Re: windscreen wipers not working

It could either be the stalk which you've already replaced (maybe with an equally faulty on) or the relay

How do I fix intermittent operation?

The replacement battery may not have been seated completely in the cavity. There has to be firm contact with the tiny spring at the bottom.

I have the Niki Oregon Series watch WA0019-001 and i rplaced the battery myslf because it stopped working. There was difficuly opening the back, and after replacing the battery, the watch will work...

There are sometimes hidden dangers in replacing batteries which is probably why most makers recommend professionals to do the job.

You seem to have had some success but it sounds as if there is an intermittant contact with the battery. If you feel that you can remove the back again, try removing the battery, cleaning it with surgical spirit (to remove any grease that is naturally on fingers) and replace it.

As an engineer, I would expect that a screw on back should go on easily until it reaches the end of travel, when it will tighten. If it is stiff all the way, they you may have crossed the thread and damaged it. Never apply a large force at the start of screing the back on, as the threads are quite fine and may be easily damaged.

If after trying again, you still have the problem, then go to a watch repairer and discuss what you have done and the problem you are having.

Take care.

Good luck.

My pulsar watch (maybe 7 years old)runs intermittently. It runs most of the time I wear it and stops when I take it off. I had it cleaned. Cleaning didn't seem to help much.

is it battery or automatic or kinetic. first have battery checked if this still does not solve prob ask repairer for movement exchange instead of service as this way you get a new engine...if its automatic a service should have worked as pulsr use seiko movements wich are very good if its kinetic it needs a new capasitor as these last about 5yrs before the need to replace or attempted recharge.

Guess Watch's stop watch is broken?

it's not broken.

let's call the top stopwatch button "a" and the bottom stopwatch button "b." eg, for normal stop watch function press "a" to start timing, press "a" to stop timing, and press "b" to reset.

to reset: press button "a" and "b" simultaneously and release (an easy way to do this is press and hold down "b" then press "a" and release both). this will send both hands spinning. next press "a" intermittently until the second-hand is back to it's desired reset location. then, likewise, press "b" intermittently until the minute hand is zeroed. now with both hands at the correct reset location, again press and release "a" and "b" simultaneously to save these resets and return the watch to normal function mode.

Indicator arm faulty

In modern cars internal parts of an indicator stalks are mostly plastic so forget about repairs. New indicator stalk costs you a fortune. go to ebay and buy a second hand. be very careful if its a DIY job. remove the battery clips to avoid air bag explosion. carefully remove the cover including air bag from the steering. spin the steering to bring it in middle along with your tyres in a straight line. loosen the steering nut and remove airbag wiring plug. unscrew the plastic cover around the stalker. now you'll see stalker with mainly three wiring plugs (it was in my case). unplug it and don't mix it up if possible number it with permanent marker. lose any screw or bolt holding the stalker on its place. remove the old stalker and place the new one. just tight one or two screws and put the steeing on rod and test it by moving the steering left and right side to check the indicator stalks operation (don't connect the battery clips just do it as a cold test because sometimes you'll hear a big clunk noise if stalker tooth is not adjusted in neutral position. take a long beeck type screw driver and push this tooth slightly either up or down (left or right). don't apply too much force as it then don't stays in middle and will go automatically in opposite direction and you have to move it back to get in the middle. If fitted correctly you'll not hear any noise. just test it for left and right indicator. Now the assemble the whole work in reverse order and don't forget to connect your airbag in the last stage. Hope it'll help you in anyway. If you're not willing to do it let it done by a garage. costs you around 60 pounds.

Luminox 3001 watch not keeping time

Because of the way they work, it's quite hard for quartz movements to run consistently slow - so if you find one getting behind, it's usually a sign that it's stopping intermittently. It would do no harm to check that the crown is properly pushed in after you've reset it, but my guess is that the watch will benefit from a new battery. A.

Watch stops intermittently.

Make sure the dial that is used to set your watch is snug against the frame of the watch. Sometimes when people reset the time on their watches they don't push the dial all the way back in which will cause it to stop. If it is an intermitten problem it may be close but not all the way in. Some watches continue to run when they are being set; whereas, some stop when the dial is pulled to reset them.
