Hi - I was researching this for you online and found in the device's owner's manual that the "SPAN" settings can cause the device to cycle unusually. Since you've changed batteries, you may need to check these settings. Sadly, it also says that if the unit goes on when in the off position, the device may need replaced. See if the owners manual's SPAN settings and "Troubleshooting" section of the free manual available at the link below is of any help. Best of luck... Download Hunter 42999B Owner Manual for Free Page 2 ManualAgent and if I'm off track or you've already tried that, please reply back and someone else may have a better idea.

SOURCE: battery charge light comes on a few minutes after car starts

Couple of things to check, first this may be nothing more than a belt that has loosened or stretched after the install.There should only be about a quarter of an inch stretch in the belt between pulleys. Caution - only check with engine stopped!!! The alternator causes a strong resistance when it is producing electric power, so slippage is to be checked first. Second, if the battery light comes on and off; it maybe acting in error. Get a multi-meter and check the battery voltage with car and ignition shut off. With the meter set on 12volt bat, place the black probe on the negative side of battery or ground and the red probe on the positive side of battery. If you get a reading of 12.66 v the battery is being charged and is full. If you get 12.45 you have a 50% charged battery. If less the alternator wiring needs further checking into as there maybe issues with wiring or the alternator itself. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: A/C not working properly

There is what is called a low pressure switch in the system that will not allow the system to run unless there is a complete charge in the system, what is happening is that the system is "Short cycling" due to low pressure, you can purchase a re charge kit at the local Autozone or Pepboys and that will fix the problem.

Several possibilities: 1) PCM or idm relays cutting out when hot, but said it's good, but double check anyway. 2) Possible IPR regulator o-ring, losing it's seal after oil gets thin, and or connector loose or bad from vibrations. 3) Possible cam sensor intermittent failure 4) Best to hook up a scanner and observe engine data to eliminate costly guesses. 5) High mileage vehicles, check ignition switch. 97 F-350 565 EFI Big Block

Furnance will not turn on no heat.

There are many possible reasons, but in the UK you need to be Gas Safe registered to work on gas appliances. I am sure that most countries have similar codes that must be applied

Try changing the frequencies in the receiver & transmitter. If that doesn't work, you probably need a new receiver.

My alarm keeps off what is wrong

Disconnet the positive, red battery cable, leave it disconnected for at least 5 minutes. Reconnect the positive battery cable, turn on the key but don't start the car, this will cause the computer to reboot, wait a few minutes and start the car, if this doesn't fix the problem take it to a certified mechanic, could be a bad control board.

2004 chevy Trailblazer, We changed the battery and now the a/c only blows hot air, How can this be fixed?

Try to reinitialize the HVAC system by turning all controls to their off position or fully CCW position, then disconnect the battery for a few minutes. Reconnect battery and allow the HVAC to initialize, don't move any controls for at least a minute. If this does not work, you probably have a stuck blend door or a bad door actuator.

You may be drawing to much amperage for the switch to handle both fans. You may be underwired if it is an old house. you can hook wires together without switch in place and see if everything keeps working but don't hook them together with the power on. Also don't run very long as the wires could heat up. Run for about 5 minutes and turn power off and check heating of wires.

Heater does not turn off

It could be, or it could be a wiring issue. Make sure that your wires are in the correct place (R or Rh and W), and that they are not touching each other. If you have the unit running, and you disconnect either of the wires, it should shut off. If it does not, then the problem is in the wiring. Hope this helps
