    My son moved into and older home and one of the rooms with 2, 3 way switch wasn't working. Since my request I looked at the wiring in a different room with 2, 3 way switchs and the wiring appears to be the same and in that room both switchs work. So I decided that being the home is 25 years old the first course of action should be to replace the switchs. So I will see if that fixes the problem.

    Provide some more details and I may be able to help you. How many switches, 2 or 3? Exactly how are each of them wired? How many terminals (other than the ground) are available on each switch?
    .
    I assume if the problem started with an existing setup that used to work, you would have already gone down the road of replacing the switches, or maybe this is a new installation for decorative reasons--- either way this must be a new installation and it's probably not wired correctly - but I'm guessing here. The 75 volt reading is most likely a red herring. Volt meters are very sensitive to voltage potential, regardless of the available current. If you can hook those leads with 75 volts to an incandescent light bulb, and it lights up (a bit dimly) - then you have a problem, but it probably won't light up at all.
    .
    Good luck, I'll respond to more info if I can.

In a situation like this , If the switches are new, then the wiring has gotten messed up. If they are old installation, then it sounds like a loose or broken wire in one of the switch boxes. check the sketches for correct wiring, making sure that the travellers between the switches are on the brass colored screws .. and check all wire nut connections and scrwew connections to be sure that all wwires are secure in their connections.

2006 buick allure , automatic low beams do not come on when key starts car


Headlamps
You can use the headlamps two different ways.
?€¢
Place the headlamp switch in the HEAD position for normal operations


?€¢
Place the headlamp switch in the OFF position for automatic lamp control (ALC) operation. During ALC the low beam headlamps are ON for daytime running lamp (DRL) operation in daylight conditions at reduced intensity or low beam headlamps ON at full intensity with exterior park lamps ON in low light conditions. The ambient light sensor is a light-sensitive transistor that varies its voltage signal to the body control module (BCM) in response to changes in the outside (ambient) light level. When the BCM receives this signal the BCM turns ON just the low beam headlamps at reduced intensity for the daytime running lamp (DRL) operation. A resistor wire is used (CKT312) to reduced the voltage which reduces the light intensity for the DRL's function. The ambient light sensor can also turn ON the low beam headlamps and the exterior lamps for automatic lamp control (ALC). Any function or condition that turns ON the headlamps will cancel the DRL operation (this means no reduced voltage to the low beam lights). Thirty seconds after you start the engine with the headlamp switch in the OFF position, the DRL will perform one of two actions:
?€¢
Illuminate the low beam headlamps at reduced intensity in daylight conditions


?€¢
Illuminate the low beam headlamps and exterior park lamps for low light conditions

The DRL operates when the ignition switch is in the RUN position, the parking brake is not set and the transmission is not in the PARK position When these conditions are met and the DRL ambient light sensor indicates daylight conditions the DRL will illuminate
Should have BCM scanned for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes , could have DTC'S stored in memory !
DTC B2645 Ambient Light Circuit
The body control module (BCM) monitors the ambient light sensor signal circuit in order to determine if the daytime running lights (DRL) or the auto headlights (ALC) should be turned ON in the AUTO mode. When the BCM senses the ambient light sensor voltage is between 1.75-4.9 volts, either the DRL will be commanded ON or the ALC will be commanded ON.

  1. Turn ON the headlamps.
  2. Ensure that the headlamp dimmer switch is in the LOW position.
Do both low beam headlamps illuminate?
Is only one low beam headlamp inoperative? YES / NO
IF no
  1. Disconnect the lamps switch assembly.
  2. Install a jumper between the headlamp switch headlamps ON signal circuit and ground.

Lights turn themselves on and off


I have seen conditions of poor / missing ground, high humidity and nearby two way radio operation (CB, Ham, Police, Taxi, etc.) cause unattended operation (on and off).

Make sure the switch surfaces are clean and dry. Try changing metal switch plates to plastic / nylon (and vice-versa) types.

Ensure that the switch is grounded. Before removing switch from box, shut power OFF. Carefully pull the switch from the box and make sure the switch's ground wire is connected to the ground conductors in the box.

Ultimately, if you are unable to solve the problem with these true touch dimmers, changing to a rotary knob / slide operated dimmer or even a standard toggle switch should work without incident.

I hope this helps and good luck!

Daytime running light


[Information] For a 2002 Toyota Camry, the Daytime Running Lights (DRL) operate utilizing the High Beams (inner Lamps closer to the center of the vehicle front) at a reduced power.

[The troubleshooting process:] Review the Owner's Manual and ensure the test configuration matches the following criteria:
1. According to the 2002 Toyota Camry Owner's Manual (Check your Owners Manual):
"The DRL system will make your headlights come on at a reduced brightness when:
The light switch s in the "DRL" position.
The ignition is on with the engine running.
The headlight switch is off.
The parking brake is released."


2. Set the Test Conditions according to Step 1 above.

3. Check the headlight bulbs to ensure they are not burned out. If one burns out, there is a fair chance that the other would have burned out at the same time. Replace as necessary. In this case, if the high beams operate, the DRLs should also operate.
4. Test the system, ensuring the step 1 conditions are set. (Engine running, Multi-function Switch on Turn Signals in "DRL" position, headlight switch off (repeating what the manual says -- it should be obvious that in the "DRL" position, the headlight switch should be off / do not have the switch positioned to "High Beam"), and the Parking Brake "off").
5. If DRL lights do not work, check the engine compartment Fuse and Relay Box. there is a 5 Amp DRL fuse -- replace it with the spare. Test (step 4).
6. If it does not work, swap around or replace relays -- there are three (3). Any one of them could be bad (stuck or burned out). Test (step 4).
7. Other less likely possible issues could be that the Multi-function Switch is broken or a connection / wire is broken. [Beyond the scope of this process.]


My problem was that the test configuration did not have the engine running and parking brake off - Step 1. Problem solved with much thought, repetitive tests on the vehicle and going back to the basics -- what does the Owner's Manual say and where are the applicable fuses and relays located?

Brake lights won't work.... replaced fuse it's fine, top light on hatch works, but right and left don't


need to check the multi-function switch. the brake light signal goes through the turn signal switch on the steering column. the brake lights come on if the turn signal is not being operated. the circuit for the brake light can loose contact in the switch.

What does FH mean on a kenmore front load washer and where can i get a manual


F/H:
Condition
No water detected entering machine or Pressure switch trip not detected.

If after 30 seconds the control does not detect water entering machine and then valves will be turned off and the error code will be displayed.


Or
If the control has turned the water valves on and after 8 minutes the flow meter has detected 10.5 gallons of water passing through it, but has not detected the pressure switch trip, the valves will be turned off and the error code will flash.

Check/Repair:


Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.

  • If there is no water in the unit:




  • 1. Make sure that both valves at the water source(s) are turned on all the way.

    2. Check for plugged or kinked inlet hoses or plugged screens in the inlet valves
    3. Verify inlet valve operation

  • If there is water in the unit:

    1. Verify Drain pump operation
    2. Pressure Switch Hose is in good condition and properly connected to Tub and Pressure switch
  • Verify there is not a siphon problem
  • Verify wire harness connections to:Inlet Valves, Pressure Switch, Drain Pump, Flow Meter, and Central Control Unit (CCU)
  • Check all hoses for possible leaks
  • Verify pressure switch operation
  • Verify flow meter operation
  • Verify CCU operation
If this is intermittent, it would be very hard to determine the cause.
I myself have rarely run into this issue, and when I did, it was mainly caused by low water pressure into the water from the customers water supply, or clogged inlet water valve screens.
Make sure you don't have any duct tape or something around your drain pipe, it needs that air gap to prevent siphoning.
