You have bad connections at the inputs. If you can solder, carefuilly remove the board that has the input connector and resolder the jack onto the PC board. This should be done ASAP as with the connection loose like that the circuit board traces are soon to break.

Car just refuses to start

Clicking usually indicates low charge on battery, but it can also be the contacts from the battery to the engine and frame. Check the cables to see if they are not making good contact or corroded--if you are a DIY enthusiast change the battery cables or get a metal-wire brush & wrenches & clean everywhere they connect.

Another preliminary task is to do a wiggle test--wiggle all the wiring you can see under the hood & try restarting to see if there's an intermittant wiring or harness connection problem with anything under the hood. Honda Pilots have problems like this with the main wiring harness.

I have a 2004 Buick LeSabre I'm having a problem with my driver low beam headlight. It works only sometimes. What are some of the things I can do before I take it to the shop?

Hi Tiana,

It sounds like you have a bad connection somewhere. I'd have a look at the wiring harness that connects to the headlamp itself. With the lights off, unplug it & replug it in and try the lights again. Doing this would dislodge dirt and grime and help reestablish a good connection again. If they come on, tap or wiggle the wiring harness connector to see if it goes out. If it goes out - there may still be a problem with the lamp or connector. If not - tap the front lens of the headlamp to see if it goes out. Do NOT touch the light bulb itself! If it goes out it may likely be the filament moving and replacing the bulb would be required.

My dodge ram 1986 headlights,taillights, alternator and dash board stopped working. The heater is the only thing that works. Does anyone know anything about this problem and solutions to fix it???Please...

Here are a couple things to check. There should be a heavy wire coming off the positive battery cable at the battery post. Follow this wire down a few inches and it should have a connector, check that connector for a good connection. If this is ok then look for a connection box at the firewall,(drivers side) where a main harness of wires run through to inside. Check that bunch of wires, one way of doing this is to wiggle the wires firmly while someone else is watching for the headlights to come on. That is called a wiggle test, so a person can start wiggling wires for the bad connection to show up. You may have to go to inside fire wall by steering column and wiggle there. On some chrysler products the amp meter gives problems.

Starter has lost power when we wiggle wires truck will start..once turned off won't start again untill we re-wiggle wires. seems like the black housing that the red wire goes into is loose.

You have a loose connection on the starter or a grounded wire that causes a short. When you wiggle the wires you break the contact causing the short so it starts. Replace them and the problem will go away.

1995 camaro starter

Very easy. Get the car off the ground on the driver side and remove the 2 bolts and 2 wires to the starter and drop down. The exhaust may be or seem to be in the way but you can wiggle it through carefully. wiggle in the replacement and attach the wires carefully and bolt into place checking to make sure your wires are not kinked after you install the bolts. hope this helps
