Question about 2002 Oldsmobile Silhouette

1 Answer

My 02 silhouette worked just fine until the other day we were on a long trip we had the fm transmitter plugged in one of the 2 cigarette lighter ports and the phone charger in the other worked just fine then we parked and used the power sliding door to let kids out. The power ports went out n no longer maintained power it work for a second then blank at the same time power slide door went out. Later that night noticed none of the overhead interior lights worked either. Dash lights n radio lights were fine. Checked most all fuses n they looked fine. Don't have the money to take it in so most all fixes are diy.

I cannot play music through fm modulator by usb but it works i phone/


Select free channel or frequency on your radio and align it with the one on fm modulator depending on the type of radio used. Make sure the modulator has the power on. Does the cigarette lighter work, if not check it. make sure the radio receiver/ transmitter component or antenna connected as this need frequency to produce sound like a radio.

How do I hook-up satellite radio


Although it's about $50, this is the best FM transmitter I've found so far. I use it primarily with my MP3Player, but the concept is the same for your satellite radio. It should have a 1/8" audio plug.
Simply plug this little adapter in your cigarette lighter, plug the 1/8" cable between your Satellite radio and the adapter, and tune your radio to the station on the adapter (you can choose another station if there is already something playing on its default station).
This works for me. I tried other brands and they all eaither had poor reception or died within a month or so. This one has been working for me for well over a year now GOgroove FlexSMART X2 Wireless In Car Bluetooth FM Transmitter with...

it could be the the starter solenoid or starter itself that is the problem.you said it started when you started using your fm transmitter have you tried not using it to see if it starts working correctly for a few days.if it works normally then this is the problem.try another outlet if you have one to see if the problem starts again.

More than likely overheated the wiring going to the lighter as well and burned it off. If you pull the lighter socket out you should see if it did. Simply solder it back on and be careful not to overload it again.

Cigarette lighter stopped working


Your post is just a tad bit confusing. In most cars these days they have a ciggarette lighter as well as a power port or two.

Is your cigarette light port and your power port, in your eyes, the same thing? If yes, and you've checked the fuse and "it appears to be fine" then I would say that you have a short in your wiring that for some reason isn't tripping the fuse. Unlikely though.

I believe in one car I worked on had two different fuses that went to the ciggarette ligher. Maybe just maybe you have a few different fuses running your ports and you checked some of the fuses but not all of them.

Most cars have fuse boxes in the following locations: Engine Bay, Glove Box, Drivers or passengers side kick panel, trunk.

The most likely spots to check for a fuse box is to the left of your legs while sitting in the drivers seat and underneath the hood.

Hope this helps out,

Mazda 5 2007 model - Car radio


hello
Some of the factory radios have a plug on the back of the radio. You have to get the plug from your local stereo shop. That can get expensive. I use a I-trip its the cheap way to do it and you don't have wires to hide it all wireless. hope this helps.
