I have a Ram 3500 that I use to pull a horse trailer-the electrical is through a 7way connection. All of the lights,on the trailer, work except the left turn signal. There is power at the tab on the female side of the plug, on the truck but when I take the back off of the male side of the plug,from the trailer, there is no power at the tab . I have tried slightly bending contact points and wiggling the plug-but no power or left turn signal. The right signal works fine. Any ideas about why no

The battery on my 1970 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme (350 Rocket) seems to drain over a period of 3 to 5 days of no use. I've checked all the lights and other electrical devices to make sure they are 'nt functioning on their own, and I'm stumped. Is there a component that could be causing the discharge? Possibly a relay that may be hanging open when the ignition is off? Is this vehicle maybe notorious for this at this age? Any help would be appreciated.

Power off my car stopped running suddenly for no reason. i turned on the engine and all the power in the car went off. i jumped it. it worked again just fine for a week. then turned off completely again. tried jumping it again. it didnt work. towed it home and today before i tried changing the battery, the car powered on fully without and runs fine. Could this be an electrical problem or a fuse? what could cause the car to turn off for no reason and turn back on? it was not overheating.

I have a '96 Tracker lsi. After driving a few miles today it started losing power, smoke was rising from around the engine and making a ratteling noise. I checked the oil, transmission and radiator fluids--all fine and the gages showed it wasn't running hot. AT one point it stalled out but after sitting for 20 minutes it started right up and ran fine for a few more miles--long enough to get me home thank the powers that be. Any ideas? Thanks.
