Re: I can't get the led read out to brighten?

Does the dimmer switch in your truck make nthe light in the radio go up and down? if not the instalation was not done properly and someone left off the dimmer wire. If that does work and the brightness does go up and down, you may have an LED or Two out on the radio. Good Luck

Something keeps draining my battery, but we can't figure out what it is. I've been told by two garages that I need to replace a computer which will cost $1-$2K and I can't afford it.

fit an amp meter in the ground cable between that cable and the battery terminal and get an idea of the current draw
to drain over night it will be a significant reading
take that reading along to an accredited auto electrician and see if it is a rectifier problem, diode problem or ECM problem
The mechanics talk new ECM (computer) but you can get good units from the wreckers of the same car as yours for well less than what you have been quoted
The job you have is to get the current reading when the car is shut down as that will point to a failed unit

Hi I have a used DEH-46DH player that died instantly about 2 yrs after I put it in my truck. There is no illumination of the faceplate nor any sounds (clicks or buzzing) from the chassis. I have checked...

You have to check is there is any fuse in the back panel of you player. if there, then check fuse is it faulty . Normally this fuse will be near the connecton socket normally hide by the connector. Also try to clean the connections of the frond pannel and in the unit with a cloth. some times improper contact of frond panel can couse these problem. If the fuse is ok then there problem with the display section of your player. As it is FL display, there will be a high voltage inverter circuit in side the player. Need good skill and knowledge in electronics to deal with such circuits. If you feel the problem is inside the player try to consult some one more experienced in it.

I just bought a new car that has a xtreme sound 10 disc changer.

If the fm modulator is wired correctly, open door on changer and push small reset button at the bottom (unit must have power to changer).
