Hi Greg
Could be Contacts overheating.
Clean the contacts. Check any ventilation.
Sizziling / Arcing contacts can also overheat & cause fire!

Which Online Store Is The Best For Buying LED Fixtures?

LED Light Expert is the best store to go for. A few months back I was looking for substitutes for my 400 Watt Metal Halide Led Retrofit and wanted a high quality store to buy it from. An online search helped me find this store and choose from a wide variety of 400 Watt Metal Halide LED Replacement lights that come in varying lumens. There are many options and I chose 4 - 5 lights for my home and that of my GF. It is 11 months now and the fixtures are still doing great. Both of us loved the quality and the illumination is fantastic. My GF also bought a couple of LED Shoe Box Lights for her yard and these are great as well. Each light is offered in superior quality and comes with a 7 - 10 year long warranty. You can check out the web store -

Saturn ion not starting in cold weather

We cut the white wire on my son's 2005 ION and followed a youtube video. He said to remove the airbag fuse first. After we cut the wire and put the airbag fuse in, now the airbag light is on. I can't get it fixed for beans. So now he has a security light and airbag light on. He has been in several accidents and the airbags never came out anyway so I guess he will have to drive that way. It did start last night no problem in 30 degree temperature!

Dash lights don't work 1992 jeep wrangler

try turning the headlight knob left to right several times, and jiggle the switch at night. Also check your fuse panel should be a 10 amp or less fuse that says "Insr" or something like it.

Airbag Light Stays on when hot outside, but not when cool outside

My experience with this issue, (and I have seen it before, several times), is a poor connection at either side front seat belt connectors. You should pull off the center trim panel, to expose the bottoms of the seatbelts, and plug/unplug/replug the connector 10-12 times; there is a known issue on poor connections on the seat belt wiring harnesses. Just replugging it works pretty good.

Situation 91 Fuel_fire_bird what a surprise i'm sure..haha!

Sounds like the Ignition Control Module inside the distro. cap. It might run fine when cold, but once it gets hot it causes trouble. Take the control module an auto parts store and they should be able to test, like Autozone.
