Amp Light Won't Stay On

Installed the amp as per instruction manual yesterday. The power indicator light came on during the first test, but began to dim out. Again, without cycling the cars power, the light came on and dimmed again. It continued to do this, all while outputting no signal to the subs. When the car was powered on and off, the amp light will not come on anymore. All the wires were unplugged and replugged, but still no response.

    I'm going to probably say its with the wiring, because this is the second amp that started doing this. About a week ago, my old amp started having this problem. So I took it back to the retailer, I had purchased a four year warranty with it, and they replaced the amp, didn't really look into it. I hooked up the new one, and the same problem arose. I checked the wiring, and the 12 volt seems to be fine, I'm assuming it is something with the ground. I'll post anything I find. Thank you for your help.

    It was the 12-Volt in. I went out with a voltmeter and checked the REM and got approx. 12 volts to ground. Then I checked the battery and was getting only about 1 volt. I found a loose connection leading into a fuse. Tightened up the connection and was good to go. Thank you very much....

I had the same problem installing my amp as well. My solution was a bad ground. I have an S-10 so finding the proper place to ground was tough, I now have it grounded to the drivers seat under the torque bolt.

Sounds as if you either have some bad wiring probably on the 12volt side or a major problem with the amp. Seeing as how it's new I'd be taking it back to the retailer. I just hope you didn't reverse the polarity of the 12 volts or maybe put 12 volts up a speaker output. That could mess with the warranty somewhat. Are you sure you have the 12 volts connected to a good solid supply and the earth a good one too. I always ensure any heavy drain equipment is connected directly to the battery with heavy duty wiring and well fused. BMW

Stunt copter won't sync


I presume you have lights & sound on the controller when you turn it on - fourteen quick beeps and then a different toned fifteenth beep. The screen lights (blue). Insert the battery (lettering facing up toward the helo fuselage unitl it's seated all the way - an LED inside the fuselage, visible from behind, quick flashes and then begins a slower blinking.

Once the helo battery is inserted, turn on the controller, which starts the aforementioned beeping. On the last controller beep the helo's LED will stay lighted, indicating the helo & controller are synched.

I had a problem making sure the battery was inserted all the way into the helicopter. You'll know it's inserted properly when the LED inside the helo flashes.

Error code e01


do the following steps: God bless you
To start test program, press and hold both POWER SCRUB PLUS and RINSE & HOLD program buttons, then turn unit on by pressing ON/OFF button. When program buttons are released, lights above them will flash. To end test program, press ON/OFF button.To check program indicator lights (POWER SCRUB PLUS, REGULAR WASH and RINSE & HOLD), press and hold each program button. When REGULAR WASH program button is pressed, CLEAN light also comes on.
To start testing, press both POWER SCRUB PLUS and RINSE & HOLD buttons a second time. When testing has ended and a fault was detected, the following indicator lights will be lit:
POWER SCRUB PLUS = Heater fault
REGULAR WASH = Water filling fault (over or under filling)
RINSE & HOLD = NTC (temperature sensor) fault ? note circulation motor stops shortly after it started during an NTC fault
To check for heater, high limit or flow switch problems, start testing until heating starts. Using a meter with a current coil, measure current going into dishwasher. If current is ~ 11 A, then heater, high limit and flow switch are OK. If current stays at ~ 1.5-2 A, then heater, high limit or flow switch are faulty.
If water level switch (f1) has failed (opened), REGULAR WASH light will come on and unit will continually fill and drain where testing won't be completed. If flow switch (e5) has failed (opened), water won't heat (to 150?F) and water won?t stop circulating. If NTC probe (f2/f4) has failed (opened), RINSE & HOLD light will come on immediately and testing will end shortly after water has started circulating.
If more than one fault occurs, more than one light will be lit.

Year old Bosch SHU33A0UC won't start. Lights on


Light's on mean you have power.

Initiate the self test program by doing the following -

To start test program, press and hold both POWER SCRUB PLUS and RINSE & HOLD program buttons, then turn unit on
by pressing ON/OFF button. When program buttons are released, lights above them will flash. To end test program, press
ON/OFF button.
To check program indicator lights (POWER SCRUB PLUS, REGULAR WASH and RINSE & HOLD), press and hold each
program button. When REGULAR WASH program button is pressed, CLEAN light also comes on.
To start testing, press both POWER SCRUB PLUS and RINSE & HOLD buttons a second time. When testing has ended
and a fault was detected, the following indicator lights will be lit:
POWER SCRUB PLUS = Heater fault
REGULAR WASH = Water filling fault (over or under filling)
RINSE & HOLD = NTC (temperature sensor) fault – note circulation motor stops shortly after it started
during an NTC fault
To check for heater, high limit or flow switch problems, start testing until heating starts. Using a meter with a current coil,
measure current going into dishwasher. If current is ~ 11 A, then heater, high limit and flow switch are OK. If current stays
at ~ 1.5-2 A, then heater, high limit or flow switch are faulty.
If water level switch (f1) has failed (opened), REGULAR WASH light will come on and unit will continually fill and drain
where testing won't be completed. If flow switch (e5) has failed (opened), water won't heat (to 150ºF) and water won’t stop
circulating. If NTC probe (f2/f4) has failed (opened), RINSE & HOLD light will come on immediately and testing will end
shortly after water has started circulating.
If more than one fault occurs, more than one light will be lit.

Let me know what you figure out. I can repair these boards most of the time.

The Air bag light came on solid


If you want your air bag to work, you should take the vehicle to a shop for service. This light indicates it probably won't deploy in an accident.
