Re: check engine light 2001 ford taurus

Before you do anything, try removing the battery cable for a couple of minutes and then reinstalling it. This will clear the faults in the ECU. If the code comes up again, then you'll need to check your wiring.

Chevrolet check engine code 113

Intake Air Temperature Circuit High Input

The Intake Air Temperature Sensor measures the rise and fall of the air temperature inside the Intake Manifold. This provides critical data needed for the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) to control the Air Fuel Ratio, the Ignition Spark Timing and many components of the Emission Control Systems.

Code P0113 sets when the voltage signal to the PCM from the Intake Air Temperature Sensor Circuit stays above 4.5 volts while the Coolant Temperature Voltage readings are rising and falling within an appropriate range.

Common Problems That Trigger the P0113 Code are
Defective Intake Air Temperature Sensor Dirty air filter Defective Mass Air Flow Sensor Faulty or corroded Intake Air Temperature Sensor wiring or connections

What does the code 00518 mean on a vw bora 2.0

Hello the fault means:

Throttle Position Sensor - Signal Out of Range (G69) Also check for loose ECM power relay.

The fault can be solved by cleaning the throttle valve and reseting the sensor after the valve is been cleaned for dirt.
The fault comes when the valve does not close properly.
This is not a home job.
The wv dealer can clean and reset the sensor for you.

Here is more fault codes in pdf format:

Dell xps studio read/write error system will not fire up 4 beep

If you have added any new hardware, remove it and try again. You may have also jarred loose the memory chips, check and reseat all memory. If you have not been in the case at all and all the memory seems seated, remove one memory chip (hopefully you have multiple in the computer), and try again. If this fails, trade the memory chip you removed for the one in the computer. Repeat untill you have checked all memory chips. Hopefully one chip will cause a failure every time and we then know we have a bad memory chip to replace.

I hope this was helpfull

While reading my novel the screen went white, i have tried holding the power button and the volume button but no message appears,i have tried charging it but i dont get a red or green light

When you restart, do you continue to have a white screen? If you do, it is probably the video inverter. Usually an inexpensive ebay item. Just take the bezel off your screen, the inverter is located at the bottom center. It has wires at each end. Unplug them. It may have 1 or 2 screws that need to be removed. Reverse this proccess with your new inverter.
If you are getting no lights at all it could be a bad power port or bad charger. Try to gently wiggle the plug around. If you get no lights, check the charger, you may need to replace it. If you get any lights then the solder on that port has probably broke loose. Very common. This involves a complete disection of your laptop, and the power port will have to be replaced. Only do this if you have good soldering skills. I would

I have an Audi A4 1.9 TDI. Motor code: AWX. Prb: When accelerate, the turbo worked properly but after 120 km, the turbo cut off and when i switch off and on the engine, the turbo restart to work. Can you...

This question is not very detailed but I will attempt to lead you in a few directions: A very important detail would be what is the model year of your car? Unless more specific information is given this answer will seem quite generic.

By motherboard you mean ECU, are you running the stock on or a modified one?
-If stock then I would suggest taking it to a dealer or auto shop to see if your car is throwing any OBD/CAN codes.

-If modified then you should call the vendor you purchased the chip from.

Other common causes of limp mode:
-Bad Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF/MAP): Codes would be present for this
-Wastegate is damaged
-Vacuum leak somewhere in your intake track (again is your car stock or modified?)
-You have a fueling issue (Codes would be present for this)

Five long beeps at a range of five seconds then, repeats

Five long beeps for a modern motherboards indicates a processor failure. If you wish to remove the processor and re-seat it (reconnect it to see if it begins to work again) make sure to get some thermal compound to put between the CPU chip and the heatsink. More info at:
POST AMI BIOS beep codes
  • 1 - Memory refresh timer error
  • 2 - Parity error in base memory (first 64 KiB block)
  • 3 - Base memory read/write test error
  • 4 - Mother board timer not operational (check all PSU to MB connectors seated)
  • 5 - Processor failure
  • 6 - 8042 Gate A20 test error (cannot switch to protected mode)
  • 7 - General exception error (processor exception interrupt error)
  • 8 - Display memory error (system video adapter)
  • 9 - AMI BIOS ROM checksum error
  • 10 - CMOS shutdown register read/write error
  • 11 - Cache memory test failed
  • 12 - Mother board does not detect a RAM module (continuous beeping)

GA-7N400 Pro2 at startup i hawe long separate continus beeps

Possibly Ram, try and see if removing and replacing helps
Other causes may be voltage issues ( check the bios and see what the various rails are telling you)
eg: there should be readings for 12 volts 5 volts and 3 volts, if any are + or - by 10%, there is an issue with the voltge controller. You might want to try a replacement PSU?

After this.. bad video ( check by installing a video card)
Temperature warnings ( check in bios to see under PC health status) what the cpu and board temps are running at, if above 70 degrees...overheating issue or more likely at start up, board thinks that the CPU fan is not running fast enough or not working. If fan IS working, you have a problem with the CPU fan sensor, will need to replace mobo

My External Hard Drive isn't working anymore, to say the just of it. It's on, lights on(not flashing, it flashes when it's being written to or accessed), usually has a regular clicking noise from it...

When a hard drive makes a clicking noise, this indicates the hard drive has failed and if the BIOS and the Computer Management does not detect it, then this confirm a hard disk failure.
To get the computer operating again, replace the hard disk, then install Windows on the hard disk using the Windows installation CD and the Windows product installation code that is on the label on the computer then install the device drivers and your programs.

Did not boot and with 3 beep sound

Remove added memory
If you've recently added or tried to add additional memory to the computer and have started getting these beeps. Remove all new memory you've added to the computer. If the computer works fine after removing the new memory you're encountering either an incompatibility or defective new memory.
  • Additional information about determining the type of memory to use in a memory upgrade can be found on document CH000910.
Open computer and reseat memory
Sometimes when the computer is moved and/or over time a memory stick can become loose causing the computer to be unable to read the memory or get errors as it's reading it. Try fixing this issue by opening the computer removing each of the memory sticks you have in the computer and then placing them back into the computer.
Swap memory location
If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer.
If you have more than one stick of memory try removing all but one stick of memory and boot the computer. If this does not resolve the issue try removing that stick of memory and try one of the other sticks of memory.
Try another computers memory
If you have access to another computer that uses the same type of memory try using its known good memory in your computer.
If another computers memory works you know that you have bad memory. If another computers memory does not work and it is compatible with your computer unfortunately your motherboard and/or the slots on the motherboard are defective causing it to be unable to properly read the memory, which means the motherboard will have to be replaced.
Replace memory
If you've determined or believe that the memory in y our computer is bad we suggest that you replace it.
