The pad setting is set by a (very) small dip switch located in the upper section of the Battery compartment. You will need to remove the battery to gain access.

I would reccomend using a toothpick or pin of some sort to change the setting, as the switch is extremely tiny.

How to replace the 3.5mm plug from Rode Videomic, it's giving false contact and have to move the plug constantly to get it to work, or replace the whole cable would be better?

First of all, are you sure it is actually the plug ? Could it be the socket into which it is inserted ? Replacing the cable in its entirety would seem the better option, at least to begin with.

Metal on metal noise when driving. Sounds like brake noise when brake pads are in need of replacement. Sound goes away when the brake is applied. Car only has 20,000 miles on it (2006).

Hello tgiro7: My name is Roger and I will help with your question. The fact the noise goes away when stepping on the brake pedal says the problem most likely is in the brake area. The pads could be worn out even at 20,000 miles.If the noise sounds like it comes from the front remove the wheels and check the front pads. If the pads are bad most likely the rotors are also bad.Same would apply if the noise emits from the rear. When you have the wheels off check to make sure the calipers will slide in and out on the mount pins. Should they be stuck on binding the pads will wear excessively and prematurely fail. The calipers must move freely on the pins. If you drive with your left foot on the brake pedal? The amount of pressure required to apply the brakes and not stop the vehicle is 1 to 2 pounds of pressure. Wont turn on the brake lights but will put pressure on the calipers. This in turn will wear out the brake pads. Another thing to look at would be an out of adjustment brake switch. Reach down and grab hold of the brake pedal. Give a firm tug on the pedal. Should you feel the pedal give and hear a click or two the switch was set to deep and holding the brakes on.

I am looking for the location of the body control module for a 2002 monte carlo. Can you help?

Hello t_odge1381: My name is Roger and I will help you. To locate the BCM remove the passenger side instrument panel insulator.Disconnect the negative battery cable. (NOTE, Be sure to record the radio access code so you can unlock when done) You should be able to see the BCM tucked up behind the dash panel. Will have three wire pack connectors. You can not just take a BCM from a salvage vehicle and install in your car. Whether it is new or rebuilt it has to be programed to your specific automobile.Otherwise the computer will lock it self out.So to replace it you must find someone who can program the BCM for your car. Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the answer. This way I know it was helpful. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

Rode NT2 got Phantom!

Well... Rode NT2's are condenser mic's that require phantom power to work. So the phantom switch should be on. When you turn phantom power on you usually hear a bump sound (through the amplifier). In this case, nothing is broken.
Your picture is of a Rode Videomic (not an NT2) which is a stereo mic for video cameras. If you had some kind of stereo mini to (single) XLR adaptor, and put phantom power through it, the mic would probably be damaged. But maybe not... just try again without phantom power to see. a stereo mic won't work very well with the Mbox Mini because it only has one mic preamp.
