Check the fuses sometimes there is one on the back of the radio.
Why did you take the cable off?

I have a 2004 saturn l300 v6, my alternator went out, i didnt catch it until the battery had completely died, the battery is only 3 months old. just had the alternator replaced and it is now charging


have the battery charged and tested. GM alternators tend to take the battery with them when they die. A weak battery will make all the electronic stuff act strange. Make sure all the cables and connections are solid.

My headlights, horn, panel lights, electric door locks, and radio quit working, all at the same time.


  • JUST WENT THROUGHT THIS WITH MY DAUGHTERS CAR!! WOW WAS GONNA RIP EVERYTHING OUT , I CHECKED FUES!! ALL GOOD, SHE AHD NO HEADLIGHTS, TAIL LIGHTS, POWER LOCKS, RADIO OR BRAKE LIGHT OR HORN, SO I GOT TO THINKING THAT THIS JUST CANT BE A BAD GROUND, BUT DIDNT SEEM RIGHT. SO I GOT A BOOK TO LOOK AT THE WIRING, ACTUALLY I USED THE 1994 VERSION AND IN THAT THERE ARE 2 POSITIVE WIRES COMING FROM THE BATTERY, WELL ONE GOES TO STARTER AND FUSIABLE LINKS THE OTHER GOES TO THE FUSE BOX THAT SUPPLIES POWER TO ALL THAT WE NOT WORKING, WELL FOLLOW THE 2ND POWER LINE FROM THE BATTERY THAT GOES TO FUSE BOX, WELL AS YOU START TO FOLLOW IT THERE IS A PLUG THAT JOINS THE WIRE TO THE WIRE THAT GOES TO FUSE BOX, UNPLUG TURNS HEADLIGHTS ON ANT REPLUG BACK IN. IT WASNT MAKING A CONNECTION ANYMORE!!!

    FRED THE REASON I SAID TURN THE LIGHTS ON THEN REPLUG IN , IS THAT YOU WILL SEE THE LIGHTS COME ON AND HEAR THE CHIME OF LEAVING THE LIGHTS ON WHEN YOU PLUG BACK IN. WHEN I LOOKED AT THE DIAGRAM IS WHEN I REALIZED THAT THAT 2ND WIRE SUPPLIED THE POWER TO THE FUSE BOX FUSES THAT IN TURN WOULD OPERATE EVERYTHING THAT WASNT WORKING. WHE YOU UNPLUG THAT PLUG, ITS ABOUT THE SIZE OF YOUR PALM, LOOK AT THE CONTACTS INSIDE AND MAKE SURE THEY ARE NOT CORODE. IF SO BUY SOME CLEANER AND APPLY. I HAD UNPLUGGED THIS PLUG ABOUT 6 MONTHS AGO WHEN REPLAVING THE BATTER AND HAD PUT THE GOOP STUFF IN THERE FOR THAT REASON. JUST THINK IF ALL THAT STUFF IS NOT WORKING AND YOUR FUSES ARE GOOD? YOU JUST AINT GETTING POWER TO THE FUSE BOX WHICH THEN THERE IS NO POWER TO EACH ITEM, HOPE THIS HELPS ANY QUESTIONS FEEL FREE, SINCE I SEE THIS IS AA BIG PROBLEM YET NO ONE ANSERED WITHA FIX

The battery was disconnected for about 2 months while i was away. i reconnected it and tried to enter the code to start the sound system, but get an error message. is there a way to deal with this?


Is the system after market or the factory system?
There is however a little trick that most likely will work for you: Remove the sides of the trim along the drivers side to access the back of the radio, then unplug the antenna, enter the radio code, then plug the antenna back in. If your care is still under warranty and you prefer to have it done at the dealer, there shouldn't be a problem, otherwise if you don't, you might want to be very nice as they usually charge $190+ to do this.
Otherwise you'll have to call the dealer to get the activation code.. in order to get the correct serial you'll need to pry off the right side molding along the center console (the wood/marble grain looking accent molding) and up near the radio side was a sticker with a serial number on it. Call any acura dealer, give them the serial number and they give you the code.
Note: Sometimes the Radio and the navigation codes are written down on the fuse box cover, the under the hood. Just lift the cover and look below to see if it's there.

Aftermarket lights installed, seems to be draining my battery


first disconnect lights and check to see if they were problem if no change then need to find out why alt went bad in the first place[ground bad shorts in system] if you live by auto zone or advance auto they can test ur alt to make sure new one is not defective and can check battery for same if good need to start checking grounds and wire harnesses

Will start but not turn over


big cluster of grounds on driver side right in front of door next to fuse box on wall. it may be wet here too since it is a cabrio. My jetta has a sunroof,the drain tube was loose and in this area, I knocked one of these grounds loose reattaching the drain tube and didnt notice what I had done. Tried to start car nd it wouldnt crank at all. was fn around for like 45 minutes and found if I held the driver side window buttom when I crancke the key to start it would crank and run untill I let go of the window button ,weird. Any way check those grounds I bet the are corroded
