You are making me do things....I need to spend time on stupid car stuff

@  Marchi1 : (12 July 2017 - 02:35 AM)

How is everyone doing tonight?

@  scottydoggs98 : (09 July 2017 - 12:52 PM)

some of the 99 pcms will work take a 01 bin, those you can change the vin # ive found.

@  scottydoggs98 : (09 July 2017 - 12:50 PM)

the vin is kept in the pcm, you cant change the vin @ with dhp on 01 up cars, so if you use a the cars pcm with dhp it will retain the cars vin#. so if you flash a new bin to the pcm, its vin stays put.

@  RacingRegal36 : (08 July 2017 - 11:05 PM)

i need a bin that will work with this vin: 1g4cu541914206781

@  RacingRegal36 : (08 July 2017 - 10:33 PM)

does anyone have a 2000 park avenue .bin file?

ISS got shortened during install somehow and had to lengthen back to size.

@  Tobias05 : (22 June 2017 - 01:15 AM)

...if I am able to bolt down both ends with little resistance than I would imagine it is properly seated?

@  Tobias05 : (22 June 2017 - 01:14 AM)

Swapped rack and pinion, not sure if ISS is seated.

@  Marchi1 : (13 June 2017 - 11:32 PM)

Thanks to DigitalOutsider for providing me with a picture!!!:)

Odometer/tripometer, DIC and/or "PRND21" display out or really dim?? Here's the fix. Just takes some patience and some good soldering skills.

Replace only where the resistors are shown. You can buy these resistors at Radio Shack and they come in packs of 5.

Radio Shack Part # 271-1109

SHOULD BE IN STOCK!

Thank you very much! I knew those pictures would come in handy :wink:

You know, I was looking at those exact things, and I was wondering if they could be the problem. Then I couldn't figure out what they even were. LOL.

Oh well, I'll stop by radioshack after work and pick up some resistors.

No problem. All I needed this whole time was a darn picture! :lol: I had one when I first took mine out back in late September/early October, but the picture was crap!

Again, thank you!

It's pretty common for them to go out from what I've heard. I've had lots of members ask me to do a write-up since I fixed mine in October.

Just out of curiousity and i don't consider myself dumb (but i did slack through both of my engineering electronics courses) how did you determine those were the resistors that were bad? Or should i say what led you to beleive those created the problem? I'm guessing you simply tested all of them and found the ones that no longer had any resistance were bad and required replacement. Thanks

Those are the ones that fell out after removing the cluster from the dash. Not only that, but if you use a magnifying glass, you can see where the old solder points were broke.

Are those resistors actually faulty or do they just need to be resoldered, as is the case with the Climate Control?

I believe it's just the soldering points, but for a couple of bucks you replace them and solder them in, and you won't have to worry about them ever again (hopefully). In my case, they just fell out. In DigitalOutsider's case they stayed intact.

I just suggested buying new ones to save myself and yourself the headache.

Hey, Eric, great write-up. However, something is missing... Can you possibly do a write-up for the removal of the cluster?

Removal of the whole unit or just the board?

heres a link that may help http://www.regalgs.o...der=asc&start=0
ii havent been back there for awhile, but one the whole cluster is removed, there are various clips that when undone seperate the unit into seperate pieces

is there anyway of changing the color of the green digital information (driver info, gearindicator)?

As far as I know, no. You can change the bulbs that light up the cluster.

You CAN change the color of the DIC/odometer/HVAC using different methods, but I won't share mine until I'm positive it works so people don't go out and waste their time. Experiment, though!

Well, I was also wondering how well things went on the fix. I'm curious.
