Subject: Re: rocker switch near gear shift 1985 900s


I am still getting familiar with this car. it appears that the switch is just shot. light stays on no matter what. but when you switch it the light flickers. I am getting quite a few positive comments about this car. I don't know history of car. I know that it spent time in Florida. I can't believe mileage is correct 141k miles on it. the body appears to be in good order. paint is faded (color silver) but it looks like it has not been in any wrecks. I guess the state of Florida may be kinder to automobiles then the state of Nebraska. (we put salt on roads here) hopefully this post works correct. am new to newsgroups. thanks rod "hippo" <johnhnospaml.net.au> wrote in message news:c0f2f763b76b4af94d76d93a7666a4ccnospamlhost.talkaboutautos.com... > Rod Hogg wrote: > >> Hello I just bought a 1985 saab 900s 5 speed.
