The lights on my susuki boleno won't witch off. Do you know what is causing the problem


Disconnect the battery cable (either post) and leave disconnected for five minutes. Reconnect the cable. See if that makes a difference. By disconnecting the battery, the computer will reset.

I HAVE A 02 TRAILBLAZER,WITH 175K,NEW PLUGS (WITCH IT DIDN'T NEED)LESS THAN A YEAR OLD BATTERY(WITCH DOESN'T MEAN MUCH I KNOW)AND A INTERMITTENT P0300 CODE (WITCH SHOULD ELIMINATE A VACUUM LEAK. ...


Really don't think fuel pressure is the problem. More than likely it is a crankshaft position sensor or the camshaft position sensor. If you have any kind of an oil leak in the front main seal it could have dripped down onto the crankshaft position sensor and it is not giving a good reading to the PCM (computer) which in turn will throw this code. I have seen this many times being in the business. Below is a description of your DTC (diagnostic trouble code) right out of ALLDATA. If you need testing procedures for those sensors feel free to email me at csautomotivecars@att.net and I will be happy to send you the procedures. I hope this helps and good luck.

2000 Ford Escort ZX2.... I cannot tell which of my battery cables is the positive and negative, they're both black. i just replaced the...


Welcome to fixya!

This is a hard question to answer. The reason why is if the battery has been replaced they could have put it in with the terminals reversed. The easiest way for you to find witch one is closest to the firewall is to look on the battery. On the battery the terminals are stamped with a + and a - sign. The + sing is the positive and the - is negative post.

Good Luck
