Electrical Update: Solid State RPM Relay

By admin No comments

After arriving home from DMC Florida and turning off the car, the frequency valve ‘stuck’ in the on position. Diagnosed the problem as my RPM relay sticking (completing the circuit). As this is my second RPM relay problem in the past two years (my other was the car dying out on the highway) I decided […]

New door lock actuators, door lock module, remote trunk release

By admin No comments

Wanted to do an overhaul on the door lock system just to get rid of my old door lock module. While I have not had any problems with it, I decided to pick up Toby’s new door lock module and actuator system. Let me just say that it is extremely easy to install this (once […]

Horn switch replaced

By admin No comments

Continuing on with the electrical work over the past few weeks, I am now finally getting around to fixing the sketchy horn. Ever since I have purchased this car, the horn worked 40% of the time at best. After several tests, my assumption was that the wiring was melted in the horn stalk, or had […]

Third brake light install completed

By admin No comments

Special thanks to Shannon from the Ohio DeLorean Club for the part #’s. For this install you are going to need 2 rolls of 16 gauge wire, some quick disconnects, and the brake lights of your choice. I went with “Red Lens, Mini Red 12-LED Brake Light ZX830680R Each $10.99” from www.jcwhitney.com. I decided to […]

New store bought blower motor installed

By admin No comments

After reading an interesting post on the DeLorean Mailing List about a cross reference blower motor, I decided to pick one up. The part # for this is Siemens PM106, and it is a drop in replacement for our blower motors. AutoZone carries these sparsely, if they have it in stock its $18.99, if they […]

LED interior light update pictures

By admin No comments

First, for those who think the binnacle would not look good with LEDs, or look too dim, heres a pic for you. Rather than replace with the WLED-W white bulbs on superbrightleds.com I used the WLED white 6 LED bulb. It is bright, gives the car a more modern white with a tint of blue […]

New stereo on its way

By admin No comments

Today I went ahead and ordered one of the stereo’s I was eyeing for the DeLorean. I was considering several Sony stereos with the active black face, so it would fit in with the cars looks once installed. I did not want anything like todays usual stereos with lots of flashy colors and buttons to […]

Binnacle removal – PREPARE for the LEDs

By admin No comments

The binnacle has been removed! Successfully might I add! The job was a bit challenging, six small 7mm nuts and washers hold the binnacle in to the dash. I read that it was best to take out the kneepads, but that actually ended up being more pain than it was worth. If you have a […]

Small fix

By admin No comments

I replaced the battery bolts that hold the positive and negative wires to the car battery. The bolts that had came with the battery the previous owner purchased were pretty stripped, and the positive wire would pop out if jarred enough. I did not want this to happen when driving, or the DeLorean would just […]

Tachometer (maybe) fixed

By admin No comments

I was instructed to try cleaning the tachometer ground wire to stop it from freaking out on me, so that is what I did. It involved removing the rear parcel shelf wall, which was very easy after removing the four screws that hold it in, located below the net hooks. The wall pulled forward, and […]
