Who here has a Vibe factory service manual?

Postby joatmon » Wed May 23, 2018 1:10 pm

As these out of production cars age, we've shifted here to pretty much maintenance and repair topics. Sometimes, people ask new questions that can be answered by a quick look in the factory service manual. Threads like viewtopic.php?f=11&t=46567 go unanswered because we don't know who might have an 09-10 set to do a simple lookup to find out where one particular relay is.

I bought the 03 factory service manual, the actual Helm Inc. two book set for 2003 Vibe. Somehow I lost Volume two, which had most of the wiring diagrams. Volume 1 does cover HVAC, Steering, Suspension, Driveline/Axle, Brakes, and Engine (both 1ZZ and 2ZZ) Between that and the 03 matrix pdfs, I can cover a lot of the first gens, but there are holes, such as the wiring for the 05-08 cluster wiring

Some things changed between 03-04 and 05-08, and most changed between 03-08 and 09-10. I just don't have the info to answer some of these questions, and I know that some of you do. If you do own an official set of factory service manuals for the Vibe, and are willing to help, please post what you have, and when the questions we need answered come up, then we know who to IM to ask.

Thanks in advance

2009-10 here. Not impressed with this set at all. Lots of errors. Apparently they forgot to replace some of the first gen information and it gets confusing when you go to a particular topic only to find out "it doesn't look like that" or "I don't have a thingamagig like that".

I have a GM set for 2006 (could never find one for 2005)

I know it is only a partial match to your set 2007 v 2003, but there was a standalone volume 2 on e-bay
https://www.ebay.com/itm/2007-PONTIAC-V ... SwrFtaDHlR

If anyone was looking for a GM Vibe Manual, the GM manual numbers are:
GMP/xx-S-1 and GMP/xx-S-2 covers S-Platform Vibe and Vibe GT
where the xx is the model year number ie 03, 04, 05 etc GM originally asked 135.00 a copy

Good news; used manual sets are coming down in price. The bad news; they are getting harder to find.

Or, best of all, the manuals you get are for a G8 and not a Vibe :lol:!

Does the 09 manual show the location of the ignition relay?
