SOURCE: I have residual current draw on 1996 Ford

When checking a draw you have to wait to check till all modules have powered down including Gem module. This can take up to 30 min. Specs are 50 ma draw. To check get you a test light take off the postitive cable, " you can also use a meter", now you have to put the light in series withe the battery and cable. Clamp one side of test light to battery cable the other side to battery post WITH CABLE OFF THE WHOLE TIME. Now if you open doors turn any switches you will have to restart your 30min. then you can check and see if unplugging module, if that fixed problem. what we do is open the doors before, then take a screw driver and close the door latch so that you can get in and out of the car without turning something on

I have a 2008 ford edge, the DVD player had a disk that was stuck in it. i dropped the player and pulled the DVD. when i hooked it back up, the dash display says connection error, see dealer. ther is no...

How did you pull the DVD? My guess is one or two things; either there was an internal malfunction that prevented the DVD from ejecting and you made it worse by forcing the disc out, or there are multiple connections on the back and you may be missing one. Otherwise, the connector you know is good may have disconnected on the other end (if it isn't hardwired all the way to the control module) or something else got jarred loose while you were in the wiring. I'd take a good look at all the connectors behind the DVD player (not just the ones that connect to it) and look for something loose... otherwise you might need a new DVD player. If you have a multimeter and can verify the connector to the DVD player has power you can eliminate the likelyhood that it has disconnected closer to the control module.

How do you remove cd player 1996 acura tl

Disconnect the negative battery terminal to prevent
an accidental short circuit.
Using a small screwdriver, unclip the perimeter
of the radio trim bezel. Disconnect the climate
control and rear defroster wiring and remove
the bezel. Remove (4) Phillips screws securing
the factory head unit/trim bezel assembly.
Loosen (2) Phillips screws securing the back of
the head unit to the metal housing and slide the
unit out. (It is NOT necessary to remove the
screws securing the metal housing to the
bezel). Disconnect the wiring. (Fig. A)

I want to change the battery

Unless you Have AoolCodes DEALER IS A GOOD IDEA

Disconnecting/Connecting The Battery

Always stop the engine before disconnecting the battery negative lead and make sure the battery positive lead is isolated i.e. wrapped in a suitable cloth.

WARNING: Radio code saving devices must not be used when conducting work on air bag or fuel systems. It must be noted that, when using these devices, the vehicle electrical system is still live albeit with a reduced current flow.

NOTE: Before disconnecting the battery make sure that the radio receiver/cassette player/mini disc player and compact disc player keycodes are known and, that no data is required from the powertrain control module as battery disconnection will erase any fault codes and idle/drive values held in the Keep Alive Memory (KAM). It is not necessary to disconnect or remove electronic control modules.

Always disconnect the battery before commencing repair operations which require:
  • The vehicle to be jacked up
  • Work on the engine
  • Work underneath the vehicle
  • Arc welding
Alternatively a Radio Code Saver may be used. With the battery disconnected, a Radio Code Saver will allow sufficient current to pass to maintain the radio receiver/cassette player/mini disc player and compact disc player memory, operate the clock and supply the door operated interior lights while isolating the battery in the event of a short circuit.

Reconnecting the Battery

WARNING: If the battery has been on bench charge the cells may be giving off explosive hydrogen gas. Avoid creating sparks, and if in doubt cover the vent plugs or covers with a damp cloth.

Always make sure that all electrical systems are switched OFF before reconnecting the battery to avoid causing sparks or damage to sensitive electrical equipment.

Always reconnect the battery positive lead first and the negative last, ensuring that there is a good electrical contact and the battery terminals are secure.

Restart the clock (where fitted) and set it to the correct time.

Re-enter the radio receiver/cassette player/mini disc player and compact disc player keycodes and preset' frequencies, if known.

Following reconnection of the battery, the engine should be allowed to idle until it has reached normal operating temperature as the stored idle and drive values contained within the powertrain control module have been lost. Allow the vehicle to idle for a further three minutes . Drive the vehicle at constant speeds of approximately 48 km/h (30 mph), 64 km/h (40 mph), 80 km/h (50 mph), 96 km/h (60 mph) and 112 km/h (70 mph) for three minutes each. This may cause a driveability concern if the procedure is not carried out. This will allow the powertrain control module to relearn idle values.

Subaru 2001 Legacy Outback Changer plug lead

Hello, I will share a little tech tip with you... These instructions tell you to disconnect the HVAC (Heating,Ventalation,Air Conditioning) cables, they are a pain. All I do is, when you get to the point where you WOULD disconnect them, just take out the screws on either side of the HVAC control head and just bend the brackets out enough to remove the stereo, and when your going back together with it, just put one of the screws in one of the holes for the HVAC control head and put the screw driver on the screw and push the bracket with the screw driver to line up the holes and screw it in. Do the same with the other side and it's good as new. You really don't have to bend them out hardly at all. I hope this info helps...

  1. Remove front cover (A).

  1. Remove two screws (B) and then remove center panel (C) while disconnecting connector.

  1. Remove fitting screws, and slightly pull radio out from center console.
  2. Disconnect electric connectors and antenna feeder cord and then disconnect heater control unit.
Install in the reverse order of removal.

I have an early e46 with the cassette player in the front and the cd changer in the boot. Can I swap the head unit for one with a cd player in it, and do I need anything else ? Thanks

You can replace the old radio and cassette player with a new modern aftermarket dvd player gps navigation unit like this.
Car DVD BMW E46 Navigation System E46 DVD GPS Navi

It's with more features except navigation system, USB, iPod, AUX, SD, DVD player, rear view camera video input, and it's touch screen, easy operation.
