Picked up a new to me 98SE this morning. Need to tear into it to see what all it needs, but so far it drives perfectly with no lights. 133k on it, been parked for 2 years. Was able to drive it home. Guess I can't stay away from these things 😂
So..... When you turn the lights on, it doesn't run?

^ Vulcan or Duratec?
Vulcan unfortunately, tec gen 3s (and 4s) are unobtainable these days around here. The mountains are hard on the transmissions in these cars so they seem to have all been junked by now :( My tec Sable left my fleet a few months ago, it would pour trans fluid out the converter seal when warm and It needed too many other things. Rip.

No I just meant no check engine/transmission anything like that. Which is crazy for having sat 2 whole years. Previous owner claimed mystery battery drain though. No stuck cassette, so I suspect the junkyard alternator or the glove box light. I won't have time to tear into it for the next week.
