  1. Headlights turn on and off by itself?

    Thanks for the reply, I will look into it and see if there's any change.
  2. Hey all, So starting a few days ago, I would go back to my Z after work and what not and for some reason the battery would always be dead. At first, I thought I just needed a new battery, but finally one night, I was about to go out for a drive and I see that my headlights are on. I thought I had simply left them on, but then they quickly turned off.. and then on.. and then off again. I'm assuming it does this while i'm gone, which is why the battery keeps dying on me. I also want to add that when i'm driving, sometimes the left turn signal will just turn on by itself. And I don't mean turn on like when you use your signals to turn, the left arrow on the dash doesn't flicker, it stays solid. And outside the car, the turn signal will also be lit & solid. But, by flicking my turn signal left and then back to the off position again, the problem disappears. ^I just wanted to add that little bit in case it might be a clue to my current problem now, but if they're completely unrelated, which i'm sure they very well could be, I apologize. I've never had any electrical problems with my Z and have never needed to learn to diagnose this stuff so all the help I can get is appreciated. Thanks!
  3. analog speedometer mod

    thanks gollum, but it was definitely a member on here. navy blue zx if I remember correctly. he had done it somehow using faces from another gauge cluster and the rest is well.. what I was trying to figure out. I guess WTB section it is. thanks for replying ZUL8TR
  4. analog speedometer mod

    and I could've sworn someone on here was taking the 85mph analogs and putting 140mph faces on em and doing something to it to make it work. that's the only reason I ask.
  5. analog speedometer mod

    i'm really content with 130mph. and honestly i'm trying to sway away from the digital now that mine isn't working. but 85 mph analog is just weird to me. how hard is it to find a 79 130mph speedo & harness?
  6. analog speedometer mod

    So I know i've seen it on here before because I read it once before, but I haven't been on the forums in a while and could not find it using the search function (yes, I tried multiple times), but does anyone have a write up on how to make those custom speedometers that go to 140mph? My digital one is completely not working now, and i'm going to pick up an analog to replace it from the junker, but I was curious to know just how hard/easy that 140mph face replacement/calibration is. thanks

  8. hey blu, i've been contemplating buying some diamond racings. what size and offset are those on your zx? I was thinking 15x10 -51 and -44 in the front

  10. Looking to see if I can get any of these parts off anyone at a good price. budget build right now, trying to get the Z back on the road. looking for power steering reservoir w/pulley for the 280zx. the bearing on mine is done, and I was told by a Z specialty shop that i'm better off finding the reservoir with a good bearing than finding a replacement bearing. also looking for a shaved n42, or n47. just something to clean up the engine bay. i'm itching to install my JSK fuel rail. MSA type 1 classic air dam or the xenon air dam and if it's out there an L28et set up. thanks.

  12. WTB 280zxt or 240zt in So Cal

    very late reply, but you got pictures mark? email me at [email protected] I can respond to you faster that way. I rarely go onto this forum anymore since I haven't been doing anything to the Z lately. (all my time/$$ is going to my project TT Corolla lately)
  13. This was one of my first problems when I got my ZX Do you see yellow/clear or amber colored bits of plastic on the floor? Apparently (and I don't know the technical terms so don't flame) but there's a small circular (almost like nickel, but plastic) stopper type contact that the brake pedal hits when you're not stepping on it (or is it when you are stepping on it?) that makes it so that the brake lights turn back off when you're done braking. Problem is, nissan made the piece plastic, so if you got a ZX that's been sitting for 4 years like I did and start smashing on the brakes on corners and what not driving the hell out of your new project car, the brittle plastic stopper cracks and breaks to bits. Local Z specialty shop over here told me that ^^ and they replaced the plastic piece with a nut (like nut and bolt) regular hex nut (obviously one that fits in the spot the stopper was in) and wala! Brake lights work again. I honestly think they said they simply just glued it in the same spot too? But hey its a metal nut, so it'll never crack and brake on you ever again. I didn't do the repair with my own hands so I couldn't be entirely descriptive but I hope that helped.
