Yes, one more vote for Jeff at Boulder Muffler in Boulder. He did exhaust work on my FJ62 and FJ40. High quality work at a reasonable price.

100 series brake/electrical weirdness

I started my 2003 100-series this morning, after ~2 weeks sitting, and the
following dash lights came on and stayed on: BRAKE (e-brake), ABS, VSC TRAC, and VSC OFF.

Any ideas?

Test drove it - it's in good shape for a 30 year old car, but still pretty tired. Needs new shocks, new driver seat foam, dash cover, some interior work. A/C not working, reverse slow to engage. ...

emissions testing
