Well since the weather has finally improved. I took the opportunity to work on 192. After the issue witht the burnt harness; I bought the front end harness from NateCrisman (Big thanks btw) to replace the one that i suspected of being destroyed. Just taking my time things went pretty smoothly. I also took the time to do a couple of other things I've been needing to do such as swap out the non functional cruise control for the N/A throttle cable,remove a/c condensor and lines, and begin getting everything ready to relocate the battery back to the front of the car.
A little history: the PO before me put a radiator out of a neon in the car to make room for the holset he had in it. Well this radiator was not properly mounted by any means and was actually laying against the radiator support. One of the fans had been rigged to run when the ignition was in the on postion. Mind you nothing i've found so far had been done correctly or safely.
As I pulled the harness from the front of the car where it runs underneath the radiator support I saw this. The culprit behind why I had to replace the entire lighting and wiper assembly on the column and my headlights remained on at all times with the switch unplugged and fuses/relays removed .
As it stands right now I will be replacing the radiator. I have many options open to me and can not decide which way to go. The civic and AFCO radiator setup sounds nice for the space it gives. But I think a stock radiator would be nice too.
