Answer . There isn't any starter on a 1997 Roadmaster, because there is no 1997 Roadmaster.\n. \nFor years that were produced, the starter is located on be lower part of the engine, much as it is for any other automobile. Follow the positive battery cable.
1992 buick lesaber doesnt stay running unless the gas pedal is pushed in no idle time how is this adjusted?
Answer . \nyou will have to replace the trottle possitioning sensor (TPS) THIS WILL SOLVE YOU PROBLEM
Check for obstructions in trunk lid latch, or lose hardware. If not that, check for objects pressing on release button in glove box or possible lose wire contacts on button. If not that, then you may be pressing on remote release button in your pocket while driving car. Leave remote at home and see …if it still opens. Could be bad contact in remote control button. (MORE)
2000 Buick Lesaber after battery change all windows and door locks except driver quit working any ideas?
Answer . take it in to have the codes reset. they were set off with the battery change.
The Asker of this question either knows the answer already and wants to test fellow engineers to describe the system in plain words, or this is another student's homework or exam question! The method used to fit all the wires neatly into the cramped amount of space available is a clever combinati…on of interweaved horizontal and vertical loops, sometimes known as "knowing how to do knitting with very thick copper wires"! This kind of question really needs a diagram to illustrate the answer but such diagrams are either the copyrights of various authors of books about the theory of operation and the practical design of electrical machines or are manufacturers' patented designs, neither of which can be published here on WikiAnswers.

A 1996 buick like all GM cars is equipt with obd II, as apposed to earlier cars with obdI. ObdII is a leaning computer that actually make adjustment to it self, and the operating prosedures of the car based on your driving habits. I am un aware of any way to bypass it short of doing a lot of rewirin…g, and setting up the ingnition as if it were a race car, but it would not be cheap, and there would be a lot of hurdle to over come along the way.

A DC generator is a machine that converts mechanical energy into direct current electrical energy. A longer answer A DC generator is an electrical machine which produces direct current electricity. It must be turned by a prime mover which can be an internal combustion engine - driven, usually, …by diesel oil or gasoline - or can be a turbine, driven either by superheated steam or by water falling from a reservoir. (The latter is known as "hydro-electric power generation"). For more information see the answers to the Related Questions shown below. (MORE)
Brake fluid could be low. Check for leaky brake lines under the car also. Quite often older cars have rusty brake lines that leak fluid sometimes just a little bit but these should be repaired as they can blow apart when you hit the brakes hard and cause an accident.. Check your emergency brake and… make sure it as pulled all the way off also. (MORE)
It has two main functions in a generator - firstly, it transfers the electrical energy from the (moving) armature coils to the (stationary) external electrical load circuit. The brushes are made of graphite, with a tiny trace of copper in it, so they're self-lubricating where they ruib on the copper… commutator bars (those copper strips on the armature that the coil ends connect to). Secondly, the electricity generated in the rotating armature coils is alternating current, and the brushes, working with the commutator acts like a switch to reverse the connections between the coil ends and the external circuit when the alternating voltage reverses its polarity (+ and -) to give direct current in the external circuit. Have a look at http://community.myelectrical.com/wikis/myelectricalwiki/basic-generator-operation.aspx for more information. (MORE)
current flows in both directions, depending on the AC voltage, i.e when ac is higher, current flows to the dc side, and vice versa.
Converting D/C into A/C is very expensive. You can use inverters to switch the direction of the current but you would probably be better off to replace your DC generator with an AC generator and if you need both AC and DC power then use a rectifier (inexpensive when compared to inverters) to convert… the AC to a DC current.

U sohuld replace the slip-ring which it is in the AC generator to a commutator. It is a split-ring. Then u can produce DC generator.
if i remember correctlly it was Benjiman Franklin, or he was the one who discovered AC.. it's some one at that sentury..that is all i know... lol..
Both the crank and cam sensors are needed for the computer to fire the correct spark plug at the right time. If either are bad the engine will die. Typically it can be started again after it cools off. The failure of either one will be recorded in the computer. Have the error code read out to see if… this is your problem. (MORE)
What are the three general steps which are necessary for installing a network card and connecting a PC to a network?
Put the NIC in the PC, and install the NIC's drivers. Configure the NIC using Windows, so that it has the appropriate addresses on the network and the correct network protocols. Test the NIC to verify that the PC can access resources on the network.

A DC generator is Direct Current most common in industrial environments. Limited to DC equipment such as motors, cranes, certain types of lighting etc. A AC generator is Alternating Current can be used in virtually every environment. These are used for virtually everything from residential dwellings… to large steel manufacturing facilities. (MORE)
On a fuel injected Buick you must remove the fuel tank in order to access the fuel pump.
You can make a voltage divider set of resistors and tap off the desired voltage. Some voltage regulators can be fed much higher voltages. The regulator will provide a constant settable voltage with short circuit and overload protection. There are DC to DC converters. They first turn the DC into AC t…hen rectify it and produce DC.

You know these type questions baffle me. Why would you care or want to know what this car was worth 4 years ago? Of what benefit is that information to you? Just curious.
Such conversions are often inefficient and/or expensive. It requires an external power supply or battery charger to convert AC into DC.
A Direct Current (DC) generator is a device which will convert mechanical energy into electrical energy using the principle of Faradays law's of Electro Magnetic Induction (EMI).
Disconnect battery. Starter is under car, on engine, by radiator. Unbolt/remove the two wires that are bolted to starter. Unbolt the two bolts securing starter and your done.
What we usually call an AC generator is really an alternator, and what we usually call a d.c. generator is really a dynamo. In an alternator, the rotating part is the field coil, which is supplied with DC current to produce a rotating magnetic field. When the field rotates through the stator windin…gs, it induces an AC voltage which becomes the output. A DC generator, like the ones found on very old automobiles, is opposite - the field coils are fixed, and the output windings (armature) rotate. Although the voltage in the armature is technically AC, the output goes through a commutator - a pair of segmented brass or copper rings at the end of the armature. The commutator constantly switches the polarity of the output so that one terminal is always positive, effectively rectifying the output so that it is DC. A pair of carbon brushes that contact the spinning commutator are used to conduct the armature voltage to the load. (MORE)
Why is it that when you have a dc generator connected in series does your voltage drop as you add loads to it?
A generator supplies a fixed amount of power "(IxV)" . If it has the ability of supplying 10 amps at 12 volts: 10amps x 12volts=120 watts, as you increase the "load" your voltage has to decrease to give you your rated 120 watts. 12amps x 10 volts=120 watts if you have motor pulling a load the more …load you put the slower it will run. power=speed x torque : power=pressure(voltage) x current flow: (MORE)
\nyou can simply convert dc to ac by rectification method. This is done by assembling electronics components; such as; diodes(4), transistor n resistors.
A: while a step can be of both polarity but it is a level change and it is DC LEVELS
By using a gas engine to drive a dc motor. Motors are cool in the way that if you give them power they will spin and if you spin them they will make power. There is a ball of coiled wire in a motor and when it spins the magnets in it try to resist the spinning but if it succeeds in spinning then ele…ctrons will be pushed through the coils by the resistance of the magnets and ultimately through your electrical appliance's.

For fault conditions, the DC offset is caused by where the fault occurs on the voltage waveform. When the fault initially occurs, the voltage can be looked at as an AC waveform superimposed onto an impulse response (A DC wave). The magnitude of the impulse is equivalent to the voltage when the fault… initiated (flash over usually occurs near a voltage peak, providing a potentially large DC component). The inductance of the system (j*w*L) appears as 0 impedance to this DC voltage. Z (impedance) = R (resistance) + X (inductance), usually X >> R, X = j*w*L Since X = 0 for the impulse, there is an initial large current since V = I / Z, and Z = R initially. This current slowly dies off based on the time constant of the circuit, 1/(L*R). A lot of times you will hear talk of the the DC component being caused by the "X/R ratio". The higher this ratio, the larger the DC component (generally) and the longer the time constant generally is (although this is not always the case). Similar analysis applies to other causes of DC offset. (MORE)
What is the difference between cumulative and differential connections of dc compound motor or generator?
CUMULATIVE COMPOUND MOTOR It is one in which series field is so connected that it assists the field due to shunt winding.The armature torque is increased under heavy load at starting.As the load increases,the speed decreases in the same way as in series motor.When the load is increased suddenly the… shunt field prevents the motor from speeding up beyond the safe value. DIFFERENTIAL COMPOUND MOTOR It is one in which winding is so connected that the field due to it opposes that due to shunt winding.It tends to keep the speed constant.When starting up the motor,the series windin is required to be short circuited otherwise the series field winding would rise to its full value before shunt field.This will cause the motor to start in the wrong direction,at high speed.

A DC generator, or "dynamo", is very similar to a DC electric motor but cannot be described as "exactly the same as a motor" because a DC generator's designed purpose is not to "use" electricity (which a DC motor does) but to "make", or "produce", electricity.
The main parts of the generator are stator which produces the stationary magnetic field , armature and commutator.
Both dc generator & dc motor are the same and known dc machine.when we give an electrical supply to the dc machine a torque developed due to flux intraction & works as motor. but we used dc machine as a generator we rotate the rotor or prime mover by using external sourse.due to this the rotor condu…ctors cut by the stationary magnetic field and electrical power is generated as per faradays law. Here the main difference is when we giving electrical energy to the rotor of dc machine produce torque(motor)but when we give the mechanical energy to rotor it produce electrical energy(generator) (MORE)

An alternator can charge the battery with the engine idling. Unlike a generator that only charges when the engine is running at higher rpms. The alternator also can support higher amperages that is needed in modern cars with lots of electronics. The alternator is also more reliable than a generator …with far fewer failures. Most alternators have the voltage regulator built into the alternator unlike the generator that uses an external voltage regulator that fails quite often. (MORE)
demagnetising effect of dc generator is to reduce main field fluxthere by reduction in generated voltage.
'Windage' is air resistance. So, 'windage losses' are losses sustained by the rotor in order to overcome air resistance. 'Windage' is pronounced 'wind- (as in air movement) age'.

The method used in cars is to have a 3-phase generator oralternator which is turned by the engine. Six diodes in a full-waverectifier connect the alternator directly to the car's battery.
For AC generators slip ring commutators are use but in case of dc generators split ring commutators are used for converting AC generated in the armature to DC
At the output install a full wave bridge and filter the output to get a desired amount of ripple. Then add circuitry to create the desired DC voltage. Or just buy a AC to DC converter or variable DC power supply that has an AC power input.
The fact a generator is A/C is a function of how the generator works. Think of voltage as water pressure. A generator works by sweeping a magnet around the inside of a coil of wiring. This means that the electrons are being moved first one direction, then the other. the result is A/C power. D/C …sources generate a constant stream of electrons from one side to the other, like a battery. It's possible to convert AC to DC by blocking flow of the electrons in one direction, but AC power has a lot of advantages for power grid use: it can be put through a transformer, making high-voltage transmission over lines more efficient, and it is better for running motors, which is the largest use of electrical power in terms of the amount of raw power consumption. The short answer: because the physics of a generator makes it impossible. (MORE)
The two are different machines, but you can connect diodes on theoutput of an ac generator to produce dc, that's what happens inalternators for cars. A car alternator is a 3-phase ac generator, and you have sixdiodes. From each of the three phase outlets you have one diode tothe positive rail and o…ne to the negative. (MORE)
