    I think I found the issue.
    I took a small steel...

    Gentlemen, what am I looking at here?

    The A/C (I got EATC) takes its sweet time to kick in. I think I'd need to check the refrigerant pressure, but it seems to be OK, because when it does kick in,...

    I don't think the wires are switched, it seems to click the vent open to vent the air springs through its solenoids. It seems it does not want to start pumping air, tho I might be wrong.
