brother went down to florida and left this car up here and said i could have it PIMP!!!!!!!
its a got a few problems which mainly is the drivers handle outside broken and lock wont unlock thru the switches

what do you think.......
what can i do CHEAP...... this is just my play around vehicle now. i got the key in the mail today and went and had a friend drive it to its new home my home....LOL

also another downfall is... HE LOST the freaken TITLE so somehow i either gotta get a new one printed up OR say F it and just get plates and insurance in my name and dont worry about it in his name... and just drive it till it dies and gutt it...LOL








got it home today.

worst thing is the broken drivers door handle! that blows!!!! gotta get another handle ASAP!

The traction control system is actually quite simple. Using the ABS sensors, the car will detect wheelspin on the front wheels. It does this by comparing the wheel speed at all 4 corners. If it detects slippage, the computer will retard the timing to take away power to the wheels. It does not apply the brakes to stop or slow wheelspin. When the ETS or ABS system is being put to use, the "Low Trac" light will come on.

ya i can spin the crap outta the tires but nothing trying to stop it.LOL

i click that button in and out and i cannt seem to notice anything happen... the ETS OFF light is always ON. as well as the ABS and the coolant low light also ON... and of course the air bag light...... that was always ON on my friends 95grand am... so im realy not worried about it.LOL

main thing starting to **** me off is that door handle being broken and the door lock on the drivers door only locks.... the switches will not unlock it :( im hoping its just a bad actuator! im gonna check out all of the fuses today and check everything out and grease it all up this weekend since im off work....


and i realy know about how loud they can get! i instaled 2 15s type Rs and a JBL 1200.1 amp sealed in her trunk and it got preaty freaken loud!!!!!!! i can only imagine my 18XXX ported in a grand am.LOL IM SURE ITS GONNA BE ONE BIG RATTLING CAN!!!!!!
