SOURCE: what would happen if diesel fuel was put into my

The only thing that would cause that would be power or electric problem. If there indeed was diesel put in it it would have run like **** and smoked badly right away after it burned the fuel from the fuel lines. Cause diesel is heavier than gas it would pump directly into the engine causing it to ran badly within a couple f minutes. So it sounds like your batter has died, My reasoning is the alt. light has not been on and the normal life of the dealer battery is 3 to 5 years so try to jump star it if it runs ok with the cables on that's your problem any Auto parts store will test it for you for free. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: 2008 ford f350 superduty. Cranked up today for the

Sounds like there is either one of two problems here. The radio has shorted out or the power wire which holds the power when off is getting a bad connection. Sounds to me like the radio is shorted out on the chip where that wire connects because on the stock stereo systems they will not work if the wire is not getting power. What you can do is take a test light and ensure that one of the wires is power on all the time as long as there is one its the stereo. If you have a manual you will be able to locate the power on all the time wire but you can do it by checking them until you find it I am sure it will be working then you will need to replace the stereo I recommend ebay or car-parts.com for thebest deal on a used stock stereo or upgrading to a new stereo with a install kit from walmart.

How to I change the radio stations associated with each of the buttons?


In the vehicles I have owned, I've tuned to the station I wanted and held down the numbered or lettered button until I hear a beep sound letting me know that it has stored it correctly. Then you could tune to another station and hit the button you just set. If it goes to the station you wanted to preset, viola! So continue to tune to the next station you want and hold the button down that you want the station set to (ex: button 1=92.3, 2=104.5 etc.) Good luck.

There may be a SET button and when she finds the station she wants press the SET button, then the preset button she wants it on. Otherwise like you say, just hold the button down until it beeps or the sound comes back. Its hard to tell because different years and models did it different ways.

Set Radio Station Presets


Try just holding the button of choice down. In my Audi, when I had a factory head unit, to set for example, preset 2, I'd just tune to the station I wanted to program, and then hold down the number 2 preset button until the display stopped blinking. It was then preset.
