I need to ask you for a bit more information. Ordinarily a socket for a 3-way lamp has two external connections, one of which goes to power (black is the standard color) and one which connects to the neutral wire (white is the standard color). The other wire commonly encountered in house wiring is green, which is a ground connection. Lamps normally do not use a ground. The Levitron web page does not flag this socket to be anything out of the ordinary, but neither do they show the connections.

So please provide any additional information that you can on this socket. Is it meant to hold a single, 3-way incandescent bulb, or is it for a florescent bulb? Is it meant for a special purpose?

low volts wont harm the starting system
means the alternator is working well
maybe the battery is old

more attention to regular servicing
and checking under the bonnet required

try cleaning the battery terminals
if the connection are that crusty
baking soda and hot water

How do I replace the Leviton Bi-Pin on a Linear Fluoresent Lampholder?

Take the end cap off the fixture case - unwire the old socket and reverse the process for installing a new socket.
The little slots on either side of the socket slide onto the fixture case.

If you blew breaker than you connected Neutral wire to switch.
Neutral wire never connects to switch.

Identify Hot wire.
There is only one Hot wire that carries power to switch box.
This wire connects to one side of device ... which side? ... the side where both screws are bonded together.

95 GMC surburban keeps dying when in low rpm. I replaced the fuel filter and it ran good for a few days, then started crapping out again. I then replaced the spark plugs and wires and it ran great for...

First check for a vacuum leak. Any small loose hoses in the engine compartment? If not, suspect the idle air control valve. I have pasted test procedures for the iac below. Be careful not to confuse the tps with the iac. The tps is centered on the ybro5ttle body. The iac is more on the perimeter. An additional test I do after checking the valve is to plug it back in while it is still off the throttle body and verify that it actuates a little when the key is turned on. It should back up a tad to allow idle air through the passage for starting.

Disengage the IAC electrical connector.Using an ohmmeter, measure the resistance between IAC terminals A and B. Next measure the resistance between terminals C and D.Verify that the resistance between both sets of IAC terminals is 20-80 ohms. If the resistance is not as specified, the IAC may be faulty.Measure the resistance between IAC terminals B and C. Next measure the resistance between terminals A and D.Verify that the resistance between both sets of IAC terminals is infinite. If the resistance is not infinite, the IAC may be faulty.Also, with a small mirror, inspect IAC air inlet passage and pintle for debris. Clean as necessary, as this can cause IAC malfunction.

Disconnect the negative battery cable.Disengage the electrical connection.Remove the IAC valve. On thread-mounted units, use 1 1 / 4 in. (32mm) wrench and on flange-mounted units, remove the screw assemblies.Remove the IAC valve gasket or O-ring and discard it.To install:
Clean the old gasket material from the surface of the throttle body assembly on the thread mounted valve. On the flange-mounted valve clean the surface to ensure proper O-ring sealingInstall the valve with a new gasket or O-ring. Tighten the thread mounted assembly 13 ft. lbs. (18 Nm) and tighten the flange mounted attaching screws to 28 inch. lbs. (3 Nm).Engage the electrical connector to the IAC valve.Connect the negative battery cable.ecd523da-60e9-4928-9b74-9d90b47be2df.gif0996b43f802319fe-tedh1mdkpnm2cwqabpnjpaem-4-2.gif0996b43f802319ff-tedh1mdkpnm2cwqabpnjpaem-4-3.gif0996b43f80219b22-tedh1mdkpnm2cwqabpnjpaem-4-4.gif

I replaced my old 3way toggle switches with the LEviton 5613 3way lighted rocker switches. Wired exactly the way the older toggle switches were wired. Switches work fine just like the older ones but one...§ion=10103&minisite=10025
The Leviton page for Leviton 5613 does not have a troubleshoot.
Manual shows simple wiring diagram.
3-way switches will not operate lights if switches are wired incorrectly.
Check your ground wire is connected.
Leviton 5613 series is illuminated.
Check that both switches have 5613 number.
Swap switches and see if problem is inside switch.

The dimmer switch will turn on and off but wont dim the lights on a chandelier. model 6681-w. tried 2 different ones with the same results.

The Leviton 6681 is a push-button rotary-type incandescent dimmer with 600Watt capacity
If you have incandescent bulbs, the dimmer should work.
If the dimmer has different color wires, try reversing the wires.
If the dimmer replaced a 3-way switch, then this is not the right dimmer.
If you have compact florescent bulbs, you need a dimmer that also dims florescent.
Link shows the Leviton 6673 incandescent and florescent dimmer

But you also need dimmable compact florescent bulbs.
