My train works intermittently. When it stops, I can tap it and it continues. The car light still works. I have 2 cars and it happens to both. Can there be a short in the track?

The problem is more than likely a poor electrical connection, it is not a "short" or it would not work at all no matter what you do. I suggest you clean the tracks and contacts with a Scotch Brite pad and wipe clean with Alcohol.

Mercedes 1999 A160 while driving beeps and all interior lights go on? Any ideas please?


it may be some warning device as to driver alert capability ( wakes you up if tired)
contact a MB service dealer and discuss the problem
without engine lights and codes it is not associated with the engine and transmission so it has to be another control system

Why is my pfaff stop sewing and then starts again after tap on right side?


This generally indicates an electrical or electronic short, either of which should only be approached by a trained technician. However, it is often hard for technicians to find intermittent errors, so, you may have to wait until it happens so often that it won't be missed. Sorry, wish I had better news.

Sounds like a short some place. Electrical, intermittent problems are hard to detect. Process of elimination.

no computer listed, no OS stated, now THAT is a challenge. no?
this is common
it causes the system to have 2 sounds systems
that head phone is not that, its Head phones and a USB sound chip. (2 sounds systems are there now)

so you have 2 choices. (confuses me wife too)
1:; in device manager turn off the PC sound car, "disable it"
2: or learn how to run both using the sound, applit in the task stray.

right click speaker icon in tray
the pick (windows10) play back device
and last pick (which one you want now, new heads or stock speaker)

without being able to look at the car its next to impossible to diagnose what's going on. taking your car to the dealer will be the best idea considering they have to the tools and equipment to "talk" to the vehicle and see if its storing error codes when these incidents happen. keep in mind this will cost you money since your vehicle is out of warranty.

try shifting into neutral when this happens and see if everything works. if so it is probably the trans range sensor. it thinks it is in the start mode and cuts the things off
