Yes, lighter on the pocket would be nice, I took a look at sbeans' car for sale thats basically exactly what I'm looking for. I have to wait a while tho, the "program" is doing good however. $700 in one month If I can get 24 months of good savings, a few cash influxes here and there, it will expeditite the new car fund. And if I can get $1200 clams for my Bonne, then all the better. So a some money spent on keeping it running better then new is OK by me.

OK..fixed. Changed the relay and everything works good now, both of the turn signals are faster and quieter. Cost me $3.27 for the relay and 15 mins to replace it. Cheapest repair I have done on this car to date

Now its goes in for ignition repairs

Did you try replacing both the turn signal bulb and the side marker lamp bulb? You may be grounding out against something.

Both of the bulbs work, just not under the right conditions. I'm beyond frustrated right now...I'll wait and see what they find tomorrow. As for the dash light...I dunno, how many times can you replace a dash cluster.

Once the electrical systems start to go wonky, just throw up your arms and give up
