    Cheers for the spedy reply. I have had the battery on optimate and tested, working fully. I will check the rectifier although this is happening when the bike is running or not. I thought the rectifier only comes in to play when the engine is running?

    Thanks again bud, I would try to live with it if not for it being an MOT fail. I think the guy's being an a**hole! Will check bulbs and if that aint the problem take it to a different garage for it's mot;)

How is your battery? You may be making electricity but you may not be storing it. Dimming lights when a load is added is classic battery trouble. If your battery is good, there is a possibility your bridge rectifier (turns AC into DC for our purposes here) might have a bad diode. Diodes pass electricity one way but not the other (making rectrified DC). Diodes can be tested easily. If the diode passes both ways or neither way, your battery is not getting all the power your alternator is making. I'd check the battery first on a 1992 year model.

    Is your battery the right size? And you are sure of its condition? You have checked both voltage and done a hydrometer test?



    I would expect lights to dim when you increase the load and you are not making electricity. I only have experience with Hondas but I think charging systems are charging systems.



    The rectifier is in play when the motor is running, you are correct. Batteries are DC. Once upon a time, Generators were used in cars and they made DC to charge the battery. When Alternators were developed, all kinds of neat things happened. We got electric start lawn mowers, garden tractors, etc. Alternators cannot charge a battery however. So what to do? Modify the AC power knocking off 1/2 of the power cycle and call it rectified AC. And that is what charges a battery. If a rectifier is overloaded, it can burn out 1/2 of its circuits and still work at some level. That is exactly what happened on my CB-360 in 1975.



    Back to your problem. My new Honda 750 experiences some dimming of the lights when the turn signal is used but I really have to look at it to see it and that is at idle. Check the value of the turn signal lamps - make sure they are what the manufacturer originally called for. You might have lamps or a higher wattage which would in turn use more power and cause your dimming. Conversly, if they are the right value, you could put in smaller yet wattage lamps to reduce the draw.



    Have you added other devices to your bike? Running lights? CB radio? Stereo? Anti thieft device? MP3 (what ever that is) All these things add to the power demand.



    And, more remotely, you could have lost some generating capability over the years, coils not operating for some reason for example.



    Maybe the best thing to do is live with it.



    Thats the best I can do for your trouble my friend.

Ouku single din no sound from rca cables


Sorry I did not use the video out RCA cables. My audio RCA cables worked fine... I ran them to my JBL amplifier through a conversion adapter. I did not run it direct to the amp.. I used Metra TYTO-01 03-08 Toyota Vehicles Harness for JBL SYS (Ebay item 160560648718) and it worked great.

Here is the wiring color coding that I found online:

2010 xjs 600 indicators stopped working


Hi, Anonymous before diagnosing any turn signal/running light/parking light issue make sure the bulb is good and the light fuse has continuity with a test light. If you have replaced you OEM lights with LED lights you are going to need a load equalizer. If no turn signals work the cause could be a faulty turn signal module or the connector going to it, look for corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets. Contact spray cleaner is great for removing corrosion. If your speedometer does not function properly it will have to be fixed first because your turn signal module gets the data from the speedometer for normal turn signal function. If your front turn signals don't work use a test light to check for power and ground at the bulb socket, then start backtracking the wiring through every wire connector to the turn signal switch/button and check for continuity, go all the way back to the fuse if necessary to find the cause of the malfunction. If your rear turn signals don't work check your rear fender wiring harness connector first for corroded, broken, loose pins/sockets, power, and a good ground, (the harness connector is usually located under the seat on the front of the rear fender) then keep tracing the wiring look for obvious harness damage caused by the rear tire. If you still can't find the malfunction backtrack from the rear fender wiring harness connector. If one side does not work you could have a faulty turn signal switch or module check for continuity.

Dim/dark Picture


The model indicated here is rear projection that uses three picture tubes.

If rear cover is removed--can be done by removing entire front screen but there are hazards like damaging the screen---with rear cover removed clean the lens in the three round cyclinders which point up and are hard to miss===

They are the light source for the picture---there is if you look up inside and to the rear a mirror but unless grimy it rarely needs cleaning.

clean the lens with a lens cloth or even a paper towel with glass cleaner sprayed on the towel.

Concentrate on the front indicator.
With a meter check you have an intermittent supply with the ignition on and left indicator selected.
If its ok, it will be an earth (ground) problem. Check using a temporary earth wire from the indicator unit to the chassis.
If no voltage found at indicator bulb, trace the supply cable back to source.

Lights turn on but dryer wont start


The problem is likely a blown thermal fuse. Disconnect power then access and bypass the thermal fuse on the blower housing. The blower housing is located on the front left bottom of the dryer cabinet if the dryer has the lint filter on the front or at the rear left bottom if the lint filter is located on the top of the cabinet.

Bypass the thermal fuse by disconnecting the wires and connecting them together. Insulate them properly and plug the dryer back in. The thermal fuse is indeed blown and needs to be replaced if the dryer starts. Do not use the dryer with the thermal fuse bypassed due to fire hazards.

Let us know if the problem is not addressed above but indicate the exact model number of the machine for further advice.
