I have a 2007 hyundai car the service engine light come on put new spark plugs and 02 oxygen sensor on still cmg on what could be wrong?

you need to pull the code from the computer then go from there. changing plugs and an O2 sensor will not turn off the light unless the code in the computer is possibly referring to them. you may have spent money you didn`t have to and now you have to pay more to fix the actual problem. don`t take short cuts.

Last night I cut my computer off and it froze on the shutting down screen so I held down the power button and it cut off. Now when I cut it on the light on the monitor is orange. It's Gateway 817GM. Help?

1. Verify the monitor's power cord is plugged firmly into the wall outlet and the back of the monitor.
2. Verify the monitor cable is firmly connected to the computer and the monitor.
3. Verify that you have turned the monitor power switch on.
4. If the power light on the monitor is not on, test the wall outlet (plug in a light or something you know works).
5. If the power light on the monitor is not on, try a different power cord.
6. If the power light is on and yellow or flashing, but nothing displays, or the display is incorrect, borrow a monitor from a friend. If that works, your monitor probably needs replaced.
7. Also, you could try your display on a friend's computer. If it doesn't work, your monitor probably needs replaced. If it works properly on your friends computer, the problem may be with your computers video output port, motherboard video chip (or video card, if you have one), or drivers.

Replace right rear quarterpanel

replacing a quarter panel is no easy task. it is spot welded all around the perimeter. To do it properly you will need to remove the rear window, the quarter glass, the trunk lid, rear panel, tail light, bumper cover, rear wheel, and inner wheel panel liner. every spot weld found will need to be cut, but only thru the outer panel. You do not want to cut all of the way thru both panels as you need to have something to attach the new panel to. After all welds are cut, there are welds under where the back window and quarter window go, and there are also welds in the sail panel that is between the quarter and rear windows where the quarter meets the roof panel. After all welds are cut and cleaned up you will want to cover all bare metal with a zinc based primer. You will want to drill holes all around the perimeter of the new panel and attach it to the vehicle with clamps or self tapping screws temporarily until you weld the new panel in place. You will want to fill in the holes you drilled in the new panel welding to the panel underneath. once all is attached you can remove the clamps or tap screws, if you used screws weld these holes as well, then grind everything smooth. finish up with a bit of body work especially at the sail panel where it meets the top, prime, sand, and now you might be ready for a trip to the paint shop.

Dome light relay defective and won't pull out. How can I remove it? 1998 Windstar

No catch. it is probably melted into the plastic panel it plugs into. from overheating, the leads that plug into it are melted. you need to remove the panel and look underneath to see how extensive the damage is. The only solution is to cut around the plastic carefully to remove. may have to rewire a new relay in using the old wires where there is no damage.

I just installed a new stereo in my 2001 mitsubishi galant. Now my dash lights don't work along with the lights by my right arm that illuminate the parking, neutral, and driving states. A rear tail light...

Not to bash on you or anything, but alot of people try to save money and not buy the pigtail for the stereo that will plug into the cars harness and the radio. they start cutting wires and start haveing other problems. The stores should push more to purchase these pigtails. now days everything in your car is a computer. even your instrument panel is a computer. cut the wrong wire and let it short and you have problems. you may have to replace the instrument panel to fix your problem. you can have it checked at a shop

Power cord cuts in and out

There are two places the trouble can be happening, at the adapter plug or at the power jack in the laptop. To determine which one is causing the power loss, hold the plug in the computer steady with your fingers while you wiggle the adapter cable. (If you have access to a voltmeter you can measure the voltage at the plug while you wiggle the cable to see if remains steady.)

If the charge light flickers it's the adapter cord that's bad. Because the wire flexes so much at the plug, it can break inside the insulation and cause the power loss. You either need to replace the adapter or repair it by cutting off the bad end and installing a new plug.

If the charge light remains on with the plug held steady but flickers when you wiggle the plug itself, the trouble is on the main board in the computer. The solder connections at the power jack have broken from the plug flexing and need to be repaired. This involves opening up the computer and getting at the solder side of the main board. It's tedious but relatively simple. If you are not experienced with soldering on small electronics, leave this to a professional shop.

12v accessory plug in

the first step is to check the fuse it should be labeled as CIG or AUX
if fuse is not open (blown) check for corrosion and power at ether end of the terminal (where the fuse goes in) using a 12V test light. If it does not light then the problem is between the fuse panel and battery, but if it lights check the power side of plug in (the sides are the ground and the circle in the bottom is the positive) with the test light. If there is no light that means a disconnected or cut wire on the positive side, but if it does light then there is a cut or disconnected wire on the negative side ether one may need to be further investigated and repaired.
also remove panel and check to see if the wires have been unplugged from the end of the plug in

If both ends of the cable are plug in type, any monitor cable with a 15 pin D connectors will work.

Search internet for VGA cable.
