Vehicle was sold by Ben and Lesley Taylor (of Grapevine, Texas) to David Thompson for $2,800. Condition: "as is".
Replaced battery, Walmart.
On Monday 2020-10-26 I blew out the front drivers-side tire on a pothole on Fish Hatchery road. I was driving to the Gym very early, between 4 and 5. I put on the spare tire and limped back home.
On Saturday 2020-11-01 I purchased a new tire. The pictures above helped me purchase the new tire. I purchased one General Altimax RT43 195/65R15 91 H Tire from Walmart for $85.99.
The common denominator is the brake switch, which we investigated. Eventually we found that the 20 A "stop" fuse which fuses the brake lights was being burnt out every time the brake was depressed.
Some splicing work for the brake light in the roof of the trunk was found to be shorting out. After fixing this problem, the car seems to work fine. However cruse control is still broken.
In the process of fixing this problem David reset the car computer by disconnecting the battery for several seconds. We also discovered that the rear passenger-side brake light was broken, which could be coincidental. The brake light was replaced the next day, working fine. Although we could not measure any problems with the brake switch, Blaise is still suspicious and would like to see that switch replaced.
