02 MONTE CARLO LS When I turn the key to the ON position, if the turn signals do not flash the starter will not engage.

3.4L or 3.8L not told. hot wired the starter solenoid you meant (a SOP act that) all techs do. and good input if yes. when it failed to crank the next act is SCAN the PCM and let it tell you why it blocks cranking I sure will. OBD2 scan tools any. we check all fuses next. be a shame if 50 cent ATC fuse is cause. Battery voltage does not drop below 11vcd cranking, 12.6v is charged (rested voltage) well if the starter is dead fix that first, and the automatic trans, blocks the cranking , to the starter if the car has bad PRNDL switch (fails in park) or alram in the cluster is active is it? blinkers are last, you can still hand signal by law so fix the starter first. no need to blink if can't drive or worse stranded with dead starter , how fun is that>? Chevy. (no starter or GEN replacements right? with battery still connected. sure. not done wrong the starter runs by the CRANK relay. under hood relay and Logic runs its coil inside said relay via, BCM etc. PCM crank fuse not blown.at N/M 11 slot. the key switch at start , sends 12vdc to CRANK FUSE and that goes to PCM. the PCM is told to crank, the start. the car has tranny park cable if not calibrated, or bad, park does not happen and PCM sees that and will not crank the car with P/N switch showing wrong. 4T65t transmission must be fully in to park and not failing P/N switch not scanning the PCM first you miss all these facts. if you have the M/T box now is the time to fess up. really. here is the PCM connection to the A/T box the signals are GGGG or 0000 volts DC. if not the PCM block all cranking if you scanned the PCM you'd already know this. the PCM is smart to know that ******* codes from the switch must set a DTC error. as you can see that it is 4 times safer to not to drive over the kids. amazing no? gggg-j330kvk12vsuom0b4uptz05c-d-0.jpg its al here to read https://eautorepair.net/Checkout/ActivationPlan/2004/Chevrolet/Monte%20Carlo

I have a 2002 Kawasaki Mean Streak 1500 I'm customizing it can the rectifier be moved so it's not just hanging there.

Absolutely, the rectifier on your Kawasaki Mean Streak 1500 can be repositioned during a customization project. The rectifier is a crucial part of the motorcycle's electrical system, converting alternating current (AC) from the stator into direct current (DC) to charge the battery and power the bike's electrical components. While relocating the rectifier, it's important to consider a few key factors:
  1. Space and Mounting: Assess the available space on the motorcycle to find a suitable location for the rectifier. Ensure that the new position allows for proper mounting and secure attachment without interfering with other components or the bike's functionality.
  2. Heat Dissipation: The rectifier generates heat during operation, so it's essential to relocate it to an area with adequate airflow for cooling. Mounting it in a well-ventilated area helps prevent overheating issues.
  3. Wiring and Connections: When moving the rectifier, ensure that the wiring can be appropriately rerouted to reach its new location. Take care to maintain proper electrical connections and ensure a secure, stable wiring setup.
  4. Protection: Consider adding protective measures, such as shields or guards, to safeguard the relocated rectifier from road debris, water, or other potential hazards.
Modifying the placement of the rectifier may require custom brackets, mounts, or fabrication work to secure it in the desired location. It's crucial to execute the relocation carefully, maintaining proper electrical connections and ensuring the rectifier's safety and functionality. If you're not confident in performing these modifications yourself, consulting a professional motorcycle mechanic or technician with experience in customizations can be highly beneficial. They can offer guidance, expertise, and ensure that the modifications are carried out safely and effectively.

Choosing Between Fixing or Changing My Roof

You have to look at the expected life of the roofing shingles that were put on. Although they will often last a lot longer than the warranty, it does give some indication. The difference in warranty is based on the thickness. Wind can cause nail to tear out, or a shingle to slip. Those repairs are an easy fix, but it also depends on how many need fixing. The higher the number the more it leads to full replacement being the best option. ..

2004 Toyota Sienna. Driver side sliding door problem.

It is not clear whether your key fob continues to work for the passenger side door. If it does not, you should replace the battery in the fob. Such batteries are available at Wal-Mart among the batteries. If the sliding door on the driver's side makes a noise but fails to open when you use the fob, the latch motor maiy have failed. If the cable in the side door has frayed and snapped, this would explain why you can manually open and close the door but the electronics won't move the door. And if while trying to close it manually, the door fails to latch properly, this is why you get an alarm. If the latch motor, cables, or any other components are malfunctioning, it could lead to the door not closing securely, triggering the alarm. Check your latch mechanism and cables. If you can determine the malfunctioning part and replace it yourself, that is cheaper than going through the dealer.

2007 Buick Lucerne no crank no start key won't release won't come out of the park won't read that is in park

Here are some possibilities you can test yourself. But if none of them resolve your issue, you may need to consult a professional mechanic. Jeff Armer seems to have supplied even more detail. Just how comfortable you are will such procedures may determine just when you choose to go to a professional mechanic. No Crank or Start: This could be due to a weak battery, corrosion on battery terminals, poor starter electrical connection, bad ground connection, or a faulty starter motor. You might want to check the wires to the starter. If the car starts and runs when you jump the starter from underneath, it could indicate an issue with the starter circuit. Key Won't Release: First, ensure your vehicle is in Park and that the steering wheel is not locked. If the key still doesn't turn, try using a spare key, as the original might be worn-out or bent. If the problem persists, you might need to consult a mechanic or replace the ignition switch. Another method to try is to turn the key to the start position, let it fall back to the run position and leave it sit for ten minutes. Cycle the key off and wait five seconds and it should start. The battery has to be fully charged for this to work. Won't Come Out of Park or Won't Read That It's in Park: This could be related to the vehicle's security system. Running a diagnostic check for codes with a scan tool of both the Powertrain control module/ecu and the Body control module could help identify if any codes are stored. The vehicle should crank over in park or neutral.
