What is the long wire inside an Ersa TCD800 soldering iron controller? Mine has vaporized!

There are two controller boards inside the controller box - one is for the hot tweezers, and one is for the soldering iron. My iron went short circuit while I was removing the tip. The tweezers still work ok.

I have not seen this at all, your car is the first I have heard of it, I thought you only said the plastic was melted, but the fuse should have blown after reading your further comment. If you are still under warranty, raise cain

There is a "Fuseable Link" in one of the battery cables. They're available at most automotive parts stores.

SOURCE: E240 Year 2000 problem with gear box

The electrical connector "o" rings leak on the 722.6 transmissions and there is an updated "o" ring. If you remove the connector by sliding the lock upwards there is a 7mm. bolt holding the housing onto the vavle body plate located in the center of the pin connector on trans. Remove that 7mm. and pull housing out of trans. there are 2 "o" rings on the pin connecter and one on the harness connector. M.B. sells the 2 for the pin connector and the harness connector comes with the hole connector but you have to remove all the pins out of the old one. The harness connector is not the problem just replace the 2 on the transmission pin connector. Make sure you add M.B. electrohydraulic trans. fluid to the transmission. You will have to purchase a dipstick from the dealer because there is onlya housing tube. The trans has a red color lock and the oil a black color lock. They are right next to each other so be careful not to confuse the 2. I have seen them leak bad enough to fill the trans computer full of oil- The E.T.C. module is located in the r.f. foot well in the false floor under carpet. I do not know what circuit board you are refering to. I'm assuming it is the valvebody solonoid plate. After repair I would recommend having the car scanned and cleared for codes assuming the module is not full of a.t.f.. You may be able to clear the codes by disconnecting battery neg. for at least an hour to drain capacitors but it is always best to have car scanned. Good luck

SOURCE: How do you remove the dash board around the gauges

Not 100% sure on that but normally the trim that surrounds the cluster will pull off, if no screws or buttons covering screws are obvious, then you 'll have access to screws holding cluster in.

Are you sure you have no power. When a fuel pump fails you will still have power for 3 seconds when the key is cycled.. You only have power on full time when the engine is running

Doesn't start when hot outside,can't here fuel pump engage,flashing d4.starts fine when its cool outside and runs fine.


When it's hot inside your car it causes a solder joint on a little circuit board in your Main/Fuel Relay to loose contact. The MAIN RELAY is up above your gas pedal near the cruise control computer. Almost directly behind the dash vent opposite of your coin drawer. It will be a gray or brownish/orange box with a plug of wires connected to it. Use a 10mm socket (with extensions to reach) to move the metal cruise control unit out of the way and tap the Relay, "Plastic Box", while someone tries to start the car. If you can bring it down into better view you can tap it and start the car if you're flexible.

TO FIX THE PROBLEM: Don't buy a new one, just pry the cover off of it with a flat head screwdriver and look close where all the sharp pins are sticking up on the board to find the broken solder connection(s). Heat the faulty pin with a soldering iron until the solder puddles around it and your good to go. The crack in the solder will be smaller than a human hair, look close & wiggle it and you'll see the loose connection. There is usually no need to add solder, what is there is enough, it just needs melted again. Works every time on the Accord, Prelude, Civic and Integra.

Toyota 04 Highlander Temp Control Problem


Hello. Thank you for requesting me. We have been seeing a large amount of Highlanders with temperature control issues. A replacement control is in the proximity of 900 dollars. After the fifth one sold, and some really unhappy customers, I decided to see what the issue was that was causing the failures. It turns out that the problem is nothing more than a broken wire of two. If you are handy with tools, and can use a soldering gun, you can fix it yourself. The problem with the controls needing replacement is a broken wire or two at the circuit board that controls the temperature (the center knob). This is unfortunately common, albeit an expensive repair. Here is how you can fix it yourself: What you will need: Pencil-type soldering iron, rosin core solder, a Phillips screwdriver, a 10 millimeter socket, extension and ratchet. First, remove the plastic fascia that surrounds the radio/heater-AC control. (Be careful to not crack it when removing it.) Next, remove all of the 10 millimeter bolts that holds the Radio/AC-heater control assembly to the dash panel, and unplug all of the wiring connectors. Next, remove the three control knobs on the Heater/AC control panel, and the silver nuts that holds the controls to the panel. They pull straight off. (Under the center knob, you will probably find a loose nut, this is what caused the wires to break, the control is loose in its holder.). Next, turn the assembly over, with the back facing upwards. You will see a rectangular black box. Remove the screws that hold the black box onto the back side of the front of the control panel. There will be a ribbon-wire connector that will need to be removed from the front panel; be careful when removing the black box?s connection, and take care to not damage the connection ribbon wires. Next, remove the entire circuit board from the panel cover, by removing several Phillips screws, this will allow easier access to the control board that needs the wire(s) soldered. At this point, you have two choices: You can solder the broken wire back onto the control?s board, or, if you desire, you can remove the ribbon wire, and replace it with different wires; personally, I choose this path, and I use telephone wire, three lengths, that I strip and solder to both locations, each of the three on the main board and the other end on the control board. Either way will work, as long as you solder the wires back properly, and avoid any possible shorts by allowing the solder to touch an adjacent lead. Once you have soldered the broken wires from the temperature control board back on to the main circuit board; reassemble the parts and refit it assembly to the dash. Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance today; I hope that this helps you out, and saves you a bunch of money.

No igntion fuel pump not on


First check all fuses related to ignition. If that all checks out good, then, understand that solder joints on a little circuit board in your Main/Fuel Relay can crack leaving loose contacts. The MAIN RELAY is up above your gas pedal. Almost directly behind the dash vent. It will be a gray or black box with a plug and wires connected to it. Use a 10mm socket (with extensions to reach) to move the metal cruise control unit out of the way and tap the Relay, "Plastic Box", while someone tries to start the car.

The display screen (LED READOUT) on the climate control module intermittently fades to black. Tapping the front of the module will temporarily cause the display to "light up". How do I remove this module...


I had the same problem on my 03 Park Avenue.
I removed the "wood" trim, removed the two screws from tabs on sides of module, then did a little plasic bending to get it out. At first it didn't want to move, so I gently pried the top out with a screwdriver.
Once out, I disconnected the one plug from the back.
I then took it to my workbench (kitchen counter) and removed the 2 screws holding it together, then unsnapped the 2 snaps and it came in half with a single plug going to the circuit board connecting the two halves. Just pry up on the plastic inner part and it will easily unplug. The circuit board is held in by 2 plastic snaps a the back. Just pry them out and slip the board out. Once out and in the daylight, look at the 4 cyclindrical (mine were tan) components with a single lead coming out each end. Mine had cold (gray in color) solder joints, unlike all the other compontents that had nice shiny joints.
To fix, simply get a pencil type soldering iron and some rosin core solder. Heat the old solder till it melts, then tap or blow to remove some of it (don't go nuts trying to do it perfectly)..or for that matter, don't even try to remove the components (think they are resistors, but not sure). Now heat the component lead and the hole it goes into simultaneously. Once it's all good and hot, touch your solder to the hole, it will melt if it's hot enough. Go on the the other 7 leads/holes and do the same.
Once done, reassemble in reverse order.
My total cost was about an hour, $3.95 for soldering iron, $1.35 for solder.
Result: I now always know the outside temp, my climate control settings and the way I have air flow adjusted. It was a snap. Good luck!

4ws light will not go out have changed computer but still on


Probably both computers are faulty. Old age and vibrations crack the relay soldered joints inside the comuter (behind rear seat). Sometime invisible cracks, so resolder all relay connections to the board. Disconnect battery; remove rear seat (LHS - two pull-clips under front of seat)) and seat back; unbolt wires etc, unbolt steelwork & computer; open computer case; circuit board with copper strips to it has two black boxes (relays; remove this circuit board & resolder relay-to-circuit board joints. Check other circuit board for bulging capacitors & replace as required with same values. Probably cure all ills - cured all mine!
