I have G6 convertible sensor "top not secure" warning on panel. However secure and working. The hard top just stopped opening. Please advise Deborah

Before taking this problem to the dealer, you might check this quick fix. I had the same problem on my 2007 Pontiac G6 Gt Convertible, and just resolved it.
First, you can access your trunk by disconnecting, and then reconnecting your negative battery terminal-this clears the safety code momentarily allowing the trunk to be opened using your trunk release button.
After you have the trunk open, check the wiring harness located in the top right corner of the trunk lid where the hinge is attached to the trunk lid. My wiring harness had come loose, allowing a wire to get stuck in the hinge, resulting in a cut wire-it was a red one. I spliced the wire back together, taped it up with electrical tape, and then secured the harness to the hinge assembly so wires couldn't come loose again. The problem resolved immediately with no further issues. Good luck.

Where is the Loose ground wire on the frame

Loose ground wires can cause all kinds of problems, and since ground wires are located in multiple locations specific to each model, each wire must be checked to assure connection.
If you have a starter problem, check the positive connection to the starter as well.
Remove seat and side covers and look closely at the frame to find black and/or black with another color attached to the frame. Remove, clean and reinstall each connection. Paint, rust and other corrosion can degrade connections. Also check your wires for corrosion, especially the battery wires.

Truck will not start

Elisha, this sounds like a loose or detached ground wire. The most likely culprit is the very heavy duty wire leading from the battery (-) pole. Check to be sure this is attached FIRMLY at both ends. One way to test whether this is the issue is to turn on the lights at the switch. Then attach (even by hand) a wire from the battery (-) pole to the engine block or the frame. See if the lights at least flicker. This is a crude test - and mildly risky - but it will confirm whether a loose or missing ground connection is at play.

1988 MX-6 GT once in a while won't start, wiggle batt. cables then start, but not always solution. What are the problems? My current nickname is Mr. Puzzled. Thanx.

Check to make sure both battery cables are tight on the battery. Make sure the positive(red) battery cable is tight where it attaches to the starter. The other end of the black cable will be attached to the engine block for ground, check for loose bolt. If everything is tight, look for corrosion damage on the cables. You may need to get under the car to check the wires on the starter to make sure they are all tight. If you don't find any loose wires or cables and the cables and battery are good, then the starter may be going out.

How do you take apart a ryobi lithium 18v one battery

This applies to Li-ion. NiCd is probably somewhat different.

Unscrew four security screws on the bottom of the battery. If you don't have the right bit you can grind down the center pins in the screw heads and use a T15 bit.

Unscrew the hex-head screw in the center of the protruding post at the top of the battery. It may be non-standard in size but a small metric hex key wrench works if you are gentle. The four corners of the battery cover should be loose now.

There are still two plastic clips holding the top cover to the main unit near the centers of the long dimensions. Gently push a knife blade into the crack between bottom and top to release the clip on each side.

As you lift the top cover off you should push down on the contacts near the top of the post so you don't pull on the attaching wires. Eventually the contacts should pop free and the top cover detaches.

Detach the wiring harness for the status LED from the circuit board. You can now remove the combined circuit board and battery pack from the lower case.

Six screws attach the circuit board to the battery assembly, along with several solder connections, but you probably don't need to go this far. You can now test and possibly replace individual cells.

How to take out the starter?

REMOVE KEY FROM IGNITION!!!!!! (SAFETY FIRST!!!!) UNHOOK..AND REMOVE THE BATTERY! DO NOT attempt this with the battery IN car..way too many things to go wrong.
Remove the battery and tray.

LOOK to the REAR of the engine,you'll see the TOP of the starter.. Loosen and remove the 14MM bolt/nut holding it on now down below

Drain radiator and Remove the lower radiator hose. This will let you squeeze the starter around the AC line.

THEN install the new starter,the one bolt you removed from the bottom,screw in the LAST 14MM bolt on the starter into the transmission LOOSELY!!!!!!!

GO up top,reinstall the TOP bolt,TIGHTEN THIS ONE FIRMLY,but NOT all the way... Go below,tighten the bottom bolt to final spec. RE-ATTACH ALL THE WIRES...make sure the trigger wire is snapped in fully. GO up top,FIRMLY tighten to spec the top bolt.. Re-install everything you removed up top then down below Reinstall the battery(MAKE SURE THE IGNITION IS OFF!!!!!) Hook up battery...

LOOK AT EVERYTHING...see if ANYTHING is loose.. CHECK EVERY BOLT YOU TOUCHED TO SEE THAT IT IS TIGHT, MAKE SURE ALL WIRES ARE IN PLACE... Crank it...Does it crank?? it should fire MUCH better then when you started....good luck..

Dont knw how to install the battery inside the ups

Just remove the top cover to see the battery clamped inside. remove the clamp and pull the battery out. See the to wires attached to it. A red and a Black. And the terminals marked + and -. Remove the wires from the battery terminals and attach them to same terminals of the new battery as they were in the old one. Put the battery back in the UPS and clamp it back. Put the top cover back on the UPS. Plug the UPS into mains.

2001 chrysler voyager lost dash lights and heater panel lights what would cause this they just all quit at once can't seem to find no blowed fuses and 4 way flashers still work

Your battery terminals are not tight enough. If the leads on top of your battery are just a little loose, then you loose your dash lights and gauges. They come right back when you tighten your battery terminals.
