  1. 97 Chevy full size PU. Cruise control does not engage. Everything else checks out OK. Replaced brake light switch. Did not help. The following code is set periodically. P0719 (Torque Converter/Brake Switch B Circuit Low. I cancel the code and it sets again about 200 miles later. Can any one tell me where/what this code means - "Brake Switch B Circuit Low". I do not have a wiring diagram - where is this "Brake Switch B Circuit"? Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks in advance. J M Hellman Lubbock, TX
  2. 90 Reatta, daily driver, 81K miles. Saw smoke comming out of the steering column and then the IPC went blank. Pulled steering wheel and turn signal switch - did not see any burnt wires anywhere Everything on the steering column functions ok. When I try to enter the "Diagnostics" nothing happens - the IPC will not light up? Only lights on the IPC is the air bag light and the brake lights (red & yellow). Any suggestions? Should I pull the IPC and look for some burnt/shorted wires or what?? Thanks for any heplp/suggestions you can offer. J.M. Hellman Lubbock Texas
  3. <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" /> Any recommendations on a GPS that I can use in my Reatta? Source? Cost? Hertz uses Magellan 750M in some of their rent cars. It worked great but I think those are about $1650! Any suggestions? Thanks. J. M.

  6. What size transmission oil cooler do you suggest for a Reatta? Use it as a daily driver in Texas (90 coupe). Did you bypass the radiator as I think Barney suggested and not let the radiator reheat the transmission oil? <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif" alt="" /> J. M.

  9. I have a 90 and it has continuous stripes. I am pretty sure the paint is original - if it isn't somebody did a very good paint job on it. I was told that the paint was original. The stripes are the only thing that does not look factory. BTW - my car came from Oklahoma?? <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif" alt="" /> J. M. Hellman Lubbock TX
  10. Robert, I have not been able to find the "poor boy" synthetic autotransmission fluid at our Wal Mart. What is the name on it. I know from previous posts you even listed the product #! Thanks. J. M. Hellman
  11. I am attempting to remove the shift indicator assembly but cannot determine what holds it in place!! Are there any screws holding it in place? How should I get it to slide up/off the shift lever? Thanks for any advice you can give me. <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" /> J.M. Hellman
  12. Howard, What type of problem were you having with your PWs? I have a 90 and both of the windows are very sloooow!! <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif" alt="" /> Is that the motors or the switches? <img src="http://www.aaca.org/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" /> Thanks.

  13. I have had that same problem on my 90. I finally realized that the rubber washer did not come out of the radiator with the petcock. Just take a small screwdriver and go up into the radiator and pull the flat rubber washer out and put it on the petcock and it will screw in easily. J. M.
