Re: clock resets self & tach ? (piglet)

the doors circuitry shouldn't be tied into the clock's. The only thing I can think of is the wire is loose on the clock, so when you open the door it disconnects momentarily. Is it fairly consistent?
Have you tried opening the door but don't close it, and then push the door pin located along the door jam, see what happens.

actually the door circuit is kind of. the doom light the cig outlet and the clock memory are together (maybe more). I'm not sure how though. all i know is that if you blow that fuse (second from the right) that the cig outlet and the dome light won't work. and the clock won't work or keep time when the car is off, but will when the car is on. the dome light is switched from the door switch so that's how it's some how connected.....
this is a really weird problem... i don't know what to tell you...

EDIT: this how my 93 GLX is...

no, but the trip odo will rest.

yah, trip odo...thats what i meant. whats the fix for this? seems the previous owner had a reoccuring (sp?) problem with that particular circuit. maybe hard wiring the cig lighter so its on it own circuit?

um... sure you could rewire it....or you could just not blow the fuse, maybe you need a bigger fuse if it blows to much
