  1. A stinkin 1990 Chevy Lumina A 1987 Sterling 1984 Honda Prelude
  2. Well yesterday i popped the hood and wiggled my Neg battery cable and i havent been having any problems so far. I am assuming i need to change the cable. Where can i get one and is there a specific one i need??
  3. I am speaking from experience and it does not take long at all. I was stupid and broke so i had to drive for 3 months with a bad p/s pump and the alternator was acting funny for the whole time. Change it ASAP!!!
  4. Is changing the neg. battery cable a DIY job?
  5. Thanks i will check the alternator cable and the negative battery cable. Hey Another thing that was weird is today when i shut the car off and i turned on the map light and stepped on the brake the light dimmed out. So would that mean that the problem has to do with the battery since the car was shut off??
  6. i meant that the battery light is functional because i have seen it work before but it hasnt come on while i have been dealing with this issue.
  7. The connectors are clean and have been sanded about 3 or 4 times already. Also in experiencing these problems i have never had the battery light come on as a warning which leaves me to believe the battery might be ok. And the battery light works cuz before this battery it came on to let me kno it was dead
  8. OK here is the story...I changed my alternator about a month ago because it was destroyed by my leaking power steering pump. After it was installed for about a week the car functioned fine with no problem. There was no blinking of the headlights or interior lights when i pressed the brakes or when i had the bass from my system cranked up. Then all of a sudden the ghosts were back! Now again when i press the brakes the dash lights blink and if the headlights are on they blink as well and the radio will pause for about 2-3 seconds. Also if the bass is cranking from my system that causes the light to pulsate as well. The battery has been checked and it supposed to be fine as well as the alternator. Now what is even worse somtimes i get in the car to start it up, i stick the key in and the lights are dim but when i press the brake while turning the key the car comes to life and starts up. But when it starts i still have the same light blink and radio pause problems. Ive cleaned off the ground connection that is kinda under the battery and it is clean. I dont know what else to do and im frustrated now and i aint the most mecanically sound guy either. Any suggestions???? Im thinking maybe the battery is malfunctioning? Or maybe the negative battery cable needs to be changed?? The battery i have is only a year old BTW. Help!!!
  9. Can i just go and get a key cut or does the key have a chip in it because i only have 1 key for my 95 SC400.
  10. I have 2 900watt amps in my sc400. One 2ch to power my 12inch sub and one 4ch to power the interior speakers. What size capacitor should i use?
  11. Thanks tote i will try testing my car the way u said and see whet results i get. i have a feeling that my battery has a problem because last night i look at it and on the top of it i can see what looks like moisture or an oily substance on the top but not at the terminals. Looks almost as if the battery is "perspiring" slightly. This problem is such a pain!!!!
  12. OK I'm sorry if i am addressing a problem that has been addressed many times but I still cant solve mine. I have the common ghost in my electrical system where i experience the headlights and interior lights jump with the bass in the music, the lights jumping with the brakes being applied and the radio pausing for 1-2 sec when i press the brakes. Let me tell you guys what i have tried so far. First i had a powersteering pump leak which has been changed. Now when i did that i thought it solved my problems cuz maybe it was leaking into my alternator. But the alternator looked intact and was functioning ok. I also cleaned the ground wire connection from the battery to the body which had been corroded on the body. That didnt help either. Battery terminals are clean as well. Can someone please tell me what else I could try because besides my leaking rear differential this is my only other problem with my SC. I would luv to get this finally solved...HELP PLEASE!!!
  13. I didnt change the whole LCA, only the bushings. I belive finding a shop shouldnt be hard that will press in the bushings and i belive u can have it done cheaper than i found. But an alignment is necessassary after installing new struts
  14. i kept the same springs cuz in NYC i dont need it any lower than stock height. It still looks great to me!
  15. Hey BCSC300 I got the struts and bushings from TM engineering, they got what u need. Today is day 3 with the new struts on and it feels so firm and steering is so much smoother. Sometime this week i will get a full allignment and then im really good to go.
