Hey guys My name is Niko. I live in the Weirdest place on earth outside of the Bermuda Triangle....Georgia.
I have a original 88 XR it was my fathers and he passed it to me before he passed. Everything is good visually but, i am having a real problem with the small electrical issues. warning lights wont display, tach and fuel level gauges are down, powerdoor locks aren't working and foglights aren't working.
funny thing is they worked after i restored the car to running condition. one day they all just....stopped. if anyone can help me i would greatly appreciate it!

CHEERS!!!!!!!!! :cheers

Welcome Niko ! :cheers

I don't have a 100% answer for your electrical problems, but if you don't already have the XR4Ti EVTM Electronic & Vacuum troubleshooting manual I would be happy to send it to you via email. Just send me an email at merkurdriver@gmail.com

Hi Niko,

I have good news and bad news for you. The good news is he gave you his beloved XR, the bad news is he infected you with Merkuritis. It's a permanent affliction that you'll never be rid of, even years after you don't have the XR, it's pleasures will still haunt you.

Ok, on to the good stuff. Email me you name, address and phone #. I'll sign you up for a membership that'll enable you to post images directly in your posts and I'll email you a bunch of valuable info. To help you get info and help from other members, it's important for them to know a little about you. Please, go to your "Profile" and tell us more about yourself and your XR.

Next item - Go to the XR forum and post you questions there. You'll get more and better suggestions there than is this "Intro" forum. The "Search" feature will enable you to search initial search functions.

Please ask questions and offer comments and suggestions.

Sincerely
Bob Weir
Membership Coordinator

PS My condolences on your father's passing.

Ed,
Flattery might get you a chocolate chip cookie, but not a free 1 yr membership.

Thanks
Bob

Sorry Ed, I don't do rasins, but if you're really nice to me, I might bring you some sugar cookies.

We're going to DC later this month for baby shower, maybe we can see you on the return trip.

PS Always amazes me that people don't take me up on the FREE 1 yr membership offer. I'll have to get "management" to allow me to "sweeten" the offer.
