Question about GPS

Open Question

Hi a few days ago I had a Parrot Hands Free Kit fitted, then didn't drive the car for 2 days, went to start it this morning and my battery was flat. A ticking sound was coming from the fuse box. Opened up box and located the clicking fuse, looked like it had 'popped out of place', so put it back then jumped started the car, drove to work (15mins). Do you think I have an electric fault/or wiring problem or was it just the fuse out of place?

SOURCE: Cobra -- frozen at last location

Make sure the unit is not in a location that is being blocked. The best place to have it is mounted on the windshield.

Go to the page that says GPS INFO. If you dont have any green bars then your unit is not connecting to any satelites. If this is the case just move the unit to the windshield until it connects.

If the weather is terrible it may not connect for a while.

SOURCE: 2002 Chrysler Sebring will not start

Mine did the click, click and the timing chain had snapped. If any of you have 2.7 litre engines plan on an engine rebuild or a replacement. Look up the 2.7 engine size along with oil sludge and timing chains. Grab yourself a towel to sop up the tears. This car is 100% garbage and I'm shopping for another non Chrysler product this week.

Locate the ticking noise. It is a relay that has gone bad.

SOURCE: Kawasaki Mule 3010, keeps getting flat battery, wont jump start

Sometimes when the battery keeps going dead like that, a component may be creating a current draw. you can do a simple current draw test with a fluke meter by setting the meter to read amps, make sure the test leads are in the proper portals on the fluke for an amp test, and disconnect one of the battery cables and connect the test leads in-line with the battery and cable. It would help to know you have a good fuse inside the fluke. They are easy to blow, and whatever you do, DO NOT try to start the unit with the meter hooked up for the amp draw test. That is how fuses are blown. With the key off, check for any amp draw. If there is, you can start unplugging components until the draw goes away. If there was no draw to begin with, you may have a stator coil (or alternantor, whichever it has) that is weak and can't keep up.

SOURCE: car wont start clicking noise by fuse box

Try removing the battery terminals and clean both posts and terminals. Coat same with an anti-corrosion grease. Wash your hands after this to prevent mysterious holes in your clothes. Start the engine and measure the voltage at the battery terminals--should read 13.5 to 14.5 volts. Hope this helps.

The software has crashed. You can try pulling the fuse for the parrot and it may boot back up but i would do a software update if you have had it a few years. Make sure the kit says 'goodbye' when powering off, if not then it is wired wrong. Parrot web site has a list of certified installers.
