Swapped hydraulic fan for a electric fan on a Dodge Ram srt 10 but I now have a engine light on dash and code p1499,any help

P1499 Open Or Shorted Condition Detected In The Hydraulic Cooling Fan Solenoid Control I think you could either reconnect the unused hydraulic solenoid and tie it up so that it is still working, therby closing the circuit, or solder in a 10 ohm 100 watt resistor per youtube vid from Martinbuilt - titled "Hydraulic to Electric Fan Conversion 01-04 Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.7L" at the 33 minute mark.

2006 Chevy Colorado i5 How to reset ABS, power loss, doors, faults.

Goodness, your keyboard is broken and needs replacing! No capitals, no spacing, all fixed :>) ABS https://www.google.com/search?q=2006+Chevy+Colorado+i5+How+to+reset+ABS All of your issues are well known and are due to battery voltage issues of a failing battery. Buy a new battery, charge it overnight. Clean the terminals and apply Vaseline Petroleum Jelly (it stops oxidization and is dielectric). Connect wires to the old battery or jump leads or the charger the battery clamps to maintain power during the swap over. Undo and lift off the clamps, clean them with a battery brush. Put Vaseline on them too. Lift the battery out of the tray and keep it close, making sure those wires don't drop off. Put the new battery in and tighten the clamps. https://www.coloradofans.com/threads/2006-colorado-problems-help.147441/ https://www.google.com/search?q=2006+Chevy+Colorado+i5+door+faults ..

Hi all, 2002 neon Wil not start. problem.

ever see the car run good before, or just died dead? out of the blue?> cranks ok or not. (grrrr grrrrr sound, or not)_ called cranking the crank shaft. fast. cranks starter motor fast and not starting? or never cranks the starter motor at all silent starter????? 2002 Dodge Neon, with secret motor under the hood. 2.0 liter engine, 132HP. or he 2.4L I an not guess engines ever SOHC or DOHC engine were there, both an OPTION./ VIN F or VIN C engine they are not the same. the twin cam engine DOHC is interference engine that must not be timed wrong ever. I'm told both are but my test is most strict ask. "Power on no 1 and 2 coil plug wires but none on no 3" does power mean HV spark or the primary side has power yes it does if fuse is not blown, all fuses good is first. ok , all. ASD sends 12vdc to the spark coils. "Looks like it is one tooth out on timing.( the cam belt wrong?) really? no engine PCM likes that, it can bend valves on some engines. never time a cam wrong .or boom happens. the non COP engine (1 coil pack) has just 1 coil pack with 4 HV terminals there is no spark timing at all, (is cmp + ckp)_ cam wrong wrecks cam time and spark both. CMP sensors and CKP sensors set spark timing, and are fixed in the case of crank. (the cam CMP sensor will be off if belt is timed wrong. WASTED SPARK if you replaced the 4 spark wires 1 by 1, there would be no mixup and spark would be good. Coil No. 1 fires cylinders 1 and 4. Coil No. 2 fires cylinders Nos. 2 and 3. if you mix up the 4 wires HV it will not run mixing 1 to 4 works, but the wires are too short mixing 2 and 3 works, same deal mixing 1 to 2 or 4 to 3 is FAIL see why> firing order wrong. PCM does the older not you. if you wreck the order it will not run. 4COPS can mix all you what so there I did both engines the cam belt is a 60,000 service, if skipped the DOHC blows up. piston hits valves and boom valves bent and heads a train wreck from H3LL. and compression not 200psi but 5. BOOM. never skip cam belt service, did you? did you drive it till it DIED? not told or just doing normal service now.? history matters, next time ask for help before going broke on part not needed btw the quad spark pack the best ones are marked clear as day 1,2,3,4 at HV terms and engine is cambelt 1,2,3,4 , trans. to test for spark only unplug 1 plug or get wrong results on 4 in 1 pack. the 4cop spark coils test them any why you want even all at once. always assume interference or go broke fast and some engine heads milled become interference and you can't know that standing far away 3 feet. there are some DOHC engines that are free running means cam stalled and crank spins and zero damage if you bought a dead car(my act for years) we check compression first not buy tons of parts praying for a dead engine to run. even engines on a pallet used. I test them. time the cam per the service manual if you'd tell what engine was there I'd post it. note the better coil pack to test # 2 or 3 both spark plugs 2 and 3 must be connected and shells ground to the engine block or both fail. and both spark wires can not be open, mag wire is best. this is called wasted spark and is only 2 coils if you look closer coil-undefined-undefined-0.jpg

2000 Lincoln Navigator AC clutch not engaging, (intermittent) fault.

this is super basic HVAC. what is a cycle switch ,under hood, the hi/low pressure switch use a volt meter, a $15 dmm set to and find the answer easy working with no service manual and that has the schematics. learn rule #1 the system wants to do self protection even the engine too hot cut the AC dead(via clutch) r134A REFRIGERANT TOO HIGH PRESSURE. (not wrecking the compressor or to low doing the same running it dry would be a train wreck. 2000 Lincoln Navigator I will now read to you the schematic and all fail points to dead clutch and yes clutches sure do fail, but if the pin on it is 12vcd and clutch dead then the clutch is bad. 0v on or say below 10v. is bad logic feeding, and not simple so I will not tell you all that now there are 9 pages on AC in the manual (wiring only) and some kind silly odd thing. called roof opening (sun roof?) I guess it shuts off if sun roof opened or its switch fibbing all are called permissives by me. let me run a list. 1: all fuse good the 10a and 40amp.and more for AC. 2: blower in dash works at least on high. 3: ok cycling switch means hi/low switch and below 23psi AC ends and above and pressure switch 2 closes a 260 PSI or less. 4: both switches PSI all 4 lugs 2x2 must be at 12vdc, or no AC possible ever, due wrong R134a pressures. (both or 1) 5:THE PCM runs the clutch via WOT relay (bad name) is PCM operators and 2 fuses. . this is the clutch RELAY +WOT !!! relay pin 3/ 5 are 12vdc or relay IS bad or PCM not happy on pin PIN1 (0V HAPPY 12V NO HAPPY THIS PIN) what makes PCM happy well the 2 pressure (R134a) are closed both and 12vdc sent to PCM the PC will cut the relay off line do WOT event. (wide open throttle.) for passing a logging truck(my lil;' joke there) i have no ideal how open roof works. the PCm may stop AC IF ENGINE GETS TOO HOT. OR IS IN SOME LIMPHOME MODE CEL GLOWING. CHECK ALL PINS ON THE 2 pressure switches then pin 4 of WOT relay 12v and pin 1 is 0vdc. PCM happy pin.coil pin,. the clutch now has 12vdc from pin 4 above and energizes. these simple tests find the problem or we just learn PCM is not happy and work that if true. using $15 voltmeter. easy when I say 12vdc it means 13.3 to 15vdc, gen volts that is. schemo 1 12vdc top or fuse blown. ac1-undefined-undefined-0_0.jpg 2 more fuses both 12vdc out. see this WOT relay, pin 5 is 12vdc if not clutch dead. bottom right. see my 0v below that is the PCM AC happy pin, 0v means happy and the clutch slams HOME fast. and hard. ac2-undefined-undefined-1_0.jpg ac2-undefined-undefined-2_0.jpg this is the start and end if PCM is happy just 2 drawing of 9 shows what to do to find cause. the WOT RELAY CAN BE JUST BAD OR INTERMITTENT. ONE CAN PULL THE RELAY AND JUMPER 3 TO 4 AND HOTWIRE THE CLUTCH (SHORT TIME PROVING IT WORKS)_ IF R134 IS LOW DO NOT HOT WIRE ANY CLUTCH. USE A PRESSURE GAUGE ON THE LOW SIDE PORT. The low side pressure at 100f outside, is about 40 to 80psi low side, psi. full blast, fresh air doors open , full cold full blow. low-undefined-undefined-5.jpg low-undefined-undefined-3.jpg low-undefined-undefined-4.jpg I make no claims to know all things that can make PCM unhappy.for AC, but blower dead, engine overheating. hi and lo R134a switch open. WOT cuts AC on huge hills.full throttle. Check engine light may. (no sure, but some cars yes)) and sure all fuses good.

Is there a particular fuse for the instrument cluster in a 2004 Silverado? The whole cluster stopped showing anything

There are a few different fuses for the instrument cluster, plus grounds. Hooking up a professional scan tool an checking for diagnostic trouble codes would be the first place to start, does the instrument cluster communicate with a scan tool ? If you don't know what I'm talking about you need to take to a qualified repair shop.

Have a 2003 Chrysler 300M. Just had the blower and resister replaced but it won't stop and won't turn off and the speed control doesn't work

Q0; BLOWS KEY ON OR OFF OR BOTH????????? WOW KEY FACT (NO PUN) Q1; CAR DRIVES OK,, STARTS AND RUNS. Q2 Head lights bright, key off and on? Q3: car option (automatic temp control head) here?ATCH "no" manual HVAC, HAS RESISTOR BLOCK , so BINGO 3 MTCH IS IT. Q4 No shop service manual, (blind?) dash heater blower stuck (AC on or off) the resistor only causes dead speeds of blower not stuck on. HVAC speed control dead (blower speed) ok I will answer for blower only. all tests, and cures. do you own a voltmeter (DMM) and scan tool? On this car the PCM controls and ATCH if there. AND BCM
  1. all fuses good, skip one,
  2. remove battery log minus (-) for 1 hour and put it back (resets)
  3. OBD2 (USA?) scan tool , will tell you what is wrong if you do.
  4. fues23 & 17 MUST BE GOOD TO MTCH
  5. the MTCH runs the blower, the resistor only lowers the speeds.
  6. THE BCM HAS a high blower output pin the over rides the MTCH. below schem. BCM runs blind doors too,. hvac.
  7. BCM has sun sensor if it read too hot blower is set on.
  8. AC MODE SWITCH BAD , TO BCM TELLING IT TO BLOW. THIS IS PART OF MTCH.
  9. Besides, step 1 and 2 it nut be scanned
  10. one can use voltmeter to see if BCM inputs are wrong but lacking the service manual below, that be impossible.
MTCH, MANUAL TEMP CONTROL HEAD. mtch-undefined-undefined-0.jpg bcm-undefined-undefined-1.jpg bcm-undefined-undefined-2.jpg sun-undefined-undefined-4.jpg sun-undefined-undefined-5.jpg sun-undefined-undefined-3.jpg

How far can I drive my 2013 Dodge Avenger with broken shift cable

Since it is broken, then you cannot use all the gears. Are you stuck in drive? Can you shift at all? Can you shift sometimes or not. Is it broken or just loose at the connections? The best idea would have a mechanic look at it asap before you get to a place where you are stuck and need a tow. Keep your phone handy.

I have a 04 infiniti g35 sedan when i turn the key to on my fans kick on for the radiator

Keep looking for shorts- that's causing the fuse to blow. Probably causing other problems too. Its unusual for a car to have so many electrical shorts unless someone has messed with the wiring.
