  1. Resolved issue. When problem first appeared I pulled the fuse inside the car. This killed power to the radio, but did not fix issue. I RTFM and saw that there is a second fuse (in the engine compartment #23) that is also fro the radio. Pulled and replaced it. Lo and behold problem went away
  2. While attempting to determine the caue of poor AM reception (Jiggle antenna, check for bad ground, etc) the radio just 'stopped' every light on the radio display is lit, something like CFPEI FF FFFF reading left to right appears in the radio display. None l of the functions (tape cd etc) function, it appears as if the radio is 'locked' Antenna will not go up, tape will not eject, appears to have no power. Pulled and Checked fuse. it's ok. I figure it can't be power, otherwise the display would not show anything (As it did when I pulled the fuse) . I am begining to think it may have some
  3. While attempting to determine the caue of poor AM reception (Jiggle antenna, check for bad ground, etc) the radio just 'stopped' every light on the radio display is lit, something like FF FFFF ... some other stuff, and on the right side all of the functions (tape cd etc) Antenna will not go up, tape will not eject, appears to have no power. Checked fuse. it's ok. I figure it can't be power, otherwise the display would not show anything (As it did when I pulled the fuse) All feedback appreciated
  4. Re the Radio. I don't listen to the Phillies (to depressing) but I do listen to 1210 in Phila. Same problem though. AM is TERRIBLE, some stations come in ok, but 1210 770 both strong stations sound like signals from Mars. On my other cars not a problem. FM is fine BTW the stations that do come in are generally weaker stations (Local bucks county stations). I have checked antenna and for groud problems, found nothing
  5. I am leaning towards a missing body plug as the culprit. However I have gotten 2 answers when I inquired about such. The dealer tells me taht there is no missing plug, they want to take out the carpet, backseat, and charge about $400.00 to diagnose the problem, Then perhaps it mau have to go to the body shop. Local mechanic who replaced the tranny mount tells me that the plug undder the right front seat is missing. JC Witney sells an assortment of plugs (120) for about $10.00. Is anyone aware of a 'PLUG MAP' or some such thing. BTW it rained really hard the past several days (Driving rain)
  6. Thanks, My first thoughts were something like that (leak around door), however when I did not see/feel any water around door area I dismiised it. Is the water coming in at the door seals or thru the side panel. If thru the panel is that not a sign of a bigger problem. Perhaps I just do not understand what is happening, also is the VAPOR barrier just a sheet of plastic, or is this a dealer item
  7. Hi; I had/have a similar problem( Rear dirvers side fllor board wet). Checked for missing plugs, none found. area of wetness appears to be in center of passengers side rear floor, noting on seat, or doordoes not go int front. very puzzling
  8. When staring car today, all seemed well, I noticed the WW's seemd a bit slugish, but thought nothing of it. After driving about 5 mi or so noticed that the radio cut out (But stayed on) when Turn Signals went on, not a good sign. On way home things only got worde. Finally elec power was down to 0. Got car hoe, but it is totally dead. Last mod was to have CC display fixed, Seemed to reinstall ok. It would appear the the alternator may be at fault, dealer cannnot look at it for a couple of days. Currently am charging battery, See if it holds

  11. I just reinstalled my CC after having it repaired (bulbs) . All appeard to go well. However when I took the car out I noticed that I get no cold air .

  15. The other day I noticed a 'shutter/rumblig' at about 70Mph, I powered thru it and at 75-80 it disappeared. Very slight but noticeable. Car gets appox 25MPG on long trips, runing at 70-80 most of the time. Other than above car performs great All comments appreciated
