    Finally In!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well I have finally got the GOAT's locks unlocked!!!!!! It turns out when I was trying to back charge the system thru the starter I was grounding out the charge because of the lack of space under the car to get to the starter. My father-in-law was able to back charge the system and get the key fobs to unlock the doors, but he had a body shop tech from next door come over to look at the lock and see if he could tell what was wrong. He turned the key in the lock cyclinder and knew right away that something was loose inside and the panels need to come off and the locking mechanism needs to be put back together correctly. I'm just excited that I finally got in it!!!! Haven't had time to fix it because we move this week and everything is pretty much packed away, but my father-in-law said he would fix it for me this week sometime. Just wanted to let you guys know that we finally got to the root of the problem and just have to fix it to solve the problem. YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!

    Not tryin to hijack, but didnt think it was worth a whole new thread. I was wondering, where do you guys put the negative cable on the GTO when jumping the battery? Manual says an unpainted piece of the engine block. I was thinking right over here in this general area (obviously away from moving parts). Blue arrow is not my first choice, but its easier/more stable/farther from the battery. Red is my fallback if blue isnt a good idea. Thanks for the help!

    NO!!
    Your blue arrow is pointing to the fuel rail X-over. That is a fuel line!
    I usually put it to the belt tensioner bracket area or even the battery.
    Depending on your cable ends some have a pointy end and I have clamped onto exhaust manifold bolts before with those.
    Don't be afraid of the bottle!!! Be afraid of your tune!!!

    No I wasnt kidding. This is my first V8, and I wasnt sure how to jump it. Why you gotta be a douchebag about it? Not all of us were lucky enough to be born car-geniuses. Posts like yours are what makes some people afraid to ask simple or "stupid" questions. Whats more stupid? Me asking about jumping, or me jumping my car without knowing exactly what to do?

    Don't sweat that. . . . . . . . . The ONLY "Stupid" ? is the one that you don't ask. I have been changing my thought process myself and been altering the power I give others to upset or alter my moods. It just isn't worth the power you give others.
