how do you change battery

Same philosophy regardless of vehicle or equipment.
CAUTION! Battery contains acid which can also be present in general area. Take appropriate precautions.
1) Dis-connect Negative terminal.
2) Disconnect Positive terminal.
3) Remove battery hold down brackets
4) Remove battery from vehicle. Rinse hands to make sure no acid on them
5) Clean terminal connections (battery post clamps). I use a weak solution of baking soda in water and soak the clamps until the foaming stops, then rinse well with fresh water. It's a good idea to rinse the battery tray with the baking soda solution and then water before installing the new battery.
6) Place the new battery in the correct position in the vehicle.
7) Re-install the hold down brackets.
8) Connect the positive cable to the positive battery terminal.
9) Connect the negative cable to the Negative battery terminal.
10) Start engine to check.
11) All done, Make sure the hood is closed.
12) Nap time.

I have a 1990 Ford f150 the low beam headlights are dim high beam work great but my high beam indicator on the dash is always on

Check out your wiring for the lights, it sounds as if you have a short between the low and main beam circuit. If you have a relay in your system that could well be suspect. Check the ground as a poor ground can create this problem as well. One of the problems with this type of fault is the cause can be anywhere in the electrical circuit and without having the motor in front of you is can be rather difficult to track down.

battery light on 2006 focus comes on inter.

Fist thing to try for a quick fix would be to clean terminal posts. It's a pretty easy do-it yourself project.

To do this find where your battery is connected, remove the negative battery cable (black with a - sign) then remove the positive terminal ( red with a + sign). Clean both the terminals and cable end with a wire brush. If heavily corroded, use a paste of water and baking soda on a toothbrush to scrub then rinse off. This may bubble and foam when it comes in contact with the corrosion. After you've rinsed off any remaining baking soda, replace the positive terminal first and tighten, then replace the negative terminal and tighten.

If that doesn't solve the problem, I'd have the alternator tested and replace if necessary.

Good luck,

How do you get Jalapeno Juice off hands it is burning????

Alternate your hands in two soaks:

1) Soak your hands in an acidic juice (Lemon, Lime, Orange, etc.) The acidity helps remove the oils from your skin. Try to work the juice onto your skin to help break up the oil layer. I usually keep my hands in each soak for a MINIMUM of five minutes.

2) Then rinse your hands with cool water, wash with a grease-cutting soap (I use Dawn).

3) Soak your hands in a baking soda mixture - 1 part baking soda to 3 parts water.

4) Rinse & wash your hands again.

Depending on how much oil you have on your hands, you may wish to repeat these steps a few times. If you do, it is important that you DO NOT reuse the soaks.....they will contain any of the hot oil they removed from your skin....reusing them just lets the oil get right back onto you, and defeats the entire process.

Wash out the bowls with a grease-cutting soap, rinse well, and then refill with the juice / baking soda mixtures.

Dishwasher does not clean tea stains from teacups- we have tried a variety of soaps and have used sani-clean. Machine is only one month old- new fully integrated model.

Method #1

  • Wet a cloth then rub the inside of the mug with baking soda. If the stains are stubborn, soak overnight in hot water and baking soda.

Method #2

  • Soak the mug in bleach OR vinegar for several hours or overnight.

Method #3

  • Fill mug with boiling water, add two spoonfuls of dishwasher detergent then soak overnight.

Method #4

  • Try a paste of corn starch and vinegar, apply and let sit for a few minutes then scrub away.

Method #5

  • Drop two denture tablets in the mug, pour hot water over top then soak overnight.

After soaking mugs and removing the stains, rinse and wash very well before using-especially when using the bleach method.
