This is a hard one to explain but I will try. First it would be better to know what the problem is the most common is one switch works as a three way only if the other switch is on. If that is the case then most likely the travelers are crossed and on one switch the wires can be reversed. Basically this is the way it works in one switch box you have the hot from the source (panel) a neutral and two travelers. The hot goes to the black screw on the three way switch and each traveler go to the gold screws. neutral is tied together in box. From that switch box the travelers and the neutral go to the second switch box. In that switch box the travelers once again go to the gold screws and now a new wire from the black screw on the switch and the neutral go to the light fixture and wire as normally. That is the general idea. As to the route the wires get to each location when originally installed is open to many different options. I hope this made some sense

I have a 1992 Buick roadmaster while I'm driving my lights, gauges, and radio lights start coming out and then they will come back but it always repeat itself wat do I do and how do I do it

You either have a short in the wiring, a loose connection to the headlight switch or a bad headlight switch. I would check the wires going into the switch first to be sure one is not loose and then I would change the headlight switch.

I got a good deal on a 10" porter cable table

If its just the on/off switch. The black wire from the 110Vac power supply goes to one side of the switch. The black wire from the motor goes to the other side of the switch. The remaining 2 white wires go together.( One from the powers supply the other from the motor)

Driver window not working Best wat to diagnose this problem ( ie switch pack or motor bad ??? )

It would most likely be the switch. Remove the switch pack and locate the switch of the window in question. Locate the live wire and bridge it to one of the other wires. If the window moves, the switch is faulty. If it does not move, it could be the motor or the wiring to the motor.

What did they do????

this most likely was a remote ON/OFF for the amplifiers, sometimes it is easier to do than locating the remote wire on the dash unit.

My hedge trimmer keeps switching off

It sounds like you may have a loose wire some where that is grounding out. You might want to check all wire connections to make sure that they are tight and also check for any bare spots in the wires were they could be touching metal and grounding its self out.

Need to buy a remote for my Vm9021ts

For your first question. You need to ground the parking wire. I wouldn't bet money on it but I think it is either a pink or a green wire. You just need to figure out which one is the parking wire and ground it. You can go even further and hide a switch so that if the pigs see you, you can flip a switch and they won't know.
I hope this helped.
