I don't have no radio after getting my main fuse by the motor replaced looked at fuse box all in japanese googgled elgrand but gave diagram but fuses seem ok if i checked them properly thanks

You can check every fuse on the car in 5 minutes, without even pulling the fuse out to inspect it. You just need a cheap test light, one with an electrical lead with a clip and a needle type probe.

On the tops of all fuses (maxi-fuses, regular fuses, & mini-fuses) are two indents with metal showing, one at each end of the top.
For the under hood fuses, clip the tester lead to the negative post of the battery. Touch the positive battery post with the probe to check your ground clip is good-tester should light up. Now turn the key to on, not start, and touch the tester probe to one end of a fuse in the little slot-it should light up-(almost) every fuse on the car will have power going through it with the key in on. Now you probe the other end of fuse: If fuse is good, tester will light on both ends of fuse. A blown fuse will only light the tester on one end of fuse. If both ends light, fuse is good, and move to next fuse.

For the fuses inside the car, just clip the tester lead to a good ground point-a metal screw or metal bracket under the dash. Again with key in on, touch a fuse end in that testing slot. If tester doesn't light,. check or reposition the ground lead till you see the tester light up. Now touch each fuse on both ends. A good fuse will light the tester on both ends of fuse, a blown fuse will only light tester on one end of the fuse. There, you are done. You not only have checked all fuses, you have verified that power is going through the fuse panel.

There may be one or two fuses that won't light the tester on either end with key on. Some cars have an interior lights fuse that only gets power with the head or park light switch turned on. And some cars have a "crank" fuse that only gets power when the key is in crank or start. (A fuse for the radio will certainly have power with key in on.) There are a few fuses that are hot at all times (like brake lights fuse, and most if not all of the maxi-fuses). But with key on, (almost) every fuse should show power and light up a test light. good luck.

No power to left rear turn/ brake light

Check the display. Ask a helper to step on the brake pedal while you check the lights from the rear. If no lights appear, check the fuse that connects the brake lights. The owners manual will show the location of the fuse box and which fuse is for the brake lights. Pull out the fuse and look at the wire in the central window. If the wire is broken, replace the fuse. Make sure the new fuse is not blown, and carries the same amperage.
Take note of lights that are out, if any are working. The problem may be cured by replacing the bulb in a brake light that's out. A burned out bulb has a broken filament and a dark brown spot on one side. Check the owners manual for bulb type.
Check the circuit if replacement bulbs and fuses do not restore the lights. Find the wiring diagram in the vehicle assembly manual. The circuit for the brake lights runs from the battery to the fuse, to the pedal switch, to a connection plug, to the lights. The circuit has to be checked with a volt tester at all points.
Check the battery power and the light on your volt tester. Turn the ignition key far enough to activate the electrical systems. Turn on the lights to check for battery power. If the battery has power, ues it to check the volt tester. Put the black lead (the ground) from the volt tester on the negative battery terminal. Briefly touch the red tester light on the positive terminal. The light on the volt tester should flash brightly.
Test the wiring to the fuse. Clip the ground wire to solid metal near the fuse. Touch the light tip to both sides of the fuse. Both should light the tester. If neither side lights, the wire between the battery and fuse is bad. If only one side lights, the fuse is blown.
Test the switch and wiring. Touch the light tip of the tester to both terminals on the brake pedal switch without putting any pressure on the pedal. One should carry power and the other should not. When both show power, the switch is stuck and the brake lights are always on. If neither shows power, the wiring between the fuse and the switch is bad. Now check both switch terminals while the pedal is depressed. Both sides should light the tester. If not, the switch is bad.
Check the connection plug. Unplug the connection and refer to the vehicle manual to identify the brake light wire. Touch the tester light on the brake light wire at the inner socket on the battery side. If the tester lights, the power is flowing to this point. If not, the wire between the plug and the pedal switch is bad.
Check the socket. Plug in the connector plug and remove the bulb. Touch the contact inside the socket. If the tester lights, the socket is good. The socket and wire running to the plug should be replaced if the tester doesn't light.
Check the bulb with the ground wire. The bulb must be in its socket. The ground wire running to the socket should be black or brown. Stab the tester through the insulation. If the tester lights, the bulb is good. Replace the bulb if it doesn't light.
Check the ground wire. Remove some of the insulation around the ground wire. Twist one end of the extra wire around the exposed ground wire. Touch the other end to a solid piece of metal. If the brake light comes on, the ground wire is bad.

KitchenAid KSM90 mixer wont turn on, already replaced phase board

Did you play with the Brushes??? If you did you have to make sure that they went back in the correct way or they won't be touching the armature and the mixer will not operate untill the brushes touch the armature. If you did nit take the brushes out at all. then your problem is the flag connectors are not in the correct terminals. 9_15_2012_6_02_40_am.jpg
the other problem is the possibility that when you re-installed the speed board that you now have to tune the mixer by adjusting the screws on the top of the speed board.

Which side is the positive and negitive on the battery no markings

If the battery is not marked (I have never seen one that was not) use a test light or multimeter with the black lead to engine ground. Touch red lead ( or tester point) to each of the 2 terminals. When you see voltage or the tester lights up, that is the positive terminal.

Back right brake light does not work replaced bulb still does not work

there is a fuse for it... look under the dash and under the hood.. find the one labeled R TAIL or something like that... its gonna be bad... if you have a light tester you can always ground it to a bolt on the car and touch the tip of the tester to the opened spots on the topside of the fuse.. youll see two little silver spots... everytime you touch a side the other side should light up as well if it doesnt you know that fues is bad and needs to be replaced
hope this helps

Now power from my living room. The outlet on the same circuit also now power. I used the Sperry Instrument tester and the outlet show lights on correctly. But when I plug a load on like a lamp or turn on...

I wonder if you don't have a place where the wire has abraded through and is now able to track to earth, or even a Partial Disconnection of the Phase wire, at that point and where it has worn through, it is contacting ground. You could have a Phase disconnection, that is touching earth, and when a load comes on, the fault, because of the current draw, now goes "Full On" as it "Shorts" to earth, while at same time, cannot deliver much current past that fault point. You need to remove Power from that Circuit, then measure, for Continuity, from Breaker Board to each wire in the Socket, and From Phase & Neutral to Earth. You should get continuity between Phase & Neutral, BUT nothing between each of those and Earth. If you twist together, the Phase and Neutral at the Socket, from the breaker board end, you should get a very LOW OHMS reading under 1 -2 OHMS, if not that is a fault.

My existing bathroom light switch is shorting out. i replaced it with a new switch replacing the wires in the exact order they were taken off. the light now stays on regardless of the position the switch...

hey if the the switch installed has only two connection one the ON and other the OFF

so get a tester and check for a the phase wire i.e the wire with current.... and see to it it dosent touches the wire which goes to the light ..if it touches its shot and your light is always on.....

so please check that it dosent touches each other before fixing and after fixing in the wall unit....and there may be also some wire in side which makes it ti touch eachother .......

97 toyota tercel cigarette lighter does not work. fuses look to be in good shape. any ideas?

get you a test light. pull the plug out where you can see the leads. the red one in the center is your hot wire. touch it with the tester, the other wire on your tester usually with a clip to a good solid gound. if the light doesnt come on then reverse test leads and try again. by doing this you will determine if its a ground wire not getting to the cig lighter or is something is wrong with your hotwire.
