I experienced the same problem. I found a small capacitor in the corner of the board with a bad solder connection. You do have to remove the 6 screws holding the board to the plastic slide to get to the back side of the board.

Try looking in the troubleshooting section of the operating manual (usually near the back) to see if that tells you about flashing 4 times

Sounds like a loose connection or a part that heats up, sometimes you can get a can of freeze (radio shack) and spay on the part if the part is over heating to see if you can get it to stay up longer.

Why is my IIIWoods 50013 outdoor 24 hour timer switching to OFF regardless of setting? How do I fix it?

First start with the reset button, clears out all past commands.
First the clock has to be set to the proper day and time, It might be in the 24 system versus AM and PM you can find this out by stepping through all the hours when the time comes on. To set clock press Set and see what is flashing, if it is the day, scroll to the right day and hit set, now time should flash scroll to right hour, press set, right minutes, press set, right seconds, press set; Now the clock should be set.
Next you do the programs you want again go through same process, hit program 1 should flash press set, now the days should flash, scroll through till you have the right combo of days, one day, all days of week, Sat, Sun, then last the whole week will flash, if that is the one you want then press set, now press set and the times should flash for hour.
pick the time you want to come on, hit set for hour, minute, second, then hit set again now hit the program button again and it should say off, go through the same steps and set hour, minute second then hit set for last time. In a few minutes it should change to reading the time on the screen. Then you have to wait and see if it works. To do a mini version, see if it will work get a lamp plug in set all the above but use a very short on off time like 4 or 5 mins, then you will know if it is going to work right. then set for the correct time. good luck hope it helps. If it all messes up just hit reset and start all over, REMEMBER it can't so anything until the time of day is set right that's the starting point.

When pushing button for 4wheel drive, the amber flashes continully. does not go into 4wheel drive

It will eventually. most likely the electrical connections under truck got wet and stops the operation your explaining. My 03 yukon xl does this all the time. when i shut it off next day i start and it works. sometimes the 4 lo light comes on yet it is still in 2 hi. other days they all flash. somedays the red nuetral light is on yet i'm driving. Damn electronics. My ford explorer is the same way. I never get the underbody wash either as this leads to two days of flashing.

Chance time in cherokee 2005 with navigasion is no time botton

If you have a VIC (Vehicle Information Control), hold the set button down until the hours start flashing. Once the hours are flashing, hit the set button to change the hours until you've got the hours correct. Then hit the Select button and the minutes will start to flash. Hit the Set button until your minutes are correct and then hit the Select button again whereby the AM/PM button will flash, hit the Set button until your time's correct, then hit select to move to the day, date and year and when you're finally done, (after all the hitting of the SET & Select buttons, just hit the Select button and nothing will flash and your time is set. Should you have a radio that displays the time, push down and hold the TIME button until the hours begin to flash (with the radio turned off), then turn the volume wheel until the correct hour is displayed. To adjust the minutes, turn the Tuning knob until the minutes are correct. Once you're done, don't touch any of the buttons and the clock will display the correct time on it's own...when you've released all the buttons and dials.

I have a code 88 -What is the problem has ben 48 hours

This is an added extra and basically a new problem. Mine is brand new. I hold the left button down, and get the first beep, then hold the right button down, and it beeps multiple times, and stayes at 88. It took about 15-20 minutes of trying this before we got the 00. I think the lock mechanism is broken, as I can't get it locked either at the end, so I just let the system lock itself after 1 minute. We unplugged it and tried again, and still after multple time eventually got it to go to 00. I take it that this isn't normal.

Apex GB51HD09 will not turn on

On the power board you will find 4- 35Volt X 1000mfd radial lead capacitors on the right rear corner of the board all in a row from right to left, the 2 outside capacitors have gone high ESR. This is a common problem with this model.
