Question about Cars & Trucks

I have an in dash vehicle stereo, no power to it after changing vehicle batteries. Is there a reset button in the stereo. Model # 3L3T-18C815-AA. Fuses are fine.

Changed vehicle batteries, now no power to stereo. Vehicle fuses are fine. Does the stereo itself have a reset button or an internal fuse?

Some have internal fuses some have a fuse on the back if you have wired the battery incorrect and the radio was connected to the battery terminals you have probably fried the stereo.

SOURCE: rear brake lights inop...3rd brake light works fine...

Switch module in steering column will need to be replaced or the brake switch itself at the pedal. There was actually a recall for the pedal switch that came out in early 02 Usually the switch in the column about $125.00 at the aftermarket parts stores

SOURCE: power windows and sunroof do not work, fuses

did you replace the car battery just before the faults occured?
If so then with some cars the windows and sunroof needs to be programmed in the simular way to how new key fobs are programmed

SOURCE: My car battery keeps getting

You need to put an AMP Meter in series with either battery cable, and then look for a circuit not timing out,after you remove the key.
May take 20 minutes.
Anything over 40 Milli-Amps is too much
Start pulling fuses one at a time, to find circuit, then you need a wiring schematic of complete vehicle to find problem.

I always purchase shop manuals and wire diagrams, as soon as I buy a new vehicle. Will need owners manual -for fuses.

Why does clock reset itself each time I start the vehicle?

sometimes if the battery is weak enough that could cause a drain and suddenly the memory fails and then it resets to 12 oclock.Also the stereo system uses two 12 volt positive feeds one is a constant that many times is fused by the same fuse that feeds the lighter socket but also many times only one of the fuses on the fuse chart will mention the stereo when in fact another fuse is feeding a different circuit in the stereo.

You could have weak charging/starting system connections connections due to rotted/corroded battery/alternator/starter/engine block ground posts/connections or the cables could even be rotted internally that connect up to those connections.Again weak or poor grounds or loose connections cause a drain on the whole system that could over draw some circuits causing them to temporally loose their proper operating voltage/power.

My dash lights and stereo light won't turn on. Fuse maybe?

Most likely the fuse, even though the stereo and dash lights are powered from a different source, the lights in the stereo are connected to the inst pnl circuit with the dash lights (normally).

2007 Pontiac Torrent: Radio drains battery when off.

hmm... well normally that line will also power the clock but i cant see it drawing that much power :/ If you take that fuse out does it still flatten your battery? what about immobilizer? or car alarm? but whatever it is... you may have to divert power to ignition instead of accessories so that it only uses power when the key has been turned to 'on' position... but there's definitely something using power there.... I'm curious!

Turn the vehicle on. The engine does not need to be running but the ignition should be on to power the stereo.

  • 2 Press the "Source" or "Power" button to turn the unit off.

  • 3
    Press and hold down the "Minute" button (located to the left of the GM vehicle stereo's display. Some models require pressing and holding the left arrow button if no "Minute" button is present.) Release the button once the display shows "0000."

  • 4
    Press the "Minute" button (or left arrow) to set the value of the third and fourth digits of the anti-theft code. Release the button once the proper value for the last two digits is displayed.

  • 5
    Press the "Hour" button (or right arrow button) to set the first and second digits of the code. Release the button once the four-digit code is accurately displayed.

  • 6
    Press the "Mode" button to lock in the code you set. Turn the stereo deck on by pressing the "Source" or "Power" button to complete the reset.

    Have 2010 Silverado. battery goes dead randomly. had batt. alt and voltage regulator checked and all is good.

    With a multimeter, check for parasitic loss. YOu can google how to do that and it will reveal any power losses when the vehicle is at rest.
    Simply a guess here, but I see the year of your vehicle and that might coincide with the failure of any alarm system backup battery, often fitted inside any alarm siren. If you do indeed have such a thing fitted to your vehicle, and if it hasn't been changed in a few years, then try disconnecting it. What often happens is the backup battery in the siren reaches the end of it's life and can no longer store electricity. It begins to draw more current from the starting battery to top itself off, but it can't top itself off any longer, so it continues until the vehicle's starter battery is drained.

    Anyway, that's just a guess. Do a parasitic drain test. You should be looking at no more than 0.03 amps. If much higher than this, then pull any alarm sirens off, then recheck. Then pull the stereo fuse and recheck. Keep pulling fuses until you find the one which brings the voltage down to that figure, then you've found your culprit.
