I almost adjusted the front bands on my tranny until I realized I need a 5/16 square socket.... maybe tomorrow.

Resoldered my headlight switch and GDM, touched up contacts in the VIC I have while I was at it. Seriously thinking about hacking this VIC in for cool factor. I have an Arduino Uno and it's super easy to write a program to make it mock up a 5V signal on up to 13 pins, plus a few analog outputs if necessary. I think I only need the coolant, washer fluid, and rear lamp sensor signals, so it should be super simple to get those up and running on the uno. If that's the case, I'll just have to get a head unit with a rear USB port and use that to power the uno, so I can have some fun VIC stuff.

That said, I don't know if it'll work without some other wiring stuff. Connectors are the same, but they appear to have different wires in them, according to a diagram I found.

Was your door closed sensor not showing open or closed?

Now, I like that idea. Great use for my UNO too. You could just pull 12v from a switched source and destroy a 12v->USB adapter to get the +5V to run it.

It was showing open and wouldn't register closed which in turn kept my alarm from arming ever. I just swapped the right rear with the right front and works just fine. My other option was to just disconnect it since if the connector isn't sensing a ground it just registers as always closed.

My drivers side ones work about 1 time out of 10.....i.e. they show open almost never.

Garage
Vacuumed the interior, wiped all of the dust off, hosed the outside off, dried it off, parked it.

All about that unibody life.

Fixed my linkage again for the 100th time

I hate when old people poke me at weddings, point and whisper, "You're next." So I've started doing the same thing to them at funerals
