How many whole Fieros do you own? Not counting parts enough to build one.

My hosting service has changed the version of PHP that is running the website. I've modified the code to fix this issue. Hopefully this will resolve the issue.

Now that I have used this, why is all that "garbage" showing up in this website? Who cares (besides admins) about all that garbage? It makes reading what people write cumbersome at best.

Dave: Who is responsible for updating the event schedule on the website? I am sure we have activities planned for July, but you cannot tell from the website. Thanks Bill

I recently joined the club and have a 1988 Fiero GT with T-Tops (rare, I think). In any case, it has been sitting for a few years due to work obligations. I need to find a mechanic (used to do it

I guess the Ebay link is too long to fit in the Shout Box. Go to Ebay and search for 'Fiero'. The '88 Service Manual will show up as you scroll down. Price $26.xx

New headlight switch

Yesterday I wired in a new headlight switch. I'm in the military and every time we go through a gate we are supposed to dim our light for the guards. I was tired of having to turn off the headlights to turn on the parking lights. I got a nice simple switch out of a Saab that I liked and wired it up so now I can go from headlights to parking lights without turning everything off. Works great and doesn't even look that bad.

While I was working on the car I also put in a new turn signal canceling spring. It was getting really irritating having to turn that thing off manually. You never realize how nice that feature is until it's gone!

The last thing is I put in a drivers side visor since there wasn't one when I bought the car. Another item that is really nice to have.

Well I had to go back to the stock headlight switch. The one I wired in ended up not working out. It was out of a Saab and had a fairly wide body that I had to shave to get to fit. Well turns out that I guess I had to shave to much and it just wasn't strong enough anymore and it broke apart into pieces. I'm really disappointed that it didn't end up working out because it was very convenient. Maybe I'll try again if I can find the right switch to swap in.

Buddycraigg over on PFF has about an hour's worth of videos and/or writeup on the Gen 1 headlight circuits. This will probably give you all the information you need in order to build a circuit that will drop your headlights when the headlight lamps are off. (assuming this is what you want)

Actually I wanted the headlights to stay up when I went to just parking lights to avoid the wear on the motors. I figured out today that if you the very top of the headlight part of the switch that you can pull it out, turning off the headlights and keeping the parking lights on. It's not easy but can be done. I'm thinking of gluing on a very small piece of plastic to give me something to grip when I do this to make it easier.

Anyway, thanks for that link. There is some great info in that post and actually something I might be able to use. My passenger side headlight is only going down about 10% of the time. I have to assist it the rest of the time.

One of these days I'm going to add a switch to allow me to raise the headlights and keep them open without the headlights. Would be nice for washing the car/replacing the lamp/etc...

Glad you figured out a solution.

That is a great idea. I just might work on this today after I watch some football.

To celebrate the Seahawks victory, I went ahead and wired up a switch to do what Icelander stated above. It was fairly simple. I used a dual pole dual throw switch that I had. While one side of the switch is on supplying a simulated output from the isolation relay to headlight relays, the other side is cutting off the power to the isolation relay that tells the lights to close. I also wired in a LED that lights when the switch is on to give me a warning if for some reason I leave it on. I have a few pictures if anyone ever wants to see it.

You were more industrious than I was this weekend. I managed to get the storage shed cleaned out a bit so that I could collect all the LeMans parts together to sell her.

I'd love to see the pictures.
