So since my last post I've made some progress, but the work is never ending!

I replaced the fuses and now Everything works; headlights, flashers, turn signals, horn, everything!

I was so excited about the headlights! I wanted to check the gauges so I go over to the door, pull the handle to get in and the door handle breaks off.. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/hissyfit.gif)

Congrats on the success and place a WTB for the door handle. The lock cores remove easily so just move yours to the new one. Lube every moving part in the door so it doesn’t require a lot of pressure to function. Same with all the locks and latches.
