Rocawear oversized change battery
Here are some steps you can follow to replace the battery:
Remove the Back Cover:
Turn the watch over to access the back cover.
Use a small screwdriver or a case knife to gently pry open the back cover. Be careful not to scratch the watch or damage the gasket.
Identify the Battery Type:
Once the back cover is off, locate the battery. It should be a small, round disc.
Note down the battery type (usually a number like CR2032 or SR626SW). You can find a CR2032 at Walmart.
Remove the Old Battery:
Use a pair of non-metal tweezers or a plastic tool to carefully lift out the old battery.
Pay attention to the battery's orientation (positive and negative sides).
Insert the New Battery:
Place the new battery in the same orientation as the old one.
Press it down gently to ensure proper contact.
Replace the Back Cover:
Align the back cover with the watch case.
Press it firmly until it clicks into place.
Test the Watch:
Set the time and check if the watch is working properly.
If you're unsure or uncomfortable doing this yourself, consider taking your watch to a professional watch repair shop. They can replace the battery for you safely and efficiently.
Additionally, if you prefer professional assistance, you can reach out to Total Watch Repair. They offer Rocawear battery replacement services for $9.95. Expect good customer service.
My man truck showing a faulty code INST 02987-03
This code could be a possible issue with your Tachgraph not recognising the vehicle. Get a Specialist to look at as soon as possible
(( 02987 Chassis number in the tachograph or ZBR2 parameters do not fit to the car. Priority 1: Requires stopping the engine. Fault: 3. Unacceptable)).
How do you remove the passenger side kick panel on a 2010 Buick Lucerne?
There is no ECM behind the right passenger kick panel, where do you get your info. from Don?
This vehicle has a PCM - powertrain control module, controls transmission an engine function. And it's located -Powertrain Control Module (PCM) (LZ9/LGD)
Front left side of the engine compartment, inside the air cleaner housing And if Engine Control Module (ECM) (LD8/L37)
Front left side of the engine compartment, inside the air cleaner housing
it does have a ECM - it's located in the same place.
There is no computer - control module behind the right kick panel .
Conventional power pack
A primary and secondary usually refers to a transformer. The primary side being the input side 110 AC Volt or 220 Volt AC side. Also called Source.
The Secondary being the "output to load" side 12 Volts "for example". And also called Tap (Secondary Tap)
The voltage is changed by conduction, magnetic flux, neither side touching one another. And the number of turns of wire, per side, determine the voltage. The voltage may either be a step-down or Step-up depending on its use.
An unconventional method is to have both the primary & secondary combined into a single tapped winding - which arrangement is called an autotransformer. The autotransformer does not provide isolation between primary and secondary circuits but its simplicity makes it economical and space-saving.
Imagine a single wire wrapped from the top to the bottom being the primary, and tapping in. in the middle and bottom for the secondary, so the output becomes 1/2. That would be a step-down transformer.
The actual measurement of a transformer is measured by its efficiency (Faraday Law) which is defined as a ratio of power. I hope that's sufficient, but if you want more I would buy for $2 bucks an Electricity Made Simple Book, because there are pages after pages to write about transformers, and to understand electricity in general it is helpful to understand the difference between alternating current and direct current and its magnetic field of induction and magnitude of emf.
2006 Audi A8 EPC and check engine light.
Let's break down the situation:
The EPC light typically comes on when there's a problem with engine sensors or components. It might be related to the throttle sensor or the temperature sensor.
When the EPC light activates, the engine electronics may limit power and maximum RPM. As a result, the computer might restrict the engine's performance, allowing you to drive at low speeds only.
Check Engine Light:
The Check Engine light illuminates when the engine management system detects a fault or error.
The codes you've provided indicate specific issues:
Code 17950/P1542/005442: Angle sensor 1 for Throttle Actuator (G187) has an implausible signal.
Code 16891/P0507/001287: Idle Control System RPM is higher than expected.
Possible Causes and Solutions:
Fuel System Issues: Given the fault codes related to fuel pressure, it's essential to check the fuel system. Low fuel pressure could cause hesitation and trigger both lights.
Mass Airflow Sensor (MAF): A faulty MAF sensor can lead to engine hesitation, rough idling, and stalling. Consider inspecting or replacing the MAF sensor.
Throttle Body: Although the dealer replaced the throttle body earlier, it's worth verifying its functionality again.
Idle Control System: The high RPM issue might be related to the idle control system. Inspect the idle control valve and related components.
Wiring and Connections: Check for loose or damaged wiring, connectors, and vacuum lines.
Diagnostic Scan: Perform a thorough diagnostic scan to identify any additional fault codes.
Visual Inspection: Inspect the throttle body, angle sensor, and wiring connections.
Fuel Pressure Test: Verify fuel pressure using a fuel pressure gauge.
MAF Sensor: Consider cleaning or replacing the MAF sensor.
Idle Control Valve: Inspect the idle control valve for proper operation.
Remember that intermittent issues can be challenging to diagnose. If the problem persists, consult a qualified mechanic or an Audi specialist to pinpoint the exact cause and address it effectively.
Code B1650 2013 Toyota Prius
This code refers to the front passenger airbag. There is a fault in the that part of the system so you will need to get a airbag specialist to look at it as soon as you can. Remember this is a safety feature on the vehicle so DON'T ignore it.
