If you're in the Northeast where the dampness and salt eat up cars, then yes, any older car will probably have electrical problems.
Another possible factor: previous owners may have tested electrical wires with probes that pierced the protective plastic on the wire. Left open, corrosion forms and shorts out wires. I've seen this on fairly new cars.
I own a '93 Pontiac Sunbird LE, my mother was the original owner, and we haven't experienced any electrical problems with her whatsoever... but then again, I live in the desert of California so that might have somethin' to do with it. Hope this helped!
I have a '93 Sunbird as well. I hit an animal with my car and the turn signal fell off. This created numerous problems with the wiring. I replaced the blinker and bulbs and then the left blinker signal stayed on when my lights were on. I replaced the flasher and still nothing. The guys at the auto parts store said it was a short in a wire but I have power, it just doesnt blink. Any suggestions?!
I used to own a 92 Pontiac sunbird, I bought it used with 90,000 miles on it so expected some issues. in the first 2 years I replaced the alternator 3 times, had constant problems with the lights, and radio sparadicaly going out. I then had a mechanic look at it and found that the battery's negative post was literaly hanging on by a thread. after replacing the battery I drove the car for another 3 years with out any major electrical problems.
