He was wondering why his speedometer wasn't working, look at one of the pins that never made it through the board, it just curled up and never made it through the hole for the pin.

Today I refurbished 2 HD clusters an 03 and an 04 and ordered 1000 more stepper motors.  Maxed out my credit card lol.

Moderators can't see everything bad going on here, it's up to us to be vigilant and report all  suspected post. I hit that report button as often as I see due fit.  Maybe sometimes I'm paranoid but so far 7 for 7.

Yup, this means it failed to flash 3 times in a row.  Maybe good now but (burnt/broken ) filaments will tend to do this. Replace both since the other side is probably about to die too.




#1979682 Cant Do BurnOut In New Truck

Posted by Coby7 on 30 April 2017 - 04:04 PM

A truck is an investment when you need it to make money, buying a truck to do burnouts is not a keen investment. Consider a pair of Michelins at $640 plus tax plus installation and balancing (very little if it's a Michelin) I would rather you smoke a joint. Money better spent. I paid over $1500 for 4 Michelins, I'll be damned if I'm going to waste any of that money on a burnout.




#1979611 Tire pressure is wrong on my dash ?

Simple enough if you have one of these.

Does discount tire reprogram these every time I get a rotation? I didn't know. I thought the sensor just automatically reads whatever tire is closest to its position on the truck.
 

They should but it's called discount not Quality Tires. 




#1979467 Outside temp reading way off!

Yes, it's behind the grill, maybe it just needs the contacts cleaned.  Add a bit of dielectric grease while you're at it.

Doesn't the CX-5 have proximity sensors for collision avoidance?

 

I guess I'm lucky that mine only runs over the garbage bags, then drags and spreads it all over the city.  I keep my vehicles clear from where she's going to be, in fact I keep them in a separate driveway. Good habit I took when I had the Corvettes.

Yesterday I received my little video screen microscope about 2 days late.

 

I think this is going to help my eyes a lot.

In the shop today I finally got that cluster to shut down after ignition power removed, spent at least 4 hours under microscope and finally found a crack in the solder. Re-flowed and it hasn't failed in 100 attempts. Then repaired the dead PRND321 display, I replaced the stepper motors and bulbs with cool white. This is a GFX special edition and looks particularly nice in cool white with the silver backing.

Don't think I made minimum wage on this one, but the guy will be happy to see it work again. That's all that counts for me.  My eyes burn and I will probably have plenty of eye crispies in the morning but I'll survive.

I dump a bottle of GM #88861011 Fuel system treatment plus. It helps keep the sending unit wiper clean amongst other things.

#1977030 keyless entry?

Posted by Coby7 on 25 April 2017 - 06:55 AM

If it's the new style body, the RCDLR was a little kwirky and sometimes would lose programming. I found 2 solutions, one was to remove the fuse for the RCDLR and wait 10 seconds, plug it back in and try your remotes. If this doesn't work try reprogramming them, the 07 has on board programming.
