@  FlossyTheSmart : (30 October 2014 - 05:39 PM) You should look at the "Service Options" link at the top of the page though, for independent smart mechanics
@  FlossyTheSmart : (30 October 2014 - 05:39 PM) Could be the cold start issue that SkyDiverChris has been fighting with too. Temperature's about right
@  Mike T : (30 October 2014 - 05:38 PM) I am thinking it's the fuel pump connection on the SAM but a dealer should look at that first due to the Service Bulletin on the topic.
@  SINIVU : (30 October 2014 - 05:32 PM) Probably Kitchener dealer!
@  Mike T : (30 October 2014 - 05:19 PM) Which dealer?

@  Coast Steve : (30 October 2014 - 10:21 AM) I miss seeing Bil Gladstone's crazy inventions! "Skunk Werx" I think it was.
@  marchanna : (23 October 2014 - 06:26 PM) You should report that, it makes you an accessory after the fact. Oh crap! Now we're all accessories! Speaking of which, I should buy some accessories for my car.

@  Coast Steve : (23 October 2014 - 04:41 PM) Speaking of typing mistakes, my buddy typed to someone "I'm just around the corner killing Tim".
@  Wild! : (23 October 2014 - 11:52 AM) Going to Glenn's he says he may have what I need.
@  Wild! : (23 October 2014 - 11:49 AM) This has to do with side lighting.
@  Wild! : (23 October 2014 - 11:49 AM) No that part was done 2 years ago.
@  FlossyTheSmart : (23 October 2014 - 08:48 AM) Top secret panel painting project?
@  Wild! : (22 October 2014 - 04:05 PM) Does some one have an 450 old door skin? one that is broken or garbage want to do some tests on one before I attempt my good ones.
@  Mike T : (22 October 2014 - 06:20 AM) John from Victoria, are you and Keith on the site these days? We have a dinner on November 6th coming up in Victoria! It would be cool to see you both there! See the thread in the Vancouver Island sub-forum.

@  marchanna : (22 October 2014 - 05:34 AM) Not really. I love that you caught that. I accidentally typed that, and then I was going to correct it, and then I thought, "hmm, I wonder if I leave it there, if anyone would catch that".

2006 Canadian CDICan someone please tell me what a single blinking (horizontal) bar on the digital dash means?It appears to be the center bar of the otherwise 3 blinking bars. Mine is only 1 center horizontal bar blinking.Also all of the Fuel Bubbles and Temperature Bubbles are blinking.What does this mean?Please note, there are now only 1,140 Kilometers on the car, so it is still new. This is the first time the car has done this. This morning I went to start it up and now this blinking on the dash.

OOOhhhhh The 3 bars of Death! Its kinda like the windows blue screen of death...Try turning the car off...key out for 20 seconds so (you will hear a relay "click") and try again....its some sort of gearbox misfire...resetting it (by turning the car right off ) should cure it...no real emergency...it happens...but only occasionallyS

:waving:

Have a look at THIS page that "Evilution" put up last night! I think it'll answer all your questions.

First line of attack = check fuses.

Cheers,

wow. Here is a thank you to everyone for the prompt help.I now recall that I removed the Airbag fuse so I could install a Paddle Shift Steering Wheel. I didnít want to accidentally blow an airbag in my face. According to the Evilution Link.. my CAN fault is 'probably due to a break in the system.. thus a fuse and disconnected Airbag plug.I will post an update if the problem is not related to the Airbag plug and fuse.

I can be found elsewhere on the site but it wasn't easily found and I thought it deserved its own page.

I'm back, a bit, maybe.
