@  Bad Attitude : (18 April 2014 - 10:28 PM) Where do we get new trailing arm brackets from?
@  jawdog : (18 April 2014 - 08:23 PM) No need to worry. You don't need an exploit to read the traffic, it's not encrytped anyways....lol
@  cryptnix : (18 April 2014 - 07:41 PM) This server isn't, technically susceptible to the Heartbleed, unless they try and have fun with SSH, but I firewall SSH to just my IP addresses or subnets... I've been reissuing certificates anyhow, so no need to worry ... :P
@  keithr182 : (18 April 2014 - 12:02 AM) Heartbleed attacks sites that use SSL, this site doesn't. If it has an https at the beginning then it's susceptible. but this is just plain old http
@  spcrollins405 : (17 April 2014 - 11:55 PM) Hey. Anyone know if our server is susceptible to the Heartbleed bug?
@  99RegalClone : (17 April 2014 - 07:38 PM) cool @nateto, be sure to take lots of pics, and even a write up for guys like you and i that plan to do this swap in our 3100. i hope you get your PCM sorted out
@  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 - 08:31 PM) http://www.clubgp.co.../tm.asp?m=20670
@  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

OK need a conformation here.
This happens irregularly. No correlation to hitting bumps or any thing else.

On the dash, I'll get the full "Christmas lights", reset the gages and the Ding, ding, ding..... Then back to normal. Car stays running. ( crosses fingers as panic sets in )

It's just started doing this, this past week, Maybe once or twice a day.

Bad Battery connection?
or.
Ignition switch / key tumbler?

I don't remember which.

Who has "fixed this" Ign. switch by spraying contact/Maf cleaner in there?

Exactly what mine did when the ignition switch went out. I have not done the cleaning myself (just the replacement), but there is at least one good article here (or a link to clubgp) that goes through the clean up routine.
I have taken one apart though, and will say that you do need to take care. Even though the parts are all relatively large (as compared to a watch?), but are finicky enough that you would want to have steady hands and a good memory for where they all go. Or take pictures as you go.

But the symptom is definitely the same as my switch. It really would rear up when I would use the turn signal switch, and only killed the engine after it had been doing it for a few weeks.
On the other hand, my '03 LS gave no prior warning when it went out and just literally died out of the blue going down the freeway. Oddly enough, when the GS finally gave out I was going down the freeway too. I guess it just "knows" when you're in an awkward spot.

Did this happen before you did your extensive engine work? I would check all my grounds and power feeds before I condemn an ignition switch.
