If I think about it and there is any interest, I'll take some pictures and post a tutorial.Iím working on an ECM pinout test how-to for Colton, if any of you are interested in any of the others let me know as Iím not going to waste a bunch time if there is no interest.


If you do decide to write some tutorials, just do em in word or something, and I can take that and make it a page on the site....you could start a whole new section..."Tutorials".

Tutorial section is now up.  Only has the one article.  If you want to submit an article write it up in a post, and I'll transfer it over.  Pictures are a definite plus.

Cranford just e-mailed me a tech article on heater bypass, just added it, and it can be seen Here

We now have 17 articles, you can see the list by clicking the Tech DB link in the header (top of page).

Another tech article added.
This time to cover the hot topic of how to convert a base Firebird (with separate brake lights and turn signals) to a GTA style tail lights (with integraed brake lights and turn signals).
Converting a base Firebird to GTA tail lights

It's easier than I originally thought.

The picture is not supposed to be absolutely complete and accurate. It only illustrates the three lightbulbs in question, I didn't need to show more.
Is it too confusing? Should I add more bulbs?
You know what they say: "the less, the simpler". I purposely didn't add the back up lightbulb and park lamp wires (brown) to keep it as simple and as readable as possible. Do you think adding more would help or not?

But the red section has 4 bulbs. The amber & Reverse sections aren't needed, but if you are showing the Red section, why not show what's there? 4 bulbs...Only using 2 of the 4?

I think only two bulbs in the red section actually are dual-filament. Those are the ones I intented to illustrate. Or am I wrong? Are there more brake bulbs on each side?

There are two brake lights on each side. The outer two on each side are the brake lights. The inner two on each side are single filament running lights. Dual filament sockets need to be spliced in in their place (robbing a connection from the brake wire) if you plan on doing STS with more than two lights per side.

Ok, I broke down and finally wrote a tech article on Troubleshooting the starter circuit because so many people have lately had a no-start problem.

Enjoy!
