J/l 500/1 amp

I bought this amp and man when it was working; it was the best amp i ever owned. this past week it started cutting in an out. i looked at the amp and the green power light was cutting in and out. i figured with the bass the wires might be coming loose. i un hooked all the wires and reconnected them. it seemed to work, but then started to repeat and when it did; this would become a regular problem... what should i do, i hate factory sound.

I'd lay you odds that you are driving the wrong speaker impedence and that you may have damaged the amp. This is most often true when you improperly bridge into the wrong load. If you are lucky enough to not have damaged the unit then you need to get your speaker load right at once before you fry it, if you do indeed have the wrong speaker load (too much).

Bought 2012 Fiat 500 Pop that has front end damage. Key stuck.

To remove the key, you take off the steering wheel covers. Underneath, there is a red tab to push in. Push in the red tab and remove key. Fuel cut off is your next problem. You use your directionals to reset the airbag module to turn on fuel. The procedure is listed in the owners manual under " in case of accident"

Well you have a car that is worth at best 500 dollars, with a working instrument cluster and gauges it is still worth 500 dollars. How much are you going to spend to fix it? Not much. Look on eBay and craigslist for someone selling a 91 voyager off part by part and buy a replacement cluster for 10 bucks.
Junkyards, aka auto recyclers, also sell old car parts, look in the phone book and call around and ask if they have one of those sitting in their lot. Go buy the part and look around for someone who can replace yours with the one you bought. Would not hurt to buy a 5 dollar CD repair manual on eBay and see how difficult it is to pull the cluster out yourself, could be something is disconnected that you could see and fix yourself. Every part on every car ever made is going to fail due to age or use, yours has already made it 10 years past its design lifetime.

Check the belt to see if its broken
or off the Drum or Idler Pulley.
If the belt is in place
(there is usually a mark on the drum where it should go)
then I would call the place where I bought it,since it's new, & tell them to fix it or you will call:
The Better Business Breau & Sears Headquarters.
I'd give them at least a week to make it right....log everything that you do.
Good luck,

I need a replacement bulb for a Vector VEC139BW 3 million candlepower spotlight. Can any one tell me where I can get one.

I just bought 3 from "The Bulb Man" 2207 Elmwood Ave. Buffalo, N.Y. 14216 (716) 875-2852. He had to order, they came in in about a week. They work fine but bulb has no blue tint, I'm starting to look for the area light when I found this. Bulb, base & wire is all one piece. I think I paid $12-14 for all three a few weeks ago.
