I have problem with my ECU.. a transistor inside was burnt up..What could have caused it..

Several things can cause a transistor to burn out. Water or moisture contamination is the most common. Also, voltage spikes in the charging system,low voltage due to poor or corroded grounds or loose connections,bad solder points due to age and vibration that creates excessive resistance on the circuit board.

Check your main fuse box to ensure you have not blown a large cicuit breaker/fuse e,g 80amps

Golf battery polarity

reversed polarity,check fuses. check the system for burnt wires also !
Always hook up your battery terminals correctly, as the alternator may be damaged if the battery is hooked up backward. jump start car, if it will. there should be at least 13.7 to 14.2 volts at battery posts while its running. if alternator is ok.

Car keeps blowing the efi fuse 15 and fuel pump wont run

I surmise you have a shorted fuel injector or injector driver transistor. The engine computer probably knows something is wrong and is not turning on the fuel pump relay as a safety measure. You will need a digital multimeter or a VOM to track down the problem.

Remove the EFI fuse, turn the ignition to ON, but don't start the engine. Measure the voltage between ground and each terminal of the EFI fuseholder. You will make the following tests at the terminal that does NOT have 12 Volts on it (fuse output). Turn off the ignition and disconnect the battery.

Measure the resistance from the fuse output terminal. It will probably be much less than 1 Ohm. The next thing is to check the fuel injectors. Disconnect the injectors one at a time and check the resistance . If the resistance suddenly increases substantially more on one injector than it does when the others are unplugged, you've found the culprit. Now you need to check the injector driver transistor. One of the wires to the injector is 12 V from the fuse output and the other goes to the transistor. Check the resistance to ground. If it is 0 or close to it, the transistor is fried, and the EFI module (or engine computer if it is contained there) will need to be repaired or replaced. Also, compare the resistance of the suspect injector with the others. If it is substantially less, the injector coil is bad (a failure in one part can ruin the other, so check both).

Starter clicks after repllacing starter and battery

Check battery terminals--are they tight? Was the car starting before the battery and starter were replaced, or why were they replaced? We can troubleshoot.

Xrp 18v dewalt drill worked fine with plenty of juice in battery and suddenly stopped working. What could be wrong with it?

if your batts are ok and the batt connection terminals look ok you may have either faulty switch burnt off wire at brushholder or reqire new brushes

try chaning you cap and rotor.... if the cap and rotor do not good contact than it will not start..... you also might consider doinf a plugs and wire change as well....
