Re: 2011 9C3 ignition acting up

What have you checked to correct? Just a few strategies we have tried in other threads: Check health of main battery 12.4 volts or higher best bet. Disconnect the AUX battery to take it out of the equation. If you got a jumper cable long enough (18 footer) run it from the Negative battery terminal ...

Re: 2011 9C3 ignition acting up

Almost stuck at a gas station recently :shock: Now it seems like the starter is bad. I cross my fingers before trying to start the car. I hear the click sound coming from underneath the car when I turn the key, I hold the key and my breath and wait for it to start turning over, it's taken as long as...

Yes there is a solenoid in the column that gets a signal from the shifter that the car is in park and can release the key.

Re: 2011 9C3 ignition acting up

Old post but new revelation....Right before this car's warranty ended I had my local dealership fix anything and everything they could under warranty. One thing I mentioned to them was the ignition problems I'd been having. They replaced the ignition. It didn't fix the issue though, and now the car ...

Re: Transmission Pan upgrade

It was getting the occasional flare 3rd gear shift and it's all good now. I've been thinking of doing this pan. Need to confirm though, is this symptom where the car has a significant delay in getting between gears? I always drive my 2011 in tap to shift manual mode and quite often if I'm getting o...

Re: Car covers by COVERCRAFT

They will make it to order--it is not an in-stock "on the shelf" product, since there are so many fabric options. They DO have a pattern that is specific for Caprice, and it is still good. I had a cover made last year. They are not inexpensive. Ok so the Holden Caprice cover will fit a PPV? Just wa...

Re: Car covers by COVERCRAFT

Did Covercraft end up producing a cover from these efforts? Looks like this post is a few years old.

Re: Widening stock steel wheels - anyone thought about it?

Done and they fit like a dream... Does this dude still post? Was there any more room, inside or outside, for any more width on the rears? Looking to have steelies widened too. No more room on outside for rears, and not sure about inside. I'll check next time I'm under there. Haven't done much with ...
