Coiled cable is damaged

There is a gash on the cable and the interior wires are exposed, the red one is damaged but still working but the black one is completely severed. would it be better to just replace the cable or should i just attempt to repair the cable? if so how would i go about doing that?

How to replace freeze plug on 1998 dodge ram pickup


Use your crescent wrench to disconnect the positive and negative battery cables. Be careful not to touch both battery posts together with your wrench, as this will damage the battery and possibly harm you.

Use your spark plug socket to gently grab the insulated end of the spark plug wire; pull it away from the tip of the plug. The spark plug socket looks like a regular set of pliers, except that the jaws have rubber inserts to grip the insulation without damaging it. The plug wire itself looks like a 15-gauge wire with a rubber boot on each end: One end is connected to the spark plug present in each of the eight cylinders, while the other end is connected to a coil pack terminal, usually located on the right rear side of the engine compartment. The coil pack is a square, black, solid-state component that has eight terminals for each of the eight plug wires.

Use your spark plug socket to gently pull the coil pack end of the plug wire away from the terminal. Repeat the last two steps until all eight wires are removed.

Consult the service manual for your vehicle's year model and determine the exact firing order. You will need to connect each new wire to the numbered coil pack terminal and the corresponding engine cylinder. Failure to replace the wires in the right order will result in failure of engine operation.

Use your crescent wrench to reconnect the battery cables (black wire to black terminal, red wires to red terminal).

Start the vehicle and make sure it is running smoothly. If you hear misfiring in the engine, use the spark plug wrench to make sure all the connections are properly seated. If the condition continues, you will need to further diagnose the electrical system.

Phone won't charge at all? No lights? Fix it here!


Your battery has been depleted past a chargable state.  This is a due to a bad design in the phone that doesn't monitor the battery power state well enough.  It actually allows the battery to be taken under the minimum amount needed to recharge the battery. 

You can fix this, but do so at your own risk.

You can simply purchase a new battery, that will work, just been sure not to let it deplete the battery totally anymore.

Now, on to the fix

-Take out the battery.
-Get any usb cable you can find sitting around. (any usb wire will do, an old printer cable, anything with a usb end that can plug into your computer)
-cut one end of the plug off. You need to leave the side on that connects to your computer. Cut off the side that plugs into a device (printer, camera, web cam, etc)
-Strip the rubber off the wire and expose the wires inside.
-Separate the wires from each other. You will only be using the BLACK and RED wires.
-strip the very end of the black and red wires carefully using a wire cutter exposing the metal wire inside the red and black covering.
-Plug in your home made battery charger to your computer. Careful not to touch any exposed metal, as it will give you a small shock.
****WARNING****
DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES ALLOW THE RED AND BLACK WIRE TO TOUCH EACH OTHER
****WARNING****

-now carefully hold the black wire to the negative terminal on the battery (it should be noted with a black circle with a - in the middle). Then touch the red wire to the positive terminal (it will be noted with a red circle with a + in the middle).

Hold the 2 wires there for 20 seconds. Then quickly plug the battery back into the phone, and then plug it into a regular charger. Give it little bit of time, if you've done everything correctly the charge light should come on.

I had to repeat the last step again to get the light to turn on indicating it was charging.

You must not hold the wires to the battery for too long, 20 seconds should do it. You can overload a battery with this trick and actually make it explode if you hold it there too long. You are well within the few minutes needed to detonate the battery due to overcharging by sticking very strictly to 20 seconds.

Just be careful and you'll be fine.

One you get a charge light give it a few minutes in the off position, then try powering up the device and keep it plugged in until you get 100% charge.

Good luck,

Peter

Two redlights on my amp? The battery died on my car, and after jump starting, I'm not sure if my amp is working. Two red lights are on, but I think one of the lights used to be green. All speakers are...


If there is a red light displayed, for this particular amp, then that means the overload circuit has been activated. This is caused by excessive output current. What may have happened is that the passive crossover components have been damaged. If you know how to use a soldering iron, you may be able to visually see the damaged components on the crossover circuit board and repair them. Another possibility is either a speaker cable is exposed and touching the vehicle chassis, or a voice coil has been damaged. The most likely problem is a damaged voice coil, as that would still play music but would require more power to reach the same audio output. Smell the area around each speaker magnet for a burned scent, which would indicate a damaged voice coil. If there is no scent, visually inspect each speaker for damage. If there is nothing visible and you do not smell any burned scent, and you are sure the speaker leads are not exposed and touching the vehicle chassis, then there is probably nothing wrong.

How do you jump start the car


You may have to expose the battery terminals due the fact of plastic covers on the newer vehicles. If the battery terminals are already exposed, you will find one terminal with a red wire while the other is black, (usually). The terminal witht the red wire is considered the positive terminal, which will match a plus sign. The red jumper cable must be attached to this terminal, and the other red jumper cable must be attached to the other battery with a red wire. Then, follow suit with the black wire, this is the negative wire, hence the minus sign. This works if you have another vehicle to jump your battery from.

If you are using a battery charger, you will have to connect the reds to reds and the blacks to blacks using the aligator clips at the ends.

My dell laptop suddenly stopped working without the power cord. power cord needed to be repaired, it had a gash exposing wires. fixed it with electrical tape but it is no longer portable, did i mess the...


It sounds more like the large portability battery has been 'messed' i recommend getting a new power cord. Whist you may have repaired the cabling and it may have appeared to work, the escape circuit for charge may have been broken but it is not required for the laptop to work, but is important when recharging the battery. I recommend getting a new adapter and then if that doesn't work a new large battery also.

I have cut through the cable of a black and decker hedge trimmer Can it be repaired?


yes. you can just connect the red wire to the red wire, white to white, green to green, black to black... you probably only have 2 wires in the cable. strip the insulation back, then take the wires and see if you have enough slack to connect them back by more than 2 in.. if not, add a 8" section of wire and splice it back in with wire nuts or other securement and cover it all in electrical tape very well... it will corrode much quicker now its been exposed to the elements... but use its life up before you get rid of it i say.

No spark on 1998 2.5l Ford Ranger


Try replacing the Air Flow Sensor, it's the switch looking thing, to the right of the air filter box; I think it runs about $6-$10s. Good luck.

For the doors alarms and dome lights, try: spraying the inside and around the inside of the center door latches with WD40 or silicone lube. Hoping it's that simple.
