I added LEDs to my Cobalt cup holders that come on with dome lights.

#1936176 Sometimes, I wonder about the sanity of my local government...

Posted by Coby7 on 08 February 2017 - 10:17 PM

Looks good when I face the other way.  But frankly government doesn't look at how pretty they are.  They purchase from who ever offers them the best vacation. 

 

But frankly those are gross.... I could have done better with crayolas

Looks like a lot of work for a few lights but might be worth it for a DIY Pictorial.


I think this may take a few days.  lol

I think he purchased the car at an auction ( Just came with a key ) for his wife and since one of his buddies had the same car with no remote start he assumed his was the same.  His comment and this is no lie, '' The wife is going to be so happy that she can warm up the car before getting in it in the morning, I may score tonight ''  As for his look it was priceless!!!

This guy came over wanting a FOB programmed for his 2011 Impala until he could get enough cash to get a remote starter installed.  I said no problem but before I started the programming I looked at his RPO list and noticed it already had a factory remote start (AP3).  So not telling him I programmed 2 FOBs even though he only wanted one.  Then pulled the key out while he's sitting on the passenger completely clueless, I locked/unlocked the doors then I locked and remote started the car.  You should have seen his eyes, cheapest and fastest remote start install he ever saw lol. He bought both FOBs lol. An other happy customer.




#1934678 What oil are you using.

Posted by Coby7 on 06 February 2017 - 07:23 PM

GM recommends 0-W20. but eversince I got my truck I was having lifter noise and well it had a new oil change when I got it and endure this click-click for 3000 miles, then when it came time to change the oil since I didn't know what was put in last, I opted for my trusted Valvoline 5-W20 full synthetic. The ticking persist for a couple of weeks ever so slightly seemingly getting better after every start.  Well today I remotely started my truck because it was fridgide outside and when I walked to it to my surprise I thought I had gone deaf in my left ear so  I did a 180 only to hear the same thing ''NOTHING''. I couldn't believe it so when I got to my destination I killed it went in and when I came out waited until I was right beside the truck to remotely start it to see if I would get a lifter click and ''NOTHING'' came home got out without turning it off right away and ''NOTHING'' . That was this morning so before I decided to write this book went out and stood beside my truck and remotely started it and ''NOTHING'' (-13°C / 9°F ).  So if I lose .1MPG using 5-W20 so be it at least I have peace of mind of a quiet engine and maybe my cam lobe isn't shot like rumors on here.




#1934645 Can this be removed?

Posted by Coby7 on 06 February 2017 - 06:46 PM

These drive me up a wall, such an eyesore on an expensive machine. These are already in the manual, why do we need a reminder every f*****n day.  We read the manual, we know, same with the passenger mirror ''Objects are closer than they appear'' duh!!! Luckily the french sticker is in the side window and nothing a razor blade can't remove but the english part is f****n etched in the glass. Imagine buying a $5000 sofa for your house and it had a big f****n yellow sticker '' this couch is void of warranty if your dog jumps on it or if you remove this sticker''.

A few months back somebody gave me an old defective cluster, I didn't realise it then that it was an 06-07 classic and put it aside.  This morning cleaning the shop a bit I came upon it and said to myself what the hell lets see if I can resurrect this baby and put it up for sale.

Some barbarian had been into it and nothing worked.  He had stripped The idiot LEDs for CEL, ABS, Seat belt and emergency brake. By doing so knocked off a few components, one in the high voltage circuit supplying the odometer display, background bulbs were cracked and burnt and most of the gauge motors were bad.  I scratched my head and wasn't sure I wanted or felt like doing this this morning.  But one by one I tackled each obstacle and when I got the odometer display going and saw it only had 214502 Kms then I really wanted to get her going.  Replaced all missing components and stepper motors and LEDed in cool white.  It turned out pretty good and every thing works, I think. Need a truck to test it in now.

There's always a first in a domain, I just repaired a cluster for a 2005 DuraMax six speed manual standard cab long bed. See the 5K Tach... I'd say it's a pretty rare truck.  High beam indicator didn't work, left blinker bulb was missing, broken selector switch for odometer display burnt background bulbs and a bunch of other stuff.  To my surprise all motors worked good.

#1932705 Can this be removed?

It can be removed and as for the left over glue, you take duct tape ''Gorilla'' works real good and dab the the left over glue with the sticky side.

 

Ce collant peut être facilement enlevé, ''Gorilla'' duct tape marche très bien pour la colle résiduelle.

#1932291 Remote Entry Inop

Posted by Coby7 on 02 February 2017 - 05:05 PM

Also the procedure you have fails to mention that you have a limited time to do this, once you insert the key and press and hold the unlock button you only have like 10-15 seconds to cycle the ignition twice or it will not work.  Here is the written procedure I use and it works every time. Make sure all doors are unlocked before you start.

 

1.      Close all vehicle doors. 

2.      Insert the key into the ignition.    

3.      Hold down the power UNLOCK button on the driver’s door panel-continue to hold
      down until instructed to release in step 9.
   

4.      Perform steps 5 through 8 in fairly rapid succession.   

5.      Turn the ignition switch to the ON position (as far as you can go without starting the
      engine).

6.      Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.

7.      Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.

8.      Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position. 

9.      Release the power unlock button on the door panel. The vehicle will lock and unlock
      the doors automatically.
 
   

10.  Hold down the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the transmitter simultaneously until
      the door locks and unlocks. 
      This step may take up to 30 seconds.
 
   

11.  Repeat step 10 NOW for each additional transmitter (including any existing
      transmitters).
 
   

12.  Turn the ignition switch to the ON position in order to exit the transmitter programming
      mode.
