Confirmation: Lee2fixit's solution also worked on a Sanyo 19" TV Model DS19580with 'buzzing relay'. Chassis carriessimilar relay (Type DG1U 12VDC II TV-5 8A 250V~ also by DEC) at location RL601and a 25VDC 470uF electrolytic cap at C622. After confirming the relay was sound and finding no obviously faultedcomponents tied to it, replaced the cap. Bingo, normal operation and a quiet relay. Will post a follow-up ONLY if the fix failsbefore the rest of the TV .. it's almost10 years old after all. Thank youLee2fixit and

relays only have a specified life of x amount of switches x depending on the style and manufacturer, so there is a good chance it will fail eventually, if you know someone technically minded you could get them to change the relay which would be cheaper than the board its fitted too, as its at the end of the cycle i would guess it controls the heater as it cools down near the end to stop you buring yourself on the drum.

You should have to get the truck scanned for codes, so there will be an exact direction to diagnose.

It could be you gonna have a bad valve cover gasket or the electrical connection that goes from valve cover gasket to injector.

It's also possible that the injector could be bad but you would have to test the electrical system to injector to determine that. I recommend you have truck scanned and we'll see what code it is and try to figure out what's going on.

How do a fix a refrigerator which makes a clicking noise when light in freezer is off? If I open the freezer door it stops. If the door is open and I depress the light switch, it starts the noise aga

That's a weird one. It sounds like the switch operates a relay that cuts off power, and the relay is "chattering." If so, the only way to stop it is to replace the relay. Call a technician if you're not comfortable getting into the inner workings of your freezer yourself.

Darn, just sold my '95 neon. I never had to bother with the electronics, it always worked. That da da noise sounds like must come from some relay. Come to think of it, Chrysler makes had a kind of "main relay" called the Auto Shutdown Relay or ASD relay. It's purpose was as a main relay for sending power to necessary things to keep the engine running-like power to the ignition coil, and power to the fuel injectors, and to the fuel pump. This relay is triggered or controlled by the computer.
If you have a relay chattering and it is not a bad relay, then could also be a poor positive battery connection, or even a poor ground too. If that chattering sound is from the starter solenoid (on the starter motor), then you either have a weak battery or a poor connection ... or a bad solenoid.

Washer won't spin

If you can hear the motor running and there is a loud chattering noise, you probably need a drive coupler. If it just seems to stop dead, it is probably a lid switch.

Remove lower rear cover of washer, remove belt, undo 2 screws securing motor, remove motor wiring plug,, lever back motor and remove motor.

Remove carbon brushes at end of motor, and check for wear, if less than 8-10mm long, then replace them.
Clean armature with emery cloth or sandpaper before fitting new brushes, if it still does not work then the motor is probably faulty.
Plz rate my solution.
