    Buy a OEM unit instead of aftermarket, they're worth it. Use a couple rubber bands to hold it togeather while you assemble it

    And its a 5 minute job if the long through bolts that mount it to the pump don't break off in the pump. Otherwise its an all afternoon job. :realmad:


    OEM for sure.

    Overload light illuminating on the touch pad is usually caused by a bad/weak connection, a bad under hood solenoid, or failing valve coil...not normally by a bad motor.

    Does it go into overload when any function is pressed or just a certain one?

    Seemed to do it with any function maybe lowered more . i would turn it off then back on hit the function then it would overload again

    If it consistently does it even when the the lower function is pressed then it isn't the motor or under hood solenoid because neither are being operated during the lower function. More likely it's a poor connection in the electrical harness or the ground cable between the pump and battery.

    This would also include the small ground wire for the touch pad itself.
