Dead battery on a Hyosun Aquira difficult to access, how do you take battery out to charge or is there an easy way

Get something like this:

The separate wire on the right with the eyelets attach permenetly to the battery terminals. It's called a "pig-tail".
Then when you need to charge the battery, the unit plugs into the pig-tail (plug sticking out from behind "box", on it's right).
Then plug unit into wall outlet.

We recently installed a new dryer and everything worked but it did not heat. We...

This advice is for all ELECTRIC Dryers that have a "No Heat" problem.

Symptom: Dryer turns on, drum spins, but you have no heat.

Any of the following components are more than likely suspect as being bad:

Heating Element
Thermal Cut-Out
Hi-Limit Thermostat

All these components COMBINED, should cost less than $100. If you fix it yourself, you will avoid the additional cost for labor.

If the dryer isn't blowing ANY air at all, but the drum still turns, you may have a bad blower fan assembly inside the dryer. Or, the blower fan assembly may be clogged.

If your dryer performance has been failing (i.e., clothes taking longer to dry), it may be for a reason. You need to ask yourself when the last time you cleaned the dryer ventilation. If you can't remember, or if it has never been done, this can contribute to the dryer failing. All dryers need proper air flow in order to dry properly. If the ducting becomes clogged, the heating circuits will actually overheat and eventually fail. This usually results in the Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) blowing or the Heating Element failing or BOTH. When these components fail, they must be replaced. Remove the dryer hose from the back of the dryer and inspect it thoroughly from where it leaves the dryer to where it exits your home. It should be clear with no kinks or clogs. If your vent line runs under a crawl space make sure it is suspended above the ground and has no sags where lint could collect. RULE OF THUMB: The SHORTER and STRAIGHTER the vent duct, the BETTER. After you inspect the vent ducting, turn the dryer on and make sure you have forceful air flow coming form the dryer. This will prove that your blower fan is working properly or not. Since you stated that your dryer is not currently heating, the air will be cold, but you should still have some force behind it. If the air flow is weak, you need to clean the duct work INSIDE the dryer. It is important to keep a dryer checked routinely. I recommend once per season (that's 4 times per year). Dryers are the cause of many house fires. These fires are due to lint accumulations inside the unit catching on fire. A little preventive maintenance can prevent significant problems in the future.

Getting to the heating circuit to determine if the components are good or bad is the next step. If your dryer has the lint screen on the top of the unit, you will need to remove the back panel of the dryer to expose the heating circuits. If the dryer has the lint screen in the door, you will need to remove the lower kick panel under the door by using a putty knife to release the retaining clips. They will be located along the seam in the front about 2 inches in from each side. If this is a Kenmore Elite or Whirlpool Duet, the lower lick panel comes off by removing the screws under the bottom edge of the panel. (HINT: placing a block of wood under the front feet of the dryer can make access much easier). If your dryer has no lower kick panel, you have to remove the entire front panel on these models. This is accomplished by lifting the dryer top and removing the screws that hold the front panel in place.

NOTE: The heating circuit should be troubleshot with the dryer UNPLUGGED. Dangerous voltages are still present with the dryer turned off. Resistance readings are as follows:

Heating Element (located inside heater box) – remove the two leads from the ceramic terminals on the heating element and take a reading across the terminal points. It should read 9 - 13 ohms.

Thermal Cut-Out (TCO) (mounted to the heater box.) - unplug wires and take reading across connector tabs. Reading should be 0 ohms.

Hi-Limit Thermostat (mounted to the heater box, closest to the heating element leads) - unplug wires and take reading across connector tabs. Reading should be 0 ohms.

If any of the above readings are abnormal, replace the component. NOTE: If the TCO or Hi-Limit Thermostat is defective it is highly recommended by most manufacturers to replace BOTH components at the same time. They are often sold as a set. Without doing so, these components can cause potentially fail again.

Hey,I have an 03 chevy s10,I recently tried putting a pig tail on it (straight wired) and had no luck,gave up and crimped all the wire back together,and today a guy at work noticed I had no taillights,but...

I would check your tail light fuse first then test the brown wire in the tail light harness where you origionally cut into it. With the lights on there should be around 12v on it. if not you may have pulled the wire too hard and broke it upstream. Test to see if there is 12v at the fuse ad if there is, your trouble should be in the wire between the fuse and the spot where you cut into it.

Break light out, tail is ok. New bulb put in. What can we check.

Hi, as the tail light gets its supply from the ignition switch, it sounds like you have an issue with either a bad earth on the rear light or a break in the wireing from under the seat to the light, lift the seat, pull apart the loom that feeds the rear light, you will have a green, (earth) and a brown = rear tail light, and green/ red brake light, as the tail light is working you can use the rear lite supply to check the circuit from the connection to the light. ,under the seat disconnect the brown, and the green/red and plug them together in reverse, now if the system is ok the rear light opperation, will light up the brighter fillement of the bulb and the rear light will look brighter than previouse, if it does noy light, then the problem lies in the wire from that point to the light, if it does light return the wireing back to normal, find the rear brake switch, separate the two wires on the loom end plug both of the wires togeter without the switch, if the light works then the switch must be replaced, good luck, paul
