  1. Update: Paddles now working fine!
  2. I'm part way thru adding flappy paddle shifters to my 2003 GTb wagon. Paddles are in, figured the wiring out, just need to make it permanent, will do that tomorrow, but had to remove the cruise control lever to allow the wheel to turn without catching the paddles. So, I'm thinking I might replace the wheel with one from newer model, with cruise control buttons.Will have to replace roll connector too I guess, but I know where I can get one of those. Anyone got a wheel, or just the buttons from one?
  3. Sorry, yes it does idle ok after a run. Is there any other type than full open throttle?
  4. Thanks guys, I'll have a look into this, are they easy enuff to change? Could I do it myself? I guess you can buy one right...
  5. Man, this car is getting annoying. What does it mean when CEL & Traction lights are on solid, and cruise control flashes? I have checked the codes and I get P0037 as a result. It's still hunting a bit at lights, and almost stalls when stopping at times, but seems to be fine at power. *shrugs* don't want to spend more money on this thing, might be time to get rid of it maybe.
  6. Hi, thanks Andy_Mac, logged again on way home tonight. Unable to log MAF, when selected, it freezes BTSSM up, maybe the sensor is playing up? Link below to log + LV https://1drv.ms/f/s!AjfixQ0aH9oCgbZMUCPGzCmV1SqOdw Cheers, Aaron
  7. Hi, I was wondering if someone could look at the log from BTSSM for me. Legacy has been like stumbling or hunting at lights while waiting, revs drop etc. The AFR and FC needles swing wildly from extreme to extreme. Just wondering what it might be and what I'm up for this time. Link to log https://1drv.ms/u/s!AjfixQ0aH9oCgbZHtwdpQKAmutb3cA Cheers, Aaron
  8. Brendon Motors on Vivian St have done all my work... 2003 GTb bearings, replaced engine, cambelt, bushings, plugs, oils, fuel system (with Macbuilt) Been very happy with them.
  9. Thanks all, love the support. Yep, I'm running Timurs kernel on Remix 7.1.2 and charging varies but is 695mA right now. Car sits all day at work and overnight with a 20 min drive to and from work, so not long to charge. The idea is to trickle charge using wireless pad when sitting not on. I've tried Tasker to shut things down on AC power off but Tasker seems to "get lost" at times. Generally I'm very happy with the setup, running Android Auto via Headunit Reloaded over USB or wifi direct works great. It just goes flat too fast.
  10. hi all, as part of my in-dash tablet install, I'm wondering if there is any power source that is only alive when the car is turned off. So, that when I turn the car off and leave it, this source becomes alive at that point, and then stops when car is turned back on. I'm having problems keeping the N7 powered up for longer than a few days, and have "stuck" a wireless charger to the back of the tablet, that I want to only charge when the car is off. I had wondered if there was anything that I can use from the immobiliser side of things? Either that or a relay switch that connects power on key off. Anyone got any clues here? Cheers, Aaron
  11. Update: Got car back yesterday, new fuel pump, fuel filter cleaned, entire full system cleaned out. Filter was just filthy and appears to have clogged, and the full system was also very dirty. Haven't taken it for a rip yet, but seems to have a new lease on life even in commute home, Ngauranga was fun again! Partly age (2003), NZ fuels, and me driving with fuel light on a lot... Lesson learned! Heated seats back... mmmm
  12. Well... no. I don't have the car back yet, nearly 2 weeks now. I think they have determined it's not the turbo that needs replacing, and ran it through boost and smoke tests, and have found a fuel pump problem. They've replaced the fuel pump but are still having issues, I'm not sure what exactly what the issues are. It's at Macbilt I think. I'll keep you posted...
  13. question: could fuel pump pressure or blocked filters be the cause of all this? turbo arrived at mechanics, however he is going to check the fuel pump pressure, filter and air flow sensor first...
  14. Ok thanks guys... wondering what to do... replace turbo or write the car off and chalk it down to experience and forget turbos... likely about $700 for 2nd hand turbo plus a few hours. Rest of car is great, new engine has done about 90thou km, did cambelt and pump 10thou ago... CV boots done, suspension bushes done, bearing done, 4 new tyres... fix and keep, or dump... Dunno
