'02 Taurus SES Headlights and Hi Beams not working, Hi beams work w/ momentary lever pulled back


There is no relay for the headlamps on your Taurus . The lamps have constant B+ voltage , the fuses supply B+ right to the headlamps . The Voltage then travels to the dimmer an flash to pass switch on the steering column , then to the headlamp switch . When you turn on the headlamps the B+ voltage then goes to ground through the headlamp switch ! Pull the headlamp switch an test for B+ voltage on the red with yellow stripe wire . If you do your switch is bad . Go to www.bbbind.com/ for free wiring diagrams , then go to youtube an check out videos on headlamp not working trouble shooting ! From practical experience I'd say there is a problem with the headlamp switch , but don't guess test !

What causes my 1996 toyota corolla headlamps stay on constantly even when you turn them off at the switch?


It seems like you have a bad switch. Are any of the other lights on? you may also have a short feeding the power to the headlamps. Need to check.

Sva monitor model 2400w-bd. have two set up and one keeps going to a black screen after a few min of being on. turn power off and turn back on and screen returns. this is a constant and very annoying...


Your monitor is suffering an overheat condition due to the switcher internally working too hard and overheating, shutting down the switching supply. Replace the electrolytic caps on the board with new low esr ones and you should see this problem go away.

Headlight problem with my 2000 Corvette. Sometimes when I start the car both headlights pop up and turn on and the switch will not turn them off. I have to turn the engine off and turn the light swith on...


Do you know how to test automotive electrical circuits ?
When the headlamp switch is turned to the HEAD position, battery voltage is applied to the headlamp opening door actuator control module through CKT 103. The LH head lamp door opens when battery voltage is applied to the LH headlamp opening door assembly through CKT 576 and ground is applied to CKT 577. The RH headlamp door opens when battery voltage is applied to the RH headlamp opening door assembly through CKT 578 and ground is applied to CKT 579. When the headlamp switch is moved to the OFF position, battery voltage is applied to the headlamp opening door actuator control module through CKT 306. The LH headlamp door closes when battery voltage is applied to the LH headlamp opening door assembly through CKT 577 and ground is applied to CKT 576. The RH headlamp door closes when battery voltage is applied to the RH headlamp opening door assembly through CKT 579 and ground is applied to CKT 578. Battery voltage is constantly applied to the headlamp opening door actuator control module from the HDLP MOT L MiniFuse® #4 (CKT 2940) and from the HDLP MOT R, MiniFuse #3 (CKT 3040). The headlamp opening door actuator control module is grounded by CKT 150 through Splice Pack #100 to G102.

Headlamp Doors Do Not Close
Install a scan tool and go to the BCM input display.
Monitor the headlamp off switch status.
Turn the headlamps on and off.
Does the scan tool indicate the headlamp off switch inactive and active?

YES - Go to Step 4
NO - Go to Step 6
4
Disconnect the headlamp opening door actuator control module connector C1.
Connect a DMM from connector C1 terminal D to ground.
Measure resistance to ground of circuit 150.
Is resistance within the specified values?
0-2 ohms
YES - Go to Step 5
NO - Go to Step 9
5
Connect a test light from the headlamp opening door actuator control module connector C1 terminal C to ground.
Turn the headlamp switch off.
Does the test light illuminate?

Can't open up to replace battery on headlamp


aspen643-

Look for a slot on the top. There will be a gray tab in it that must be pushed in while gently prying apart the two halves of the headlamp.

Hope this helps.

My Samsung BD-P1500 got stuck after a firmware upgrade.


Although my BD-P1500 can eject the discs, it stopped reading the discs a couple of months ago. I did this: take off the top casing by removing the 3 back screws and 2 side screws. You need to slide it back about an inch and then pry it up. Then plug the drive back in (being careful what you touch now). Turn it on and try giving the disc a nudge with your finger to see if it will start to spin up. Mine did, and then could play Blu-ray or DVD discs. The problem recurs between discs or turning the machine off, so I'm going to cut a hole so I can nudge it with a Q-tip or something.

Fluttering humidity reading


Hi,
I would return it as it sounds like part of the circuit is defective.
Anything like this should have built-in Historesis - so it will wait untill a limit is reached before turning on, but also turn off at a lower limit to prevent this wasteful short-cycling.

Incompatible Disc in Sharp BD-HP21X Blu-Ray Disc Player


I had the exact same problem as you did... I bought the Sharp Aquos 42D85X which came with Sharp BD-HP21X Blu-ray Disc player. could not get brand new blu-ray movies to play and i found it froze everytime after 10 secs. I phoned sharp who basically were no help watsoever! I then went and returned my blu-ray movies back to the store thinking it was a problem with the discs.. The people there were extremely nice and since they had a display model of the BD-HP21X instore they offered to test the movie on it to veroify whether it was the blu-ray player was the problem or not. Turns out its a fault with all of the BD-HP21X models. So we then ended up returning it back to the store we bought it and exchanged it with the older model (BD-HP20X). I now have no problems playing blu-ray movies. Although another suggestion is to perhaps download the lastest firmware update & see if that resolves your issues.
