Left turn signal does not flash when either parking or headlights are on, right signal works ok left turn signal lights are on just not blinking when lights are on, they work ok when lights off

This is usually a bad earth problem, check where the harness earth is then try connecting the earth wire to a different part of the car body in case the rust and Bondo (plastic filler) is so prolific that a good connection is not possible. Then clean all the earth connection point on the globes, the harness connection point, & chassis grounds etc

Truck thinks because trailer has led's there is a fault with indicators

Connection is a connection. Brown is running lights, green is right and yellow left. If they're connect right, there's no fault showing. Makes no diff whether led or other older bulbs. Check your connections. ALWAYS be sure the ground is good. Hook jumper cables to trailor frame and vehicle frame to test ground.

Orange/green lights flashing on canon mp 510. computer says not connected but all leads in place. can i fix this

I would suggest switching everything off, unplugging and starting all over again, it may be that simple.
Plan B :Un-install the driver and reinstall.
Plan C :Check that the MP510 is the default printer via Control Panel/Hardware & Sound/Printers. Click printer icon and then right click or use task bar.
The flashing lights indicate a fault on the printer itself so check for paper jams, ink cartridges in place etc.

I have a punch p850.4 amp that goes into protect mode as soon as its powered up , have checked and double checked all connections to make sure its all hooked right . even downloaded the pdf for the amp .

I have exactly the same problem, try a different speaker wire from your sub terminal to your amp terminal, if no luck you may have a loose connection on the wires on your sub, due to vibrations etc they can sometimes come loose, but very rare. worth checking though. 1 loose connection can make the amp go into protection mode. If all of these are fine, start from the beginning, ( I have tried this and i think its my speaker wire shorted out) 1st dissconnect all wires from amp. Then connect ground first, then your live. then power up amp, it it works andd not in protect mode your earth and live are fine, then connect your remote, then test, then speaker wire , then test, that way you can rule out bad connections and find any fault.

My sub woofer has only speaker wire connections. how can i connect to port on the dh500

I don't think you can. The port will be for a powered subwoofer. However you simply connect the one or both main speaker channels via your sub speaker terminals and the main left or right (or both) speakers to the other terminals on your subwoofer. It all depends on how many speaker terminals there is on the sub. If there are two- one input & one output- connect just the right main speaker etc.
Remember the the speaker out of the amp go to the imput of the sub. And the sub outputs go the loudspeaker.

400 watt amplifier not working

Disconnect all the speaker wires from the amplifier that runs the 6-speaker system. Switch off the amplifier or disconnect the remote turn-on wire, then re-connect it. Does the power light still flash with no speakers connected? If so, your amplifier is probably damaged. If not, then connect one speaker and see if it plays. If it doesn't, disconnect the first speaker and connect a different one. If the first speaker plays, continue connecting the rest of the speakers until you find the one that's causing the problem.
