My 1994 be Jetta won't start I charged batty put a new terminal on positive side still nothing it dose not even click is the a really under dash that would stop it from running

Sounds like your ignition switch is bad. You can replace it but requires taking the whole inflation key Assembly out to install a new switch in it. To test this, open hood and pull the plug off the starter (in pic, I have the plug pulled off from where the yellow connector with brow wire is). There are metal locking clips that act as handles. You squeeze then together as you are removing the plug. Now, to test my theory ( if you have standard transmission, make sure parking brake is set and it's in neutral), touch a wire from that terminal to ground (any bare metal on the car). If it cranks, ignition switch is the problem. Remember the yellow connector with the brown wire o mentioned? Well, that's my easy fix. I ran a wire from the terminal on the starter, through the firewall (just found a grommet with other wires already going through the firewall and poked it through) and then over where you probably have a blank switch cover (covers the hole where a switch could be for an accessory your car didn't come with). I'd tell you to go to radio shack, but it... If you have a local electrical supply store or maybe even computer store like microcenter, get a momentary single pole single throw switch (mine is just a small black push button) that is around 3/8" in dinner Max. With the switch cover off your dash, drill a hole the size to match the threads of the switch. Solder the wire from the starter that you ran earlier, to one terminal of the switch. Find a good screw near the hole that the blanking cover came from and that is screwed into metal to attach a wire to (you can just strip the end of another piece of wire like the first one but only long enough to go from there screw to the new switch. Solder the other end of the wire to the other terminal on the new switch. You might have someone help you before you solder it to make sure everything is going to work. All that's left is to attach the new switch to the switch cover that you drilled the hole in and snap it back into place.
the great thing about this is, even though you still have to have the key in and turned on, it's now a push button start just like the newer cars. Also, a little bit of a theft deterrent.

Disengage airbags Buick century 2002

Find the fusebox, on the back of the panel covering the box, there should be a list of what each fuse does. Find "airbag" and pull the fuse out. Wait AT LEAST 45 mins after doing that to work near the airbags because they can hold a surface charge. When in doubt, unplug the pos terminal of the battery and again wait 45 mins. When inside the dash, any bright yellow wire is an airbag wire. Be gentle!

Where are the spark plugs located at

I found this solution and will not take credit for it, I had the same problem. To change the spark plugs on a 2000 Kia Sephia, at least in a 1.8L version, first disconnect the battery, then, remove the black plastic cover on top of the motor. There should be 6 Phillips-head screws holding it down. After removing the plastic cover, you will see two rubber covers for the spark plug wires on each side, and two gel-looking insuated tubs attatched to more wires in the middle. To remove two of the spark plugs, you must carefully pull the rubber covers upward. They clip onto the spark plugs so you will need to use careful force to pull them out. Once you have them pulled out, you can look in and see the plug. It requires a 5/8 spark plug socket with an adapter to reach in. Make sure you push the socket on hard enough so that it clips onto the spark plug, other wise it will fall over and you wont be able to get it out without a LOT more work. Finish that plug by plugging the rubber covered spark plug wire back onto the spark plug, covering the hole. You can do the same thing for the plug on the opposite side. For the two in the middle, you need to first unbolt and remove the insulated boxes that cover the spark plug holes (you can unplug the white connectors but make sure you plug them back in when you are done). Then all you have to do is do the same thing you did with the two outer ones to replace the plugs. Perform this one plug at a time, and make sure you cover the holes with a cloth or paper towel if you leave them open for any period of time. When you finish, make sure all the wires are connected, then reconnect the battery.

Where is the ignition control module on an 1989 totota camry

Toyota Camry 1983-1996 Repair Guide Ignition Module - REMOVAL & INSTALLATION

All engines, except the 2S-ELC, have an external igniter.
  1. Turn the ignition key to the OFF position. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Separate the wiring harness connections.
  3. Unbolt the igniter.
  4. Loosen the nut holding the wire lead onto the coil.
  5. Tag and disconnect the wire lead.
  6. Lift the igniter off its mount.

To install:
  1. Mount the igniter to the bracket.
  2. Attach the wire lead to the coil.
  3. Connect the harness.
  4. Connect the negative battery cable. Reset any digital equipment such as radio memory and the clock if necessary.

See Figure 1
The internal igniter is only applicable to 2S-ELC engine Camry models. All other engines are equipped with an external igniter assembly.
Review the complete service procedure before this repair. Note position, color of wire and routing of all internal distributor assembly wiring.
  1. Disconnect the cable from the negative battery terminal.
  2. Remove the number one spark plug. Place a finger over the spark plug hole and rotate the crankshaft clockwise to top dead center. When there is pressure felt on the finger at the spark plug hole, this will be top dead center of the compression stroke on number one cylinder. If not, repeat the procedure. Install the number one spark plug.
  3. Mark the position of the distributor flange in relation to the camshaft housing. Remove the IIA distributor assembly.
  4. Remove the distributor cap with the wires attached, and remove the packing. Mark the position of the rotor relative to the housing and pull the rotor straight up and off the shaft. The distributor cap is held to the housing with three retaining screws.
  5. Remove the ignition coil dust cover.
  6. Remove the two nuts and spring washers and disconnect the four wires from the terminals on the side of the ignition coil. The wires are color coded yellow, blue, brown and red.
  7. Remove the four retaining screws and remove the ignition coil and packing.
  8. Remove the nuts and disconnect the pink, white and black wires from the igniter terminals. Remove the two igniter retaining screws and remove the igniter.

To install:
  1. Attach the new igniter with the two retaining screws. Connect the pink, black and white wires to their respective terminals and install the nuts. Make sure that the pick-up coil wires are secured in their clips and that there is slack in the wires.
  2. Install the ignition coil and attach it with the four retaining screws.
  3. Connect the four ignition coil wires to their respective terminals and install the two nuts and spring washers.
  4. Install the coil dust cover and push the rotor onto the shaft.
  5. Place the distributor cap and wires into position. Install and tighten the retaining screws.
  6. Install the distributor assembly and connect the negative battery cable.
  7. Connect a tachometer and timing light to the engine and adjust the ignition timing.


Fig. 1: Make sure you remember where the colored wires attach for installation-2S-ELC engine
  1. Reset any digital equipment such as radio memory and the clock if necessary.

  1. Remove the distributor cap, rotor and di-electric insulator covers. Disconnect the red and yellow wires from the coil and the pink, white and black wires from the igniter.
  2. Remove the igniter. It may be necessary to mark and rotate the distributor to gain access to the igniter retaining screws. The timing should be checked after the distributor is returned to the mark.

To install:
  1. Install the new igniter using the two new retaining screws.
  2. Twist the pick-up coil wires together, install the white wire first then pink and black wires to their original locations. Make sure the wires do not touch the housing generator or advance plate.
  3. Route the red and yellow wires from the igniter so they do not contact moving parts. Connect the red wire to the right coil terminal (with the brown wire) and the yellow wire to the left terminal (with the blue wire). Replace the covers, rotor and cap.
  4. Connect a tachometer and timing light to the engine and adjust the ignition timing.

Hope this helped (remember comment and rated this).

No brake lights and signal or heater fan just quit

The tilt collum moving up and down sometimes pulls the wires out of the switches in the streering collum. But that doesn't explain the heater going out. The battery connections are the first to cheack. There may be other things that don't work that you haven't checked or don't know if there off even though. The battery may not be being charged by the altenator. The underhodd fuse rely center needs checked to see ifd everythings working or not. The heater has a fuse in the underdash fuse panel This panel is known to fail where the fuses plug into the panel and may need repaired or replaced. The covers come off the steering collum with screws though the bottom Phillips or torx 15 With the covers off inspecte the wires on the left top as they pulg into the turn signal switch. The wires pull out of the plug. Unplug the connewctor and check that all the wires are fullly seated in the plug and the locks that hold the wires break. The plug socket is available from Ford and the ones I;ve changed they had in stock. The part number for the plug is right on the part and your parts guy at ford will reconize the part number. The wire harness pulls down in the collumand needs pulled back up and held so this doesn't hapen again

Look directly behind the headlight box if there is a rubber sleave covering the plug take it off. Unplug the wires from the bulb, there may be a saftey clip you will have to pry up to get it off.after you get the plug off the bulb holder should twist counterclockwise then it will pull right off.When you change the bulb just remember to wipe your body oil off the bulb before attaching it back into the headlight box. Then plug it back in and your in business. The high beam has three wires and the low beam has two wires. The bulb will have to be the right one.

Trailer wiring diagram

Either buy an adapter that will go into your existing harness, usually up under, near rear bumper, you pull connector apart & put adapter in line, then you plug new flat4 into it. Otherwise I would pull inside covers of both tailights, use a 12 VDC light tester, and probe wires at right signal for flashing with blinker,and attach Green wire, from flat4 to it. Do same on left side & attach yellow flat 4 to it. Turn off blinkers, and just put your running lights on, Find wire with power on either side when running lights on, and attach brown flat 4 to it. Now find some clean metal in the area and attach white wire (ground) to it. Put inside covers back on & your done.
