    Hey guys, ive got a vt ss and theres a few thing weird going on atm. When u start to drive of slowly theres a lil shudder, could it be diff, drivetrain or what? And reverse lights dont come on any more (havent cheakd see if bulbs are going or not) or could it be a fuse? And if anyone is good with electronics here could you tell me why my speakers pop loud now when i turn the car on or off :/ sorry about the questions cheers

    the shudder could be your fuel pump.

    and with your reverse lights maybe you should check the bulb and fuse, would make more sense.

    and are they afermarket speakers?

    Ok let see:

    Drive Shudder: Commodores are a bit notorious for having shudders in the drivetrain, does it happen when you give it a boot full or just at slow acceleration. It could be something as simple as an engine mount.

    Reverse lights: First thing is check the fuse panel under the steering wheel, it has a guide as to what fuses are where on the back of the panel, check none are blown, if it checks out then check the bulbs, but if both are gone it's probs a fuse.

    Speaker Pop: Does it have the original stereo installed, or an aftermarket one?

    Sorry to ask more questions than I answered, but need a bit more info to help.

    Regards,
    Mike.

    Yes they are hooked up to an amp, yeap after market ones and the shudder is just under slow acceleration such as 0-20km not a massive shudder but u can feel it still and will have a look at all the fuses and bulbs when i get home. And also i forgot to ask when i unlock/lock doors with button the indercaters dont flash anymore is that a fuse problem as well sorry cheers every 1 the help

    Ok, well I would reckon the speaker issue is either a) dodgey wiring or b) craptastic components - did you do the install or did you buy it that way?

    As for the flashing on lock/unlock. First up try disconnecting the battery for 5mins to enable the computer to reset (have any stereo security codes ready). Then try locking/unlocking. Other than that check all fuses. It's a Commodore - the electrics aren't brilliant.

    The shudder, that's gonna be abit harder to diagnose, do you feel the shudder in the steering wheel/gear stick. Or is coming from a particular place in the car?

    Ok, check it all and get back with us, do you know if the engine or transmission mounts have ever been replaced?

    I'm not sure on the whole shudder thing, but my engine mounts were worn and at low speeds, it would shudder then thump if I gunned it, but the mounts were very collapsed. Regardless, there are people on here who can help you much more than me lol.

    Ok, so the indicator blink is still not working?

    What about the reverse lights, if the fuses were all fine have you checked the bulbs?
