The surges at idle could be a number of problems ranging from anything. if at all possible take it to a mechanic and have him or her run an obd diagnostic utility on it the surges could be from fouling spark plugs 02 censors....etc even a leaky gasket allowing water in the fuel will cause surger maybe even a fuel filter issue. hard to tell without any hands on with the vehicle.

When i start the vehicle with remote it stars but shut off right away

There are feedbacks to the remote controller unit and if there is fault of feeback from the ignition pulse, the handbrake or the RPM then the remote system can shut down.
So check the feedback from these sections to the unit.
Also check the idling speed as it must be more to sustain the engine idling and iff the AC is also powered. If not reset and retune the engine to idle with ease.

How do you set the time on an 2000 dodge durango ?

Make sure your car is in the "ACC" or "ON" position, and hold down the "TIME" button on the face of the radio until the time starts blinking. Press "TIME" until the hours start blinking, then use the "TUNE" knob to change the hours. Press the "TIME" button once more to change to minutes, and use the "TUNE" knob to change the minutes once they have started blinking. Afterwards, press any other button on the radio to exit programming mode. Hope this helps!

How do i reset idle on a qr20 nissan primera 2004


The "idle speed control valve" also known as "idle air control valve”. If this has not been looked at, try cleaning or replacing it. This will not always generate a fault in the E.C.U.but if faulty or dirty(sticking)it will give you erratic idling and high C O readings. So it is suggested to look is the Idle Speed Control Valve, which predominantly helps smooth engine speed under slight load and when slowing down at lights.The valve in question often gets clogged with carbon, and while it is controlled by the engine management computer the buildup of carbon can affect its ability to operate correctly. It's usually a fairly easy process to locate remove and clean the valve. It's the cheapest place to start and there's a good chance it will fix the problem.The air flow meter (or sensor) would induce a diagnostic fault code in the engine's computer if it were to have a problem. This may not always be the case however which makes it that much trickier to diagnose. There should be test procedures to conduct on the air flow metre to confirm a fault, so a more definite diagnosis (rather than a could be this, could be that scenario) is needed here.
I would recommend taking the car to a Nissan agent, as they have probably dealt with this issue before. Expect a higher hourly charge, but they should have the background and specialised equipment to quickly pinpoint the fault.
Idle control on the road is different to idle control at standstill. With no load, the butterfly plate in the throttle allows sufficient air to bypass when it's closed to maintain a constant idle speed.
This is a setting that should not be touched once set from the factory. Generally an idle fault is just that, a fault, no adjustment will solve the problem.

Let us know if you have something more to know else accept the suggestion.

Need help wiring A 15'' alpine type r duel voice coil to a 1400 watt Crunch amp.If this amp is even compatable, When i hooked it up my self the sub made the surge light on my amp come on after like 10min...

That would suggest a short between the pos and neg on the amp, it shouldn't get hot, if the surge light came on it must be a dead short, if you've got a multi-meter check the resistance on the voice coil make sure its not high (like above 1Mohm) or below 4 ohms, Normally the sub will have an impedance of 4 ohms. Have you got another speaker you could test on the amp, any should do, does it get hot with nothing connected? (that would suggest a fault on the amp) is it new?

Adding line out inputs for RCA cables to amp

Hello ssmotorcity,

Here's a link to modifiedlife's Durango page showing the wire colors.

If you are adding a LOC for an amp to drive a sub, you are probably better off using the rear speaker wires, the last four wires shown on the listing. If you are adding an amp to drive all 4 channels, then of course, you need to convert both fronts and rears. The simple method is to tap directly into the appropriate wires and connect them to the line converter. If you do not want to tap the wires, you can purchase aftermarket wiring harnesses that are made to plug directly into your vehicle radio and/or the vehicle wiring harness. The Metra part number for a stock radio harness is 71-6502. It plugs into the radio and provides pigtail connections for power and speakers. There is, of course, a harness that plugs into the vehicle harness itself, allowing you to make the connections without any cutting or tapping of the original wiring.

Hope this helps.

Rough idle ON 97 FORD MECURY

the problem may be a buildup of carbon or fuel varnish deposits in the idle speed control valve (also called the idle air control valve or IAC valve). The cure for this condition is to clean the valve with some aerosol throttle cleaner or engine top cleaner. disconnect the air ductwork from the throttle body. Start the car and run at about 1500 rpms spray the cleaner directly into the throat of the throttle body. Turn off the engine and let sit for a few minutes. Then repeat the process a couple of times. if that does not work, you can remove the IAC and clean it by spraying into the two holes on the underside of the valve. If not, then you need to replace the valve.If that does not work , then check for a code. the throttle position sensor may be the problem. you can have it scanned at an AutoZone or other parts store.
