Having issues with dash and headlight dimming, also radio goes off and looses memory, door locks won't work when radio goes off. Burnt out defogger relay and power amp fuse with no power amp, also had to replace horn relay yet taking all those relays out and problem still happens. Already checked lighter assembly, that was popping amp fuse. Fixed that still happening. Also goes through 1 quart of oil a month but no leaks under the car when moved. "????" help!!!!!! the oil problem should fall under hazardous meterials act if all these cars are dumping used oil all over this country.
