Question about Alpine CDA-9813 CD Player

1 Answer

Unit turns on and off by itself while driving. This started after I had the car on jack stands for a couple of weeks and I had left a CD in the player. I have no idea if the "on-off" problem could rationally be related to the car being on jack stands, but perhaps leaving a disk in the unit caused the mishap.

How do I check for worn wheel bearings

lift vechiel and support by jack stand. grab top and bottom of tire and wiggle it in and out, alternatly. or up and down, depending on how you look at it. but easiest way is to drive it. when noise happens, turn left and right, if noise gets louder or quieter as you turn then its guareenteed to be a wheel bearing. turn left and get louder, replace right side. if turn right and gets louder replace left side. if noise does not change due to turning. then not wheel bearing making noise.

I want to hook up my CD-BA2100 to my Inspiron 6000 laptop but i don't know how to hook it up or what to use.

The SHARP CD-BA2100 is a "stand-alone" cassette/CD/AM/FM player.

Its manual states that it can accept left/right stereo audio output, such as from your laptop, if you purchase the correct adapter cable (from "line-out" or "head-phones-out" on your laptop):

Video/Auxiliary (Audio signal) input

To listen to or record signals from external sources through this unit:
1 Use a separately available RCA cord to connect the desired external unit to the VIDEO/AUX jacks. (red ® right channel, white ® left channel) * When using video equipment (Laser Disc player or VCR), be sure to connect the audio output to this unit, and the video output to a television.
2 Press the ON/STAND-BY button to turn the power on.
3 Press the VIDEO/AUX button.
4 Operate the external unit.
5 To record the sound from the external unit ...

i.e., you can use it as the speakers for your laptop, instead of the laptop's tiny, built-in, speakers.

How hard is it to replace a automatic transmission in a 93 Grand Cherokee Laredo with a 5.2L-318 cubic inch engine.

Working standing up, with the proper adjustable transmission jack and air tools, I've seen good techs do a complete R&R in less than a half day. Working on the ground, lying underneath, using hand tools, you run into clearance problems, balance problems (the unit is relatively large and difficult to get into position). Using muscle instead of the proper jack often results in bent flywheels, damaged sensors or worse. In using a reliable shop to do the work, unless you are installing a used unit, you have a guarantee (used units are guaranteed but the shop will charge each time the unit needs to be removed if you get a bad one). That in itself is a "game changer". Unfortunately, the cost of a rebuilt unit, including install is likely higher than the book value of the vehicle. That's why you see many GC's for sale cheap, all with trans problems.
Can a novice do the job? Yes, but you will take anywhere from two to four days doing it. Get a chilton or haynes manual to guide you through the job, work on a flat hard surface (cement slab or at the least, a couple of sheets of plywood so you can move the jack) and try to rent a ground level trans jack. Always support the vehicle on good solid jack stands. If installed carefully, the only worry would be the quality of the unit you install.
Good Luck!!

I have a humming noise I the front end. I've jacked the car and there is no play in either of my wheels. The noise starts around 25 mph and gets deafing loud at 65mph, however it seems to go away around...

It sounds like you could have a problem with your wheel bearings.Wheel bearings do not have to feel loose to be noisy .A way to check would be to jack the front wheel off the ground.Support the front with jack stands under the lower control arms.Have someone drive the car with the wheels in the air and use a stethescope to listen for noise at the front bearings.
Note that feathering of the tires can also cause the noise.Feel for sharp edges on the inside or outside of your tires.

Pull to the left

This could actually be several things. Start with the simple stuff like checking tire pressure. If that is fine, then jack the front end of the vehicle up, and put it on jack stands and with the car in neutral see if one of the front wheels is harder to turn than the other. If this is the case, you could have one of the brakes dragging, and will need to fixed. If this does not help, take it in for an alignment. They will typically do a free inspection of all steering/suspension components.
Good luck!

TEAC - CD-X9 - No sound in left speaker

the speaker wire itself could be grounding out. look for small knicks in the wire and make sure the plug is not faulty. RCA plugs can go bad which would account for intermitent troubles some times
