Dove into it today, research showed it was most likely the drain valve, and if you connect the green connector under the dash, all solenoids and the fans are supposed to cycle.
Was getting power, it didn't cycle, I managed to get it apart and the round slider was stuck in the bore. Wasn't rust, the plastic in the bore had swelled a bit.
Poked around, found the hex part of an old clutch pushrod from a '67 GTO I had years back was a tight fit in the loose part of the bore.
Chucked it in the drill press, bored the bore just a skosh, it's like new!

Drain what? And what oracle do you consult when you do research?

So far only critter that has chewed on my wires is a groundhog the dog chased under the car, and it climbed all the way up to just under the windshield.
I think since I park outdoors and there is a big cozy garage nearby, they much prefer the garage.
