Re: hi its about a fuel pump.i think...

I know exactly what you are talkking about. the same thing happened to me. my car would just turn off while i was driving. I believe this might be the problem, look in the left of ur trunk there should be a small box with a button on top, press it, and the car will start again. very easy, but most car shops wont tell u cause they want u to pay them to do it

Re: hi its about a fuel pump.i think...

You don't say what kind of car, what year, what engine, or any of that, but you sound like you know what you're doing, fixing things yourself, and good for you. I like to see that kind of thing, since most men won't even tackle a car anymore.

Anyway, you want answers, and I shall try to give them to you. There are only two places you'd find a fuel pump, in my experience: either in the gas tank itself, or attached to the engine block. Now, since whatever you have has carb, distributor, and coil, the block is the place to look. There will be no wires leading to the pump: it's powered by the camshaft. Simply follow the fuel line off the carb (it'll likely be the largest line leading to the carb. The others should be vacuum lines) and you shall find what you seek.

As for if the pump works or not, the symptoms indicate "not."

I am installing the CD Reciever in a Vintage Airstream Travel Trailer. The power wire, ground wire and speaker wires, should be no problem. (Neg ground) do I need the Mute, Illumination and remote? I...

1)The mute cable is to mute your CD Receiver when you get a call on your mobile phone. You will have to buy a car mobile dock for your phone and it will have a mute wire on it, which you will have to connect to your CD Receivers mute wire.
2) The illumination wire is to be connected to the headlight switch of your car. In some CD Receivers it will turn on the display at night along with the headlight. On some models it dims the back light at night along with headlight so that the bright light which is needed during the day does not distract your driving at night.
3) Remote wire is for triggering another device along with the CD Receiver,like an additional power amplifier or a Sub woofer etc.

My vehicle will stop or stall on very low speed or stop

check your battery.
check your alternator.
they may not be able to keep up with the demand of the stereo.
do your headlights dim when the bass hits?
hearing loss is permanent.
get a voltmeter, look into a capacitor.

What battery should i get for my 2008 dodge avenger. i have a kicker zx750.1 and the stock battery seems not to handle the amp's power. im not adding an extra battery.. i want to replace the stock...

hi, Optimer make a battery known as the "yellow top" which has a fantastic recharge rate. Unfortunately car amplifiers, especially ones running subs are well known to shorten the life span of a battery. due to taking large amounts of current at infrequent random intervals most standard batteries will have issues. In saying that the best solution for you is to purchase a reasonable quality battery and to install a min of 1farrad capacitor. the capacitor will stop the amplifier "power surging" your battery and lengthen the life of it.
i would try to install a 2 farrad capacitor even tho a 1 farrad will suffice as it should offer you more protection.
*added bennifit of stopping your headlights from dimming when your bass hits*
kind regards

You may have got the wiring wrong for the Power
it has one power and one for connecting to headlight power Which when headlights on it will illuminate the radio more/less depending on manufacture.
Mixing these up could mean soon as you start its thinking it needs to dim screen but instead its dimming the power.

Need help.. I have two 12 inch dual voice coil kicker comp vrs.. they are 4 ohm do i wire them to get a final ohm load between 1.5 to 4ohms in a dual enclosed box...Im hooking them up to a jl 500...

To do this they MUST be wired in parallel, IE: Plus to Plus, Negative to Negative. 2 4 OHMS in parallel is about 2 OHMS in series it would be 8 OHMS... series is positive to negative. Are you using a crossover network?

Hello empsglen,

If the sub voice coil is open, you will get exactly no sound. No crackling, nothing.

Use a multimeter to check the sub voice coil. If the meter reads infinity, the coil is open and to the amp, it's as if there's no sub connected, and you will need to replace it.

Hope this helps.

Car will not start. 89 olds 88 replaced fuel pump coil and ignition control modular. still does not get fire.

double check that you get pressure and flow, maybe pump relay. also check the crank and cam sensors along with the mass airflow. some vehicles will not run with faulty airflow sensor. Have you checked for any trouble codes?
