Question about Car Audio & Video
Best case, it won't power on. Other cases, it shuts off then on then off. Could also introduce noise into your audio signal. Another thing it will do pretty often is to seek a ground thru your RCA cables back to the radio and then "fuse" (read fry) your ground circuit in your radio for the RCA outputs. Worst case, it will do something bad to your amp. Most likely thing to happen if there is a bad ground is to zap your RCA grounds in the radio, and then it is time to take the radio to the shop to get some new ground wiring installed. Good luck.

Tips for a great answer:
The 3E133 (or similar) Infra-Red Heater with correct voltage to the circuit board should produce a spark at the spark ignitor rod within a few seconds of having power applied. If it doesn't, one of the following could be the problem: (1. circuit board (ignition controller) is bad. (2. The gap between the spark ignitor rod and the middle rod (ground) is incorrect. It should be between 1/8" & 3/16". (3. There is not a good ground. This could be due to rust or a loose connection at any point between the equipment ground and the spark ignitor rod, including the ignitor mounting screws. (4. The spark ignitor rod or its orange wire is grounded, such as touching metal and thus "short circuiting" rather than allowing the spark ignitor rod to be 1/8" from "ground".
That's all I can think of that would cause NOTHING to happen.
