  1. My VIN file shows this VIN already in the file as a 1991 and not a 1990. My guess the title reads 1991. At least the pictures reflect all of the problems with the car and not just a photo from 25 feet away.
  2. Let's start with questions. Have the lights ever been on? Are the other lights on the dashboard on? The headlight switch is also a rheostat and turning it clockwise to the stop will make the dash board lights dimmer. Turning the switch counter clockwise will make the lights brighter and with a minor click on the counter clockwise turn will lock the lights in the brightest position.
  3. Super video and keep up displaying the TC in major events like Carlisle MOPAR. Congrats on the second place finish.
  4. Good job Reaper. My first concern starts with the subject and in 1989 they did not title any black TC's. The blue grease that Reaper spoke of used on the pull down mechanism was also used in the odometer and when it harden over time broke the gears in the odometer and it no longer works. There was a total of 7,300 TC made so you can see how many spare parts are available except when one finds it way to the junk pile. I would not buy one without seeing and driving the car as there can be a lot of hidden problems. Check every moving part such as power seats, antenna, pull down, windows, door locks and so on. Mileage is a big consideration for pricing and when the mileage is lower the interior leather is probably in better condition. Good luck. They are a lot of fun driving.
  5. I know of a yellow 1989 SOHC that is for sale. Where do you live MAC48? 53K miles. I was supposed to go look at it 8 days ago but a 100% artery blockage interfered with my visit and I had to spend a couple of days in ICU following surgery.
  6. If you switch the ignition ON-OFF 50 times it will clear the fault codes. Another way to clear the codes is to disconnect the battery for 10 minutes. See URL http://minimopar.net/fault/ this is a great website on faults but not as good as Hemi and Reaper.
  7. You are correct the pegs are not adjustable. The pull down mechanism in the tonneau well can be adjusted a small amount. There are 5 bolts, 2 on each end and 1 in the middle. It will slide up and down. One typical problem is that the soft top when not used much needs to be stretched back out. Also attach the pegs first and then the 'J' hooks. You can also get a little more play by screwing the 'J' hooks but this can allow rain to enter the car.
  8. Here are 2 good videos on repairing the gears in the odometer. I suggest watching both but the first one is better. Repairing the Odometer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7OyjTXExB4k https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q3Jq1YOr2zY
  9. And you think your porthole has a problem! This one is so ugly it is pretty with all the colors.
  10. This URL did not work for me. Said there were no results.
  11. The socket and ratchet are for working the pull down thru the trunk.
  12. Your TC has a built in fault testing system. If you go to the following URL it will explain how to use the system and get the fault codes your TC has. http://minimopar.net/fault/index.html If you have a service manual there is a brief table of the codes on pages 14-24 and 14-25 but the URL is far superior.
