allready got scanned, they said they need to scan when car has problem. Since car is running again, they can't tell me squat. It is a time bomb however for the next time I get stranded in rush hour traffic and get stuck with another tow.

Do your power windows and locks still work when it doesn't start?

Since it'* chiming I'd check all the battery connections.

Is it turning over but not firing up?

Got your problem solved I think....

Pull the carpet back that is on the floor on drivers side. Pull wiring bundle out of floor and look for this connector...


Check for corrosion and clean this buss bar.



My 95 showed the same symptoms as yours did. Windows, locks and power seat would not work. Including the fuel pump. All those tie into this common ground that you see in the pictures.

Locked for Administrative purposes due to the username and implications related to it.

Please don't PM questions to me until this is sorted out. (no spankings for those that have already PM'd)

False alarm, everythings fine. Worth the check though. Carry on as if we DIDN'T think this poor schmuck was eric95se.
