Try using a power outlet in your car that turns on when you start the car and off when you stop. I find that the Finedrive works better when not turned off for long periods of time. I used it this week in this method and found the unit to respond / find the satellite signal within one minute or less. For some reason, when the unit is not used for awhile, it "forgets" where it is. This could also be attributed to the internal battery, but I am not privy as to whether using it regularly helps the memory/battery keep charged.

Both cases could be due to a dead memory battery. these have a very tiny button battery in them to keep some memory such as GPS position. if it dies then the GPS may take longer to get a fix and data such as your last position is gone each time you boot.

Reset security code 2003 Chevy impaula


Instructions
    • 1 Attempt to start the car. If it does not start, or dies very quickly after it started, then leave the key in the ignition in the "ON" position and wait 10 minutes. Make sure the security light is flashing. After 10 minutes the security light will stop flashing and either turn off or stay on steadily. When it does, then turn the ignition off, wait 20 seconds and attempt to restart the car.
    • 2 Repeat this procedure three times in quick succession without removing the key from the ignition.
    • 3 Start the car following the third 10-minute waiting period. The car should start and stay on. If it stays running, then the codes have been relearned and the problem is solved. If the car still does not start then you may need to have all or part of the passlock system replaced

Release mode resets to default when camera turns off


That's the way the camera works. You can use the "Remote on Duration" command in the Setup menu to change the length of time the camera stays on waiting for a command from the remote, but if the camera times out then it will revert to non-remote operation. An alternative would be to hook up an external power supply and keep the camera from turning off at all.

My Droid X is stuck on the Motorola "M" screen.


You may want to try a soft reset of the phone. If that does not work, try taking the battery out for a few minutes and the powering on the phone.

Screen stays blank, unit power surges on/off. It was turned off with the button last night. Unit will not reboot


Have you tried resetting the battery? Sometimes they can be loose and need to be taken out then put back in. If not I would try either a different charger or buy a new battery.

My ABS and parking brake light on my dashboard stay on. It used to be just when it was hot outside, but now it is cold and it is still on. I tried pulling the parking brake, but it stays on until I turn...


Why haven't you taken it in, to be diagnosed and repaired?

Any light on the dash, of any vehicle made in the last 30 years,indicates a possible malfunction of a vehicle system. Those check lights are govt mandated,so you get on it quickly,in case it is emission related.

You have an ABS system Failure,Wheel Speed Sensor or some other issues

Here is what you do, but only when the SECURITY light flashes - if it is always ON or OFF it's no use.
Turn the key in the ignition to ON.
Wait for exactly 10 minutes ( SECURITY light will flash for 10 minutes and then stay on SOLID)
Turn the key to OFF
Wait 5 seconds.
Turn the key in the ignition to ON.
Wait for exactly 10 minutes.
Turn the key to OFF
Wait 5 seconds.
Turn the key in the ignition to ON.
Wait for exactly 10 minutes.
Turn the ignition OFF.

Start the car normally.
It has relearnt the keycode and you're good to go.
NOTICE - it takes 30 minutes to relearn, that's THREE cycles of ON - 10 minutes - OFF.

Good luck.

Powermac g4 will not turn


this is a common problem with G4 Quicksilver. Your power-supply is defect and has to be replaced. I have 4 G4s in my lab with the same symptom: a short flash of the power-button light, sometimes it turns on, but mostly the machine is dead.
