Instramentation panel out. Easy fix.
AC weak (easy fix).
Velcro boot pads worn out.
Fuel sensor bad.
Radio volume bad.
I love this car so far. Was worried at first, just bought it as a second beater.
The dash panel is a 99 dollar fix if you check on Ebay. If you're are at all handy, it's even easier to fix. Four screws and the dash cowl comes out, four more screws and the instrument panel comes off. A few big resistors on the back of the instrument panel eventually get cold solder joints and break after time. Simply hit those points with a soldering iron and every thing will work again.
I also replaced the boot velcro attached to the body for 75 cents at Total Crafts. The AC charge was 15.00 Advanced Autoparts.
Nice ride so far, but with all American cars, the more features you have, the handier you need to be after the car hits 75K.
The 20amp ignition fuse sounds like it could be related to the instument panel as well. I would check that first.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
