You will need to download the latest sound card drivers for your pc. You can go to softpedia.com or download.com or many other sites.

You can also go to control panel, performance & maintenance, system, hardware, and finally device manager. Then expand the list, look for your audio card or sonic program and update drivers from here.

Radio stopped working now dash lights stay on 09 focus


With the parking lamps ON, the instrument panel dimmer switch uses electronic circuitry to provide a variable pulse width modulated (PWM) output to the instrument panel and all applicable switches depending on the driver-controlled level of intensity, The dash lights stay on with headlamp switch off ?
Have checked the fuse's for the Radio ?
Visual Inspection Chart Mechanical Electrical
  • Audio unit
  • Compact disc (CD)
  • Antenna
  • Battery junction box (BJB) fuse 11 (30A) (subwoofer amplifier)
  • Central junction box (CJB) fuse(s):
    • 31 (20A) (audio unit hot at all times)
    • 41 (7.5A) (audio unit hot in RUN/ACC) (early build)

Do you know where the central junction box Is ?

Pinpoint Test A: The Audio Unit Is Inoperative/Does Not Operate Correctly
Normal Operation The audio unit receives voltage at all times through circuit 29-MD15 (OG/BK), voltage in RUN/ACC through circuit 75-MD15 (YE/GN), and ground through circuit 91-MD15 (BK/GN). The audio unit is operational with the key in RUN or ACC.
    Possible Causes
  • Fuse
  • Circuit 29-MD15 (OG/BK) open
  • Circuit 75-DA4 (YE/GN) open
  • Circuit 75-MD15 (YE/GN) open
  • Circuit 91-MD15 (BK/GN) open
  • Audio unit
  • Can you pull the radio out , to check power and grounds at the radio connector's if fuse's are Ok .

2001 Cadillac DeVille RPMs revving dying


battery not charging , means the charging system is not working , Doesn't mean the battery is bad . The charging system on your vehicle is computer controlled , If the BCM doesn't see the correct voltage , it will raise the idle RPM to over come any load on the system . Probably has DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored in the BCM or PCM , These codes do not always turn on the money light ( check engine ) . Your best bet , take it to the Cadillac dealer , auto zone or any of those has no clue about this . Oh also it will shut down systems . http://www.esghotwire.com/0213_Pit.pdf

BATTERY NOT CHARGING - 7
The IPC illuminates the BATTERY NOT CHARGING - 7 indicator in the DIC when the PCM detects a malfunction with the generator output. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the PCM requesting illumination.

Electrical Load Management
The power management function is designed to monitor the vehicle electrical load and determine when the battery is potentially in a high discharge condition. This is accomplished by using a high accuracy battery voltage reading as an indicator of battery discharge rate. The following six levels of load management will execute in the load management control algorithm when there is a high discharge condition:
The first action requests a vehicle idle speed increase to the powertrain control module (PCM) in order to raise alternator output.
The second action requests a greater vehicle idle speed increase to the PCM in order to raise alternator output.
The third action begins to shed vehicle loads in an attempt to remedy the heavy discharge condition.
The fourth action requests another vehicle idle speed increase to the PCM in order to raise further the alternator output.
The fifth action begins to shed further vehicle loads in an attempt to remedy the heavy discharge condition.
If the above five corrective actions fail, the sixth action of power management further sheds loads in a final attempt to remedy the high discharge condition.
Loads subject to reduction include the following:
• The A/C clutch
• The heated mirrors
• The heated seats
• The rear defog
• The HVAC blowers
The power mode master (PMM) calculates the battery temperature, voltage and charging rate at all times while the engine is running. The PMM calculates the battery temperature by factoring in:

2001 ford focus


If your Ford Focus is not starting, and you know the battery and alternator are good, the problem could lie in the ignition system. The ignition switch is a whole cylinder inserted into the steering column that connects to the starter motor. When you change an ignition switch, you are also replacing the key.

  1. Remove the dashboard panel below the steering column in your car; it should be screwed in place. Remove the steering column's upper cover by releasing its clips with a flat-head screwdriver.
  2. Look for the audio control switch---a small device sticking out of the steering column that acts like a remote control. If one exists, release the switch's plastic locking tang with the screwdriver, and unplug the electrical connector to remove the switch.
  3. Loosen the steering column by releasing the locking lever, and remove the steering column's lower cover by pulling out the screws with the screwdriver.
  4. Use your ignition key to turn the switch to the left---the position that would activate the accessories but not start the car. Insert the screwdriver into the hole in the top of the cylinder to depress the detent spring, and pull out the cylinder with the key inside.
  5. Insert the new key into the new ignition switch, and line up the switch inside the steering column so it's in the same place the old switch was in when you removed it. Make sure the detent locks into place; then turn the switch so it's in the "Off" position.
  6. Replace all the covers and panels you removed to access the cylinder, along with the audio control switch, if applicable, in reverse order of

Things You'll Need:
  • Small flat-head screwdriver
  • Ignition switch and key

Tips & Warnings
  • Older Ford Focus models may have a different method of removing and changing the ignition switch. Check an automotive guide for your particular year and model.
  • Always disconnect the negative (black) battery cable before working on the ignition or any other electrical component of your car.

I hope helped with this (remember rated this help) Good luck.
