Check the driver side door as well as the passenger door and there should be a button on the inside were the hinges are located and when the doors are shut the doors push this button and it will shut off the radio if car is shut off and when opening the door this will let out this button turning the radio off...that's just one thing... there could be a short or wire touching a ground some where.... Hope this helps....

Find the fuse box and remove the radio fuse .it should either be numbered or named. and the fuse box is under the bonnet or under the dashboard.but check that the fuse you remove is ONLY for the radio and not other operations also.

SOURCE: 1998 volvo v70 radio displays off

Turn the key to position ONE (turn one position from where the key is inserted). The radio should be left on. Make sure the a/c blower is in the off position. There should be no dash lights on. It should reset somewhere between two to eight hours. After at least two hours it should read CODE again.

If you cut the power, or the battery goes dead it won't reset.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: blower stays on when car

If you pulled the 10 amp fuse in the I/P fuse block and the blower still worked than the the blower motor module is most likely the problem. It is fed by a 30 amp fus4e in the fuse block under the rear seat. That fuse is always hot and always supply power to the blower motor module. If you pull that fuse and the blower stops than it's pretty likely the blower module is the problem.

The blower module is located near the blower motor. It is usually held in place with 2 screws and will have four or five wires at the connector.

SOURCE: the car won't start; lights,

Check the starter and the starter relay or fuse. A client of mines car was doing the same thing, it ended up being two issues, the starter not working anymore, and a relay that was bad. If I am not mistaken everything should be labeled in the fuse box under the hood and will tell you where the fuse/ relay is for your vehicle

SOURCE: how to disconnect alarm on s type jag? When trying to start car the alarm starts and kills the engine

if you look under the dash to the left of the brake pedal... you should see your fuse panel... above the there should be a black or gray box w/ two sets of wires coming from it ... both sets of wires have inline fuses... try pulling out either of those fuses one at a time , ie. pull one fuse try to start the car if the alarm still goes off replace that fuse and try the other one... this should disable the alarm on your car.

Had to unplug battery cables so it will not kill my battery My R500 fan will not stop running after car is off please help


Hi Ralph

Disconnecting battery cables could also cause troubles with clock & radio & other devices as they reset & you may have to re enter security code for radio etc.
Better to find the fuse for the fan or a connector point between fan & wiring harness.

Your Fan is probably continuing to run because the engine temperature is still high.
Does it eventually turn off after a length of time?
If not then the temperature sensor may be bad or the actual engine is overheating.
How is the Radiator Water level? Or Coolant? or coolant overflow container?

Cheers

1993 BMW E36 325i odometer and clock won't turn off and kills my battery


fit a battery isolator inside the car under the dash on the battery earth is the cheapest soloution.Or a wiring diagram to trace the wires to locate the fault which i suspect could be on the radio wiring where 2 feeds are used one a permanant 12v feed and one a switchable feed via ignition switch causing a backfeed if done wrong .

2006 gxp wont start due to anti theft system what to do?


You can't reset it yourself. It takes a scanner at your Local Dealership to do it. People do it, (new battery or dead battery) everyday unaware that doing so can and usually does, arm the theft system and either kills the radio or the whole car. To me it's just another built-in defect that requires dealer assistance. It's a buzz kill I know, and it probably won't be long until car owners won't even have access to the engine compartment. They will need your VIN, and then they call HQ to get the code for your radio, which will also bring your whole car back to life.

I don't know what is wrong with my car the belt just recently broke and we had to replace it but before we did that the battery died when we were driving and we killed the battery trying to get the car...


sounds like it may be a bad alternator. jump start the car and if it gets going disconnect the negative battery cable and if it dies you have a bad alternator. It may die as soon as you unplug the jump start cables.
