    Sorry gents, I was under the impression these cars were Toyotas?

    EVERYTHING on Dragon works

    I was concerned this morning when I took Dragon to the dealer to have its wheel bearings adjusted and anti-roll bar bushes replaced, the A/C didn't work. Seems it was just too cold, though (ironically, seeing as a heat pump should work even more effectively as the environmental temperature falls!) as when I drove home, it was working like nothing happened.

    Fuel gauge is flaky though, when I have half a tank it bounces up and down between 6 and 2 bars, then starts again at 6 when I stop.

    Power antenna, cruise control, all lights, heater, sunroof, windows, everything electrical and mechanical just WORK heck, I even wired in the powered upright for my mk3 driver's seat (lumbar and side bolster adjustments) and they work great!

    This is what I have a Toyota for!

    Rob,that's amazing!!!!!!!!!!!
    There must be 30 electrical
    systems on our cars. probably a lot more.
    The list would be HUGE.
    Count the relays and circuit breakers.Things that move or turn on and go off,electrically.

    There a few systems that fail more often.
    I'm happy that most of the electrically-driven systems still work or ones that I repaired in the last decade.
    Replaced the stock radio.Replaced the main power switch for the CC.
    When my power antenna broke,I didn't fix that!
    I disabled the dome/interior light when I added an Auto Loc anti-theft device. It was a GOOD trade off because I push a button on my key fob to unlock the power door locks AND disable the no-start feature. The former owner wore through the paint below the drivers door with his thumb.
    On my '84 you need to hold the door handle open to lock it. Not any more.
    I can live without A/C in Seattle.
    Congrats to the owners that can say EVERYTHING works!
    Rob and Greg are the only ones,so far.

    Once my car is completely settled in my hands I think I'll be able to say everything works, Thanks for that little wiper tip Dave! I'll have to build some Custom Ac for the 2j but beyond that my car is good, along with a shell to fix all the small bits pretty fast. :-) glad we still have some solid owners lurking around

    I stand corrected...I have one light bulb that needs replacing - driver`s side backup light. Call me lazy or crazy, but I never replaced it. It`s been like that since I bought the car 15 years ago (for parts). I`ve been super lucky with this ride (knock on wood), haven`t actually had to do anything to it other than upgrade.

    I'm gonna go with 'lazy'

    Srsly, 15 years?! Over here, any non-working exterior lights are enough to fail the yearly inspection! My Subaru was failed for one of the license-plate lights being temperamental (they must've slammed the hatch and it started working again, cos they passed it afterwards).

    True that Rob, but I`m also kinda superstitious. Since I haven`t fixed the ONLY thing that ever needed fixing, my todo list is very short. Instead I use that time to develop parts. Our inspection isn`t minutely detailed and fortunately I`ll never need another now that it is classified an antique vehicle.

    David, go find a 4th to 5th gen celica at a junkyard and grab the domelight assy out of it and swap it in. Bolts up and uses the same connector, but instead of the slider switch that breaks, it uses a pivot and a ball bearing to make contact. I have been running one for about 12 years now, and it has yet to fail.

    If it doesn't work, it's probably my fault.

    Because you broke it? Yes, I did break it! (Dome light)

    Naw,lazy and "I ain't got to that issue,yet" is better.
    It's still broken,is one reason for not tackling an issue.
    Lately, my excuse is TOO COLD to work on my car.
    Frozen fingers just do not work so well, on this old guy.
    "Does it run and drive?"
    Yeah.
    "Is it legal?"
    Mostly.
    "What's broken?"
    A shit-ton.
    Mostly electrical.
    42 kilograms of copper wires and some actually make connections!
    I'll add more. Don't call me David.
