    Have you tried removing the HD and just hooking it to a 12v supply? You should be able to feel the drive spinning. If it is spinning up, try it in another working computer and see if it gets recognized. If either of these tests fail, you may need to have a professional recover any data from the drive.

Try the harddrive in an external case. If that dosent work the board on the drive is fried, and youll have to find an exact harddrive and transfer the board.

Proton Gen 2 petrol pump. Not working, no fault codes. What's wrong?

Remove the pump and test it outside the car. Your half second 12v sounds right. When you turn on the ignition switch the voltage to the fuel pump will only be on for about half second but when you crank the engine the voltage going to the fuel pump goes steady

How to test the electrical system of the generator for free

Ez test to determine if stator wiring is ok. This test works on generators that have two sets of 115v plugs and 220v plug. Use a 12v, 1amp ac power supply ( smaller ac power supply should work ok ). With generator not running, apply 12v to one of the 115v outlet plugs. Now verify 12v output voltage with meter at another 115v outlet on generator. Also verify that there is about twice the voltage at the 220 v outlet plug (should be about 20v - 24v) . If the adjoining 115 v outlet plug has no output or very little voltage or if the 220 volt plug has no output, most likely stator is damaged or breaker is off. If the stator is shorted voltage reading will be very low and power supply will heat up. If stator is open, there will be no voltage at second 115v plug or 220 v plug. If voltage is ok at the other outlet plugs as per test above then most likely problem is with voltage regulator, or brushes not making contact or armature winding open or just needs to be energized. Unplug the 12v power supply after test to prevent it from overheating. Most generators have two 115v windings that together power the 220v plug. When you energize one of the windings with the 12v power supply, the second 115v winding will be energized also and give you a voltage reading about equal to 12v. You will not damage the generator with this small voltage being input thru the plug. Good luck

Back left indicator wont work

Check the ground connection. Then check the supply with a 12v test meter. If there's no supply work back along the harness until you find it. You'll need a wiring diagram, try google images.

85 mustang fuel pump not primeing

See if the oil pressure switch has 3 prongs. If so and it's leaking oil, that may be the problem. I can't recall what year they stopped doing that switch but my '89 had it. Aside from that, check the fuel pump relay. It can click and still not supply power to the pump.

never checked for 12v at pump turned on? (2 man)???????
if 12v there, the fuses are and all is working, easy 5min test.
i can see you didnt test the pump, for power.
pump tests (try with no hydraulic load first)
you removed the pump clean it , connect only the wires,
turn it on , does it spin? buzzzzzzzzz, (simple , no ?) it buzzes.

put it back and no hose connected. does it pump water>?
at its output port (open to the world) no hydraulic load)?/?
yes, then it's good. easy huh? and new pump now, so is.... and was....
conclusion here is the head, or load, is packed up.
not free flowing. # 1 cause, of all bad washers. is this...
for mixing wrong cleaners or other bad things in the tank.
then clean the hoses and nozzles, and some have an inline
check valve, that clogs.

packed or pinched lines

Had leak,had water pump replaced,still leaking Alot from above somewhere..Tightened timing cover didnt work-where is the watercoolant coming from?

timing cover has nothing to do with water, it does not travel thru there. you may need to check upper radiator hose, make sure there is not a crack in the thermostat cover. if that is not the case then there is a crack in the engine block or intake.

Wire diagram and color code for fuel pump 2002 misubisji galant

buy a cheap test light/probe and use that at the fuel pump plug to check for power in that circuit.It could also be a relay thats at fault so check that for power in and power out,same test tool.There are not many wires at the pump plug but as long as only one has 12v its not a power supply problem.Does the car run at all?

Codegen 450w model :200x

Run a jumper wire between your Green wire on your 20/24 port plug that would hook to the mainboard and one of the black wires in the same plug. I would put a pushbutton or switch in between the Green and a Black on that plug. You may need to put a load on the power supply like an old hard drive or a CDROM. Plug your power supply in and you will notice the fan turning. Use your multimeter to test for different voltages on the connectors. You should get +/- 12, 5, 3 Volts.

I just went into my basement and tested this out and it works great.
