I just bought a '97 Mark. I paid considerably less than book value, and the
car seems mechanically tight (it will need a repaint, though-crappy,
sun-faded Ford black paint). However, there are a few minor bugs. Any
insight would be appreciated.
1) Neon tail light is out. I've ordered a clean, tested replacement from a
salvage guy, and I've read a site explaining how to swap it out. But still,
don't neon lights last an awfully long time? Could it be a fuse? It's not a
safety concern, but I'd obviously prefer it to work.
2) The trunk release button doesn't work. Considering how many more complex
electronic toys that could fail in a car like this, this is another mystery
to me. Again, could this be something as simple as a fuse?
I haven't had a chance to examine this car very closely, so please excuse my
Air suspension is good, the car has 82k miles. It's frigging fast, too!
