Vehicle starts no issue - new alternator and battery but the blower motor, radio, and cig lighter, front head lights and tachometer does not work. If you hold the bright lights they work and blinkers also work. Any suggestions on cause and fix?

Seems you have an electrical/wiring problem. Maybe a fuse is blown, but why did they trip? These issues are not easy to diagnose. I wouldn't purchase the vehicle until the owner or dealership corrected the issue.


your looking at a 13 year old car ,no mention of miles my thought is it's worn out,look at something newer.ot6her wise ie's a money pit. aaacar


Fuse left knee fuse box ck it.ones the lid
