    MSDesign - Boxer has two Alternators and two lights. Sounds like one is not working.

    As the song goes "...it's only just begin..." Just wait to see what else needs to be replaced and/or repaired on a 20 year old car that hasn't been driven much ! I'm still praying for you.

    Dropped of the boxer at Wide World of cars this morning...amp gauge says it is charging...probably a minor offense...Having a NY. inspection and a couple of other incidentals such as air horn pump and wiper blades...This car is so impressively clean that I am prepared to put bucks into bringing it up to concours level.@ 30,000 was spent in the last 5 years by 2 previous collector owners keeping it in total correct preservation...

    Doesn't your car have less than 2k miles on it ? Does it make you wonder why a car needed $30k worth of work in five years with that low of mileage ?
