SOURCE: No electric windows, mirrors, or door locks

Look in the Engine bay fuse box at Fuse #12 this should be for the power windows. If this checks out OK, it could be a fault with a bad ground wire in driver's side door harness. You should be able to pry the runbber boot from the drivers door, and check the larger Black wire that goes through it. These have been known to break after a few years use. If it is the cable, cut neatly, strip the ends anu use a crimp splice. Hope this is a quick and easy fix for you. If it helps you solve the problem, Please take a moment to rate as Fixya! Thanks.

SOURCE: Toyota Camry 1991 door light stays on

You need to readjust the switch on your trunk door, or replace. To check it locate it, tape it down with duct tape and see if the light goes off. If not it's bad. If it does it means it isn't sticking out far enough to be turned off when the trunk is closed. The adjusment should be fairly obvious. If not you can simply unplug it which has the same result as turning it off.

SOURCE: Warning bell won't stop sounding

i went thru a considerable amount of relays in my windstar. I would suggest stopping by a junk/recycling/wrecking yard and picking up a handfull of relays for the windstar/freestar. look under the dash in the fuse panel for the relays and replace any in the circuits affected. if you are in luck the relay circuits will be shown on the cover of the fuse panel.

if the problem is the sliding door... there are a row of circular copper contact points on the door jam as it slides shut as well as "fingers" on the door that make contact with them when you close the door. Use an eraser or similar to make sure the contacts are clean.

Do not overlook the relays in the engine compartment near the battery as a cause for some of the issues you are having.

as a side note... i dropped into my local ford dealer and talked nicely to the parts guy.... he gave me a print out of all the fuses/relays and their locations which was a huge help. give that a try.

let me know how you made out.... and take a moment if this was a successful fix to rate this solution.. thanks

Robert

P.S. i was able to manage almost 400,000 kms from my windstar before i sold it. and the only issue it had then was that it would not stay running (a fairly easy fix)

check for any recalls on that issue with the manufacturer, cold condensation may worked its way inside the electronics and ruined them.

SOURCE: windscreen wiper on Mercedes C200 not working

you should check the connection to the main board and the connections to the motor for the wipers. these sometimes become gunked up, so when you pull them apart to check them clean them with sand paper or something that can scrub them like a green scratch pad

Why does my Digidor2 garage door motor occasionally stops working and then starts again after 20 or 30 minutes? What is the cause and can it be rectified to restart sooner? Is there a re-set button?


The motor may be overheating. There is a centrifugal switch inside the motor that switches the start capacitor in and out of the start winding in the motor. If this switch fails the motor draws excessive current thru the run winding and it will cause it to get hot quickly.

Garage Door: How to fix single car garage door that is in raised position, on tracks but will not move using the power opener or manually?


Gary released the lift could be the rails that the rollers ride on are bent or damaged what you can try is disconnect the 4 panels and try moving top panel inside the rails slots movement to the back and force and see how it works if ok then hook up the next and try it and next try it and next try it this way you can see if one of the panels or the rail is not correct lined up until you have all 4 panels connected again or check with your house insurance and see if they will cover you installing a new garage door system.

My driver side window will not roll up but i can hear the moter running in it? how can i get it up?


you have to remove the inside door trim to gain access to fix the problem, if it is cable driven the cable may have come off the rollers or you may have stripped the drive gear (plastic usually)

I have 2 liftmaster 3245. The hand held remotes were working fine then stopped. I replaced the batteries and turned of all electrical/RIF close by. Still not working. Both cars operate the doors with no...


You need to reprogram the remotes by briefly pushing the learn button on the garage door opener until it flashes once, then release the button on the garage door opener.

Now press the remote button once until you hear the garage door opener click, now press the remote button once again and the remote should be programmed to work for that garage door opener.

DO NOT press and hold the garage door opener learn button for more than 10 seconds or you'll erase all programs and have to relearn all the remotes, including your car ones.

Hope you found this very helpful and best regards.

Motor stops


Could be the run winding on the motor...indicating a bad motor. When you press the button, the start winding starts the motor, then the run winding kicks in to run the motor and the start winding turns off (it's no longer needed). You should replace the motor, that would be my first thought.

Windshield wipers just stopped working,but i can hear the moter.


There isn't a cable, its a flat bar with push on connectors at each end one of which has probably popped off
You need to take off the mesh panel that goes the width of th car just below the wind shield to access this.
There is only one motor and if you can hear it working its probably OK
