Take a backup first
Below is something which you shall know about your Germin.
1. There is a thermometer inside your Garmin unit. The intent of this thermometer is to compensate the internal time-of-day clock for changes in temperature which will cause the internal crystal to drift. To a lesser extent it is also used to adjust the contrast of the display screen for temperature changes. It will not measure ambient temperature except when the unit is first turned on since the internal temperature is changed due to the heating effects of the electronics in the unit. The thermometer based correction works by building a table of correction values that are then applied to the internal clock. This is only used to obtain an initial fix since after the fix the satellite data is used to keep the clock accurate. Similarly while you have a fix the accurate clock can be used to update the temperature data in the table which means the unit will compensate for aging parts and even the complete loss of the table.
2. To completely reset on of this units hold the "menu" key and the "quit" key down and then press the "power on" key. Hold for a full 7 seconds and then release. As with the other units all information will be lost and you will need to reload the almanac and all your saved user data to make the unit usable. For the 76S try this sequence to master reset it. Press and hold quit, Menu, and the rocker down key. Then press and release the power on key. release the rocker down and wait for the welcome display. Now release the quit and menu keys.
3. If you have to perform a full reset using one of the sequences shown above you will need to allow the unit to collect a full almanac before normal can be resumed. First a fix will need to be obtained which can take from 5 to 10 minutes of leaving your unit outdoors, stationary, with a good sky view. After the first lock you will need another 12.5 to 15 minutes to get the almanac reloaded. Check the date to insure that the information was reloaded properly. Time will be shown as UTC time since your local time offset was lost in the reset.Re-establish all of your preferences such as time zone, daylight savings flag, etc. Reload all your waypoints and saved routes from your backup. I do hope you have a backup.

4. Something which you shall know about your GPS system for future uses :-

click and save them

If you face any problem with resetting or taking a backup or regaining your resolution back to normal. just give me the version and model of your gps. for deeper solution. Remember if you are using it in a very cold place the inbuilt thermomast is going to show effects. consider that point before resetting it. If you have recently shifted to a temporary location where temperature is freezing then I'd recommend to let me know the facts. I'll generate another temporary solution for this place.

Hi,

The gps would 'dim' possibly if unplugged, but it would also ask you (via screen prompt) if you wanted it to stay on. If not, it would shut off in 30 seconds.

First thing..have you tried issuing a full reset to the unit (reset button in the back) then plugging it in to the car, letting it sit for a second and then power it up?

OK, I've managed to overcome the problem I've formated the micro SD card and now it works without any glitches .
Thanks for contacting Fixya.

How do you wire up 4 6 volt batteries in a 1976 kenworth. 12 volt lights 24 volt starter


When you go pos to neg from one battery to the next it increases voltage, pos to pos just increases amperage. You would want to wire 2 in series, just imagine stacking batteries in a flash light, pos from one to neg on next. Remaining pos and neg are 12v now. Run both remaining pos to starter and ground both negs. your pushing a lot of amps with the batteries and doing 12v, and your charging system is 12v. If you do another series from there, you have to regulate the voltage when the starter kicks in...you risk burning every light and electric component...just like running 12v in 6v system... You can also use 4 12v batteries and run all pos to pos and all neg to neg and have mega cranking amps...that is how all modern big trucks are set up. Your pushing around 7k cranking amps that way(1500 per battery)...plenty to start the healthiest cat... And don't have the worry of dual voltages or running in series. You really don't need 24v to start and unless you have a 24v alternator, these are your 2 options. Best bet if your not sure is to try with 12v...no risk of frying anything even on 24v system. 24v on 12v system is, on the other hand, a big risk. 43bf17ec-4e37-4a15-a147-d1e7a1377d9f.jpg

I have no sound coming from my sub or my back speakers. all the fuses are fine and all connections are fine as well and the blue light on my amp is on. and the it seem the power light and protection light...


With the radio OFF, take a jumper wire and connect from the 12V input to the remote input of the amp to see if it powers on.(BE CAREFUL NOT TO TOUCH THE GROUND). If it does, your remote from the radio is either cut somewhere, or not working at all. If it doesn't turn on then turn on the radio and do the same thing with the jumper wire, if it turns on, then your 12V power from battery is not working, maybe a blown fuse by the battery?

Cant get remote wire to turn on amp. it is running from back of kenwood deck to kenwood amp.


OK ! FIRST THINGS FIRST. DID U TEST THE AMP FIST. BEFORE U STARTED INSTALLING RCA CABLES,AND REMOTE WIRES. LETS DO THAT FIRST.GRAB YOUR AMP.SET IT ON YOU WORK BENCH ,TABLE,OR CHAIR.THEN GET (2)PIEACES OF #10 OR #12 WIRE W/1 OF THE WIRES HAVING A 20AMP FUSEABLE LINK ON IT.NOW THE WIRE W/THE FUSEABLE LINK ON IT.CONN THE REMOTE(REM) AND THE 12v + ON THE AMP AND HOOK THEM BOTH TOGETHER ON 1 SIDE OF THAT FUSEABLE LINK WIRE. AND THE OTHER WIRE HOOK IT UP THE - GROUND SIDE OF THE AMP .NOW PICK UP YOUR AMP OPEN UP YOUR HOOD.MAKING SURE THAT NO WIRES OR THE AMP IS TOUCHING THE + 12V OF THE BATTERY. NOW CONN YOUR GROUND TO GROUND AND THE FUSEABLE LINK ON THE +12v SIDE OF THE BATTERY.NOW THE AMP SHOULD HAVE CAME ON. LOOK 4 A SOLID RED LIGHT OR ANY SIGNS OF A SOLID LIGHT THAT HAD CAME ON.

Hello
The 1st thing to do is make sure the battery is not defective and that the battery post and cables are clean and free of corrosion and making a good connection, even if they seem ok clean them with a battery post and cable eyelet cleaning tool, they are available from any auto parts store for around $4.00, while u are there bring the battery with u and have it tested it is free at any of the many so called discount auto parts stores , these new sealed battery types can go just like that, one moment they crank the engine fine the next not, very common, have seen it dozens of times.

Sounds problem


First things to check:
  1. You changed the fuses on the amp, but have you checked the fuse that is inline on the +12V wire? Most of the time, it's right near the battery terminal.
  2. Do you have +12V at the amp's power terminals? If not, either your +12V or ground line has a break or disconnect.
  3. Try taking a piece of wire and connecting it to both the remote connection of the amp and the +12V on the amp. This should cause the amp to turn on (if all is well). If not, the issue might be internal to the amp and would require professional repair.

Amp


Unfortunately, I can't find the manual for that amp online, so I'm flying blind. If there's anything similar to "system control", that is essentially the same thing as the remote.

Another thing to try is try connecting the +12V wire to one of the "+" inputs at a time. If one of those connections is the remote, hooking +12V up to it but not the other will cause the amp to not turn on. If the amp turns on no matter what "+" input you put +12V on, then we know both "+" inputs are probably are just for +12V.

It's also possible that the DIN plug has the remote as one of the connections in it. Don't know that without the manual.

But, if the amp really, truly has no remote wire connection, you'll need to get a SPST switch or relay to turn the amp on/off. Otherwise, without a switch or remote, your amp would be on 24/7 and drain your battery in no time.
