How hard would it be to get the service manuals on the Sky? Would love to have them.SkyTech said:looking at the wiring scematic for the dimming feature, you might be able to get away with cutting the grey wire from behind the radio. (circuit # 8)
Some offers of help include putting tape over the sensor, but that will only cause the display to dim all the time, I want it to be bright all the time so I have to disable the dimming of the radio display. Circuit 8 out of the radio is the wire I need, however, getting to that wire is difficult unless I can determine exactly where it goes and hope that it is at a place more accessible that directly behind the radio. Any help?SkyTech said:looking at the wiring scematic for the dimming feature, you might be able to get away with cutting the grey wire from behind the radio. (circuit # 8)
As I quote myself, looks like there is a dimmer on the Sol... just not much discussion about it1994SC2 said:So does the Solstice not feature an automatic dimming sensor?
... I didnt see anything on their forum with regards to this (they have quite a headstart so often you can find answers to technical questions there).
what?Robotech said:Looks to me like you have C2-58 coming out of the BCM to the Dimmer switch at point B, feeding through a resistance of 5 Ohms, then returning to the BCM out of point C on C2-26.
Now, I'm assuming the 5 Ohm resistor is scalable by the dimmer switch (thus sending the amount of dimming selected to the logic in the BCM). Skytech, could you not just jump C2-58 and C2-26 to bypass any possible modulation by the dimmer switch?
You take a wire, attach each end of it to the two wires coming into the dimmer switch thus bypassing the dimmer switch and disabling it without cutting wires.1994SC2 said:what?
Now thats my kind of instructions! I also like books that have sounds along the side! I was just giving you a hard time, but thanks for the lay terms.Robotech said:You take a wire, attach each end of it to the two wires coming into the dimmer switch thus bypassing the dimmer switch and disabling it without cutting wires.
And before someone corrects me, I know the 5 Ohm resistance is the dimmer itself but you know what I mean. LOL
