    Memory seats and telescoping column

    Recently purchased '08 base coupe. Telescoping steering column inoperative. Power seats function properly. When trying to set memory driving position and exit position I get all the appropriate beeps but the seat, mirror, telescoping column and exit memory functions dont seem to work. Remove...

    Canadians - Autoheadlight defeat

    Being an electronic tech, I tend to shy away from creating direct short circuits on the inputs or outputs of those expensive computer modules when I'm not certain what effect it would have. If you can get away with it - great! - saves searching around for a resistor.

    1-4 Upshift Relay

    1992 Coupe LT1/ZF6 The service manual (page 8A-201-15) shows the 1-4 shift relay as 2nd from the right in a bank of 4 relays near the battery. My car only has 2 relays in that area. Obviously a different configuration than the manual. Sure would appreciate if someone could point me toward the...

    "High" RPM

    >>I've even been known to drop the clutch at 5000 just to smoke the tires.<< Thats pretty gutsy. Dont think I'd ever do that, but after reading everyone's opinions I guess I dont have to be so nervous about taking it up to the red-line. Thanks for all the responses Rod

    Battery drain test

    No, I think you have it backwards. Unless your meter is an oddball, the 10 amp configuration is UNFUSED and the 'milliamps' is FUSED. If you used the 'milliamp' configuration and the current was more than about 250 milliamps, it probably blew the fuse right away without you even knowing it...

    "High" RPM

    Many years ago when I drove a 429 CobraJet I got into a stop-light race and the darn thing ate a valve at high rpm which chewed up the valve seat, piston and cylinder wall. Plus I've been driving a diesel truck for a number of years. The red-line there is 3500 rpm. For these reasons I'm quite...

    Battery drain test

    I forgot to mention, when measuring current: as long as you are fairly certain the current will be less than 10 amps (much more than 10 amps will probably burn out your meter as that input is usually un-fused), it is good practice to measure on the 10 amp scale first. Then if the current is...

    Battery drain test

    Either the meter is broken or you are reading it incorrectly. I suspect the meter. The reading of .14 milliamps is 140 microamps which, as you know, is nothing. I would suggest opening your meter and have a look at the fuse. I cant see your picture clearly enough, but most digital meters in...

    1992 Corvette CD Stereo

    Bought 1992 Corvette last summer. It is mint except the CD player normally doesnt work with any CD. It takes in the CD, tries to read it for 15 seconds or so then spits the CD back out. Only once, about a month after I bought it, it played just fine and sounded great. It played every CD I put...

    1992 CD Player Malfunction

    It wont play store-bought CDs (except once). If its problematic because of a design fault then it may be best to just save time and effort and scrap it to install a high-end radio/CD. As long as it can be done without looking like a hack job.....

    1992 CD Player Malfunction

    I've tried using the CD player in my '92 coupe a few dozen times. It usually just displays "ERR" and spits the CDs back out, which seems to indicate it cant read the CDs. One time it worked perfectly and sounded really good with several different CDs. I did a search but all I could find was...

    Canadians - Autoheadlight defeat

    I really enjoy my new '92 coupe but one of the things that annoyed me was the automatic headlight feature which turned on the headlights when in my garage and in other places and times when I didn't necessarily want the headlights on. I knew there had to be a way to defeat it, but I couldn't...

    1992 Passive Keyless Entry

    Thanks, guys, for your responses. All considered, I think I will just go with the keyless entry feature of an aftermarket alarm. It will also give me the remote hatch release. I damn near soiled my undies when I found out the price of a replacement GM fob. Rod.

    1992 Passive Keyless Entry

    New to me 1992 Coupe with power locks. When I bought the car, all I got were the keys. This morning the sun hit the dash just right and on the driver info center I could see the words "Passive Keyless Entry" but the words dont light up with the key-on self diagnosis. But half the dash lights...

    1992 Hesitation while cornering

    Perhaps ATC action. Happened to me once during a sharp left uphill turn under hard acceleration.

    C4 Wheels

    >>I've also heard that if you mount them backwards it will cause the car to fly like an eagle.<< Oh, I see. I guess that would explain why the rear wheels spin so much. :)
