PostPosted: Mon Apr 19, 2010 5:54 pm    Post subject:  late intro + question Reply with quote

My name is Julia, though I've been mainly a lurker as most of my questions already have answers. Finally found the imp I wanted a few months ago and am still just as in love with it as the first day. Almost entirely stock for now, until I can save up for some big jobs over summer. Had a few minor things done (garage) but nothing drastic yet. Flip currently has my tails while wedebrook so kindly lent me spares and ffjwhite swapped for me (I'm a psych major so unfortunately didn't go down that route regarding knowhow.) Ello!



I keep it spotless 24/7 inside, clean everything at least once a week. I've been told by my buddies they've never seen it not. A couple attempts at fancy art shots...









This car was filthy when I got it, the dealer overlooked cleaning it. I decided to wait until spring to have it professionally cleaned for free, but did my own job anyway. Couldn't believe what came out of the door handles Shocked. Spotless as f$$$.







Also thought I'd throw these in from the car show thread if you haven't seen them already.





Now for the question; I have been having a fog light issue. They have been intermittent for just under a week, and decide not to work and then 30 seconds later they do turn on. Also when I try to turn them on when they aren't cooperative, the light powers on and right back off in a split second. It is under warranty still, but I was wondering if anyone knows what the reason for this might be? Thanks for the responses.

Your car's in a puddle.

The fog lamp relay could be going, the switch could be bad, or evil mind-controlling bees could have encouraged mice to chew thru your wires a bit. It shouldn't be too hard to track down the problem.

Its your fog light relay. Mines did the same thing and made my HID's flicker before turning on and then completely didn't turn on at all until i replaced the relay. I do believe the fuse is a 40 amp relay. Beautiful impala by the way. Smile

I agree with batman, car looks really good. I'm alittle envious of your spoiler and painted trim. Smile

I actually like the picture of the car in the water. Its a nice reflection and shows a calming day.

Send a few of those for Impala of the Month.

Agreed. I've got this years NAIOA calendar and April's car is Specter's essentially bone stock (exterior wise) SS at sunset.
