@  Th3Guardian : (19 December 2014 - 08:05 PM) Random question, anyone in the Ottawa area have a spare set of headlight bulb covers for a 451? (rubber things that go over bulbs). I want to install my HID bulbs

@  TheBestJohn : (15 December 2014 - 04:01 PM) gonna pull it out and re lube
@  kdubya : (15 December 2014 - 02:47 PM) Figures right? I usually go a week between issues.
@  TheBestJohn : (15 December 2014 - 12:49 PM) My alternator was pooched. I bought a used one from Troy and it's working flawlessly now. week before last I put it in... today. Clutch actuator goes on mt
@  TheBestJohn : (15 December 2014 - 12:48 PM) So get this
@  Th3Guardian : (13 December 2014 - 08:29 PM) That's good to hear, its half off right now at $282.09 Canadian so I'm thinking of just ordering it.
@  Mike T : (13 December 2014 - 08:17 PM) It's the only decent cruise that was available for the 451 in the first years.
@  Th3Guardian : (13 December 2014 - 07:32 PM) does anyone have experience with this cruise control? http://www.smartiepa...e=index&cPath=1
@  FlossyTheSmart : (10 December 2014 - 11:30 AM) If anyone ever happens across a dead attachment (The file doesn't exist when you go to download it), let me know the link to the file. Generally you'll encounter dead attachments in posts older than 2007. The dead links are raising some (false) red flags for me on some things, and it's kind of annoying, so I've been making sure to edit the links away as I find them. The files are typically gone for good.

It stays on until you lock the car...any suggestions how to get it to turn off? This started last week and I have tried everything I can think of but that isn't saying much... :biglaugh:

Mine always stays on until I lock the car, or leave it for a while (a minute or something like that).Even if you leave a door open, it actually goes off after some period of time (5 minutes?)Later! Dang

I got a more obvious question. How do you get it to come on without opening the door? I tried the centre button below the radio but nothing.

Im pretty sure mine stays on for a few after closing the door...and fades when you lock it. it comes on when you double lock and turn on the follow home feature.

I have also waited because it used to turn off after a while without locking the doors, now, not so much, have to lock it to shut it off. :dunno:

B service soon, will inquire if it is still happeneing.
