Mine's the original 93 VIC, still works perfectly. Tells me the washer fluid is low and I check, it is and I add some. Tells me the brake light is out and I find a bad bulb. Tells me the oil is low and sure enough it's right below the fill line. The only thing it ever has done was completely die about six months ago. Took it apart and found a bad capacitor. Soldered a new one in and it's been working fine.

Xcaliber, hook up with a fsm for a 93 for a wiring diagram. I'm not familiar with earlier versions of the vic, but a 98 recieves the open door signals from the switch via the ccd bus /bcm.

The only issue I've had with the VIC in either 93' I've owned is a bad oil level sensor which I shut up with a resistor, but otherwise it has worked flawlessly. Which is especially nice considering I had to refill my antifreeze for a good month repeatedly on the count of a bad water pump.

Sure about that? It will give you the RLF if your rear side marker lights are burnt out. Easy to overlook those tiny bulbs.

I would clean the brake light contacts on the truck side. I did find corrosion on the contacts and that changes the resistance values for the vic console, and thus fixing the error massage.

so I changed the bulb and i put in the vic to see if rear lamp failure went out however it did not. Also it told me to check engine oil level but the thing is its actually low how does it know this I've never hooked up any sensors for that?

Check to see if there is a sensor in the oilpan. If not it may be a default responce.

My 93 has the oil level sensor. RockAuto sells the oil pan with the sensor hole and the sensor: if you have the pigtail hanging there you could easily add that sensor.
