>Hi all,
    I went to Ct. today to pick up the 1990 200tq I just bought from a priv=
ate sale. After driving for about 1hr I stopped for gas. When I went to
sta=rt the car, I tuned the key by mistake before disengaging the clutch.
The c=ar moved forward a bit because it was still in gear. Tried again in
neutral= with clutch pedal to the floor and nothing happened. The lights
come on, b=ut go dim when I turn the Key. Tried jumper cables, but it would
not turn o=ver. I had to leave it at a Mobil station off Rt. 290 in Ma. =

Sounds like a short or bad relay somewhere.  I had a 5000 that would do this
but start right up after a 10 minute cool down, even in sub freezing temps.
The car had just run, you had electricity, why didn't you just bump start
