Re: Answer this - dash out, car won't start

Is your car an xr7? If so did you remove the tach as the ignition switch feeds the tach in series then to the ignition coil.

The trunk lid has 2 small cuts in the top of the lid. It could be welded and then filed down. There was no evidence of rust or rot in the edges.

Only the right side had the spindle, disc and caliper. The Bendix booster was still in the car.
