  1. Diagnostics tool compatable with Mac ?

    Click on your name in the upper right hand corner of this page. Select "Account Settings" from the dropdown menu. Select "Signature" from the menu on the left of the Setting page. Edit your signature and then click "Save" at the bottom of the page. If you need more help let me know and I will be happy to help.
  2. Diagnostics tool compatable with Mac ?

    If you will take the time to learn this instruction booklet for the diagnostics it will be time well spent. It's a little complicated at first but once you learn how to use it you will see that the on-board diagnostics will tell you about anything you need to know about the computer systems on the Reatta. Good luck with your new Reatta!
  3. Transmission linkage came loose

    I would look under the hood first to see if the cable (3) has come loose from the gear selector arm (5) on the transmission. Then check the cable where it connects to the shifter inside the console.

    Jimbo, What is the model of your Reatta? If you could add the model and other information about your Reatta to your signature line it would be helpful. I'm almost certain that scanner won't work for your Reatta. Is is an ODB-II scanner which isn't comparable with the OBD-I system used in the Reatta. Are you not able to get the on-board diagnostic system to work that is built into the Reatta? It has a lot more information than that scanner would have.

    Beautiful photo. It reminds me of what Charlie Daniels said, " Ain't it good to be alive, and be in Tennessee! ".
  7. Favorite Pictures of My Buick Reatta

    We had really nice weather today considering it's February. Temperature was about 76 degrees. The wife wanted me to do a few house repairs but I thought it was stupid to waste a nice day doing that so I took off and drove my Reatta instead.
  8. Needs Help1990 Reatta Headlight Repair

    That's because your metal gear doesn't have the solid section on the shoulder of it like the white plastic gear does. The area where there is no teeth (marked in red in my photo) is what makes the plastic gear hard to remove from the gearbox on the passenger side. You have to force that past the worm gear and it can sometimes be difficult.
  9. Question about salt

    Good advice in my opinion.
  10. Just checking in.

    I believe he has said before that his car was lowered with Photoshop.
  11. 91 Headlight question

    Welcome to the forum! The problem isn't likely to be the controller. I think the information you need can be found in this topic. Headlight behavior I think you need a headlight kit that includes the bellcrank (aka crankarm) If you have you have questions feel free to ask.

    Did you disconnect the battery to replace the ICM? If so that might account for the rough idle. The ECM goes through a short learning process when first started after the battery has been disconnected. Just a guess...
  13. Headlight behavior

    From what I know about the plastic bushings they will slip or shear to prevent damage to other components of the gearbox in case there is an obstruction to the door opening or some fool tries to force the door shut. Some people call the bushings rollers but they don't roll. The just connect the white gear with the bellcrank shaft under normal operation. Did replacing the bushings fix the problem with your headlight doors not working properly?

    Another nice looking Reatta. I believe this one was submitted for the 2014 calendar by forum member ol' yeller.

    Congrats! Nice looking Reatta.
