@  turbomar : (22 November 2014 - 06:33 PM) Thanks for the tip lads! Going to Princess tomorrow
@  marchanna : (22 November 2014 - 05:57 PM) Princess Auto is the best! I live less than a Km from there.
@  Bessy : (22 November 2014 - 05:53 PM) Turbomar, Princess Auto has the socket for about $3. I've done 20 or so pairs of reluctors and haven't broken a socket yet.
@  dmoonen : (22 November 2014 - 09:48 AM) Yes it is Turbomar.
@  turbomar : (22 November 2014 - 07:38 AM) Is the socket size for the drive axle bolt to hub on the 450, 12 point 21mm?
@  dmoonen : (21 November 2014 - 03:41 PM) I think glow plug gets triggered by the coolant sensor
@  FlossyTheSmart : (21 November 2014 - 12:11 PM) I couldn't tell you for sure.
@  kdubya : (21 November 2014 - 11:39 AM) i played around a bunch, entered everything i could. i didn't see it anywhere. Is it something we know the Star can do?
@  FlossyTheSmart : (21 November 2014 - 09:52 AM) There are a whole lot of read outs in there, so you may have to dig around a bit, but that's where I would think they'd be.
@  kdubya : (21 November 2014 - 09:45 AM) k ill check. i want to make sure they are working. just a read out of temp
@  FlossyTheSmart : (21 November 2014 - 09:21 AM) probably under the "Engine" section
@  FlossyTheSmart : (21 November 2014 - 09:20 AM) Read out is likely under Systems>N3/9 (EDG control unit) > Actual Value Indicator, somewhere.
@  FlossyTheSmart : (21 November 2014 - 09:18 AM) As in, configurable, or just a read out?
@  kdubya : (21 November 2014 - 08:58 AM) Anyone know where to find cylinder temp (glow plug function) on the Star??
@  FlossyTheSmart : (19 November 2014 - 11:38 AM) classic
@  Mike T : (19 November 2014 - 11:38 AM) Hodor
@  evotell : (19 November 2014 - 11:35 AM) Saying your own name, I don't get it?
@  dmoonen : (19 November 2014 - 10:52 AM) Saying your own name evotell :P
@  evotell : (19 November 2014 - 10:49 AM) evotell
@  KurtMan : (18 November 2014 - 06:29 PM) Well, we repaired the wires and its driving fine now... I guess I'll have to wait for another slushy day to be sure. Thanks for all the help guys!
@  Mike T : (18 November 2014 - 05:24 PM) This happened to our dearly departed green car too and the solution was that simple.
@  SkydiverChris : (18 November 2014 - 03:32 PM) Glad to hear that you may have found the cause Kurt! Keep us posted! It's almost never that simple.
@  Francesco : (18 November 2014 - 12:00 PM) cost me close to $300 to tow from the Canadian border post at Hemingford to my driveway (80 km), and my car was up on blocks for two weeks while I tracked down and resolved the issues.
@  Francesco : (18 November 2014 - 11:58 AM) jurist? During
@  Francesco : (18 November 2014 - 11:58 AM) Yep, mine started acting up jurist a January thaw on a long steady drive through the country, then the car refused to move on a slushy day on a long steady drive on the same roads a week later. The slushy brine is both conductive and tenacious.
@  FlossyTheSmart : (18 November 2014 - 11:40 AM) That's probably it.
@  KurtMan : (18 November 2014 - 11:21 AM) So my friend with soldering skills is going to help me after work... I'm confident this will solve the problem. First slushy day we have so it must have splashed up there and shorted out.
@  Francesco : (18 November 2014 - 10:25 AM) knock on wood, no recurrence after two winters and three summers.
@  Francesco : (18 November 2014 - 10:25 AM) then wraped all in Tesa cloth harness tape ($20 a roll at MB, about the same off ebay)
@  Francesco : (18 November 2014 - 10:24 AM) Yeah, mine was the same. I repaired the wires and coated the whole thing in Liquid Electrical Tape ($9 at CT)
@  stickman007 : (18 November 2014 - 10:20 AM) There's probably corrosion inside the sheath due to moisture getting in
@  FlossyTheSmart : (18 November 2014 - 07:29 AM) with the wires chafed, they're probably only intermittantly making good contact. Wrapping in electrical tape probably won't be able to keep the connection good.
@  KurtMan : (18 November 2014 - 07:26 AM) What if I wrap the chafed wires in electrical tape and try driving around?
@  FlossyTheSmart : (18 November 2014 - 07:21 AM) hopefully it's as simple as that!
@  KurtMan : (18 November 2014 - 07:11 AM) I immediately found 2 chafed wires at the connection to the clutch actuator!
@  dmoonen : (18 November 2014 - 05:49 AM) Majority of the problems are in the engine harness area right at the IC scoop. Removing the IC would give you more wiggle room and less curse words
@  dmoonen : (18 November 2014 - 05:47 AM) SAM to rear ecu travels under the carpet and right into the firewall behind the seats.
@  dmoonen : (18 November 2014 - 05:46 AM) Harness to two sections: 1:Rear ECU TO engine sensors and components. 2: Sam:Rear ECU.
@  dmoonen : (18 November 2014 - 05:44 AM) No you dont need to kurt, mainly around the intercooler scoop area and back youll be
@  KurtMan : (18 November 2014 - 04:27 AM) Do I have to remove any of the under panels to get to the harness?
@  KurtMan : (17 November 2014 - 04:33 PM) Well maybe if I need a star machine I'll send you a message Max!
@  FlossyTheSmart : (17 November 2014 - 04:20 PM) I think just me, Chris, and Troy have star machines in the Ottawa area.
@  KurtMan : (17 November 2014 - 04:03 PM) Any help would be appreciated!
@  SkydiverChris : (17 November 2014 - 03:58 PM) NOt sure if anyone out your way has a Star, but there are a couple people around Ottawa that do. If you're stuck, they may be able to help
@  KurtMan : (17 November 2014 - 03:56 PM) Thanks I appreciate it!
@  SkydiverChris : (17 November 2014 - 03:55 PM) Sorry man, if you're still stuck on the weekend, I might be convinced to make a trip out that way (unless someone else gets there before I do), but there's a tonne of stuff to try, and the Star may or may not give you something to go on.
@  KurtMan : (17 November 2014 - 03:49 PM) Ya I feel ya... I guess I'll check the fork and harness tomorrow and go from there. Wish me luck!
@  SkydiverChris : (17 November 2014 - 03:46 PM) Ewww...that's one hell of a trip. haha
@  KurtMan : (17 November 2014 - 03:42 PM) Innes/Tenth line exactly
@  SkydiverChris : (17 November 2014 - 03:42 PM) If it was summer, I skydive in Gatineau and am out that way almost every weekend. Unfortunately, we don't jump in winter much.

Hello all, I have the details for the Show & Shine in Welland. This looks to be an awesome show, quite possibly one of the biggest in the area. I spoke to the organizers and we are very welcome. There is no need to preregister, we will pay at the gate. Date: Sunday, September 25, 2005 Time: 8am to 4pm (actual show is more like 11am to 4pm, but we don't want to be at the back) Place: Niagara Regional Exhibition Address: 1100 Niagara Street, Welland, Ontario, L3C 1M6 Entrance fee: $15 per Smart car (2 people) per day Sponsor: Street Machines Unlimited Proceeds to Tender Wishes Info: 905-734-3696, Wayne Lundy The event is actually 2 days long with a pig roast and dance on Saturday night, and the show & shine on Sunday. The last day for pre-registration was today, $25 for both days, and included entrance in some door prizes and a gift bag. The Sunday event is the big one with over 600 cars expected to attend. Sunday?s events include: -Judged Show & Shine -Swap Meet -Muffler Rap Contest -Engine Blow Up (??? not sure what they plan for this??) -Car Model Display -Memorabilia Showcase -Hooters Girls (selling 50/50 tickets, I think) -Dream Car Garage will be filming the show for their program, which appears on Speed Channel :clapping: In order to park together, we need to arrive together. Please check back for details on this early next week. An open hose will be available for car washing, so bring your bucket and wash mitt. We should park in our spots together and then take turns if anyone wants to wash their car and get it ready. The rest of us will save the spot. Please sign up so we can get an idea of how many are coming. We might be able to save spots for out of towners if we know you are coming. Thanks. 1. PhatRed, SlimRed 2. 3. 4. 5.

Hey mixed, sucks that you can't go. Do you know of a Tims that is close to the event that the rest of us could meet at? There is water available on site to wash cars with, so we can wash our cars when we get there. What are the rest of us going to do if it rains? Any votes? 1.

That's cool, easy to get to as well. If you are coming down the 406 from the QEW, just hang a right (west) at Hwy 20 and head into Fonthill. The Tims is on the south (left) side of the road. Is 8am too early to meet? Maybe 9?

Latest report indicates that the weather might be good during the actual show hours. I will try to be at that Tim Hortons at 9 am. Merrittville Rd and HWY 20 right?

Hey Guys, That's correct for the Tims. There's an Esso gas station and the Shnitzel Tavern (spelling??) on that corner as well. Also pre-registration is not needed. $15 at the gate. The weather forcast is sounding worse, but we are going to see what it's actually like in the morning. Hopefully it will hold off until later in the day. We don't seem to be getting the good weather for our events like we have all summer. At least if we get rained out this weekend, hopefully it will be good next weekend for the wine tour. Hope to see you there. If we're not at the Tims by 9:15, go ahead without us.

Too bad you guys didn't go. It was a great show. The rain stopped one minute after I arrived and the weather was perfect. Over 400 cars were there. I had the only smart car and it received the usual attention, and then some. I've always said that the smart is a "chick magnet". Let me show you what I mean.
