  1. The CRTC is located in the console.
  2. It might be the car thinks it is in "accessory" mode which means only the radio page responds on the CRT. Next time that happens press the radio hard button and then go back to temperature page and see if that makes it work.
  3. In 50 years of driving I have used the e brake maybe 5 times. After you get your issue resolved I would suggest you not use yours either.
  4. Crankshaft sensor. Located under the harmonic balancer
  5. Yes I have. I did it years ago when I swapped out the engine. The balancer was thicket then the original one. I believe I only had to put washers under the lowest bolt, but you might have a different experience.
  6. Just put washers under the stabilizer bracket to give you more clearance.
  7. Jim can you do a write up for us? I have never taken a inner door apart and would be interested in a "How to" with the door intact and removing the rollers to drill them out. thanks!
  8. Mc_Reatta has been gone for 6 years...
  9. Did you try a used from a salvage yard. Just tell them you have a 1991 Reatta and that you need the adapter plate as well.
  10. Still using factory stereo, however I will be switching to a Buick factory stereo from the Buick LeSabre/Park Avenue/ Roadmaster. Same stereo but different looking face plate as I like how those controls are set up better. This has been discussed before, for some reason it is called the "sidewinder".
  11. I installed a Kicker PT250 powered subwoofers in all my Reattas [Actually have two PT250s and a harness in each of my 3 Reattas. Simple plug to swap sub woofer from car to car] with Infinity speakers. Big improvement on sound. I kept the factory tweeters in place. The sub woofer is wired to the rear speakers only. Factory stereo. I think it has great sound. Marketplace has one [used] for sale. $70.00 or best offer with harness.
  12. I found that same hose and clamp in the trunk and never investigated it. Put it in the parts bin until just now. Never knew where it went. Thanks Marck!
  13. Two ideas and both are cheap. Replace the coil pack ignition module with a Delco unit. Jim Finn or Marck at East Coast Reattas can help you out. Also try the crank sensor. Alternator does nothing with starting you car, it runs the electrical system and keeps the battery charged. Starter if it grinds it's good.
  14. That's what I did. I installed the snaps. Not that hard to do yourself, just get a snap kit from big box hardware store, Walmart, Amazon and do it yourself.
