Changed radio instramentpanel gages lights went dead

You probably touched a wire wrong and blew the fuse for nighttime illumination, same fuse that lights up the dash. Also, you might've hooked up the vehicle illumination wire wrong in the back of the new radio, causing a short and the fuse blew

Hi Anonymous, you have a hard/dead short that should be easy to find generally they are the easiest. Time to get out your test light and connect it to the power side of the, circuit breaker or the blown fuse receiver, start by tracking the out bound wire towards the ignition switch and beyond if necessary, when the test light quits lighting you are very close to your short. For a free wiring diagram please visit the website above. Good luck and have nice day.

Need to replace back half of a.o smith pool motoer

Do you mean A.O. Smith motor? This is the back half of
the Pool Pump. A.O. Smith motors are the most common motor drive for household pumps, so I believe
that you can easily find the replacement. Just specify
the horsepower (HP) rating, voltage: 220/110, single
phase or three phase. Just send your e-mail comment
for more info. God bless you.
