  • My Reattas
  1. Thank you! If I can find a new mechanic to get it running again, we will give this a try for sure. Wish I had known about the photocell years ago. It makes sense.
  2. I have never been able to solve the backlighting problem. The only thing that lights up on the dash is the speedometer, and it's way too bright, with no adjustment. Replacing the headlight switch, and even the entire instrument cluster did not help. Funny thing, how the backlighting works just fine when the "light show" occurs when I start the car.
  3. Unfortunately, I am not able to work on the car myself. That's why it's sitting where it is. I wish there were more Reatta owners from Michigan on these forums. If there is, my car is at a shop called LTM, on E. Highwood, off Walton Blvd, in Pontiac. Surely, there must be a shop somewhere around here with a Reatta fan on the payroll, but if there is, I haven't had any luck finding it.
  4. The Reatta has him stumped. I've spent a fortune on parts, including a new instrument cluster. It didn't make any difference. In addition to the spare cluster, I have 2 spare touch screens, headlight switches rebuilt by Jim Finn, and a few other items I can't recall at the moment, all with no luck. The Reatta is a challenging vehicle. My new mechanic won't work on it either. Several years ago, at a car show in Flint, someone gave me the name and number of a shop that works on Reatta's. Sure wish I could remember who it was... I am hoping someone here may know. My Reatta is an '89, Polar White, grey interior.
  5. Does anyone know of a repair shop in the Detroit or Flint area, who can work on my Reatta? It has major electrical problems. My regular mechanic has had it at his shop for more than 5 years, and is not interested in working on it. This has dragged on far too long, and I need to either fix it, or junk it. My Dad worked at the Lansing Craft Center, and passed away in 2016. I would really like to get the Reatta back on the road again. Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
