name the lights, inside and outside that are dead.
lots of lights. there are, just park alone is 20 +
the radio is dead? all functions, A/M FM, CD , or ?
that is a blown fuse.
fuses must be tested, because:
1: fuses that look bad are.
2: fuses that look good can in fact be bad, (hair line cracks)
some radios, have their own fuses. very common if radio is not stock.
A smog check/diagnostic at a reputable shop should reveal any catalytic converter problems. As far as random cylinder firing, there are several things which might present problems. I will list a few for you to consider:
1. Engines with higher mileage often have carbon deposits built up on the piston,valves, cylinder head,etc. When hot from running, these deposits can result in unexpected detonations of combustion chamber.
2. Condition of spark plug wires: old wires may "leak" meaning allowing current through the insulator. Also, sometimes wires run parallel to each other for a distance can create inductive firing out of order.
3. Spark plugs with deposits can cause detonation out of sequence.
4. Valve lash out of specification or worn cam can allow hot gases to detonate chambers. Sticky valves/guides may not be seating (closing) properly.
This is for anyone with this problem, I had the SAME issue and NO one
had the right answer on here, if they best you can do is "this must be a
wiring isssue" your an IDIOT and should go back to facebooking. IF you
have checked your fuses and that is not the issue, it is the cigerette
lighter, there are fuses behind here that have gone out and is not
completing the circuit for the radio, the lighter, the clock or the
automatic windows. I found a 5 minute fix and it works on you tube!
THANK you for people that know what they are talking about out
