SOURCE: Just installed an LG mini

Check for 220v ACROSS the two 110v lines....if you have it on two 110v breakers instead of a two pole 220v breakers you can be feeding the same leg or the same 110v to the both sides of the connection and therefore the unit will not work...

You need to have 220v across the two hot legs or it will not work... 110v on each leg means nothing....if you have the same 110v, then more ONE of the breakers ONE notch up or down and you will have 220v then...

Hello, I have a 2003 dr650se and it wont start using the electric start. it will bump start and run fine until you kill the motor then it wont start it just clicks. the battery is fine. is there a cut

I think your bike has 2 anti start switches the side stand and the clutch lever. You state it bump starts runs fine then clicks when you try to restart. The clicking is the starter solenoid which would indicate the battery has not enough cranking power to turn the starter motor. Check battery voltage must be above 12.5. remove battery (undo negative lead first). Wire a 21 watt bulb to the battery and see if it dims within a small period of time. If it remains bright try charging the battery only use a dedicated bike charger (less than 1 amp out put). Do not use a car charger ever. When the battery is fully charged refit to bike (refit positive lead first). Try to start the bike again. If it fails to start bump start it and check the voltage across the battery is should be about 14 to 14.5 volts. If low volts at the battery with the engine running your charging circuit is not working correctly. If the volts are good I would try another battery. They sometimes give false reading to chargers when a cell or 2 short out.

1999 ,4x4,454,2500suburban.airbaglight stays on,when truck is turned off something is draining the battery ,the clock doesnot work fuel gage doesnot work.

Sorry to say, but none of these are related. Fuel gauge is probably the sending unit in the tank, could be wiring. The air bag could be the module,the bag unit, the sensors, or bad wiring. The radio is probably your most likely choice for battery drain. The three main things I have found to drain batteries are the radio, the starter, and the alternator. These three will kill a new battery in 1 to 2 days, An older battery over night. Shorts in the interior lighting is 4th..

My 1997 GMC Jimmy will not start, when I turn the key nothing happins. I put new battery in it and my power locks worked and windows, lights, then I turn the key and nothing everything dies???????

Did this happen after you put the new battery in?
I have run into where people just put a new Pep Boys or Kragen or whomever battery in and had issues afterwards. Soemtimes the terminals don't tighten. The bolt will be as tight as you can get it without stripping and the terminal can still be moved. The battery terminal hole may be too shallow not alloing the bolt to go deep enough.
Things will work until you try to start, The starter will draw a lot of juice and cause the loose terminal to arc and lose connection.

Now if this was happening before you replaced the battery then it may be the starter orits circuit. Hook a test light to the starters small "S" terminal and try to start. If the ight comes on its a bad starter. If no light then you need to trace that back. Manual transmission should have a safety switch on the clutch pedal. Automatic will have a neutral safety switch on the transmission (right side where the gear selector hooks to).

But that sudden loss of power makes me thing there is a loose connection arcing. If not at the battery then check the under hood fuse and relay panel.

The calculator will not turn on


If your calculator does not turn on, then there is every tendency that the battery is weak. So replace the battery and try again. But if replacing the battery does not solve the problem, read further;

Check the batter seat. I mean the position where the battery stays, look if you will find any rust of the battery terminal (metal). Rust can prevent the battery from contacting the unit, preventing it from receiving power. Get a flat screw driver, scratch the rust off, fix the battery back in and try again.

If there is no rust, then there is probably some disconnection inside the unit. This can be between the battery terminal and the board. Get a screw driver and remove all the screw. Take the unit apart and check for any lose contact between the battery terminal and the board.

I hope the above makes sense to you.......

Good luck.

How do I remove the battery fron a 2006 Dyna Super Glide Custom ?

Your battery is normally located under your RH cover. Remove cover and it should be easily identified as a black box with 2 cables attached to it. Normally you will find 2 bolt screws holding a (+) Positive (Red) and (--) Negative (Black) terminal cables. You can use a size 10 spanner, a No. 2 Phillips screw driver or a size 10 socket drive to unbolt them, start with the Black terminal cable then the Red one. Make sure that Red terminal doesnot touch anything, yet best practise is to wrap Red cable with cloth to avoid it contacting any surface. You'll see that the battery is held up by a bracket consist of 3 bolts screws, undo bolts, remove bracket after carefully removing any wires it holds, and just tilt the battery forward and out. There that's done. If helpful please return a comment.

2000 chrysler town and country new battery new alternator . now the thing won't start just makes a fast clicking sound everything else electrical works fine. did this 2 weeks ago in parking lot and hasn't...

The first thing that you should do is to make sure that the battery is fully charged, and then try and turn the crankshaft to be sure that the engine flywheel is not caught up on the starter drive gear, and engine is not seized up.

Make sure that the battery posts and the battery cable terminals are clean, dry, and tight. Even if the battery connections look clean, you should actually remove the battery terminals and make sure that the terminals where they connect to the battery and the battery posts themselves are clean, dry, and they should be shiny where they connect, and they should not be dull or oxidized, if they are then clean them up with a wire brush or you can buy a special battery cleaning brush from any auto parts store. Make sure that the battery cables are not heavily corroded under the wire insulation.

Make sure there are no loose battery cable connections at the starter, and that the battery ground cable is good and tight where ever it is connected to on the engine.

If all of the above checks out alright and the battery is fully charged, then you should replace the starter.

Trying to hook my amp up in my car, I already have everything but the main power supply which is the wire to the battery.I was wondering how would i do that the right way?

the car amp needs to be wired using a +12 power, ground, and +12v signal (rmt) cables.  the +12 volt cable needs to be connected from the posative terminal of the car battery to a fuse (the right size should be written on the amp somewhere) then to the +12v on the amp. the ground cable needs to be connected to the negative terminal of your car battery. the RMT is the more complicated one, this needs to be connected to the header unit or the ignition switch. if you look in the instructions for your header unit (the unict where you insert CD's or tapes etc) this should explain whewre exactly to connect this cable. or you can connect it to the terminal on the ignition switch which becomes live only when you turn the key, should be the third one in. this line basicly tells your amp to turn itself on when it recieves a 12v current. you can also wire it up to a manual switch directly from the battery by connecting another cable to the posative terminal of the battery then to a switch then to the RMT terminal of the amp.

There are generally 2 causes for this symptom.

1. The input connector is usually a 3 terminal device. When the plug is inserted into the device, a spring loaded contact is pushed away from another terminal which effectively disconnects the battery section from the device. This stops any electricity from the plug from being connected to your batteries and causing overload conditions. If this spring loaded terminal has been damaged, when the plug is removed from the device it will not "spring" itself back to its terminal and the battery power will not reach the PC board.

2. The battery case (compartment) has 2 wires going from it (internal to the device) one black and one red. If either of these wires has broken off the battery holder or broken off the PC board within the device, it will not power up.

You can also make sure that all the batteries are inserted in the correct direction. Since the unit works when plugged in, you can cross out anything else having to do with the unit.
