Check for a broken wire in the hand piece trigger and the connection at the end of the wire lead tube.

    Didnt think the relay would click if there was a problem in the handpiece? Anyway, the wires appear OK. Not sure what you mean by "wire lead tube"??

  • Bill Boyd Jul 21, 2013

    When you press the hand piece trigger the current flows through a relay which activates the power to the feed motor circuit. Ther is no power getting to the feed motor. Check that the feed speed is not turned right down as it is only a variable resistor pot next check for power to the motor it self. If you model uses the power to go through the hand piece micro switch then directly back to the feed motor the relay you are haering may be only the gas solenoid turnung on in which cas e you may have short in the wire back to the feed motor in the casing that the welding wire passes through or a loose connection where the casing is plugged into the welder unit.

1998 expedition driver window fuse or relay

If you hear the relay, you need to pull the door panel and check power at the motor. Power there replace it. No power, the wires tend to break in the rubber boot at the front of the door jam.

I have a 2000 chevy blazer the blower works on 1 2 and 3 but it wont work on 4 I changed the dash switch and the resister but that didn't work

There is a relay in the under hood fuse box , blower motor relay .When switched to high it energizes the relay allowing power from the HVAC fuse /30 amp to flow direct to the blower motor. from pin 30 to pin 87 , if you look on the side of the relay there is a diagram .For all other speeds the current flows from the switch through the resistor through pin 87a to pin 30 on to the blower motor ! Check the HVAC fuse in the under hood fuse block .IF the fuse is good check for continuity between the fuse side with out B+ that means pulling the fuse and using a volt meter to see which side has power and checking the side that doesn't have power to pin 87 at the relay socket ! Probably a bad fuse or stuck relay . Pull that relay and try a different one. You can get wiring diagram at click on technical information ,then click on Technical Service Bulletins & Wiring Diagrams .then on next page go down to the bottom and click on I agree . next page click wiring diagrams ,then just fill in you vehicle information .then HVAC system . click on diagram, then you will see 7 links , click on the 5th one and that's the diagram for the blower motor circuit !

No four wheel drive

problem could be transfercase shift control module.or check 10 AMP fuse to the front axle switch since the transfercase module will send a signal to engage front axle then transfercase encoder is mounted to the shift motor so the transfercase control module control shift control motors also transfercase speed sensors.the transfercase assembly complex system work on since every thing electronic controlled.

96 acura tl 2.5l. havc diagnosis only indicates a fault in the blower motor circuit. The 30 amp fuse under the hood is fine. The relay in the under dash bank is good. High speed relay is good and...

power flows from fuse to blower motor relay. From there it flows to blower motor. Blower motor receives ground from two different places depending on which speed you choose. If you choose high speed, it gets ground through the blower motor high relay. If you choose any other speed, it gets ground through the power transistor below the right side of the dash. The power transistor regulates fan speed by pulsing ground on and off based on the speed you've set. Power transistor is most common failure point in these systems

Coiling fan radiator

Having a problem with the electric fan? Here's what to check: first make sure fan is free-wheeling. Spin it by hand. If no obstructions, use jumper leads off the battery to test fan motor. If nothing, motor is bad. If fan operates off the battery, find the radiator fan relay under the hood, and pull it out. One relay terminal will have a hot at all times power source, probably from a fuse link or a maxi-fuse in the fuse/relay box. Check that one terminal is hot at all times, using a voltmeter or test light. If you have air conditioning, turn the AC on, key on. Now, two terminals at relay should show power-the power feed source, and the signal from computer to turn the relay on.
Didn't say what kind of car or year you have, but here is how an older Nissan turns the fan on, without using the computer, and with no AC: the relay signal to shoot power to the fan comes from a thermal switch mounted in the radiator. When coolant reaches 194 degrees F., the thermal switch will close contacts internally, passing power to the relay's coil side of relay. Relay is energized and passes power to the fan motor.
For your car, you will have to check a wiring diagram to see how the cooling fan circuit is set up. The fan relay may be triggered by the computer or by a coolant sensor somewhere in the coolant system.

Lift pump fuses no power to lift pump

There could be a thermal cutout switch on the motor itself. Look for a button on the motor body. if you find one, press it. If it clicks, it was tripped.

How to install fog lights

To do it right you will need several things. Go to and register your vehicle to get a free wiring diagram and fusebox diagram.

This will help you wire the Fog lights. Here is how you plan this. You will need a light Relay to go inline between the lights and the Power supply. Get a Relay which needs a trigger wire to activate and fuse the power line going to the Relay.

This means that the Relay only needs power from the trigger wire to activate the connection between the power and the lights.

Then you need to pass the trigger wire through the Firewall(Cabin) in a manner that will not chaff the wire. This wire should be fused too! You can try to use an unused position in the Fusebox or inline fuse.

The power for this trigger wire should be controlled by the Ignition switch

This means that it will only have power when the Ignition is on. You do not want it to receive power when the Ignition is in ACC or OFF.

Wiring it in this sequence will prevent you from leaving the Fog lights burning without having the Ignition switch in the RUN position. Doing it this way will also let you leave the Fog lights switched ON between uses so you need not bother to turn the Fog lights off/on each time you get in your car.

Each power wire is protected by a fuse so if something shorts on one side of the Relay, the other end of the Relay may be unharmed.

Then it is just a matter of chosing the switch, lighted will indicate if the Fog lights are on, but not necessary to the basic operation of the switch. Then chose wisely for where you drill a mounting hole. Sometimes it is good to chose a panel that can be replaced if you change your mind about its' location.

Please rate my solution.

Have you ruled out that the starter has gone bad? With use and age, the armature can sieze in the motor, essentially making the motor useless even though there is voltage applied to it..

How do i wire angel eye spots up can i do it without a rely ford ranger mk 2 o5 model

I recommend using a relay, It is the best way to take the load off of a switch, and keeping the circuit more reliable. otherwise you need a heavy duty switch.
Relays are actually very simple once you understand how they work
A relay is simply a electricly triggered switch, and has two seprate halfs,
  • One half is the trigger. (a power and ground trigger it) On the relay you should see a diagram drawing with the pin outs. the trigger portion is noted as the curly line.
  • the other half is the switch part of the relay (sending power to your lights)
The switch part of the relay gets a power wire on one side and the spot lights on the other side.
Run a good power wire that is big enough to handle the load from the under hood fuse box battery lug, to the relay. Dont forget to put an inline fuse on that power wire. (fire prevention in case of a short)
Then you run a ground wire to one side of the trigger and a power wire from a switch to the other side of the trigger. polarity does not matter.
dont worry if the relay has 5 terminals you are going to only use 4.The extra one is for normally closed position of the switch.
I hope this helps
