Question about Cars & Trucks
Hi i have an 89 buick park avenue with the standard cluster. is it possible to swap it out with a digital cluster? is there any fuses or relays that have to be added or is it a as simple as plugging it in?
In my experience with an '89 cutlass supreme with a digital dash cluster, I have seldom seen such unreliable junk from gm. I don't think it's a simple swap, or I sure would have tried it, lol, my memory of it fades...thankfully ! I do remember recoiling in all haste to exit when the dealership told me what it would cost to send my cluster off for repair. I got by with a salvage one, that also worked only sporadically. You'd be much better off spending money on maintenance and repair, leave the digital dash in the dust.

If the trans.oil is dark brown in color and smell's burnt your tranny is probably on it's last leg.If tou have bad pump pressure or low oil you will have to rev the eng to get it to build enough pressure to move.Your detent cable or kick down cable is for passing,when you step on the gas when passing someone this cable is pulled causing the trans. to go into a lower gear and when you let off the gas it should shift back into a higher gear.if it's out of adjustment it will kickdown to soon or to late.If your car has alot of miles it may be in need of a filter and fluid change,but usually when slipping occures its to late and you will need a replacement tranny.Hope this was helpfull.

on the passenger side under the dash there is a cover panel. take the screws out and pull it off, carefull the light needs to be removed after you do this. the fuse panel will be close to the left. oh by the way. their are 4 fuse boxes on this model.

THE MAP SENSER IS VERY EASY!!!!!
Its on the top of the BLACK PLASTIC going to your air filter..IT will be 2 inches by 3 inches with 1 plug and 3-4 screws holding it depending on engine size...VERY EASY GIG....Make sure when you remove it to get the hole cleaned out sometimes the old map sensor breaks the plastic off...

For most common location, open hood and look near cowl for a plug near the air conditioning box just forward of the windshield wipers. It should have several wipers and the resistor itself protrudes downward into the box held in place with two screws. Screws have 7mm, 8mm, or 1/4 inch hex head.
If not: look near blower itself under the dash on the passenger side. The resistor should protrude upwards into the HVAC housing near the blower.
