2007 pontiac G6 plate light not working. Put new bulb in and still don't work. Is there a fuse to check?

the license light works off of the taillight circuit. check for power and ground at the socket, if you don`t have one or either then you will have to check the wire from the socket to find out were the lose of power to the wire is and repair.

Legrand Circuit Breaker Wiring

When fixya appears on 1st page of search for product, then either the product number is not right or product is older or product number is not exact.
What voltage are you using?
What is a Legrand 060-12?
What is a C2 Rcd?
What controls the auto function overnight... a timer?
Which timer...?
Probably a change in wiring at timer will work, but then the timer buttons might not have any affect for override on-off.
You could put in a DPDT bypass switch or bypass timer... that connects to incoming wires before the auto timer and then connects to wires after timer.

Legrand 03700

Check you have 230V power on terminals 1-2.
Reset timer: on bottom row of buttons, push and hold both buttons for a few moment and then release. Then reprogram.

I triger power switch but dose not work mother board

Check to see if the problem is the Power On switch, or the Power Supply.
Bypass the Power On switch.

[For the motherboard user manual;
Go to the heading, to the upper right in blue - Links and Resources.
{Don't believe we can use the Ampersand on here. Let's try & }

In the list below it click on - Motherboard Manual
Click on the blue - [ Download ] for the second file listed.
MNL - 0660 (English)
P4DL6 / P4DLR / P4DLR+ ]

The SuperMicro P4DL6 motherboard can use a 20-pin ATX main power cable, OR a 24-pin ATX main power cable.

Suggest you use a Power Supply, that has a 24-pin ATX main power cable.
A 20-pin ATX main power cable, does NOT provide enough power to the motherboard.

General example of a 20-pin ATX main power cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard,

Color of the connectors does NOT matter ]

General example of a 24-pin ATX main power cable, and it's respective connector on the motherboard,

Note the additional power wires.
3.3 Volts (Orange), 5 Volts (Red) { 2 of them }, and a Ground wire. (Black)

Which type of ATX main power cable are you using? Don't know. You haven't stated it.

For both,....look at the Green wire. This is the Soft Power On wire.
(Abbreviated as PS_ON)
A jumper wire is used to jump from the Green wire, to ANY Black wire.
ALL Black wires are Ground wires.

Go to the link with the 24-pin ATX main power cable, in it.
Look at the photo to the far right. See the Green wire?
See all the Black wires?

The preferred jumper wire is a paper clip, straightened out, then bent into a U-shape. The middle of the U is wrapped a few times, with black plastic electrical tape. This taped area is for your fingers, and thumb to hold onto.

Turn the U over. Taped middle is up. There are now two 'legs'.
These legs go down into the socket holes, of the Green wire, and ANY Black wire.

One 'leg' down into the socket hole of the Green wire, the other 'leg' down into a socket hole with ANY Black wire.
The 'leg' of the jumper wire, goes down RIGHT NEXT TO the wire already in the socket hole.

The 'leg' has to go down into the socket hole, (Next to the wire already in the socket hole), pretty far.
It has to go past the insulation of the wire, and touch a metal terminal, that is on the end of the wire.

Look at the middle photo. Here you can see the metal terminals, in the socket holes.

Again, Power Supply plugged into power. ATX main power cable plugged into the motherboard, just like the photo to the far right.
The jumper wire makes a contact of no more than 2 seconds.

(Stick the jumper wire down in the socket holes, no more than 2 seconds, then pull it out.
The ATX power on switch is a Momentary Contact Switch )

Power supply comes on? You have a bad Power On switch,

Power supply does NOT come on? You have a bad Power Supply.

My Dell Dimension 5150 will not turn on? please help



Problem could be a $5 ATX power on switch, or the Power Supply.

I'll show you an easy test to determine which one it is.

Dell Support > Dimension 5150 Desktop PC > Service Manual,

BEFORE beginning;

1) Work on a table.
A couch, a bed, or directly on a carpet floor, are HIGH areas of Static electricity.

2) FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions.

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components inside a computer.

Relieve your body of Static BEFORE working on your computer.

Computer on a table, computer Unplugged from power, computer case open.
TOUCH an unpainted surface of the metal frame, of the open computer case.
This action will relieve your body of Static.

Should you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to touch the metal frame again upon your return.

3) In the list of the Service Manual, left-click on - Removing the computer cover.

Once the computer cover is removed, I want you to click on -
Technical Overview - in the Service Manual list.

On this page click on - System Board Components
Here you see an illustration of your motherboard. There are no hardware parts installed on it. Makes it better to see without all the cables in the way.

(There is no Processor, Ram Memory, add-on cards, or power cables plugged in, for a few examples)

Looking at the illustration of the motherboard, look down at the bottom right.
Look at the connector on the motherboard that has -
power connector (ATXPWR1) pointing to it.

Long connector that has 24 square socket holes in it. (Two columns of 12 socket holes)

Here is a photo of the motherboard,

Left-click on the photo to enlarge.
In this photo you see the connector again. It is to the bottom right.
White in color, and two columns of 12 socket holes.

The 24-pin ATX main power cable, from the Power Supply, plugs in here.

This is a more in-depth look at the connector on the motherboard, and the 24-pin ATX main power cable, that plugs into it,

NOTE* Color of connector on motherboard, and connector on power cable, DOES NOT MATTER. Can be ANY color.

What I wish you to do is bypass the Power On switch.
This has NOTHING to do with the Power On switch.

(The Power On switch, is located inside the plastic Power On button assembly)

Look at the photo all the way to the right. This shows the 24-pin ATX main power cable, plugged into the motherboard. That is the way you want it.

Looking at the photo notice the Green wire. This is the Soft Power On wire.
Abbreviated as PS_ON.

Look at the Black wires next to it. ANY Black wire is a Ground wire.
You will use a jumper wire to connect the Green wire, to ANY Black wire.

The preferred jumper wire is a paper clip.
Straighten the paper clip out. __________________
Now bend the paper clip into a U-shape.

Wrap black plastic electrical tape around the middle of the U.
This is for your fingers, and thumb to hold onto.
The 'legs' of the U are what you use.
(It is turned upside down)

Again look at the green wire, and the socket hole it goes into.
The wire, and it's insulation (Green) go down into the socket hole, pretty far.
At the end of the wire is a metal terminal. Looks like this,

Power cable plugged into the motherboard you won't see it. Just wanted you to know what it looks like.

One leg of the U-shaped jumper wire, (Paper clip), goes down into the socket hole, with the Green wire.
Goes down RIGHT NEXT TO the Green wire, and MUST touch that metal terminal.

The paper clip leg slides down in the socket hole, right next to the Green wire, and touches the metal terminal.

The other leg of the paper clip goes down into a socket hole, RIGHT NEXT TO
ANY Black wire. Has to touch the metal terminal.

Computer plugged into power, hold the black plastic electrical tape, and slide the legs of the paper clip, into those two socket holes.

The contact time made is no more than 2 seconds.

(Worried about being shocked? Don't be. It is 5 Volts DC.
In comparison two D cell flashlight batteries produce 3 Volts DC.

HOWEVER, there may be a small spark. Just want to let you know in advance, so you don't freak out )

Power Supply comes on? You have a bad ATX Power On switch.

One example,

Power Supply does NOT come on? You have a bad Power Supply.

Nothing to do with the motherboard.

Need recommendations for a Power Supply, and how to install it?

You don't want this answer but you need a new motherboard. If you've broken pins off the processor socket you won't get it working. They don't sell replacement processor sockets, you have an effectively dead motherboard.

How can i set the on and off of my legrand timer switch

You posted under GE timer, but say you have Legrand, and don't include the model number or type of Legrand timer.

1) The only Legrand timer I have in my files is the RT1 countdown timer
To set RT1, you push one of the buttons, and fan-or-light turns on for a duration of time, then automatically turns off. Use the large button as ordinary light switch.

2) Legrand also makes commercial line of timers, including din rail timers and pin-type timers

3) If this is not your timer, add a comment and include in-focus photo of your timer for possible identification.

Also take advantage of fixya expert assistance live.
For a price, expert works with you while you work on timer or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.
