So I guess my Car should be listed as L36 in my signature?

Also, what are the best books by Chilton/Hayes to own? I picked up one to look at. It is a 1985-2002 Bonneville/La Sabre and others by Chilton.

I am going to need to change the IMG this summer and was wondering which would have the best instructions. I read those in the techinf section, but I need to just a little bit more information.

Later guys...it'* Lunesta time...

Chiltons will be good. Helm is the company that produces the actual FSM'* for the dealers.

On that LED..you can simply google the voltage expected at the injectors, add the resistor for that voltage.

Yup - I've used this method a few times, too. It works well.

I got a subscription to AllData.com. The amount of data they offer on each car is amazing.
http://www.alldata.com/

Its more than buying some books but offers a HUGE amount of info. Also only lasts a year but to me its worth it big time.

Where on the injector harness should I stick the bulb? Am I disconnecting a harness connector from a single injector and sticking the bulb leads into the two female ports?

Thanks

So I disconnected an injector connector and inserted the bulb. The car started right up and the bulb was pulsing. (Darn thing won't start when I want it too, but starts when I least expected it.) I plugged the injector connector back on quickly. I checked the rest of the injectors while it was running. The car idled rough when I pulled each one and smoothed out when reconnected, so those are all working.

I'll try it in the morning when I'm not expecting it to start again to check for an injector pulse.

I took tomorrow & Friday off work to go to the yards. It'* comp time, and not vacation time. I work too much.

Later guys...

If it doesn't start and doesn't have injector pulse then try disconnecting the throttle position sensor & recheck.
