    Before I order the timer, I would like to confirm conclusively that it is not something else?
    I have noticed when the 'sensor dry level' is activated does the problem persist.
    All other functions like air fluff, timed, and dewrinkle work.

Sounds like the timer needs to be replaced. This also controls the cycles. It is common for them to go bad. daysappliance or partselect . com is your best bet.

    You can test the timer with an ohmmeter by testing the resistance. The ohmmeter should be on the rx1 setting. You can test the timer in each mode/setting.

07 mini change the cam sensor and timing code keep come back on saying timing to far advance

possibly not the sensor but the hydraulic adjuster that controls the cam timing
the cam sensor reports the cam position in relation to engine rpms and the ECM adjusts the cam position by the hydraulic servo / solenoid to the preset cam position for that rpms
I suspect that the problem will be in that servo / solenoid

1998 s-10 security light

If the security light is hot or flashing when the key is in the on position, most likely the ignition key tumbler housing has failed.

You can try resetting the pass code by turning the ignition switch to the on position (do not crank or start the engine). Leave the key in the on position for 10 minutes. Turn the key to the off position, wait 5 seconds and turn the key to the on position again and leave it on for 10 more minutes. Cycle the key to the off position again for 5 seconds the back on for a final 10 minutes. Once the final 10 minutes is complete, turn to the off position again, wait 5 seconds and now turn the ignition on and to the start position. The pass code has now been reset and it should start. If the reset does not work you will have to change the ignition key tumbler housing that contains the key code resistor.
Good luck

My van is over heating and i think my thermostat is bad.i need a location for were it is on the engine

The thermostat is located in the thermostat housing, which is mounted to the coolant crossover tube. The bypass hose is connected to the thermostat water inlet on one end, and to the intake manifold water outlet on the other. The thermostat is not located in the intake manifold water outlet, where the upper radiator hose is connected.

  1. Drain the radiator and recycle the engine coolant.
  2. Remove the upper radiator hose bracket bolt and remove the bracket.
  3. On 1993-98 3.0L engine models:
    1. Remove the bolt from the A/C high pressure line bracket at the front of the engine.
    2. Remove the two A/C accumulator/drier bracket bolts.
    3. Position the accumulator/drier and A/C line out of the way.

  4. Remove the bypass hose clamp and remove the hose from the water inlet.
  5. Remove the four water inlet bolts and remove the inlet.
  6. Remove the thermostat from the inlet.

To install:
  1. Clean and dry the water inlet and thermostat housing mating surfaces.
  2. Apply a continuous bead of RTV silicone sealant 0.08-0.12 inch (2.0-3.0mm) wide to the water inlet mating surface.

NOTE The water inlet must be installed within 5 minutes of applying the sealant.

  1. Install the thermostat in the water inlet, with the jiggle valve at the topmost (12 o'clock) position.
  2. Install the water inlet to the thermostat housing. Install the bolts and tighten them to 12-15 ft. lbs. (16-21 Nm).
  3. Install the bypass hose to the water inlet, using a new clamp.
  4. On 1993-98 3.0L engine models:
    1. Install the accumulator/drier and tighten the bracket bolts to 45 inch lbs. (5 Nm).
    2. Install the A/C high pressure line bracket and tighten the bolt to 45 inch lbs. (5 Nm).
    3. Install the upper radiator hose bracket and tighten the bolt to 34-48 ft. lbs. (46-65 Nm).

NOTE Allow the sealant to dry for at least 30 minutes before adding coolant.

  1. Fill the cooling system. Run the engine and check for leaks.
