Subject: DeLorean Car Show Update

Well the web page has been updated again and there are some new and exciting 
things on the web page.  www.deloreancarshow.com

The video list keeps on growing and we have added 13 more videos.  
Finally (thanks AZ group) we have the group from out west with my good 
freinds from AZ who have become like a second family to me since I have been working 
in AZ for the past two years.

Go to the video links at see who's coming to Pigoen Forge 

Next I have added a section on Joe Charter and DeLorean 

Look for 

DeLorean 
not the man
not the car 
the song 

On the home page and click it 
There is a nice section there on Joe and his music
He will be performing live at Pigeon Forge so check him out
We have a mpg file so you can hear the song DELOREAN

Our good friends at  Rainforest Adventures have also been added to the links 
page and I encourage you to check them out both on the Web Page and in Pigeon 
Forge.

This is truely an unique animal experience.

DELOREAN CAR SHOW LOGO     www.deloreancarshow.com

We have a new logo for the car show that will be used on the T-shirts, awards 
and anywhere else we can put it.

Feel free to add this to your web page. It can be found on most pages of the 
web page.

MAGAZINE 

Last but certainly not least is a sneak preview of the next issue of the 
magazine.  Well the cover at least.  It is taken in the mountains of Italy. So 
check it out. We have a number of articles of interest including the rebuilding 
of the mode switch that was just added.

Get your subscriptions in today.

A lot has been happening for the show and we are getting ready to put to
gether the registration materials for you.  

There has been problems getting the visa running but we should be ready to go 
in a few weeks.  Also a new feature will be the DeLorean Car Show Store where 
you can buy car show memorialbelia and other items for sale.  The T-shirts 
will be available for sale prior to the show as well.  Many of you that have 
been to the local shows I have been to recently have them already.

Well this is a lot of informaton here to go over so I think I will stop here 
and save the rest for later.

Again thanks to Gary Hull,  Shannon Yokum and Josh Haldeman for all the help 
and of course all of you on the videos.  Without help and support there would 
be no show.

Subject: Ground Testing of the Idle Speed Micro Switch

The "condition" you described is the fact that the idle speed microswitch 
does indeed open and close but when fully connected the black with green stripe 
wire seems to always be grounded.  This is the same in my case and I believe is 
proper but may be confusing.  If you look at the wiring diagram you'll notice 
that the black with green wire is directly connected to a capacitor AND to 
the vacuum solenoid.  The other side of the vacuum solenoid is connected to fuse 
number 1, along with the fuel pump, RPM relay, Idle Speed ECU and the 
ignition ECU.  These all provide a path to ground that makes you think the idle speed 
switch is not working when you check continuity with the engine off.  The 
better way to test it is put a volt meter across the idle speed switch.  With the 
ignition switch ON but the engine not running (for safety) you should measure 
0 volts at throttle closed, ie idle and about 12 volts when the throttle is 
opened and the switch opens.  You should also be able to hear the vacuum 
solenoid click, ie switch when you open the throttle. Unplugging the vacuum solenoid 
allows you to check the switch using the continuity method because it 
isolated the switch from those other circuits. Let me know.

Thank you,

Dave & 6530

ps Please take a look at my invention at www.tvpedaler.com and let me know 
what you think.

I know of one car where the owner claimed over 500K.

Subject: The Golden DeLorean

Guys,

I read that there is/was a gold DeLorean in a museum in Maryland.

Is it still there or was it sold? I read so much lore that I can't 
keep it all straight. Where in Maryland is it?

Since I live in Maryland, I don't see how I could be a true DeLorean 
owner without making such a short pilgrimage to see this car if it is 
accessible in a museum.

I always did like that saddle brown interior...

List,

i have checked voltage across my idle speed switch and i only get about 7.8 
volts when the car is at idle, and zero when the throttle is open.  surely this 
is not enough juice to make the solenoid work?  i also checked voltage at the 
pin giving power to the black/green wire (pin 8) on the idle speed ECU - it 
only reads about 8 volts.  the pin that gives power to the ECU reads 11.9 
volts.  it seems as though somewhere i am losing juice inside the idle ECU.  it 
should also be of note that when the car is in the ON position, my idle speed 
motor hums.  perhaps there is a link between the two?  or is my idle ECU fried?

Andy

The "last" delorean was gold.  This car was in
Cleveland a few years back, right next to the first
car.  The owner lives in MD, so maybe he has it on
display in a local museum?
