  1. I am having a lot of issues getting the "bonnet" off of the main wiring harness. I am thinking about cutting it away to be able to get to the wires and them taping it back up securely. Any help/advice would be appreciated.
  2. I really appreciate you taking the time to get back to me and also write the encouraging words. I have been very upset since finding all of these problems out. The area that I was trying to go through was the main wiring harness on the driver's side firewall. All that I had read about it, said to just punch straight through. When I hit something, not only was the exacto blade, but a puff of smoke came up as well. Any thoughts on how to get into the main wiring harness to check things out without too much difficulty? Thanks again for all of your help! Jennifer
  3. I am having a serious mechanical/electrical problem and I really am at a loss of where to go. I pretty much tore my truck apart to put new carpet and utility lighting throughout. In doing so, I was trying to go through the main grommet in the firewall with an exacto and it must have hit something. I pulled back and the tip of the exacto was black and bent. Unfortunately, I had the positive of the battery disconnected and not the negative. So I am thinking that I grounded something out. Now, the horn, ac/heater blower, and an airbag notification is on. I checked all the fuses I could find. It looks like they are all intact. I really need some guidance as to what I should do next. Should I replace all of the relays and fuses anyway? Reset the computer? I am truly at a loss and I'm really pissed at myself for putting myself in this position. Let me know what your thoughts are and THANK YOU SO MUCH IN ADVANCE!!!
  4. Thanks so much! I'm sure thinking about doing it just like this. Building a fuse/relay box is looking mighty expensive!! Thanks again for the help!
  5. I am wanting to install several different aftermarket modifications to my truck. The modifications being led lights, backup camera, etc. I would like to use a rocker switch panel instead of wiring each individually. My question is do I need to set up an independent fuse box for this, set up a fuse for each, or only a relay? What is the easiest way to go about this? I hope this makes sense. I am definitely very new when it comes to wiring, but definitely trying to learn. Thanks for any and all help given!
  6. A while back I backed over something and it tore the step pad under my rear bumper on my left side. No other damage was done. But I can't for the life of me figure out how to fix it without buying another one (and I don't want to do that). I've tried plastic welding and I just can't get a good enough pull on it to get it to stay. I thought I would put it on here to see if anyone had any ideas. Thanks in advance!!
  7. My manifold gauges are out of comission, so I am going to try and take care of that tomorrow. I can give you more info with numbers after that. My fans are coming on, but I did not see them coming on in sequence with the compressor.
  8. I am having some trouble getting my AC to cool. Checked the freon and looked like it needed a bit, but when I put only a tiny bit in, the psi went completely into danger zone. The compressor seems to be kicking on fine. When I get up to around 60mph, it cools off more, but today only to 70 degrees. It was 104 here today though. Vents seem to be blowing fine. Any suggestions on what could be going on?
  9. Needing to install a 3" glasspack on 2.75" exhaust. Can someone please give me some help with suggestions on a good way to get them clamped on? I don't want to make it permanent. 3" ID/OD don't fit, so I'm at a loss. And I'm told not to put the muffler over the pipe. Do I need to go smaller?
  10. First off, thank you so much for your advice. What do you think about the dynomax 17797 super turbo? I can get a great deal on it and it checks all the boxes. This way it's a 2.75" and hopefully I don't have to jump through so many hoops. Let me know any opinions.
  11. Thanks so much for the help! I have been racking my brain trying to figure out how to make this work!!
  12. What size stepped band clamps would I use if I go this route? 3" to 2.75"? I can't thank you enough for your help!!
  13. I have a 2012 GMC Sierra 1500 with 2.75" exhaust pipe. I am wanting to delete my muffler and add a glasspack without welding. Problem is, I can't find any adapters to fit anything. Do I go with a 3" or a 2.5" glasspack? And whichever one I go with, what size adapters/reducers do I use? The muffler shops in this area charge around $350 for this work, so that's the reason for doing it myself. I appreciate any help given!!
