Re: Make turn signals flash instead of DRL

Should be easy on a 96-99...just splice the horn output of the RKE module into the hazard circuit.
00-02 requires reprogramming the BCM which is darn near impossible.

Re: Seat Belts

That I'm not sure of.

I've become less afraid of the "git 'r done" idea so...a drill, drill bits and grade 8 bolts would fix it up and still be safe. Use fender washers if you're really afraid of...

Re: Going under the knife

Gotta take the belt off to take the A/C compressor off the engine (tie up on the radiator support) then take off the air pump stuff and now you can get to the exhaust manifold bolts.

Re: Seat Belts

Rear's should be the same '91-'95 on the SL/SW's and '91-'96 on the SC's' for these crossover years ('95 SL/SW, '95-'96 SC) only the dash, center console and A/B pillar trim got the 2nd gen treatment.

Re: 2002 sc2 cam shaft sensor

The S-Series use's computer logic to emulate a camshaft sensor by the way wires #1 and #4 act while running; the camshaft sensor code means it's either time for plugs & wires or #1 and #4 are...

Re: Steering Column removal for 93 SW2 question?

Don't forget to undo the u-joint between the column and the rack under the hood. 1x 10mm hex bolt on each side of the u-joint.

Follow the vacuum lines down from the throttle body. One line goes around to the FPR, the other goes to the purge solenoid.

No part of the S-Series cooling system leaves the engine bay other than the heater core that sits about 6" farther back inside the dash.

Both sensors have 2 prongs but the "stop tabs" are different.

Re: Car overheating, disturbing noise from radiator fan

As long as the fan is balanced it doesn't matter how many blades it has. Going by eBay used radiator fan listings stock fans (for the S-Series) have 5 unevenly spaced blades.

Re: Rack and pinion swap

Didn't feel any different on my '96 SC2's than any other DOHC, though the turning radius was much nicer due to '91-'96 SC/SC1/SC2's being ~5in shorter than the rest.

If there actually is a...

Re: Help Figure Out if Bad Head Gasket

The oil eats into the plug and/or plug boot shorting that plug to ground and creating a misfire. Usually recommended to replace plug wires when the valve cover gasket's been leaking that bad.

Re: Help Figure Out if Bad Head Gasket

I'd be surprised if you actually need to replace the valve cover, unless someone smacked it too hard with a hammer. The plastic covers found on special '94's and '96-98 are pure crap but the aluminum...

Re: Does my 2000 SW2 have ABS

TC requires the ABS system to function.

'91-'94 5spd's did NOT have TC even with ABS.

Re: Does my 2000 SW2 have ABS

'98-'02 had no rear disc option; only drums.

'91-'97 SC2's w/ABS got rear disc
'91-'97 SL2's probably got rear disc by default w/ABS
SOHC's I don't think had the disc option (though they should...

Re: Question about suspension compatibility

There's probably a strut change that makes the '91-'95's not identical to '96-'02 but they're still compatible.

The struts are probably shot anyway, I found the S-Series to be light enough to pass...

Re: Cleaning ignition coil pack?

'96-'02 will work but not only are '00-'02's more unreliable...they're harder to remove from the car. You'll see when you get there, unless someone else posts a picture of the stupidity.
