    Thanks for the info. Racing my SC isn't my thing, but the show and get together would be fun. Only had the car for a year and haven't taken it to any events yet. I'll see if it will fit in my...

    These look pretty good and I'm guessing they haven't been sitting out in the sun since you parted out your car back in 2012. Do you have the driver door panel also? I see the chrome strip is...

    Thanks for the update.

    I was at the show with my son, but without my Bird. It was my first time attending the show and wanted to get a feel for how it worked. Hopefully next year I'll be able to...

    According to the sales brochures I have, the 89 interior color was 'shadow blue' but the 90 interior was 'crystal blue' which I'm guessing is a lighter blue. The SC and LX used the same interior...

    This blue looks quite a bit lighter than mine. It also has a blue switch panel rather than the black on my doors, which might have been a change by 92. I don't know if the tweed was available in...

    The panel looks pretty solid, but it seems lighter colored than what I have. My car seems closer to navy blue than this, but it could just be the lighting. Is this out of an SC?

    Is it dark/navy blue? I have seen a light blue door panel online but not sure if it came out of an SC. If the arm rest/door pulls are solid I would be interested in both door panels. Can you post...

    89 Dk Blue interior door panel

    The rare dark blue leather on my 89 has grown on me, and I suspect it's unique which is nice.

    The problem with a rare interior color is it's rare. Go figure.

    The passenger side pull handle...

    New speedo

    I ended up going with a new speedo in the original IP cluster. Got a nice 140mph unit from TBSC shop with new odo gears and set to the proper mileage. I assume the original dead speedo has no real...

    New speedo fixed problem, but came with bad odometer

    Update:

    I decided the sensor must be good since the odometer was working just fine so I picked up a new IP. The speedo now works, but the IP came with a bad odometer. Plus the check gage light...

    Thanks, I'll look at those options to narrow down the problem.

    The VMM hasn't called for any changes. I have put about 3000 miles on the car total, but only a couple hundred since the speedo went...

    Speedo sits at 125

    This is an old thread, but it has the best pictures of the likely problem part.

    A few months after buying my 89 5-spd, the speedo pegged to 125 while I was driving it. A couple days later it...

    Glad you found a buyer. I found the Titanium 5-spd I wanted, but this would have been nice to have as well.

  17. Success!

    I finally found the problem after pulling the IP gauge cluster completely out of the car for inspection.

    The printed circuit flap in the left side connector was folded back and not making...

    Looking at the EVTM again, it indicated a bad headlight switch could be the cause of a 'group' of IP lights out.

    I installed a new headlight switch, but no change. Still no hi-beam indicator.

  19. Still no indicator light - out of ideas

    So I swapped out the hi-lo beam relay but still no high beam indicator light on dash.

    To recap, I had no hi-beams or hi-beam indicator, but did have flash to pass.
    Troubleshooting to date:

    It turns out the "high-low beam relay" isn't the part you link to. That part is the "auto lamp dual coil relay", somewhat mislabeled as "headlight dimmer" relay. We were on the same track, since I...

    I got the bulb out and it looks good. Not obviously blown and no break in the filament I can see. If I'm using my multi-meter correctly (a big if) I'm also seeing resistance across the bulb.

    I'm hoping I don't have to open up the switch to check, since it's NOS. Plus the blue dash light doesn't come on with the switch disconnected, while the brights do come on. I'm guessing it's a bulb...
  23. Dashboard light

    I'm working this issue with the 89. New MFS didn't fix it, but I pulled the auto-delay / auto-dimmer switch and the high beams worked. Installed NOS auto dimmer switch and the high beams still...

    Creighton,

    Thanks. I bought an EVTM off Ebay which should be here this week. I'll pick up a shop manual next. I think the fuses are good because flash to pass works, but I'll take a look.

    I verified no emissions test required since it's over 25 years old, so that's good and I can get the title transferred and plates on the car.

    I'm going to replace the MFS as step one and a new...
