Does anyone know if this car is equiped with reminder chimes for the
headlights and keys. I've recently replaced the ICU which fixed the flashing
oil light, rear defroster grid, intermittent wipers, and an occassional
chirping (chime?). But I thought it would also fix the chimes if they were
present but it did not.
I did open up the old ICU and the circuit board had multiple cases of
black spots/corrosion/rust. Evidently some people are capable of repairing
these by cleaning them up and replacing certain capacitors for just a few
dollars. Unfortunately this is way over my head and opted to spring the $175
for a new unit. It was fairly easy to replace with the most difficulty
coming from releasing a couple of the upper wiring connectors from the fuse
After posting this I had doubts about my memory, so I checked the wiring
diagram. I turned out to be half-right: The lights-on CIRCUIT is part of
the ICU, but the BEEPER UNIT (the buzzer itself) is separate.
NEITHER lights-on nor key-in will work if the door switch is bad, so
check that first. I repeat my earlier question: Does your dome light
work properly (when in the middle position)? If the door switch is bad,
the dome light won't come on when you open the door.
The dome-light does not work with the door switch. As soon as I have a
chance I'll pull it out and take a look at it. The seatbelt buzzer does work
Thanks for the help.
