Power Distribution Center

I am hoping you guys can help me with this. Is there a way to remove a power distribution center from a 1993 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo I6?

When I was looking at my air conditioner wiring, I checked the relay in the PDC for the A/C and found that it was not engaging. After cross checking with the fuel pump relay (an identical relay), I discovered that the socket for the relay in the PDC had no electrical power. I want to see if there is a bad connection in the PDC, how can I do this?

Thank you,

Tom

I do not know what the Jeep "PDC" actually looks like but I would thing you could just probe it with a multimeter and find out what you want.

I was able to find where the failure was with the multimeter--the failure exists where the power should be coming from. So unless there is some sort of massive failure elsewhere, I am tempted to open up the power distribution center and look around.

I wish I could help you more, I am not only new to Jeep but mine is anything but an original Jeep.

This will at least get you bumped up.

I was able to accomplish my goal. For reference:

I took two screw drivers to pry the clips on the side. Then I had an assistant pull on the PDC box until it popped out of its metal seating. The bottom had a couple of clips to pull on to remove the bottom and I was able to look at all the PDC wiring. Although the chance of the PDC or any of its wiring being defective is 1/1000000000000, it is nice to have the re-assurance.
