I also had this issue - followed the On, Input, Undo, Left, Enter, Right, On button sequence several times. Then I decided to push them in that sequence very quickly and it worked. The lamp LED on the front changed to green and the projector started up. So the button sequence they provide in the manual works, you just have to push them in rapid succession. Hope that helps.

SOURCE: Sears Craftsman Sprocket replacement procedure

The problem lies in the RPM sensor, most likely due to the interrupter cup assembly. The interrupter cup assembly is the black cap that runs through the RPM sensor. You may have forgotten to re-attach this piece or it is probably moving too far out when the garage sets in motion. To fix this, remove the cup assembly, unscrew the two screws on the top metal piece with a 1/8 allen wrench, push the metal piece as far in as possible and put the screws back on. This will give more room for the cup assembly to spin and be read by the RPM sensor. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Parking lamp bulb replacement.

hey,

you have to use a pretty long screw drive to gently push down on the release tab, slowly wiggle the lens assembly until it move forward a little... depending on how long its been since the last time it was changed, you might have to be a little more aggressive in your wiggling to get it to slid forward.

I just change my front turn signals from yellow to Euro white, looks freaking sweet as hell.

Well, I hope I helped... it would be a shame for you to waste money at the dealership for something like that.

Drive to Seattle and replace it for you... Lol

Good luck

SOURCE: SOLUTION: HOW TO REPLACE REAR BULBS ON 2002 & 2004 BUICK LESABRE

Rear tail lamps for the 2002 La Sabre has eight nuts that hold the cover in place ( one piece-all acroos the back of the car). Do not remove the nuts for the lock, the cover sits in place and is not secured to the lock. Use a 10 mm deep well socket. remove the nuts and lift the cover to replace the burned out bulb(s). The bulbs are #194 or #198 (very small bulbs), not the 3057. It is easy to locate the burned out bulbs by putting the car in reverse and shutting off the engine and then put the ignition key in the accessory mode. The lights will light unless they are burned out. Simply pull them out and replace with the new ones and put the cover back in place and secure the nuts.

How do I open the Nitelighter NL55 pool light to replace the bulb?


There is a screw that holds the surround in place and holds the lamp assembly. U have to then open up the lamp assembly to install the new bulb and reseal all so no water gets in. Then put back and while under water get the surround in along with the screw. A real PIA and very hard to do when buoyancy keeps pushing you up when you want to stay down there to do the job while holding your breath and screw driver, surround and screw.

How to replace brake light bulb audi a4 1.8t 2002


Start by opening the trunk lid. On the sides of the trunk, just beside where the trunk lid sits when closed there is a circle cap on either side. Remove the cap it is the same material as the trunk side trim (fuzzy carpet) then there will be a screw set into the hole that you just uncovered. You can use either a philips screw driver or an 8mm socket and remove the screw/bolt. you may need to reach in with a set of needle nose pliers to remove the screw after it is loosened all the way. Once the screw is removed grab the tail lamp assembly from the inside and twist the tail lamp out of the holding pins located on the side edge of the tail lamp. The whole light will come off of the body in your hands. Once the tail lamp assembly is out there is an access panel on the back side where all the bulbs are installed. Depress the two holding tabs on the sides and carefully remove the bulb holder. Then replace any blown bulbs and reinstall.

How can I take off the tail light assembly to replace the bulb for the left tu


Open the trunk. In the left corner where the lamp assembly is, you should see two screw covers that cover the screws holding in the lamp assembly.

12_5_2012_6_45_21_pm.jpg

Remove these covers to find the screws, and unscrew them to pull the taillamp assembly out of the vehicle body. Disconnect the lamp wiring harness, turn the bulb socket counterclockwise to pull out the socket, revealing the light bulb. Then pull the bulb right out of the socket and replace it with a new bulb.

Replace the socket, turning it clockwise. Replace the taillight assembly. Check that the taillamp assembly tab, located at the bottom of the taillamp assembly, is aligned to the facia bracket before securing the screws.
12_5_2012_6_46_06_pm.jpg


Screw the taillamp assembly back into the vehicle body and replace the screw covers. Check to make sure the new bulb works properly.

Your owners manual specifies that the rear left turn lamp is a lamp with bulb number 3057K. You should be able to find them at any automotive store or from your dealer. Hope this helps.

    I have a craftsman driver light #41993. Its


    I know this is an old post but noticed there are 385 people that have viewed the post that like me were searching for a fix to their Craftsman 41993 lighted driver. The fix I found resulted in a better light than the original but being a Craftsman purist I also found a way to fix the original as well even though I put it away and use the new fix. I just wanted the original to work again. I'll start with repairing the original. The usual problem with the original is caused by corrosion from leaky batteries that ends up corroding through the metal strip connecting the + and - ends. I tore apart a new freebie led flashlight from Harbor Freight and used the guts to replace the metal strip and spring that was corroded beyond repair on my light. All it took was a little bending and snipping to make it identical to what my Craftsman had. You will notice the guts of the HF light have a nearly identical metal strip with spring attached. I cleaned the 41993 parts thoroughly & reassembled it using the remaining parts and the new metal strip and spring that I fabricated from the Harbor Freight light. It worked like a charm and my light works like it did when it was new. Now for the best part because my upgrade takes this light to a whole new level. Remove the old light and store it in a safe place. Then get another 3 1/2" Mini Flashlight from Harbor Freight item #69052 for free if you have a coupon since this item is often the freebie given away with any other purchase. I have a half dozen lying around myself so I know this to be fact. Remove the small lanyard and circular clip from the light and toss it since you will no longer need it. Pick up one super thin O-ring from a hardware store that will fit over the end of the flashlight and place it over the end of the light with the push button until it rests in the first groove. I can't give you a size since I sifted through several until I found one that fit snug with a little stretching to get it over the end of the light. Then slide the light into the 41993 and work the o-ring into handle with a small jewelers screwdriver as you gently press the light in place. This doesn't take too much pressure unless you chose a thicker o-ring. You don't absolutely have to use an o-ring but I like the professional appearance of the o-ring and the fact that it serves as a moisture barrier. The new replacement light fits so well that it looks like it was made for the 41993. The plus is that it has 9 LED's and illuminates the 41993 like the sun. Trust me that you will never again use the original once you install the new upgrade. Hope this helps another Craftsman tool junkie like me.
