Take a look at your battery connection point and see if it has a fusible link. If so, thats what's wrong. The fusible link looks like a heavy wire with a bulge in it, usually directly attached to battery. Easily replaceable.

If there is no fusible link, check for a blown fuse or circuit breaker in the first fuse panel attached by a large wire to the battery.

I hope this helps. If not, write back!

2006 peterbilt 335 My blower motor blows on high only . I tested the resistor but I have no power going into it . What else I can check ?


If the fan only works in high, I suspect a failed blower motor resistor. Every vehicle I have worked on that is the indicator that it has failed and replacing it solved the issue.

3006 chevy trailblazer turns over but wont start


That year has not been made yet and we wil be dead if and when it is. 2006 trailblazer could be fuel pump, do a fuel pressure test. CKP sensor scan for rpm, check for codes. Does it crank fast or slow? Try taking a hammer and hit the bottom of the fuel tank while someone turns th key and makes it crank. If it starts replace the fuel pump. See if it is getting spark at plugs by taking a screwdriver and insert in plug wire after you remove from plug and hold just enough away from a metal bracket and have someone turn the key to start and see if you have spark. Do not touch metal part of screwdriver.

96 nissan altima gxe runs good until it gets hot then stalls


I've been there.... A nightmare!!!

Your prolem sounds as the classical Hot Coil problem with no solution. Next time when engine stalls, check for spark, touch the coil and the ignition module. If they feel hot to the touch (can't hold it), chances are there is too much resistance in the High Tension side of the ignintion circuit.
This means the circuit from the coil to the spark plugs has too much resistance. Since you already changed everything I have to ask a question: Is everything as original specs??

When I had this problem it resulted that the gap between the terminals of the distributor cap (new) and rotor where to big, This created great resistance which heated the coil and quit sending spark.

Perhaps there is something in the High Tension circuit which is out of original specs. Is the gap in spark plugs correct?
Try an old distibutor cap. Do the metal contacts in the spark plug cables touch the metal of the spark plug contact?
Does the metal contact from the cable touch the metal from the coil's contact? Are they dry?

Check things which can create a gap where electriciy has to "jump" to complete its way to the spark plug. These are the ones which cause the hot coil and hot module trouble.

Something is draining battery if not started for 2 days. replaced battery but condition continues. what could be draining my battery?


Seen this "mystery drain" many times. Check spark at the battery to see how big the drain is. For this simple test, blow away any (explosive) battery charging fumes. Leave one terminal on and gently touch the other to its post in fairly dark surroundings. Then try it again with the wires taken off the alternator. Your spark is now probably much less. Usually bad diodes leaking electricity backwards through the alternator cause this drain. Replace the alternator or the diode pack inside it. Some mechanics recommend actually measuring the drain.... hahaha. OK whatever.

How to replace spark plugs in a kia sorento


The 2006 KIA Sorento is a smaller SUV with a 3.5-liter V6 engine. This engine uses six spark plugs to run the engine properly. There will be three spark plugs on each side of the engine. All six spark plugs will need to be changed at the same time to ensure that all six are working equally. The spark plugs are in plain sight on the right and left side of the engine and have rubber wires connected to the top of each one.
  1. 1 Insert the edge of the spark-plug gapping tool under the meal arm in the center of the one of the new spark plugs and turn the gapper until the number .038 is in the center of the metal arm. Repeat this for all other new spark plugs.
  2. 2 Open the hood of the 2006 KIA Sorento and remove a rubber wire from one of the spark plugs. Use the ratchet and spark-plug socket to remove that spark plug from the engine.
  3. 3 Insert the new spark plug into the hole where the old plug was. Hand-tighten the new spark plug until you are certain it is seated properly, then tighten it further using the ratchet and spark-plug socket. Replace the rubber wire to the top of the new spark plug.
  4. 4 Repeat for all other new spark plugs. Once you have replaced all six spark plugs and replace the rubber wires to the tops of them, close the hood.

Sparking under vehicle when trying to start. It has a new battery and new cylanoid.


That sounds like a loose cable from the ignition solenoid down at the starter, or the cable between the starter and the starter solenoid is exposed and touching metal ground on the vehicle. Check the condition of the cable to the starter and also be sure that it is tight, and not touching any metal ground surfaces on the vehicle, and if there is nothing wrong with either then the starter is most likely is faulty.

It won't turn over. I put new starter,alt. cables starter relay switch battery etc


go to starter, with the test light make sure the big terminal comes from the battery has power.
then have some one start the car while you touch the smaller terminal with the test light.
if it has power while start then check the starter again
also check if the engine can turn by hand ( what I mean is use a socket and a ratchet to turn the crank bolt at crank pulley to see if the engine is turning )
if the engine turn, the big terminal has power, the small terminal has power then the starter is defected.
if engine turns, big terminal has power, small terminal has not then check the relay, the switch, the fuse and wiring again
