Why does my 2000 Ford Excursion's keyless entry not work after 12 PM? It works fine in the morning!!

Hello Mark!

Fails at exactly 12PM? ?? I'm sure you mean at some random time, late and after dark...when it gets cold... Of course it's still cold in the morning, when the darn thing comes back to life.


Do any of your fobs work? Maybe they operate properly after a night in your nice, warm home, as opposed to hanging from your belt. Hey, I'm tryin' to help here??.

intermittent issues are the worst. Try an on-line Excursion users group to see if you suffer alone.

Also, how did you miss out on Cash-For-Clunkers? ??

All the best!

Laptop shuts OFF on it's own

Laptop fans DO NOT run constantly. They only turn on when booted up and once the laptop has reached a certain temperature. You should probably time how long for a shutdown, record your results. Let laptop cool for 10-15 between attempts. If it takes approximately same amount of time to shutdown between attempts it is very possible its overheating.
Other things like Viruses, software conflicts, and Harddrive problems can also be the culprit. take a look at the administrator event logs for any clue there. Event logs are in control panel under Administrator Tools.

I don't recommend trying to fix any overheating issue you may have, as that would entaiil disassembling your laptop. Unless you have a bit of experience in this, I would take it to a good repair shop.

Hope this helps you some. If so please rate my solution.

Advent laptop overheating

Check the jack on the machine to see if it's loose or broken. Use a small screwdriver, and see if you can move it in any direction. If it is loose or broken, get it fixed imediately. A loose or broken jack can create an electrical arch which can do severe damage to the machine.

Urgent: AVC Fan Problem!, Fan[box]'s small black piece thing fell out (broke off actually) & so now avc fan hangs loose [computer dosen't work when it hangs looose].

That's your heatsink, and it's very dangerous for the computer to run for long without it... Laying the computer on its side does not harm it, but running it without properly installed cooling aides can be.

I suggest that you contact the manufacturer. Since your computer is less than a year old, hardware issues like this should be covered.. Just don't listen to them when they say reinstalling your OS can fix it, hah hah.

Laptop overheats way too fast...

What is the model number of your machine? Some have design flaws that make them run hot. Also dust is a great insulator. I would take the machine into a repair shop or get a can of compressed air and blow out any fan areas. A laptop cooling pad can be a good idea as well especially if you notice that the machine overheats while sitting on a desk. The noise of the fan is probalay due to the dust coating the heatsync. The fan has to run much faster to move more air to cool the system. Blowing out or having the heatsync cleaned is a good idea here!

Hi, It may be a virus you may want to check on that first. If it is possible for you to scan it on a friend's computer while you are at it you can repair it there too. If not your last resort is formatting the drive using your Bootable Windows Installer CD.
