How do I stop light thumping noise?


For the fun of it I would pull the drum out of it and examin the bearing the drum rides on. Now some of these have a regular type wheel bearing type, and others have these wide plastic that the drum just rides on. But they are not that hard to take apart and put back together. Just need some practice.

1987 Ford Econoline motorhome, sometimes key turns and nothing happens but starts fine with jump leads, keep on turning the key and eventually it will start. Can anyone shed any light please


Sure, CLEAN your battery cables - ESPECIALLY the bottoms. The bottoms are exposed to grease, road grime and when covered in "gunk" causes resistance. When you jump start or hit key multiple times, cables heat up and expand making better contact. Advise - clean ALL cable ends

The keyless remote alarm went off, I pushed lock buttons on remote to stop the alarm, now the ignition is locked and I can't turn the key to start the car


Try wiggling the streering wheel left & right while turning the key, sometimes pressure on the steering linkage will keep the key from turning.

1997 Oldsmobile Achieva No brake lights or signals, fuse keeps burning out No power running through wires to rear brake lights, but Headlights/running lights work. We think short is in the steering wheel...


The problem is the flasher selector below the steering wheel in the column.The main copper arm is not touching the 4-5 contacts due to fatigue.Bend it down, OR the unit is sloppy due to plastic hooks holding it being fatigued.(most likely issue)Drill a hole in from side nearest key to push the hook tight against selector.Use a bolt with a nut outside and inside, apply glue so nuts don't turn.

Unplug battery for at least an hour (overnight better)to discharge power to air bag(best left that way while working on steering wheel). 2 screws behind horn/airbag unscrew them pull panel off, disconnect air bag wire. Disconnect the horn wire.You will need 2 types of wheel pullers after you take off the centernut.(Rent from Autozone) Remember the order of uninstall.(Washers inside)

Not typing the correct letters


The ML-300 needs to be reset each time the Daisy Wheel is removed or replaced or if the Keyboard Switch changes position. According to Brother, if this is not done the typewriter will print incorrect characters. Try these steps: 1) Open the Top Cover. There is a lever directly behind the Daisy Wheel. Pull the lever back towards you. Remove the Daisy Wheel by pulling it up and out. 2) Verify that it is the Standard Daisy Wheel that came with your machine and not a Symbol or International Daisey Wheel. Write down the Pitch (10, 12, or dual pitch 1012) printed on the wheel. 3) Reinstall the Daisy Wheel (the plastic top ear goes to your right.) Push the lever (step 1) forward. 4) Press the ALT key plus the PITCH key and the number 1 key simultaneously. Verify the Pitch setting is the same as is printed on the Daisy Wheel. 5) Press the CODE key plus the RESET key and the letter Q key simultaneously. This will reset the typewriter mechanism and align (or time, in technical terms) the carriage mechanism. Check if the typewriter prints correctly now. If still incorrect, perform these additional steps. 6) Verify the three position Keyboard Switch (inside the top cover, on the right side, at the bottom) is in the I=Standard position. The other positions are: II=International and III=Symbol. 7) If the Keyboard Switch is in the correct position, slide it to position III and then back to I. (This will clean the switch contacts in case they are dirty and not making good electrical contact. 8) Press the CODE key plus the RESET key and the letter Q key combination again to reset the typewriter mechanism. Check if the typewriter prints correctly now. If still incorrect, the only other things I can think of is that: 1) an incorrect Daisy Wheel is installed that does not work in the ML-300. Brother sell a "B type" Daisy Wheel with two plastic ridges/raised slots below the center of the Daisy Wheel (viewed with the raised top tab on your left.) The B type are incompatible with your machine. 2) the typewriter has failed and needs repair.
