I inquired about upgrading my account to be able to post the picture of the service diagram, but haven't gotten a reply.
After finally getting up the nerve to turn on the heat and A/C to check if the precharge resistor would blow again, I heard the A/C compressor struggling and making a slight squealing sound, not similar to my 2012 Leaf. It turned off by itself after about 10 seconds. Worried I blew it again, I checked and the car still turns off, and on, goes into drive and reverse unlike when the precharge resistor was blown.
So putting the puzzle together, the previous owner was using the A/C defroster to clear the window this last winter. She came out to the car after 20 minutes had passed and the car would not go into drive or reverse, charge, or heat or defrost the car. Did all of the diagnostic flow charts from the service manual and upon advice from Mux, tested the precharge resistor in the battery junction box in the traction battery and verified the precharge resistor was fried. By the way, Thanks Mux for helping from long distance!
Maybe the FAILING High Voltage A/C compressor had put a large load on the precharge resistor and caused it to burn out? Would the HV compressor come on if it didn't have enough refrigerant? I wouldn't think so. Also, I read that these electric compressors must use a different oil than a regular conventional PAG compressor oil or it will cause it to fail. It calls for ND-11 ester oil made for electric compressors.
I will have my brother put some gauges to the A/C lines to verify refrigerant, but I suspect the compressor was the culprit. Anybody concur?
Should I have the compressor oil tested? As soon as my upgrade to Gold is active, I will post the wiring diagram.
