Thanks for helping CF. I am at work right now but I will take those measurements as soon as I get home. (I should have refreshed by browser before replying I wrote all of this without seeing your second post. I will get all the data tonight.)
1) I did look for bridges but I will again. I did clean the board with 91% alcohol and a tooth brush twice.
2) All the orientations look good but I haven't got out the magnifying glass yet to check parts but I will.
I want to make sure I am explaining myself as to what I was doing. I can follow instructions and a schematic but as to what is going on where in the circuit I am clueless. I was trying to follow this step in the setup
"Measure between OG and SG. This should be very close to 12V. If it's not there might be a problem with the TLE2426 or with one of the devices in the rail splitter."
I had the negative lead of my volt meter on the SG pad and the positive lead on the OG pad and I was expecting this to be 12v but it was 1.3 VDC and SG to OL/OR was 0 VDC.
You want me to measure the voltage before the relay. Below is the silkscreen with Red and blue dots to where I think you want me to take the reading from to SG.
Also please let us know the heater readings (voltage bet pins #4 & #5) for both 6V & 12V heater switch positions.
Is this with or without a tube in. I am assuming without.
Sorry for the rudimentary questions I just want to make sure I don't damage anything further and thanks for the tip about attaching pins to my probes.
