SOURCE: I have a 1993 F-250 4x4 speedo stopped working and

Hi I just thought you might like to know that the VSS sensor(vehical speed sensor) on a 93 f250 is actually on the top center of the rear differential. It is basically a proximity type sensor not the old school gear and cable. It will take a 1/2" or 13mm wrench I believe to remove the single bolt holding it in and the it pulls out. I think they are around 25 bucks so it's cheap enough to fix the speed sensor.

SOURCE: 1995 chevy suburban headlights won't come on

Common for the wire harness on the switch to go bad. Inspect the wire harness where it clips on to the switch and look for any signs of damage.

The plastic heats up from the current running through the switch and causes it to melt and then you loose connection caused from melted plastic between the contacts from the harness to the switch.

There is a upgrade to the headlight harness which is larger then the ones that came with the Suburban to address this issues. You can get them at the dealer or NAPA i believe.

Good luck and keep us posted. Thank you for using fixya and stay safe.

Testimonial: "I replaced the turn signal switch which solved the problem. It was that. The headlight wires had melted at the connector. The pain is the new turn signal switch has a malfunctioning wiper component causing the wiper delay to turn on with out being on. Now I have to do it all over. "

I have a 1987 Nissan pickup. With no headlights plugged in, I get 12 volts of power to the headlight plugs. As soon as I plug headlights in, I get no power on the volt-meter.

Are the headlights working ? If so they would pull current thru the switch and leave nothing for the meter.
If not you could have a weak connection between the headlight switch and the source of power, including inside the switch. The connection could be good enough to power the meter but not good enough to power the lights.

My bmw 316i 1996 2door has accelaeration problems. when accelerating at approx 60-70mph slight slugishness for approx 0.05 sec every 3-4 sec, ive changed the airflow pipe from engine to mass meter and aso...


I am assuming your old air flow pipe was ripped ? If that was the case it can often damage the air mass sensor / meter, they are quite delicate on these cars. the other alternative would be the throttle control module although these raely go, do all the air pipes have a good tight seal around them? any air leaks will cause the car to be sluggish.

Hope this helps, as regard to the clocks not showing mileage is the back light lit up?

How easy is it to change the front left headlight on a 2004 Elantra . My knowledge maxs out at checking the oil.

  1. There is a shroud that has 3 push pins at the front and a 10 mm bolt at the rear that attaches to the top of the air cleaner box. Remove the bolt and the push pins, lift the shroud up and set it out of the way.
  2. There are 2 10 mm bolts at the top of the headlamp assembly and one at the bottom that you can see looking down between the radiator support and the battery. Remove the bolts. Now grab the assembly and carefully wiggle it forward as it will be a snug fit between the fender and bumper cover. Unplug the electrical connectors.
  3. Now you have the assembly free where you can move it around and actually see what you are doing! Turn the caps on the back of the headlamp counterclockwise until they stop and pull straight out. Now you should see the bulbs inside. Gently pull on the connector on the bulb to unplug it. Look at the retaining clip holding the bulb in its seat, note exactly how it is positioned, then unclip it from its holder and swing it out of the way. Pull the bulb out of the assembly.
  4. To install the bulbs, hold the bulb and put it back into the assembly, making sure to align the keyway on the bulb properly. Resecure the retaining clip and reconnect the bulb connector. Reinstall the caps by pushing in and turning clockwise until they stop.
  5. Now you are reversing the previous steps. Reconnect the assembly connectors, slide the assembly back into place and reinstall the 3 bolts, taking care not to overtighten them. We do not want to bust the plastic mounting tabs. Put the shroud back into place, and reinstall the push pins and bolt. Now turn on the headlamps, and check to make sure all lights are working.

check the fuse for the speedo, (fuse #35 interior fuse box) if it is ok the electronic speedo will need repair, this is a common problem since Ford went to electronic speedometers.
