he told me that it had been at shop to be smogged and that they never drove enough miles for the computer to calibrate or whatever. so i now im going to message him if they were planning on smogging it with no dash lights haha...they were buddies so it could be the case...I think you have been conned. Why would anyone remove the IC fuse #7 out ? To hide the fault indicators that may pop up as you drive ? Wrong fuse will not cause this.
i notice a white powder like corrosion on top\back computer thing above the k40, wonder if its damaged from getting wet
