The spedo is electronic and works with a sensor located in the tranny case you can see it right by the starter end its the black plastic thing with a single 3/16 allen bolt in it remove it and make sure it is clean no metal shavings(its a magnetic hall effect sensor) if no shavings exist then you have a problem with the spedo and it can only be replaced harley wont repair them

What does error 90 Mean on an Electrolux Ewf 1087

E90 is family error code visible to the customers. It is necessary to read the error in the service mode so please proceed with the following procedure for rapid reading of alarm codes:
Press and hold down START/PAUSE and the option button nearest to the START/PAUSE button for at least two seconds!
After that the display will show one of the following errors that are more precise:
E91, E92 - Communication incongruence between main board and display board (versions not compatible). Posible causes: wirings, main board or control/disply board.
E93 - Incorrect configuration of appliance. Posible causes: Incorrect configuration data; electronic board faulty.
E94 - Incorrect configuration of washing cycle.
Posible causes: Incorrect configuration data; electronic board faulty.
E95 - Communication error between microprocessor and
EEPROM. Posible causes: Electronic board faulty.
E97 - Incongruence between programme selector and
cycle configuration. Posible causes: Faulty electronic board (Wrong configuration data).
Considering that this is a complicated fault, my advice is to contact an authorized service center.They have special equipment such as an interface that allows them to upgrade software in your appliance. If you are not doing anything on the appliance before the failure, the only thing you can check is the contacts between wiring and electronics.

Why will be incorrect grammer to say hair that turns heads?

Your question should read "Why would it be incorrect grammar to say "hair that turns heads"." It would not be incorrect grammar for a sign or motto, but it not a complete sentence. A correct sentence would be "She has hair that turns heads", or "hair that turns heads is sometimes on fire."

Why does my 03 yukon xl speedometer gradually flats to 0 while driving. it does not stall. it does it at least 1 a month specially in long trips or high speeds. when i arrive to destination it cools off...

It is probable that the cable for the speedometer is streached and your MPH reading is incorrect all or most of the time, get a friend to drive behind you at say 55 MPH so you will know the odometer reading ( may prevent speeding ticket )
All metal expands when heated and contracts as it cools. Your cable becomes slack when hot. Stay Safe!

Speedometer excelerating 20 more that correct speed

Incorrect tire size will cause this. Other possiblities are trans repaired with incorrect gear ratio. Also, a dealer may be able to calibrate/set this only if the previous item's are ok, you'll have to ask.
