Electric windows in most new cars today are a convenience item, but when they break, it's anything but convenient. Most problems stem from the wiring or the window motor itself. This article will explain how to check and, if necessary, fix your electric windows.
The steps are:
1 Check the fuses under the driver's side dash. Locate the fuse for the electric windows. If it has popped, replace the fuse.
Step 2
Play with the electrical switches. Over years of use, dirt and debris can clog the switches. If the windows go up or down intermittently, then this is the issue. Squirt some alcohol into the switch area and clean with q-tips.
Step 3 Check for any loose connections at the fuse box. Also check for any frayed wiring. You can repair loose wiring by re-wrapping it with electrical tape and securing the connection.
Step 4 Undo the negative cable on the battery terminal. Wrap the end of a flat head screwdriver with a rag to prevent damage to your door panel and trim. Pry the trim and door panel off with the screwdriver. Locate the window motor. In most cars, it is held on with a few screws in the center of the door. Unplug the electrical connections and unscrew the brackets holding the unit in place. Replace the unit and test it to ensure your electric window is functioning properly.
Check the fuse panel for fuses with disrupted filaments. Fuse panels are typically on the left side of the dashboard between the dash and the door. The electric window system is linked to the fuses in this panel, and there may also be a secondary fuse box under the hood on the driver's side fender. This secondary panel operates primary engine functions, but some manufacturers run window subsystems through this box. Replace any blown fuses with a new unit that has the proper rating (indicated by color). Step 2 Disconnect the battery by turning the positive terminal bolt counterclockwise with a socket wrench. Pry the electric window switch panel from the door or armrest with a screwdriver. Disconnect the switches from the wiring harness by pulling the adapter plugs apart with your hands. Smell the switch assembly for a burn odor, and check it for excessive moisture. Replace the switch assembly with a new unit or replace the individual switches. Step 3 Remove the door panel by turning the interior door handle screws counterclockwise with the screwdriver. Turn the armrest bolts counterclockwise with the socket wrench. Pull the panel firmly with your hands to disengage the pop rivets holding it to the door metal. When all the rivets are loose, the panel will come away from the door. Set it aside, away from the work area. Step 4 Check the window regulator joints for damage. Any damaged joints will require complete replacement of the window regulator (turn the mount bolts counterclockwise and maneuver the regulator from the door). Grab the window glass and lightly move it back and forth in the regulator to check it for play. There should be no play in the side-to-side motion of the glass; if there is, then it may be stuck due to being misaligned. Secure the glass connections to the regulator by tightening the fittings. Be sure to align the glass before tightening the fittings, and do not tighten them too far. Many manufacturers differ in the construction of this fastener, so check with the repair manual for your specific model. Step 5 Replace the electric motor by unplugging it from the wiring harness and turning the mount bolts counterclockwise with the socket wrench. Pull the motor from the regulator gears. Position the new motor into the regulator gears, then secure the mount bolts in a clockwise direction with the socket wrench. Reconnect the wiring harness by pressing the adapter plugs together with your hands. Step 6 Reattach the door panel by pressing it to the pop rivets, tapping firmly to seat each one. Turn the armrest bolts and interior door handle screws in a clockwise direction until they are snug. Step 7 Reconnect the power window switches to the wiring harness by pressing the adapter plug together. Press the switch assembly into the door panel until it is seated. Step 8 Reconnect the battery by turning the positive terminal bolt in a clockwise direction with the socket wrench.

Well you are going to have to get a new gasket. Now the doors are pretty easy to fix, but you will have to remove the doors to get at them. You really should get a service manual, for your whip, and in there it shows you step by step what to do.

How to remove the battery to pandital

Removing the PDN bottom coversCaution Be careful not to put too much pressure on the display, there's glass under there! The larger back cover slides down away from the smaller cover. there s is a seam on the back that divides the two It is held in place internally by 2 strips of double sided tape, one on each side. Start by working a thin plastic tool guitar pick into the horizontal seam under the Pandigital logo. The cover is held securely by clips on the sides one in the center of the seam. As you open the seam, you are trying to overcome the grasp of the double sided tape & that's all. Be sure slide the cover down sufficiently 1/8 before you try to lift it up. Once you move it far enough to hear the hold of the tape let go, you should be able to lift the cover off. There is nothing electrical connected to the back cover. In the video, the double sided tape has already been removed & the cover slides open more easily than the first time. It is not necessary to remove the tape, as it will loose some of it's holding power & the cover will usually be easier to remove in subsequent attempts Removing the smaller (upper) back cover This info is a bit more sketchy, as I have not found detailed instructions, instead it is a collection of tips from those who have done it. The top of the back plate will be where the most resistance is. What I found is that you need to get the upper right side loose first if looking from the back once that's loose, you basically pry it off from there. It is very difficult to get off, even after the tape is detached. Every time I've done it I was sure I broke the **** thing because you get that cracking sound that makes your hair stand on end This cover does not slide to be lifted off like the larger cover. Instead you pry the sides OUT, because the tabs that hold it on push straight IN. Once you get those it's a matter of overcoming your fear and pulling hard enough to tear loose from the tape. Also, be smart. The top doesn't slide, but it has to be pushed UP to clear the switches. and remove the sd card

My gas tank is building up excess pressure when the bike is on for a while or after riding only short distances. This causes a high pitched squeal when the pressure gets too high. If pressure is not...

The tank is building up too much pressure because the pressure relief valve in the gas cap is blocked.All gas caps are vented-(otherwise the tank has to be somewhere- like on Canadian models with fuel evaporative systems on them).
clear the blockage or replace the cap & you should be fine.
Under most roadbike gas caps is a cover held in place with two screws-remove them to dissasemble the cap & clear the blockage in the cap vent
If yours is a Canadian(maybe US models are the same)-model then the problem is in the fuel evaporative system. Check out this link.

Hope this is helpfull.
Kind regards Andrew Porrelli

My reliance sta-kleen 502 is leaking. The water is dripping on top of the pilot light, extinguishing the flame . Please advise me with step by step instructions to diagnose and attempt fix this myself....

If you have a leaking water heater there is a serious problem.
Page shows how to limp along on a leaking water heater if your water heater needs replacement.

One of three things is causing the water:
1) Loose water connection on top of tank that is dripping down inside tank >> check pipes on top of tank.

2) The vent is clogged or not working correctly causing condensation inside flue pipe.
Condensation water is dripping back down inside tank.
Problem means possible CO poisoning if gas is not venting.
Look at vent pipe to see if joints are corroded.
Use long fireplace match > light match and put into draft hood at top of tank and see if smoke goes up.
Put hand at draft hood opening when water heater turns on to see if vent gas enters home.
Do same test when furnace turns on to see if furnace vent is pushing back into water heater.
Does water heater vent inside same pipe as furnace? You may need to set up separate vent for water heater if furnace gasses are pushing back into home.
Check furnace vent for obstructions.
Look at vent stack top of home to see if hood is in place.
Check if bird nest is built inside warm vent pipe.
Improper flue is top priority for getting fixed so vent gasses properly escape home.
You may have to call a plumber.
Professional plumbing forum:

3) Your water heater is rusted out.
A rusted tank has to be replaced.
It cannot be repaired.
However, before replacing tank, you do not want a tank failure where tank ruptures and water runs inside home until water is shut off.
This will cause major damage.
Protect yourself first.
Turn off water valve above tank.
Move gas knob to 'pilot' so burner is not heating water.
Open tub spout on hot side to relieve pressure on tank so it will not rupture.

Now you're protected.
Link above shows how to limp along on failed tank until you can replace heater.

You need a new gas water heater from Lowes or Home Depot
Look at label on side of you tank for gallons and btu's of your water heater.
Measure height to flue pipe so you get same height water heater, so pipes don't have to be changed.
You need a pipe wrench and teflon tape which will be wrapped on each pipe thread when pipes are reassembled.

Step1) Drain water heater using valve at bottom of tank.

2) Turn off gas valve going into heater.
When gas valve is perpendicular to gas line, then gas is off.
Dissemble gas line to water heater.

3) Disconnect flue pipe and support flue pipe with wire so it doesn't not fall down. Flue pipe joints should be held together at each joint with 3 screws.

4) Turn off water. Shut off valve is on COLD side.
Disconnect water pipes.

5) Move old water heater out of way.

6) Set new water heater in place. Put water heater in drip pan.

7) Connect water pipes >> cold goes to side marked cold.
Hot to hot.
Buy new flexible water connector pipes at home center for easy installation of water pipes.

8) Connect gas line exactly as it was connected before.
Home center sells flexible gas line connector for easy installation of gas line.
To test for gas leak after installation, mix liquid soap with water and put around gas line joints to see if there are bubbles.
Natural gas has less pressure than water lines, so gas pipes are easy to seal with ordinary wrench.

9) install TP pipe that runs to floor. Use old one off old heater.

10) Fill tank completely with water until water is coming out of tub spout.

11) Turn on gas, and light pilot as shown in manual.
New gas heater sometimes have small water leak when first fired up, so ignore a bit of water.

12) Save water heater manual like it is gold, and read everything in manual.

I have no gas running to the engine from the front tank, and apparently have gas filling into the front tank from the rear tank. I can only use the rear tank. The switch is set for the rear tank and when I...

I have had the exact problem on my ford truck, and fixed it. There is a tank feed shuttle valve mounted to the drivers side frame rail that is the most likely suspect. It operates by fuel pressure and when it fails, it fails so the front tank doesnt work.

It is worth mentioning that there are three fuel pumps on your truck, each fuel tank has a small low pressure pump inside the tank, and there is a high pressure pump located on the drivers side frame rail too, just before the fuel filter.

The front in the tank pump could be bad, too, but most likely the shuttle valve is the problem.

2003 Honda VTX 1300 cuts out while riding

Hi, Gerald_erick and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
2. Failed alternator/generator and or voltage regulator.
3. Loose or corroded battery terminals and or cables especially the "NEGATIVE" cable, look for loose, corroded, or broken connectors inside the cable harness at "BOTH" ends.
4. Failed main circuit breaker or ignition switch, check for loose connections and continuity.
5. Failed system and or ignition relay, check for continuity.
6. Failed ignition coil, stator, magneto, ignition/electronic module.
7. Failed CKP, CPS, CMP, MAP, TPS, or BAS sensor, corroded, loose or broken wire connector pins/sockets.
8. Throttle cables and or idle speed improperly adjusted hot idle speed should be 950 RPM to 1000 RPM.
9. Faulty neutral, side stand or clutch lever safety switch.
10. Faulty or corroded kill switch.
11. Accelerator pump damaged or not working.
12. Water or dirt in the fuel system, carburetor or filter.
13. Restricted, blocked or kinked fuel line.
14. Fuel tank empty.
15. The gas cap is not venting properly or fuel tank venting system blocked, loosen gas cap and go for a test ride.
16. A failed fuel pump, pressure regulator and or fuel injectors.
17. Vacuum line from intake manifold to petcock broken, cracked, or not attached, carburetor vent line plugged.
18. Needle and seat stuck closed in the float bowl.
19. Petcock clogged or damaged.
20. Lean angle switch is faulty or needs adjustment.
21. Catastrophic engine failure, perform a compression test.

Fuel pump location 1988 ford econoline

Theres 2 pumps one in the tank, lift pump, and one in the chassis rail under the driver side. The one in the tank is cheap, the one in the rail is not. The one in the tank only produces low pressure to prime the main pump and if it is broken, may not cause that much of an issue except when starting. the one in the rail is a no-start if it fails. The idea is that the rail pump can supply high pressure for the injectors, so a fuel pressure test at the injector rail will determine which pump is playing up. Hope that helps Tim

1985 Ford F-150 Failed Smog - Gas tank failed pressure test.

Basically what he does is pressurizes the tank and all the lines up to the charcoal cannister.
Anywhere from the hose from the filler neck to the tank could be cracks or loose clamps.

The top of the tank has a seal for the fuel pump and rollover valves. These are rubber and could be leaking.

Under the hood you will see the charcoal cannister inbetween the radiator and engine on the passenger side. The hose could be unplugged or cracks. Or the cannister may of failed. The cannister is unseviceable
except for the valve thats on it if it has one.
You could spend a couple hours trying to find the problem especially if it on top of the tank.

What the shop will do is pressurize the tank again and with the smog machine sniffer they can stick it where you can't access to see if it can smell fumes.
Takes a shop 10 minutes to find the area if you want to know.

5. Pull to SLAM hard door closed with one hand while other hand holds button as per #4.
6. Watch window operate as it should.

7. Repeat steps 3-6 if necessary, usually the first try works!

This may be a temporary fix, works for few months or longer, repeat procedure when it fails again... :-)

Air compressor flips breaker before it will start?

Air compressors tend to draw more power as they age, however, will not trip breaker unless some malfunction. Here are some simple tests. Unplug compressor and turn the pump by hand, you may have to remove a cover to do this. It should turn freely; any resistance could be failing bearing (would make noise) unloader/check valve leaking allowing back pressure to pump, or failed start capacitor/start winding. Easy test for checkvalve. With pressure in tank loosen discharge hose at tank and check for air leak. Check valve should hold pressure in tank. Replace as needed. Failed capacitor/s will cause high amp draw. Remove from circuit and test. UF reading should be within 95% of printed rating. Finally, most air compressor motors have two windings, start and run. Power to windings is controlled by flyball switch inside rear of motor. This switch has contacts that can stick in start position and cause high amp draw. Examine windings for signs of overheating. Copper windings generally have color of new penny. Very dark brown windings bad news. Gook luck
