Question ARB Compressor install issue--help!

Installed the CKMA12 ARB compressor yesterday.

It's installed as directed with the only exception being that the switch harness goes to my sPOD ARB harness instead of directly to a switch mounted inside the vehicle.

There are NO lockers or other items hooked up to the compressor, it's merely to air up the tires after wheeling.

PROBLEM: I activate the sPOD switch inside the Jeep and the compressor comes on for about 3 seconds and then stops.

It does not restart.

If you turn the switch to OFF and then immediately back to ON, the compressor does not start.

If you turn the switch to OFF, wait a few minutes and THEN turn it back to ON, it repeats the cycle, runs for about 3 seconds and then shuts off.

I can duplicate this over and over.

I'm no electrical engineer, so I need some input.

The battery is good (tested it), it's obviously not a fuse (or it wouldn't run at all), the sPOD works fine (has other items hooked to it).....what else could it be?

Thanks in advance....

The motor shuts off when the pressure reaches a certain limit. Then will go on as the pressure goes down. It doesn't take much to reach the shutoff point. Use it after it shuts off and see if it goes back on as the pressure is depleted.

Yeah, it sounds like its working the way its supposed to. Air up a tire and see if it kicks on as soon as you put the air to the tire, then see if it shuts off seconds after you pull the hose off the tire valve. If it does that, i would say its good.

Ok. So I'm a dumbass.

It is indeed working correctly, under load.

I mean, I know that tank is little, but 3 seconds? I guess that just seemed like too short of a run time in my little pea brain.

Thanks for pointing out the obvious (to the rest of the world)
