My custom hardtail has sat for a while, now solenoid sticks when I push button

The best explanation on why it tickles when you push your belly button is that when the umbilical cord is cut, the nerves leading to it often "hook up" with other nearby places in the body, and that nerve causes the ticklishness when you touch the belly button. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

1999 gmc jimmy power windows locks mirrors wont work

If none of the mirrors or locks work, then you will very likely find a blown MIR/LCK Fuse #7 (10 Amp) in the underhood fuse block. If this is the case, you need to find out WHY the fuse blew because if you simply replace it, it will most likely do it again. Otherwise, the locks and mirrors also connect to the Body Control Module (BCM). I would recommend scanning the BCM for fault codes.

The windows are a completely separate circuit. They have nothing in common with the mirrors or locks other than than that they all ultimately get power from the battery and the circuits run through the umbilicals that go between the body and the doors.

If none of the windows are working, the most likely cause is an open power circuit or open ground circuit at the driver's door. This could be either a bad master control switch or is could be that the wires inside the umbilical are broken (fairly common).

I have a 2008 chevy cobalt. When i put the key in the ignition, there is a audible "ding" to let u know the keys are in. The audible "ding" would also be heard when u turned the...

The "ding" is made by the body control computer when the door is opened and the key is in the ignition or when the lights are left on and the door is opened. The only thing in common with the door speaker is that they happen to run through the same wiring harness to the door. Other than that, they are TOTALLY different circuits.

However, there is a possibility that the wires are broken in the umbilical that goes between the door and the body. The only way that these two things could be even remotely related, is if you have at least 2 broken wires in there.

NOTE: each circuit should be diagnosed separately. If it is found that there in fact is a broken wire inside the umbilical, ALL the wires in the umbilical should be inspected for damage. This may also fix the other problem, but not necessarilly.

A scan of your Body Control Computer should also be performed, even if not for any other reason than to clear any fault codes created by a possible broken wire.

All windows stopped what does that

If none of the windows work - i.e. none of the windows will go up or down from any switch in the vehicle - what I would look for is a break in the Light Blue and Black wire that goes through the umbilical from the body to the drivers door. All of the windows are powered by this wire and it is common for wires to break inside the umbilical due to flexing back and forth every time the driver's door is opened and closed.

I have a 98 Windstar none of the power windows work. Door locks work. I checked fuses I have cleaned the switch contacts if i put power to motor it works.

OK, so looking at this logically, it would make sense that the window motors are not getting power....If the fuses are good, then where is the power failure?
Firs of all, the main power for the window motors comes from a 30 Amp circuit breaker in the Engine Compartment Fuse Box....not a fuse. This supplies power to the Delayed Accessory Relay located in the Instrument Panel Fuse Block, which in turn provides the power to the driver's door master window switch.
If I were working on this vehicle, I would check for battery voltage at connector Pin #6 (Blue/Black wire) at the driver's door master switch. If there is no power there, then I would check for power at the relay terminals. With the key in the RUN position there should be 2 of the Delayed Accessory Relay pins with battery voltage. If one of these is missing, then you will have to look toward the circuit breaker and the battery. (There is also the Generic Electronic Module and the Battery-Saver Relay involved in this.)

If there is power on two pins of the Delayed Accessory Relay , then the most likely cause of your problem would be that the Blue/Black wire is broken inside the umbilical where it goes between the body and the door.

If there is power at the Blue/Black wire at the driver's door master switch, then your problem is probably ground-related. The solid Black wire in pin #7 at the driver's door switch goes through the umbilical to ground # G202, which is located at the left side kick panel area under the dash. This wire could likely be broken inside the umbilical also.

Is power steering flush necessary

Yes ! Most power steering fluids are corrosives, that absorb moisture and eventuallyl loose their preservatives and cause foaming and eat away at seals throughout the pump and rack of the steering system. Flushing the system out as per the owner's manual recommendation helps in avoiding any expensive repairs
and inconviences with the power steering system.

1995 grand am tcc selonoid sensor how do i find it to unplug it

You have to drop the transmission pan and transmission filter to see where the TCC lives. It's part of the Governor Body, so unplugging it vs. replacing it? I'd replace it or get the part and have a transmission shop do it while they're doing a normal transmission service for they have to adjust the front and rear bands anyway. You could unplug the TCC from outside of the transmission, however that will burn it up since your over-drive and governor will also be unplugged by the umbilical cord going into the transmission.

Driver's window will not operate all of a sudden... was working well this morning... what could be the issue?

It could be anything from a broken wire in the umbilical cable between the door and the body to a bad switch to a bad window lift motor and/or window regulator.
