  1. Test the battery cables. -Set your multimeter to 12 volts DC. -Put one lead from your meter on the negative battery post. (not the cable) -Put the other lead from your meter on a clean metal spot on the engine block for a ground. -Turn on the headlights and then have a helper try to start the engine. If the meter reads any voltage you have a bad connection or a bad battery cable. It should read 0 volts. You can do the same test with your meter between the positive battery post and the lug where the battery cable connects to the starter solenoi
  2. @Peter Gariepy Try clicking the links in the main menu on the main AACA site. It appears they are no longer clickable links but are instead just plain text. Only the HOME button works.
  3. That is the first time I've seen posts archived on this forum. Other forums I've been on have used archiving to save space in the database which makes the forum operate a little faster. Archiving can be turned off and archived posts can be restored to normal but Peter will be the one to make that decision. I personally don't like the archiving but Peter may have his reasons for archiving posts.
  4. How can I reproduce this archiving problem? I'm able to search my posts all the way back to 2007 and I don't see any indication that my posts were archived. Are the archived posts changed some way or unable to be read?
  5. I like that you can tell who started the thread (Author) by looking on the right side of the screen as you scroll through a long thread.
  6. It's most likely the blower control module causing the problem. I've heard of the module failing and causing the blower to run several times. Try unplugging it and see if the blower motor stops.
  7. Going through a forum update is like moving into a new house. You know all your stuff is in the new house but it can be aggravating trying to figure out where it all is. It wouldn't make sense to move back into the old house that was badly needing improvements just because you have a hard time finding your favorite pair of shoes. Nor would it make sense to roll back a forum upgrade just because old folks like us are set in our ways and don't like changes. "Letting the members be involved with making or not making changes might be a good idea." With over 92,000 members on th
  8. When you click on "Ignore User" the next screen will allow you to select what you want to ignore. Telling a member you want them to know you are ignoring them is best done with a Private Message as nicely as the forum rules will allow. I'm not ignoring 1937hd34. This is just an example screenshot that shows your ignore options.
  9. I agree with you Peter but I handle it a little different in the Reatta Buy/Sell forum where we have a thread dedicated to Craigslist, eBay, Etc. posts. Instead of deleting the posts, I edit them and mark them as expired as shown below. That preserves the information the posts contain for future reference while letting members know that the link to the vehicle for sale is no longer valid so they can pass over it and move on to the next post if they choose to do so. Just a thought... ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  10. I saw your drawing of a part in another thread. Could you show us an example of a finished product you have made for a car?
  11. This is a known issue that is being addressed. You can read more about it here: Outage on the website www.aaca.org
  12. Same error message when using Internet Explorer on a different computer.
  13. 1. I use Firefox and as of 3:50 PM I get the same error message when trying to access the aaca.org website. Give it some time and this problem might correct it's self. @Peter Gariepy may need to look into fixing it if the problem persists. 2. The option to delete posts is no longer available to forum members. You should be able to "Hide" a post by clicking on the three dots at the top-right of your posts.
  14. Carburetors with a small bore keep the air velocity higher in the intake system when the engine is running at low RPMs. Keeping the velocity higher through the intake system helps maintain a better air/fuel mixture in the combustion chamber at low RPMs, Small bore carburetors can produce more low RPM torque compared to large bore carburetors but it comes at the expense of losing horsepower at high RPMs.
  15. Lamar, For some reason Mark Forum Read is at the bottom of the list of topics on my android based phone.
  16. Sadly you may be right. The only other suggestion I could make is try adjusting your screen settings for brightness and contrast. You should be seeing a very light color on the background of quotes that makes them stand out. Maybe adjusting the screen settings will allow you to see that.
  17. I can understand your frustration. Are you not able to click on "Expand" and see the entire quote as shown in the photos below? Quote: This is the quote expanded:
  18. Anyone ever thought about what the exhaust pipe on electric cars look like?
  19. Peter, Sidebars seems to be randomly showing up in threads. Below is a link to a thread in the Buick Reatta forum that has a sidebar. It is the largest thread in the Reatta forum. Could that have something to do with why the sidebar is there?
  20. Move your mouse over the profile photo of the person you want to PM and a box will pop up. Click on "Message" in the bottom left corner of the box that pops up.
  21. That number isn't the latest one but it is for an '89: ECM PROM List
  22. It has a unique feature on the dash that I've not seen before on a Reatta. That is what I call thinking outside the box... glove box that is.
  23. Chance of what? Getting all the fluid out? Fixing a problem you are having? What?
