I changed h2 and catylic converter,in line filter,muffler,mass air flow censor,and battery still no power could it be fuel pump regulater? fuel pump still pumping

That would have been an expensive exercise. Try resetting the engine management electronics. Disconnect the cars battery completely with your headlights on. Leave the battery disconnected for at least 30 minutes. Leaving the headlights in the on position will kill any residual power left in the car. Obviously, the clock, the radio etc will also lose their settings. make sure you have the Radio pin code BEFORE you disconnect the battery as you will need it to restart the radio. reconnect the battery and try the car again. Resetting the electronics will put it back to factory setting. Hopefully , this will cure your problems. Ive done it a few times on my Ford and its worked fine. If not sure, try looking online for "resetting Ford ECM" there are many videos and info showing this and how to do it.

Just had new shocks put on my Jeep Liberty 2005 CRD, and now the remote keys won't work. When I use them to unlock the door manually the alarm goes off.

Alot of times resetting is not exactly as some say including the owners manual. before going to a mechanic who knows your vehicle try the procedure a few times being sure to do it exactly the way the owners manual says to.

Why ref count moving so fast up and down when starting the engine

If the time is resetting on an after market stereo - improperly wired.
If the time is resetting on the digital clock (in dash) then battery connection may be loose causing dash to lose power while rotating starter.

Ingterior lights, clock and radio memory won't work on 1998 isuzu rodeo when key is not on

The radio receives power from the 15A AUDIO FUSE in the dash fuse box. The radio memory receives power from the 10A DOME LIGHT FUSE in the same box. The problems you note suggest the radio may have been misconnected at some point or there has been a fuse failure or there is a broken connection.

What is a fan speed high code 0495 on a 2002 trail blazer

The cooling fan on the engine has sensor that might mean that the fan is going faster than normal. Try resetting the main computer by disconnecting the car battery for about 35 seconds. Reconnect the battery. If the code comes back, there may be a problem with the fan. Try replacing it. Remember that when you disconnect the battery, you will loose settings on the clock and radio. Hope this works for you.

I have a 1995 toyota corolla that the clock has started resetting itself to random times while the car is on. All other electricals seem to be functioning fine, just the clock. Any suggestions besides...

The clock will reset to 1:00, I believe, if its power supply is interrupted and then resumed. This could happen randomly if the clock's electrical connectors have come loose. To verify this, you would need to pull the clock and radio dash panel. This is not too difficult to do, just remove the heating control arm tabs then pry the panel loose at the edges using a flathead screwdriver - the panel is held in just by spring clips. If the clock connections seem secure, you might consider replacing the clock. Inexpensive replacement clocks are available on eBay or from salvage yards.

My 96 grand Cherokee bcm screen in flashing and I dont know why

If you disconnected the battery then you'll need to reset the clock. Once the clock is set it should stop flashing. Other things that will reset the BCM and cause it to flash like that is an error such as a broken latch or faulty sensor that's tied to the BCM. Hope this helps.
