Can't find suitable newsgroup for old car info. I just bought an '89
Plymouth Sundance which included a very sketchy 'owner's manual'
(booklet) that doesn't, for example, ID the function of the button
*below* the emergency flasher tab or whether/how the backseats fold
down. In fact, much of the material is subtitled "if so equipped". Any
newsgroup or online sorrce for fairly basic info? I'm not looking to
replace the transmission -- just to find out what all the buttons
<< I just bought an '89 Plymouth Sundance >>
Deepest sympathies. It should have been a gift, not a purchase. Try a Google
search for auto repair manuals and check out possibilities at your library for
help. Hopefully this a hobby and not transportation, Good luck.
Get a Hynes or Chilton's manual from the library or online (ebay or Amazon)
for that particular year (try to find an older one as they seem to group
older years and models for newer editions).
You can also try:
Umm that is not an OLD car. A 1968 Impala is an OLD car. And another
thing... you actually PAID money for a Plymouth Sundance?? I must be
missing somthing here, lol.
That thing under the flasher button is a light that is supposed to
light up the ignition area when you first get in the car (so you can
see where your keys go after 5 or 6 beers). I don't think the seats
fold down in those either.
What engine is in it? Hopefully you got the 4 cylinder. The V6's in
those cars were less than wonderful. Don't get me wrong, ALL Chrysler
products are crap in my book, but that's just my opinion from the few
I've had the misfortune of owning. lol
If it's the same as my Dodge Lancer (old, larger version of the same
style), that is the entry illumination light for the ignition switch.
I didn't think that had them on the Sundance/Shadow models only higher
end models like mine(?) and the New Yorker, etc.
Again, mine has 2 flat plastic latch handles on the top edge of the
rear seat. They hinge up from the rear.
That's because owner's manuals are usually for a whole line of cars,
each which may have different options. It'd be pretty expensive to
make a different owner's manual just because a model has an AM/FM
casset radio and others only and AM/FM or one is equiped with a rear
window wiper and others not?
Will check. The Owner's Booklet has 3 pages of text and illustration
on seat belts, and a whole lotta "if so equipped" text. Ah hah!
"Driver's Performance Seat" text includes "if so equipped," but just
below is "Folding Rear Seat" with no qualifiers. I'm a little
suspicious because they appear to be 'seats,' not a single unit, but
it's worth knowing about.
