My key will not go into the ignition on my 2010 Kia Soul, tried moving the steering wheel and the gear shifter and still nothing. What else can I do besides replacing the ignition switch?


The steering wheel is locked when the ignition is turned off. Sometimes when getting out of the car, some people will be holding on to the steering wheel. Occasionally, the steering wheel will be pulled as they get out of the car. This will cause the locking mechanism to be pulled past it's normal locking position, making it impossible to insert your key. You may be able to correct this by turning the steering wheel to the left then to the right, back and forth with a strong grip on the wheel, while trying to insert your key.at the same time. If you cannot get the steering wheel back to it's normal alignment, where your key can be inserted, call your local KIA dealer and ask for help. They should come to you and fix it for you. They made have to remove the steering wheel to release the locking mechanism and realign the steering wheel to line up properly with the lock.

How to open oven door after self cleaning? oven


I was advised to disconnect power for at least 60 seconds to clear the control board. I did this several times with no luck getting the door unlocked. However, a few hours later, the door did finally unlock. Not sure what ultimately caused the door to unlock, but happy that I did not have to replace the control board
or
Try this to get the oven door open. Turn off the power, take a coat hanger and bent at 90 degree angle about 2 inches long. Turn the wire side ways along the top of the door, 2 inches to the right of center, turn your wire so the bent piece is down. Now pull out on the door and move the wire to the left. This should unlock your door so you can get to dinner. What may have happened is that the oven sensor has locked the door for safety. That does happen

How do i fold this puschair up & how does it fold down? Can this done by one person? Thnk you for any help.


The Tracker is designed to be folded and unfolded easily, by one person.

To unfold: If your Tracker has an adjustable handle, ensure that it is in one of the middle positions. On the central twist grip, push in the red button and turn the grip in the direction of the "FOLD" arrow. The pushchair should now begin to open. Placing your hand on the side moulding, pull on the handle until the primary locks on both the left and right hand sides engage with a click. The secondary lock should automatically engage.

To fold: First of all, make sure that the front wheels have been locked into fixed, non-steering mode. Also, ensure that the adjustable handle is in one of the middle positions. Press the red button on the twist grip and simultaneously turn it in the direction of the "FOLD" arrow. At this point, the chair should start to close. Next, look for the secondary locking device. This plastic tab should be situated just below the handle grip on the left-hand side. Pull it upwards, whilst tilting the chassis forwards and continuing the folding action until it is fully closed. Align the front wheel with your foot, if necessary, and fold down the adjustable handle to store the chassis.

The left side passenger door of my 2000 ford focus 1.4 will not lock. All the other doors lock. How do I fix this? is this jsut a fuse problem or something bigger?


Well, first check all your locking wiring are they properly connected and in good condition?
Second check your locking/unlocking door mechanism is it still in good order, the way to test is is very simply.
Get a good gauge electrical wire, about 50 cm with positive and negative coding, connect one ground cable to battery negative post and the other to the positive post. Ensure they never touch each other. Connect each wire to the two wires on the lock mechanism body, if one way did not work try reversing the connection.
If the lock still in good condition it will click pusing the locking/unlocking arm on the mechanism.
Good luck to try this out.
If this is good then rate me. Thanks

Passenger door will not open


I can think of two possibilities:

1) The electronic lock is malfunctioning and forcing the door to lock. From the inside of the car, try forcing the lock to the 'unlocked' position. If you can do this with your had, but it 'snaps' back to 'locked' then it's an electrical problem. Possibly the lock solenoid itself, or the BCM.

2) If you cannot force the lock to the 'unlocked' position, then it's some sort of mechanical problem - maybe the lock is just jammed. Try spraying oil into the locking mechanism from the outside and working the lock until it's free. Otherwise, remove the interior door panel and diagnose the mechanical lock.

Lift gate wont open with remote


I spend the next 10 minutes alternating between randomly hitting the FOB’s lock and unlock buttons, until I give up in a garage-filling string of expletives as I realize my kayak and I are SOL. Luckily, I did have a friend and an incredibly helpful REI employee there, whom all pitched in and managed to jam the kayak into the Suburban through the side door. I love my Suburban for reasons like this, though I’m slowly starting to hate GMC. More on this to come.
chevy-suburban-2005.jpg Here’s the Suburban with kayak inside and the lift gate panel on the floor. If you have a Suburban / Tahoe / Yukon in the same situation where your lift gate won’t open, the only way to get it open is to pry the lift gate panel just enough to access the locking mechanism. Take a long flat head screwdriver, slip it into the top section of the panel and start pulling away. The panel is made of a flexible plastic that will bend a fair amount, so don’t be afraid to put a bit of elbow into it. Once you see the locking mechanism, you’ll want to grip the back side that moves and twist counter-clockwise until the door pops open. Once you’ve done this, call GM customer service and tell them that their engineers should be fired for not having a manual release. If there is an accident / fire up front, wouldn’t you like it if your kids could escape out the back? Yeah, me too.
suburban-tailgate-panel.jpg If you’re lucky enough that you can open your door (or maybe it doesn’t lock to begin with), then it’s a little easier to pull off the panel. First, take a socket wrench (9mm, I think) and remove the bolt under the leather handle on the inside of the door (the one you pull down on when your lift gate is up). After that, insert a flat head into the space between the panel and the door and pry open. There will be around 4 or 5 contact points to disconnect.
remove-tailgate-panel.jpg The two last things that stand in your way are plastic hinges that hold the panel to the door frame. With the lift gate open, push the panel toward the car, then spin it an entire half-circle around the hinge in the picture. After that, the panel should pull right out. Now the locking mechanism should be nicely exposed.
suburban-tailgate-unlock.jpg Here we see the lift gate handle at the bottom, which is connected by a tension wire to the locking mechanism. Pulling on the handle causes the wire at the top to retract toward the right, turning the locking mechanism counter-clockwise.
tailgate-lock-explained.jpg However, pulling the handle does nothing when the mechanism is in the locked position, because it doesn’t engage the other tension wire / tailgate release - it just simply moves by itself. When the mechanism is unlocked, pulling on the handle will engage the release mechanism and pop open the door… when the locking mechanism is working, that is.
engaged-door-lock.jpg Here is a properly unlocked door: notice that the black plastic piece (on top of the copper) is slid all the way to the right. You can see that if you rotate the lower copper piece, that it will force the black plastic piece to turn, thus engaging the door release.
tailgate-wont-unlock.jpg Here is why your Suburban tailgate won’t unlock. I’ve just pressed the unlock button on my key FOB and you can see that the black plastic piece has NOT slid over to the right. This means that the door is still LOCKED as far as the mechanism is concerned. No amount of yanking on the handle will open the lift gate at this point.
locking-mechanism-stuck.jpg Zooming in for a close-up, you can really see where the problem is. Gear heads will realize this is a major problem for all sorts of reasons. First, if your door lock actuator is banging against this metal part every time you unlock your door, it will wear out the part extremely fast and you’ve got yourself a busted door. Second, even if you replace your actuator, you’ll just bust it again if it keeps ramming this part. Most importantly, the question is how this is happening to begin with? My Suburban was working fine until I put in a factory replacement handle.
My opinion is that the factory GM replacement was defective and not built to spec, because the tensioner was now pulling a few millimeters more than it should have, which resulted in my lift gate not closing or unlocking. While millimeters might not mean anything to some cheap factory in China or Mexico, it means a whole lot of difference to the Joe Schmoe who wants to have a car that works. It may also be due to a small and very important spring that resets the lock back into place.
suburban-door-lock-actuator.jpg I’ve read a whole ton of reports about Suburban lift gates, along with Tahoes, Yukons and other GM cars failing and drivers stuck with unlockable doors. I believe this type of careless “few millimeters off isn’t important” BS is likely to blame. That’s why some people may have locks that work only half the time, or some work after their actuators are replaced, but fail soon afterward. My two-cent opinion - back to fixing cars.
relieve-handle-tension.jpg So what we need to do, is make some space for that locking (technically, “unlock”) mechanism to engage fully. On my Suburban, this meant giving the metal tensioner just a little more slack - 2mm would be all I need.
removing-handle-wire.jpg First, I pushed the handle wire mechanism over to the right and then pulled out the metal ball and wire. After that, I pinched the blue wire cap and pushed it out of the metal holder.
unlocked-tailgate.jpg You can now see that there is a lot of visible space between the locking mechanism and the metal. Pressing lock and unlock on my key FOB easily moved the unit back and forth successfully, so I knew it wasn’t a problem with the actuator. Now comes the disclaimer part.
bend-lock-mechanism.jpg DISCLAIMER: Attempt this section at your own risk, you are responsible for your own actions!!! Not seeing a lot of options, I decided I would take a somewhat drastic approach and bend the wire holder closer to the locking mechanism with a pair of pliers. I only needed about 2mm, so I felt this was acceptable without busting the car too much. Needless to say, this is not a graceful fix nor one I really wanted to do, but there appeared to be little other options other than cutting your own tensioner line (adjusting the line would be the most logical method, but I pinching and pulling got me no results) or finding some concrete way of bracing the line closer to the locking mechanism. If you come up with an elegant solution, please let me know.
fixed-tailgate-lock.jpg Phew, finally - the fixed tailgate lock! You can see there is just enough room for the mechanism to engage and that the handle tension wire is snugly seated into its new home. I tested the lock about 100 times to be sure that everything was working as it should and I advise you do the same once you get to this point.
Now, simply put the panel back on the same way you took it off (don’t forget to screw the bolt back into the handle) and you’re done. Have a beer and go pat yourself on the back.
If this blog post has helped at all, I’d appreciate if you left a comment to share you experiences so others in the same situation can hear what you did. Thanks.

Change combination on a presto lock on a briefcase


Enter the correct code and open the case. Now push the button you use to open the case to the open position and hold it there, now push in the clamp and push the opener more and it will lock in place. Enter the new code and push the clamp part again to set it. Do to other side now.

Put the key in the ignition. To lock the steering push the key down and turn the key. To unlock the seat, DON'T push the key down. Instead, just turn the key counter clockwise.

The head to my kitchen aid mixer bounces up when kneading dough


This sounds like an issue of beater to bowl adjustment, which can come out of alignment naturally over time and with use of the machine.

If the flat beater is striking the bottom of your bowl, this may cause the locking mechanism to loosen and may cause the mixing head to "bounce" during use.

Your Use and Care Guide will cover the "beater to bowl adjustment," which you can do at home in a few minutes with a flathead screwdriver.
