    Absolutely no idea about cars!! For the past couple of weeks my car has been having issues starting every now and again. 3 days ago, if I didn't start my car as soon as I unlocked it, the battery would die and I would have to jump start it. Yesterday, I had a new battery installed. Today, I...

    VP Commodore Relays?

    Fitting Led Light Bar to VF

    On the VF there is a slot in the front bar above the number plate. Would it be possible to remove some of the fins and fit a light bar in that space? Is it a good or bad idea? (Re fixing point cooling etc).

    Check Engine comes on and off intermittently

    I have a 2003 VY SS ute. The "Check Engine" warning comes on sometimes. The car seems to drive fine and has done for a week. Does this just mean the warning parameter is JUST tripping? Thankyou

    VS Dash Into VP

    Hi, My VP Senator numbers are starting to go blank, I've purchased a VS Calais dash but I understand that it's not an exact swap. What do I need to do to fit vs dash into VP ? There's also a VN Calais dash for sale, is this an easier fit? Thanks,

    Hello, I have some issues with the electrics in my '94 Calais. At what seems like random times while driving the battery warning light will come on, closely followed by the ABS warning light. If it happens when the headlights are on then they will go brighter, and once when the wipers were...
