  1. After a moderate time in storage, the 1970 Cadillac started well on her own battery. She was driven home, about ten miles - then it would not start as a result of a discharged battery. After a jump-start, a quick check showed that the wire between the alternator and the battery was right at 12-volts, rather than the expected 14 +/- volts which would have been typical. After checking wires and contacts, I removed the alternator and took it to the brand new Autozone store where they checked it and said that it was putting out over 14 volts. Since I plan to tour cross-country with this old girl

  3. Hi I'm fixing up a 67 Rivieria that has been sitting for the past 5-6 years and I'm some electrical problems with the instrument panels, courtesy light switch and the climate lights. I took the dash and instrument cluster off, replaced the headlamp switch and I'm able to see dim lights behind the speedometer. I also replaced the lamps, helped a little but far from decent lighting. There are no bulbs behind the the oil pressure, coolant temp etc, but a small rectangular board wrapped in wire...is this suppose to light up? The lights behind the heater control won't illuminate, and the courtesy
  4. Hello I have a 1989 Buick Reatta, I've been having a battery drain problem ever since I bought it but recently the drain grew so I put a kill switch in it. Now my car is fantastic.... Except for the past 3 days.... I'll be driving and all of a sudden EVERYTHING in my car shuts off, and then a few seconds later turns back on like all of my computers are restarting themselves, this will happen while I'm driving. But my computers don't seem to turn off because my mpg number doesn't reset or my trip number doesn't reset. It happens if I go over a small bump or so ermines I don't even need a bump.
  5. can someone identify the vehicle that would have used a trafficator manufactured by a company named limeta? i have looked everywhere without success. :confused:
  6. Hi, I have what seems like an open curcit in my Delta 88 whenever I allow it to sit a few days between starting the battery runs down. I do not know if there is a corrolation but my fuel sending unit and my clock also do not work. Last month while I was working on the clock I shorted out the fuse and during the time the fuse was out the battery held its charge. Any assistance on how I can find the problem? Thanks
  7. Hello I'm 19 years old and I just bought my first car, a 1989 Buick reatta! I'm trying to fix some things on it and I do not know what I need to replace... The car exterior lights will not shut off. I even take the key out and the lights on the exterior are still on so I have to take out the fuze dealing with the lights. My dad said something about a left switch assembly but I can't find it anywhere on the Internet. What do I need to replace to fix the exterior lights? And the computer keeps popping up talking about electrical problems, I don't know if I need to reset the computer or how to fi
  8. Need help. I picked up a 1927 Chrysler all original down to the leather brakes and it ran perfect. I have never had a 6 volt system before let alone a positive ground system. With that said, I purchased a new battery and hooked the ground to the positive (poof smoke). Engine turns over just fine, I no longer have lights or spark. I have been unable to locate any type of fuse. I have installed a new started solenoid and a new coil, still nothing works except the starter. Has anyone done this before or do you have any suggestions.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-co
  9. Hi everybody, I am new to the forums and hopefully somebody can shed some light on my problems with my Reatta, which I LOVE by the way. My speedometer and most of my touch screen, just do not work most of the time. About 90% of the time, it just says "electrical problem" where my speed should be displayed. However even when the speedometer and the rest of my dashboard is out, my radio is still fully functional. I can not go to the "gages" "climate" or any other page, just my radio. But in the rare occasion that the dashboard works, everything works great! So anyway I hope somebody can help me,
  10. Help, the display dashboard/console blinks and returns with the 00 ERROR at first it would be there 5-15 seconds -- now if blacks out for 30 minutes multiple times during the day. Please help me what is causing this and what is the best options for a fix? Thanks
  11. Hi, I hope someone can help or give some ideas for me. I drive a 90 Reatta hand-me-down from my sister. Needless to say she didn't take all that good care of the car, but it still runs. However, in the last two months I've been driving it, occasionally it will not start. I know it's not the battery or its connections, because the radio plays and I get dash lights. Basically what happens is when I turn the key to 'on', dash lights and radio turn on, but when I turn it further to 'run/start', it goes dead. My dad discovered that if I wiggle the key in the ignition or adjust the wheel up or dow
