dpaton's CSM DB7 running log - Page 3 Totalled. She gone.

I guess it's time for me to start posting here too. Partly to have a record, and partly so I can get comments on my rants.

1998 DB7, purchased with 153xxx in December of 2011 after my 95 EJ1 decided it didn't want to let me fix anything any more.



OEM fogs, lip, skirts, and rear lip. Yeah, I know the driver's headlights are wet. Going to work on that soon.

Bought it with a P0420 code for bad cat. It had a 1 year old Magnaflow high flow cat on there, that was fine, but with the high flow nature and a few tens of thousands of miles on the cat, it made the system think it was going bad. Fixed with...well...fixed.

It came with Tokico blues and H&R Sports, which are nice.

It has a few spots where someone used VSM touchup paint instead of CSM. Makes a big difference. And there's a little bit of brown evidence showing up that mean a summer's worth of rust mitigation efforts. I hate bodywork, but I'm not bad at it, so I'll just gut through it.

Update, ABS threw DTC 15 this morning. Right rear wheel sensor. It figures, since I had to use a 5lb deadblow to break the snow tires loose a couple of days ago. Stupid salt on steel rims and hubs. I guess I'll spend the weekend playing with wheel sensors. Thankfully the Helms has a nice troubleshooting chart.

The days are nice, but my time has been limited with work and other projects recently. Hoping for a trip to the good carwash this weekend with a billion others. Then pictures, if I can figure out how to hide the ugly-fied front bumper from the camera (someone backed into me in the parking lot. No note, no cameras.)

ABS DTC resolved itself on the way home from work today. I guess that means this weekend will be devoted to fixing the wife's Camry which developed an emissions fault.

Washed the car, detailed the rims, etc last night, expecting the 20% chance of rain would be just that. It spent an hour 20%ing all over my car at lunch today, so no pictures. Maybe tomorrow.

Sad Integra is sad.



Got in to drive the family to work/daycare this morning and....nothing. Chattering from near the fuse panel and no lights on the dash. Shit.

Jump from the good battery in the dead EJ1 in the garage next to my car, and we drive away, but things are acting funny. Radio is dropping out and resetting when I do things like hit the turn signals, or when the A/C cycles (humid as fawk this morning). Not good, but the radio says it's floating between 13.2 and 14.1V, so that looks like the alternator is trying to charge it. Cool.

Got everyone dropped off, made it to work, and turned it back to ACC, so the radio could show me the non-charging battery voltage. Click, everything goes dark. Power locks won't even budge.

Battery is an Optima yellow top I bought about a year and a half ago, and worked fine in my EJ1, and fine in my DB7 until this morning. No indications that it was about to fail. No dome light left on. No headlights left on. Some kind of epic failure occurred. Can't diagnose it right now though, because it's raining, and I'm at work, and I need to, you know, work. Grumble.

Hoping to replace the whole front bumper some day. There's damage from some random ass who backed into me in the parking lot and didn't leave a note, 3 sets of holes from front license plate mounting, a mark from the PO hitting a class V receiver hitch, and a bunch of scratches. Also, it doesn't quite match the rest of the car....it's half a shade lighter. For now though, it'll stay. Battle scars are good for daily drivers. They make the rock chips seem less depressing.

ahh now i see. didn't read very thoroughly...

haha true that on the rock chips. Could the holes be minor enough for repair though? It doesn't look like the hitch punched through. It might help lessen the cost a bit if you're willing to do some prep...

That's sucks to hear about the car man. Sounds a bit freaky to me for that to happen out of no where. Perhaps water is getting in some where and causing the issue.

fyi, that happens ALL the time in my DB. I will turn on car and ABS light will be on. Later in day (even minutes later) next time I start the light will be off. It doesn't affect anything. and always resolves itself within the next startup or 2. I don't know if its actually bad sensors, but I first started noticing it after I fiddled with the rear brake lines when installing LCAs. might even be temperature and humidity related. /fyi.
