1987 325 Recently Purchased for $600
First off my uncle purchased this Black 1987 325 for $600. The body is in fairly straight shape with no major dings. The paint can be revived easily with some good detailing. I will post pictures shortly but that's not the important part.
My uncle, not being too bright, bought the car without even popping the hood. I was able to get the hood opened by using pliers on the cable.
Now the problems
1. The gauge cluster is lit up like a Christmas tree, and so is the center information display on the headliner
2. There is a violent vibration when accelerating, from the driveline
3. You have to tap the left headlight to turn it on.
4. Tachometer Light is out (When headlights are on) Speedometer Lights only
5. HVAC Lights are all out
I plan change all the fluids brake, oil+filter, tranny, clutch, coolant, etc. inspect and replace the brake pads and do all the basic maintainence at school.
How do turn off the diagnostic lights? How easy is it to come by parts for this vehicle? My location is close to San Francisco in the Bay Area. Does anyone know any reputable shops in this area?
