    know about fuses. have the top off.fuse is under the plug. how do you take the fuse cover off to replace it.
    also if the thermal protection circiut has tripped does it reset itself or do you have to reset it?if so,how

    Ok, doesn't seem to be the fuse. Was able to pop it out (it was the fuse cover I was having difficulty with... would not open until I used enough force I was sure I would break it!)It had a spare fuse, popped that in and no dice. Bought a new fuse today, again, no dice.

    I've opened the system up, just to take a look, (I'm a computer hardware tech... so I know just enough to be dangerous with electronics :)and I find no loose connections, nothing visibly 'fried', and remarkably little dust. I blew out some dust from the fans and around a couple of contacts.. .but nothing significant.

    I'm beginning to believe that it may be the thermal protect circuit/switch. I'm thinking the system was left on and the fan may have been blocked causing the switch to trip... Perhaps over and over until the switch died? Just a thought.

    I started surfing looking for repair schematics for this system and found only one site, bought the archived file for $15 AND ... of course ... it craps out on the download (several times) AND... of course ... won't refund the cash. :)

    I know I'm asking you to fly blind here... but could you help me identify where the thermal protection switch/circuit may be? I dosen't seem to be that hard to replace ... yea yea... I DO understand use epoxy/screws and do not solder (or use needlenose plier as a heat sink) Like I said, I know enough to be dangerous :)

    Or perhaps you could give another suggestion as to why it won't power on?

You could remove the cover and find the fuse and replace it with the same voltage and current rating.
Make sure you unplug the device before start working on it.

    It could be just snap in, if you use a small flat screwdrivers and pull gently to remove it.

    If the fuse is good, the thermal protection is engaged. If that is the case there might be something else wrong with your device, it could have a defective amplifier IC or transistor.

    If this device is less then 2 years old, I would suggest to call the manufacturers and ask them to fix it for you under warranty.

Headlights went out on a 98 ford escort while driving

if both headlights went out at the same time, check your fuses. because high beams use more power than headlights, they are often on a separate fuse. if fuses are fine, replace the headlights.

Dead in the water

Have you checked for fuses in/at, thermostat ? What type of RV is this in? Power board should need to be replaced again, if at all, my guess is it's something else. Do you hear any "clicking" form unit when you move thermostat to other settings? Is nothing working at all, fan, furnace etc?

2000 escort - tuner does not work but CD and TAPE are fine

most likely is the radio itself- typical ford radio... best bet is look in a junkyard for a new radio- there are no fusible links- there usually is just one 10amp fuse in the inside fusebox. but if the cd& tape players work it is in the stereo itself. hope this helps and good luck

2000 ford escort want start. checked fuses and battery . try to turn over but want what can i check. it was running went in house and came back out would not start


Get a jump start, with good set of leads.

If no joy , follow the Positive lead from the battery to the starter motor, and give it a tap with a small hammer or big spanner, while someone turns the ignition key.

Good Luck !

Remember to give me a FixYa rating....Thanks...John.
