SOURCE: 95 F150 wont crank

the starter should be replaced. The solenoid is kikcing the pinion out but there is no contact being made to turn the starter motor. I have the exact same truck and before i changed the starter used the old starter tap trick. Tap the starter casing with a hammer and it should start turning again. hope this was helpful for you. Good luck.

SOURCE: Enigine fail safe mode

I encountered the same problem, my engine fail safe mode light came on and shut the car down. I took my car to my mechanic and he found the solution to the problem. The car needed a throttle body cleaning and the fuel filter needed to be replaced. After having my truck serviced my mileage increased from 14.6 mpg to 15.4 mpg
ENGINE FAILED SAFE MODE WARNING LIGHT, GONE Total cost $86.45

Why wont the headights or running lights work on my 2002 Buick LaSabre?


There are several reasons why your headlamps an running lights don't work , the headlamp switch is a good one ,plus relays an the DIM - dash integrated module an associated wiring ! Here is how the headlamps work , right out of Buick factory service info !
The dash integration module (DIM) provides battery positive voltage to the signal circuits of the headlamp switch. The signal circuits include the headlamp switch headlamps on signal, the flash to pass switch signal and the high beam input. With the headlamp switch in the ON position, a ground path is available for the headlamp switch headlamps on signal circuit of the DIM through the headlamp switch. The DIM provides ground to either the headlamps high beam relay control circuit or the headlamps low beam relay control circuit of the low beam circuit. The position of the headlamp dimmer switch determines which relay control circuit has ground. The DIM supplies battery positive voltage to the relay control circuits, if the headlamps are necessary. The fuse block - underhood supplies battery positive voltage to both relay switch circuits. When the low beam relay control circuit is energized, current flow is to both low beam fuses and to the low beam headlamps. The headlamps have ground at G103 and at G401. When the headlamp high beam relay control circuit is energized, current flow is to both high beam fuses and to the high beam headlamps. The high beam circuit is divided into a left and right side circuit. The current flow of the left high beam is from the fuse to the left high beam lamp. From the lamp, the current flows to the normally-closed contact of the DRL relay to G103. The current flow of the right high beam is from the fuse to the right high beam lamp. From the lamp, the current flow is to ground at G401. When the headlamp dimmer switch lever is pulled toward the driver, the flash-to-pass switch closes. This grounds the DIM flash to pass switch signal circuit. In response to this input, the DIM energizes the HDLP HI BM relay. Both high beams remain on until the driver releases the switch handle. If the low beam headlamps were on during a flash to pass operation, the low beams remain on. The headlights may be switched to high beam with the opposite movement of the headlamp dimmer switch lever.
By running lights , do you mean park lamps or day time running lamps ?
Park, Tail, License and Marker Lamps
The park lamps, including the license lamps, are turned on when the headlamp switch is placed in the PARK or ON position or anytime the headlights are requested. The fuse block - rear supplies battery positive voltage to the switch contacts of the Park LP relay. When the headlamp switch is in PARK or in ON, the park lamp switch on signal circuit of the DIM has a ground path. The DIM provides battery positive voltage to the control circuit of the Park LP relay. When the park lamps and/or the tail lamps are ON, the DIM energizes the park lamp relay control circuit. This closes the switch contacts. Current flows from the Park LP relay to the LH PARK LP and the RH PARK LP fuses. From the fuse, the current flows to the park lamps. The left park lamps are grounded at G103, G401 and G402. The right park lamps and the right tail lamps are grounded at G103 and G401. The DIMR fuse supplies battery positive voltage to the license lamps and to the DIM instrument panel lamp fuse supply voltage - 1 circuit, for interior lamps dimming. The license lamps are grounded at G401.
The best advice I can give is that you take this to a ASE certified professional repair facility unless your a qualified automotive electric repair person !
Diagnostic Starting Point - Lighting Systems
Begin the system diagnosis with the Diagnostic System Check - Lighting Systems . The Diagnostic System Check will provide the following information:
?€¢
The identification of the control modules which command the system


?€¢
The ability of the control modules to communicate through the serial data circuit


?€¢
The identification of any stored diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and their status

The use of the Diagnostic System Check will identify the correct procedure for diagnosing the system and where the procedure is located.

97 buick century was running after jump started, when put in reverse it died and wont start when jump start, no chimes or lights come on at all


Dangerous practice to try & jump a near dead battery

Always try charging a battery, that is only a couple years
old & not run down more than two or three times

If the battery is dead & reads less than 12 volts, have a parts
store test it or just replace it.

Jumping a cars battery is not a fix for anything,so I fail to
see how your lost & have not addressed the battery issue,
so you can continue on with other testing,if needed

I have a 1994 Toyota Starlet EP82 the parking light, dashboard lights and fog lights don't work on low beam only on high beam. Can you please help?


a 84 or 94? ill answer with 1994
ok , not all problems get solved guessing, a real mech uses a thing
called a voltmeter and a thing called a schematic. to find the truth.
100% effective rate.

first off , are you in a USA car./ or canada,. must i guess?
and does it have the DRL option, key factor on all HL issues.
Daylight running lights (HL on all time )

parks lamps are a feature of low beams so is a victim.
so are dash dim-able lamps.
my guess is you posted to uSA 1984 Starlet but we dont have 94s here. no books either,
so get your own FSM for your country EP82
are you here> see wiki quote here. lots of variants would wide
and for sure lighting, lighting is control by LAWs of your imported
country, so not stating country (not one post in 8000 did) makes
answers, IMPOSSIBLE. even begging this , nets ZERO answers. ever. (odd that, very odd)
(eg. im in deep south USA)
quote
The Gi and GT featured twin round headlights and mesh grille, also known as quad headlights. These minor changes were only extended to Japan, Hong Kong, Indonesia, and New Zealand. Hong Kong received Japanese market Soleil L. The 1.3 SE-G continued in Indonesia, and the 1.3 GS replaced 1.3 S in New Zealand. Production in Japan ended in December 1995, but in Indonesia continued until March 1998.
(yes, complex)

if i had the car, and no books sold, id still have my meter.
and id find the cause.
the path is simple (no DRL)
there are 2 lighting systems. (ground switches or power switched)
most are power. (working blind , you need to know that)
blind = no fsm schematics.

1: car battery 12v
2: : got power to HL fuses? and past them 12v?
3: switch. (combo switch) id fix park first. turn to park.
power to HL switch good? y/n 12v.
4 got power 12v to output of switch, (park is good start)
yes,
got power to any park lamps (pick one? any one)
ok im at the lamp now.
5 i have 12v at the lamp but it down glow.
lamp burned out., no, they all fail .
so i measure the lamp ground to battery minus lug
oops its 12v.
the ground is open and all park lamps are dead.

ill stop here, if ground is bad , there are 3 more tests.

it has command start ???? Is this some kind of aftermarket add on ? This shouldn't have anything to do with the running lamps . unless someone hooked something up in correctly . Does the car have DRL - day time running lamps ? The Daytime Running Lamps (DRL) control module is designed to automatically operate exterior lights depending on outside light conditions.
The DRL control module operates in 2 modes:
• The day mode
In the day mode, the DRL control module turns ON the high beam headlamps at a reduced intensity when the DRL ambient light sensor detects daylight under the following conditions:
- The ignition switch is in the RUN position.
- The headlamps are OFF.
- The park brake is OFF (released).
• The low light mode
In the low light mode, the DRL ambient light sensor detects darkness, turning OFF the high beam headlamps and turning ON the low beam headlamps through circuit 10.
Additionally, the DRL ambient light sensor turns ON the following lamps through circuit 9:
- The park lamps
- The sidemarker lamps
- The license lamps
- The tail lamps

What you need to do there is to turn the ignition switch on and off three times, leaving it on the third time. Leave it on for about fifteen or twenty minutes and the light should become steady. then you can start the engine. (I usually put a jumper battery on it to make sure it does not knock down the battery too far) If that fails to work, then the problem likely is in the switch or the security module.

I don't know how old the battery is but just to make sure its ok have it load tested. If battery is good after load testing then have vehicle scanned for codes and see what ECU says about the fail safe lite( what made it come on). Lastly have codes removes and ECU reset.
Usually if you didn't have an electrical problem (battery dying) I would say the output shaft is worn time for a rebuild.
