  1. Thanks , everything always helps on these cars , smile, appreciate it.
  2. Thanks appreciate that - did you have to disconnect the power booster and and like e up the steering wheel ? A83
  3. Getting a new rag joint to ensure safety of the steering mechanism on my 83 from Nostalgic motors - any idea if this will be a costly installation for a mechanic and will they even perform the work? I have the installation article from rhe recent Avanti mag and it looks a little complicated. Thanks for any help. Kevin
  4. Fyi my 83 came with a 350 Camaro engine - fuel injected - does that make a difference in the ignition module?
  5. Thanks will have that checked I don't think the dash lights came on but it happened in traffic so not totally sure
  6. Thank you all for your replies I am taking notes and hope to resolve this after the New Year and will let you know..... stay well and safe Kevin A83
  7. No green knob and thank you all for your replies. Still investigating and can't get it to replicate yet. Will keep you posted. Stay safe.
  8. I took my83 for a ride and was playing a CD in the radio and I hear something like a snap noise and the radio spit out the CD. Then a little while later the same thing happened and the car actually shut off. I put the car in park and it started right up. Does this sound like a short somewhere? The battery is about 2 1/2 years old and the cranking amps are 300 instead of the full 330. Of that makes a difference. Also recently the fog lights stopped working. Appreciate any advice. Hope everyone is safe and well out there. Regards, Kevin
  9. I do have the hatch access in the back thank you. I will experiment with it in case the switch fails. Regarding the trunk lid. I am wondering for those with this problem, if neodymium magnets might help. I have not looked at the trunk for an appropriate location, but if you install one or two of appropriate strength on the body and a thin piece of metal in the lid, it might hold the trunk down. These magnets come in various strengths and can be very strong and you must be careful working with them. I recently had my interior vent covers covered and did not want to put screw holes through the vinyl and wanted them easily removable so I screwed two magnets on each side - each 1 1/2 inch long by 1/2 inch by 3/8 inches deep. I then used Gorilla super glue to attach two very thin sheets of metal on the inside part of the vent cover which happened to be overlapped with the vinyl. The vinyl was glued strongly enough that when the metal was glued to it , it did not separate when pulling the vent from the magnets. The vents held in place from the front mounted magnets alone with no need for any additional support on the top bottom or rear. Plus they come on and off easily. And they held exactly in place when I test drove it even at 55 mph. No vibration or rattle. Regards A83
  10. 1. My 83 has an electronic trunk opener but I see no way to open the trunk if this fails . Is there a way? 2. Also my rear view mirror is placed on the windshield in the place normal for most cars. Is this the original location for the 83 or more down near the dash like early modem Avanti. Thank you. A83
