I have a 1994 honda accord. Every thing worked
when I got the car. Then the blinkers went out.
Then it sat for 3 or so years, I put $10 of gas in it
and ig started right up. The altenator seized up of
course so I replaced it. Now the headlights only
work on the high beams and the whole dash went
out. And to top it off I have a parasitic draw, dong
know what to do. I'm not sure what type of accord
it is either.
At this point, that $10 of gas might be what the car's worth. When a vehicle is left for three years unrun, corrosion builds up in electrical systems, mechanical systems and fuel lines. In perfect shape with decent tires, the car's probably not worth $1,000. If you want to put money into this car just for your own automotive education, maybe you could justify a small expense, but beyond that, call a salvage yard to tow the car away.
It was meant to a project car and it would be hard to get rid of I love it to much. Would it be easier to just redo the whole electrical system myself?
