuse for the ECU and the battery lasts weeks. Just wondering if anyone has had similar problems with their e-level system?
Thanks
Trevor

Re: Accuair problems

I don't have E-level yet but I do have the accuair switchspeed on my toyota and because of how its wired the compressors will kick on over the course of a few days due to some minor leaks I haven't addressed yet.

Are you sure you don't have any leaks that may cause your compressors to kick on depending on how its wired? What pressure switch are you running? Have you hooked up an ammeter to see how much draw there is? Is your accuair ECU hooked to keyed power and constant +12? Have you tried swapping ECUs between the two to check if the draw is an internal problem or an install problem?

The cable and touchpad issue does seem like a bad cable, can you easily pull the cable out of the truck to test direct to the car ECU?

Re: Accuair problems

Both systems are wired as per accuair's spec, which is keyed power. So the compressors would never come on when the key is off.. Both vehicles are assembled with full interior so swapping components is hard. Accuair got back to me and I will do some circuit testing and get some numbers for them. Once I'm back from work I'll check it out.

Re: Accuair problems

I have an issue where one bag seems to air done out of the blue while driving. It says it's still in the #2/3 position according to the controller, but it's clearly not. I spoke with Travis from pro performance and he seems to think it's an air leak, but I have yet to find one. Let us know if you find the cause! I'm always interested in learning.

Re: Accuair problems

Lets us now what you find. I am also curios as mine also goes dead after a few days. For now since it is just a work in progress, I just leave the charger on it.

Re: Accuair problems

I was able to test the red circuit for amp draw. With the meter inline of the fuse there was a 449mA draw. The compressor actually kicked in for a second as well, which I don't think that should happen with the key off. So I guess we'll see what accuair is going to do about this.

Re: Accuair problems

Are you running the accuair pressure switch?

Re: Accuair problems

How old is your ECU? I had to have mine replaced because it would not save any manual programming that I would do. Anyway, in for the answer on this one.

Re: Accuair problems

The whole system is accuair so yes it is an accuair pressure switch.

How do you know how old the ECU is? I purchased the system a 2 years ago, but was only on the road for last summer. Is there a build date on it?

They are numbered, but I'm not sure how the determine what the date is. I purchased mine in 2010, but didn't get mine installed until early this year.

Re: Accuair problems

Now you have me worried Rob, I purchased my accuair in 2010 or 2011, and I am about to throw it on the Blazer. I hope mine works. How much was it to replace the ECU or did they just do a swap on it?

They swapped mine out. I think they will take care of you if you have a problem.

Re: Accuair problems

They want me to send in both ECU's and the cable and touch pad from the Belair. Just waiting for a good time to have both vehicles disabled. I ended up having to replace the battery in the truck and it has actually been good. So I might just send in the Belair stuff and keep an eye on the truck for the summer.
