This can be caused bu a lot of problems: the thermostat is faulty, the compressor is dead, the controlling valve is malfunctioning, the coolant/freon has leaked out, the fan doesn't work, the air channel between the freezer and the refrigerator is blocked, heck, there could be even a fault on an electric cable. Without more details and a serious testing it's impossible to provide a better answer. All i can say to you is to start checking for power: at the wall socket, at the thermostat, at the compressor, at the valve (if your unit has one). If all are active and functional then the fluid has been lost.

I need to know what the following codes mean for a 1989 Dodge Ram. 12 24 35 52 17

12 Battery or computer recently disconnected (will occur on most cars most of the time, it indicates a low / missing battery happened in the last 50 key starts. Don't worry about it. — Tom Wand)

24* Throttle position sensor over 4.96V (SEE NOTE #3)

35 Cooling fan relay circuit open or shorted

52 Oxygen sensor stuck at rich position (SEE NOTE #5!)
52 Internal logic module fault ('84 turbo only)

17 Engine stays cool too long (bad thermostat or coolant sensor?)

Matt Rowe: “The throttle postion circuit tells the computer how far the accelerator is depressed. The Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) is on the throttle body on the opposite side of the throttle cable. The connector should have a round rubber cover over the connections. Clear the fault codes, start the car and try jiggling the wires/connectors to try to trip a fault code. Loss of this signal could cause other problems.”
Tom Wand: “Throttle Position Sensors (TPS) will on some early 1990s trucks start to drift high in voltage, there was a problem with these and the idle will not set low enough. Need to replace if it does this. As I recall, the output voltage at idle is 2.4 volts, much above is no good.”

Wade Goldman wrote: In my case, the breather tube leading into the catalytic converter had rusted and become detached. This some how would cause the sensor to read an over rich condition and run crummy. I did not trust the reliability of the weld over a corroded surface and opted for the more expensive route of replacing the converter, breather tube and all.

More details can find in 80s-codes

Hope thats help (remember rated this FREE help) Good luck.

Wendy has 52 coins consisting of niclels and pennies. If the value of the coins is $1.20 then how many of each coins type does she have

Let X=Number of pennies
Then (52-x) =Number of nickels.

You can then say that:

(x*1) + (52-x)(5) = 120
x + 260 - 5x = 120
260 - 4x = 120
260 - 4x + 4x = 120 + 4x
260 = 120 + 4x
260 - 120 = 120 + 4x - 120
140 = 4x
35 = x = Number of pennies
52 - 35 = 17 = Number of nickels
Verify: (35 * .01) + (17 * .05) = $1.20
.35 + .85 = $1.20
$1.20 = $1.20

2005 F 150 A/C just won't keep the cab cool.

sounds like a compessor problem, it would have to be about 120 degrees outside for 47 degrees at the vent- should be around 30-35 degrees at the vent. sounds like the compressor is only working when its under load-which usually indicates internal failure

Norcold fridge not cool enough

Yes very likely the cooling unit has stopped working. You need to do a bypass test by unplugging the thermistor on the inside of fridge. It will be attached to the fins. Give it 6 hours or so and check your temps. If they are the same the cooling unit is bad. If the temp goes down the thermistor or circuit board is bad. If you need more assistance feel free to call.
