- 1981 Beige/bronze
Has anyone experienced this one? The wife and I were buzzing around on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, and we were bragging about how well the 81 was running. Stopped for petro and old girl would not start. Lights light up on dash -- but nothing happened. After that, we could hear a strange clicking noise coming from the steering column, sounded like the turn signal noise. Tried to start her again,,, nothing. Decided to remove battery cable so not to run down the battery. Then, I reconnected the cable and she STARTED. She has been starting the following 4 days after that. One of those things that make you go HHUUMMM, or just a dirty contact??
