    Another new Albertan

    Greetings CelicaSupra aficionados! Iím fairly new to the supra world, having just bought my first one in the last week. Got a 1985 Mk2 P-type with the 5mge and converted from the auto to 5 speed. Super Deep Red with black interior, apparently a rare colour combo for this year?
    The car currently doesnít run and has some electrical gremlins that Iím slowly hunting down. Thought Iíd join on in case I end up at some tough road blocks along the way. While I do have lots of mechanical experience on older Dodge trucks (currently daily a 94 Dodge Dakota 4x4 with a 5.9 360 I swapped in this spring), Iíve found the mechanical design of this car to be more than just a walk in the park! But I look forward to the potential challenges that I may encounter! And I hope the forum and itís experts will be of great help as I tackle this project in hopes of making it a summer cruiser!

    Welcome!! Search and search!!

    I would also recommend the EWD (Electrical wiring Diagram) manual for the '85 as well...and the owners manual list all the fuses and relays as well...

    Welcome. I thought we had determined that the only black seats came in the 83 model year, otherwise would have been grey to go with the black trim. Can someone confirm? All of the 85s I have seen in SDR have either black vinyl interiors with grey seats, or few have had a kind of burgundy colored interior. Lots of people would have preferred black over grey and some people ordered new leather seat covers from Northwest Auto Leather in Canada where black was probably the #1 choice.

    I’ve done some testing with what I’ve got in regards to the lighting situation. The headlight retainer relay isn’t in the car at the moment due to the common corrosion issue. Thru jumping some pins on the retainer connector I’ve managed to get all the marker lights, tail lights, and instrument cluster lights to operate with the combo switch, but I have no headlights or fog lights. The headlights pop up properly at least. And the dome light doesn’t operate with the doors, only lighting when switched to ON.
    As far as the engine goes, it’s getting spark and the fuel pump was replaced last fall. So I’ll be in the process of seeing if the pump is powering as supposed to and if the injectors are pulsing.
