Without testing the electrical circuit's for the headlamps we'd only be guessing . Looking at wiring diagrams an testing the circuit's with a DMM - digital multi- meter is the way to find the problem , not just replacing part's . Sound's like you know nothing of automotive electrical system's ,an testing . Suggest you take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop.

The wire to the sender in the fuel tank is shorted. If it was open or disconnected it would read full.

Are you having trouble with brake lamps? The orange wire is voltage for brake lamps, voltage comes from fuse. When brake switch is activated, the white wire goes hot, goes to turn signal switch. Your lower brake lamps are wired through turn signal switch.
Any other wires may be for cruise control, where applicable. I'm probably leaving something out, I just can't think what it is, at the moment?

Well you can find the horn on the front by the grill or on the wheel well. I prefer the easy way. Pull the fuse for the horn.
Hope this helps. God Bless :O)

Paul, you do not have to remove motor just unplug it, if you do not want it powering up. Open hood and see if you can see antenna base through a inner fender access hole, if you can,be careful of sharp metal, you will have to reach in and unplug.

Should be one line comes from the fuel tank to the pump and the other line goes from the pump to the carburetor or injector body. Some cars have a third line that relieves fuel pressure from the pump to the return in the tank. This third line is much smaller than the other 2

what engine?

Do you have power to the injectors? if not check the ECM1 fuse. If blown check the wiring harness around the throttle body for pinched wires to the injectors. Really common on the early throttle body engines.

I agree with the above comments. You have to be sure you got the firing order correct. If in doubt, look it up and double check it. When a car is backfiring, it can be from running the fuel too lean. You can always buy a compression tester tool and make sure you have compression on all cylinders.

According to Dan B. on answers yahoo.com: "missing spacer. The heavy wire from your alternator goes directly to the battery.
