1 lead from the motor to pos.        ( 12v supply, battery)

There are 2 wires right ? batteri pos to one and batteri neg to the other ?? does it matter which one ??

Thanks ;-)

It was the missing ground wire. I straighten the metal piece out and made sure the center screw went thru it

Hi

I have had the complete speedo unit out of the car, and tonight when I should put it back in something fishie happened :-(

If I installe the unit and tighten the screws etc, and pull the headlight switch the instrument ligt dont work - but the high beam, and the L / R indicater lights.

If I loose the screws and let the cluster unit drop 1/4" everything works fine

I have had it out many times now, and cant figure out why and were things go wrong - any help ??

Thanks
Claus

Thanks for you input guys - however I have spotted the problem now ;-)

I have a new ignition switch installed ½ year ago, now I have checked the starter and solenoid - they work fine. I can hear the starter relay clicking when cranking the car.

I couldnt get power to the purple wire on the starter, so I followed the wires back in the car - removed half the instruments panels etc for checking alle the terminals etc, and everything looke fine !?!?

so after pulling my hear all day I accedently discovered the the wireloop didnt bring power to both purple wires, and I did a new wire loop between the 2 purple and the cars starts perfect :-))))

I have ordered a new neutral switch, so tomorrow EVERYTHING goes back, AND I am a hole lot weiser in how things work and look from the backside of the dashboard ;-)

What would be the point of shorten the circut permanent ??

The loop is on the wireharnes end - if I disconnect the wires from the neutral switch, should it allso start then?

I am trying to truble shoot why it wont start... and after a while it starts a few times, and then it dont again.

Where should I look ? and how do a look ??

Thanks
Claus

I think I have a bad neutral switch - but how can I tell for sure if it is bad or okey ??

The car starts most time, but now it will not start - nothing happens :-(

Any idea what that loop wire is for? and why it is there ?

Regards
Claus

Since I live in Denmark I prefere Summit for all parts possible, bacause they have a smooth online system.  but I have ordered a few part# for my hideaway headlight with on other major dealer ( I will not mention the name ).

I am getting all kinds of BS and delay on delay on shipping the parts, so I just would like to know what other alternatives I have.

Where do you guys buy your special/original..ish Camaro Parts ??

Thanks / Claus

Just out of curiosity, what is the turn around time on parts shipped to Europe?

The bigest issue for us is the shipping cost, shipping time and import tax etc

If I buy parts worth lets say 1000 $ from summit and have them shipped directly to my danish adress the shipping charge could easyli be 300-400-500 $ with flight - I have them within 1 week

when the parts hits the custums I have to pay 10% import tax of the total of the invoice ( 1.300,- ), then I have to pay 25 moms/VAT ( sorry dont know the us name for that ), and then a $ 35 fee for custums handling

So the total pris for parts worth 1000,- in denmark is ( 1000 + 300 = 1300 x 10% = 1.430 X 25% = 1.787,- + 35 = ) 1.822,- which gives us the total in danish DKK approx 1 USD is 11 DKK

Then there is something called ShopUSA - it is a company specilised shipping stuff from US til Denmark. it is free to join, and the you get a US post adress with a suite #. THAT is veru nice because most vendores like summet etc ship free to a US adress, and we can put the us adress in our ebay etc.

they charge us pr M2 space but still it is very les shipping costs - around 50-75 $ pr shipping. the import tax and moms/vat is offcause the same but it amout is much less. when we use this shopusa the rate is usualy 1 usd = 8 DKK

So buttom line I can save DKK 3.000,- ( $500-550 ) on parts worth $ 1000,- when using shopUSA. The catch with using the ShopUSA is the ekstra time - it takes usually 2-3 weeks to get to my house.

we have off cause shops the deal with parts but there prices i much higher, sometimes 1 USD X 16-17 DKK :-(((
