I changed h2 and catylic converter,in line filter,muffler,mass air flow censor,and battery still no power could it be fuel pump regulater? fuel pump still pumping


That would have been an expensive exercise. Try resetting the engine management electronics. Disconnect the cars battery completely with your headlights on. Leave the battery disconnected for at least 30 minutes. Leaving the headlights in the on position will kill any residual power left in the car. Obviously, the clock, the radio etc will also lose their settings. make sure you have the Radio pin code BEFORE you disconnect the battery as you will need it to restart the radio. reconnect the battery and try the car again. Resetting the electronics will put it back to factory setting. Hopefully , this will cure your problems. Ive done it a few times on my Ford and its worked fine. If not sure, try looking online for "resetting Ford ECM" there are many videos and info showing this and how to do it.

Tip

DISCONNECTING YOUR BATTERY without losing the RADIO CODE


I constantly read frequent requests for RADIO CODES referring to the disconnection of battery power ( whether its for changing the battery, etc.) and the radio is now INOP. Here is a simple way to save radio codes, radio stations, clock time and computer settings. Purchase from an auto parts dealer, a 9 volt battery powered lighter socket connector. Plug into lighter, do your battery work, After work is completed, disconnect, and radio will work as before. Unit will cost less than 20.00 and well worth it.

How to i remove the factory stereo from a 2002 honda accord


1) Pry out the clock with a fine screwdriver, it has no screws, take care not to mar the fascia, disconnect both plugs.
2) Take out the radio/ ac fascia by unscrewing the screw that was hidden behind the clock, and the 2 screws at the bottom of fascia
3) Take out the factory radio by unscrewing the whole chassis that supports the radio (4 screws at the corners) . Most stereo replacements will fit into this chassis too. Unplug the connectors, and the antenna plug.
Avoid cutting the cables. Use plug converters whenever possible. This will avoid speaker polarity problems, as well as night lighting, power antenna, memory power feed mix-ups .
4) Dismount the factory radio from the chassis (tray?), in order to reuse it.

Have stock radio # F75F-19B131-AA its in a 1998 F250 need to know how and if i can hook up one Amp for the two door speakers, and if i can hook up an additional Amp for some subs. Ofcourse if radio can do...


You will need a line level converter for starters (takes speaker level signal and converts it to line level/RCA signal) you connect this to the speaker left/right wires and it has a RCA left right on other end to connect and run to your amps, (you need this box because factory radios don't have RCA outputs on them) At that point all you have to do next is run the power/gnd/rem for your amp and then speaker wires to your front/rear speaker and then sub (if using). You can use one of these converters for your front/back speakers so you will still have use of your front/back/left/right fading options. make sure you disconnect th factory plug/harness at each speaker since the amp will be powering them and you will run speaker wires to each speaker. If you only want one converter it will be on your front channel and your sub will be power by the front. (you will fade to front for more/less sub bass unless your amp has a separate volume/bass control). If you want your sub to fade with rear speakers you will need to install another converter off of the rear speakers. Found a site with some photos that may help you with your project.

02 boxater radio won't power on


You may have to re-enter the radio code. Did you have a battery problem or replace the battery. Any time you disconnect the battery, you have to recode the radio.

Ok, I am assuming this is the 600 watt amplifier?

DISCONNECT YOUR BATTERY!!

Supplies needed:
- 8 Gauge power wire (long enough to run from your battery to the amp placement) WITH an inline fuse!!
- Depending on your stereo (if it has amp pre-outs or not) you will either need RCA cables (long enough to reach your amp from your stereo) OR a Line-Out converter AND RCA cables.
- The power lead that connects to your "REMOTE" line on your stereo (long enough to reach from amp to stereo - usually blue)
- A good ground wire ( long enough to reach a metal part of your car from the amp)

======================================================================
STEP 1: Find a spot to run the power wire from your battery - through your firewall and into your car - and then to your amp. (DO NOT CONNECT IT TO ANYTHING YET)
STEP 2: Remove your car stereo and look to see if you have PRE-AMP outs (RCA connectors for an amp on the rear of the unit)
A- if you do, GREAT.. proceed to step 3
B- if you don't.. you will need to get a LINE-OUT CONVERTER - what this does is converts the higher signals from your standard wires on your radio, to RCA style wires to connect to your amp.
B2- you will also want to buy a wiring harness kit for your stereo, unless you want to hack away at your factory wires.. (not recommended) - connect the harness kit to your factory wire harness, wire in your leads for the output converter, and run the other end to your stereo.*
*you will need to know which wires run to the speakers you plan to power with the amplifier
B3 - once the converter is properly connected - proceed to step 3
STEP 3: Plug the RCA cables into the stereo or converter, and run them properly from behind your radio to the amp but DO NOT CONNECT THEM YET.
STEP 4: Connect the REMOTE wire from your stereo to the same wire for your amp . (this enables the amp to turn on/off with your radio.. otherwise.. you will have alot of dead batteries)
STEP 5: re-install your stereo into the car.
STEP 6: Connect the RCA speakers into the INPUTS on your amp
STEP 7: Connect the REMOTE wire to your amp.
STEP 8: Connect the speaker wire from the OUTPUTS on your amp to the speakers you wish to power
STEP 9: Connect the POWER CABLE to the amp PROPERLY
STEP 10: Connect the GROUND CABLE to a metal part of your car (sheet metal, not just a bolt)
STEP 11: Connect the POWER CABLE to the battery cable
STEP 12: Re-connect your Battery
STEP 13: Start your car, and test your radio.

If you have any issues from here.. you need to re-check all of your connections.

Questions:
1. Does the AC cord look ok? Not damaged?
2. Have you tried another AC outlet?
3. Does the AC cord unplug from the radio?

When you operate the radio from the AC power cord, the radio uses an internal power supply consisting of a step-down transformer, rectifier, and filter that converts the AC to DC to operate the radio.

When you run the radio off of batteries, it powers the radio directly. In some radios, when you plug the AC cord into the radio, it activates a switch that disconnects the battery voltage to the radio so that the batteries wont be damaged from the voltage created by the internal supply.

The radio can be powered by either the batteries or the internal supply. You don't want either supply affecting the other, so that is why a switch is sometimes used.

Since the radio works fine off of batteries, that would indicate that there is a problem with the internal power supply. This could be a blown fuse, bad transformer or bad rectifier diode.

Good Luck,
- Jim
