93 vic.

Is it the same as the 94-95? just wondering cause i have a 93 vic and i tried to put it in yes with the coolant and the lom but it was going crazy so i unplugged it. was telling me coolant sensor bad rear lamp failure and everything else but it worked perfect in the 93? just asking cause the wiring is different in the 93.

The bad coolant sensor message can be repaired by soldering on the back of the VIC. Use the search function.

As for bad rear lights, there are lots of bulbs on the back of a ZJ. In the two ZJs that we've had, every time it told me I had a bad light and I thought it was lying, I actually ended up finding a bad rear light.

No bad lights and the coolant sensor worked with no warnings at all in the 93 its only telling me lies since ive put a 93 vic in a in my 94. Again it worked perfect in the 93 with NO messages at all.

My question is does the 93 vic have a different wiring setup than the 94-95 vics? Or will I need the vic from a 94 keep in mind I had a laredo and put limited stuff in it.

Coolant message is a bad solder joint in the vic. A "new" one will most likely do the same.. Remove old VIC then,smash it with a hammer and call it a day.

Sigh.... never said coolant sensor bad in the 93 I drove it to its final resting place and got to play with it. It worked perfect as it should have.

actually I was just curious at this point im happy with my working gdm and since I have the overhead console I can store sunglasses there. I saw a cool link a while back about a vic alarm clock I might just do that instead lol.
