  • Driver's door locks after lifting the handle?

    On a 1996 Ford Explorer, when lifting the driver's door handle the door is locked. I've tried disabling the autolock feature for the security system and it made no difference or else it's not working right. I don't know. I unlocked the door behind the Driver's door and that door stays unlocked. I took a look at the Driver's side door latch and could see that when the door handle is lifted up, the power door lock actuator arm also moves up but I don't hear the actuator activating. I'm thinking something inside the latch is messed up. I'm not going to take it off unless I know it's the problem.

    Also, regarding the power door lock system, it will unlock all the doors buit not lock them. When locking them, only the Driver's door and the door behind it are locked, leaving the passenger's side door and the door behind it unlocked. I could only find one actuator for both doors but the manual says each door has it's own.

    What could be causing this? Is it the Door latch

  • Atrazine: How often to spray?

    I sprayed Atrazine on some areas where clovers were/are everywhere and after about 2 or 3 weeks it's slowly taking effect. The leaves are heavily whitened but my Mom doesn't think it's working fast enough and wants me to spray again. How long should it take for the clovers to stop appearing? Is it ok to spray again or should I wait a little longer and how much longer?

    I have a number of images for the slideshow but the second image is always displayed first instead of the first one first. The first image is only displayed after all the other images have been shown.

  • Firefox: Javascript for() with multiple increment-expressions hangs?

    Firefox 3 hangs when I use two or more increment expressions in a javascript for() loop.

    Example code:

    [begin code]

    for(j = 0,k = 0; j != 3; j++,k++);

    [end code]

    Although I can't see why, is this a bug or is it not supported in Firefox?

  • Why are li:before and li:after being ignored in my CSS?

    Any styling for li:before or li:after I put in CSS is ignored.

    The webpage url is

    Here's the CSS code:


    body {background-color: #a00070;}

    #Main1 {

    color: black;

    font-family: Times New Roman, Arial, Helvetica;


    #Main2 {margin-top: 15px;}

    #Header {

    text-align: center;

    color: #a00070;


    h1 {

    font-size: 35px;

    letter-spacing: 2px;


    .Text, li:after {

    background-color: black;

    color: #f000d0;

    text-align: left;

    font-family: Arial, Helvetica;

    font-size: 13px;

    font-weight: normal;

    word-spacing: 2px;

    letter-spacing: normal;

    line-height: 17px;


    .Title, li:before {

    background-color: #000080;

    color: #d800a0;

    font-size: 13px;

    font-weight: bold;

    letter-spacing: 1px;


    .Title {text-align: center;}

    ol {

    margin-left: -20px;

    text-align: left;


    #Header, #div_pn_images, #div_pn_ad, #div_pn_coupon, #div_Credit_name {background-color: black;}

    #div_Credit_space {background-color: #000090;}

    #Credit_name {

    color: cyan;

    font-family: Verdana, Georgia, Arial, Helvetica;

    font-size: 14px;

    font-weight: bold;



    As you may see none of the text for li:before and li:after are being applied.

    I can accomplish what I want by using classes in the li tags and spans for the text but li:before / after is much cleaner if I can get it to work.

    Am I missing something in the CSS?

  • Trying to call a function from CSS?

    I'm trying call a function from CSS to select an appropriate background image according to the users screen resolution. I have defined the function in a separate .js file and have the .js src defined and loaded before the CSS link definition in the web page I'm building.

    When I load the page the background color shows but no image appears. The javascript debugger says the function is not defined.

    The link declarations look like this:

    <script src="pn.js" type="text/javascript"></script>

    <link href="pn.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="screen, tv, tty" />

    and my CSS is:

    body {background: #C71585 url("javascript:bg_image()") repeat fixed;}

    How do I get this function to execute from CSS?

  • What's the best way to restore teak wood?

    I'm working on a teak bench for my mom. It's her project for me. :s

    It was originally grey and filthy. I used denatured alcohol and steel wool she bought to clean it first but the wool was breaking off in the grain. I then used a brass bristle brush to get the rest off til I could see the natural golden color. It seemed to be taking forever and so I tried a steel wire brush which worked great.

    However, I read the wood should be smooth and after using the wire brushes, the grain is very raised. So I used a sander to get it smooth but I the heat from the sanding seemed to bring out the oil in the wood and turned blackish to light green.

    I tried wet sanding to eliminate the heat but I couldn't tell any difference. When dry it's very light grey to grey green and not the golden color.

    What's the correct way to restore teak wood? Did I have it right the first time with grain raised?

  • What in chocolate icing / frosting would give it a glue taste?

    After eating some German Chocolate cake I got from Sam's Club I noticed the icing / frosting had a glue taste to it, not like that from envelopes or elmer's but more like epoxy glue.

    I called Sam's club and the receptionist said they've had many calls about it over the years but when I talked to a Deli person about it she said no one's said anything about it to them before.

    What would give chocolate icing / frosting this glue taste?
