Hello 86GT3.4DOHC, KurtAKX, & Redraif;
Please accept my apologize as I feel like a jerk for not replying. I wanted to reply, but have a health condition that presents itself occasional making it extremely difficult to do such simple task such as shifting or even putting on a shirt. As of this Friday, I've seem to have healed quicker than usual and got to play around with the fiero some more.
I believe I incorrectly conveyed my actions as I am not attempting to get the fault codes with the engine turned over. I only turn the key to the position just prior to starting. I've done this may times over the years on several fieros so it's not new to me. The problem is because the SES light is constantly on I can't pull the codes. The check engine light will not flash, it just stays on and this is with the Pins A & B jumpered.
I removed the chip and replaced it as KurtAKX suggested, but it didn't seem to make a difference. And yes, I was very static conscious while putting it in old chip and even grounded myself prior to putting it in.
I started her it up and removed the TPS and rotated it and it did not seem to make a bit of difference The only sensor that seemed to respond to me unplugging it was the MAP. I decided to stop though as the I later noticed my exhaust manifold glowing cherry red. I'm totally stumped as to what is going on.
Redraif; The only reason why I thought it might be the new computer is that they may have given me one from an automatic or one from an 84-86 with dist (if it's even possible.) The latter It's probably an incorrect assumption on my part as it does drive.
Off Subject Section:
86GT3.4DOHC & KurtAKX, it's good to see you 2 are still on board. It's been some time since I visited the forum. I got pulled into the Turbo Nissan scene, but missed my Fiero.
Anyway, something of interest
I got to drive my first 3800SC auto today
It's in an 88GT. It's got some issues, but drives and rides very nice. The fellow was offering to sell it for $4900. He offered to let me take it out by myself (gotta love fiero guys
but I just didn't feel right about doing so and asked if he would go with me. I didn't really get on it except for once and once it down shifted it pulled pretty good, but the RPM tack jumped to 6200 and I let off as I wasn't sure what the redline was, not to mention it wasn't my car.
The Bad: The car's got a few issues such as un-uniformed wiring that with no protective loom, Cracked front window, rear light assembly, missing ligts (he did a Z28 light conversion placed in the front turn signal indicators,) bad paint, missing front left side indicator, and somewhat crude exhaust. He also mentioned the AC works, but is missing one hose, but says he can fix it prior to selling the car. The speedometer is also off and bounces around like mad (tach fiter perhaps) but he said it was just wired up incorrectly and would also fix it prior to selling in.
The Good: Owner says the motor/trans/supercharger/brakes/absorbers were all recently rebuilt with about 2000 miles. Polyurethanes on all the suspension components. Car drives pretty smooth and seems to have decent power, not to mention the cool sound of the supercharger.
Given my somewhat chronic health condition I have been considering getting an automatic for some time and as I told one of my best friends that if I'm ever getting rid of my fiero, it's because I'm getting another one
P.S. The owner seems to be an forum member. I forgot his name, but said he got the mounts from Purple Reign and got the computer reprogrammed from another forum member. He also mentioned he was able to make it to the last Daytona show so some of you may know who he is.
I have the funds but would have to get rid of my current fiero and doubt I would get too much for it
Anyway, if anyone is interested the 88GT, black, 3800SC, autois on Craigslist in the Tampa Bay area. If I don't end up getting it, I would at least rather another forum member pick it up.
