Very low torque

One of my 12s has very low torque and sometimes needs a push to get it started. Any suggestions? Most people have told me i might as well buy a new one as it will be expensive to fix

It's not expensive to fix, but can be a pain, as you will need to have a service technician replace one of the IC's which control the drive. The part itself will run you about $20 or less, and the labor - figure 1 hour worth of work. So it will run about $80-100 depending on the rates of the company.

Oil Gauge Dropping to 5 psi

Hi again Kelea, I'm glad to help!

Kelea, if you do not hear a lot of engine rattling noises then I would say your "Oil Pump" is OK and you need to replace the "OIL SENDING UNIT" which you can buy at Autozone. CAUTION: If you do hear a lot of rattling noises coming from your engine then I'd suggest having someone check the oil pressure. If the oil pressure is low then it could be all kinds of things that can cause low pressures. From engine bearings, to restrictions, to the oil pump itself. I would start with the oil sending unit first and see what your oil pressure looks like. If your oil pressure is good after replacing the sending unit then I'd consider never taking my vehicle back to the shop that told you it was the pump. Hope this helps and have awesome day.

My automatic Audi A4 1.8L does not move at all. I have been told it's the gearbox. I cannot afford to buy a used gearbox, what options do i have?

I suggest you go to the junk yard &get .a used transmission there if your short on money,but you will have to get a new torque converter(about 100 bucks).Install it yourself & you will be able to cut the cost of your repair considerably.Keep posting

So i have this usx 4085 that someone threw in with some twelves on a deal, now is it even worth it to hook them up together or just buy another amp?

It depends on the quality of the 12s and voicecoil configuration.
Do you know the lowest impedence the amplifier will operate? is it bridgeable?
Howabout any low pass crossovers built in?
I would wait for a better amplifier than risk damaging the 12s if they are worth anything.

Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question.

Lcx-15ct (gps module not responding)

Before you give up on the LGC-12S you have now though, try plugging the LGC-12S right into the LCX-15CT without an extension cable. If the module not responding goes just need a new extension (GPSX-25G p/n 99-46).

The power cable has a set of yellow, blue, orange, and bare data wires. If these wires short together, you can get the module not responding error.

If all that doesn't help...the LGC-12S is bad.

The LGC-12W p/n 112-06 will work with the LCX-15CT. You probably get this at many marine electronics dealers or go to and buy it straight from Lowrance. They cost $229 so you might want to shop around putting that money into a whole new system altogether.
Make sure you have the latest software updates if you get the newer LGC-12W. These can be downloaded at

Let me know if you need more help.

1999 dodge ram truck automatic trans may be slipping, not sure??

I think you mean they told you that you need to replace the torque converter , which transfers the torque from the engine to the trans
it could be the torque converter but also could be the bands wearing down in the trans
