    You should have an entity called Dig One, or something similar that can trace the wire for you. They will come out to make sure no telephone lines, or gas lines will be dug up, and will mark where they exist. If not perhaps a metal detector may be available for rent.

How to Replace a p1355 on a 2000 volkswagen new beetle


Is this for a ignition coil output stage open circuit? If so you need to rerun the ground wire. Just but the wire close enough to the coil that you can still get to the wire and splice another wire to it. Just splice a wire to the brown wire and run the rest of the wire to a ground lug under the battery. You will need to remove the battery and the tray. Also when you hook the battery back up make sure the key is on. This will reset alarm and radio. Remember, you are grounding the coil so the wire should go from the coil to ground. Hope this helps

Just got 84 lasharo rv ac blower dont work cant find fuze


If a GM chassis and problem is dash air, remove the power wire from blower (under hood) & apply 12 volts directly in order to confirm blower even works. Next, pull blower relay harness & check for arcing/burnt wires & contacts (usually the culprit this year GM). If good, trace wire to relay and check for 12 volts at relay (be sure to use a test light) and do this across the ground and power wires to relay and, relay to blower. Bad grounds and burnt contacts on relays are more of a problem than fuses during these years.

1996 gmc Sierra- turn key and no noise under hood. New relay


WHAT RELAY? THE ONE IN THE UNDER HOOD FUSE BOX?...HOW DID YOU DETERMINE IT WAS BAD?...RELAYS IN MY VAST EXPERIENCE DO NOT FAIL OFTEN!
CHECK FOR 12 VOLTS AT HOT LEAD ON STARTER (THE LARGER WIRE USUALLY RED) GROUND BLACK LEAD TO STARTER BODY OR HOLD ON BOLT IF USING A TEST LIGHT OR MULTI- METER. IF NOT 12 V AT LEAST, YOU BACK UP ...TRACE WIRING, RIGHT BACK TO THE IGNITION SWITCH. BE SURE TO CHECK THAT ALL GROUND WIRES IN SERIES IS CLEAN AND TIGHT AS WELL. NO NOISE....MEANS NO STARTER ENERGIZATION!....FIRST PLACE TO CHECK!
***TRICK FOR YOU: TAP ON SIDE OF STarter body and car may crank over....it isCALLED "the magic hammer trick!

My trunk lights won't work and I see 12 volts on the hot and ground wires


You should only have 12V on the hot side. If you have a state of 12v on both hot and ground, then you have no way for the current to flow thru the bulb. You need to trace down the circuit and find out what is responsible for turning them on and closing the circuit to ground. My guess is your switch on your dash that controls your interior lights. Trace that circuit down and you will find your problem. Good Luck!!

Why wont my instument lights work i have new bulbs and fuses under dash is good... 1993 dodge dakota


Yes as said earlierthe dimmer can be turned down. secondly check for the ground connection of the dash circuit. Test using a multimeter /voltmeter for the +12 or use a dash lamp with one side grounded as the test lamp to trace the missing +12.

I have 2 cigarette lighters in my 2000 mustang and neither one of them work. I looked at the fuses underneath the drivers side and under the hood and none seem to be blown. any ideas?


you can check with a volt meter and see if you in fact have 12 volts going to the cigarette lighters. if there is no voltage there you can trace the wires from the lighters and see where on the fuse box they are connected to and see if they were just wired wrong. could also be a bad ground wire or a disconnected ground wire. I have seen some cars that someone has installed a new radio or something and cut the main ground wire to these accessories by accident. again, trace the wires out and this should tell you what is going on. you can also run your own hot and ground wire to the lighters and fuse them to a spare fuse at the box. I hope this helps.

Horn switch is not getting power, 1994 Buick Park Ave Ultra


Have you checked the fuses? ON a buick, under the steering column there will be a set of wires. When depressing on the horm there will be 12 volt ground to the black wire. The black wire is the wire that goes to the horn relay. If you can trace ground through the wire to the relay, then the problem could be your relay. You can also put +12 volt to the horn to be sure the horn is good. If the horn sounds when putting a +12 volts the the problem again could be the relay.
