I just got home from a drive to a cruise nite 35 miles away. I was afraid I
wasn't going to make it home. Several problems cropped up, maybe all
unrelated but who knows.
For starters, the car began running rough, like it was dropping cylinders, and
would die at intersections. The car does have a Pertronix installed, if this
makes any difference. It ran fine the last time I drove it a week or so ago.
The dash lights would not work, then they began glowing faintly for a brief
moment, then they went out again, so I turned the switch off.
When I finally got home and turned the ignition switch off, the car kept
running no matter what I did with the key position. I kept turning it off and
back on, and it finally killed the ignition.
I also noticed hitting the brake pedal would cause the front parking lights to
come on. I know the front housings are properly grounded because I had
problems before and ran jumper wires from the housings to ground.
Does anyone have any suggestions where to start to possibly help save some
