    Similar problem. If left in "auto" mode the unit comes on for 1 second every 5 seconds or so.

    I have the same issue. I think it's a bad sensor. I took the unit apart and tries adjusting the sensor that detects when you insert a piece of paper. By adjusting I could make the problem worse but I could never fix for good. I want to get that part for repair but not sure who to contact

Chances are a gear has broken. This problem requires labor and parts which in some cases is as much or more than the original equipment.

My Reduced Power light comes on for no apparent reason and service traction stabilizer light also, truck chugs and rpms go up but no power to go over 20mph

Your reduce power light is on for an apparent reason, it is running rough! Scan for a code and it may end up being a bad throttle position sensor and dirty throttle body.

Harley Davidson - FXSTI Softail standard cranks but will not start

Hi Anonymous, This one is a tuffy since I don't know what year your bike is. If you have an early model you could have a bad run/stop switch, ignition sensor, ignition switch, ignition module. If you have a late model could be crank positon sensor,electronic control module, but on the late stuff you can pull up trouble codes on the odometer and that would at least point you in the right direction. Good luck

Need more info.... If you are getting more than five years out of a battery, every day is a free gift. Ten years and you are running on borrowed time.

What's the question? You apparently did some diagnosis and found a possible cause for the engine quitting. Fix it or get it fixed.

Asus M2V motherboard has started locking up no apparent reason

Why don't you try these free programs first. Download the free program called CCleaner;
Run the cleaner than run the registry cleaner. See if you're system stops locking up.
Still no help? Download Defraggler and run it. Lastly on the same site download Speccy and check if there is a heat problem within the system.
If you feel its the MB you can replace it preform a simple google search;
Check for warrantys. You should find one that comes with a 1 year warranty.

Good luck!

Hi the car starts for 1 second then shuts down, plenty of fuel, new plug leads, new plugs, new filter, could it be the crank angle sensor?

When the vehicle was last running was the check engine light on? I would check the Mass Air Flow sensor and the Throttle Position Sensor. Although they seldom go bad on this car, the idle air control valve could be bad/dirty as well.
Some late year '98's might have chipped keys, if the key or module is bad this could prevent the car form starting as well.

Heater Shuts off at 1500 Watts

Could be a bad element if the heater does not run at all at 1500w.

If it runs a little before stopping, things could just be dirty causing the thermal sensor to shut it off. A good cleaning is needed in that case.

Good Luck,
