A PS3 can be opened rather easily, but if your PS3 is newer, or still has a warranty on it, I wouldn't open the case. If you're unsure of whether you still have a warranty on it, you can call 1-800-345-7669 and they will give you instructions. If you open your case, you WILL void the warranty. That being said, here goes:

1. Locate the side of the PS3 with the HDD symbol on it(The left side of the PS3). Above the HDD symbol, there is a sticker that covers a plastic cover. Removing this sticker will void any warranty still on the PS3.
2. Peel off the sticker and gently pry the plastic cover out. There is a recessed area with a screw at the bottom, use a small screwdriver to unscrew it.
3. The plastic cover on top of the PS3 is now loose, and you can slide the plastic cover towards the left side of the PS3(where you just removed the sticker) and lift it off.
4. There are 8 screws holding a second plastic cover down. Unscrew them with a Phillips head screwdriver, and set them aside. Lift the cover straight off, and set aside. You have now opened your PS3, and have access to the Blu-Ray player and other internals.
Good Luck!

The running bords on my 2008 Yukon stop working


Circuit/System Description
The assist step control module (ASC) controls the running board actuators to extend or retract the running boards. Each actuator consists of an electric motor and a potentiometer. The module supplies a low reference and 10-volt reference source voltage to the potentiometer. The ASC control module monitors the voltage drop across the potentiometer on the position signal circuit. When the actuator shaft rotates, the voltage on the position signal circuit changes. The ASC control module supplies the actuator motor with a 12-volt control circuit and a ground control circuit. The ASC module controls the direction of the actuator by changing the polarity of the control circuits.
You should take this to a ASE certified repair shop that has the diagnostic tools to check for stored DTC'S in the running board control module . A code reader for check engine light codes will not work for this system !
This system can set numerous DTC'S

Diagnostic Procedure Instructions provides an overview of each diagnostic category.

I change the pads on my dodge jorney and


this is very simple but you will need an assistant. take the wheel off of the caliper you need to bleed. have your assitant keep steady pressure on the brakes while you slowly open the bleeder screw. you don't want to open it so far the brake fluid squirts all over. if the brake pedal hits the floor you will need to tighten the bleeder screw before your assistant lets off the pedal. another helpful thing to have is a clear tube that fits snugly aroung the bleeder screw so when you open it you can see the air bubbles more easily.
