#402160 Doing some basic Mods to '02 GS. Do I need to have it tuned?

Posted by Crazyguy03 on 13 December 2016 - 07:47 PM

If you want a simple "hack" to eliminate the p0420 code, have your mechanic install a $5 spark plug non fouler on the rear o2. It removes the tip of the sensor out the exhaust stream so it now sees less exhaust and thinks the cat is working per oem specs

#389137 I Dont like zzp pcm

Posted by Crazyguy03 on 22 January 2015 - 02:50 PM

I think we are all chasing our tails until we have heard back from OP that the basic maintainece has been done.
If he removed 160k plug wires to change plugs, and never replaced the wires, has misfires on both PCMs..... Well how many times have you removed old wires by using that specific wire-boot grasping tool or just yank'd em out ? They could be damaged if re-used.
They really aren't made to snap on and off like the aftermarket wires are. They usually are made to clip on and stay there

Maintainece before mods

#388317 any good diy coolant flushes?

Posted by Crazyguy03 on 02 January 2015 - 03:46 AM

Actually the Prestone flush kit has a mini how-to in the instructions. But the links above is what you're asking for.

Edit
Remember if search feature doesn't give you what you want , use google. Google any subject and add "regalgs.org" at the end.

ex: diy flush regalgs.org

#383388 What did you do to your car today???

Did another AC overhaul. Getting this down to about 2 hours now IF the orifice tube doesnr need replacing

If it does , I had to remove the union going to condensor and the drier. Also disconnect the 13mm bolt at the firewall.
Then thru the wheel well, don't remove the tire just jack up the car, remove 2 10mm nuts and 1 bolt. This will allow you to push the ABS unit out of the way.
Now remove the 2 15mm nuts holding the brake reservoir to the brake booster.
Also remove the cruise control unit.

Now you can pull the line up and out to access the orifice tube.
The 97-98 have the skinny type and the 99-04 have the larger type.

#379368 Map lamps on rear view mirror.

Posted by Crazyguy03 on 20 April 2014 - 03:57 PM

Having a moon roof and no dome light really makes the interior lighting far from superior.The map lights on the rear view mirror are not ground side controlled by the bcm so they dont turn on when the doors are opened.Unfortunatly the auto dim circuit and map lights share the same ground on pin 2.I was going to rewire the ground side of the map lights to circuit 157 ,theater dimming from the bcm but there is no pin 6 on my mirror.I will figure something out,it wont be like this for long.The circuit looks like it involves a photocell,alldata isnt very informative on that diagram.

#378543 Rear View Mirrow Fix

Posted by Crazyguy03 on 06 April 2014 - 01:06 AM

So if your car is like mine, you might have noticed the map lights on the rear view mirror stopped working and / or the auto dim feature stopped working as well.

You might also have noticed that moving the wire harness that attaches to the mirror allows them to work again, until its moved or you hit a bump.

 

I finally just took the mirror off using a T10 bit and some help from a handy pick set.

Use the pick to free the harness plug that attaches to the mirror. I say use a pick as its a tight spot and kind of hard to get to.

 

How to open the mirror

 

Nothing holds the mirror together like screws , clips or tabs - its glued shut

 

Start by taking the map light covers off ( again using the tiny pick tools really helps)

This leaves a space for you to slowly start prying the 2 halves of the mirror apart. Work in small spots at a time and it should come apart pretty easily

 

once you have it open, it should look like this:

Here you can see a bit closer what the culprit is:

 

Attached File  IMG_8294.jpg   115.13KB   3 downloads

 

Attached File  IMG_6166.jpg   141.81KB   3 downloads

 

Its the main connector that you attach the wire harness to. You can move it slightly - enough to break contact with the circuit board causing all the symptoms described above

 

I suggest working on a clean work space. I used a mouse pad to avoid damaging any fragile parts

 

Slowly pry up the circuit board to reveal the solder connections on the back side

I used the pick to aid in freeing the board. Be careful not to apply a lot of force or risk breaking the circuit board or the glass.

 

When you are done, it should look like this:

 

Attached File  IMG_5391.jpg   133.57KB   3 downloads

 

Here you can see the tiny posts sticking through the board. At the base of each post where the solder is, look closely. You can see the solder separated from the board when you move the connecter on the front side of the circuit board

 

Attached File  IMG_2491.jpg   148.01KB   3 downloads

 

Using a pencil tip soldering iron, I applied head to each post, until the factory solder liquified , and then i added some of my own. Repeat for each post, use very small amounts, just enough to re establish a connection between the post and the board

 

 

Once you are all done, reasemble in the same fashion. What you use for adhesive is up to you. I recommend using a tooth pick and applying the adhesive with that. You literally only need small dabs along the whole outside edge. There is very little room and too much will make a mess.

 

I used tape to hold it together while it dried and re install.

Note  I used whatever adhesive I had available at last minute. Im sure there are far better choices then mine

#372129 Regal Crime Scene. WARNING: Contains Graphic Pictures

Posted by Crazyguy03 on 05 December 2013 - 10:12 PM

Yea. It's always nice of the junkyards here to put "bio hazard" stickers on those cars

At the same time it's creepy. Saw a smashed SUV with "we miss you" "class of 2014 will never forget" etc... Written with marker all over it. shit like that should be crushed

#359796 I thought I bought a GMR 1 inch chain set.

Posted by Crazyguy03 on 29 April 2013 - 01:14 AM

That's why I didn't either side.
No side knew what they were selling or what they were buying
It's unfair for both parties involved but because of juniors character , and how he dealt with it, I can see why the seller is being the way he is. Still doesnt make it right , but given the chance , most people would be the same way if slandered all over the Internet.

It make ZERO sense to sell something blind, and it makes ZERO sense to buy something blind.
If those were the pics the seller sent, and junior saw, then technically junior bought what he saw and received as such.
Research. Research. Research.
And respect. A little respect and privacy goes a long way. Don't wanna burn someone before they are given the chance to return your money

#357303 Very low boost

Posted by Crazyguy03 on 28 March 2013 - 11:18 PM

You could always by-pass the boost solenoid. Run the boost bypass valve off the same vacuum line That would eliminate the solenoid issue.
The BBV itsself could be leaking. You can test that by pushing the lever in and holding both ports shut with your fingers. The lever should not slowly push back down
