Per your description, it sounds as though your DIC's IC has gone to lunch. Remove and verify power and ground is good, if it checks OK, replace the DIC.
Good luck, let me know.

Had the tail light assmbly (drivers side) on my 2006 chrysler t&c stolen. Took the plug too. I got the repair parts but cannot figure out the wiring. Four wires. Black with green stripe white with...

Not sure I follow your question. The replacement lamp assembly did not come with the wiring for the lights ?
According to the diagram, white lite green is the backup lamp, black dark green is ground, white brown is the parking light, and white dark green is the turn signal or brake light.

I am trying to locate the relay switch for a 1994 buicl lesabre. the panel is not labeled. the switch is for the air conditioner clutch. all other fuses are ok

Hello: Under the hood at the back there is a cover, remove it. There are relays. I think the A/C clutch relay is the first one toward the passenger side. It should have 4 wires, black, orange, solid green, and green with a white stripe. The relay is controlled by the engine computer. Provide a ground to the black wire and see if the compressor clutch works.

Hello there
what i have done is remove the whole lite if you can and if it will seperate that is good if not you will have to use a scouring pad like brillow and it takes time but with a long screwdriver or somtehing solid use the billow pad to scrape the color away using the screwdriver to move the brillow pad also sometimes if you soak it in bleach and a good cleaner this will work too ok also a parts cleaner will work too if it is not too bad but just take your time you will get better results if you take your time ok?

Replacing the Stereo in an 1995 Audi A6 Quattro....

I assume this is an aftermarket radio and you don't know the connections?

Normally, the red is + and the black -. A yellow wire usually is a feed to a power amp to turn it on when the radio goes on.

On the speaker side, you should have paired up wires like:
Yellow solid and yellow w/black stripe
Brown solid and brown with black stripe
Green soild and green with black stripe... you get the idea. The solid color wire is the positive and the balck striped match is the negative.
There should be 8 speaker wires altogether to give you L/R fron and L/R rear.

If you don't know which terminal is positive and negative on your speakers, try this;
Take a 1-1/2 volt AA battery and connect it to a speaker momentarily ( I do mean momentarily or you'll blow it). If the speaker cone moves out away from the magnet then the terminals match the polarity of the battery - and +.
If the cone moves towards the magnet the polarity is reversed. It is important you connect the speaker phasing (polarity) correctly other wise you will get poor bass output.
Whatever you do, do not ground any speaker wires!!!!

How do i take off the front rotor to a 95 grand cherokee 4x4 4.0 liter

Remove the caliper, then give rotor a good solid smack with a large rubber hammer or a 2x4 placed across it for protection and a decent weight hammer. (use wd 40 around center and also through openings where wheel lugs come through.) I know...sounds really "high tech" but it works every time!

1999 jeep grand cherokee laredo 4.0 litre 6cyl automatic cooling fan does not come on to cool engine, causing overheating of the engine.

OK here we go you will need a test light for the following tests, i will try to be as descriptive as possible so lets get started

fist start the engine and turn on the a/c that should command the fan on.
right front engine compartment next to the battery is the power distribution center pop off the top, ground your test light to the negative battery terminal and find fuse number 10 it is a 40 amp fuse check both sides of this fuse with your test light, if you have power on both sides of the fuse than we shall go further.

unplug the connector from the cooling fan, there should be two wires in the plug one is dark green and the other is black with a pink tracer, with your test lite grounded to the negative battery terminal check the dark green wire for power, if there is power there than move your test light ground clamp to the battery positive terminal and test the black wire for ground,
if testing the black wire made the test light shine than the ground circuit is good, if it did not than check you ground connection behind the right headlight.
when testing the dark green wire, if the dark green wire made the test light shine and the ground circuit is good than you simply have a bad coolant fan motor.

I suspect you were not getting power to the fan motor so you will need to take a look at the radiator fan relay, this is a special solid state relay mounted to the inside of radiator core support on the right side down behind the bumper.

here you will find a single plug with 4 wires in it

black = ground
dark blue / pink = relay controll from pcm
dark green = output to radiator cooling fan
gray = battery power from fuse # 10 in pdc

unplug the relay ground your test light to the battery negative terminal, with the engine running and a/c turned on check the gray wire the test light, it should turn on if not recheck fuses.

move your test light to the battery posistive terminal and test the dark blue / pink wire, if the test light turns on than you have a bad radiator fan relay, you can pick one up at your local parts store for about $85.00 just make sure you get a high quality one the cheap ones have a hard time with the amprege consumption of that fan.

good luck

First you need to UN DO your first hook up. Put it back the way it was before you splice. You have evendently spliced the wrong wires. Without schematics colors and stripe won't mean anything.

Be thankful you haven't damaged anything or burn something out in your control module.

You need to find the schematic wiring for the radio.

Or if you have a taple player in the radio, by the tape adapter for CD player. Until you can find out what wires PRE AMP the tape player then you can splice.

1990 Volvo DL Sedan Brake Lites Work but Also Come on With Running Lites

Is there a switch on the left side of the dash that has a red lens and a wavy line across it? If so, you have a rear fog light switch and it has been activated, causing your brake lights to come on each time you turn your headlights on. Flip the switch and the rear lights should display only the parking lights with the headlights on.
