Ignition module, ECM, ignition coil are all resonable suspects. Ignition module, ECM, ignition coil are all resonable suspects.

This is a very vague question, but I'm going to take a stab at it. # Motherboard # Power Supply # Case # Hard Drive # Memory (RAM) # Processor (CPU) # Floppy Drive / Optical Drive (CD/DVD/BD Drive)

It is not illegal to drive without power steering. Many people who drive very old cars do not have power steering.

None. The computer stores all of the data that is held in RAM to the master drive. After this is done, it will power off. At this time you can unplug it. No power is used until you start it up again.

It connects the drive to the system power supply.

get a new coil. a coil on an engine is designed to take a little power and make it into BIG power. also check wires and connections going to coil. your problem sounds like the coil though. good going in, nothing coming out. there's your problem.

the answer is that if you were going up a moantain on a high sloap and you were trying to pass someone you would press the button for that it kicks in a little bit more horse power and helps you gain a little speed and gets you a little more hoarse power

rear wheel drive , or four wheel drive capable if 4X4 equipped , and if you have the 5.0 L V8 engine , they came in rear wheel drive or all wheel drive versions ( where all 4 wheels had power going to them continuously )

The four pin Floppy drive power cable...

Yes -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- No , all wheel drive has power going to all 4 wheels all the time . MY 4x4 has power going to the rear wheels and if the rear wheels slip power also starts going to the front wheels ( unless I have 4x4 LOW selected , then power goes to all 4 wheels all the time ) When manufacturers say All wheel drive, it usually means that it is always on and the transfer case has a limited slip differential type mechanism to allow you to turn and not wheel hop. 4 wheel drive locks both axles to go at the same rate and it is difficult and causes problems when driven on hard surfaces like asphalt. Mainly for off roading or getting unstuck.

If it's an IDE drive, it will use a 4-pin peripheral power connector, often called a "Molex" power connector, Molex being a major manufacturer of these types of power connectors. If the drive is a SATA drive, it will use a standard 15-pin SATA power connector.

It is also called, thumb drive, power drive, and pen drive.

if you remove rear drive shaft, you can still drive on front wheels. just be aware that the vehicle will handle differently on take off and cornering as all power is going straight to front wheels

Winter drive - you must be going under 7 mph when you engage it. It keeps the SUV in 3rd gear (max ~ 40 mph) so that speed is reduced, control is better. Useful for when roads are slick with snow/ice, especially curvy, hilly roads. Power drive - gives slightly more power when accelerating. Increases the RPM's for each gear. Mileage will suffer, though.

all wheel drive has power going to all 4 wheels all the time the vehicle is in motion My 1995 Ford Explorer is four wheel drive , it has a two wheel drive setting that powers the rear wheels , a 4x4 automatic setting where if the back wheels slip some of the power is transferred to the front wheels , and a 4x4 low setting that sends power to all 4 wheels continuously for off road use at reduced speeds

well the usb is good for storage but it uses little power but its small so it can get lost hope it helpsxx but

it depends on which drive you want to change....if its just a simple CD ROM drive , open up the casing and remove the cables going to the back of the drive (taking note as to where the little pin cover is so that you can make the necessary changes to the new drive ) you don't wanna take out an old drive that was set to master drive and replace it with drive that has the pins set to slave....that will cause complications later then just hook up the grey cable first and then the power cable...make sure the computer is unplugged through this whole proccess as to avoid electrical shock
