GE rf modulator cat number AV 20182

This modulator just stopped working. Do they "burn out"? Is there anything I can do to test it or fix it? Or do I just replace it?

SOURCE: i also have the problem with the TV,,,,the TV uses

Sounds like you are getting RF feedback... this is because it is a lower quality RF Modulator. You could try to get some "Ferrite" "Rings" or Snap on "Blocks" and put the around the cables to mitigate this, or you could try somehow making sure all the earths are good. Reorientate the RF box further away,, even try wrapping it in Aluminium Foil.

Is there anything I can diagnose '91 volvo 940 turbo myself? Mechanics say can't find anything wrong with car. It stall like losing power fuel pump relay & ignition fuse get hot sometimes

the pointer is the hot ignition fuse
that indicates excessive current draw almost to the point of blowing the fuse
with the car stalling ( stopping /cutting out) I would be focusing the attention on the electronics of the vehicle in areas of the ignition control module or the ECM itself
there could be components that ore overheating and failing or shorting and overheating and failing
The ECM you can test by getting a known good unit and substituting it and the ignition control module can be like wise replaced or checked by an accredited auto electrician who has the test equipment
Lastly you can go to autozone and see if the fault codes can be read ( free) or to an accredited service shop that has experience on volvo cars ( may cost for the reading) and fix what faults show up

Dash lights and over head light stopped working. Could this be the headlight, dimmer switch?

It could be ,depends on the make,model an year vehicle. Best to test power B+ voltage an grounds > I don't know what if anything you know about automotive electronics. You can go to youtube an check out some videos on basic automotive electrical testing an trouble shooting . Some newer vehicles the dash lights are controlled by a module , BCM - body control module ,SJB - smart junction box etc.... You can go to for free wiring diagrams an see what all is involved in the circuit. I don't like to see people waste there money just replacing parts . I have been fixing vehicles for over thrity years . Started at a Chevy dealer right out of a two year automotive program back in 1984 .

My power windows and wipers stopped working on my 1995 ford explorer

Your wiper system and your power windows share several different circuits and components including the Battery Saver Relay, The Inadvertent Power Relay and the Generic Electronic Module. Each of these circuits need to be tested individually to determine the location of the failure. Chances are that one repair will fix both your power windows and your wipers. However, locating the actual cause is going to be the tough part and wil require some considerable skills in diagnosing automotive electrical systems.

If you think you can handle it yourself and you have the testing equipment necessary to diagnose the circuits, I can guide you through it.

1993 Dodge Dynasty. Wipers stopped working. Replaced fuse. Still not working. Replaced Body Control Module(BCM) located inside kickboard(passenger side). Still not working. Tried a second BCM, didn't...

BCM's are part number specific to your particular vehicle so unless you got from a dealer and had the dealer flash it for you none will work.

Caravan's had the same problem with their bcm's

Did you test the motor to see if it was working before you got the bcm's?

Did you test the wiper motor switch?

Also test the wiper motor relay.

Blower will not start, will not fire

Doubtful. Clean the bolts and re-mount but I doubt that'll fix your problem. Check spark with an in-line spark checker. Be sure you have the right oil/gas mix...or you will burn it up. How did you check compression, what is the reading? Anything less than 100 means the piston ring is stuck.
