It really pisses me off when you are looking for a manual, Picture, Layout, and the information is tied to a cost or some other crap. Here it is Straight-up.
Many symptoms with parasitic drain on the battery, try disconnecting Fuse 38, it will only affect the Real Wiper which can intermittently fail and cause a death-power draw over a short time, even overnight.

Have you gone through a few batteries, only for it to come back? and maybe you shotgunned the alternator, even though they all checked out ok… ?

Try this and let me know how it went. 2004-navigator owners manual fuse layout pg 265 box is located in the Passenger side on the hinge side of the floorboards.

I am a Google Gmail partner providing Domain Driven Email boxes and GSuites, and various other names the changed to confuse the customer and we have been working with Google Services since at least 2013. Google has a very archaic way of invoicing our office but we went along with it and have been paying by invoice with a Check since the inception. Everyone we communicate with appears to be in another country and they have no clue of Western Business practices. If this company were in the US, it would be shut down or reorganized.

Somehow we did not receive an invoice from Google and there was a small period that went unpaid and we did not find out for months as then our Support team found out that this was happening when we could no longer login or update our current customers or add one.

I spent hours on the phone, wanting to pay by Credit card and I could not get hold of anyone to properly help. The account went into distress a few weeks!!!

In complete and utter frustration, I went on to my account and found that it had a way to pay by Credit Card, so I paid about $700 in now past due payments and thought I was good.

A few weeks later, when we were locked out, I called and was on the phone for at least 2 hrs, they said I had to pay by Bank Wire to keep the account open.

Finally, I did the Bank Wire, at a cost more than our profit for the month…. crazy. That was not where it ended. My bank wanted to have an address for the Bank Wire and other information that Google could not provide. I had to wait and call several numbers for Wells Fargo to get an answer. Finally, after about 3 hrs I got one and sent the money. They called me and said they could not take a credit card and had nothing to do with processing by credit card and that would be another division. I was shocked. So where is my $700?? It clearly shows they collected the money but they cannot apply the credit at all. I spoke to 3 managers with Not even a shred of satisfaction.

At that point I asked to be changed over to Credit Card so this would NEVER happen again. A few months later, my account went into delinquency again, my Credit Card would not charge (I have no balance, and I called the Credit Card company and got them on the phone with Google and Google said sorry…try another card. ). !!!!

OMG this made me even more upset, my Google bounced Credit Card works fine and continues to work fine but not on Googles system. For our accounting, this card was specifically for the Google system and I did not want to use my personal Credit Card for payment, but I did.

Some months later Google wrote me and said that I could use the other card when I spoke to them on the phone.

2-3 months go by and I keep getting phone calls from the Google team. I did not want to talk to them. Finally, I answered a light Friday night call.

They explained that the $692 they collected cannot be credited to my Google account or Credit Card account and I had to fill out a Bank Verification form.!!! You would not believe the form questions, bank, routing number, correct business, name, specific dates, etc. I had to open my articles of incorporation to find half the information!! Oh Man, I have never been put through such bad Customer Service.

Long story even longer, it took 5 or 6 different re-do’s of the form before they were able to accept it. Some weeks went by and on around Sept 10th.

The, what I thought was the last change that they required was something that was NOT on the form and I have NEVER been asked of, and that was the actual stamp of my deposit from the bank to be on the bottom of the form, which does not even have a place to put it, they just wanted the stamp. ahhhh finally, the person helping me, Milena, the supervisor, who was ok and she was just passing information on and was apologetic. You see she has to pass this on to a group that she does not have direct contact with so it is days before she can get answers back… as it it were 1970 all over again. I could not believe that Google, who makes Self-Driving cars, cannot credit a LONG TiME known customer $692 they knowingly paid by Credit Card. Does this make any sense to any you reading this???

This week, around the 10th of Sept 2017, I was wondering if i had received my

check yet and yesterday Sept 13 2017, I get a call from Milena, telling me they still cannot process the payment and now the people in the credit department have decided that I have to do the entire bank form all over again and they want to change the amount from $692.29 which it has been for ever as Google established the refund amount, to $687.53!!!!!!!!

Today, I am so upset and disappointed that a company could actually be so incompetent and have the WORST customer service on the planet. If there service was not so good and there was another company that provided the same service for my customers, I would have left with the first bank Invoicing issue.

As it stands, these people do not understand that we have a busy lives and when I bill out at and at $100/hr  I have already lost money dealing with Google’s archaic billing incompetent practices, along with the time to write this article. I hope this gets picked up and goes viral.

Note – From best I can recall, and there may be a few details that are not totally accurate, but the overall frustration and ridiculousness is still real.

So. many are buying guns, not realizing that they have to buy a box or a lock for it before they leave the store. Luckily, I knew that but I did buy a Speed Vault made by GunVault Model SV 500.

This is my rant about this product and how the company is reflected in it.

I bought the SV 500 and was amazed at how poorly written the user manual was. I deal with foreign written instruction manuals along with being a do-it-yourselfer your and you do not show enough pictures or describe how to mount the bottom thumbscrews.
I am amazed and certain that you get multiple calls ask how you are to put the holder and pivot bracket on, before you close it, 1/2 way open, or what. No picture, not real discussion, which it is the most moving part in your kit.
The other issue is how vague the pointing out of the learn and mute button is, not to mention a poor description of how to program the unit. It oozes of someone writing some basic information in English and a 3rd world country trying to translate it in a user manual…
If you do not get lots of calls, they probably figured it out after a frustrating time because most gun owners tend to be mechanically inclined, but that does not help how poorly written the manual is written.

I wrote the company and lets see what they have to say.

My Mother-in-law died 9 months ago and was buried December 14th, 2014,  and we buried her at the Park with the rest of her family in Westminster California. Her name was Hope Coleman.

Westminster Memorial park was in charge of the burial and the gravestone. The sales person said he submitted the paperwork a few days after her burial and we still do not have a grave marker for her. My wife is grieved over this.

Our family has grace and we have given multiple grace to the sales person and to the main office of the park, and they have since failed. We have had to send them the copies of the paperwork we filled out and sent to them 2 times as they have misplaced them.

Yesterday, Sept 9th, 2015 my wife visited her grave and found the headstone was still not in place. At the grave site she called and spoke to the salesperson and he asked again for the paperwork. The conversation did not go well as she said it was not acceptable.

Going forward, it is my suggestion to have your service and burial at another place and avoid this disorganized organization.

There is more but this is all I have time for.

HAVA CUP of Coffee?… Don’t most of us love that first cup in the morning. It is great, no it’s wonderful, and those that don’t just don’t get it.

I have been drinking 3-5 cups and more of coffee my whole adult life. Last year I was diagnosed with having Arterial Flutter, (affectionately known as AFib,  which annoying at best. You will be amazed on how many people have this and blow it off or do not get it diagnosed).

After several panic attacks and ER visits and stays for observation and thinking I was going to die, testing my reactions and trying some drugs to control it, not much was working well to keep it at bay. Under the care of Kaiser, I have been quite pleased with my Doctors and Nurse Practitioners, NPR Denise Middleton, Cardiologist Dr. Mark Timothy Deboer, Dr. David Cesario, M.D. Electro-cardiologist specialist in ablations.   
Daily, Doctors experiment on what they should do for you. You are their science experience and they have less than 15 minutes at a time to figure out what prescribe or do next. The old, “take two aspirins and call me in the morning” Why do you think the medical industry calls Doctors work a Practice? My opinion, Afib is one of the most illogical health issues on the planet. Hard to pin down a regiment that will work. You must be proactive and work with them, and use your own logic and give them solid information, so they can make better choices.

Early on, I was asked by my Doctor to stop drinking coffee, and I blew that off until about 40 days ago. I stopped drinking “cold turkey” and any symptoms, no headaches, a little tired, but thats it. Then I realized that I really did like that one cup in the morning, so I allowed myself one cup in the morning, none at night.

15 days into it, with LITTLE or NO  coffee, I have little or no symptoms of Afib, yes I am more tired, but that is ok. I have had better, less interrupted nights sleep than ever.

I had a PowerShot stapler for almost 10 years and every once and a while it jammed, no biggie.

Today, I had good memories of a quality produce and purchased a new one and price was not the determining factor. I also purchased the manufacture recommended staples. My task was to put up a few dozen posters.

Sadly, it jammed the 2nd poster I put up. After about 15 posters the back frame screw fell out as the nut probably feel out a few posters prior.

Needless to say I returned it to Lowe’s and will look for a new one that may be more reliable. I think this is both Lowe’s and the manufacturers concern.

I was disappointed when this happened and thought this would be a nice tool with just a little more integrity regarding design and assembly. One drop of Lock tight on the frame screw, I probably would not have returned it.

I hope that the manufacture gets this and does something about it.

I thought I would post this as it make perfect sense and it cannot hurt to follow it.

Heart Attack & Water

Something I didn’t know either! I asked my Doctor why do I and other people urinate so much at night time. Answer from my Cardiac Doctor = Gravity holds water in the lower part of your body when you are upright (legs swell).

When you lie down and the lower body (legs and etc) seeks level with the kidneys it is then that the kidneys remove the water because it is easier. This then ties in with the last statement.

I knew you need your minimum water to help flush the toxins out of your body, but this was news to me.
Correct time to drink water… Very Important. From A Cardiac Specialist!

Drinking water at a certain time maximizes its effectiveness on the body:

2 glasses of water after waking up – helps activate internal organs
1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal – helps digestion
1 glass of water before taking a bath – helps lower blood pressure
1 glass of water before going to bed – avoids stroke or heart attack

It has been quite some time now and like any good system that you use, if it works don’t tweak it much.

I have had my days where I have not juiced but I punish myself and eat less and double up on my juice and maybe change up my exercise.

Sugar is my #1 enemy, but I have been doing good and still weigh 187-189 consistently, and is still the 17LBS I lost when I did my Juicing reboot.

Remember, each person has different metabolic rates, that are affected by age, workouts, and types of foods you eat on a daily basis. It seems like it is easier to lose weight when you work at home or close to the office, or your work,  because you can control what you eat. Keep Raw Almonds, apples, and Carrots handy.

I find that eating 2 peanut butter filled celery sticks in the morning after my coffee really helps keep me focused and not hungry till about 10Am.
