    A few questions from the new fleetwood owner...

    Traveled to st louis last week for a 95 fleet . Tow package car, 175k . Got a good deal and brought it home, it cleaned up quite nicely . I have a few questions..

    The previous owner said the car needs a power steering pressure switch. Would that cause the car to have stumble issues when doing low idle turns ?

    When i take off theres a definite hesitation and i must push more into the pedal past it... Wheres a good place to start a diagnosis?

    Is the tow package 3.73 rear a limited slip , requiring a special fluid?

    Power steering pressure switch may cause that low speed stumble on turns. Unplug it to find out.

    Hesitation is usually ignition. Start with coil wire, then plugs, then ICM, then wires. Then start to think opti.

    Tow pack is 3.23, non posi. No additive. No 94-96 Fleetwoods got posi.

    The pressure switch raises the curb idle slightly when turning sharp to park. Its probably not doing that. Unplug it and find out!

    You have an OBD1 scanner, it's built into your car. See the FAQ sticky for how to access the data through your HVAC head. I don't have a 94-96 anymore, but I seem to recall that the steering assist connector just plugs into the top of the steering box. Driver's side frame rail, under the air intake tubing...

    I need a idea... I notice tonight I have no brake or turn lights . All other lights function fine. A fuse diagram would be most helpful ....

    Fuse diagram is on the sticker on the back of the fuse panel cover. Driver's side door jam, end of the dash. There are more fuses in the AUX fuse fox under the hood (with their own diagram on the lid bottom).
