Electronic timing replacement needed for Z550

I have been told that I can get electronic timing replacement for my Z550 so that I can lose the troublesome points. Any idea where I can find this? I have searched the web but am beginning to wonder if such a thing exists.

    cant say im an expert on the 81 550 and I cant imagine any accessory company still making electronic ignitions, if they ever did. My guess is whoever told you this would be talking of fitting the coils, cdi, stator, flywheel and pickups from another model like the Z650 I understand this is not a solution for you, so if you repost the question someone else may know, if this later model swap is possible

How to remove air suspension pump?

Replacing your Cadillac DeVille DTS electronic shocks with these reliable non-electronic shocks is a simple installation procedure. Cadillac air suspension fails because of rubber dry rotting, and then leaking. Your air suspension compressor will eventually fail because of this. Cadillac shocks in the front fail because of the seals in the Cadillac shock wearing down over time. They eventually leak, losing its dampening ability needed for a safe and smooth ride. Try cadillac dealership for a little more info.

No juice no entry keys lost is there another way to get into a micromark electronic safe?

If you lose you keys, you will need to order duplicate keys from the manufacturer. They will need the serial number and model number of your safe and proof of purchase. After establishing the authenticity of the buyer, they will supply fresh keys at a nominal charge. The duplicate keys are specially ordered from the factory and takes 2-4 weeks for delivery.
However, for security reasons, if you lose your keys, we recommend to change the lock of the safe instead of supplying duplicate keys.

Replacing a clockspring in a 2002 mercury sable?

Clocksprings are part of computers. They are electronic parts inside the computer. If someone told you that you can replace it they were wrong. Unless your an electronic engineer. but you would still have to find it.

How do I change the battery in my 2002 Jetta TDI without losing all electronic settings?

Losing all electronic settings like what? You probably won't lose them if you don't take an hour replacing a battery. The only problem I've had with replacing batteries is that the clock resets on most cars, don't be lazy, set it again.

Not fuel related...
The engine is losing ignition timing.

Bulova has mechanical day/date display near 3 o'clock position, electronic watch (quartz I presume) less than 3 yrs old. Started losing time. I assumed the original battery needed to be replaced. Battery...

I believe you are just outside your warranty. Its time to see a watch maker/technician about repairing the watch. Often times slowing is as easy to fix as lubricating the movement and forcing the gear train through the use of a cyclonic device. This fix takes minutes and is very cost effective. If the slowing is due t circuit board issues or a more sever gear train problem then the movement will need to be overhauled. I suggest comparing this cost to the cost of a replacement movement.

Near new lock not functioning

i had the same problem. i called the company and they told me it was toast. if yours is fairly new, they should replace it for free. they will need some numbers of your lock so they can tell how old it is. if they will not fix it, i recommend getting a schlage be365, that is what i got when my kwikset quit working. i love it, and the batteries in it last a very long time because the power to turn the bolt is your hand, not a motor.
