    Help with Codes on 1997 Viper GTS

    Steve-Indy, short of an actual Chrysler unit. What do you recommend for a little deeper dive scan tool for the Gen II? (and Gen V for that matter)

    Please Help: Would love to find my car's original owner

    That would be great, would you mind contacting him for me? I have the CarFax report, would it be helpful if I sent it to you? Narrowing down to maybe a Calvin Smith or a David Bowers/Bower/Bauer, I'm getting closer, thanks guys!

    Please Help: Would love to find my car's original owner

    I have a few questions about the car that I'd love to have answered, and the original owner's the only person who could I'm afraid. And aside form that, I'd love to have all the info, like you said. I know the original owner of my Gen V pretty well and have been surprised by the stories...

    Please Help: Would love to find my car's original owner

    Edit: Maybe this isn't coming off the way I intended, but I'm not upset or disgruntled. Quite the opposite! I want to ask questions, learn history, maybe hear some stories, maybe purchase anything like parts or documents that were found after the original owner let the car go. I’m looking for...

    Windshield Wipers Sword-fight

    Just watched Doug's video again for reference, and I believe my wipers (now fixed) work just like his did. I can post another video of mine when I get a chance. You should post yours for comparison.

    Windshield Wipers Sword-fight

    I thought I had updated the thread, I'm sorry! Yes, I was able to fix the issue. After speaking with Jon B at https://www.viperpartsrackamerica.com we settled on trying to fix the problem by replacing the driver's side wiper motor. He insisted that he has very rarely seen the control module...

    What's a Good Price? 2014 w/17,000+ miles

    I'd really appreciate some help determining a good purchase price for this 2014 GTS. It's got a few more miles on it than I'd like but I'm still interested. https://www.kearnsmotorcar.com/shop/vehicle/a2490-dodge-viper Thanks very much!

    WANTED: Looking for a Gen V to make my own!

    Firstly, I can't seem to access classifieds so I apologize for posting here. If it's inappropriate I'll happily take down the post. I'm looking to purchase a Gen V Viper GTS with Laguna Leather interior (or similarly equipped GTC). What I'd like: Hoping to spend no more than $80-85K My...

    Door Hinge Cover *****/Bolt Identification and Supply

    I'm looking for the small black hex head ***** with free-floating washer that holds the Gen II door hinge cover to the car. The head fits well in a 5/16" socket and also quite well in an 8 mm socket, so I don't know if it's metric or SAE. The threaded length is about 1" and it's got a tapered...

    Windshield Wipers Sword-fight

    Good thinking. But I'm using the correct size of wiper blades.

    Windshield Wipers Sword-fight

    I don't intend to use a passenger side motor on the driver's side. I merely connected one there to gauge its behavior and that of the other passenger side motor without the factory driver's side motor in the circuit, in an effort to rule out fault lying with the factory driver's side motor. I...

    Windshield Wipers Sword-fight

    Good question, and I addressed that yesterday with another test. I did roughly what you suggested, using both the old and new passenger side motors in place of the driver's side motor. And regardless of the setup, the motor on the passenger side still stuttered at, apparently, the same spots as...

    Windshield Wipers Sword-fight

    UPDATE: After service manual testing procedures (as outlined above), I concluded (apparently falsely) that the passenger side motor needed replacement. I purchased a new passenger side wiper motor and installed it. Sadly, I'm still getting interference between the wiper arms (I have adjusted...

    Windshield Wipers Sword-fight

    UPDATE: Over the weekend I disassembled the wiper system again and conducted the tests outlined in the service manual to evaluate the motors and the switch, all independently. I did not have and still do not have any suspicion that the wiring is at fault, and as that testing procedure involved...

    Gen II OEM Wheel Finishes

    I hadn't heard that. Interesting.

    Gen II OEM Wheel Finishes

    Looks definitively like the '96 and '97 wheels would never had had a Durabright finish, according to info on that thread. I'm guessing, then, that '96 and '97 GTS wheels were just polished and cleared. I read a while back, where I learned about the casting vs forging, that the '97 wheels polish...
