Hi Lindsay

Emergency vehicles responding code 1 have no different speed limit laws than other users of the highway. Lights and sirens are simply used to warn you they're coming and give you some time to get out of the way. My wife has been a paramedic for nearly 30 years.

Where is flasher relay located?


Most of the newer relays are built into the emergency flasher button assembly. Check to see if the emergency flashers work. But, some are are located close to the kick panel on driver side. It will be a full fuse panel with a lot of relays and minimal fuses. I dont know exact location because I have worked on so many different vehicles.

I want to limit speed in a 3500 dodge 2014


This isn't a popular request but I did some research on this question and I have good news. You can have the ECU reprogrammed and have the speed limit reduced. The process will lower both the speed limit and the speed limit with the cruise control activated. For some reason Dodge, at this time, isn't involved in programming these vehicles, at least not in my area. But I contacted Cummins and they have purchased the software to perform this task. The service is about $250.00 and it takes an hour to do. You need to call Cummins (truck engine division) for an appointment. Any other questions please ask away and I'll do my best to help, good luck.

What would be wrong with my truck, i was driving one day and it dyed..i tryed to start it again and it woulkd run and drive but only let me go 20k, could it be my fuel filter????or what could it be????


Vehicles: Any vehicle unable to achieve highway speeds.

I agree with your assessment - the fuel system is almost always the culprit when a vehicle cannot exceed a given speed.

Priority Checks: fuel pump function has gone marginal, fuel filter clogged, in-tank fuel strainer clogged, fuel pressure regulator failure, fuel rail leaking, fuel injector electrical harness/connectors loose, faulty fuel injector(s)

Secondary causes: CKP (crankshaft position sensor), CMP (camshaft position sensor), ECC (Engine Control Computer)

Tertiary Checks: Oxygen sensor(s), catalytic converter plugged

Faulty sensor(s) or ECC would cause immediate performance problems/speed limitations due to engine mis-timing. Whereas fuel system problems would limit the vehicle's performance by limiting the fuel available to the engine.
A plugged catalytic converter (or other exhaust system constriction) would limit engine performance by restricting the ability of the engine to properly exhaust.

My jeep compass will no go past 60 mph. It is as if the turbo is not working.


Almost all new vehicles have what is known as speed limiter. Once a vehicle reaches a certain "max speed" as deemed by the manufacturor.. it will cut the power to your vehicle.
This is very common in new cars.

Does a 2002 Ford Explorer Sport have a "governor?" Just wondering because when the vehicle is in neutral or park the RPM will not go above 3000 but it will go higher if in drive.


This is called a rev. limiter. Most vehicles are equipped with these to prohibit over-revving in neutral and to protect the engine from damage. Its not a governor.

2003 f-150, 5.4liter is idling rough, an gives codes p0316,p1270


You didn't specify where you put the seafoam (oil, gas tank, vacuum lines etc) It's very possible that the fuel filter needs changing and the spark plugs may very well be fouled. After seafoaming a car it's a good idea to really open it up to burn off the foam and residue.

Adjusting the emergency cable. I have just installed new brake shoes, rotors and pads. Now the emergency cable doesn't work anymore. Could you please tell me how to adjust it so that my emergency brake...


it will be a simple wrench adjustment on the cable itself, the cable should run underneath the driver side of the vehicle. You will see an adjustment area with a cable connected to a piece of all-thread that has a nut on it, generally, tightening this setup tightens the cable, loosening looses up the cable
