    New 1.5 DIN head unit option

    I got it installed last week. Still haven't figured out how to get the door speakers to work, anyone have any suggestions? Also have the PAC-SWI steering wheel interface but have no idea how it's supposed to connect to this thing.

    Hey Guys

    Hey what’s up guys. I’m new to forums for cars; but I’ve been wanting to talk to other W body owners so I can figure out the issues with my cars. I previously owned a 1990 GP SE coupe with a decently rare option set, but I had to sell. I now just purchased a 94 GTP and I’m unfamiliar with the motor and some of its issues. ( Fans won’t kick on/ car won’t restart once heated up/ dies in reverse sometimes when power steering strains/low rpm flutter) I hope you all like the car anyway!

    1988 Buick Regal Review

    It's long and I haven't watched it all the way to the end yet. Probably nothing any W-body old-timer didn't already know, but still pretty cool to see a W-body review in 2021.

    New 1.5 DIN head unit option

    Found this over on the Corvette Forum - some C5 folks are excited about having found a head unit that's single-DIN with a centrally-mounting 8.8" touchscreen display that can fit entirely behind a 1.5 DIN-height bezel. I've already converted my C5 to double-DIN, but I saw potential for the GP. JOYING JY-HOS01N4G-2 It's an octa-core with 4GB RAM/64GB ROM and capacitive touchscreen running Android 10 with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay support, DSP w/EQ, Bluetooth 5.1, GPS, SWRC, optical outputs, 5GHz Wifi, 4G LTE, and options for DVR, TPMS and backup camera. Our 1G W's have an extremely shallow mounting depth that has made upgrades challenging to say the least. However with finally jettisoning the antiquated disc format from new head units, shallower mounting depths are now possible. I've never seen a factory unit with CD, but I'm wondering how it fit. C5s have more mounting depth than we do, but I'm still thinking this is one of the strongest possibilities yet. Its mounting depth to the back of the display is a mere 129mm, or 5". I have to take some measurements tonight but I think this might fit - and be the manifestation of a product I've been looking for for more than a decade!

    New 1.5 DIN head unit option

    According to the above diagram, the pink wire in the factory harness to the "amplifier" provides the power. I am unsure which year service manual the diagram is from, however. (Your vehicle may not have the "amplifier switch" pictured in the diagram with the white wire in the harness.) The factory pink wire is the "remote turn on" wire (or commonly referred to as the "power antenna" wire), so the corresponding wire in the aftermarket harness should be the blue wire (or perhaps a blue wire with white tracer). Just out of curiosity, are you using the stock speakers, or do you have aftermarket replacements?

    Changed my rear pads today ..

    Rotated the tires the other day and while I had it up in the air did a brake inspection and seen the drivers rear was getting really close, so i went to RA and bought the cheapest ceramic pads they had. changed them out today, Just in time .

    Changed my rear pads today ..

    My experience with ceramic pads was on the front of a K1500 pickup; and it was...20-ish years ago. I suppose (and hope) that ceramic pads are better now. I HATED those pads. Poor stopping, needed extra pedal effort--but they wore forever. Which is kinda too bad. I put up with those pads way longer than I should have. The last few sets of pads I've bought have been Performance Friction brand, "carbon metallic" composition. Made in USA, in one of the Carolinas.

    3100 compatability question

    Does your 95 Grand Prix have any problems? Meaning, why don't you just give her the Grand Prix instead of doing the engine swap? I'm just saying that because I like that generation of Grand Prix better than the Malibus. Anyway, if you're searching the internet for info, the Malibu has a LG8 code engine and the Grand Prix is a L82. 60degreev6.com has some good info on these swaps, you'll have to look around a little. Since the EGR stuff is different, you might want to keep the intake manifolds from the Malibu engine, but that introduces other issues. What you're wanting to do has been done before, although often the other way around (newer engine in older car) so hopefully you can find the info you need. Do you need to pass emissions where you live? That might impact your decision on the EGR issue. The 95 grand prix is OBD 1.5 and the Malibu is OBD 2.0.
