How many sensors does my 2006 solara have

Dependa on the defination of the word senser. The main sensers that tell the computer what's going on and then thiers another set of sensers that tell the driver what's going on the ten are you just talking about the engine or the transmission or the brakeing system or the aircomditioning system. The ABS braking system has a fluild level senser, a wheel speed senser ( one at each wheel) if your solara has four wheel drive it's got a rear differantial speed senser and a transmission out[ut speed senser. then the sysyem uses sensers in other systems like the bdy control sysyem to get anbieant temperture and alaitude information and the stabitly system has a GPS conection and real speed and direction and conpass readings all used to just get the ABS system working and the traction control system That shares these sensers also has inputs from the engine conrol system as to trottle position and air flow and RPM and may require the engine control system to stall or satutrer the engine or even limit RPM to regain traction or get the vehical headed in the right direction. The air conditioning system depending on the yype of system installed and what factory it was made in and what country it was made for sale in can change the number of sensers that's in it quite highly. Some of the zone indepentant controlled fully automatic systems ( top of the line) can have as many as 5 temperture sensers alone never mind 1 or on some models two sunlight sensers. The freaon pressure sensers as many as four and no less then two. An RPM senser on the compressor clutch and information from the engine system as to throttle position( it turns the compressor off in wide open) and high RPM ( it turns the compressor off to prevent over speeding the compressor and to give the car all the power it can to go fast.) the evaporator temperture as to not allow it to freeze. amoisture senser as to direct dry air onto the windshield to clear it as a safty concern. I've not even begun to tell above the engine or the transmission or the theif recovery systems or the antitheif systems.

2007 yukon. battery goes dead in a few hours. It will do this about once every 6-12 months. Doors lock themselves when no one is near vehicle and keys are out of ignition . Does this every few months

I think you have what is called a parasitic drain. First check to make sure the light in the glove box, under hood, indicator light showing door is ajar, interior light ect all go out when they are suppose to.

If this is something that happen only once every in 6 to 12 months I think you are probably dealing with something that is human caused, something left on and not a mschanical issue. If it happens repeatedly when it does occurs then your parasitic drain is probably more of a short in the system. You can disconnect the negative battery cable to prevent yourself from getting stuck when this is going on. When this is happening you pull fuses for various systems and see if the battery still discharges the next day. If the battery is discharged the next day then those systems whose fuse were pulled are not involved. If the battery does not discharge then you have identified which systems are involved. Again this works only if you are having the battery discharge repeatedly.

Sytem will beep every three hour or when we open the main door

Check batteries in patio door are in correctly and are good. I know you said you changed them all. but if batteries are in correctly and are good try taking them out again waiting 20 sec putting them back in. If they are bad or low most likely a bad sensor shorted the out. replace part.

I've re-installed Windows XP on a ESystems 3090 laptop, but the battery is failing to be charged at all. Am i missing drivers or is the internal battery dead ?

your operating system probably requires more juice than the battery is capable of. batteries do tend to fail as they get older. This is usually not a driver issue.

My DSC security system is reading "open" and the trouble buttom is lit up.. I do not have the alarm set up, however, it chimes every time you open the door. It was chiming every 5 seconds, what does this...

First of all go to your security box.Now you will have to find where all the sensors conect to the panell.These area's on the board are called zones such as zone 1 zone 2 and so forth.Chech and make sure no wires have came loose from the screw termanils also make sure their is no corrision (good contacts are key).If this doesent work you will need a magnet find out which zone you are having trouble with such as front door back door window ect.Now their are two different sensers one is a flush mounted senser this will look like a little box on the frame of what ever it is securing.The other one will be a inset one this will be harder to find.It will be inside the frame of what ever it is securing.In any case you wil need to run the magnet over this device and see if the panel will reset.If this hapens then you know that their is something wrong with the orig. magnet.(When you shut the door or window the orig. magnet will align with the senser).Some times the distance between the senser and the magnet will effect the senser.If the senser is a flush mounted senser then their will be some wires you can acess to see if they are making contact.

((((( I DO NOT RECOMENT THIS ONE. IF YOU TRY THIS ONE YOU WILL NOT BE PROTECTING THIS ZONE AND SOMEONE CAN NOW BREAK IN )))))The next thing to try is to simply look on the panel door and read where it says which resistor it needs and where it goes on the panel in relationship to the correct zone buy the resistor and install it in the panel.

((((( I DO NOT RECOMEND THIS ONE. IF YOU TRY THIS ONE YOU WILL NOT BE PROTECTING THIS ZONE AND SOMEONE CAN NOW BREAK IN)))))The next thing to try is the zone bypass.The instructions on how to do this should be on the back of the key pad door.

The next thing to try is to look in the senser to see if it has a battery.Some sensers have a battery and they need to be replaced from time to time.Now I have been asuming that this is a senser on a door or a window but their are other sensors that are optional on this panel as well.Check all wires on these batterys and make sure all outer housings are securly on the sensors.

If none of this works then you probably either have something wrong with the wireing or the panel its self is faulty.If so contact a security technician.
