Electrical problems are one of the most common problems in old cars, ranging from small annoying items like windshield wipers that seem to have a mind of their own to major problems like ignition coils that won’t ignite, or fuel pumps that can’t put out. They are also one of the most expensive repairs you can pay for, since most of the bill will be spent in diagnosis.
