Why did the red flashing alarm light stop flashing? Alarm and remote working fine

Most likely the 12 volt led light burned out.. all bulbs LED too don't last.. Find the 2 wires usually Black and red and check for 12 volts with the alarm set and if you have 12 volts,. you need to go to radio shack and see if they still have 1. 2 volt led bulbs.. Good luck.

51`s were positive ground and 6 volts. count the battery caps. if there is 3 caps its 6volts, if there is 6 caps its 12 volts. sometimes if its not original someone may have converted it 12 volts.

1995 Dodge Stratus Error codes 12, 13, 14, 24, 26, and 33. What do each of these mean?

Code 12 is only displayed when outputting "flash codes" (Cycling the key and watching the Check Engine Light flash) - it mostly indicates that the diagnostic system is functioning properly. There is only a problem if you don't get this code.

Codes 13 and 14 are both MAP Sensor codes.

Codes 24 and 26 are both Secondary Air Switching Solenoid codes.

Code 33 is an A/C Presure sensor circuit code.

Flash codes are pretty generic. They tell you that there is a failure in a particular system, but they don't specify what type of failure. Flash Code 14 for example, can mean that the Map Sensor Voltage is too high or it can mean that it is too low, or it can mean that the 5 volt reference voltage is shorted to ground.

"P-codes" (The kind you must have a scanner to get) however, are more descriptive. Those will give you a more accurate description of what exactly is the problem with the system that has failed.

I will advise you however, that all of these codes can be caused by a shorted VREF. (5 Volt Reference Circuit) Find out where it is shorted and you will most likely fix all of these codes with one repair.

2002 mini cooper non turbo. Replaced head gasket, cranks good, fuel pump turns on, no codes on scanner. No spark at plugs, all fuses good. Was in a light wreck at some point and airbags deployed. ...

No spark means that it has a problem in the HT coil that converts 12 volts to 12000 - 15000 volts to create spark. Have you run it long distances? Like 50 or more miles? Does it stop or stutter?

1951 plymouth cranbrook 12 volt system conversion

Purchase a one wire (12 volt) alternator,and install it,and it uses one wire only,the out put wire to the battery from the back of the alternator.Then replace all lamps,and bulbs with 12 volt replacements.Disconnect the voltage regulator completely.The radio,if original,will need a voltage reducer,purchase a coil resister to put in line on the positive input to the radio.This coil resister will reduce the voltage to 7 volts,witch will be fine.The starter will work fine,leave it alone.All dash lights will have to be changed also,to 12 volt bulbs.You can find these replacement parts at any N A P A auto parts store.The resister is a part number irc 13,and the alternator will end in a sw,this means single wire.

325i not starting

Generally that means the battery is to low or the starter draw is too high.
Try a different batter or charging the one you have. Put a volt meter on the battery next time you try it.
It should read 12.5 volts about, with everything off. When you try to start, it should drop to about 10 volts. When you stop trying, it should come back to 12 at least. If it drops below 10, something is wrong. If it does not come back to 12, it is probably the battery. It is drops below 10 and does not come back to 12, it is probably the starter.
Oh, and make sure the engine can turn over by hand, just to ensure it is not locked up.

I have a 39 ford 6 volt battery operated car. I

you need a voltage doubler circuit which feeds from your 6V DC system and converts it to AC and steps it up and converts it to 12V DC. This device might be difficult to find. OR use a 6Vdc power inverter and just use a 120volt AC fan if much easier to source out in your area.
You might want to try a 12VDC high speed fan and see if the 50% reduced speed is already sufficient for you.
