Why does my car not start when I push the start button?

False input or lack of input from sensors like the crankshaft position sensor (CKP) or camshaft position sensor (CPS) can prevent the engine from starting. Also, a bad throttle position sensor (TPS) may cut off the spark to the cylinders.

Why does my fluorescent light keep turning off?

Remember to turn off the power first! An old tube blinks off and on just before it dies; repairs are often simply a matter of replacing it. This problem may also occur because of poor contact between the pins at the ends of a tube and the tube holders. If the pins are bent, use needle-nose pliers to straighten them.

Why does my alternator run when I Turn Off the car?

Generally, an OEM harness will not have the problem of alternator “run-on”, as there is usually a resistance wire in the dash harness to keep this from happening.

What do you need to know about neon lights?

When a high voltage power source is connected to the light, it will glow.

What should I do if my neon sign keeps flickering?

Mercury in new neon signs may have yet to turn into vapor. If that’s the case, leaving the sign on for a few days should solve your flickering problem.
