The engine wire harness has been cut in multiple places and has wires that go no where. And I don't know what wires are for my amps gauge in the truck that doesn't work.

You need to buy a used Factory Helm wiring manual from E-Bay
or somewhere

The repair shop data bases such as Alldata doesn't go back that far
nor does Helm.Com

Unless you get an old factory manual ,you will have a worthless manual

No Haynes or Chilton will be your exact car

1997 grand prix window won't work

Do you need a new motor

How would someone know that?

You need a wiring diagram or at least
match up the cut wires,solder & heat shrink them

Then diagnose the motor,switches,etc

I buy factory wiring diagrams for all my vehicles
I never approach the vehicle without them
One quick check of what does work,then into
the wiring manual

You can not repair something you know nothing about,
need reference material

Helm.Com ---for manuals & lots of money

I would do the following
  • First test to make sure the computer is really booting up. Hook up an external monitor and toggle the display by pressing (in most cases with laptops [fn + F7], or look for a key that says LCD/ or a pic of a monitor)
  • If you get a picture on the screen then almost certainly your actual screen is bad
  • If it still doesn't work, with monitor hooked up reboot the machine
  • If it still has no display then your motherboard is most likely bad
  • If you can see a very very faint display on the computer then it is most likely the inverter board
In ranking order of difficulty to repair from easiest to hardest Inverter, motherboard, screen All repairs I would rank 7 or higher out of 10. All cost from most repair shops several hundred dollars
If you have a warranty great! If not you can try and find someone cheap like myself to repair it :) or just buy a new computer.
Comment if you need further assistance

Your LCD display is out of order. You can try to find one new on eBay. Chinese brand is cheaper, but VDO is better. After buying the LCD display you will need to install it.
See this link as an example of a new LCD display installation in the instrument cluster.

Display does not light up

This is problem many of hp cp1700 printers. LCD display have manufacter issuse. After some time degrage material joins LCD with controler. You can partial fix this issue, but you must take to parts front panel and repair cable contact on both side of plastic flat wire
(one side plastic flat wire and LCD, two side plastic flat and LCD controler board ). Repair must be done with stress dull tip and hot temperature, may use tinfioil and soldering iron.
OR you can bay new part panel board with lcd aproximaly 150$.
OR you do not repair printer and use pc program that view display info form printer display on pc monitor. On Linux I use HPLIP Toolbox.

Lcd cabel

On Your Laptop???? How could hey possibly have cut your LCD CAble??

well either way, yes it is repairable/replaceable
look on ebay, match up your model of laptop with the lcd display cable

unless you're posting in the wrong section and this is a desktop pc....
then you are pretty much out of luck, not too many people repair Monitor Display cables, as they are wired directly into the internal power supply..

The LCD Display on the Sharp R-230KK microwave has a problem. It is missing the readout for the center of the display so all numbers are unreadable

We repair these for $39.95, but a new oven of this model runs about twice that...

So if you or someone you know wants to clean the LCD glass, circuit board and rubber connector, that usually fixes it.

If not, then I would get a new LCD and rubber connector. The best place to order Sharp parts is Tritronics.

We have the service manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.

You will need the free Acrobat Reader to view or print it in case you don't have it already.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
