    The fan has been installed for about 2 1/2 years and worked fine up until now. Its just started pulsing the light. We dont use it very much and probably not for the last year at all.

    The blades turn fine by hand wit no resistance and I've changed the battery in the remote to make sure it wasnt this.

There could be 3 known causes.
1. The wires are not securely attached
2. Motor is fried and is sucking power it can transfer
3. A short in the switch.
You can try replacing the switch or tap directly around the motor itself and see if the brushes inside motor free up. You can also turn fan to on and try spinning by hand to see if she frees up

Has power to the injector but it doesnt have a pulse

Ah, here we are again, Adam! Sounds like the injector ground circuit is not working properly. Do as I posted previously, put a testlight on the positive post of battery, and probe the injector ground terminal. Now crank the car over. If light is flashing, circuit is good. If no light, or light is not blinking, computer malfunction or malfunction in the ground circuit.

Tv sensor not working ????

Press and hold down the up volume button on the original remote, look at the light (led) on the remote, the light should be lit and slightly pulsing. If no pulse your remote is bad, if you are seeing the pulse try cleaning the ir window on front of tv. Let me know if this helps and please rate this solution. lone99star

Lost everything on my laptop as soon as i open it

I dont think you lost everything. Do you see any green power lights and do you hear the normal hard drive and fan sounds when booting up ? If you do and still wont boot up to Windows then reboot and keep tapping on F8 to safe mode and select "last known good configuration". You can also perform system restore.

If you dont hear anything at all, no power and you dont see any green power lights then you may have to plug into another known good power outlet. check that your power connections (including the power adaptor) are secured and if on a strip power off and on. If that doesnt work, try another power adaptor. If those doesnt work
remove the laptop battery and just plug in the adapter.

If youre concern about your personal files you can always take out the hard drive, piggyback it to another hard drive on a known good PC and retrieve the files.
