If it continues to bilnk a red light after it turns off, this is known as the yellow light of death(ironic i know). This is caused when the unit overheats causing solder on the board to melt and bridge(connect). Once this happens it shorts out the board causing the error you have now. Contact Sony and see if the unit is still under warranty.

If the unit is not under warranty go to www.wiredextreme.com. We are a console repair company based in Texas, and we can get your console up and running again. All of our repairs come with a 90 day warranty that covers the whole console, not just what we repaired. We also offer extended warranties up to 4 years at additional cost. If you have any other questions/concerns feel free to email support@wiredextreme.com or call toll free 1-888-389-3038.

Strech it is a dash mounted I have five gallon fat bobs key switch in middle


The BLACK wire (that you say you know goes to the battery), would be the HOT lead, shown as a TAN wire in the diagram.
Per the diagram, it actually connects to lug #1 on the STARTER RELAY.

As far as the RED and BLUE wires, you need to figure which is for the lights, and which is for the ignition.
My GUESS is RED's the ignition, and BLUE is the lights.

If your switch is a THREE position (ACC, OFF, IGN), it might not matter, as these switches are set up to run the lights whenever the ignition is on.

The older FOUR position switches (ACC, OFF, IGN, LIGHTS) are so you can manually select if you want to run the headlight or not, and would also have a fourth wire coming off the switch.

In the middle of a game online it went black and now the game disc will not eject. Also when we turn it off and on again , when we press the front right to turn it on the console light goes green for 1...


HARD RESET

1. Power Off the PS3 via the power switch in back and power back on w/switch. (60gb FAT if no switch in the back unplug it then plug it back in after a few seconds)
2. Hold Power Button on the Front until you hear 3 beeps.
3. Then go through the initial setup and then run a full Format via System > Format. (will take approx 3 1/1 hours). You may need to have our AV cables ready if your using HDMI (in case HDMI isn't detected after initial reset).
4. Restore your backup you made prior to doing factory/hard reset (optional, if you created a backup).

In the middle of playing it shuts off and a red light starts to beep and flicker on and off


Unfortunately, you are going to need to have your PS3 serviced by Sony. If your disc is stuck inside, if flip the switch button off on the back of the PS3. Then press and hold the eject button and turn the button at the back on again. This should eject the disc.

Wiring a double light switch


Electricity can kill!
Proceed with caution some of the wires (probably the red) may be live all the time. IF IN DOUBT CALL AN ELECTRICIAN!
First thing is to remove the fuse from or switch off the circuit breaker controlling this circuit and ensure all wires are dead using a circuit or neon tester.
Check the back of the switch terminals should be marked C (for Common), 1 and 2 for each switch. The red wire that was fixed would most likely have been in a C terminal, the other red wire that was free should go to the other C terminal.
The fixed blue wire may be in a 2 (or sometimes a 1) terminal, fix the other blue into the same numbered terminal of the other circuit.
