The car has had low boost for a while now, it usually maxes out at around 9psi or so. This morning I finally got around to testing the boost solenoid. So, I put the car in test mode with the 2 green connectors on the driver's side under the dash. Turn the ignition to 'on', and listen. As the fans come on and cycle through their speeds, I walk over to the boost solenoid and listen for a while. I never hear it click. Hmmmmm....OK, turn the ignition off, remove the solenoid, and hit it with power from the battery. 'Click!' Damn....I was hoping that it was the solenoid. Sure enough I can blow through it when it is connected directly to the battery. Put it back in the car and run test mode again. Still nothing.
Am I on the right track here? Should I be hearing the BCS 'click' when in test mode? Since I double checked the solenoid and it does in fact work, should I be worried about something else, like the ECU? Can I use a multimeter to check the signal from the ECU to the BCS?
