@  Nateteo : (16 April 2014 - 02:06 AM) Why does anyone know if a PCM relearn will trip the battery light if the PCM is not re-flashed and crank shaft position not relearned I am asking this because I am gonna get the chev dealer that's part of the auto group that I work for to flash my new PCM and give me a idea what could have ruined my last PCM. 99regalclone I am pretty sure I am gonna do a l67 4t65e hd subframe swap after summer.
@  steveyjr1982 : (14 April 2014 - 08:08 PM) Therefore no programming is needed
@  steveyjr1982 : (14 April 2014 - 08:07 PM) If you're replacing the ignition switch then there is no need to mess with the cylinder as it is separate from the switch itself.
@  99RegalClone : (14 April 2014 - 05:19 AM) ok @roadmaster ill check out the link and see what i will end up doing
@  RoadMonster : (13 April 2014 - 08:32 PM) clubgp can be very useful if you know how to use the search.

@  RoadMonster : (13 April 2014 - 07:48 PM) take it apart, clean the copper contacts and put it back together
@  RoadMonster : (13 April 2014 - 07:47 PM) you can rebuild the switch if you want to.
@  99RegalClone : (13 April 2014 - 05:29 AM) do i buy a new ign switch or chance getting one from the JY. i saw that the switch connects to the bottom of the column and shouldnt be too hard
@  99RegalClone : (13 April 2014 - 05:29 AM) i know with the ign cylinder it will need to be programed because of the chip
@  steveyjr1982 : (13 April 2014 - 05:26 AM) You can do the switch yourself, you just have to be careful of the airbag.
@  99RegalClone : (13 April 2014 - 05:22 AM) im having a no start issue with my 99 century, but when you turn the key nothing happens, ive read this is related to the ignition switch or key cylinder. If its the switch, can i do it myself and not pay dealership price for that?
@  99RegalClone : (13 April 2014 - 05:21 AM) odd @nateto, the one i have for mine, the DIC lit up, couldnt cycle through the features but mine came on
@  steveyjr1982 : (13 April 2014 - 03:43 AM) writeups
@  steveyjr1982 : (13 April 2014 - 03:43 AM) Theres a few riteups here to fix that DIC issue
@  Nateteo : (11 April 2014 - 12:24 PM) The odo is burnt out and the dic won't wort but it's has the same service engine lights and low wash lights as the century one.
@  99RegalClone : (11 April 2014 - 05:48 AM) i dont see the DIC working or the ODO working
@  Nateteo : (11 April 2014 - 04:02 AM)
@  Nateteo : (11 April 2014 - 04:01 AM) Here's what I got for now it shows its working
@  Nateteo : (11 April 2014 - 03:50 AM) Working on it 99regalclone.

Going through the pulleys I have been trying to figure out where this annoying squeeking has been comming from. Well it came down to changing the tensioner pulley out and it didn't fix the issue so i now just replaced the alternator but it still didn't fix the issue =(. While I was installing the alternator I noticed that while putting pressure onto the idler pulley to remove the belt, I kept hearing the squeek again, so im going to go with the idea that the issue is the tensioner itself.

Does anyone know where i can get a good used one ? Maybe a member here may have one !!

And maybe a general walk through with installing the part, I honestly need to get this part replaced ASAP because im sick of hearing the squeek.

the idler is easy to replace, just remove it by removing the bolt on the face and put on the new one. First take the belt off by releasing the tension on the tensioner with a wrench. This will be a good time to put a new belt on, not absolutely necessary but its good piece of mind and cheap so might as well do it. there is a diagram of the belt routing on a sticker that is in the engine compartment. this will be handy when it comes time to put the belt back on.

when it comes to pulleys, i do not recommend getting a used one. they are cheap enough that a used one doesnt make sense. esp since you dont know how many miles the used one has, it can go any day. do it right or do it twice! check rockauto, i bet you find a brand new one just as cheap as a used one.

I also recommend replacing it asap. a squealing idler means failure is eminent, and if its the acc belt if that goes you lose power steering, water pump, and alternator. not something you want happening when you're on the road.
