  1. I have a 91 GTP 5 speed that has a couple of problems. First is that it dies if the rpms are somewhat high and I suddenly press the clutch. It basically goes from whatever rpms it was on to 0 rpms and dies. The second one is that once it dies after 2 or 3 times the engine is pretty slow cranking up and will eventually not start. Looks and sound like if the battery was dying. I have replaced the battery and starter, checked the alternator and it shows okay. What could be the problem? I'm hoping that someone here has had the same issues
  2. ok let me try again since the alternator and aux wires should be okay, what I need is to have the positive from battery go to the starter?
  3. exactly, no way! so it sounds like all I need is to run a positve wire from the battery (the main one) to the aux post and another one to the starter counting on the alternator and starter wiring to be as it "should" is this correct? I looked at the starter and there are two wires coming out, one that goes to the aux post and the other seems to be bolted to the chasis. So If I run the positive to the aux do I still need one to the starter?
  4. Everything should be as it came from factory, I didn't mess with any other wires other than the 2 from the battery. This is the kit I got from Taylor It only came with one positive cable so I guess I just replaced that one, Could any of you look at your battery and see where the main cable goes to? i've been trying to find pictures but no luck. Here is how my compartment looks right now, I had the main positive cable going straight into that AUX post
  5. Thanks for the info! I relocated my battery in order to have a CAI in my 3.4, this was done at least 2 years ago and I don't even remember when/how I did it but what I know is that I didn't had any major issues other than having to keep charging my batteries and eventually killing them after a while but I always thought that it was because I don't drive the car much as it needs a transmission, only on weekends and around the block to keep moving it. Like I mentioned on my first post the idea of the battery wiring being the reason for my dead batteries is because I just realized that my main and only Red/positive cable from my battery goes straight into the AUX post. So when I thought about it I realized (or at least I think) that it could be the problem since I don't see how the battery will be getting re-charged by the alternator when I don't see a connection. So to recap, My battery has the negative cable that goes to the ground in the trunk and the positve cable went straight into the AUX post. The car started and ran fine with no issues other than draining the battery after a few starts. I'm guessing that the other 2 connections that it needs are done correctly but i am just gussing here because it starts fine with a fully charged battery. What do you guys think?
  6. I have been looking for a diagram of how to do the wiring on the battery but no luck, I relocated my battery to the trunk long time ago but I'm pretty sure I did it wrong as it keeps killing the batteries. I need to know the correct way to do it. I have the ground cable going to the ground (of course) but where does the Positive goes to? straight into the alternator? I did this long time ago and I don't have the instructions anymore. I never even though about this being the reason of why my batteries kept dying until last night when it just came to my mind out of nowehere, one of those moments...

    I'm baaaaack!!

    Well, after parking my car for about two years I finally had the money, time and courage to take it in to a shop to get looked at. I took it in on Saturday but they won't look at it until Monday. Monday came and they called me saying that it could be the ignition coil pack, they installed it and wala! its running again. Total was $250! only if I knew it was something that simple....I now need to look into the transmission problem. I will post some pictures of how it sits right now later, the fron bumper is even worse now because it broke when putting the car on the tow dolly . How is everybody doing? any news? LOL
  8. Okay guys, finally have the time and somewhat of money to get into fixing my car again!!! YAY!!! little update: I went and try to start my car again, and it did, it was idleling up and down but kind of stable, no smoke or weird sounds, just the up and down revs, after 5 mins of running it died and then it wont start again. Don't forget that this is after at least a year of not messing with it at all! when it was running I was able to even drive it out of the garage, now after it died it only cranks but it doesn't sound like it even wants to start just plain (normal) crank, I did checked the spark plugs and they were burnt, I replaced them and nothing, I'm going to try to do the other tests recommended in here. Bare with me now! It was exciting to get in my loved car again!! now just need to make it work lol

    neon?

    x2. That is ghetto as all hell. But some cars its nearly impossible to hide them. Especially the old school tubes. Get a clean/good install and they would be great, the whole thing about neons is the attitud you take with them, if you are bragging that you have underbody neons then that would be rice/getto, but if you use them correctly it would be nice/different, I know I'm getting some neons for my car at some point in life and I don't care what people think
  10. I think it is a real SS though
  11. I have had mine running for a couple of weeks and had no problems receiving the bass to my subwoofers, I see the point that you guys are talking about and it makes sense, I should have done it like that, but everything is put back together and I'm to lazy to fix it specially if I don't see a problem maybe later! but so far so good
  12. Easy, I love my prix because: 1. it was the first car I bought with my money. 2. I raced all kinds of cars and won 90% of the races. 3. almost nobody knew/knows what kind of car it is. and a lot more reasons but those are the main ones
  13. Thanks! I finally got it running, here's what I did: I only had to tap 1 rear speaker (2 wires +-) to get the speaker wire to the input of that box, then from the output of the box I ran the rca to the amp, then I had to run a remote wire from some fuse to the box and that was all, I dint used the black wire neither; the scosche box has place for 4 speakers to use as input but only one was enough to get the sound/signal to my subwoofers.
  14. Any more information on this? I just bought it, I want to install an amp for a subwoofer from my factory radio on my malibu. I heard to get the signal from the rear speakers but exactly how? and a 2nd question, what is the one lil black cable for? Do you have any pics of your install?
