1999 chrysler 300M won't shift out of park. Pulled so ******* the shifter it broke.

possible internal locking pawl stuck fault or adjustment required

sourced from another forum

The park interlock cable is part of the brake/shift lever interlock system. Correct cable adjustment is important to proper interlock operation. The gear shift and park lock cables must both be correctly adjusted in order to shift out of PARK.


1. Remove floor console as necessary for access to the park lock cable.

2. Shift the transmission into the PARK position.

3. Turn ignition switch to LOCK position. Be sure ignition key cylinder is in the LOCK position. Cable will not adjust correctly in any other position.
NOTE: If the key will not turn to the LOCK position, pull up on the cable lock button and manually move the cable in and out until the key can be turned to the LOCK position.

4. Pull cable lock button up to release cable, if necessary.

5. Remove and discard the cable adjuster lock pin, if a new cable is being installed.

6. Ensure that the cable is free to self-adjust by pushing cable rearward and releasing.

7. Push lock button down until it snaps in place. The lock should be 1-2mm below the surface of the cylindrical portion of the cable

Why did it suddenly stop cutting?

Please provide the model of your machine.

Ok, it's a serger. Wondered why a sewing machine would be cutting unless it had the cut-n-sew accessory.

Most likely the blades are damaged or malfunctioning. Is the blade still moving when it is stitching? Is it just chomping away at the fabric but not cutting? If so, either or both blades need to be replaced. Consult your owner's manual. Usually only one blade can be installed without any technical knowledge. You can probably order the replacement blade and install it yourself. However, the other usually needs to be replaced by a knowledgeable technician because it requires some precision.

Has the blade stopped moving at all? If so, how long has it been since a thorough cleaning and oiling? Take it for service.

How do I open my safe?

You should have a key and/or a combination lock. If any fails, my best advice is to contact shop which selled you the safe.
If it's and old safe, call a good locksmith.
Urban Legend says that most good locksmiths have some "safe-cracker" past - ok, this just meant to be some kind of a joke, but I saw a locksmith opening an apparently unexpugnable secority door lock in 5 minutes when my neightbour got locked out of his home.

F05 fault after replacing brushes

F05 - NTC failure (SC/OC)
All appliances managed by the electronics measure the temperature using a thermistors. These thermistors changes resistance depending on the temperature. There are two kinds of thermistors, NTC and PTC.
NTC has a negative temperature coefficient which means that with increasing temperature the resistance decreasing (used in washing machine, dishwasher, dryer, refrigerator....etc).
PTC has a positive temperature coefficient which means that with increasing temperature the resistance increasing (used in oven, refrigerator for starting compressor...etc).
If you look in the table below, it is clear that the resistance value of 100 ohm means that is NTC faulty. So, I really do not understand how it is possible that the resistance increases with temperature?

Resistance of NTC depending on temperature
0 °C 35.9 kohm
30 °C 9.8 kohm
40 °C 6.6 kohm
50 °C 4.6 kohm
60 °C 3.2 kohm
70 °C 2.3 kohm
95 °C 1.1 kohm

How do I repair or replace a defective gas gauge?

It is in the instrument cluster, which has to be removed to replace the gauge. It cannot be repaired. Did you first check the 10 amp METER fuse in the fuse panel?

Now let me say, that when the gauge quits, it is more often a fault in the sending unit in the gas tank, and not the gauge. Here is how to find out if your gauge is good: Find the fuel tank electrical connector, and pull it apart. You will need a small jumper wire. Find the blue wire in the body side of the connector (not the fuel tank side). Put the jumper wire into the blue wire terminal, turn the ignition key to on not start, and ground the jumper wire to a metal frame piece. Someone needs to watch the fuel gauge needle while the wire is grounded. If the gauge in the dash is good, the needle will move. It will probably go to either full or empty, but if the needle moves, the gauge is good and the fault is in the sending unit in the tank. Don't give up testing until you are sure the jumper wire is being grounded good to the frame. Just touch the wire to frame and watch the needle movement, once sure, stop so you don't blow the fuse. If the needle doesn't move, first check the 10 amp meter fuse. If fuse is good, it must be the gauge.

I have tried numerous times to undo a nut on my Black and Decker circular saw without success. which way do I turn the nut to undo it and take the circular saw blade?

Am I correct that this is a hand-held saw? Want to make sure of the terminology.

If so, the bolt holding the blade has right hand threads -- meaning it loosens by turning counter-clockwise.

Is there a blade lock? Are you using it?

98 jeep Grandcherokee instrument cluster failure

OP sorry you are fixing a car you dont understand.
no engine stated, nor size or gas or diesel
and is a stalls post!
located DOWN under, zillion miles from us...oh joy;

the post a WG jeep (to usa) we dont have them here in USA, zero.

then post wall of text and endless problems
why stick to just one, fix that and move on.
pick one.(ASD is serious )
be best here, in serial endless, posts land.
i hate to pop your bubble but mechanics is now 1/2 electronics! facts.

EFI , and networks too. sorry but you need some class time.
I see you are mixing up different jeeps data.
why mix one countries books with others,for sure yours and ours
our 98 is WJ jeep ONLY sold only here.
outside usa. JG or, ZG, WG
sorry they are not the same car, nor are the clusters.

wow. nor many other things same,most of which are governed by each countries laws
KUDOS or 11th person ever here stating country, gee there is hope.
way to go there,here is big fat cigar and lotto ticket as prize! HOORAY!

this car runs from 1993 to 2017 and beyond
so vast books on them. huge by country (market)
you can not swap cluster willly-nilly, due to odometer laws
if you read the cluster page,(SM) it told you that
SM = service manual.
and yes, cluster runs on a network, all GC are.

if you had read the cluster chapter it told you
how to do the cluster self test diagnosis(methods)
costs 0 bucks 0 tools.
so if that passed, you scan the PCM
to see if there are no communication errors to the cluster.
no cluster can work on a DEAD NETWORK
just like dead WIFI, same same. deal.

you failed both steps; guessing here, is not possible.
seems like we can delete you whole post
and add this.
"Have had an intermittent Failure of injectors and ignition coils,l auto shut down and fuel pump relays for several years now:
sure many do... and will never be fixed, ever lacking a scan too. (I promise)

if then car has IMMO lamp,(lamp12> right corner)
if it glows at any time driving,that means KEY FAILURE.
"security key:" if in fact is is opted, and in europe they run there own, SKIM IMMO systems there. even back to 1996.

so not fitted with IMMO
then you must scan the PCM to see why the pcm Cut the ASD relay, you MUST there is NO other way possible
sorry, but is a FACT

so post, car drops ASD random times
and forget all that other stuff.

check IMMOBILIZer lamp.
scan it now.
if fail scan not,or even before failure we scan live driving
for fact the PCM will tell you WHO failed
is this hard? no!

if no scantool

BRICKwall results.

here is skim 2002 skim
see that lamp.. if it goes on driving all jeeps made on earth STALL,(BY DESIGN)
and 6 more causes of ASD drop and stalls.
salls have 50 cause,but im talking only ASD drop
induced STALLS
