What is the probable cause of an oil leak on a 2002 Chrysler sebring with no oil in driveway Is it a seal and where is the oil going?

Could be burning it at such a slow rate not showing smoke Could be leaking on hot part of engine and burning off How much is it consuming?

Check engine light and burning smell on a 96 Chrysler sebring convertible and it just started shaking a lot -then the check engine light came on-what is going on don't have much money any clues-please?

go to a checker, autozone or auto parts store they will retrieve the codes that turned ur check engine light on, and give u tips to fix it or just re list them on here i will help you find the root cause.

Why the fuse on a sebring convertible jxi 97 burns with the new 30gb ipod even with the best ipod car-charger?

AnswerFind the location of the fuse that is burning. And check to see if the fuse that is burned out is the correct wattage for that spot.

Why does the blower fan resistor on your 98 Concorde keep burning out?

The blower fan motor is worn out.

Components used to protect a LED?

The component used to protect a LED from burning up is called a resistor.

Chrysler Sebring 2001 LXi smoke coming from engine occasionallyWas told it was due to oil burning in enginebut oil level is fine?

Itr only takes a small amount of oil to get some smoke, white smoke is coolant, gray smoke would be oil, and black smoke would be fuel.

Why is your ignition fuse burning out on your 2001 Chrysler Sebring LXI?

To fix this on my car I thought I needed a new starter but when I went to take the starter out the bolt holding the positive cable on the starter wasn't very tight so I thought maybe that's it. Well that was the problem so I took back the $160 starter and the fuse never blew again.

What is the value of resistor do you use in 2.5volts bulb with use 4 batteries with 1.5volts?

If your batteries were in series the total voltage would be 6 volts, and it the bulbs were in series you would need a resistor to keep them from burning out. In order to know how many ohms the resistor would need to be you would have to know the wattage of the bulbs, or the resistance of the bulbs. If you don't know the best thing to do is use a variable resistor. Then you can adjust it or the brightness that you want.

Is it ok to give more power than required without a resistor such as a series of LEDs that require 11.6 volts at 100 mA but actually powering them with 11.9 volts?

If you don't add a resistor to drop the additional voltage, you run the risk of burning up the LEDs.

The low speed and second speed blowers doesn't work for the blower motor?

the reason blower does not work on all speeds, is the fan blower motor resistor. The resistor is a 4-5 step series circuit, 1 resistor is added for each reduction in speed. If one burns out then so will all speeds below it. The "high" circuit usually has a separate fuse and bypasses the resistor altogether.

Blower motor works on speed 4 but not on speed 1 or 2 or speed 3?

Need to replace the blower motor resistor which is located just under the passenger side dash. 2 bolts on either side will remove it. Cost of replacement resistor is about $20.

Why does the three lower speeds on the heater not work and it smell like something is burning 2000 dodge stratus?

MSN Autos reported the blower motor problem as a resistor failure on the blower motor. In plain English, this means that the resistor on the fan motor which tells it to slow down to a lower speed than "max" is burnt out and no longer completes the circuit. If your heater is on & the fan isn't blowing, it's like a toaster in your dash, with no toast in it. It'll just smell like burning. Apparently it's a cheap fix. The resistor just has to be replaced.

What is burning smell 95 Chrysler new yorker?

You'll probably smell that burning smell if your gas is burning right, try putting about a cup of sugar into your gas tank as a catalyst.WRONG!! Do not put sugar in your gas tank! This will likely ruin your engine!!

Why does the blower motor switch only work on the high speed on my 2004 dodge Dakota?

The most likely cause is a failed blower motor resistor. When they burn out, they leave you with only the high speed fan setting no matter where you set the switch. They're about $20 usually, and can be purchased from any Dodge/Chrysler dealer, and some auto parts stores. It's a super-simple do-it-yourself repair, all you need is a screwdriver. Click through the Related Question below for instructions on how to replace it.

What are the signs that your blower motor is going out in a Chevy 1997 blazer?

They get noisy, squeal and vibrate. Also if you keep burning out the blower motor resistor, that is a sign the blower motor is on its way out.

In what way is a light bulb like a resistor?

The filament of a light bulb isn't like a resistor ... it is a resistor. The only difference from the ones on circuit boards is the it's designed to operate at a much higher temperature. So hot that it glows. The glass envelope is there to prevent oxygen from getting in and promptly burning it. When the filament becomes too hot it breaks breaking the current that was lighting it in the first place. That is why the light bulb "burns" out.

Can you drive a 2001 Chrysler sebring if the power steering pump is bad?

The only dangers that might arise from driving a vehicle with a failing power steering pump is burning up/breaking the belt that is driving the pump IF and ONLY IF the pump seizes up. The other problem you might have is the increased effort to steer the car. As long as the increased effort while driving is not a problem you can at least drive it to a service station to get it repaired.

Why does your 1999 gmc truck heater not work all ready replaced conrtrol switch?

those trucks had common problem of the blower motor resistor going bad or burning out and it would only work on high speed. the resistor is located under the passenger side dash by the blower motor. hope this helps

Why would an ignition coil keep burning out on a 1971 Barracuda with electronic ignition?

Make sure you have only about 8 volts going to it not a full 12. There is a resistor wire that should cut the voltage.

Why do circuits need a resistor?

A circuit does need resistance but not necessarily a resistor. without any resistance a circuit will be considered a "short circuit" and you power source will most likely overheat. Resistance can be created in millions of different ways. This could be something such as an or any other light source but also a module such as a capacitor resistor or diode. To get to you're question more directly a circuit needs resistance to keep from shorting out. A specific module(such as an LED) would need a resistor to lower the voltage so to a point where the module can accept the power without burning out.

Why a series resistor is necessary when a diode is forward-biasedexplain?

That's to avoid the diode from burning out. When it is forward biased, the resistance is extremely low; so even a small voltage can produce a large current, and that can quickly damage it.

How do you change the front blower motor in an 01 Dodge Grand Caravan?

First dissable the air bag system, open the glove compartment, squeeze the side in to release the glove box stops and lower glove box. You will see the Blower Motor Resistor directly behing the glove box. There will be two pig tails (one vehicle harness, one resistor), remove pig tails, remove two screws to free resistor. Replace resistor, reverse removal procedure. Done. Not sure, but the local Dodge dealer just quoted me a $945 price to do the replacement. I was told the dash and part of the AC system must come out to get to two bolts. I had the resistor replaced 3/07 because the motor would only work on high and it just now started to only work on high again, 11/07. Dealer said the motor was pulling more amps then it should and this was burning out the resistor. Resistor was garenteed for 12 mnts but since I opted to NOT replace the fan motor they said they could not garentee the resistor again.

What happens to the electrical energy when electrons flow through a resistor?

One way to look at the purpose of a resistor is as a device built to dissipateelectrical energy. Some (but usually not all) of the energy of the current througha circuit is always dissipated when it flows through a resistor. The energy lostleaves the resistor in the form of heat.The number of joules of electrical energy lost and heat dissipated by the resistor is(amperes of current through the resistor)2 x (ohms of resistance) x (seconds of time it continues)If you work with resistors often, or see several of them inside an old radio, you noticethat there are physically big ones and physically small ones. The size of the resistorisn't related to the number of ohms of resistance it has. The physical size is relatedto how fast it can dissipate energy (heat) without melting or burning up. A biggerresistor has more air around it, so it can get rid of heat faster.

The blower motor on your 1995 aurora will not run in the manual or automatic position the hvac fuse in the dash control unit test goodanyone having this problem?

You are looking at the wrong fuse. The fuse you wish to check is the blower fuse.If the fuse is ok, these cars have a problem with the wire going to the resistor block burning up. The main power going into the resistor is probably burned off of the connector. The resistor sits inside the vent system under the passengers side dash.
