  1. Believe it or not, I actually am very familiar with the girl that you see in the news right now who hooked up with Tiger - Jaimee Grubbs. She transferred to my HS my junior year. Many stories about all that. Small world for sheez. I called my old roommates and laughed about it as soon as I saw her name...
  2. Thanks Bruce, now it will be easy for someone to see this thread if they search for it. Best forum around, hands down! Think I might have to load a pic of the LAC up here shortly...
  3. IPC B2711 PASSKey Open/Shorted Pellet After Good Key : SOLVED Kevin, thank you for the help. Thanks Logan too. I had more than one resistor just to make sure I got as close to 1,130 ohms as I could. With three resistors I got 1,133 ohms. I am super anal I wanted it to be spot on haha. At first I was hesitant to cut any wiring because I have never done anything with wires before, let alone soldering. I think I measured ohms back in junior high for some science class - so it is safe to say I just learned a whole lot in about two days time. Here is what the semi-finished product looked like, soldering and all. Excuse the iPhone pics for lack of clarity, but it was the easiest way to show everyone. With buying all supplies, this cost me about $30 compared to $500. Bought resistors, soldering iron, Ohmmeter, solder core rosin, and shrink tubing. Had electrical tape, needle-nose pliers, and a wire cutter. I recommend doing this for anyone that had the same problem as I did. Make you sure measure the pellet in your key correctly, or you can go to the dealer just as I did and they will tell you the VATS number of your specific vehicle. You can look at it on vats.likeabigdog.com. I know this dude on YouTube is pretty DUB T, but he made me laugh and gave me another angle of learning as opposed to photos and text. [Note: some off color language] Hopefully this resolves some issues out there for others after me. Next on the list is fixing my stupid fob or upgrading the alarm. I am sure something will pop up on my Caddy, it sure keeps me busy. However, I love her to death. This forum has saved me from punching out a wall or my windows, that's for sure!!! G-money out
  4. How is everyone doing today? I have not been on very much after passing smog and changing my reservoir tank that was cracked @ the bottom hose. Thanks to everyone that spoke up and helped me out, these things were easily achieved. Been having problems with my key fob, and now my DIC threw me a code of IPC B2711 PASSKey Open/Shorted Pellet After Good Key. Just happened a couple of days ago and pretty sure my ignition lock wires or contacts have fatigued. The resistor pellet within the key is still good, and I visited the nearest dealer and my VATS system is a #5--which should be 1,130 ohms. I really can't picture myself shelling out $400 bones to replace this, and I never would have thought I would have run into such a problem!? Anyway, I think I am going to do the bypass with resistors. Already made the trip to RadioShack. Such great information found on this site...my gratitude goes out to those who have helped me figure things out for myself, since I have never had a clue on how to work on cars to now doing all this myself! Anyway, back to the topic at hand...going to emulate vats.likeabigdog.com and others that have posted on here to alleviate this annoying problem. Bought 1/2 watt resistors : 1k - ohm, 100 - ohm, and 33 ohm. to try and replicate my VATS resistance value. This look right to you>? Also if anyone else has any pertinent info it would help me out alot!! Thank you, Adam
  5. First of all, I would like to take the time to thank everyone who has helped with their input. I really appreciate it. I have never considered myself good with engines, but through guidance, I can troubleshoot things and do the easier fixes. BodybyFisher: Codes are not current, they must have been from the 3 previous owners before me. The only current codes I have are the seat codes, which are the least of my worries at this point. Two new codes popped up which are TCS C1223 and C1224 which are Left and Right Rear Wheel Speed Sensor Input Signal is 0 after smog? Should I clear codes and see if they pop up again? rek: Definitely doing this before I retest! adallak & Bschlossman : Trying to find air purge line. Searched archives here. Is this the right picture KHE : Is the FPR easy to replace? Sorry for all the questions because I am a NOOB haha!
  6. Thanks, think that is the first step in ruling out the worst possible. I didn't fail by much at all, it was like 3 points off in the 15mph range, and everything else passed no problem. Probably should replace radiator as well. How long can I drive like this?! Adam
  7. This site is awesome, and for not having this car for more than two weeks, I have learned a lot about these cars. I am not experienced at all, but at least the info acquired here points me in the right directions. I recently purchased a 97 De Ville with 71,000 miles from a private seller, and everything seemed awesome for the first couple of days - dream come true. Then, I started to notice a leak from the front of the car which seems to be the radiator. Dexcool on the ground, and coolant level low sign coming up. Never seemed to overheat at all really, I always kept an eye on the coolant temp. Stayed between 196 - 212 range, and it is hot here. Took it to go get smogged, and it didn't pass. He said there were too many hydrocarbons so he failed it. When he put a load on it on the dyno, he said it started to overheat and dumped coolant on the ground too! I pulled the codes which were: PCM P0300 (misfire) P1520 P1527 MSM B2110 B2119 B0856 - (all seats problems which need to be fixed) Don't know if they have ever been cleared before. I don't have a lot of money to be timeserting, or pulling heads and fixing them. What can I do? Feel like I am up a creek with no paddle!!!
