The switch/receptacle pictured can be wired a number of ways. If you want to switch the attached receptacle you will leave the tab on between the brass colored screws and attach your HOT wire to the brass screw on the opposite side. The bare or green ground wire will attach to the ground screw. The white Neutral wire will attach to the silver colored screw.

How reset combination lock

1. Open the lock with the factory preset combination of 0005.
2. Find the tab on the end of the part of the locking mechanism that has the numbers.
Combination Reset Tab
3. Flip the tab up (with the combination set to the open combination). When you flip the tab up, you disengage the number dials from the tumblers, so that you can reset the combination without changing the position of the tumblers.
4. Change the combination to the desired combination.
5. Flip the tab back down. The dials are now re-engaged with the tumblers.

How you install a light and plug in in one switch

1) Copy following link for wiring combo device:

2) Neutral wire is required for outlet to work.

3) Outlet will be ON all the time.
Some combo devices can be wired so that switch controls outlet, but other models cannot be wired so switch controls outlet.
Look for break-away fin located between dark screws on combo device. If device has break-away fin, then switch can control outlet.

I"m installing a Cooper Devices

Wiring is suspect.
Black hot wire connects to dark screws.
Break off tab should be intact.
White neutral wire connects to silver screw.
Wire going to switch load connects to brass screw.

I have a leviton combination (2) switch... I want each switch to (naturally) operate (2) different lights - all (white) 4 neutrals are combo in a wire nut and feed is going to the right side top brass...

Don't break away the tab.
It sounds like you have Hot wire connected to wrong side of device.

Electricians don't guess, they test.
Separate wires. Turn power ON.
Test each wire to bare ground.
Tester lights up on Hot wire.

Hot connects to brass screw(s). This will feed power into each switch.
Wires going to Load (lights) connect to each silver screw.

2005 maxima-how to change break lights

Removal and Installation
  1. Position trunk room trim aside.
  2. Disconnect rear combination lamp connector.
  3. Remove rear combination lamp mounting nuts.
  4. Pull rear combination lamp to remove from the vehicle.Installation is in the reverse order of removal.

    Once you have all the nuts removed you will need to pull hard on the lens. They use push clips on the outer side of the lens. As long as you apply an even amount of force you will not damage anything.

On the combination Two Switches #5224 do I break

No need to break the tab... that' on the power IN side of the switch..
You only need one power in (in most cases).
The power outs are separated already.. one goes to your first load and the other will go to the second.
The white wires are your common and are hooked together with the other whites in the box... don't hook them to the switch.
Hope this get's ya all connected... let me know if you need more assistance.

How to disable touchpad

To enable/disable touch pad go to "Device Manager" (right click on My Computer icon on the Desktop). Pick "Mice and other pointing devices", right click on your touch pad, select instal/uninstal. May need to reboot the computer if requested.
However - if you do not have any other pointing device (USB mouse) you will only have keyboard for your disposal.
