    Default Need help once again!!!

    Ok so im still on the hunt for my xj and I found another one bu this one is not running. It;s a 98 and the reason its not running because it was in a slight accident doesn't look bad but the airbags deployed. He said he drove it home and it never worked again. He said it's either some wiring issue or he thinks its because the bags deployed. Could having the bags deployed cause that and if not any advice? I know accident vehicles tend to have wiring issues but is there anything i can check real quick to see what it is. I don't have a voltmeter I sold it. Thanks for the advice in advance.

    91yeeper I want an xj cause for some reason the xj's stick out more to me and wranglers are expensive. I'm looking for a 4 door 4x4 with a 4.0. The stocker i get it the better but if it has stuff done to it it's ok. Btw how and where can I get a deal like that with out a membership or license and what was wrong with that one you bought.

    Most newer cars' computers will allow for limited driving with the airbags deployed. I'm not sure whether or not the XJ falls under this category. If it is, the computer will have to be reset and have to reflect that the airbags have not been deployed. Hopefully this helps!

    check out auctions in your area. police, insurance, repo's. local junkyards are your best bet. find pick-n-pulls, wander the rows of cars aimlessly, find what you want, tell them you want the whole thing with a title, release of lien (if it has one or if its possible), and tow it home. i bought an 87 F150 from a junkyard that had all the vacuum lines ripped off of it. if you know anything about older fords thats imminent death to them, $20 at napa and it was running great. i paid under $500 for the whole truck.

    Very Nice!

    My first truck was an '87 GMC 1/2 ton without an engine or axles. I went to a u-pull-it parts yard and got a straight 6 from a '66 El'camino, and axles from a half crushed '92 Chevy 1500. $280 in total and a bit of labor and I had a damn nice truck! I was 16 at the time, so this helped me learn also!

    I know they have impound auctions in Austin and they probably have them around your area also. Here is a page for an Auction site I watch a bunch. I am planning on going to the Uhaul storage auction in April. I am sure if you poke around auction sites or give them a call, they may be able to point you in some direction that will help you out. Calling an impound lot in a larger city may also get you some additional info.

    Shoot a pm to pacifier or shoot en email to him at [email protected] He knows a bunch of people in the Northern VA area and may be able to help with some parts info.
