SOURCE: leak inside gps

Leak inside a gps is usually just a battery, sometimes they overcharge for to long and when happens the battery deforms and leaks. I have no idea where to send them to for repairs, bbut usually they are not that complicated to get into them and remove and replace the battery, they batteries in most gps units are the same size and usually the same shape as cellphone batteries, they just have different connections on the outside of them, but the insides are usually the same, also you might have one that you can run without the battery in it. I would suggest that you might want to open (if no warranty on it) up carefully, remove the battery and see if you can run it that way. Be advised though that if you do this, any power interruption to the unit while you are driving will cause it to shut down and you will have to start your trip entry all over again. Hope this helps.

When I go to text portion using kindle books, the page dims even if the brightness setting is at max


The option to keep the display bright is not found under settings in the Android app, but under the font settings. If you tap the centre of your screen whilst reading your book the icons will appear at the top of your screen. Click the font size icon, and a drop down list of settings will appear. The one at the bottom deals with brightness.

Which fuse is for the instrument panel back lighting?


Does the radio play ? Are any other back lighting components not lighting ? Does the HVAC control panel light up ? You probably need new radio !
The second interior lighting group includes lamps which may be dimmed. This group may use a combination of vacuum fluorescent (VF) illumination, LED illumination and incandescent lamps.
When the ignition switch is turned to the RUN position, the radio VF display turns ON at maximum brightness. When the park lamps are ON, all incandescent and LED back lighting turn ON at the dimming level indicated by the instrument panel (I/P) dimmer switch. At the same time all VF displays dim to match the indicated dimming level. The panel dimmer switch potentiometer is an input to the body control module (BCM). When the driver selects a dimming setting by moving the I/P dimming switch potentiometer, all incandescent back lighting lamps are provided with a specific voltage. When the I/P dimmer switch is moved from MIN to MAX, all VF displays, as well as all incandescent back lighting respond from minimum intensity to maximum brightness in response to the I/P dimmer switch.

Dim screen acer 5100-3019


Try going into power option settings and taking the brightness to the max there. Start, control panel, power options, then you should see a setting for battery and for plugin. Hope this helps.

My 6000i flashes No Engine Data


I researched my problem on the web, found several posts on various forums that helped. Bottom line, I determined that my 6000i installation did not include a gateway. I did that by eye balling the system after removing some panels.
