Do you know which sensor # or name it is? If so, open the front of the case and type in your master code. Then select "delete" from the top row and then either type in the number of the sensor unit (ex: 08) or hit the remote/sensor button and cycle through the ones you've got until you hit the right one. Hit the "done" button and you're finished.

Ps3 does not take disc

If your system no longer accepts DVD's or games you need to have it serviced. The long and short of it is the IR sensor is bad and can no longer since a disk being placed in the drive units opening. It depends on the model of PS3 you have. Newer units no longer use the IR sensor.

Exhaust sensor

Well you realy need a spical tool to remove O2 sensors because a wire is comeing out of the top of it and you can't put a regular socket on it with out damageing the wire . Although you don't say what kind of vehicle or what year it is . I will give you a basic overveiw . Older vehicles have 1 O2 sensor its on the Y pipe comeing off a rear cylinder . Newer vehicles have 4 or more sensors all in the exhaust system 2 in the Y pipes 1 on each side and 1 in front of the catiylic convoter and 1 after the cat The way it normaly works is bank sensor 1 is in the Y pipe and its closest to the front of the vehicle . Then bank 2 sensor 2 is on the other side of the Ypipe if you have a V engine . But bank 1 sensor 3 is in front of the cat and called a down stream and the final sensor is behind the cat and sences the out put of emissions going out the exhaust system . The tool is cheap you can get a kit for 20 bucks or so with 3 or 4 differant kinds of scockets however you may need a breaker bar to loosen then witch is a long bar for leverage . Just make sure what code you have and witch one is bad first and try checking the connections to them first . They don't usely go bad unless there something else wrong with the vehicle

Why my car has the spark plugs like too much gas

you don`t give to much info on your problem.are the plugs black/sooted or are they fuel fouled with unburnt old are the plugs and are they properly gapped.the ignition wires may be no good and need replacing.has the fuel system been cleaned like the injectors.they may be dirty and allowing too much fuel into the combustion don`t say what type of car you have so systems are different on different could have a bad sensor like a throttle postion sensor(tps),mass airflow sensor(maf),manifold air pressure sensor(map)so maybe you should have the computer(ecm) checked for codes and have the data looked at on a scan tool.some suggestions to try.

I have a 1999 ford ranger xlt 3.0 6cylinder i got an 1151 code online shows its an ho2s sensor switch if thats the correct code i want to replace it i cant find where it goes or what it is

Hello!Here is a diagram of the exhaust system for your 3.0L engine (showing one bank, or side)...And the location of the HO2 Sensor...Code 1151; A Heated Exhaust Oxygen (HO2S) sensor indicating lean at the end of a test is trying to correct for an over-rich condition. The test fails when the fuel control system no longer detects switching for a calibrated amount of time....It does not mean that the sensor IS bad, only that it COULD be bad...There are two of them and the code isn't telling you which bank is at fault...Before you spend money on new sensors....Refer to the diagram below for location...Remove...Clean with throttle body cleaner...install...Disconnect + battery terminal for 5 minutes, then re-connect to clear code...

The O2 sensor before the convertor is called (Front or Upstream)...After the convertor (Rear or Downstream)....See photo of sensors below...

Drive and idle is normal but suddenly check engine, pcs and vsc light come up. mechanic have checked. they said this car have few code. p0420, p0430, c1734, b2090, c1a40

ok lets do this in order
P0420 Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank 1) an o2 sensor bad usually before the Cat converter P0430 Catalyst System Efficiency Below Threshold (Bank 2) same thing but the sensor after the cat converter the c1734 people will say you need to replace a bad BCM, but don't,, once the O2 sensor problem is addressed , that code will clear , it has to do with the remote start b2090 has to do with power doors ,, this will drop off too once the system is rest , same with the last one you listed, If I was you I'd have the 2 O2 sensors checked, replace the bad one, or both, and have the mechanic clear all the codes, then recheck them

2005 Chrysler Pacifica 3.5 V6, has a code that says bad crank sensor, got a new one, want to know the location of the crank sensor for that model

Codes don't tell you anything is bad

They are used to diagnose & component test
a sensor or other parts of a system

You only replace a part if it fails a test

If your not testing the system & it's components,
how would you know what does work & what doesn't?

The park assist system switches itself off after a minute. Problably a faulty sensor? But how to find out wich one is bad end how can they be removed out of the bumpers of my 2005 ML270cdi?

Yes it does sound like you have a faulty sensor, If you're in the NY area I'd have a look at it for you. If you're not then you'll need to find someone with the mercedes benz computer (SDS) to find out exactly which sensor is defective. Through the computer it's possible to test each sensor individually to see which one is not working. I'm not 100% sure on this, but I believe there's a very good chance you'll have to remove the bumper to get the sensors out and they are clipped into a housing in the back of the bumper. Hope this information helps.

Please don't forget to rate my answer. Thank You.

Local auto parts ran a diagnostic scan on my chevy cheyenne pick up found a code that stated vacum leak or bad evap sensor or hose cracked or leaking where is is this located on my chevy 5.3 vortec engine

What was the code number?

One of the most common evap issue with GM trucks is a cigarette pack sized Evap Vent Solenoid located near the rear of the gas tank. Code P044x. It's there to depressurize the gas tank and check for leaks.

The EPA says that fuel is no longer allowed to evaporate into the air so it seals off the fuel system. The vent valve opens so gas and fumes don't blow in your face when you open the gas cap. If it don't release the pressure it throws a code and if it don't close and allow pressure to build while driving it throws another code.

Start checking there for bad or disconnected hoses and wiring. Part itself is about $40 and easy to replace. It's location allows road dirt, dust and grime to get into the valve and jam the solenoid.

Abs light and brake light came on wont turn back off

There is a sensor at the top of the rear differential for the ABS system. That sensor went bad and replacing it took care of the problem. What caused mine to go bad was apperantly water got into the differential when launching and loading my boat. check to see if gear lube needs to be replaced also.
The answer above is perfectly correct. When the ABS sensor on the diff goes bad the speedo no longer will work, the odometer stops recording mileage and both brake and ABS light comes on. You also loose O/D or "Lock-up" in the torque converter. The sensor is inexpensive and can be changed in about 30 mins. Good Luck!
I second the second answer :) My ABS light was on, my BRAKE light was on, my CHECK ENGINE light was on, my SPEEDOMETER wouldn't work below 35 mph, then quit working alltogether. Once the speedomenter quit working the odometer and cruise control quit working. I replaced the rear differential mounted speed sensor ($33) and then reset the CHECK ENGINE light by disconnecting the positive battery cable for a couple of minutes. EVERYTHING then worked.
Replace rear differential speed sensor as follows:
a) remove parking brake cable bracket (1/2" socket)
b) remove speed sensor bolt (9/16" deep socket)
c) remove metal speed sensor cover
d) remove speed sensor from rear differential housing (use channel lock pliers, twist gently back and forth while applying upward pressure. Once the speed sensor has a small gap between it and the rear differential housing, insert a flat-blade screwdriver and gently apply upward pressure while gently twisting speed sensor back and forth.
e) disconnect speed sensor from speed sensor cable
f) lubricate new sensor with WD-40, insert into rear differential housing. It will NOT go in all the way by hand, so do NOT force it nor hit it with anything made out of metal.
g) replace metal speed sensor cover
h) Insert speed sensor bolt and tighten LIGHTLY until a small amout of pressure is felt. Tap speed sensor with rubber hammer until it pops into housing. Finish tightening of speed sensor bolt.
i) replace brake cable bracket, replace 1/2" nut and tighten
j) disconnect positive battery cable for 2 minutes, reconnect positive battery cable
h) start vehicle, enjoy,
