    BJ42 electrical gremlins - turn signals

    I've had this truck for a while now and something very weird is going on. Has been happening since I bought it off the previous owner. Some times (unrelated to weather, time of day, temperature or alignment of the moon) the turn signals and the hazards stop working. I can try either one...

    Intermittent sunroof movement

    I've searched and haven't found much on this topic. Lots of threads about cleaning the sunroof drains which is what I have also done but I have a problem with actuating the sunroof open & close. If completely closed, I need to bump the manual turn screw a turn to get the motion going. Once I...

    Odd intermittent clicking sound at start up

    Here's the situation: only does it when it's cold/er, it's not the cat shields, it sounds like a rotational clicking that speeds up when I'm driving. Eventually it goes away after the car is fully warmed up. I checked the fan and it's not making contact with anything. Could it be the starter...
