      Is the cigar lighter in the ash-tray? If it is in the ash-tray or close to the ash-tray, remove ash-tray, see if you can get your hand in there to feel it? If not, I'd probably have to remove lower part of dash, then see if I could reach it.

      Did you check the cigar fuse? Any voltage at the fuse circuit? Is the cigar heater element ok, you can replace that part separately from the socket.

      I haven't worked on this model year in a long time. Your local auto store should sell an auxiliary power supply socket. You just wire it up, voltage and ground, fused circuit. That might be faster than taking your dash apart?

    The plastic lens in my bumper is a bit broken, how much is it to replace it?
    It's the thin bottom lens that is actually in the bumper. Is there anyway to buy a replacement part at an auto store and put it in myself?

      Is this the reflector mounted in the bumper? If yes, these are available in the parts aftermarket from around $20.00 each - many different sources; www.partsgeek.com, www.rockauto.com, www.discountautoparts.com, www.autopartswarehouse.com, www.jcwhitney.com - to list only a few possibilities.

    The radio display shuts off after dark
    The car has 128,000 mile. The radio is the stock radio. When the lights come on automatically after dusk or if they're turned on manually the radio display shuts off but the radio continues to play. The radio works fine during the day.

      i tried finding the wire number to check for power to the night illumination power wire and i got an fbi copy right fine deal that locked my computer for a while but i would recomend finding what wire goes to the light and checking for power there before you replace the radio because i am pretty sure you cant replace the bulb.

    Headlights wont turn off.
    My headlights will not turn off after I turn off the car. Even after several minutes the headlight stay on after the car is off. Only way I am able to turn them off is to pull out the fuses.

      Headlight switch directs current to the headlights and running lights to turn them on or off
      When not replaced, headlights will run continually or not function. Check it and replace as necessary.

      The Hi speed fan is controlled by the High speed blower relay. If you didn't change it yet, replace it as necessary.

      Note: the blower motor resistor controlled the other three speeds.

      Not sure the location, but see this site and compare the blower motor relay from the picture with the original one.

      The vehicle would have to be inspected in person - at a local, trusted auto body repair shop in your area. There is no way for anyone other than that person to know the cost or provide you with an accurate estimate.
      Besides, there may be damage below just the parts visible from the outside of the vehicle - also requiring a hands-on and detailed inspection.

      I changed the fuel pump so much that I just cut a hole over the fuel pump so I can just reach in and change it. doing it the other way is a pain. My friend did it and he said its a pain.
