      This is probably a bit paranoia and misunderstanding. I've programmed for over 20 years and the main difference in these settings in iOS's location manager is simply that when a...

      If you are that serious, why not just pay for LoJack or get a hardwired unit that is more difficult to discover and find and more reliable? There are plenty of services out there that aren't contract...

      You don't need to change the wiring harness. The automatic TCU is separate from the ECU and you can just disconnect it and change the coding in the ECU to a manual car with VCDS. You will need manual...

      Didn't do it for looks and the hood was already damaged. If you read the post, I had to put small dents in the hood where the grommets are because the pins in the Daystar kit are too short....

      Couple of photos for anyone else who needs to do this to get by. The Daystar pins are only 3.25" in length. To mount in the same area without issue and to allow for adjustment, you'd need pins that...

      I'd check the condition of the timing belt and make sure the timing marks all line up. A CPS code is common when the timing is off. It's more common if someone replaced the distributor at some point...

      Fuse 18 is for the fuel pump and oxygen sensor. If it were blown your car would not run at all. The load reduction relay is not in position 18. It's in position 4 and typically stamped with an 18....

      If you think the battery is still good, I'd just get a charger. They're good to have around. I don't have anything fancy, just some old trickle charger from the 70s that can switch between 2 and 8...

      I planned on making brackets, but after looking at it, realized the distribution block on top of the battery is in the way. I ended up mounting the pins through where the rubber stops hit on the core...

      The wheel and dash bags are said to definitely be 3.3 ohms. That's what I remember posts saying when I bought them long ago. My light stays off. I'd think if the seats are wired to the same airbag...

      Thanks for the info. I'll have to check a couple of old OBD1 blocks I have and take a housing to be safe. Unless they were replaced before, they should most likely have the 3 piece version, no? The...

      I used a 3.3 ohm 1/2 watt resistor in my steering wheel connector. I don't know if the seats are the same. People use 4 or 4.7 ohm cause they're easier to find at places like Radioshack, but you can...

      Don't know if you'll find anything searching, but I'd imagine you could use a resistor in the seat connector just like deleting the steering wheel airbag. It might not be the same rated resistor...

      Rear Main Seal ABA

      Anyone know when they started using the 1 piece rear main seals on Mk3 models? GAP just says it was for later engines. I don't want to use one if I don't have to and don't want to pull the...

      The only thing that really makes doing an ignition switch daunting are the DIYs that tell you to pull the housing. Just disconnect the u-joint. The first one I ever did took me maybe 15 minutes. Even...

      Sounds like it could be a bad ignition switch if there's no blower motor or radio while it's running.

      I'd take $800 for the SRI alone. That photo is from 6 years ago when I parted the car it was on. Was saving it for another build, but if I ever build an ABA again, it's going to have a 16V head and...

      They look like they might have been off a GMC Jimmy, but you can find similar bars on Subarus and Jeeps too. Doesn't sound too functional with only screws. I've seen worse in a local yard where...

      Hood Pins

      Anyone here ever install hood pins or have photos of where they mounted them? I acquired a NB about 3 years ago and the hood has always had difficulty latching fully. Currently no longer latches...
