Re: Power source for aftermarket radio

XE doesn't have steering wheel controls.

I just remembered that Connects2 makes a harness that retains steering wheel controls and gives you an accessory-switched 12v source. It also emulates the...

Re: Power source for aftermarket radio

The factory radio is supplied constant power in its harness. The can-bus sends a signal to the radio when the ignition is on.

Aftermarket radios need a switched power source (so you don't forget...

Re: Spot what's wrong with this suspension

Yep. Interestingly the passenger side is fine. So the car has two right side struts installed.

The seller is looking for his receipt and calling the shop to figure out what was done. If they...

Spot what's wrong with this suspension

Just bought an 05 Ion for my sister-in-law from an individual. He said he recently had front suspension parts replaced (but didn't know what, he's not a car guy). I noticed on the test drive it was...

Re: Bad front wheel bearings confuses ABS?

I remember the same thing when I had my VUE, but it was the reverse. I had the ABS light come on when I made sharp turns. Some time (months?) later the bearing started making noise. Changing the...

Re: Potential buyer has a few questions

The lien just means that someone got a loan to buy the car. It could also mean someone went to a title loan shark and got a loan off the car. Just make sure the title you are given either doesn't...

Re: Timing Chain Broke

Good idea with the hoses. I'll have them check. The water pump was replaced last year after it developed a leak.

Timing Chain Broke

Well, at 165k the timing chain broke on my 02 L200. I was aware of the potential problem, but the cost of replacing it with the updated kit would have been rather expensive as a preventative measure...

They may ask to verify...

The four covers are available individually from the dealer. I got one. It was about $35.

Re: Efi

GM does have engines designated as "LS2". That shouldn't be confused with the car named LS2.

Quick internet search shows that 1990 was the last year for a factory carbureted car.

Re: Am I getting played?

In my 04 VUE the back element went out on the driver's seat. It is wired in series, so even the good bottom element wouldn't work. Search the forum here for diagnostic steps. With a multimeter,...

Re: The Astra Is For Sale

$9,000 is actually the buy it now price. I did a lot of research, and the price seems to be fair. You also have to consider the bump up in dealer prices. People will usually pay more to buy from a...

Re: GM Closes Saturn...Why?

Economics. Whatever the cause, Saturn wasn't making money. GM had too many brands, and getting rid of a brand is extremely difficult and costly. Bankruptcy gave GM the opportunity to shed brands...

Re: Found a way to "fix" the flickering dash lights

Here are the steps (from memory, so may be vague).

Remove the panel below the vent. I think you just pull it off.
Remove the vent assembly by removing one screw that is now revealed.

As we know the dash light dimmer switch is poorly designed and often fails. It results in the dash lights flickering, especially in my case when adjusting the switch. Not wanting to buy a used...

Re: Thank You for Participating in SaturnFans.com's 2012 Saturn Reunion, Should We Do

That's the second photo of the prototype I've seen, and I haven't seen it before now. A great find. I wonder where that car is now? I'd love to know more about it.
