  1. Thanks, but the issue is described in the first paragraph. The physical switches are not working and that's what needs fixed.
  2. Hey guys. Two out of the three map light switches in the overhead console on my 2001 STS do not function. The switch buttons do not push the button cover downward as they should, so the button covers appear flush and do nothing. Anybody have any luck installing new switches or have any ideas on a relatively inexpensive fix for this? Thank you in advance. Pose
  3. Hi everybody. I recently had the engine replaced in my 2001 Seville STS. There were no codes prior to the swap. now there are a few codes and the traction control light is on. Here are the codes (all ABS): 1274, 1282, 1284, 1287, and 1288. Most of these have to do with the throttle and I had hoped the replacement cruise control servo would fix these. (I replaced it since the connector to the throttle body had broken. Any ideas, insight, or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  4. Good morning. I currently only have 1 PK3 key for my DTS. I would like to get 1 or 2 new keys for them, but wasn't sure if I can program myself.I've seen the directions about leaving it in 10 minutes 3 times, and such. Is there a DIY method that works on these, or is this a dealer only task?Thanks,Pose
  5. Thanks. So far the memory in the unit is working fine, it just comes on when it feels like it. No rhyme or rhythm.
  6. Okay, Thanks. I knew the one on my old Eldo was, but never worked on the Nav/Radio before and didn't want to cause a bigger problem for me.
  7. I asked this earlier, but didn't get a response. If I unplug my nav/radio to clean the connections and plug it back in, will I need to have theftlock reset?
  8. I really would rather not put out that kind of money. I have a nice pioneer unit with Bluetooth that I can install with a chime retainer if that's the case.
  9. I thought it might be since all the aftermarket stereo kits mention the chimes. Also, it seems it's definitely temperature related. About halfway through my drive home, the chime sounded and the radio is back on. I think I'll get some NO-OX-ID to put on the connectors. As far as disconnecting and reconnecting the head unit I shouldn't have to get it programmed since it's still the same car, correct?
  10. No power at all (buttons aren't even lit). However, this weekend I did note a couple things that may be related. When the key goes in the ignition and doesn't chime with the door open, the stereo will not power up, there are no lights on the rear collision "gauge" in the headliner, and the seat memory/exit buttons do not beep. I'm thinking about cleaning the connectors to the indash unit, and adding conductive grease. We'll see if that helps.
