My power locks do not work until I turn on the ignition of the truck (2004 Dodge Ram 2500). Also, I can't get power to my radio (even after turning on ignition).


I would be checking all the fuse at the panel. Turn the key off and check the ones that are supposed to on(like the door locks). Also they should have B+ power(12 volts or so). When panels go bad Voltage can be anywhere from 0 to 7 or 8 volts. Then turn the key on and check. All the fuses should have power, except the exterior lights. On bad panels you'll see low voltage on some fuses. and with key off, you'll see voltage on fuses that supposed to be off.

Audi A3 8p what wires are what I'm wanting to fit a turbo timer there are 6 colours I just need the 3 12v constant ignition on 12v and the acc


use s volt meter. with the ignition off see what pins have 12 volts. turn the ignition on, see what additional pin has 12 volts. turn the ignition switch to accessory, see what additional pin had 12 volts.

should be pretty simple to figure out...

Any can tell what the 6 wires on the ignition loom want to fit turbo timer ?


Use a volt meter. with the ignition off see what pins have 12 volts. turn the ignition on, see what additional pin has 12 volts. turn the ignition switch to accessory, see what additional pin had 12 volts.

I connect the acc wire to 12 volt and stereo stays on all the time


The accessory wire is suppose to be hooked up to your ignition wire and not a constant 12 volt power source. Hooking it up to your ignition wire will only give the stereo power when your key is in the accessory position or in the running position. The constant power source that you mostly connected to is meant for the memory wire on your stereo which will allows it to save your setting when you turn the vehicle off and your stereo kicks off. Otherwise you will end up setting the clock and adjusting your EQ every time you turn it on.

The water heater red light keeps flashing rapidly on my Powervent 2 model 41VRP40N. It is not producing hot water and when I read the manual it says it needs more heat. What does this mean. How do I fix...


There are many things to check. The single most important test is for 24V at the gas valve after the ignitor is supposed tp be on. 19 V or less and there is either a bad ground or the ingition control board has failed. (Wire ground problems are a high probablilty)

Here is what the book says:

PROBLEM #1 - HOT SURFACE IGNITOR DOES NOT GLOW RED

(Remember to wait for purge time, 17/34 seconds, on models so equipped).

Possible causes

A. No main power

B. Faulty transformer

C. Faulty thermostat

D. Faulty limit switch

E. Faulty blower interlock switch

F. Faulty hot surface ignitor

G. Faulty ignition control

Solution

Step #1

Perform normal system checks of main power, transformer, thermostat, limit

switch, blower interlock switch, and replace faulty component.

Step #2

With power on and thermostat set at its highest position, check voltage

between "TH" and "TR" on HS780 ignition control. If 24 volts is not present

check output at transformer. If no, replace transformer. If transformer

checks out OK look at other controls in the 24 volt circuit I.E.: thermostat,

limit switch, blower interlock switch. Check for 120 volts between "neut"

(L2) and "120" (L1). Check for 120 volts at the ignitor across "IGN" and

"IGN" terminals on the HS780 ignition module. If 120 volts is present,
replace ignitor. If no, replace the 780 series module

PROBLEM #2 - IGNITOR GLOWS RED BUT MAIN BURNER

WOULDN'T LIGHT

Possible causes

A. Improper ignitor alignment

B. Faulty ignition control

C. Faulty gas valve

D. High inlet gas pressure

E. Polarity reversed

F. No earth ground

Solution

Step #1

Check for availability of gas at gas valve. Make sure the manual valve

upstream of the gas valve and the gas valve are in the full on position. Also

make sure gas is being supplied to the system at the proper pressure, too

high will lock-up the valve.

Step #2

Check proper polarity of "NEUT" and "120" on the ignition control by reversing

the wires, if reversed gas valve will not open. If this does not solve the

problem, replace wires as they were.

Step #3

Check for proper ignitor position.

Step #4

Check for a good earth ground by using a meter connected between L1

and furnace chassis. Should read 120 volts, if no, check and/or repair ignition
ground wire or ignition control mounting screws.
CAUTION POLARITY MUST BE OBSERVED

Step #5

Check for 24 volts at the gas valve terminals; "1" and "2" on a 7200 series,

"M" and "C" on a 7100 series, "TH" and "TR" on a 7000 series. If yes,

check wire integrity or change the gas valve. If no, change the 780 series
ignition module.

That is pretty much all of the troubleshooting required.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

What does the ignition coil do?


the ignition coil changes low voltage from the battery (12 volts) to high voltage (about 50,000 volts) to fire the spark plugs and ignite the fuel in the engine cylinders and drive the piston down

No 12 volts to ignition coil


on a lot of plymouth acclaims ,there is no fuse marked ignition. what I would do is check for voltage at the ignition switch. if no voltage is going thru it. then the ignition switch is bad. check the wires from switch, and turn key to accy,then check wire. then turn to run and record voltage.

I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW HOW TO HOOK UP THE RED AND YELLOW WIRES FROM A JVC KD-R400 CAR STEREO TO THE WIRING OF A 1999 PONTIAC MONTANA


The red should be ACC. Meaning it only supply 12 volts when the ignition is in the acc position or in the on position or when the car is running. It do not supply 12 volt if the ignition is off. The yellow wire is Battery(sometimes called B+). That means it has 12 volts at all times even the ignition is off. This wire is responsible for memory. Get a meter or a test light. Turn the ignition off and find which wires has 12 volts, you caonnect that to the yellow wire. Now turn the ignition key to ACC, and find the wire that has 12 volts, now turn the key off , the 12 volts should go away, You connect that to the red wire.

No Spark at plugs on my 2000 Honda Valkyrie GL1500 C (60,000 mi)


based on this, have you checked the ignition switch? these have multiple output wires on some bikes, and sometimes just one may fail, allowing the appearance of things lighting up, but no ignition. far as the voltage comment, you will never have over 12 volts until it is running (alternator must be turning). the 2.3 volts doesnt sound right though, but i cant be certain without study of the diagram. i would call that a clue. maybe it will help.
