Question about Motorola Talkabout T5720 (7 Channels) 2-Way Radio

Staying keyed up after button release

The unit seems to stay keyed up after pushing the button and then releasing. When powered up, the unit will receive normally, but once it is keyed up and then released, it continues to transmit, but no more voice audio can be heard and the unit is unable to receive until power cycled. The light also stays on after the button is released and the other radio still hears the slight static associated with the faulty radio transmitting but voice can no longer be transmitted after release.

I have never seen this problem before, check if the VOX is activated, this could cause to transmit the radio, but the voice must be transmited. check if the Accesory connector is not dirty, clogged or damaged

Starter staying engaged and running with key off

This is usually due to one of two things:

  1. The solenoid spring in the starter is broken, not retracting the starter gear when the key is released.
  2. The starter gear is binding in the flywheel (flex plate) and not releasing after releasing the key.

The door latch button doesn't release the latch to open the door. It just goes all the way back when you push it, as if the mechanism is broken.

hi, if the door release latch is eaven from both sides and it is pivoting in and out with out staying in, i would suspect of the interlock switch assembly(this goes to a mmc5000 m.w. oven).00078674.jpg
but if it's not eaven or staying in then door latch or door actuator are suspect.00291855.jpg 00018565.jpg all these parts go to a mmc5000 but i am using it as examples, if you have the model number for yours try and you can get prices for what ever you are going to need for the repair.

My car will start but the gear wont come out of park

Sounds like a bad brake switch. It has a shift interlock system that requires power from the brake switch to move the shifter.

Moving maxi cosi to another car

I assume that you mean the Maxi Cosi Priorifix?
At the top of the leg (that extends to the floor of your car) there is a button (which, if connected to the Isofix points will be red) push this button in as far as it will go and the seat will release from the Isofix points.

I hope this helps.
