    Here's a video in top post of what mine's been doing. It's an 05 - http://www.grandprixforums.net/threa...t-go-bad-(vid)

    I took mine in to have it checked with a Snap-On ABS reader thing ($30). I found that it's not a bad BCM, but a bad ABS module. Rebuild services are on ebay. I can also confirm that my car will still act like TCS is on, even with the DIC showing everything not working.

    Sorry all been a little bz

    GTPKermit PM me. I was getting ready to send my ECBM in for repairs but if you have one let's arrange payment and stuff.



    Hello My Friends. Been a bit bz. Started a new job last week. Upgraded from a School Bus Driver/Tech to a Shop Manager of a Charter Bus Company. Huge boost in pay and double the hours lol.
    Ordered a bunch of things for the GTP. Headers, plugs, Pulley, stereo and speakers all around.

    Test drove a 2000 GTP for the wife. Bad CV joint, steering wheel crooked, Headlights held on with Plumbers tape, slight slight catalytic convertor smell and it didn't pull like mine does so assuming Cat was going bad. Anyways Dealership wanted 2299 for it. I offered 1800 cash they hem hawed around to the point i said kiss my ass and walked away.

    Before leaving town, found a 1998 GT with heated leather seats (Dr suggest would be great for my wife's back). As a bonus it had a HUD. I understand these things are common in a GTP but much less so in a GT. Anyways, looked great, ran great..... private party wanted $2300. I offered $2000 and she accepted. Her dad bought it brand new off the line in 1998 and she got it 4 yrs ago.



    No ABS light....no TCS light....no engine light. Runs very smooth, shifts like butter.


    I'll do a big pic update soon. Thanks for visiting

    Hello My Friends.....

    So, I took out my ABS Module in preparation of sending it in to be repaired. On my way to work, I was tapping my finger on the cruise "set" and hit it too far and the darn thing is working now. Put the module back in and it doesn't. So left the module out lol.

    Visited the wife at work:




    Upgraded my headlights. I did my research so I knew the pros and cons. But I installed Spec D Headlights (have used Spec D before in my Honda and was happy.

    No bouncing, no issues installing and the low beams are FANTASTIC!!!! I'll adjust the High Beams this weekend so I'm not scanning the tops of trees.....
    Anyways disconnected my car's DRLs as the lights were having issues. But they came with DRL LEDS so it's good. Anywho without further ado....



    With Parking Lights on:



    With JUST DRLs active:




    This weekend installing my new stereo and hooking up my Subwoofer.

    Hiya Hiya,

    Installed a new stereo today using PAC SWI-RC to retain Stereo controls. Took me awhile to figure out I had to change a setting in the stereo to get the PAC system to work lol. But works great. Didn't hook up my box yet or install my new speakers as I'm fighting being sick (thanks my daughter).

    Gonna hold off on installing my headers and 3.4" pulley until I get my New ECU in.

    Went to change out my Fuel Tank O ring and lock ring and Autoidiot gave me the wrong one.

    So borrowing a friends Turbo PT Cruiser tomorrow for work and get the right O ring.

    Ordered my Overkill ECU. Soon as it comes in, it's upgrade time!!!

    Got into it with an RX8 off the line. Was still wet/rainy and spun a tire (or 2 :P) all the way up to 45. We shut down at 60 and I had a couple cars on him. Not sure if auto/stick or anything. Just know it was a blue 2nd gen Rx8. Prolly an auto as the stick with a decent driver should give a hell of a run.

    Will be installing my speakers this weekend.
