My gages won,t reset when I go to start my truck.when that happens it won,t start when thay reset it starts whats my problem to look at


Some instrument clusters may be able to self-test, it will turn warning lamps on and off, plus, sweep the gages, w/o outside input, meaning buss or serial data. If it passes that test, it is considered to be ok.
Yes, checking voltage and ground for instrument cluster is always a good idea, when problem is ongoing. At least, one voltage feed to instrument cluster should go hot with key on, could be problem in that area?
Are there any applicable trouble codes?
I can't look up much info w/o year--make--model?

My battery for my mp3 won't last long


If the rechargeable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced. Rechargeable batteries will fail if stored in a discharged state for long periods.

If it is solar powered and hasn't been used in some time, the battery may have died, permanently. If there is no battery to replace then it is broken forever. Sorry.When batteries are left without juice for a long period of time they die, and cannot be recharged.
