Yikes, got a ride in a neighbors truck yesterday and he had wireless Android Auto, made me shop for headunits.  The Pioneer w8400nex has network mode and wireless AA.  If anyone ever see's them go reasonably somewhere I am all in.  Will have a Kenwood to part with then.

Didn't know they had wireless AA!

Yesterdays fun. After being locked out several times, I was in high hopes the door switch would fix an electrical gremlin with the door locks. No such luck. Testing actuators and checking wire today in hopes its not the BCM.  Could be the fob also.

On the plus the window works again! 

No automatic alt text available.

What year and type of vehicle? and are all of the locks being faulty at once? or is this just a certain door?

A 60’s Ford/Chevy 2wd truck lowered and tubbed in the rear. With a crown Vic front end and and a big block. That’s the real dream. That or a ‘55 Bel-air set up about the same. Yes please. :wub:

I been eye balling a few GN's except the one I would like asking price is $49,999 and for a non-daily driver is way out of my budget..I found a couple cheaper ones under 10k that needs TLC "or restored" that would be more fun anyway.

Put a new headliner in the Yukon this afternoon.  Didn't think it would take that long.  Came out alright for an amateur first attempt.  Had to do the visors and the ceiling console too, not sure how one is supposed to redo the visors, but they worked.

Scraping a headliner board without power tools would suck.  Variable speed grinder and a wire brush worked well.

If anyone is looking for a jump start pack, the NOCO GB40 seems like a pretty decent one.  Had one for a year or so, its started a 3.8L charged v6 without a battery.  Got a new one in this past week for the other vehicle, it started a 5.7L V8 without a battery too, I was impressed.

2006 Nissan X.

After making a prognosis I started with the simplest thing. Which was the key fob. Long behold that was the root of the problem! Removed the battery and found my extra fob and all is well.

 Now dealing with some wicked wheel wobble. Was on the passenger side and minimal before doing will bearings and tire rotation. Now is on the driver side and fairly severe. 

Pretty sure I have a radial belt separation going on. Possibly a bent rim. Have not been impressed with the BFG KO2’s. Really not going to be impressed if this is in fact true.

 What material did you recover it with?

 I wouldn’t mind seeing a picture? :D

 The grinder is definitely my favorite and most versatile tool. When in doubt, break the grinder out!

Awesome.  They'd just be in a box here.  Dying to know what you will end up choosing.

 Amusingly the RS’s have tickled me the most so far. They stay very well composed at my listening level. Crystal clear would be my description.

 I’ll humbly admit it has taken swapping out a few in a short period of time to get 100% confident that I am getting the most out of my crossover settings. Now it’s on like Donkey Kong!
