Problems with my 1987 420 SEL
Alright so here are a few problems to list that I know of so far lol.
Car hasn't been driven in about 2 years. Put a new battery in it and started it up and here is what I found.
1. Started up just fine, then after about 2-4 min. idoling the temp went all the way over the red line!
2. Inside the car, the buckle up light keeps flashing when all seat belts are buckled in.
3. There was an annoying siren noise coming out when car was running and idoling.
4. After I let the car cool down (day later) I turned it on once again and a big spark shot out from the grille (dad saw it) then a light cloud of smoke came out through the grille as well.
I started the car again later (just enough to see if it was the battery) so I know its not the battery.
Any help would be fantastic, and any other suggestions as to what else to look for would be awesome as well.
