Started this in the electrical area, moving to here.

Replaced my control panel with two Ecklers panels.  Neither panel would work correctly as far as the vacuum goes, moving the air flow.  Installed my old panel and the air vacs move correctly.  At a lose here.  I am thinking of trying to  just replacing the electrical guts on the panel.  The reason am going down this road is due to a short on that part of the panel.  Panel works fine, but I feel it is causing a system drain down issue on my car.  Any feedback is wanted.  Have pics if needed.  joe.dewey@yahoo.com.

I have pretty much come to that also.  I have just the electrical part of the panel coming in today.  Will try just replacing that part on my old panel and hopefully it will work.
