I have the Precor 9.31 and it is 4 years old. When I start going fast the power shuts off completley. I am 210 pounds and this happens to me, however my wife is 120 pounds and is not having a problom.


SOUND LIKE A LUBRICATION ISSUE DEPENDING ON THE MANUFACTURER NOW A DAYS SYN SILICON IS USED ON MOST PHENOLIC DECKS IF NO MAINTENANCE HAS BEEN DONE I WOULD ALSO CHECK THE FOR UNEVEN SURFACE AND THE BELT MAYBE TO WORN AND THE LUBRICATE WILL NOT BE EFFECTIVE , BUT ITS CHEAPER TO TRY LUBE THAN NEW BELT AND DECK. GO TO gymparts.com part# TM001 or call them @ 1-800-496-7278

I have a fairly good sound system in my jeep cherokee, new speakers, deck, new battery, rca cables, and a new box for my subs. But recently i've been dealing with some problems. i've had my amp grounded...


there are really only 2 causes for this.

  1. grounds. Make sure the grounds are clean and tight and all paint and dirt was removed before they were fastened.
  2. Your alternator is starting to go bad.
I would lean toward the grounding problem as you have said you just changed them. Also make sure the grounds are as short as possible.

Installing an aftermarket stereo in 1996 explorer...sound issues.


You may have a factory amplifier in the rear of the explorer in the right cargo panel. You need to supply power to it by connecting the amp power on (Blue/White I think) in the dash to a power source (such as red on your stereo harness) so it comes on with the key. If you do have the amplifier, that's why you have no sound.

I just installed a Sony cd deck into a new 2009 hyundai accent. I spliced the harness onto the built in harness supplied with the car. I cant get the stereo to power up unless the headlights are turned...


You should never us the information that you find on line. Every so often about twice a year car manufactures change the wiring a bit. Due to changes in the system , problems with supilier issues ect. What you should have done was purchased a Metra conversion harness from best buy and made the hook up. To prove my point I live in Toronto and my PT cruiser does not even have a red wire for the deck power supply it's yellow and pink... Who would of thought. Good luck.

JVC car stereo doesn't power up


Check the ground wire. It might have come loose. Ground wire is the only black wire in the harness.

CAR STEREO NOT WORKING


Hi
With the newer cars most radios have a theft deterrent device built into the radio, and if they steal your system it will not work in another jeep/car the dealer knows the unlock code, some charge to unlock the radio some don't.
That's why when doing electrical work on a car/truck etc. You have to have 12V DC power to the battery terminals all the time or you will loose the code and then only the dealer can help you unlock the radio.
HTH.

Kenwood dnx 7100 shuts off sporadically


If it is shutting off and coming right back on I would defintley take another look at your ground connection. This is the most likley cause for the sudden turn offs. Especially if it comes right back on.
