For this to happens in a globe of any sort the voltage has to be varying up and down. So something is causing that in the wiring. Either the voltage regulator in your generator is at fault, or there is a bad ground connection which is making and breaking contact, possibly at either end of the battery ground strap.

You can check all the ground strap connections by wiggling them and tightening the bolts. You need instruments to check the voltage regulator, so you may have to visit an auto electrician.

    Check the charging sysytem especially the alternator brushes and fuse box for loose connection or battery terminals for sulphate build up

SOURCE: 2002 sequioa sudden stall

Often when the battery is disconnected or replaced the computer will lose it's learned idle settings. You could try letting the engine idle in park until the engine temperature comes up to normal and leave it like that for a few minutes, then put the Air con on and let it idle again for a few minutes, then switch the air con off and put it into drive. If it does not stall, let it idle in drive for 2 minutes or so, and then do the same with the Air con on. This should relearn the base idle settings and stop it from stalling on you. Before you carry out this procedure you should make sure that when you replaced the battery you didn't remove any other plugs or knocked anything that may be causing the fault. If you try this procedure and it still stall when you select drive, you will need to get a Mechanic to check the vehicle over.

Hope this helps,

SOURCE: 2001 Toyota corolla LE: Driver side power window problems

The motor is burned out, likely due to heavily worn brushes inside. As the motor cools (from lack of use) it becomes usable again, but quickly heats up and seizes with use.

You will need to replace the window motor. If you are mechanically inclined it is not a difficult job.

The door panel needs to be removed (numerous philips screws and push fasteners), then there are two 10mm bolts holding the glass to the regulator. Support the glass in the upward position with tape or suction cup supporting devices.

Disconnect the power to the motor and unbolt the regulator from the door (about 5 10mm bolts), then slide the regulator and motor assembly out the door opening.
If you purchased a complete regulator/motor (typical aftermarket), simply install the new one in reverse order.
If you purchased just the motor (typical OEM), you will need to unbolt the motor from the regulator. Becautious as the regulator is spring loaded and will snap open once the motor separates. Install the new motor with the regulator in the same position as before disassembly, and reinstall into the vehicle.

SOURCE: on a cold start, engine misfires, hesitates, after

hi, is your car petrol or diesel.

If its diesel then the chances are the glow plugs need replacing if the car runs fine and starts fine when its up to temperature then this would point to glow plugs being at fault.

If how ever yours is petrol then it could be that the automatic choke needs replacing so this would need checking problem with this is you need a mechanic to look at it as its very difficult to check for any problems.

One thing you can do if its petrol engine is go and buy a fuel line cleaner this you pour into the petrol tank then give the car a good run this will then clean all the fuel lines out and all the injectors ensuring their is no muck causing the problem your having.
It could also be that you car needs a good service if its petrol then all the plugs and leads need checking and also the distributer if their is any corrosion in their then the chances are it needs replacing as it might be the seal thats gone causing it to get damp giving you the problem your having then as the engine warms up it evaperates the dampness then you car runs ok so all this needs checking.

It may be worth changing fuel/air filter etc if this hasnt been done recently.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

SOURCE: 2003 Prius Hybrid System Warning Light

My Toyota Prius hybrid warning light has come on three times in eight years. If I turn the car off for 20 minutes, the hybrid light is off but the check engine light is on. After a while, the check engine light goes off. I think this problem is related to moisture somehow entering the hybrid vent on the driver's side. All three times this has happened, the weather was wet. Kevin Cardiff

99 4 runner v6 The engine pulsates at idle and during acceleration ,It goes up and down about 100 RPM and you can feel it under acceleration. what could be the cause?

If this a petrol engine, you have an air leak some where on the intake manifold. Test with soapy water and a paint brush whilst engine is running at idle. check all connections to the manifold and when soapy water gets sucked away, you have identified your leak. Start with the air cleaner and work along system back to the manifold.

I'd remove the thermostat and run it. If the problem continues, it could be head gaskets, but, v6 head gaskets rarely fail. Also make sure that teh rad cap is good; have it pressure tested.

So other possible faults you may want to look at include: light control switch, headlight dimmer switch, and of course your bulbs if you haven't done so.
