I have somewhat of the same problem but not really. I would check the fuse but you have probably done that. I would run new medium grade wire from powerpoint ( 12V source ) that is hooked up to your ignition. Then run to your choke wire. you can also do a manual set of the choke to get it started. My choke doesn't work at all and needs to be replaced. Having the same starting problem though.

How to fix headlights they wont come on at all and the switch/button wont light up as light indicator


Sorry Shannon but this is something best left to an automotive electrical repair shop. This is very complex with lighting control module controlling the lights . But if you want to try ,I suggest you go to youtube an check out some videos on basic electrical trouble shooting , how to read wiring diagrams , voltage drop testing . Then buy a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter . Go to http://bbbind.com/free_tsb.html , You can get free wiring diagrams there.

Diagram for wiring for break lights on rav4 1996


The AutoZone website may have a wiring diagram in the sites self help repair section.

If you have a voltmeter check for voltage and ground continuity at the bulbs. Check for voltage before and after the brake switch (operate the switch). If you don't have a voltmeter connect something up with a 12V bulb.

If you have voltage after the switch (when operated) but none at the bulb might check the brake/tail light sensor. This is the actual sensor box located in the trunk, drivers side. The sensor can fail resulting no brake lights.

There have been various posts at this forum on the sensor, suggest you do a site search to find these and review them.

But first start checking for voltage.

84 ford f150 carburetor was rebuilt runs great when cold kicks and bucks when warm have to stomp on throttle to get to go


Sounds as if your choke is hanging up, or not opening at all. With the engine warm remove the air cleaner, there is a butterfly valve right inside the top of the carburetor If this is closed or mostly closed your choke needs to be adjusted. There are manual and electric chokes, yours should be an electric choke. First with engine cold and the key turned to on check for voltage at the choke wires. If you have voltage, then you might just need to adjust your choke. Electric chokes heat up an element inside the choke to tighten a spring and open the choke butterfly valve at the top of the carburetor. There should be between 4 and 5 screws that hold a ring around the choke housing on the side of the carburetor with the wires going to it. While holding the round choke housing in place loosen all of the screws on the retaining ring. If you can feel the choke housing wanting to spin turn it the opposite way that it wants to turn. Do this in stages until your choke butterfly valve is open with the key turned on, or the engine warm. Hope this helps if you have more questions just ask.

Half the hoses are missing lot of open vacuum leaks choke wont operate truck missing wont crank cold


There should be a vacuum hose diagram on the underside of the hood. Try plugging any leaking hoses to get it to run decent first, could have a fouled spark plug for the missing problem or a bad spark plug wire. As for why it won't crank cold, is the battery any good? Has to be charged up good to crank the engine over and fire the spark plugs. As for the choke not working, is it electric? If so, check for power at the choke thermostatic housing, the round black thing, should have a wire going to it that needs power to warm up the choke thermostatic spring.

I have a motorhome make Honey 421S with a chevy 454. the choke light stays on, and it smells like a gas station after a ride. Consumes lots of fuel and I don't understand the vacuum system. Anyone can...


Update? If the Motorhome has a carburetor, its pretty old and has a P30 chassis. Gm makes the truck, Honey makes the camper. Check the electric choke and make sure it has power to it when the engine is running, if not check all fuses. I dont have a diagram to see where the choke gets power from. Make sure the choke pull off is working, its a little vac can on the right side of the carb, if it leaks, it wont pull the choke flap open. Anyone that works on Quadrajet Carbs can fix it for you.

And here's a load of wiring diagram including power seats: http://www.volvoclub.org.uk/tech/service/850/SystemWiringDiagrams.pdf

The above links are for '95 models, but as far as I know they're identical.
Get the multimeter out and start checking voltages :)
Good luck mate!
