I melted the input for my 12 volt connection well just the plastic around it. Is there anyways i can fix this, or does someone know where i would be able to send it in to be fixed? My amp still gets power, but when its hooked up to my subs, the protection light comes on. sometimes it wont and it still doesn't push anything out of my subs... Its a digital audio dad1504

The high current drain due to a possible short in the sub output drivers must have pushed the connectors to melt off and fail.
Your amplifier driver MOSFETS might have shorted to bring about the protection on. Make sure that the wiring to the sub woofer is not touching a ground or shorting.
You can ask any audio tech. to have a look within and test for shorted driver outputs.

I have a 2002 Honda 954RR. The fuel pump is not kicking on when I turn the key. How do I check the fuel pump relay to see if its working

the fuel pump relay has 4 leads. one is positive to battery, one is negative, ground, one is input voltage(on/off), and one is load (to the fuel pump +). Locate a 12 volt dc power source and connect the negative to the relay ground, and the positive to the relay input voltage lead. When 12 volts is applied to the input voltage, you should hear a click of the relay opening- additionally, if you have a multi-tester, you can also check for continuity (resistance, ohmage) by connecting the multi-tester to the 2 other leads. when the input voltage lead receives the 12 volts, you should hear a click AND the multitester should detect continuity in the circuit, and lose continuity when the 12 volt is removed from the input voltage lead.

My 2000lincoln navigator won't start after disconnecting the battery to do a system reset and I don't know what went wrong

check the battery voltage with a volt meter. it should read something higher than 12 volts maybe as much as 14 or 15. have someone turn the key while reading the meter connected to the battery. if the voltage drops to 12 volts or below it would appear you have a bad battery. if this does not fix the problem, you will need to do some advanced troubleshooting. a chilton or haynes service manual may be of some help.

Battery not charging

FYI: I'm not a mechanic, but I think i can explain how to easily troubleshoot/fix a vehicle that is not charging it's battery.

1. Are the Connections Clean? Make sure the connections on the battery terminals are clean and tight. The most common cause of this problem is corroded or loose connections on the battery.

2. Got enough Voltage? If you don't know how to use an electrical meter, don't try! Find someone who knows! The power in a car battery CAN KILL YOU! So, you should find that, when the car is running, the voltage at the battery is more than +12 Volts. If it's less than 12 volts, test (or replace) the alternator. If it's more than 12 volts, replace the battery.


Hope this little tid-bit of info is helpful to some of you. Good luck.

I was curious, if i put my 2055 scanner on 12 volts, instead of the required 13 volts, will it hurt it?

You won't damage anything with 12 volts. Equipment built for use in automobiles will often have a DC input marked 13.8 volts because it's the voltage delivered by a fully-charged battery. But any supply around 12 volts will work. Just be sure the supply has enough current available (around an amp should be fine for a scanner), and that you get the polarity right when connecting it.

Rolling screen? Mitsubishi tv model vs 60705. It rolls right to left, but when you turn the pip on it doesn't roll on the pup screens. What is the problem? What part do I need to fix it? I already have...

I want you to know I have been where you are on this same TV and what I found is there are three ICs all in close proximity on the SIGNAL BOARD that I recommend strong you try REPLACING all caps on the ICs as follows:

IC2P02--12 volts input and 9 volts output
change C1P01 on input 47 mfd/35 volts
change C2P03 on output 100mfd/16 volts

IC2P01--11.9 volts on input and 9 volts output
change C2P04 on input 47 mfd/50 volts
change C2P05 on output 100 mfd/16 volts

IC2P03--4 volts on input pin 5 and 3.2 volts on output 1 and 3.7 volts input on pin 2 and output pin 4 is 3.2 volts.
change C2P07 47 mfd/35 volts
change C2P09 100 mfd/16 volts

I know this is a bit technical but it is what is wrong with your set. Caps have polarity (positive and negative connections) They all must be unsoldered and new ones soldered back
The Signal Board usually has the tuner on it where the coax connects. The board needs to be removed by unplugging it to change the caps.

My laptop fan is making big noises ,my laptop model is sony vaio vgn-cs190,what should i do replace it or any suggestions.please let me know

If it sounds like a plastic helicopter, them you have a problem with the heat (which probably melted the area around the fan, not the fan itself) that comes from leaving it on a non-hard surface. You should never have it on a bed or blanket or carpet for more than 10 min. But anyways, you will either want to take it to a repair shop (don't let them **** you around though, make sure THEY know that YOU know that it's only 15 minutes of work to fix) or you can go buy a new one. I had the same problem with a Compaq that had dual processors. I could practically cook an egg with it, but i actually ended up having to cut and reshape the ports for the heat to escape better (and to make the helicopter noise stop). So if you have ANY know-how at all and can do it yourself, or you husband, son, wife maybe? just guessing here... Anyway what i was trying to say is it would be about 10 times cheaper to have someone fix it unprofessionally. But that is only if it's making the helicopter noise. I really should have had you clarify before i started typing i guess.

One of the connections is shorting and melting the plastic the plastic on the wire is also bubbling, how do we fix this as the lights are also not coming on from that connection.

The connectors get loose and corrode over time, resulting in a high resistance connection that produces a lot of heat, melting the connections, as you have witnessed. Cut back the wires to good insulation and splice them with waterproof splice connectors or waterproof wire nuts from the local hardware.

You'll need two connectors or wire nuts. Each connector will connect 3 wires: one wire IN from upstream , one wire OUT to the next light, and one wire to the light.

Since the voltage is 12 volts AC, polarity doesn't matter, however, if you look closely at the cable, you'll see that one of the wires has ridges.

Now is also a good time to check the connectors on the other lights.

Blows 15 amp car fuse as soon as switch is turned on nothing plugged into inverter

If the fuse doesn't blow until you turn the inverter on, the problem is in the input circuit. First, be sure the polarity is correct when you're connecting the inverter. If you manage to get the 12 volts hooked up backwards this will blow the fuse. If the input polarity is correct, the diode inside that protects against reverse polarity may be shorted. Beyond that, it's difficult to make any suggestions about what parts to check. You would need to use an ohmmeter to check the parts in the input for very low readings from the 12 volt input to ground. If you can do this yourself or know someone who can, it might be worth a try. But if you try to take this somewhere for service - if you can find a shop willing to look at it - it may be more economical just to replace it.

Good luck with the inverter, and thanks for using Fixya!
