Knowing which wire goes to what is required. Then you may ohm it out changing the switches position. when the door closes then one set of contacts are opened and the other set is closed. Best described as one hot to a parallel switch. One allows the the light to come on and the other is a permissible circuit loop that will allow the unit to function when the door is closed. :?)

I own a 2003 f-150 heritage edition The windows worked just fine this morning I go to role them up tonight they will not work. I checked every fuse none bad. They light up and locks and power mirror...


Check the power to the power window switch on the driver's side.

Std & SuperCab Engine compartment fuse panel, Fuse # 110 -> Accessory delay relay -> Light Blue w/ Black stripe wire.

If you do not have power at the light blue w/ black stripe wire with the key in the accy or run positions, next would be to pull the accessory delay relay from the cab fuse panel, and bench test it to make sure when power & ground are connected to the coil, that the normally open terminals close. Easy test, power & ground to terminal 85 & 86, ohm meter on terminals 30 & 87.

If the accessory delay relay bench tests good, check for continuity on terminal 87 to the light blue w/ black stripe wire at the window switch.
Another easy route is to install a jumper in the relay socket ( with the relay removed ) as shown in the diagram above, red line. This should have power at the power windows regardless of the key position. If not, the fuse is not good or the wire is broken, most likely in the rubber boot from the a pillar to the driver's door.

Have a kenmore stove, and a code of F93 is coming up. What is the solution?

If lock motor runs:

1. Test continuity of wiring between EOC and lock switch on lock motor assy. Repair if needed.

2. Advance motor until cam depresses the plunger on lock motor switch. Test continuity of switch contacts. If

switch is open replace lock motor assy.

3. If motor runs and switch contacts and wiring harness test good, replace the EOC.

If lock motor does not run:

1. Test continuity of lock motor windings. Replace lock motor assembly if windings are open.

2. Test lock motor operation by using a test cord to apply voltage. If motor does not operate replace lock motor

assy.

3. If motor runs with test cord check continuity of wire harness to lock motor terminals. If harness is good replace

the EOC.

Door lock motor or latch

circuit failure

AS YOU SEE THE F93 CODE REFERES TO THE DOOR LATCH MOTOR

Interior light / electric locks chattering with no key in switch


Yes, you are missing something. The days of removing the battery cable ended with Generators. An Alternator will self destruct if you do that. Be certain to remove it and get it bench tested. Usually kills diodes and often regulator.

the doors clicking sounds like a problem in the door lock circuit, often in the door jamb. If you inspect and find broken wires in the door jamb, do not repair there, you need to replace the entire length. All repairs fail quickly. The wired need to be new and flexible.

On the no start with new battery, be sure to test the neutral safety switch.

Have an old sears craftsman 1/4 hp grinder model 397.19501 wires have been disconnected. I want to rewire and test. Does anyone know how to connect the wires? There are 2 copper tabs under the on/off...


the two copper tabs under the on off switch are to break the power source.connect incoming power to one of these(black) then a short piece of wire from the other tab under switch to one of the three tabs under plate that is marked hot or l1 is probably #2 but you need to be sure. the white is the nuetral or l2 which is most likely #3 and the green is the ground most likely #4 I would definately look online for a wiring diagram to be sure if they are not marked with L1 L2 and GND
