Question about 2000 Honda VT 1100 C Shadow Spirit

1 Answer

The cooler it gets, the longer it takes for my turn signals to start flashing. I have replaced the flasher, does the same thing. Below 60 deg, the signals take longer to start flashing, once they start, they are fine. Below 50 deg, it might take over a mile for them to start flashing.

Now that is strange. Check your system voltage, while running you need to be at 13.8 to 14.2 or so... Are any bulbs LED's that may be affecting it. Be certain that you actually got the flasher, and not a 4 way for your bike.

Check grounds and connections. Check that you have the correct bulb specified, and finally if this is the only issue on your bike, there are electronic flashers, that are based on time energized rather than filiment load, used often for trailering in cars...

Yamaha vstar 650 2007 turn signals stays solid on and does not blinks after front turn signal replacement to led's.


flashers work buy a set current flow
flasher bulbs are 20 watt or better
by replacing the bulbs with LED ( virtually no current flow ) the flasher will not get enough current to make it flash
you have 2 options
go back ti normal bulbs
get an electronic controlled flasher unit that compensates for the lost current
best talk with an auto electrician as to what you need to fix the problem

Have a 1988 Jeep Wagoneer with a few issues. My turn signals no longer blink or flash that I know of..?


Okay, the first thing to check is to turn on the signal on one side and see if the outside signal light comes on. if the light comes on then try replacing the flasher. Also see if your 4way flashers work or if they are also out. if they are out then check your fuse first.
If the fuses are good then try the flasher, if the flasher does not solve the problem then you may need to replace the turn signal switch. I have worked on a few of these and most of the time it was a flasher or the turn signal switch. good day.

I have a 93 Lesabre the we can't find the flasher for the turn signals help where is it


If the lights only come on but dont flash, activate your emergency flasher with the turn signal off. Take a walk around the car and see that all 4 bulbs light up. If not replace the faulty bulb before looking to replace the turn signal flasher. The flasher unit is located under the dash on the drivers side of the vehicle. You will have to remove the panel under the dash to get at it.

1994 devilles flasher location


Turn signal flasher module is behind dash left of steering column near chime module. I have a 94 Seville and I had that same problem you need a Turn Signal Flasher Moduel, I forgot the proper term for it but I had to get mine replaced too. When I hit the signals to turn the side light would come on but the signal light wouldn't. Its a little box you get from Cadillac it only cost like $20 - $25 and you get it installed and trust. It'll work again. I just got mine done this week and my car now has turn signals again.

THE LAST THING THAT EVER HAPPENS IS FREON LOSS.

 

SO TRY THIS FIRST ...

 

LET THE COOLER STAND WITH "NO POWER FOR 24 HRS.

MAKE SURE IT INSIDE AT ROOM TEMP. NO HIGHER THAN 75 deg. AFTER THE ALOTTED TIME TURN THE T-STAT-"OFF" AND TURN THE POWER "ON" ...

THE CONDENSER FAN SHOULD START IMMEDIATELY. NOW LISTEN REAL CAREFULLY BY THE COMPRESSOR TO HEAR ANY CLICK NOISE. IF YOU DO THAT IS THE EXTERNAL OVERLOAD ( bI-METAL SAFTEY T-STAT THAT PROTECTS THE COMPRESSOR. TURN POWER OFF AGAIN AND DO THE FOLLOWING.

 

THERE IS : 1) A START (plug-in) RELAY THAT PLUGS INTO THE COMPRESSOR.

2) THERE IS A START ASSIST CAPACITOR MOUNTED USUALLY ON THE TOP OF THE COMPRESSOR TEREMINAL COVER.( THIS IS HELD ON WITH A METAL STRAP THAT CAN BE "POPED-OFF" WITH A SCREW DRIVER. OR IT MAY HAVE 2 MOUNTING SCREWS.

3) THERE IS A ROUND BI-METAL T-STAT THAT PROTECTS YOUR COMPRESSOR.(AS STATED ABOVE).

 

MAKE A DRAWING OF WHERE EVERY WIRE GOES AND THE DEVICES ON PAPER. .... THEN ... AND ONLY THEN REMOVE ALL 3 PARTS AND TAKE THEM TO YOUR LOCAL APPLIANCE REPAIR OUTLET. eg. APPLIANCE PARTS. APCO ETC.

THEY WILL CHECK ALL 3 COMPONENTS FOR YOU AND MOST ALL HAVE UNIVERSAL REPLACEMENTS FOR ALL 3 DEVICES NO MATTER WHAT BRAND YOU HAVE.... AND THEY SHOULD BE ABOUT $10-$15 EACH.

I HAVE REPAIRED HVAC & REFRIGERATION EQUIPMENT FOR OVER 40 YEARS. WHAT I DO IS REPLACE ALL 3 DEVICES. IF ONE IS BAD IT TENDS TO OVERHEAT THE OTHER COMPONENTS AND WEAKENS THEM.

 

NOTE: NEVER INSTALL REFRIGERANT SELFTAPPING VALVES TO CHECK FOR FREON ... A AMP DRAW WILL TELL YOU IF COMPRESSOR IS RUNNING AT FULL LOAD , AND AT THE EVAPORATOR YOU SHOULD HAVE A 10-20 DEG F. DROP IN TEMP. YOUR EVAP COIL SHOULD FORM A EVEN FROST ON IT IN ABOUT 2-3 HOURS.

THE MAIN THING IS TO ENSURE COMPRESSOR IS RUNNING.

IF YOU HAVE A THERMOMETER, THE LARGER COPPERLINE ON THE COMPRESSOR SHOULD BE ABOUT 50-60 DEG.AND EVENTUALLY WILL "SWEAT". THE SMALLER LINE SHOULD READ 120-150 DEG "AT THE COMPRESSOR" OUTLET CONNECTION.

MAKE SURE YOUR CONDENSOR AND EVAPORATOR COILS ARE BOTH ABSOLUTELY CLEAN. (CHECK WITH SMALL BRIGHT FLASH LIGHT TO SEE THROUGH COIL FINS.

 

THAT SHOULD SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM. YOU MAY FIND WHEN TAKING THE PARTS OFF ... A BROKEN OR BURNT WIRE. IF SO REPLACE IT WITH AT LEAST #12 STRANDED WIRE.

 

PROPER WIRE AND TERMINALS ARE AVAILABLE AT THE APPLIANCE PARTS STORE IN YOUR AREA.

 

GOOD LUCK ... JOE_REX

Fridge not running well


Not sure of what type of fridge you are refering to.. However you can try a few obvious things. Try turning the thermostat to a lower number (warmer setting) to see if that makes a difference. If you have an ice build up starting to form on the fridge plate or only a partially cold plate then you could have either a loss of refrigerant or compressor fault. Is the compressor noisey in comparisson to its normal noise. Is there heat being produced all over the condenser (black finned section on back of cabinet or underneath cabinet)..If not possible gas leak. Hope this is of some help.
