This is for the Playskool Express toy train engine.

There seems to be calcification where the battery goes in. The engine will not work with new batteries. What do I do?

I see you say 'calcification' Judy, so a white residue from a leaking battery? Scrape the white scale off with the point of a small paring knife. Then you can use a green pot scourer to remove the rest and make the metal shiny. An old typewriter eraser also works well, the sandy, gritty type, or even an emery board for the nails. Then clean with a damp cloth and then rub or with a little Vaseline. This will stop further corrosion. Then put the batteries in and try again.

Why is there a knocking sound from the top of the engine?

disable each cylinder one at a time. If the noise goes away it is likely a rod knock and is terminal. A new engine is the only way to resolve. If it does not go away than it is possible it is a wrist pin, also terminal, or in the valve train.

if you think it could be in the valve train try this. Add 1/2 can of seafoam motor tune to the oil. Start the car and let it run. If the noise goes away it was a valve train issue. change the oil and make sure you are keeping up with the proper maintenance for you vehicle.

if the noise continues than i would seek a professional ear to listen to eat and give an opinion.

Security light on and van keeps cutting off

The security light comes on or stays on when the module does not "see" the correct chip in the key.
Normally the system only works when you crank the engine, not after it is running. So if the light is coming on after the engine is running, and the engine also quits, I would look for an electrical problem with the key switch or the computer.

No power and speedometer swings between 0 and 90 mph while van is barely moving

Hello
The engine and transmission in this cars drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant teperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL THE DIAGNOSIS & TESTING IS COMPLETED.

My 97 GMC Drivers window goes down but not up. If it turn the power on and off it will roll up, however when it goes down the "auto" kicks and and wont stop. When it reaches the bottom the...

With some makes and models, there is an auto down module for express down, it can be part of the driver door master switch.
With express down, when the window gets to the bottom, the module may sense over current, then interrupts voltage.
On some vehicles that had problems with window motor, I have touched power window circuit breaker, this one was metal, hot as it could be. The circuit breaker will trip when it gets hot and none of your powers will work. Once the circuit breaker cools down, it may reset and the windows will work again.
If you bench tested the new window motor on the bench, with jumper wires to battery, It will probably run as long as the jumper wires are hooked up, nothing to shut the voltage off. Just my opinion.
