Remove switch, connect to a battery with globe and cycle.
or simply put volt meter to either side of switch and take a reading.
most likely the switch is jammed closed.

Hyundai scoupe 1995 model fan blower not coming on

first check if there is voltage to high blower resistor should have 12volts in on one side normal red wire also most often if that is good then blower motor needs replaced but you can verify by applying 12volts and a ground to the two wires on the blower motor

Need to know the DC voltage / amperage input for a Simple Drive 500 GB external HD. Model # 96300-41001-160

The power supply must provide 12Volts at 3 Ampere, as I remember.
There should be a label on the underside of the power supply that you can check.

The pad for the windows and lock on the driver door do not work, the light does not come on when i open drive door but does for rest of doors, also the radio no longer stays on when i turn ignition off....

{: ) Check the DDM fuse10amp at the fuseblock rear. If okay, try to remove the driver door switch. Use a flat bladed tool to snap it out from its clips at both ends. Check for 12volts on the two thick orange wires and the ground (black wire). If no 12volts, the wirings should be checked.
But if there's 12volts, then the problem is on the driver door/window switch. You can try to have it reprogrammed. If that doesn't work, it may need to be replaced, and programmed.

I'm having problem with my HL-S6767W saying to check fan #2? How to fix? I need the buy the part but do not know where to go? Help!

you will need to open up the back of the tv and carefully make sure the safety switches are engaged and check to see which fan does not come on when the tv is turned on - then remove it and get the part number off of it - also while you are there check the voltage to make sure you have 12volts on that board...remember tvs can kill you be careful

It won't turn over but the lights are working tho

Just because the lights work does not rule out the battery. Take the battery cables off, remove the battery and have it load tested. If ok, since the cables are off look at the ends of the cables and clean them if necessary, Reinstall the battery and try to start. If it cranks over your battery or connections to it was the problem. If it does not start you will need to check voltage to the starter. I would recommend using a volt meter but a 12v test light may also be used. Check the voltage to the large cable connected to the starter solenoid, make sure you have battery voltage (12volts). Next hook your meter to the smaller wire on your starter solenoid, this is the crank signal wire. With someone holding the key in start position check for voltage to the wire. Should have 12volts.If you have 12v on this wire then your starter is getting proper voltage and needs replacing. If no voltage is present the you will need th check that feed circuit. Could be a neutral safty switch or clutch switch(if you have one). Even the ignition switch could be bad. If no voltage is present on your solenoid signal wire get a wiring diagram and check voltage from switch to starter. Good luck!

I would like to know how to troubleshoot a brand new Ultra LS600 power supply. I would like to go beyond hearing "it's dead" since I am getting power to the motherboard (via indicator light)m but the PSU...

You can start the PSU manually with a paper clip.
Remove the 20 pin connector from the motherboard, leave the four pin power connectors attached to your various drives (this will provide a load on the power supply when it start up (provided it is not faulty).
Look at the 20 pin connector with the connector facing you.and the locking clip to your left.
The fourth pin from the bottom LH corner should be a green colour wire and the next two wires (5th & 6th pin) should be black and next to the locking clip.
Straighten a paper clip and insert it into the 4th pin and into the 5th or 6th pin (ie connect these wires together). These wires connect to the front panel switch to turn on your computer. You are testing the power supply only and since it is not connected to the motherboard the computer won't start.
Now connect the power unit to the mains and switch on the mains, if the power supply is OK the PSU fan should spin up and your hard disk should also spin up. If nothing happens the the PSU is faulty.
You can test the +5volts and +12volts supply on a 4 pin power connector with a multimeter. The red wire is +5volts and the yellow wire is +12volts and the black wires are negative (ground). The voltage readings should be within 5% of these voltages.
There are other voltages to be checked +3volts, -5volts, & -12volts. but these are not as critical.
