  1. Replacment HVAC stickers?

    Appearance Modifications
    It's my understanding that the round HVAC dial stickers are not longer available. Bummer. What about the recirculate/fresh stickers? I'm needing to heat gun some dash plastics and those 2 stickers will definitely need to be replaced.

  7. No heat

    Care, Maintenance, and Troubleshooting
    I just picked up (another) MR2. Don't remember if I ran the heat at all or not during the test drive. I get it home and change all the fluids.

    I did seem to go through the gears before ending with a flashing neutral. After that however, I got no lights at all.
  12. P0863 Code

    well fudge, I'm back to having no lights at all again (no neutral light, no amber lcd). I think the new ECU has been poisoned by the rest of the SMT system.
