  1. Awwwwww - it's been pulled! Maybe he decided to go forward with the hot rod plan??

    Overheating?

    I'm bumping this because my car has the same "heat" problem - how does one revise the fan settings??
  3. J_Carter - check your private messages. EDBSO - I'm not married to him but I do live with him!
  4. How much is that convertible Jag in the background selling for?
  5. The previous owner of my Reatta told me that he and his wife took turns driving from FL to AZ. The one not driving slept in the back by putting the "trap door" down and sleeping with their body mostly in the trunk and a pillow on door. He was not 6 ft., but he was about my height - 5'9", so I know it's been done......
  6. I noticed it had pulled as well and was wondering why. What a great deal it would have been, despite the repaint, to have a '91 convertible with 30,900 miles on it for less than $15,000!
  7. I noticed that no one has bid on this car yet - the price "seems" reasonable, but I am in no way an expert on '42's. Is there something I'm missing as to why no one has bid? Thanks!
  8. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">Lets assume everything above works except the front. that 12v then goes to P101 then to C102 then splice S135 and then on to the left (S130) and right front (S129) Since both the left and right front is out ... then you have a bad connection, bad splice, or damaged wire. </div></div> Thanks Barney! Yes, all lights work except the left and right front. Now I'm off to find out if it's the connection, splice or wire..... Best place to look??
  9. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">What year is your car..... see other post where owner did not have tail lamps. </div></div> Mine is an '89. What is the title for the other post? I can't locate it.
  10. Hello! I did a search and couldn't find exactly what I was looking for, so I thought I'd throw this out to you all - my parking lights do not work. Bought new bulbs, and the fuse is good. The headlights work, the fog lights work, the turn signals work, etc. and so forth. I did find something about "Relay F" on the passenger side being the parking light relay - does this only control the parking lights? Is there anything else I can check? Any and all advice is welcome. Oh, and if it makes any difference, the back lights DO come on.... Thanks much!
  11. Delores, My $.02 - if you love it, keep it and fix the things you want. If you don't love it, don't bother and sell it as is. It's almost never TOO much if you love the car...

    Volts?

    It does start and run fine, but I wondered if there was an alternator problem lurking in my future, or some other item... I couldn't figure out why the difference in readings in the 2 cars.

    Volts?

    Hi All! I have what I believe is a fairly simple question - what is the "normal" reading for Volts on the gage screen? Mine is always around 12.9 to 13.2, my boyfriend's Reatta generally has 14.1 so my numbers seem low. Both cars are '89, BTW. Thanks in advance for your help!
  14. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">The switch bank is going bad. You need to repair or replace the pod. There are contacts in the switch that wear out or bend out of shape. </div></div> I have this problem on my '89 as well, but I don't understand this solution. Where is the 'switch bank'? What is the 'pod'? Could you direct me to the section of the service manual I'd need to look at to get up to speed? Thanks!!
  15. Thanks much! Steering column has been installed and the car started like a charm. Tags have been bought, so she's back on the road again.
  16. Looks like this one is back on the Ebay auction block under a new Seller - item #4574821279. Not advertised as a Select 60 vehicle this time... interesting... (They could have at least used different pictures!) Bidding starts at $4775 and it has a SALVAGE TITLE??
  17. I'm the new owner of this absolutely lovely car - what a find! I could not be more pleased. Yes, I've ordered the column (thanks Jim!) and hopefully will be driving very soon.
