    Used Buick Transmission for sale

    I'm pretty sure this is spam (or worse), will delete it later today if the OP doesn't come back and convince me otherwise.

    PO155 2002 Chevy S10 4x4 4.3L 176,000 miles

    Way back, in reply #11, you reported that you have a clamp-on DC ammeter. Have you tried using that to read actual heater current? Unfortunately, if this is an intermittent problem, you will probably have to leave a meter connected all the time for frequent checking. An in-line ammeter would...

    Fuel pump problem

    Let's regroup here, describe the problem symptoms in more detail. My understanding is that the engine dies occasionally, both while driving and while the car is stopped with the engine idling, but will crank and restart immediately. Is that correct? Does it do this every time the car is used...

    Starting/Charging System - 94 GMC C1500

    Look for a date code on the battery. If it is between 5 and 10 years old, I would be inclined to throw a new battery at it. They tend to lose amp-hour capacity with age. Maybe driving it for those 10-15 miles isn't enough charging time to "top it off" as completely as the long-term charge...

    Ford Windstar won’t crank.

    Post a picture of the wires that connect to the starter; and the starter terminals.

    Well Water

    Well depth depends a lot on the local terrain. Alongside a river or lake you may find water at 10' down; in other areas you may have to go down 250' (or more). And, of course, endless possibilities in between A call to a well/pump business in that local area can quickly get you an idea of how...

    Agreed. it is likely that the O2 sensors are not powered up when engine is not running. If you still get no voltage at S101 when the engine is running, go back to C2 pin 74 on the PCM itself. Open up the PCM and read voltage right at the pin that is soldered to the PCB. Also, will be a good...

    1987 Toyota Camry -BRAKE (STOP) LIGHTS DO NOT LIGHT

    Yes, and I'm guessing the wire labeled as going to the instrument cluster is probably an output when a lamp failure has been detected. I am awaiting a report from the Op on what is found on pin 7.

    1987 Toyota Camry -BRAKE (STOP) LIGHTS DO NOT LIGHT

    OK Dan, that makes some sense; although pins 2, 3, and 7 of the LFS are all possibilities for looking for that signal. Agreed, #7 with the GRN/WHT is most likely...

    Ford ignition problem (EDIS-6)

    Put in yet another new coil module. This third one did the trick, no more codes and engine runs fine.

    Ford Windstar won’t crank.

    Do you have an electrical multimeter? There are probably two wires connected to the starter, one much bigger than the other. The big one should have 10V, or more, when you are trying to crank. The small one should have 12V, or more, when trying to crank. There is also a big stud, similar to...

    Ford ignition problem (EDIS-6)

    Did you miss that the wires were swapped at the coil? The "bad" #3 wire/plug suddenly became OK when going to the #4 coil tower; and likewise the "good" #4 wire/plug became bad going to the #3 coil tower. Nothing changed except what end of the coil secondary was firing each plug. Plan is to...

    Ford ignition problem (EDIS-6)

    This is wasted-spark, firing order is 1-4-2-5-3-6, so paired cylinders are 1-5, 4-3, and 2-6 The first code was P0303. Pulled #3 plug and took compression. Compression was 200+, plug was reasonably clean, but gap was about .100" Closed gap to .040 but P0303 came right back. Next we swapped...

    1987 Toyota Camry -BRAKE (STOP) LIGHTS DO NOT LIGHT

    Dan, I am not seeing the connection between that "Lamp Failure Sensor" module shown in reply #9 to the "Brake Switch" in reply #6 that we are discussing. Yes, I see four GRN/WHT wires coming from pin 3 of the switch, but none are labeled as going to the sensor module. Likewise, the GRN/WHT...

    If you have a schematic, post it! We can make a lot more sense of the symptoms if we know what the wiring connections are.

    1987 Toyota Camry -BRAKE (STOP) LIGHTS DO NOT LIGHT

    If you think you may have battery cable/terminal problems that are preventing cranking, then fix that right away. We don't want to be confusing this thread with symptoms that are not related to the brake switch problem. How about Jack's comment, does this car normally require the brake pedal...

    PO155 2002 Chevy S10 4x4 4.3L 176,000 miles

    It still sounds like a wiring problem to me (although that could be "wiring" right at or in the PCM); and we still need to have a schematic so we can try to guide you through more definitive trouble-shooting. If nobody else posts a schematic, you may have to purchase a manual/subscription so...

    1987 Toyota Camry -BRAKE (STOP) LIGHTS DO NOT LIGHT

    I can't say for sure about this specific type vehicle, but I would not expect the brake switch to have any effect on cranking. Grcauto, do you have a schematic of the starting circuit to post?

    1987 Toyota Camry -BRAKE (STOP) LIGHTS DO NOT LIGHT

    Turn the key to the "run" position, where it springs back to after you release it from cranking/starting the engine. I don't expect the readings to change, but let's be sure. Have you tried jumpering 1 and 3 contacts in the harness together, does that turn on the lights/
