Subject: Was: Voice Modules

On the topic of adding sounds to the Delorean,
a few years back I created a little device for #2860
that would make the "time machine door opening sound"
ala Back to the future, when you opened the door.

I got a sound chip from Radio Shack and burned onto it
the sound effect taken from the movie.  I then hooked this
up to a little powered speaker (ran on "D" batteries) also 
from Radio Shack, I think, and then connected it to a door
pin switch, and set the speaker on the deck behind the driver's
seat.

A fun, temporary little gadget for shows and things.  You can
build it in an afternoon for less than $40.  The hardest part
was capturing the right sound, which I loaded into the computer
to remove background noise and to "punch" it up a little.

Maybe someone remembers a reference to a voice module from a Datsun that
worked in the D.  I recall reading something about it in a D-World many
years ago.

I am definitely interested in purchasing this voice module. If anyone
knows the price and is familiar with the product, please share your
knowledge with other Delorean owners. How do we order this and what are
the phone numbers?

Subject: [DML] Voice Modeules for the Delorean


They say what is old is new again. In the 80's when the Delorean Club
of America was still around, they sold a diagnostic voice module that
would tell you if a light was burned out and many other things. Later
in the Delorean World Magazines there was an advertisment
for "Autotalk". The ad that I am looking at is in Volume 6, Delorean
Expo '89 Issue, page 20. In the ad it refers to the device as having
the personality of "Tiffany" and the personalities were
interchangable by changing a chip. If anybody wants the address, let
me know.

Subject: Speedo gone nuts!

Hi all,

I was out on Saturday night and having had new tyres, Casey's new air 
filter and re-ballenced and tracked wheels I thought I would give the 
car a bit of welly down the A12 (dual carridgeway).

Anyway it shifted along quite nicley and the spedo comfortably got 
back round to the 'M' on 'MPH' at the bottom of the speedo, but 
thenmy turning came up so I had to resume normalspeed.

Anway later that night I heard a clicking sound in the drivers foot 
well and the speedo started to jump around, then the clicking stopped 
and the speedo died.

I had a fiddle with the lower and upper drive cables and both seemed 
to be ok, but what does the white box in the drivers footwell do? I 
think this is where the noise was comming from and therefore expect 
the problem lies here.

Any help appreciated as always.

Imagine my surprise when I get home from work yesterday afternoon and start
flipping through the cable channels.   You know the normal ones.... 
speedvision, ESPN, Fox Sports, and ESPN2...  Well of course I had to stop
immediately on ESPN2 when I saw a Delorean.  Turns out a whole show was
dedicated to the Delorean (I'm just guessing on the whole show -- I only
caught the last 10 or so minutes).

Besides hearing the usual how many cars were made, the type of engine,
stainless steel panels, estimates on value, you actually get to see DMCJOE. 
Yes you get to put a face with the e-mails and the voice at the other end of
the phone.

Good job Joe, and the owner who appeared on the show as well (I'm blanking
on your name, sorry)

This is the good type of press that the DMC name needs and deserves.

Subject: Re: Parts not available

Hey gang,
    I've actually been working on the steering column trim pieces.  I've got a digital
model file all ready to send to a manufacturer, my problem is I can't find anybody that
will do it cheap enough to get the DMC parts suppliers to bite.  If anyone knows anyone
who has the capability and might be interested in developing these parts let me know!
We've got a good start on it.  You can see a few jpgs of my model file in the photos
section of the yahoogroups website.  the URL is:

http://groups.yahoo.com/group/dmcnews

- Click on the photos link on the left side
- Click on the "Album" named steering column shroud

    Let me know via private e-mail if anyone is interested in helping me develop this.

        Thanks,

Subject: Re: Speedo gone nuts!

The "little white box" you are refering to is the lambda counter. It's 
purpose is to light the lambda light in the instrument panel at the 
proper intervals to inform the operater it's time for maintainence. My 
guess is that you are having trouble with the lower cable, (the one 
from the angle drive to the lambda counter). Either it is damanged 
where the inner cable connects to the counter or it is too short and 
is slipping where it is supposed to connect. The way to fix is usually 
to replace. If you have an "early" car you might also need a support 
bracket by the angle drive. It is also possible that the cable is 
actully broken.

The little white box is a mechanical counter for the Lambda system.  
It turns on the "LAMBDA" light when you have gone a certain number of 
miles, and the oxygen sensor should be replaced.  It expresses itself 
in terms of "percentage life" ... and must be reset when it has turned 
on the light.  Naturally, you should replace the sensor at the same 
time that you reset the counter.  This counter has some gears and 
other mechanisms inside, and could possibly "eat itself", causing a 
disconnect in your speedometer drive.  Good luck.
