Question about ATN Night Scout Binocular

1 Answer

Powers up, but does not illuminate.

Had it in storage for about a year. When I activated it, the left side illuminated ok, but the right side stayed dark. After a while, the right side also went dark. The IR illumination worked, and all the LED indicators are normal. The batteries are fresh. The storage environment ranged from near freezing to perhaps 100 degrees F.

The device has less than 20 hours useage, and is in like new condition cosmetically. Anything I can do to resolve this, or do I need to get professional repair? Also, would you estimate whether major repair costs would be exorbiant (approach the cost of the device)?

    Same problem...left side powers up and illuminates. Right side does not. Binoculars are in as new condition. Tried new batteries...nothing changed.

2002 ford expedition interior lights are not on what fuse is it?

Courtesy Lamps - central junction box. fuse # F1.21 that goes to interior lamp relay in the instrument cluster and F.24 this fuse powers battery saver relay .
Interior Lighting The interior light system consists of the following:
  • front map lamp assembly
  • front door courtesy lamp
  • generic electronic module (GEM)
  • glove box lamp assembly
  • central security module
  • interior lamp switch
  • interior lamp relay
  • illuminated vanity mirrors (Navigator only)
  • reading lamp assembly
  • rear courtesy lamp
  • running board lamp
  • underhood lamp assembly
  • The generic electronic module (GEM) illuminates the interior lamps when an unlock signal is received from the remote anti-theft personality central security module. The illuminated entry feature will be canceled when any of the following conditions are met:
    • 25 seconds have elapsed since the illuminated entry feature was activated and the interior lamp control is not activated (door ajar or courtesy lamp switch on).
    • The GEM receives a request from the central security module (remote transmitter lock button pressed) and the interior lamp control is not activated.
    • The ignition is in the RUN or START position and the interior lamp control is not activated.
    The GEM will illuminate the interior lamps when any door is open or ajar. The interior lamps are; the dome lamp, the rear cargo lamp, the door courtesy lamp and the side rail lamps. The courtesy lamps will shut off when the doors are closed and the illuminated entry feature is not active or when the vehicle speed is greater than 5 mph (8 km/h). The interior lamps will not be reactivated until the vehicle speed is less than 3 mph (5 km/h) and a new door open warning lamp switch is received.
    The GEM controls the interior lamps illuminated entry function by activating the interior lamp relay.
  • You have an electronic control module and relays involved in the operation of these lights also !

    Changed the battery in my polar cs400 and has now locked the settings mode.Anyone know how to unlock it?

    Hi Matty, This act just like a digital watch where you have to set everything your specification. What I'm understanding you can't activate the setting mode. If you press OK twice quickly then you have unlocked it.Did this work.........Joel

    does the anti-lock brake light come on too? and ive found the best way to reset codes manually is disconnect the battery terminals pos. and ground. then touch them together( the battery cable terminals) their is a copasitor that will store enough power to hold your codes in the ecm. this way you are essentially grounding the system to drain all residual power stores

    When headlight are on and hit the beake pedal only the 3rd brake light comes on the rest are stuck . When i release brake pedal it seems like i am driving with my brake light on . but my headlight off...

    It may sound silly, but check your brake light bulbs to see if they have been installed incorrectly. Brake light bulbs have two filaments, one for tail light, and a brighter one for brake lights. On some cars if the bulb is installed wrong, the brighter filament will stay on for tail lights. The only other thing I can think of is the wrong bulbs have been installed.

    The internal panel lights work off the left hand side of the side lights and are protected by the 10 amp fuse for this side. I had replaced both stop and tail lights with a heavy duty bulbs and because the left hand side powers the panel lights as well, obviously it was too much for the circuit. The right hand side was okay.
