one dump on the rear pump not working, where do i start,
i took the cartridge out, looks fine, seals look in tact,
could it be the check valve stuck closed?

If its just not dumping it could still be the cartridge. Could be swollen or stuck internally. Make sure all your connections are good, you have a good ground on the dump. If that dont work, Swap one of the solenoids from another dump and see if it works. If that dont work its most likely a bad dump. If it does its a bad solenoid. A bad check valve would not stop it from dumping, it would stop the car from staying locked up.

got it,, the old red's cartridge unscrews into two pieces, i did what you said, figured out it wasn't the solenoid, took the cartridge back out, and when i took it apart, the pin on the inside was so bent it was zig zag'd so i took a pin from a spare cartridge and put it all back together,,, works like a champ!

thanks for the info... :puffin:
