#39 of 89 Passenger window/Interior lights/tail lights
Jun 15, 2009 (4:50 pm)
I changed the clutch in my '91 r/t turbo and shortly after my interior lights and brakes lights stopped working. The fuse had blown and keeps blowing everytime I change. It has to be a short somewhere, but I can't find it. Also my passenger window was working fine until last week. It will not go up or down. The switch box seems like it has no power going to it. If anyone has any ideas please share.

I looked in the repair manual, and the only wire i see when you replace a clutch is up under the dash where the clutch and break pedal are located> There is the stop light switch, the clutch switch< vehicles with auto cruise control. Maybe one of those wire's got pinched sence your break light quit working. If you were up under the dash that is. Other than that i don't see any wire's where you take apart the clutch its self. As far as your window. get your self a o-meter and check for continuity in the switch. Repair manual will show you how to do this. Sorry i can't be more help. But that is probably what it is other than the motor its self. Alot of window motors are sold on e-bay.

Me again, As to your problem with your window. There is a Power Window relay under your dash, left side; it looks like there are four different types of relays. It is the one on the bottom right. By your left knee.

Re: My 93 stealth that wouldn't stay running, I don't want to jinx myself so I won't tell you the problem is fixed yet, but I will say that since taking it over to a friends house three days ago and putting a new battery in prior to that I'm not having any problems with it so far. My friend & I spliced those wires bak together and by the way after alot of research I now know those wires were coming from the VIC Motor and running to & under the Wire Rail. We also turned the idle speed up 100 more rpms ,it's sitting at approx 800/900rpms at a idle, my friend also told me that the problem could reappear since we don't know what fried the vic motor wire harness in the first place but it's been three days w/out any problems, I'm still holding my breath & praying like hell that it wont mess up again, Thanks for everybodys input. I'll keep ya all informed in couple weeks if it's still on the road. by ramonac

Glad to hear that. So i take it that the alternator was doing its job. I don't know what the VIC motor is or what the abbreviation stands for. I'm sure i put a new one on my car but under a different name.. Thanks

It's the Variable Induction Control Motor. There are two wiring harnesses attached to it those wires come from that motor and run under the Wiring Rail (which is above the Fuel Injectors). The purpose of that motor escapes my memory at this moment. The wires also exit the left side of the wiring rail, the vic motor is located on the Plenum ( right-hand side towards the back). I've taken in a lot of info & I'm still processing it all, but hopefully I've explained it good enough.
#45 of 89 92 Stealth R/T that won't start and clutch won't release
Jul 03, 2009 (2:21 pm)
I have a stealth that sat under a tree for over a year. At the time it was parked it was losing antifreeze and overheating, but running fine other than that. Now, I replaced the battery and can't get the clutch to release. I pressed the clutch switch/brake under the pedals and can get it to turn over but it isn't getting any fire. Is there some safety lockup on the clutch? It was towed but only rolled far enough to get it on and off of the tow truck flatbed with a winch. Also, where do you get a manual for this car?

After setting for a year. Your gas filter could be pluged up . It is on the fire wall behind the battery. Easy to get to. I would replace it anyway. As for no fire, maybe
corrosion on the plug wires and inside the coils. As for the clutch there are so many parts. I have looked it up and can't find a specific cause. But check the easies first.. There is a check VALVE under the hood. Looking at the engine on the driver side toward the back next to the power steering reservor. See if it is moving freely It is inside the vacume hose.
Not much help but a start. As for the book. "Books 4 Cars $93.90 I can't fine the phone number, but i looked on line. They are out of Seattle Washington

I have found so far like it looks like the neutral safety switch isn't connected and there was a box in the rear right of the car that had two plugs disconnected (is that the vic box?). The clutch was new when the previous owner bought the car so I can't figure out why the clutch won't disengage unless I screwed something up by pushing it without the key. I really am not liking the amount of vacuum issues with this car. There is a website stealth316.com that looks promising but I am going to bleed the clutch out and see if that releases the clutch.
Hey, it looks amazing in my driveway even if it doesn't run.
