    I can't figure this out. 1982, 280zx, non-turbo, 2+0, GL stereo, cassette tape. I have a working stock stereo/antenna/antenna switch (not sure on the switch) all work fine. The problem is the antenna receives no power and the switch isn't getting power either. I've tested the power to the...

    My 280zx has a high idle issue since I bought it, fixed several vacuum leaks, replaced the AAC, replaced the intake/exhaust gasket, injectors, inline fuel filter, fuel pump, most of the rubber soft fuel lines.

    Hello, I recently acquired a 1983 Datsun 280ZX, and after driving it periodically over the past few weeks, I've discovered a few issues. Some of these I have a general idea of how to fix and just need to make sure I'm not missing anything, and some of them have me stumped even after reading...

    Lined up to buy an '81 280zx that's been sitting for close to 30 years, the owner claims to have the parts needed to get it restored but hasn't had the time to install everything. There are a few hoses that lead to nothing as well as a towel blocking something in the engine underneath the...

    So I have a 1982 base model 280zx that tends to run hot quickly; it has never over heated on me but I've noticed that about 10 minutes on the freeway will tend to make the coolant temp rise above operational temp, and after the engine gets this warm if I turn it off and then try to start it up...

    So I just bought my 1983 280zx and I’m trying to diagnose my turn signal problem and I looked up under the dash where the timer flasher is and it’s missing a component directly beside it. It’s a little smaller in size and has 2 pins outs that connect to it. So my question is, what is it?

    Having trouble starting a 1982 280zx I recently bought. I got it close to starting after getting a remanufactured starter & ignition coil, but as soon as the coil was thrown in & I tried starting it, the green relay behind the battery blew (I saw the smoke come from there so I assumed it was...
