Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

Have a pre lit Christmas tree with several branches out. I tried to replace the white fuse bulb to see if that would fix a particular branch and it immediately blew the new fuse bulb.

SOURCE: Check engine light flashing. Tried to get code. No

pull the connector off the lighter--they are notorious for shorting out. If that doesn't work, get back to me and I'll look up the wiring diagram for more ideas.

well they are almost impossible to straighten without breaking most likely it will snap off and you may need to replace the whole auto antenna unit ( not to exppensive if you can fit it) best of luck you can try straighten it if you want.... best of luck p.s if you try straighten i would recommend using pliers to squeeze the antenna back into shape at the bottom of the bend just be careful not to squish it flat etc.....

SOURCE: 2001 Chevy 1/2 express van.A vacuum line under

The vacuum line from the engine's intake manifold goes to a vacuum reservoir ball under the hood; from there a vacuum line leaves this reservoir, passes through the firewall and connects to the mode control switch.
The mode switch directs vacuum to actuators that position the doors to the desired vents. When there is no vacuum the doors are pulled by springs to a rest position; defaulting back to defrost.

The vacuum reservoir is used to store vacuum when the engine is under load and not producing large amounts of vacuum. The inlet vacuum line may have a check valve; stopping vacuum from going back to the engine. Make sure that this valve (if there) will only allow vacuum to pass through it in one direction.

The lines that control the AC and heater all pass through the firewall and some are up around where the wipers are if there are no lines coming out of the firewall except the one by the brake booster then simply plug the line coming off the T with a screw and see if that restores your vacuum to the controls. You may just be leaking so much your controls arent working. These lines that run around the manifold tend to disenegrate over time and with out seeing the issue I have to guess that the one unconnected line is either broken off and should connect to something withing its length or the hose itself could be cracked in half which leaves the other half hanging out there somewhere.
You might need to remove the center console & the engine cover in order to access the main vaccum line that is right in front of the PCV valve on the driver's side of the engine. Make sure you have a really long flat head screw driver to remove the two slotted bolts on the engine cover on the firewall. Also, since the placement of the vacuum hose is definitely a design flaw as it cannot stand up to the heat of the engine for more than a few years without degrading the line, make sure you invest in a heat shield wrap or another larger vacuum hose to engulf the replacement hose & to act as a heat shield. I recommend replacing all of your AC vacuum hoses at the same time

SOURCE: I ran over a tree branch and I now have a hissing

that all depends on what all got damaged, if just a fitting came loose or if the actual line was broken, it could be a small leak in a radiator lower hose,, which would be something completely different cost wise,, I suggest you have the car checked,, most shops will do that for free,,

I have a 15-20 ft. pine tree. We recently trimmed alot off the bottom of it and now the healthy branches on the tree are turning brown. Is my tree dying?

Pine trees seal themselves with sap fairly quick so you don't have to worry. If the needles are turning yellow and dropping it could be experiencing some shock or it may just be dropping needles for the fall.
If the needles are actually turning brown, check the trunk and branches for signs of boring insect damage such as hole with sap coming out.

The lights on 3 of my lower branches will not light. How do I fix this?

Talking about the cluster/ instrument panel? You would have to pull the panel to replace the bulbs. Newer models have to remove and replace the diodes.

Electrical issue?

say what lights exactly , the cab of cars can have 20 freakn lights.
stop guessing, please, and huge costs an labor, !!

you car has what is called dark current.
you saw the light fai,l in the dark, and ignored that.
that IS The problem , it flattened the battery , that is NORMAL.
Normal for and illegal DRAIN.

ok, I see lamps on, key off. HL switch off. Head Lights (HL)
so , i pull fuses 1 by one, and bingo X fuse kills the lamp(s).
i trace that fuse path only ,using my ammeter.

here is a phantom drain page.
shows 3 ways to trace it, best is an ammeter.

think of a car electrics as a tree.
and one branch as a problem?. the fuse protects each branch
from catching fire. and allows you to measure the current on each branch very easy.;
we use the ammeter to find which twig is shorted (switch closed in error or , a real short, of random happenstance_)
is this better/
good luck to you and do ask any questions. (how to, on all)

I bought a target pre-lit christmas tree but half of it wont light up even though its all plugged.How do we fix it?

trystarting from the point that bulbs aren't working,take one of the replacement bulbs that usually come with the lights and replace them one at a time.just one replacement bulb to start then the one you took out put it in the next until either it lights up or you reach the last unlit bulb,but hopefully you dont get to the end because if you do then there's more then one bulb thats faulty. I've had that happen alot so dont give up..If the lights are on two separate wiring check for a glass fuse hidden on either ends of plug(wall or tree) I hop that helps.
