No dash instruments, no lights on, Nada, nothing. I'd just been driving the car two days before and all was good. With a key I was able to get into the trunk, and the battery is fine. Reading another post on this site, I've suspect that it could be a relay that's failed. I've ordered a (digital) work shop manual in order to figure this out.
A few days before (and one or two times in the past) when I started the car, it had a "transmission" light come on, on the left side of the instrument panel, and the car would going what seemed like a "safe mode".
Simply turning the ignition off, waiting a bit and re-keying the ignition and this "safe mode" and trans idiot light would have gone away, and all was fine. This happened about 3 times in 6-8 months.
When I original got the car (8K ago) it was having idling issues that seemed to have been solved by running Marvel mystery oil in the fuel. After about 6 tanks of gas all idling issues were gone, AND was getting 27 MPG on the highway.
At the moment (and until I get a manual for it) it's like a stone, There is no (absolutely zero) acknowledgement of electricity through the car, so it has to be a primary circuit, and when I read the posting (and answer to it) about the possibility of it being a relay, I've decided that when the manual comes, that's going to be my starting point.
ANY and all help would be greatly appreciated.
have the same problem?
