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?

@  M_Dogg : (08 July 2017 - 04:33 PM)

Ha! This guy, what up pendejo?

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)

getting there...you need to come into the City

that was remarkably easy. i've never soldered PCB before but it works perfectly. this write up was great.


I've never soldered PCB before, I've never pulled the dash on a Regal apart before, but the whole process only took about an hour and a half to two hours, tops. Could probably cut it down considerably the second time around.


Time to buy a fuckload of resistors.

Thanks! I came across this just in time. My VFD just started doing this the other day. In the meantime I've discovered if I just jiggle the trip counter knob in a little bit it lights back up as normal. I'll continue doing so until it all out fails.

finally found my post, when I did it. If you follow the links to different threads it should give you most if not all the info that you need. Be patient with the soldering.

We just got our 98 GS last sunday. It had the dim dic/odo at first then the dic went out completely. spent $19 and some change at Radio Shack counting a soldering iron kit , desoldering braid and resistors. Took about an hour start to finish. Now the dic is back on and both are very bright! One thing I did was heated one side of the existing resistor and pried it up to pop the other end off the solder. DON'T do it this way! Take the time to heat each side when removing exsisting resistors. I pried up on one and pulled part of the circuit off the board. Another thing is a heads up on how to bend/place the new resistors:

Thanks to the OP for saving us a couple hundred bucks each!

Alright, so a buddy and I decided to tackle this over the weekend. Write up was excellent. We decided to take a look at the radio and the HVAC while we were at it. Took the face off the radio and put it back together but didn't change anything. Opened up the HVAC and found a light out. Went to radio shack and found another light and installed it. Put everything back together and the DIC works awesome. The radio now has a few more lights out like the volume and search button. The HVAC i only replaced the fan light and now the temp and air flow light are out. Any ideas while more would go out? Also, where can I get replacement bulbs. Oh and can I replace the heated seat bulbs and the fog light, mode button bulbs?

1St post on an awesome site!! Bought a 2000 GS last weekend and the DIC was dead. Found this fix on here and  VOILA!!

 

SUPER EZ fix (4 had fallen out) AND I even reused the old resistors (except that I could only find 3) and they worked perfectly.

Ive got a feeling im gonna be spending a LOT of time on this site!! THANKS for the videos they really helped.

 

PS this car is a BLAST!!

Another option is to use SMD mount resistors. I used the following part:

 

http://www.mouser.co...qJEE0VjJCjwrw==

 

If the link doesn't work, the Mouser.com part number is 71-CRCW2512-150-E3, manufacturer part number is CRCW2512150RFKEG.

 

It is a 1 watt 150 ohm 1% tolerance resistor that fits the pads on the circuit board good. 21 cents each. I ordered 20 for less than $10 shipped. Being a 1 watt part they will handle the heat even better, although it is probably overkill in that regard. Mostly I just wanted an SMD package resistor for ease of soldering.

No.  Separate issue.  If certain gauges are dark you have 12V bulbs out.  There is probably information on here about what bulbs you need, although most small 12V bulbs like this interchange if you're creative and have tools.

Are the back-lighting bulbs just standard 194's?
