Resistor for wahl dog clipplers

The value of the resistor is 7.5 ohms, half watt or 1 watt will do the job. Not available from Wahl except as part of the PCB so an electronics store is the place to go. Whenever I find one of them burnt out I include a new set of batteries as part of the repair.

"im no proffetional at this". Really?

If you looked at the manuals for either product you would NEVER find a recommendation to use one amplifier's speaker input to drive the LINE LEVEL (very small) input on another amplifier. Speaker outputs are for driving speakers or amplifiers designed to accept speaker-level input (like some self-powered subwoofers). In no case is the power of the originating amplifer BOOSTING the power of the driven one.

You should do some reading on how amplifiers work before you blow something up and come asking for advice on how to resolve it.

Sounds like you blew the finals. When you "RUN POWER", you increase chances of something going wrong and it is mainly caused by a high SWR reading. You fried something for sure. Better get those SWR's checked while you are there.

Need Bissel 1715 wiring schematic. Charging circuit has burnt resistor. Need to know resistor details.

Can not believe NO ONE could answer this.

The R1 resistor basically drops the 9V to around 5V for charging the battery pack. The resistor is a 10 ohm , 2 watt resistor. The other resistor is 220 ohm. This only limits the current to the LED.

The 10 ohm resistor burnt because the battery pack was left to sit too long without use and charging. So the cells shorted causing excessive current through the resistor when you attempted to charge the batteries.

After replacing the resistor, you will need to replace the battery pack before charging. Otherwise, you'll just burn the resistor again.

Have new battery nd alternator however after a few minutes running the battery is dead and cluster info center not working.

The instrument cluster itself is probably going to be your problem. If it has a burnt wire or corroded diodes, it will cause your battery to drain quickly. Unfortunately, there is no simple solution to your problem without testing wires and relays. Im sorry i could not have been of more help

I have been having trouble with my car stereo system

First reinspect your power and ground connections, vibration may have loosened them.

Then be sure that amp location has proper ventilation, (overheating will cause shout down)
A 2400 in a closed space will definitely need exhaust fans to help circulate cool air around the amp.

The cap should be mounted close to the amp and properly charged before use. It is connected in-line with the main power lead paying close attention to the power in and power out terminals.

Power in = from the battery
Power out = to the amp

Good luck

I have got a renualt clio extreme 1.2 16v 2005 year. When i got it few week later it started to give me problem which was the drivers side window. When i drve the window use 2 go down it self without me...

When it is the relay either it does not work, or get stuck half of the way, working erratically.
I do not think the relay can cause the window to go down automatically by itself.

It looks more like a contact either on the window wiring , or on the window switch, the wirings must be tested, starting from switch side, and ending on window side behind the panel.
At some point there must be a contact that with car vibration triggers the window motor.
