Hi, can any one give me procedure for replacing one of the front panel rocker type switches on a Dimplex Horton HTN20 (OLDER TYPE) electric fire.


switches in any electrical circuit only do one thing--either allow the 'juice' to flow, or to interupt/stop it. Having never seen the item in question, I need to know how many wires are on this switch. If it is a SPST (single pole, single throw) there will be TWO wires--one will be the feed, the other the carrier to take the juice somewhere else when the switch is thrown (closed.) More complicated switches can have multiple connections (more than two wires) which allows various paths for the juice to flow. It's pretty rare to find a replacement switch that is an exact match for the one that is 'bad', but if you have a Dremel tool, you can always modify the opening to make something else fit. The hardware stores sell a moldable putty that hardens like epoxy, to glue a smaller switch into a 'too big' hole.

Why would i get fire from the coils and not throuh the dis.to the plugs wires to the plugs. I change the cam senor and crank senors


Coil wires are probably original. Replace coil wire and spark plug wires. If those are original I bet the coil is also.

Distributor not firing


We need to know what you mean by "proper power". There is a wire from the distributor to the coil which carries 12 volts and another from the coil to the distributor that carries upwards of 16 000 volts. The first is a thin one which allows the points to fire the coil, the other is the thicker high tension wire that comes from the coil to be distributed to the plugs.
If you have fire on the high tension wire but no fire on any of the plug wires, you have either a bad rotor or a cracked distributor cap or even the little carbon thingamajig inside the distributor cap might be broken or missing.
If your truck has a points ignition, you might have a bad condenser (capacitor) or the points are not set to the right specification (about 16 to 18 thou)
Check that the points are not burnt, which will also indicate a bad condenser.
You might reason that there is noting wrong with the points or condenser, but you can still get a nice spark which looks good, but is not sufficient to do the job.
The distributor cap might have a crack that you can't see with the eye, but a small crack will give you endless headaches.
Replacing the whole distributor is a very very very last fix.

Blown globe after spotlights conected


The way that you connected up the spot lights is incorrect and the combined current draw for the head light and the spot light exceeded the fuse capacity. The way to do it is to use the head light wire to trigger a relay for the spot lights that gets the power directly from a fused wire from the positive terminal of the battery. It works like this --you turn on the head lights ---power flows to the head lights and at the same time though the points coil in the relay to earth . this closes the points and allows power from the battery to light up the spot lights.

WHAT IS VOLTAGE FROM PCM TO COIL


I am assuming you have the 4.0 engine with no distributor.
The red and lite green wire to the coil is battery voltage (12VT) from the key switch. The three yellow wires are from the PCM and will be something less than 6 volts or grounds. They signal the coil when to fire the plugs.

I want to wire 2 driving lamps into my discovery


Instal a relay (preferably in a mounting socket); Wire one side of the control coil to the +12v mainbeam 'on' circuit.
Take the other relay coil control connection to the additional 'Driving-lamp on' control switch (switched to ground).
Supply relay contacts 'common' with a fused +12V from battery - use wire with sufficient current carry capacity to feed driving lights. Connect switched +12V output to the driving lamps.

Replaced ingnition module still no fire what do I look for next?


check the coil resistance ,also check coil wire, make sure that with key on that the posative side of the coil does have 12 volts. if power is there probably coil if no power at coil check ign fuse and possibly the ignition switch not feeding power out

My HHO generator draws too many amps, how do i get the amps down?


1st thing to check is the electrolyte: Use white vinegar, NOT baking soda or lye. Use a minimum of 12 ga wire on all connections, and power the generator through a relay using a 30A fuse to feed a 40A relay.Install a Tap-a-line connector from the radio circuit of the fuse panel to the toggle switch, then run a 14ga wire from the toggle switch to the relay. Doing this ensures that the generator is energized ON LY when the ignition switch is turned on. The 12ga feed wire to the relay should connect directly to the positive terminal on the battery. The 14ga wire from the switch is used only to activate the relay. This way the relay carries the amperage to the generator, and it does not pass through the switch. If the amperage is still too high, use less vinegar and use more steam distilled water to lessen the concentration, therefore lowering the amperage draw. All the parts required for this hook-up can be obtained at AutoZone, Oreilly's, etc. Good luck.
