Belt Minder Deactivating/Activating


1. Before deactivating/activating the belt minder, set the parking brake.
Place the transmission range selector lever in P (PARK) (automatic transmission) or the NEUTRAL position (manual transmission).

2. Place the ignition switch in the OFF position.

3. Close all the vehicle doors.

4. Unbuckle the driver safety belt.

5. Place the parking lamps/headlamps switch in the OFF position.


1. Turn the ignition switch to the RUN position. (Do not start the engine.)

2. Wait until the safety belt warning lamp turns off (approximately one to two minutes).

3. NOTE: Steps 3 through 5 must be completed within 60 seconds or the procedure must be repeated.

Buckle then unbuckle the safety belt nine times, ending with the safety belt unbuckled. This portion of the procedure can be done before or during belt minder warning activation.

4. Turn the parking lamps/headlamps ON then OFF.

5. Buckle then unbuckle the safety belt nine times ending with the safety belt unbuckled. After this step the safety belt warning lamp will be illuminated for three seconds.

6. Within seven seconds of the safety belt warning lamp turning off, buckle then unbuckle the safety belt. This will enable the belt minder if disabled or disable the belt minder if enabled.

7. The following sequence of events confirm the belt minder is enabled:

-flashing of the safety belt warning belt lamp four times per second for three seconds

-three seconds with the safety belt lamp off

-flashing the safety belt lamp four times per second for three seconds again

8. The safety belt lamp flashing four times per second for three seconds provides confirmation that the belt minder is disabled.

9. After confirmation, the deactivation/activation procedure is complete. Seat Belt Chime - user_offline.gif

Y is my jl 1000.1/v2 amp keeps saying low volt blue light i got new alternator 2 batteries im start to hate this amp can anyone help

Make sure you are using a ofc wire set up with atleast 4 gauge. And make sure you are using a 4g copper wire from your alternator to your positive battery. This is a power hungry amp and if you do not feed it right it will not turn on or gonout when the bass hits. Do not use cheap cca wire from wal mart or ebay, only buy ofc wire. Make sure your ground is at the back seat belt bolt and sand it down, and make sure you upgrade the alternator to battery wire and battery grounds to the engine and car frame. The blue light means its not getting the propper power supply

How to disconnect key left in ignition chimes

The key in chime is activated by the key sense wire at the ignition switch. You may be able to power this down by IOD fuse but, it disconnects power to some other things as well, like keyless entry, etc.

I did install my amp on the back of my back seats. When the seat is down the amp dont work. then the seat is up the amp work! ground ?

Definitely check your wires, you don't want a short under the seats as it can also result in a fire. Also, if the amp is completely covered and there is no air circulation it will overheat and shut off. Make sure it's well ventilated.

you had a short circuit.... you need to check the fuse of your amp if it is blown then replace it.. otherwise replace the cable if it is burnt and check your amp carefully

I plug in rockwood detanator VII and it goes to protections mode

Generally if an amp goes straight into protection, the amp is not grounded well enough. Either you should find a new location to ground the amp to or unhook the power wire from the battery, remove the ground wire from the chassis of your vehicle. Strip the paint from the chassis, since it doesn't conduct electricity, and remove any corrosion or copper shielding from the ground connector. reground to a solid metal location Can be grounded to the brace behind the back seat or to the seat belt bolt for best results.
An amp draws a lot of power, there it needs to be grounded well.
Hook back up your power wire to the battery and see if your issue is resolved.

I have a JVC ks-ax302 amplifier and the sound is surging(on/off) the sub still has sound. I noticed when the sound is surging the green light on the amp also surges. I checked the power inputs the both...

Check the RCA cables, this is generally a sign of the RCA cables grounding in the insulation. This would be if you are getting a sound like a heart beat from your subs.

This is a 160 watt amp though.

Could also be a weak ground. Make sure you use a solid ground like the seat belt bolt or brace behind the back seat. A solid ground is best if you remove any paint before bolting the ground down as well.

Also might be the amp is clipping. Try reducing your gains and double check to make sure you are using the proper wiring diagram. This is a 2 ohm stable amp, any lower ohm load will cause problems with the amp.

there are protection circuits also in solid state amps. so it may not be a fuse but a shorted relay, transformer, mosfet, etc. to test a fuse (once located) set a mulimeter to the audible chime continuity test mode. then simply place the red lead on one end and the black lead on the other. if it chimes it is good. if no chime it is toast. most amps use slo-blo fuses. i would guess a 250v 5amp. you just need to know the acutal size. usually the circuit board will be printed the right fuse to use. make sure you are not plugged into power!!! a good old school local hardware store should have a nice bulk/bins of fuses in the electrical dept. try not to use automotive fuses. look on ebay if you can and buy a bunch of them .

&quot1996 Taurus ground wire to the battery is

You should not be grounding the amplifier directly to the battery.... but should instead find a good grounding point somewhere on bare metal of the frame, or a bolt that goes into the frame, such as a seat belt bolt..... just make sure you sand down to the bare metal around where the bolt is going to make contact with the frame.

Weird sound

get a portable player with a head phone jack get one of those cables with a headphone plug on one end and RCA's on the other plug the portable player into the amp and hit play. If you get Boom then the RCA grounds in your head unit are blown and only a repair shop can fix that. Also double check all grounds making sure they are solit with the proper gauge wire. Under the rear seat belt bolts is a prime connection point. Check with different RCA's
