Well I would verify that the GFCI outlet is functioning properly. It is possible that the outlet is defective. If the outlet is good then the dishwasher is causing a significant electrical draw due to a possible internal electrical short.

    There is a tool that electricians use to test the outlet. I would try hooking up something that draws a lot of amps but should not trip it like say a hair dryer. If it trips when you turn it on try replacing the GFCI outlet.

My swift wants to start but wont kick over?


which engine? of the many and want country. ?
some are even diesel.
there are 3 phases to this.
cranking robustly
starts
and runs. and may stall soon after. or not.
at what point does this process fail.

if it dont crank we diagnose th starter system.
it fails to start (we check spark , then fuel) if both ok we check for lost compression (cam timing belt slipped>?)
if it stalls, lots more test.. over 50 causes.
this is what a tech does, diagnose. saving lots of time guessing and buying un-needed parts.
tell more, get more. but what engine.'

A/C kicks off and recirc light comes on


AC clutch is going to the dogs. Or the high pressure switch is giving it up. This is assuming AC belt is not slipping. Also check the system charge as it may need recharging.

sounds like a ecm issue. Had the same problem with my 1995 wrangler and the time you had to let it sit before fuel pump kicked in got longer and longer until it wouldn't kick in at all. Ordered a rebuilt computer online and after i installed it i kicked right over.

Wont start


Would you like to try an explain a little better ? If the engine doesn't spin when you turn the key to start ,what good would pouring fuel into the engine through the throttle plate? Plus if the engine does spin when turning the key to start why in heII would you bang on the starter ! I would say from your post you don't know a heII of a lot about cars ! Do yourself a favor an take it to a qualified repair shop before you hurt yourself .

1996 Nissan Maxima won't start at times when it is hot outside


You must verify first the problem, If the solenoid kick when you turn the key the problem is in the contact in sol. . If nothing kick you get a wire to direct the sol. wire to the battery if it kick. Then your problem is in the relay of starter. If the stater did not run, the problem is in stater the carbon brushes might be worn out.

I have a 1997 Lincoln continental.When I turn on the a/c I can hear the compresser kick in but it goes right back off and the whole time the ac is running it keeps trying to kick in but keep cutting off. I...


It will be in the yellow section if the compressor isn't running. Go ahead and hook up the gauge. When the compressor kicks on the pressure should drop to below 15 and then the compressor should kick off. Is it doing this? If yes go ahead and add freon. The yellow section means the pressure is high but you only have to worry about it if the gauge reads in the yellow with the compressor kicked on.
