Does anyone else have an issue with the high beam indicator light randomly coming on. Not the actual lights just the dash light

Yes, I repair this all the time in the 03-07 classic. If you are handy with a soldering iron and gentle enough to take the cluster apart I can show where to re-flow.

These components are really small and surface mounted on the board, so you need a needle point soldering iron no hotter than 750°F so you don't lift the foil off of the board. You then have to take the lens off without breaking it. Then you have to twist the needles off gently so you don't pull the spindle out of the motors, then separate the 2 halves to expose the board which looks like this.

Right above the High beam LED and cruise bulb is the transistor circuit that lights the high beam LED. The lower resistor of the base bias has lost continuity on one side. I always re-flow the whole circuit Which consist of a transistor, a capacitor the 2 bias resistors ( where red arrows point ) and the bigger driver resistor to the right in the blue oval.

If you aren't comfortable with this pay a pro and get it done right so it don't cost double down the line.

 

To put that resistor in perspective the glass bulb is 4.7mm in diameter.

      As the title says, can anyone in the Houston, TX area recommend me a place to have my AMP Powersteps installed or be willing to help me do them for some compensation and beer?? I was planning to do this myself but have been so busy I can't give 4hrs to stumble through this on my own.. 4Wheel Parts quoted me at $350 which seems a little steep for something that is simply bolted on, a harness run and plugged into the OBDII Port.
       
      Can anybody help me out???
       
       
      Thanks,
      Lance

      My 1999 Chevy Silverado 1500 4x4 lost all oil pressure,  and then a little later engine shut off. Did not make any loud noises, It just died. When we went to restart it, we could here the starter engage, but the engine wouldn't turn over. So we had it towed, and the guy at the tow shop put a wrench on it and tried to turn it, but was unable to. We have done no further troubleshooting, this happened on January 1, 2018.
       
      We assumed it is seized.
      What I am wondering is what you guys think, is it likely that it seized or is something else more likely to be the problem? If it is seized what part would have seized up? And would it be better to rebuild the engine, or to put a new engine in it?
       
      The truck has about 200k miles on it, and ran perfectly before this happened.
      It is the new body style, btw.

      I have the perimeter bed lighting option in my 2015. I was wondering if I can somehow tap into that wiring and add an led strip on the inside of my Diamondback truck cover. I’d like some sort of quick disconnect so I can still remove and replace the cover

      I need help finding a component for my fuel system. I dropped the gas tank in my 2005 GMC Sierra (because of hurricane harvey and the truck has sat for awhile) and found a 90 degree connector with a plug in it, that has a broken hose connection from what looks like a vent line on the rear of the tank. I cannot seem to locate this fitting anywhere, I've looked at autozone, rockauto, oreillys, and various GM parts dealers online with no luck. I've attached pictures of where it's broken.
       
      Do I even need this line? Could I plug it off? If anything I suppose I could tap a new fitting on somehow if push came to shove. Thanks in advance!
