Where is the fuel pump relay on 2006 Dodge Ram 1500 4.7


There isn't a fuel pump relay , it is controlled by the totally integrated power module !

MODULE-TOTALLY INTEGRATED POWER

DESCRIPTION

The Totally Integrated Power Module (2)(TIPM) is a

combination unit that performs the functions of the

Power Distribution Center (PDC) and the Front Control

Module. The TIPM is a printed circuit board based

module that contains fuses, internal relays and a

microprocessor that performs the functions previously

executed by the FCM. The TIPM (2) is located in the

engine compartment, next to the battery (1) and connects

directly to the B+ cable (5) via a stud located on

top of the unit. The ground connection is via electrical

connectors. The TIPM provides the primary means of

voltage distribution and protection for the entire vehicle.

The molded plastic TIPM housing includes a base and

cover. The TIPM cover is easily opened or removed

for service and has a fuse and relay layout map integral

to the inside surface of the cover. The TIPM housing

base and cover are secured in place via mounting

tabs. The mounting tabs secure the TIPM (2) to the

battery tray mounting bracket (3).

OPERATION

All of the current from the battery and the generator output enters the Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM) via

a stud on the top of the module. The TIPM cover is removed to access the fuses or relays. Internal connections of

all of the power distribution center circuits is accomplished by a combination of bus bars and a printed circuit board.

For complete circuit diagrams, refer to the appropriate wiring information. The wiring information includes wiring

diagrams, proper wire and connector repair procedures, details of wire harness routing and retention, connector
pin-out information and location views for the various wire harness connectors, splices and grounds.

How to install memory stixs


In an Acer Extenza 5420 series of Notebook PC?

Well you came to the right place

Here have a seat, and let me show you;

1) Remove ALL power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.

2) Here is a Bottom view of your laptop,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Acer-Extensa-5420-Case-Bottom-15-4-Black-Cover-Speakers-Original-Genuine-Laptop-/170983023419?pt=US_Computer_Cases&hash=item27cf61e33b

Bottom left corner shows the Battery has been removed.
Remove the large panel above it,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Acer-Extensa-5420-5520-Hard-Drive-RAM-Memory-Bottom-Cover-Door-60-4T305-002-/190741766831?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2c691862af

Looks to be 6 Philips head screws to remove.
The panel lifts up on the LEFT side. There are TABS extruded from this large panel, which go into the Base Enclosure, (Bottom Cover), on the Right side.

From the Specifications on Acer's Support website,

http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/notebook/0000/Acer/Extensa5420/Extensa5420sp2.shtml

,it states;

System Memory: -> Up to 2GB of DDR2 667MHz memory; upgradeable to 4GB using two SO-DIMM ram memory modules.
(Dual-channel support)

From what I can see, looking at the motherboard by itself; there are TWO ram memory slots,

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Acer-Extensa-5120-5420-7120-7420-TravelMate-5220-AMD-Motherboard-MB-TKP01-002-/350455821339?pt=Motherboards&hash=item5198cb741b

Towards the Top you see the White processor socket. Upper corners are cut off, and there is a single screw in the top/middle.
Right above it are two white Ram Memory slots.

EACH ram memory slot will support (Use) 2GB of DDR2 at 667MHz.

2GB = Amount
DDR2 stands for DDR2 Sdram, and is it SO-DIMM to fit in a laptop.
667MHz stands for 667MegaHertz.
The frequency rate ('Speed') that the Ram Memory operates at.

The TOTAL amount of ram memory for the laptop is 4GB.
That means you can use two modules, ('Sticks') of DDR2 Sdram at 667MHz.
Or also stated as PC2-5300.

Just make SURE it is SO-DIMM, or you will be getting the larger DIMM ram memory used in a desktop computer.
An example of SO-DIMM,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:1GB_DDR2_SO-DIMM.png

Note the Side Notch on Each side.
The half-moon cutout.
Note the Locating Notch on the Bottom.

Also;
Everywhere on the Ram Memory module, EXCEPT the gold plated contact pins at the Bottom; is the BODY.

The Body is coated with a see-through protective plastic.
Handle the Ram Memory module by the Body.
Refrain from touching the gold plated contact pins.

[WORK on a table. {Or workbench} DO NOT work on a bed, couch, or directly on a carpet floor! High areas of Static electricity.
Static WILL fry out, (Short Circuit) computer hardware components]

If you have two Ram Memory modules, one will be stacked on top of the other one. You remove the top one first, then access the bottom one.

To remove a ram memory module, simply ease the spring clips on either side -> OUT.
Out away from the Ram Memory module.
This action takes the 'Bumps' on the Spring Clips, out of the Side Notches on the Ram Memory module.

DO NOT get carried away. Just ease one spring clip out, then ease the other one out. You can bend the spring clips if you are too rough.
When both spring clip 'bumps' are out of the way, the Ram Memory module will spring up slightly.

Remove AT THAT ANGLE.

Slide the Ram Memory module out, at the same slight angle, (30 degrees?), that it just popped up to.

IF you lift the Ram Memory module straight up, you WILL damage the gold plated contact pins on the bottom of the Ram Memory module; and the contact pins in the Ram Memory slot.

To install a Ram Memory module, look at the location of the Locating Notch on the Bottom.
This aligns with a Locating Lug, in the bottom of the ram memory slot.
ONLY goes in one way.

Locating Notch aligned with Locating Lug, slide the Ram Memory module in, in the SAME slight angle it came out at.
Make sure the gold plated contact pins of the Ram Memory module, are well seated in the ram memory slot.

(Ram Memory module is pushed in tightly, in the Ram Memory slot)
Then press down on the tilted up side, until the spring clips lock in place.

Here is a video demonstrating the above, but NOT your laptop,

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MbPaR1Ci-Ug

IF, you are ONLY installing ONE Ram Memory module, it MUST go in Slot 1. Also known as DIMM 1.

The Processor (CPU) reads what is in Slot 1 -> F-I-R-S-T.

Know this;
If you are using the regular Windows XP Home, or Pro; it is the 32-bit version.
If it is the Windows XP Pro 64-bit version, it will state so.
Either on the body of the laptop, or go to System Properties.

[Left-click on Start > then Right-click on My Computer.
Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the drop down list ]

Windows Vista 64-bit will state so also.

Point?
IF you have a 32-bit Operating System, your laptop will ONLY recognize about 3.2 to 3.5GB of ram memory; if you have 4GB installed.

Takes a 64-bit Operating System to recognize all 4GB.

Instructions

1

Prepare the laptop for disassembly. Shut down the laptop completely, then wait a few minutes before removing the battery and unplugging the AC adapter. Turn the laptop over and lay it down on a flat surface so that the battery area is facing away from you and the hard drive is located at the bottom left corner.
2

Remove the hard drive cover. Remove the two screws located on the left side of the hard drive cover, then lift the cover to remove it completely from the unit.
3

Remove the memory cover. Unscrew the eight screws holding the memory board in place; this cover is located above the Gateway product sticker.
4

Disconnect the Wi-Fi adaptor. Remove the Wi-Fi cover by unscrewing the single screw holding the Wi-Fi adapter in place; this is located directly above the hard drive. Remove the two cables connecting the wireless card to the adapter and snap the card out of the holder.
5

Remove the memory modules. Gateway computers typically have two memory modules located in the center of the motherboard; lift these out gently with your fingers and set them aside.
6

Release the heat sink. Unscrew the four screws around the heat sink assembly; this unit is located to the left of the ventilation fan and is surrounded by a copper base. Carefully lift the heat sink and the cooling fan off the unit and unplug the cable attaching it.
7

Remove the CD/DVD drive. Unscrew the small screw located to the left of the CD/DVD drive, then push the drive out to remove it from the laptop completely.
8

Remove all screws around the base of the laptop. You will now be left with a total of 18 screws located around the edge of the base of the laptop, and in between the stickers and hardware components in the center. Remove all of these carefully and set aside in a safe place.
9

Prepare the cover for removal. Turn the laptop up on its edge so that the back of the laptop is facing you; you will see two screws on the hinges of the computer. Unscrew these and set them aside.
10

Remove the hinge cover. Open the laptop so that the screen is laying flat; use the flathead screwdriver to pry open the hinge cover and pull it off gently with your fingers.
11

Remove the keyboard. Lift up the keyboard and reach behind it to release the cable. You will need to tug gently on the cable to unhook it from the motherboard.
12

Unhook the LCD screen from the notebook. Unplug the Wi-Fi antenna cables located on the right side of the motherboard directly under the screen, then unplug the video cable located directly under the hinge cover. Remove the pair of screws located to the left and right of the LCD screen and gently lift the LCD screen off the notebook's base unit.
13

Remove the system board. Turn the base unit over and unscrew the five screws securing the motherboard to the base. Two of these are located near the hinge cover, and two are located beneath and to the right of the hard drive unit. The fifth is located a few inches below the top right edge of the laptop.
14

Disconnect the motherboard. Lift the system board, then unhook the cable connecting it to the base unit.

Constant beeping on power up can be a memory issue.

Locate the memory module and reseat it by taking it out and putting it back. Do this with the battery and power adaptor out. The module is normally located under a cover on the base of the computer.
