Re: condensation in light housing
You won't be able to get the condensation out of the lamps. The light assemblies are sealed and only have a small hole where ther bulbs go in as well as a small vent. The condensation is normal and will come and go. Even if you put a new light assmebly on the car you could still get the condensation. Go to the dealer for the brake pedal pad.

Hi, are you up for a bit of troubleshooting? If yes, use a test light or voltmeter to check for voltage to the coil. Your test light clip or negative voltmeter probe should go to engine ground. The coil positive is on the black distributor wire with a white stripe. If there is not a good 12 volts with the key on, try disconnecting the external condenser. If that restores power to the coil, replace the condenser. If not, the problem may be the ignition switch.
If you have power to the coil, the problem may be the crankshaft position sensor. The sensor is on the transmission housing right at the flywheel/flexplate and has a brown and a black wire with a red stripe. Remove the connector and check the resistance of the sensor with an ohmmeter. Sensor resistance should be 432-528 ohms @ 77°F (25°C). Please let me know if you have questions and thanks for using FixYa.

If your sure the starter is bad than buy a new one. or find a local dealer that rebuilds parts. it is held in with a couple bolts on the bell housing.
Starter is on the bottom right hand (passenger side)Put the car on a ramps, support with jack stands and block the rear wheels. Disconnect your negative battery lead Disconnect your starter's electrical leads- one is a plastic clip. push the top in and it should slide apart. Some models are just held on with nuts. remove top and bottom bolts from starter housing. They are long bolts that pass through the starter housing into the engine block. Starter drops down, so don't let it hit you in the face. Installation is just the reverse of the above steps. Very easy to do, but tight japanese engines make for some knuckle scraping. the top bolt is the problem. You might have to disconnect some of the plastic air intake conduits to allow for easier access. A friend with skinny arms helps. Popeye would be helpless. Cost should be around $200 for a rebuilt starter.
There is a round plastic clip on the verticle carpet cover which must first be removed to access the back of the tail light assembly. Squeeze the back side of the clip and pull on the front of the clip until it snaps out. There are then two 5/16 nuts which must be removed. These are hidden by plastic wiring brackets which must be removed from the nut shaft. The light assembly can then be removed - note that there are two allignment posts attached to the assembly which slide thru slots on the out-side of the assembly. Carefully pull or pry backward to remove the assembly from the body of the car. Here you may access the back of the affected bulb. Simply turn to the left and remove/replace the bulb.
Tail light replacement is not as hard as it seems.
Tools needed:flat head screwdriver and a deep 5/32 socket(a pair of pliers will work).
Step 1: open trunk and pull back truck liner at tail light.There is a small button clip on liner.Use screwdriver to pop up the center of button clip,pull clip out of hole.
Step 2:You will see a black wire attached to the body of car with 2 white clips.Use screwdriver to pop clips off of studs.
Step 3:Remove the nuts from the studs and pull tail light assembly straight back away from car.The outer side of the light just snaps in and out of place.
Step 4:Turn light socket counter clockwise 1/3 turn and pull out.
Step 5:Pull bad bulb straight out and replace.Reverse steps to reassemble.
