SOURCE: blower fan

you could use only 2 wires, R and G terms all you would get is blower fan. so on stat make sure you connect to R and G also. also did it have a fresh air return and you miss hooking up those wires, i have seen that before.

SOURCE: electric furnace/heater pump/fan unit won't shut off

There are dip switches on the main board.. When you remove the lower panel on the air handler there are instructions to where the dip switches should be for your units fan control. if the switches are in the correct configuration.. The Thermostat may be malfunctioning or not wired properly. and last.. and most expensive.. the motherboard may also be failing.

Bank one is toward the front of the vehicle. Sounds like the heated oxygen sensors have gone bad. The Oxygen Sensors are located in the exhaust pipe and require a special socket to remove and replace.

SOURCE: Lost Manual - not sure which is high or low

Hi. I'm a Ronson Service Centre.

I grabbled this blurb from a Ronson Slow Cooker Manual. Not the same model, but it has the same settings:

On Setting 1 (Low) the Slow Cooker can operate all day and night if required.
When set to 2 (High) it is very much like a covered pot on the stove. Foods will cook in ½ the time required for 1 (Low)
When set to Auto, the Slow Cooker will cook on 2 until the food reaches a pre-set temperature, then switches to 1 and maintains a constant slow cooking temperature.
“Auto” is the ideal setting for someone leaving the house for the whole day as most food will cook for 8-9 hours and be ready to serve when they return.

I moved into a flat with newlec NLSH24AN HEATER N NO INSTRUCTION. ..HELP


Hi Sharon,
This should be relatively easy.
You have storage heaters that only take in the hear during cheap rate electricity (at times you cannot change - typically between 00:00 and 07:00 but times vary - ask your electricity supplier).
.
The controls of an electric storage heater normally consist of two
dials to be found under a flap on the heater.

The input dial, sometimes known as the charge or overnight dial.
This control sets the amount of heat to be stored during the night.
It is best to be set on a seasonal basis: medium for
autumn/spring, high for winter.
If you find that you run out of heat before the end of the day,
and the Input is not on maximum, turn it up to store extra for the
following day.

The Output Dial sometimes known as the room temperature or boost dial.
This dial controls the amount of warm air or convected heat given out during the day. It opens and closes.

Finding the heater core on 2004 pontiac montana


The heater core is not usually the place to get trapped air out of the coolant system. But if you suspect an air block in the heater core. pull off the heater outlet hose loose at the engine, while the car is running. Before you start the car, loosen the hose clamp and have the hose ready to pull off. Start the car with the heater on high heat setting, then pull the hose off and watch for a slow steady stream of coolant from the hose. When you have a steady stream flow, you have no more air in the heater core. To purge any remaining air in the system, leave the radiator cap off with engine running until the car has reached normal operating temperature. Then shut off the car, top up the coolant in radiator and overflow tank, and put the radiator cap back on.

Service engine soon light codeP0141


Hi there:

This code means that the heated circuit in the oxygen sensor on bank 1 decreases time needed to enter closed loop. As the O2 heater reaches operating temperature, the oxygen sensor responds by switching according to oxygen content of the exhaust surrounding it. The ECM tracks how long it takes for the oxygen sensor to begin switching. It the ECM determines (based on coolant temp) that too much time elapsed before the oxygen sensor began operating properly, it will set P0141. See also: P0135 (Bank 1, Sensor 1).


A code P0141 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:

  • open or short to ground in the wiring harness
  • O2 heater circuit wiring high resistance
  • O2 heater element resistance is high
  • Internal short or open in the heater element

Note: Typically a failed catalytic converter does not cause this code. You're more likely to see a P0420 code for a failed converter.


Possible solutions:

  • Replace oxygen sensor (cannot repair open or short that occurs internally to sensor)
  • Repair short or open or high resistance in wiring harness or harness connectors


Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

1996 GRAND CHEROKEE CODE #P0141 AND P0138


Hi there:
Both codes refer at O2 sensor...


DTC P0141 - O2 Sensor Heater Circuit Malfunction (Bank 1, Sensor 2)
This code means that the heated circuit in the oxygen sensor on bank 1 decreases time needed to enter closed loop. As the O2 heater reaches operating temperature, the oxygen sensor responds by switching according to oxygen content of the exhaust surrounding it. The ECM tracks how long it takes for the oxygen sensor to begin switching. It the ECM determines (based on coolant temp) that too much time elapsed before the oxygen sensor began operating properly, it will set P0141. See also: P0135 (Bank 1, Sensor 1).



You will likely notice poor fuel economy the illumination of the Check Engine Light.



A code P0141 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
open or short to ground in the wiring harness
O2 heater circuit wiring high resistance
O2 heater element resistance is high
Internal short or open in the heater element
Note: Typically a failed catalytic converter does not cause this code. You're more likely to see a P0420 code for a failed converter.


Possible Solutions:
Replace oxygen sensor (cannot repair open or short that occurs internally to sensor)
Repair short or open or high resistance in wiring harness or harness connectors





DTC P0138 - O2 Oxygen Sensor Circuit High Voltage (Bank1, Sensor2)
The Heated Oxygen Sensor (2) located rear of catalytic converter produces an output signal relative to oxygen storage capacity of catalytic converter. Ho2S 2 signal is less active than signal produced by front oxygen sensor. This code sets when HO2 Sensor voltage is greater than 999 mV for more than 2 minutes (time depends on model. Could be as high as 4 minutes)



There may be no noticeable symptoms except for MIL illumination. Possible high fuel pressure can over rich the system.


A code P0138 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
Faulty O2 sensor
Short to battery voltage in O2 sensor signal circuit
High fuel pressure (not as likely)


Here are some potential solutions:
Replace O2 sensor
Repair short to battery voltage in o2 sensor signal circuit.

How to replace the heater core


1

Lift up your car's hood and locate the heater core. If you are not sure where the core is located, an auto parts store employee or a repair manual can help.
2

Remove the screws or bolts that hold the heater core in place. You may need to remove other parts of the car before being able to access the heater core.

3

Disconnect the intake and outtake hoses from the heater core. You may need a special tool to remove the couplings that connect the hoses to the heater core; refer to your car model's repair manual.
4

Remove the heater core. Be careful not to tip the core over, as coolant will leak out.
5

Reconnect the upstream and downstream hoses on the new heater core in the same matter that they were attached to the faulty core. Leaks can occur if the hoses are not connected properly.
6

Screw or bolt new heater core in place. Finally, replace all of the removed car parts.

How do you install a heater core for a1991 Mazda Navajo


remove dash assembly try to back flush first or drain cooling system put water back in add cascade dish washing soap and drive a couple days if heater starts woreking better turn heat on high run engine open drain with a hose nozel on high and a large pan under drain flush all water out with engine running refill system with heat on high and vehicle running if heat still weak remove heater hoses the top should be the return line put a hose about 8 inces long on both out lets run the bottom hose to a high area where it can be suspended put a funnel in upper hose poor clr into hose until it comes out top of lower hose let set for hour and a half then flush out with water into a clear jug flush water vthrough upper hose then if u have air compressor have a 6 inch hose attatched to upper pipe and blow out core into same jug until the jug has clean and clear water refill cooling system and drive if heat doesnt work at first put engine under a load to release residule deposits in heater core and it should start flowing

Trouble code p0059


Code P0059 is set when heater current requirements are too low or high in the heated oxygen sensor heater control circuit for sensor 1 on bank 2. Check the wiring and connections for high resistance. You could also have a bad sensor.

P0136, P1131, and P1151 codes on Ford Expedition 2000 4.6L


Your auto has four O2 sensors. Two upstream and two downstream; With two banks. Bank 1, sensor 1...and bank 2, sensor 1 are the two upstream (exhaust manifold before the catalytic). Bank 1, sensor 2 and bank 2, sensor 2 (other side of catalytic)

Code 1131= upstream; bank 1..sensor 1
Code 1151= upstream; bank 2..sensor 1
Code P0136 (generic code) bank 1..sensor 2 (questionable)

I wouldn't spend the money to purchase 3 sensors. Highly unlikely all three are bad; Cost is about $40/ ea.
Since there isn't a code for the cat's themselves, I would suspect the O2 circuit is malfunctioning. The rough idle is another clue.


Take an ohmmeter set it on X10 scale and measure the resistance from engine to body and body to negative post on battery terminal. You should read zero ohms (full needle deflection). If you do go buy two upstream O2 sensors. If you read
open or a high resistance run two straps from eng. to body...and body to neg.batt. post.

2005 Neon engine light came on and stays on. Car drives okay. Has around 34,000 miles. No other problems


Take it to Autozone or Advanced auto and get an engine diagnostic and ask them to printout the results. Most times it's a sensor.

Fan motor works on high


Really common problem on Fords. My '00 vic had it and my friends 06 mustang had it. The problem is the blower motor gets old and starts drawing too much amperage. The motor is controlled by (on manual HVAC systems) by a nichrome resistor bank located near the heater core. The extra amperage blows the thermo-resistor in the bank, and also does some damage to the corresponding harness. The reason it work's on "HIGH" is because that setting bypasses the bank completely. You can fix the problem pretty easily yourself but it is sort of annoying. First go get a new blower motor, either from Ford or some other place like Napa or autozone. Probably one of the latter because sometimes it seems dealer's aren't always the most cost effective solutions =] Now head on down to Ford and pick up the resistor bank (and most likely the harness, but check if it's burnt first) park your car, let it cool down, and pull off the radiator cap, keeping it on the hole (this keeps the pressure equal, and just set it on the hole so no random stuff gets in) pull off the coolant lines to the heator core, unbolt the resistor bank, set it next to the next new one, and wire up the new harness one wire at a time. plug in the new one, bolt it in, and reinstall the coolant lines. then put in the new blower motor, it should be on the lower passanger side on the engine bay. Now go enjoy your new fan speeds!
