I recently bought an iPad Air, and I'd like to use Kinkoo portable charger which I bought from: http://www.ikinkoo.com/shop/portable-charger/kinkoo-infinite-one-8000mah.html to charge it. I found Kinkoo can charge my iPad rapidly, only cost a few hours to charge it from 5% to 100%. Works perfectly than I expected.

SOURCE: Think there is a battery drain somewhere

Their is possibly a short. I would first isolate the problem. Disconnect the CD player and radio. If you can disconnect it then remove the radio fuse.

Start and drive the car for 15 minutes or so. Shut it off, and let it sit for a while. Then go out and start the car. Repeat this until you are sure that your problem is with the radio or wiring.

If The car fails to start and is having a repeat of the problem you have a parasidic draw on the battery from somewhere.

look at the fuses first. should be on the left side panel by your knees. If there isnt a fuse panel there check the one under the hood.

When you disconnected the battery, you tripped the alarm which locked down everything. In your owners manual, look under the security or alarm system. It will tell you how to disarm your particular alarm system. If I am not mistaken on these you put the key in the drivers door and lock and unlock it 2-3 times. If you do not have the owners manual, you can contact dodge and they will walk you through it.

Short draining the battery, removed the 5 amp fuse for backup, solved the problem with the short but no radio or clock memory and no Radio volume. Where could my problem be?


Try eliminating radio from power system by removing fuse behind radio or positive supple to radio. Replace backup fuse and check if drain still happens. If so, your radio may have internal power short and needs to be replaced.If not, shorts maybe along the the supply lines after the fuse.

leaving the radio on all night would not cause the battery to drain away like this providing its a good one .try disconnecting the battery overnight and see if it still drains as sometimes a battery can drain flat on its own which is caused by sulphation across the internal plates in the cells ,then if if it starts the next moring the battery is ok ,so next is to discoinnect the alternator large terminal off the alternator and try that and if it starts the following day renew the alternator as a rectifying diode is down running battery flat ,if still a proble then out comes the tester to look for a relay that has the contacts stuck together or the favourite boot light but this is a pick up truck so i would suspect the alternator

Radio shuts off


Security Code (Theft-Deterrent) required or Fuse blow. Recently unplugged the battery? or any work in there?

Theft-Deterrent Feature
THEFTLOCK is designed to discourage theft of your radio. Your vehicle has a “built-in” theft-deterrent feature on each radio that is automatic -- there is no programming required. The radio in your vehicle cannot be used in any other vehicle. When the radio was originally installed in your vehicle at the factory, it stored the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).

Each time the ignition is turned on, the VIN is verified. If the vehicle’s VIN does not match the VIN stored in the radio, THEFTLOCK will be activated and the audio system will not play. If the radio is removed from your vehicle, the original VIN in the radio can be used to trace the radio back to your vehicle.

To read the similar articles.


Instrument Panel Fuse Block (driver's side)
I suggest check in your Catera Owners Manual the FUSES position 6 and 26 for RADIO.

Also, other experts comment that, when servicing the vehicle with the VIN you entered, the following diagnosis might be helpful if the vehicle exhibits the described symptoms.

Condition / Concern:
Radio inoperative with key on, auto door lock feature disabled, a/c compressor does not engage and DTC U1255 stored in the radio. Radio may work in rap or accessory until the door is opened.

Recommendation / Instructions:
Cause: Clamp 15A, fuse #10, 10 amp fuse blown to the BCM/PZM, terminal A11. This fuse is normally powered in run and not during cranking. When this fuse is blown, the BCM acts as though it is in the crank mode with the key on. The BCM turns the radio off via CLASS 2 and inhibits auto door lock operation. The HVAC control head inhibits a/c compressor operation.

CORRECTION:
1. Replace the 10AMP #10 fuse.
2. Check the heater water pump located at the right wheel well area for a leak. Also, check the auxiliary pump located on the left side of the radiator support for a leak. If either pump is leaking, coolant may be dripping onto a connector for this fused circuit which may cause a short to ground condition.
3. If both pumps are okay, install in-line fuses rated less then the fuse in question for each component affected to isolate the failed circuit.

Models: (97, 98, 99, 00, 01 Cadillac Catera)


Hope this help (remember comment and rated this).

Pulled a fuse and put it back in then airbag light came on


Record your radio presets, then remove the negitive battery cable to reset the ecu/bcm and it might take care of the light. im guessing it set a open/short code for the bcm when you pulled the fuse. By removing the negitive battery cable for 5 mins you will reset the ecu/bcm .

Starter/Fuel Pump fuse, or the Relay Fuse blow


the fuel pump comes on when you turn the key on the starter comes on when you turn all the way to start so i would think the short is in the fuel pump if it blows by just turning the key on
