2002 Lincoln LS cd player won't work after battery

Try checking all of your fuses. Quite often a fuse blows when batteries or alternators are changed. There should be a fuse box in the engine compartment and another under the dash.

RUUD Achiever 3 ton roof unit. Pops fuses. Place "hard" fuses in and it would pop the house's 60A fuse. Checked both motors and they spin just fine at the touch. Both caps also...

The compressor is going bad or the unit is charged wrong...
Whatever the cause the problem is the compressor locking up and blowing the fuses...
Clean the condenser coil...maybe the pressures are going too high...
If that don't work, then the compressor is shot or over charged...

Here is a tip that I wrote about how to clean your condenser

I have 8 gauge power wire with 60a fuse (reccomended) but when i turn the power on, the light on the amp turns on, and then fades while blinking, which means it goes into safe mode. Could the 60a fuse...

Hi, the safe mode indicates the speaker impedance is too low. It doesn't reflect the power to the amp. Check the resistance of the speaker and wires with an ohmmeter and verify it is 2 ohms or greater. Can you tell me what speaker you have?

60A fuse ignition switch blowing out when i crank my 1992 cadillac sedan deville 4.9 base

fuse may just be old and failed or your started is bad and you have a dead short.
you want to try and fix it.
first replace the fuse.
check the wiring form battery to starter relay to starter - if all ok
disconnect the starter and start the car with the starter disconnected ( car will not start) does the fuse blow.
I hope not. - if it does you may have bigger problems.
now replace the starter, it is probably locked up. unless the engine has seized.

Intermittent power to head unit

no inline fuse? I usually just slip the wire inside the battery connector, remove connector lay wire across battery with stripped end running up the side of the battery terminal place connector down on terminal and wire, tighten connector back up.

My alpine CDE-7870 Cd player stopped working and i cant find out what is the matter with it

The power line has a blown fuse. Check under the dash or wherever the fuse box is that controls the stereo. Also, check the inline power wire cause they have those little cylindrical fuses that blow. Also, make sure you got a good ground and check for shorts.

No not your shorts. Check for shorts in the wiring.

I have an alpine m1000 amp and the fuse in the wire from the battery to the amp keeps blowing. Does anyone have any ideas?

Check that you dont have a short on the main power cable from the positive of the battery too ground

If it only occurs when you connect the amplifier... then the amplifiers power supply has gone short curcuit.

Take amplifier into a qualified repairer and get it fixed

Battery went dead alpine cd stop working

Sometimes when you jump off a truck the CD player fuse will blow because it was trying to turn on each time you turned over the engine. Check all the fuses.

Connect alpine 7874 to alpine powered sub

You need to run the RCA cables from the head unit to the sub for the audio signal, and possibly a turn on wire (the blue one on the back of the head unit), unless the sub has an automatic power feature.

The sub also needs power and ground wires attached, but those do not connect to the head unit. Power should be run directly from the battery with an inline fuse, and ground should go to the nearest good ground point (Trunk latch, seat bolt, etc).

Is Sub Underrated for my Amp?

fuses wont restrict the current flow the amp is way too much for that sub. it may not have damaged that sub yet but it will. you might only need a 100 watts rms too run it.but you will need sowe where about 2000 watt sub too run off that amp
