  1. Starting Issues - Can't Catch a Break

    Engine - Turbo
    Just search "clutch safety switch 3000GT" on Google, and you should find the posts on here that I found. Well, guys, no good news. Pulled the starter, took it in, it tested fine. Bought new starter cables, still not even an attempt from the starter. Someone has brought to my attention the ECU...
  2. Starting Issues - Can't Catch a Break

    Engine - Turbo
    Okay, so awhile back, my '92 VR-4 failed me. I replaced the starter, which did nothing. Replaced the ignition switch (the general consensus of advice I received in regards to click-click-start), still wouldn't start. Got new battery and car started like a dream for a couple days. Then, it...
  3. Starting Problem - At the End of My Rope

    Engine - Turbo
    Well, update: I pulled the battery and took it to AutoZone to have it tested. It had 12 volts and only 45% charge, likely from sitting on the street and me trying to start the car for the past couple weeks. They recharged it, and I put it back in my car. Sure enough, my car roared to life...

    Is this a safe/good option? Based on what I've said, will this possibly fix the issue? 1995 3000GT VR-4: Click-Start Fix
  5. Starting Problem - At the End of My Rope

    Engine - Turbo
    Oh, really? And how did you go about doing that? I have read that fix is cheap, but I wanted to make sure that it has worked for some people.
  6. Starting Problem - At the End of My Rope

    Engine - Turbo
    Once I get a jack low enough to get under the front crossmember and some jack stands, I am going to pull off that blasted shield. Yeah, my father also has a cheater bar. Helped when I had to change my alternator belt. Wish I had had it. Oh, well. So, what should I do if the battery is tested as...
  7. Starting Problem - At the End of My Rope

    Engine - Turbo
    I had that damn heat shield covering the starter. According to Stealth 316, one could remove the bolts holding the downpipe, remove the shield, and remove the starter. The starter itself was easy... the downpipe was not. Those bolts withstood two really strong guys, WD-40, AutoZone's strongest...
  8. Starting Problem - At the End of My Rope

    Engine - Turbo
    As I figured. I will pull my old battery and get it tested later today. Okay, so assuming I find the strap (finding anything in the engine bay is an adventure), what do I do to check it? How do I go about doing it, what results am I searching for, etc.? I am getting brutally chastised by a...
  9. Starting Problem - At the End of My Rope

    Engine - Turbo
    All right, so I have spent the past hour scouring the Internet for an answer to this. I am at my end. I have a '92 VR-4 that was sluggish to start from the day I bought it. I would have to turn the key two-three times to get the engine to fire. Starter would chug away, but nothing would fire. I...
  10. CLICK-CLICK START: The real, no BS fix!

    General
    I just replaced my starter, hoping my car would start. No luck (even after HOURS of bloody work). So, having seen this, I ordered an ignition switch (really irritated I didn't see the Rock Auto one before I bought one from Cherry Hill) a couple days ago. Here's to hoping my VR-4 starts again...
  11. VR-4 Owner in CoS Needs Help

    CO3S
    Thanks for that link. I appreciate it. Okay. So, I pulled off the wheel and splashguard. There was no engine access cover behind the splash cover; the pulleys and belt were there for all the world to see. I dunno if this is a problem (I would assume it is), but anyone have a clue where I can...
  12. Problems for a New '92 VR-4 Owner

    General
    Well, guys, crisis averted. I replaced a bunch of fuses. Dash lights work, tail lights work, brake lights work, and active aero works!! I cannot say how relieved I am! Still got that squealing problem, though. I pulled off the wheel and splashguard. There was no engine access cover behind the...
  13. Problems for a New '92 VR-4 Owner

    General
    So, new problem (yay)! When I bought the car, there was no dimmer switch, thus no dash lights. I got another one from eBay, put it in, and nothing. I checked to make sure the dial was rotated all the way up. Now, my brake lights and tail lights don't work, my dash lights still don't work, and...
  14. VR-4 Owner in CoS Needs Help

    Is the A/C belt the one on the driver's side of the block? And by manual, do you mean the owner's manual? I have that one. If you mean the technician's repair manual, I don't have the $160 3SX wants for that. That squealing is literally deafening if the hood is popped. So, new problem (yay)...

    Hey, guys! I own a '92 VR-4 and I live in Colorado Springs. I have a terrible squealing coming from the belt on the driver's side of my engine block. If the A/C is on, the belt squeals like a banshee in idle, but lowers as the rpm's rise. If the A/C is off, the idle is quieter, but the higher...

  17. Problems for a New '92 VR-4 Owner

    General
    Well, I have a belt in my trunk somewhere. Does anyone know how to replace that belt on the driver's side of the block? Because I have NO clue where to even start!
  18. Problems for a New '92 VR-4 Owner

    General
    That's what I was leaning toward. However, I have no idea how to even go about replacing this belt. Like I said, it's on the driver's side of the block. Yeah, it's the stock radio. Pretty sure it's the '92 head unit. I have an aftermarket one, but not sure if I have the wiring harness. Nor...
  19. Problems for a New '92 VR-4 Owner

    General
    Hey, guys! I hope this is the right section... I just got my '92 VR-4 about a week ago. Definitely not a showroom car, but she's better than my last car! Obviously, this twenty-year-old car has some issues. A lot of the interior could do for some replacement, mainly. However, I have a few...
