  1. Hi Josh, Yeah I had a similar issue with the "hard Pushing" of the button before mine blew up too. As far as keeping it all together you may have to get a used switch, or see if someone here has a bad one that they would sell you. One important thing about these switches is if there are any loose or non-operable parts inside the switch it will cause arcing which would completely melt the switch or even worse cause a fire which you do not want. The reason for this is there is power available to the switch even without the ignition on - so be careful.
  2. Yes Ronnie I still use most of the data there, either for diagnostics or regular maintenance. As said previously if you can keep it going it would be great.
  3. Hi Stanley, Yeah those are the worst to remove. I tugged on mine for what seemed like an hour but finally after a lot of force they came apart. They are like the speaker connections on some cars that have a tiny pin on the blade end (male) that fits into the terminal end hole (female).
  4. Yes the BCM is behind the glove box and is removed that way. The ECM is also behind the glove box but is removed from under the glove box, you will have to remove a few of the vacuum lines in order to pull it out all the way - It is kinda tricky. I hope it is the same for the 89' if not please correct me someone - Sorry if I am wrong. Do you have a FSM Factory Service Manual, if not you might want to get one.
  5. Thanks Ronnie for clearing that up, I couldn't remember what it was called. Mine is broken and like you CBChadwell I have foregone the idea of tearing into the dash to fix it so I just live with it the way it is for now.
  6. Wait WHAT! the odometer is actually increasing the miles??? So the computer actually thinks the car is going 124mph ... Hmmmm
  7. Sorry I didn't mean to jump to conclusions - Check the other things suggested above and let us know what your results are.
  8. You always find the best deals and 'Picks' Dave
  9. I actually found one last year for a whopping $95.00 I guess I found it at just the right time It wasn't NOS but from a low mileage car and still had the purple sticker untouched.
  10. Does air come through the vents when you switch it to them, (not defrost or floor but bi-level) if not then the mix door that controls the direction of the air - the arm may be broken.
  11. Like Barney and Dave said there are many on eBay, for example; reattapartscalifornia - eBay seller just recently discounted (if you want to call it a discount) a NOS 90' Headlight switch for $506.59 orig $595.99 so yeah they are going to be highly priced.
  12. "COMPLETELY DESTROYED BY YOU" Reading that just made me cringe 😢
  13. Nittany, That is interesting, would you know if the factory added those stripes over top of the painted one or are you saying that the owners did it? Reason I ask is mine had the vinyl stripes put on over top of the painted ones, but they were the exact same color...Hmmmm? I have since removed all of the vinyl stripes since they were coming off in places, plus I think the original pinstripe looks best and I can brag about it being hand painted.
  14. About 10 or so years ago I bought a solar panel from Cal Ranch (Not sure if you have one where you live) for about $30. It is 15" square (They had other larger sizes too) with an aluminum frame plus it is weather resistant. It came with several adapters and I even used it to charge my tablet one year, but it took several hours to charge to 100%. It also works on cloudy days but not very well, full sunny days are best.

    About 4watts depending upon the voltage at that point in time when measured ....
