You probably blew a little Diode. Check where the power comes into the radio you should see a diode in the general area it will probably be cracked if not you will have to put a meter on it to test continuity. O yea check the inline fuse first...

How does the brake work?

there have been countless accidents where unattended strollers have run away causing ***** to the child
the idea that you have is to prevent that from happening if you fail to apply the wheel brake
to do anything to prevent ti from working as designed will result in legal charges being place on you in the event of a accident involving injury to the child
it is not intended as an incinvience to you but to ensure the child's safety when you are inattentive

You may have tripped the inertia switch. It's a small black box in the trunk with a red push-button; it is designed to pop if the sensor registers a certain g-force and kills power to the fuel pump to prevent gas from being pumped out after an accident. Look for that behind the trunk interior panels.
Very good problem description btw.

I plugged the car stereo and it looks like has power. A red light is on and I can put a CD on it and take it out but the rest doesn't lights, no sound, nothing.It could be broken or just wrong...

most likely an internal problem but check the wires first, the yellow off the radio should be the 12 v ignition and the red should be the 12v constant, black ground of course, also if you had wires you didnt need to hook up make sure they aren't by accident

Moved dryer, hooked up wrong, not working now after re-hooked up

have you check outlet with a voltmeter or even checked breaker? Is your new rect' a 3 or 4 prong outlet? If you hooked up red's to black and black to reds it still should have worked. The 220 volt heating element is between the red's and blacks the 110 circuits would be between a red or black to white wire.

I accidently put red to black and black to red on 12 volt

The fuse is probably blown and will continue to blow until the protection diode inside the radio is replaced. Do not remove this diode, have it replaced, as it saves the rest of your radio when you hook it up backwards. Do not try a larger fuse. A standard CB radio should be fused at about 2 amps. or 804-855-4747 I can fix it if you'd like.

I am trying to wire up a new bell box to an exisiting panel the wiring layaout is as follows panel : 19.20= strobe ( with link ) T A (SCB) DB (BELL) BOX : HOLD HOLD- TG- STB- RETURN I have...

bell wire is color coded ,red terminal red wire ,white terminal white wire , when connecting theese wires be careful not to staple into one by accident because it will definetly cause a short , don,t worry it won,t cause a fire because it is low voltage , you can stick the wire in your mouth and still not get a shock , but seriously the wire that comes with theese machines is flimsy and can get broken fairly easy , just double check your wiring , infrared sensors are white and black and must be put in the proper stick in terminals on the machine , Here is your configuration from left to right ,RED/WHITE /WHITE,BLACK , remember do not take the white wires from sensors and stick them into the white terminal next to red because that one is for the bell and the whit thats next to the black is for the infrared sensors ONLY theese two cannot be crossed and always keep the two wires together till your ready to wire to the machine because if you seperate them before they are impossible to distinguish from one another when it comes time to wire it to the opener ,Hopefully i was able to help you ,if you have any more questions i will be happy to answer them , lets get this thing working Sincerely Glenn
