I was out cruising around in my '58 Super and everything was just fine. Got home, backed it into the garage and closed shop. The next day I needed to move it and when I tried to start it it fired up then began to idle rough and finally died. Next try nothing. Just turned over and over. Next day I tried it again and same result, except it would not run at all, just tried for a few seconds and died once. Then nothing. Sprayed starting fluid into the carb and tried again, but no response when I tried to start it again. Checked spark at coil output, fair. Checked for spark at plugs, one short spark upon turning over, then nothing. So, replaced Coil, points and condenser. Good spark to distributor, and good spark to plugs. But she still won't start. Just turns over and acts like there is no spark to the plugs, but there is. Tried starting fluid again, still nothing. Anyone out there have any suggestions? I can't figure out what to test/check/replace next. Help!
I have a 1988 Reatta. New battery, new plugs, new sensors, lots of work on the car. For months, the car has been draining the battery. I replaced it again and thought all was well. Then I noticed that the courtesy light is going on and off all night long. Sometimes, when I close the door, the light just stays on. I restart the car, turn on the lights and turn it off. Then the light stays off. Sometimes it is off when I close the door, but then rolls through turning on and off all night long. Battery will be dead or nearly dead in the morning:mad:. What is going on?:confused:
