Ok here i have some nasty problems. For starters, my headlights shorted out on me 2 times on the way home tonght and again when i pulled up to my house, all 4 of em. if i get out and slap the fusebox, they come on. drive a bit, they die, repeat. WTMF!!!

The glovebox floods nicely when it rains, shouldnt i worry about the computer getting soaked?

The damn kidney grill keeps fallin off, but no worries about that. My hood wouldnt stay shut to save my life, i damn near body slammed it, woudlnt click shut, but i think i fixed that. at least for now And the horn worked the day i bought it, but not since.

My turn signals are screwed up *see other post* the relay or something

and to top it all off, it almost caught on fire yesterday. I had the heater on *wasnt blowing heat really, somewhat while i was going* and smoke started commin outta the dash rather nastily. The engine itself caught on fire for the former owner

theres plenty more problems, i just cant think of them now.

if do a search for recall bullitens i believe there was one about the wiring to the heater controls/motor being the wrong gauge and overheating,and in some cases cathing fire,,do a search for "your cars year""your cars model" recalls

K im addin more problems, make this a diary. Well i duno if theyre new but theyre new discoveries of current problems.

this morning i had the worst morning ever with it. The headlights werent workin right like i said before, but when i put it into drive, the brights come on, but only sometimes WTF is up with that? and the headlights seemed to cut out more when going uphill. any ideas?

and with the heater catchin on fire... how can I fix this? also when it was on before, it didnt really blow unless im moving, what is up with this too?
