Electrical connection. I would prefer to hook the electrical so that there is power to the GPS when the key is in the "on" position only. I can easily connect the red wire to the positive side of fuse block and the black to the negative side. Any suggestions?

The black wire connects to the metal frame somewhere. Put it under a screw that is screwed into metal.

    For the love of GOD do NOT connect the ground for your GPS anywhere but the negative terminal of your battery or the negative bus!

Connectingit hooking it up


The exact list of parts for a dishwasher hook-up would depend on the existing plumbing and electrical . There are three hook-ups needed; a hot water feed, typically from under the sink. A Tee is installed on the hot water line with a valve, and the hot water line to the dishwasher is connected to the valve. A drain line from the dishwasher is installed under the sink. It connects to the sink drain. The Electrical connection can be made using the appropriate electrical cord.
There are specific guidelines and considerations on how to connect the drain line under the sink, and what is required for the electrical hook-up. If you do a search on "how to install a dishwasher" you will be able to find extensive information.

Odometer stays on after key has been turned off


Did u do any additions to your electrical ie gps or anything that had an internal battery? I have seen some ppl add things and tap into existing wires. Basically when you shut off your ignition key, your gps stays on and back feeds power to your bike until the battery in gps dies. Either change where you hooked up or add a diode.

The power of my Linksys Wireless-G Game Adapter [ WGA54G ], isn;t coming on! I was wondering if there is a switch to turn it on!


With Linksys game adapter there's no power switch on it when you plug it to a power outlet if adapter is working the light should come on.

You can follow these troubleshooting to determine if adapter is really bad or something else.

Make sure that the power adapter that you are using came with the wireless gaming adapter.
Power adapter is connected properly to the back of the adapter and the electrical outlet.
Electrical outlet is preferably a surge protector.
Try another electrical outlet.
Unplug and replug the power adapter.
Hold the reset button for a minute, while the adapter is connected to the electrical outlet.
If there is still no power light then it is possible that the adapter is defective, and have it replace if still under warranty.

My fuel pump does not work while hooked up to the electrical system. Once I hook it up to an outside electrical supply it works. The fuse is OK. Where might the problem be?

Not receiving gps signals all bars are red


which means very low or no signal. There are a few things to check here...

1) Ensure battery is fully charged Via AC or USB.. ( the most common fault when no connection is achieved)

2) Ensure the BAUD and PORT are set as per the manual ( no brand supplied)

3) Poor position, too close to other electrical interference HT power lines, trees etc.

4) Damaged SIIRF Chip ( Never plug the GPS to car power when starting engine, damages Chip and battery and renders GPS unfixable

Try # 1 first as it is the common denominator in non connection.

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

WE CHARGE THE MAGELLAN GPS AND TURN IT OFF. BUT WHEN WE GO TO USE IT AGAIN IT IS DEAD. I ONLY HAVE THE LIGHTER OUTLET TO HOOK UP FOR POWER SO WHEN I NEED TO PROGRAM IT IN THE HOUSE I DO NOT HAVE A WAY TO...


Hello kdiltzbook,

Most GPS units can be charged three different ways:

1. Connection to a computer via USB port
2. Connection to a automobile via cigarette lighter plug
3. Connection to a wall outlet via an AC adapter

Typically most GPS devices these days include only the USB cord. Some GPS units also include the cigarette lighter plug. For most GPS units the cigarette lighter plug and AC adapter are optional accessories have to be purchased in addition to the GPS.

You don't mention which model of Magellan GPS you have so I am not sure which cords your GPS should have included. It sounds like you have the cigarette lighter cord and the USB cord? I am sure that Magellan has an AC adapter available for your GPS. You will want to contact them directly (their website is http://www.magellangps.com) or visit an electronics store that sells Magellan GPS receivers (such as Best Buy™) to purchase the adapter.

However, most GPS receivers can be charged from the USB programming cord on the computer. However, ensure you are plugging the cord directly into a USB 2.0 on the computer itself NOT a port on a USB hub. (A USB hub may not output enough power to actually power and charge the GPS.)

You will also want to check and replace the fuse on the automobile plug.

I believe that both the USB and automobile cords should be charging the GPS. If neither adapter is charging the unit then the problem may be the GPS unit itself. The GPS may have a bad battery or problem with its charge circuitry. If that’s the case the unit may require factory service as the battery pack is generally not considered to be end user replaceable.


Best Regards,
Ken
