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!

If the problem only happened after you installed a new fan relay then I suspect that the ground is not connecting, causing constant power to the relay. The relay may be faulty too even if it's new. You need to use an ohm meter to test the relay and connections. Post them here if you like.

Green is the new color of business

One of the hottest colors in business marketing these days is bright green. Increasingly, customers prefer brands that use resources wisely and respect the environment.
In a 2007 survey of "green" brands, for example, consultant Landor Associates found that consumer interest in sustainable products has soared, noting "nearly all Americans display green attitudes and behaviors versus a year ago." Plus, customers will now pay a premium to support "green" efforts. Just look at the success of Whole Foods Market, the popular retailer of natural and organic foods.
Going green also has been found to cut operating costs. Home-based businesses can reduce energy bills by as much as 30 percent, according to Energy Star, a government program that helps businesses and consumers conserve energy. Some changes do require investments that will pay over time, such as new energy-efficient air conditioners or windows. But many practices, big and small, have no up-front costs and can still save you money.
Then there’s the compelling argument of securing your future. Small businesses, which operate on slim margins and scant insurance, tend to be hardest hit by extreme weather and climate change. Ski operators, food producers, landscapers, retailers, distributors, and service providers of every stripe face higher costs and slowed sales in the face of hurricanes and global warming.
So while it may be hard to imagine that one newfangled light bulb or a **** of recycled paper actually makes a difference when stacked against the worldwide problems, the fact is that each choice counts.
"When people begin to understand how each decision they make has an impact on an entire industry or supply chain, they will see how even small actions can contribute to change," says Anna Clark at EarthPeople, a Dallas consulting firm that advises companies on using environmentally friendly resources.
Reduce, recycle, reuse Small businesses can make the shift to sustainable practices much more quickly than can their larger counterparts. So if you start now and promote your new green profile to customers, you can reap the rewards before deep-pocketed competitors jump in.
Here’s a practical menu of ways to go green. Choose those that make sense for you. Just remember: Environmentally focused consumers are now skeptical of talk. You must demonstrate real commitment to earn their trust and dollars.
Step 1: Measure your carbon footprint Before making any changes, you must figure out how your business consumes resources. Overall, consider your energy and water use, what can be recycled, and the quality of your environment and indoor air.
An energy audit from your local utility is a good place to start. Call and ask for help. Most utilities offer free advice about becoming energy efficient, either on site or via phone. The audit will recommend improvements and ways to reduce costs.

Tip Tip: To figure your energy use, try this carbon footprint calculator.
Step 2: Draft a strategic plan Don’t try to do everything at once. Instead, set up a plan to phase in changes as you have the time and resources. Be flexible.
To reduce costs and “green” your workplace, consider these six ideas.
  1. Switch to electronic communications. Try using Microsoft Office applications or Adobe PDF for all your documents. Use paper only when clients request it. That includes invoices, newsletters and marketing messages, NDAs, proposals, contracts (with electronic signatures or ask clients to print and fax only the last page with the signature).You can also opt for online banking, bill payment, and statements.
  2. Mind the basics.
    • Use a programmable thermostat that’s set to turn up and down depending on when spaces are occupied.
    • Install timers on lights and electric equipment so electricity shuts down over night, weekends, and holidays.
    • Disconnect equipment you don’t much use to avoid phantom electricity costs.
    • Use high-efficiency light bulbs, such as compact fluorescents. Typically, compact fluorescent lights will cost you 75 percent less to run and last 10 times as long.
    • Shop for energy-efficient computers, monitors, fax machines, printers, copiers, and so on. The EnergyStar label is one good indicator.
    • Get annual checkups and check all filters for HVAC systems (heating, ventilating, and air-conditioning) to ensure you’re not wasting money and energy.
    • Replace washers on dripping faucets. One faucet that drips once every second adds up to 2,700 gallons of water per year.
  3. Engage your customers. Retailers, restaurants, coffee bars, caterers, and the like can ask customers to bring their own bags and mugs. Then, reward such customers with discounts or perks.

  4. Don't be a technology hog. An Energy Awareness Campaign, sponsored by software solutions provider 1E, found that more than 31 million of the country’s 104 million office computers are left on overnight. “Across the nation, this adds up to more than $1.72 billion dollars and almost 15 million tons of CO2 emissions,” according to the campaign survey.Energy costs run as much as 10 percent of larger companies' technology budgets. Even at a small business, the savings can be significant. Use your computers’ power management and automated shutdown features to conserve energy, and do your part.
  5. Harness micropower. You may be surprised to find how business-friendly renewable energy technology has become. Choices range from a small solar device that can recharge your mobile or PDA to microturbines, about the size of a refrigerator, which generate enough power for most small businesses.
    Other options include solar water heaters that can work for laundries or small restaurants, as well as wind and hydropower products.
    For advice on renewable energy for small business, see the National Renewable Energy Laboratory or call your state environmental agency.
  6. Recycle technology and peripherals. You may already be using rechargeable batteries for office electronics because these are more cost-effective. But, eventually, even rechargeables stop working. Instead of tossing them in the trash or an empty drawer, put them to use. Retailers such as Office Depot, Staples, Office Max, Best Buy, and others have collection centers to recycle old devices and batteries. Just drop off what you don’t need.Across the country, nonprofit groups have also stepped in to help, such as the Call2Recycle program from Rechargeable Battery Recycling Corporation.
Step 3: Promote your greener business Once you're on the path to green, let your customers know, whether by newsletter, an e-mail blast, phone conversations, or other marketing channels (billboard on the highway, anyone?).
Also, think beyond simply saving energy or water. You might extend your product line into sustainable versions of what you sell—say, financial services for green businesses if you’re an accountant, or recycled equipment if you’re a technology provider.
One thing's for sure: The market for green products and practices is attracting more and more folding green every day. You may want to go for that kind of green

Why does my computer dell optiplex gx 270 not fully support direct x 8.1

Your video card determines Direct X support. If you look at a newer video card and read the tech specs most of them now support Direct X 10 or higher.

I hope this helps!

Compaq proliant 5500 server wont power up

In my experience when a server/computer does absolutely nothing when the power button is pressed it is a dead processor. That may not be the case in your situation. It could be as simple as a defective power switch. Is the switch a soft touch or does it push in and click? Does the switch feel normal when pushed? One of the power supplies could also be bad. Do you have any good power supplies to test in the server? Were there any power outages recently that could have caused damage to the PSU? I would start with checking the switch. You could hook up a circuit tester and see if the switch completes the circuit when depressed. Also take a look inside the server and look for any loose connections on the mainboard. It is possible the wire for the power switch has come loose.

Compaq proliant 5500 server P2 dual xeon processors. Will not power on. green lights on both powers supplies are on - green lights on Mother board and LCD on front are on but absolutely nothing happens...

I am wondering if you had been doing some work to this when this problem started. Did you take the wires off for the power switch? I have noticed that sometimes if you pull the wires off of the motherboard and put them back on and you put the connector on backwards (assuming that its a 2 wire cable for the front panel) it may not work. Also, if you have a screwdriver handy which Im sure you do, take the plug off of the motherboard and jump the 2 pins that start the system. If it makes the system work then change the switch. If that does not work then try checking the power supplies. Just because the light is no does not mean that the power supply is working correctly. Will the system work with just one power supply hooked up. If so try one at a time. I have also had luck with re-seating the processor and the system then booted correctly. Try reseating the ram. Bad drives, cards and cables can make the system not start. Unplug everything that you can and if it starts, plug one thing in at a time and see if you can eliminate the bad part. Hope this helps...

Dell dimension 8300 no power

Bad news:

In my experiance you have a fried mother board.

Question are you getting any display from your monitor - if you are there is hope - if not the same thing that took out the power suply has probably fried the motherboard.

The only other thing I would sugest is to flash the BIOS - either locate JP1 or remove the battery (looks like a whatch battery) and cross the terminals with a screwdriver - re-install the battery and see how it goes.

Point: No display = no motherboard.

Good news is that the RAM, Procesor and other components are probably good.

Laptop will not power up

you may have inadvertently killed the power module of the laptop. that has happened to me a couple of times, so far, and repair has always been in the hundreds of dollars. I hope that is not the problem in your case. Have you tried using a universal power supply to make sure that your power supply is not the issue? Anyways, the best of luck to you.
