Wiring of serial port for video device connection

Trying to replace the serial connector on the wire that connect the foot pedals to the steering wheel for an XBox game. My boy cut off the old 9-pin connector and I picked up another one at Radio Shack, however, I'm not sure where the 4 (red, green, white, and black) wires go in the 9-pin connector. It appears that looking inside the steering device (as much as I could do), that there are four wires connecting to the four ports on the 9-pin and maybe one more wire connecting to the one of the 5-pin side of the connector. I don't know if this helps, however, thought I would share it. Thank you.

My cloth door sensor is not working Bernette 334SD . Light works, not the pedal, both doors are closed.

If the light on your Bernette 334SD sewing machine is working but the cloth door sensor (also called the foot controller) is not, there are a few things you can try:
  1. Check the connection: Make sure the foot controller is properly plugged into the machine. If it is loose or not fully plugged in, it may not work.
  2. Check the pedal switch: The pedal switch may be stuck or broken. Try gently pressing on the switch to see if it moves freely. If it is stuck, you may need to take your machine to a repair shop to have it fixed.
  3. Check the wiring: The wiring between the foot controller and the machine may be damaged or broken. Carefully inspect the wiring for any signs of damage or wear. If you find any, you may need to replace the foot controller or have it repaired.
  4. Contact customer support: If you have tried these steps and your foot controller is still not working, you may need to contact Bernette customer support for further assistance.

Envision 9008 won't run except for bobbin winding

If the motor has been replaced and the Envision 9008 sewing machine is still not running except for bobbin winding, there may be a problem with the wiring or other components of the machine. Here are a few things you can try:
  1. Check the wiring: Make sure that all the wires are properly connected and there are no loose connections. Check the wiring diagram in the machine manual to ensure that everything is properly connected.
  2. Check the foot pedal: Make sure that the foot pedal is functioning properly. If the foot pedal is faulty, it may prevent the machine from running. You can test the foot pedal by using a multimeter to check for continuity.
  3. Check the power source: Make sure that the machine is properly plugged in and that the outlet is working. Try plugging in the machine to a different outlet or using a different power cord.
  4. Check the machine settings: Make sure that the machine is set up correctly. Check the stitch selector and tension settings to ensure that they are correct for the type of fabric and thread being used.
If none of these steps resolves the issue, it may be best to take the machine to a qualified technician for further diagnosis and repair.

My trolling motor- 2007 70# Minnkota Powerdrive V2 seems to lose track of where it's at. I replaced both control boards and it still wanders off.

If you have already replaced the control boards and the trolling motor still seems to lose track of its location, there are a few other things you can check:
  1. The propeller may be damaged or bent, causing it to steer off course. Inspect the propeller for any visible damage and replace it if necessary.
  2. The motor's GPS sensor may not be functioning properly. Check to make sure the sensor is clean and free of debris. You can also try recalibrating the sensor according to the manufacturer's instructions.
  3. The wiring connections may be loose or corroded, causing intermittent power to the motor. Check all wiring connections for tightness and signs of corrosion, and clean or replace as necessary.
  4. The foot pedal or remote control may be malfunctioning, causing the motor to steer off course. Check the foot pedal or remote control for any damage or loose connections, and replace or repair as necessary.
If none of these steps resolve the issue, you may need to take your trolling motor to a professional repair shop for further diagnosis and repair.

2003 ford explorer is stuck in park, the brake lights are on so i dont think it is something to do with the brake

FORD: 2002-2005 Explorer, Mountaineer ISSUE: Some 2002-2005 Explorer 4dr/Mountaineer vehicles, may require a greater effort to move the gear selector lever (shift lever) from drive to park. This may be due to a time delay with the brake shift interlock (BSI) pin retraction.
ACTION: To service, replace the BSI switch. Refer to the following Service Procedure.
  1. Remove the two (2) fasteners supporting the instrument panel knee bolster from below the steering column and remove the cover (Figure 1).

    Figure 1 - Article 04-22-12

  2. Remove the three (3) fasteners supporting the steering column lower shroud and remove the cover (Figure 2).

    Figure 2 - Article 04-22-12

  3. Remove the three (3) wiring bundle carrier fasteners from the bottom of the steering column to allow movement while removing the BSI switch. It may be necessary to release the connectors from the multifunction switch (Figure 3).

    Figure 3 - Article 04-22-12

  4. Remove the BSI fasteners (T-30 on the side and T-20 on the bottom) (Figure 4).

    Figure 4 - Article 04-22-12

  5. Pull the BSI tab on the bottom of the column downward to help free the BSI from the column housing.
  6. Break the two (2) side tabs off the BSI by the white wiring connector (Figure 5).

    Figure 5 - Article 04-22-12

  7. Push the locking tab on the white connector towards the wiring to release the connector from the BSI. Be careful not to damage the connector or wiring. If the connector does not free easily, a very small flat screwdriver may be used to help lift the locking tab (Figure 6).

    Figure 6 - Article 04-22-12

  8. Connect the wiring to the new BSI. Ensure all clips are fully engaged to prevent the connector from pulling free.
  9. Reinstall the BSI onto the steering column and reinstall fasteners (Figure 7).

    Figure 7 - Article 04-22-12

  10. Check BSI function. With the key in the accessories or run position, press the brake pedal. The BSI pin should retract on brake application, and spring up one (1) second after releasing the brake pedal. Repeat several times.
  11. Reinstall fasteners to connect wiring bundle carrier to the steering column. Make sure all connections to the multifunction switch unit are secured properly.
  12. Reassemble steering column in reverse order. Ensure rubber gap hider around shift lever is properly seated on the shroud.
  13. Cycle the shift lever from park to drive and drive back to park several times to verify improved shift effort.


I want to make certain if at all possible what gauge of wiring to use in wiring my flight deck's controls into it's master computer's DB-15 game port circuit. I'm trying to make sure I understand wiring...

Are you makeing a Pilot chair w/ foot controls? You are right about the wiring conections a blob means they touch, no blob means no touch. You will need wiring like as used in a phone line. Multi strand w/ a sheild. Something like a 24 / 22 gage wire coper stranded not fiber. Try A/c thermostat wiring.

Internal wiring

Hi - I have a Garmin GPS 126 in bits on my desk ready for a new cable as the socket in the back has some broken pins.

Also refer to the Garmin GPS to PC Wiring Instructions here on the Garmin site:

The internal 8 pin white connector on to the back of the circuit board is as follows:

1 Red Positive
2 Black Negative
3 Yellow Data Out
4 Green Data In
5 not used
6 not used
7 White Alarm

E200 Serial Port URGENT

You will not find any matching connector to connect the JK-744 host adapter for attaching to the 9 pin serial port on the pc. If you want full pinout details please contact me directly. Please do include some information on what you are trying to achieve. Maybe I can be of help in that department. I however have a feeling that trying any micro surgery on the JK-744 or trying any kind of non Casio adapter is likely to mess up the JK-744 device itself.
