No tailights

Thats it just no tail lights? No tail lights on what? Car ,Truck, Motorcycle, Motor home, Lawn tractor, Locomotive!!!
If you want a good answer we need a good question. Re post with the following:
Trim package:
Engine size, I know its the tail lights but different engines sizes will sometimes need different wiring of other systems.
and Trans type. Manual, Auto number of gears. An automatic may have a different tail light switch than a Manual due to the brake pedals being different.

You are asking someone to help you solve a problem on a very complicated machine. Anyone attempting to help you will need as much info as you can give them.
Good luck with your re post.

I've got a statesman 2001 with a 5.7ltr motor that's blown up. Can I put a 5ltr motor and gearbox out of a vt berlina in it?

check how much difference in the bell housing area of the motors as it may be possible to do a straight engine swap. Contact your local holden car club as there are members who will have tried everything and can advise you on what is possible.

What size engine is in 1992 Ford pick up

There are a few ways to know what size engine you have. First, if the engine is the original that came with the truck, look at the sticker on the hood stating info about smog or EPA also has the info about the size of motor you have in the truck.

The next thing would be to research the VIN number. Each number/letter means something about the truck.

Have you tried researching any of the two? Do you know if it is the original motor?

I want buy motor overhall

There are two different engine sizes at Pontiac Transport. You can find it reading the 8th digit of the Vehicle Identification Number. This is the engine code.
6-231 (3.8L, VIN "L")
6-191 (3.1L, VIN "D")
To buy the motor go to the Internet @:
Select the Year, Make, and Model of your car.
1993, Pontiac, Transport.
Select Engine. Select the size of Engine.
I found some engines, Engine Size 3.8L, for $750.

I have a Chevy book covering that year. Code12 is the code that flashes to let you know the ECM is working properly and there is no problem. As to the 11 code there is none in the book for that number.
