Re: Car will not shut off...HELP!!!

Do the accessories (i. e. blower motor, wipers, turn signals, etc) continue to work with the key turned off? Any aftermarket stuff i. e. radio, amplifier, remote start installed? If so, my money's on that (provided the ignition switch is ok.) As for the overheating, under what conditions does it get...

Re: Radiator fan works opposite of what its supposed to

Does the fan run if you connect the two wires in the radiator temp sensor harness together? If not, you've got a bad temp sensor.

Re: Exhaust intermediate pipe

So how much "too long" is the 46691? Maybe eliminate the cat?

Re: ISO Radio/Cassette Player

I put a factory AM/FM cassette radio out of a '96 corolla in my '87 wagon (the good car.) Strictly plug 'n play- no needed mods to support brackets or wiring harness. Hope this helps.

Re: The beater's new shoes

Yeah, I call that "snow drags." It's great pulling up next to some performance car (or even 4WD truck) at a light, selecting EL and blowing them away when the light turns green. Only time our cars can be even remotely "fast." BTY, I've been running 185/60 14" Michelin X-ICEs on my beater in the wint...

Re: 85 For parts in yard

Far as I know, all DX's have the mist feature, and all SR5's have the intermittent (except of course for the elusive adjustable intermittent/cruise control- which I've never encountered.) Also, I'm pretty sure the controls differ between 4 and 5 pin wiper motors.

Re: Wiper blowing fuse

If the fuse in question also controls the rear wiper, check where the wiring harness passes from the main car body to the rear hatch- I've seen wires break there, and it's possible the insulation could rub thru- causing your short. Also be aware that the "park" wire for the motor sees 12v whenever t...
