== == Tighten the bulb/plug Make sure both the hot (black) and neutral (white) connections under the wire nuts are solid, and that terminals (screws) are tight. == == <><><> If neither of the above tips help to fix the problem it could be caused by a loose connection anywhere else in the circuit. For example it could be a loose screw which should hold a wire tight in a terminal on a switch that controls the lamp. Always make sure you have switched off your electricity supply at the main breaker before you take a look at those cable screws!

If you don't know how to do that then you must call in a licensed electrical technician to fix the problem as soon as possible because a loose cable screw could be dangerous.

The reason for that warning is this: when the lamp is burning the loose connection is very likely to be getting hot and could start a fire. The danger exists even if the circuit breaker does not cut the current. (It may well not cut the current because it won't be higher than it should be...) Always be sure to switch off the breakers at the main panel

before you attempt to do any work on any mains power circuit. As always, if you are in doubt about what to do, the best advice anyone should give you is to call a licensed electrician to advise what work is needed.

Before you do any work yourself,

on electrical circuits, equipment or appliances,

always use a test meter to ensure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized.

2001 echo engine light is on pressure hose was off you put it back on but how do you re-pressure it or do you have to do that Please help.?

im not sure what you mean by "pressure hose" but if its part of the evaporative emission controls, it pressurizes itself. if you disconnect then reconnect the battery, the check engine light should go out. if that was the problem, the light will stay off. if it comes back on, bring it to a garage, they can "scan" it and find more specifically what the problem is.

If you reset the computer then the Check Engine light comes back on, it just means that the problem still exists. You need to use a code scanner, find out what's wrong, fix the problem properly THEN see if the light comes back on. Often when the problem is properly repaired the light will go off by itself and you don't need to clear the code.
