Can you please be more specific.
In order for me to check if the regulator is getting power I need to know where this is located
I have checked ad there is power coming to this. It is nearly impossible to start the car when cold but it is fine once it has been running for a while. If you switch it off once it is warm there is no problem in restarting the engine
The regulator is held to the engine by two hex bolts, and is held together by four flat-head-screwdriver bolts. Be careful! The unit contains several springs and other fragile components. Take it apart indoors in a clean environment where you can keep track of all the little pieces. When it comes apart, there are three metal pieces held together by two gaskets in a sort of sandwich. If your gaskets are ruined (hopefully not) you can replace them with that gasket maker stuff.
Once you have it apart into these pieces, you’ll need to remove the 10mm nut on the heating element and carefully bend the heating element out of the way by bending the two wires that attach to it. Now, use a small flathead screwdriver and remove the four bolts that hold down a circular diaphragm.
Once you have that taken apart, get out your carb cleaner and spray out the insides of the thing as best you can. Now, put it back together, making sure that everything goes back the same way it did before.
