My sisters Yukon has mysteriously lost both high and low beams on the headlights. I was wondering what would cause this and if there may be a relay that went out I could change.
Some of her friends looked at it and said it was an electrical problem, but they aren't mechanics and don't have a lot of knowledge.
Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!4 AnswersGMC1 decade ago
I can write a nice formal letter, but am a bit unknowing as to any special things the city environmental coordinator would like to see in this letter. If someone could give me a few pointers I would surely appreciate it. Thank you.

Help with a Severe Weather Policy when you don't have an adequate place for employees to take shelter..?
I'm looking to implement a Severe Weather Policy for the employees where I work, but looking at our facility there is not a good place for shelter in the event of inclement weather. The structure doesn't have an area that is adequate for shelter and we are moving locations in the future so having one built is not really an option because I doubt I can get a check for that. Any input is appreciated. Please keep the responses to professional and informed answers. Thank you.4 AnswersWeather1 decade ago

Battery, alternator are good.. I just helped a friend replace the starter.. got everything back together and should be in working order, but when he first went to start it up there was the same click like the solonoid was bad. I went back.. checked the wires and all the connections just to make sure something wasn't off, but still no ignition. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What is the affect of concentrated acids, including Hydrofluoric on diamonds? I am curious because I have been to Murfreesboro, Arkansas to the diamond mine with my girlfriend and we brought back a bucket of our better minerals and maybe diamonds. I decided to acid wash the mineral/mud mixture with HCl and didn't know if it would damage a diamond in my mix. I would think definitely not, but want some people with Chemistry/Geology experience to give their input. Thanks!
BTW, anyone who didn't know.. it is the ONLY diamond mine open to the public where you can keep what you find free of charge.. you just pay a daily admission of around 10 dollars a person.
If you have questions about the area or mine let me know and I will send you some information.

Some of my friends boast of shots going up to ten feet and I rarely exceed one foot. Also I have seen a lot of dudes in the movies jetting it out like they have a pneumatic pump spitting it out with a hundred psi. What is up?? And although the question might sound like a smartass one.. I am somewhat honest here, even though I laugh my *** off when talking to friends about it.6 AnswersMen's Health1 decade ago
