Backstory: It's below freezing here (Michigan) and I washed my TB last weekend, interior lights worked fine prior to washing, and I don't remember wether they worked immediately after or not, all I remember is they didn't work when I...

    Hello all I'm new to the forum, and doing research for a buddy of mine who has no Internet access. I've searched your forums for the answer, and while I've learned a few things, I've not found anything conclusive. My buddy's front windshield washer will intermittently not pump. He swapped it...

  12. Everything In the Rear Hatch

    General
    A couple months ago, my rear hatch wouldn't open. I was about to take it to my friend's body shop, as I was really close, but at the next stop -- it worked. After talking to him about it, he told me that it had to be the locks, as they were electrical, as the linkage was manual. I really...

  16. Where does this wire go?

    General
    This red wire: This has probably been disconnected for 2 months now without a problem until today when the battery ran out of charge. Got it started and took it to autozone and they said the diode was bad on the alternator. Would this be related? Thanks CC
  17. Parasitic Battery Drain

    OEM Issues
    This is my first forum post, and I am about as good with computers as I am with this car. Bear with me. The battery was running down over night. Removing the radio fuse (a 15 amp fuse in the rear fuse box) after the car has sat for an hour results in a 3.2 amp drop. This is not the whole...
