It sounds like your stereo is working properly. I've never seen a car stereo that was wired properly that you could turn on and listen to while the car was off with the key removed from the ignition switch. You would have to move the ignition switch to the accessory position in order to get the stereo to work. Hope this helps. Good luck. Mike D.

SOURCE: garmin nuvi does turn on when connected to power in car

Hi

I had the same problem. My Nuvi 350 did not power up for a couple of days. I suspected moisture to be the culprit. So I took my wife's hair dryer and blew hot air(in the intermediate setting) into the SD card slot in the GPS for a couple of minutes. Take care not to overheat the GPS or Screen.
Pronto my GPS powered up without any issues.
Hope this helps

yeah from what im to understand... you charge it overnight, and yes another way to use it (and possibly better way) is connecting to the battery directly..... it should work on your van fine i think, its worth a shot, hope this helps :)

I have a 6000 watt allpower generator that the 12 volt breaker poped out reset it still no power replaced the avr ran for about 5 seconds then poped the 12 volt breaker again what could it be


Barry,

The 12v system does not go through the AVR. It most likely is the Battery Charging Rectifier has failed. This controls the voltage from the 12v feed from the alternator and charges the battery.

1) Follow the wiring from the 12v socket/connectors until you come to a Block rectifier. It will be held on by a bolt in the center and have 4 wires connected to it. If you look at the pins you will see one is seated at a different angle to the others. Test the feed to this pin, you should get a result of between 12 Volts DC to 16 Volt DC.
If you are not getting these results then the Block rectifier has blown and will need replacing. http://www.generatorguru.com/rectifier-98406168/

2) If all is testing fine above, then you will need to test the Battery Charging Rectifier as you have an Electric Start and Battery on your unit. This is a metal block located on the back of the engine, next to the starter motor and it has fins running across it. ( to see an example of this part look up your generator on this page http://www.generatorguru.com/all-power/) Again this should be giving you between 12 Volts DC to 16 Volt DC.

3) Next,check the voltage going into the Battery Charging Rectifier from the alternator. You should get between 12 Volts DC to 16 Volt DC.

For replacement parts please see our web page. You will need the full model number to do this.:

The Parallax 7155 converter should not require battery support for any 12 volt load amperage that is less than the maximum amperage capacity of the converter. A standard RV incandescent 12 volt lamp draws about 1.5 amperes for each bulb. With the battery disconnected and other 12 volt loads off, turn on lamps (not fixtures) and calculate the number of bulbs which can be turned on. If you run out of lamps, turn on vent fans etc. The idea here is to try to get to 55 amperes of DC load if possible without going over 55 amperes. At a sustained DC load of about 25-30 amperes or higher, the fans should cycle on continuously after about 5 -10 minutes. Lamp brightness should be normal and the measured voltage from the converter should be above 13 volts if under 55 amps of DC load. If the voltage drops with only a few lamps on, a converter issue would be likely.

Diagnostic tests an RV technician should make would be to:
1. Disconnect the battery system.
2. With the converter system powered on, measure the DC amperage with a DC ammeter capable of reading at least 60 amperes DC from the blue lead at the DC fuse panel terminal VCC.
3. Measure the DC voltage at terminal VCC and DC ground.
4. Record both readings.
At any DC load amperage less than 55 amps, the voltage should be above 13.0-13.2 volts DC. This method should take out all guesswork and confirm a DC converter section issue or not.

How can i power my cpap sleep machine while camping


I bought a 12 volt DC power supply mechanism from cpap.com that can plug into the cigarette lighter of a car or truck, or be connected to an external 12 volt battery. Car batteries can only be drained and re-charged a few times, without damaging the battery. But marine batteries are available, used by fishermen to run electric trolling motors on their boats, that can be recharged indefinitely. They are heavy.

no these are made to run off a batteries the 12 volt supplied from the gen is for charging batteries only and if the engine for starting the gen set has a battery their usual to small to run then their made for car style batterers.

could be the wires need cleaning or new ends.or low battery power. check battery for 12 or 13 volts.if good on volts disconnect starter wire(dissconnect battery first) then hook up dc volt meter to starter hot wire and a ground at the battery.watch volt meter when u press the start button,do you still read more than 12 volts. if not replace solenoid.

Can i run my minn kota 30 trolling off my power box


Are you referring to an inverter by a "power box"? That term doesn't really describe the device. I'm going to assume it's an inverter you're talking about, a device that takes DC and turns it into AC. I'm not sure about that, but you should be able to plug a converter (turns AC into DC) of the right voltage, 12 to 14 volts DC into a generator on the boat and run it. I'm assuming the trolling motor runs off 12 volts DC and NOT gasoline. Be sure to check that before doing anything. Most do run off a large car or RV battery. Lead Acid Batteries for boats and cars produce 12.7 volts DC if they are in good shape and should have six cells (about 2volts per cell). 6 volt batteries are somewhat rare these days and have 3 two volt cells. Two of them in series will also power it.
Thanks for asking that question ... I like to fish also.

How do i tell when the inverter is charged?


Question does not seem to match this inverters capability.

INFO:
This Power Inverter converts vehicle’s 12-volt DC power into household 115-volt AC power. AC and USB outlets power and/or recharge personal electronics.

We have owned one of these Power inverters for over a year now and have run a great deal with it, from TV to drill press PC and any thing that was small and that could run from my car. Very nice product.

SET UP: Connect wires. ensure correct polarity, push button on top. Plug in 110 volt appliance.

Hope this tip was of some use.

Garmin nuvi 5000 wont turn on. I can plug up the usb up to the computer and the screen shows garmin logo with a gps connected to a computer like its charging. But when i press the power button weather it...


Your nuvi 5000 does NOT have a internal battery and that means that you cannot operate it unless it is connected to a 12 volt power source. Connecting it to your computer via USB allows you to install map updates, check for firmware updates, etc, but you will not be able to use it as a gps while it is connected to the computer. There is nothing wrong with your gps.
To use your gps in the home you need to purchase a 12 volt adapter, there are several types, plug the adapter into your wall outlet and connect your gps to it. If you can sit near a window it will help in picking up the satellite signal. Just keep in mind that you cannot connect the 12 volt power supply and use the usb cable at the same time. Enjoy your gps.
