Possible vacume leak not allowing the vent system to switch from door to face air flow.

If your cents are controlled by a cable rather than vacume, it is possible that the clip holding the cable has broken.

It's screwed on with normal screws. Usually they're hidden behind panels and compartments to maintain their sleek look. Open everything up and look at it from underneath. It will be a scavenger hunt. Sometimes they're even just held on with tabs and need to be popped loose with a flathead screwdriver.

you may have a gas tank vent problem that is causing pressure build up in the tank.

The green 30 Amp fuse goes to the fuel pump. You can test disconnecting fuel pump (at the pump). If fuse does not blow, then the pump motor is shorting. If it does not blow, then check wiring and box soldering .

If the box is loose and wiggly, replace it in any case. Your risk to blow more expensive parts because of the fuse box.

About the pigtail fuse not blowing, the only explanation is that there is a short in the spots where the SBF fuse makes contact, and that the short occurs when you plug in the fuse. When you mount the pigtail it does not short. It should be the same with a 30A pigtail.

Have a look at the fuse pump wiring and repair or replace the fuse box. You can get one at the scrapyard for $10.

Hi the 92 svxs are quite nice cars, they are very reliable which is good as parts for them can be really expensive, the transmissions are not too bad but some do have overheating probs if driven too hard. A lot of people perfer the manual trans as the autos can be a bit sluggish sometimes. Regular fuel can be run with not a huge diff but they can be a bit thirsty at times because of their weight. your spot on with the comp ratio and when looking at one i would check the car has the extra trans cooler installed to cool trans or has got the extra filter that should have been put in from a factory recall, wheel bearings can play up so check for grinding noises around wheels and brakes can warp easily if driven like a race car, check trans shifts smoothly, make sure its been serviced on a regular basis and also check for oil leaks around the rear of motor as this is also common, most of these problems are an easy fix anyway but just be aware when buying

Hi! You may want to check the rear suspension bushings first. If they are worn it's like something is going off for it there is metal to metal contact. Please do check the bushings first before pulling out the sensors. HOpe this helps and thank you for using FIxYa!

Could be a sensor ,but your best bet is to have car scanned for transmission codes

The issue appears to be associated with the accident.
That should not break the radar unit. It would realign the antennas, maybe damage an antenna or wiring or connector.
That is where I would look. Since you already replaced the radar unit part and bumper, that is about the only thing left. Check the wiring carefully.

The camera has been bumped out of place. To set it right. Put your emergency brake on and block your wheels. Then put your car in reverse so your camera comes on. From under the car you should be able to adjust the camera to the right position.
