Ditchboy is trying to change out his ignition on the 93 SSEi ..... he found the two white wires (no orange sleeve) and one was cut. I told him that it was likely cut on purpose to bypass VATS since I know that the previous owner said he had bypassed VATS
So....is it safe to tell him to replace the ignition without hooking up the white wires on the
new ignition (assuming they are there....and they should be encased in an orange sleeve.)
I did some searching and read up on this thread http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...place+ignition
and found that is may be a dirty key, a resistor that doesn't match the key within the same ohms... or the ignition. I don't remember what the security light did when he turned the key and nothing happened. However his problem is intermittant. When it won't start, he waits about 5 mins and then it does. He did get a new resistor put in at a garage....he thinks they boned him for $75 because the car has started acting up again.
Other problems he has... he can't lock the doors using the power switch because the security system will go off when you unlock the doors and open the doors. Have to disconnect the battery to stop it from occuring. And he had a fuel-delivery-like issue too but he changed his fuel pump and I don't know if that fixed it or not.
I told him to search this forum when he first had a problem.... but NOoooooo....he'* got to do it his way and rip out the ignition. He doesn't know what he'* doing either... and I'm the one who has to go pick him butt up from work two days in a row. Needless to say...I guess I should learn to not be available to him.
He needs to make his own mistakes, which is why I haven't asked for help for him (in a while). But now he'* calling asking me to "ask the club for me because I'm at work".
