Question about Kenwood DNX5120 DVD Navigation System GPS Receiver

1 Answer

Losing phone book info

I have the DNX5120 w/ BT-200. I was able to download my phone book, but after killing the engine and then, later on, starting it back up, my phone book info is gone. The only thing that automatically downloads upon connecting is my incoming and outgoing call logs, but the phone book does not. I did see something on line about updating the BT-200, but I'm not sure this would fix the problem. Any thoughts?

    I have been to soundomain and I did do the BT200 update. It's actually working, I just have to go into my bluetooth settings and designate the phone as a special device. After that, the phonebook downloads fine. I just have to do this everytime I start the car.

    Just had the thing installed and got the BT-200 and the HD Turner and my installer said at this point I can only do one or the other so had the HD Tuner put in and every time the system powers down all the resets are lost?

I believe that the 5120 has an EPROM issue and has to be serviced. at least with the HD adapter that's the issue(losing presets).

Why won't my Husqvarna 150 BT blower shut off? It starts and runs great, but won't kill with the switch.

Kill switch most likely has broken wire between switch and engine. When in "kill" position, it should connect the top of the sparkplug to the rest of the engine. If it doesn't, either the switch is bad or the wire is.

Trans slip when pulling toy hauler

Heat is killing your transmission. Change the transmission oil and filter and slow down. Pulling something that heavy is best with a manual transmission.

Engine timing for a 1998 subaru forester with a 2.5

Since ignition timing is taken care of by the ECU, I guess you are asking about cam timing.
There are several marks to be aligned and if you get them wrong, you may trash your engine so I am only going to suggest you buy a Haynes service manual that has numerous good pix that show you exactly how to avoid killing your engine. And, unless you have a good-size vice well-mounted, compressing the belt tensioner again is going to give you fits.
The Haynes number you need is 89100 but it is listed only as a manual for the Legacy which uses the same engine but there may be less info that is usable on your '98 forester for which Haynes does not make a specific manual.
The later book that I have, 89101, covers all models from 2000 to 2006.
