    Just to round this out....

    As per my post earlier, car kept running with the CEL, and the tech II indicated an ignition fault. But nothing seemed to be wrong.

    Re: "Check Engine"

    I had/have the same issue. I got a Tech2 reading and the garage came back with "ignition problem". But as in your case I see absolutely no problems.
    I have now left this alone for 2 years with no...

    Re: Lost my car key button thingy

    Hi,
    which key type is it? Separate fob and key or metal key and buttons as one piece?

    Re: Replacing Key Fob Remote

    That is just the plastic case, without the working electronics.
    Apart from the ones that require some sort of new box inside the car, the ebay fobs are all used

    Re: Replacing Key Fob Remote

    Thanks. That one is in the USA, and doesn't deliver to France (no idea why).
    There are a few on ebay in the US, hence my question if anyone had any experience with ordering from there. Not sure if...

    Hi Lizzard-t

    Re: Replacing Key Fob Remote

    Hi Telsun
    I couldn't find any on ebay.fr or .co.uk, except expensive and odd verions that are for a Jaguar (maybe they work) or need a new box inside the car.

    Seem to be a few used ones on...

    Replacing Key Fob Remote

    Seems that the remote key fob (the separate item, 2 button) is no longer available from most sources. Just as I lose one and the other one has a damaged button and needs a sharp object to activate...

    Re: key won't turn, locked in reverse

    Just to clarify, the most anti-clockwise key position is where the key can be withdrawn and the reverse-lock is engaged (where mine was stuck).

    Next position (one click clockwise) is "OFF",...

    Re: key won't turn, locked in reverse

    Hi Alpenflitzer
    that sequence is fine IF you can turn the key to the "OFF" position. In my case the key inserted/removed just fine but would not turn out of "LOCK". So no way to use the welding...

    Re: key won't turn, locked in reverse

    Tried the "push pull" option, and looked down the hole in the top of the gearbox where you are supposed to place a 4mm dia screwdriver to lock it in 4th.
    Saw a hole that lined up, dropped in the...

    Just to add some information.
    Reconnected the plug to the distributor. Pulled fuse 17 for 30 mins, still had the CEL. Pulled fuse 17 and 28 for a good while, CEL cleared. Not sure if it was the...
  20. Re: GM900 2.0 runs with Hall Sensor disconnected

    Hi Paul,
    Yes this is really the last use of distributors. You can't adjust the timing/rotate the dizzy, and no points. It really is just a way of using only one coil and sending the spark to the...
  21. GM900 2.0 runs with Hall Sensor disconnected

    Had a CEL for a while, but the car ran just fine. Went to the dealer for something else, and asked them to check the diagnostics. Answer was something to do with the Distributor/Ignition.

    Re: Oil change?

    Re: GM 900, dip beam fuse blowing

    Tried with the bulb connector off, still blew. So I think it eliminates the earth.
