Hello, i am new to these fourms and i have just bought a 1992 nissan 240sx and i have some questions...

1. tell me this my car is a 5spd but has an overdrive light on the right beside the rear windshield wiper/washer button, why? what is susposed to be there?

2. i was told my car is a se due to it having SE on the hatch but i have come to relize it has no power windows or locks or mirrors, is there a way to make at least the mirrors power?, like a how to?

3. around 2000 rpm the engine shakes abnormaly and sounds like its backfiring i have repaced the fuel filter and put new spark plugs (NGK)..anything else i should look for/or do?

4. a/c does not work, when i press the a/c button, no light comes on, maybe no a/c in my car...what would i look for in the engine bay to show that i have a/c

thanks alot guys, like i said i am new to these fourms, i sold my 94 integra gsr to buy this 240sx, becuse i love the RWD, and am planning for a sr20det swap, all the info i can get will be helpfull

i opened the light up and its not even hooked up its just there, and i found out that the rear axel has "91 240sx" written in yellow on it so now i guess the cars made up of several others or something, i paid 5000 canadian, the ka24de in it is in good cond. besides the vibrating it has 177 kilometers on it, but the body is in really good shape, i have removed the rear spolier, added new tires, new gas tank (old one leaked) and the previous owner spray painted (smoked) the taillgihts, so i cleaned that off so the cars in good shape but the wiring looks tampered with...a good sr swap will or at least i hope make the car worth it

haha, well ive been waiting to get my hands on a 240sx for awhile i had fun with my gsr, vtec and all but i needed rwd and ive heard big numbers comming off with the sr swap, its about 4,113.19 american. the numbers match so the engine is the original i guess?, the diff is new....what kind of diff is in that car?. the car has rust everywhere incl. the interior. how much in canadian will a full sr swap incl. installation roughly set me back?. and what is the main diffrences in the rad and black top sr20det's?

you guys have been great, thanks

i dunno man the gsr ripped right outta the box, very fast compared to this stock 240, but the sx has lots of tq at low end which i like. yah it says my car was made in japan, and a history report says its rebuilt and from out of province, so i guess it was peiced back together....when i press the a/c button the green light doest come on plus i dont hear a change in sound comming from the engine. i agree i dont need a/c but its nice to have.
