1998 DX Coupe

I just bought a 1998 DX coupe form a guy off Craigslist, he said the Odomiter and speedometer was not working. so i went their and he was asking $3200 For it but the Trans was Slipping and the lights flashing (inside and out) and i bought the car thinking i could fix this all really easy. the first thing i found on Google was check the fuses so i did and he had a 5Amp fuse in a 7.5 and it was blown, i replaced the fuse and the car runs perfect. no problems what so ever just a little bad idling once you become to a stop which is my idle censer but i talked him down 600 dollar's over a 1 Dollar fuse.

Sometimes people don't want to bother trouble shooting and think its easier to just rid of the car. Or he is a good salesman but horrible machanic.
