Yea I did all of that and cleared the codes. Also did the fuse pull too. All the codes disappeared except the fuel pump one. Though the car still won't go in reverse.

Updated the code descriptions:

TWO TOWELS!!!!

After all the microfiber excitement died down it was time for food. Firstly, I put back in Kaylee's TB. See earlier posts as to why I had taken it out in the first place. Anyway, I was able to get in a quick video





Right so fun time over. Serious post time:

I started Kaylee up after dinner and BAM shit hit the fan. I got a slew of codes that came up:

P0102 - MAF Sensor
P0113 - Intake Air Temp Sensor 1 high input
P069E - Fuel Pump Enable Circuit High Voltage
P0801 - Reverse inhibit control circuit
P080C - Upshift/Skip Shift Solenoid Control Circuit Low

WTH?!? I got the car in the garage after some pushing and readjusting (as I can't go into reverse) and turned her off. Just my luck, I try to restart her and she turns over, gets a few cycles in and then shuts off.

The plan WAS to go to cars and coffee tomorrow morning at 7, but currently my car is unable to get out of the garage. The weirdest thing is that I backed into my spot when we went to dinner. So yea, this would be a great time for someone to be a miracle worker.

Dropped the car off at the dealership earlier today. She was bucking pretty hard on the drive over so hopefully its nothing too bad. Didn't get a chance to take pictures of the visors, sorry. Dealership said that they will be giving me a call tomorrow morning after they have a chance to look at her.

Also, my car was just put onto Vote My Ride. So take a look, and vote for me

Got a call from the service manager. Apparentely I blew a fuse (yes a singular fuse). Somehow one of my lighting mods blew a fuse, and that blown fuse is what threw the 5 codes. I'm going to ask them to show/tell me what fuse it is so that if it does happen again I can fix it no problem. He said I was going to be charged for the fuse, which I'm OK with. Not a big deal, considering it actually was one of my mods that caused the problem.

This actually turned out to be not too bad of an experience. Really glad they were able to fix her up in under 24 hours though. Been driving an 2001 Civic and let's just say Honda's 60 time is upwards of 5 seconds. It''s like going from Filet Mingion to White Castle.

*Fun fact: filet mingion is a cut of the Psoas major muscle, whose origin is in the lower lumbar region of the spine and inserted on the greator trochantor of the femur*

Stealerships. Enough said.

"fuse replaced. Not covered under warranty due to after market modifications. "

Parts (aka a singular fuse): $4.16
"diagnostic" and labor fee: $140
Total: $145.38
Getting screwed by a "mod friendly" dealership: priceless

Now I'm not one to b**** and moan about not having a warranty. I'm tuned, I mod, and I understand the risks. That's not what I'm annoyed about. This is not about me having to pay for the "labor". It's about them saying that my lighting mods are what blew a TRANSMISSION fuse. WTH.

That's it. I'm just annoyed that my hard earned money went to a dealer rather than my next mod.

ACE Customs Two-Tone Leather Visors

There are two (2) T15 Torx screws holding the visor into place. Very easy to remove.




Next was putting on the visor cover, again very easy. It goes together with velcro.






Stitching is done in blue thread that matches the blue leather.


Installed
They installed back in easy enough, just the two Torx screws. Though I did notice one tiny thing that could be a problem. The velcro'd side is the pivot side, so over time I think the velcro may come undone. But it's easy enough to fix. Either or, they look good.






Comparison

Cool.

I've been thinking about getting the new sunvisors from Indpowr, but I had not looked to see how hard it is to remove them. It looks pretty easy.

PS: you need to clean your room.

Thanks Em, and yea because I'm the only guy in his early twenties to have a messy room I might make the switch to Indopwr's visors, though not sure yet. Need to spend a few weeks with these guys on and see how they work out.

Snapped a few quick pictures of my parts box fort.

Split drop lowering springs from BMR


Pedders RLCA fix


The box that the Pedders pieces are sitting on is holding the heritage grille. The box is full of Styrofoam peanuts so I thought it'd be best not to open it just yet.
