Every aftermarket deck that is put in a vehicle slides into a metal sleeve into the dash. This metal sleeve serves two purposes 1.) To secure the deck inside the dash 2.) Serves as a theft deterrent
First thing you want to do is remove the faceplate. Second there will be a bezel (plastic ring that goes around the faceplate. This will be attatched to the deck and not the faceplate. It just snaps in all you have to do is apply pressure with one of your fingers to the edge and it should just come off. Now if you get this far you should be able to see the metal sleeve I spoke of earlier on the outside edge. The way the sleeve is designed it has perforations that act as little clips when the deck is initially installed. There are tools that are sold to apply pressure to these clips to disengage the deck. In the past I have done it simply with two butter-knives. You insert one on each side preferably in the center, this is where the clips will most likely will be. Both sides will have to be disengaged, at this point with them inserted you should just be able to pull it right out of the dash. Oh before you even get to the deck be sure to remove any dash pieces that are going to obstruct your movement. If you need anymore help then let me know

2006 trailblazer factory installed DVD has sound but no screen. The screen intermittently comes on, it stays on once it works but if we turn the vehicle off, we get the intermittent behavior. Has an

the factory dvd decks are designed to disable the dash display when the car is running, to negate distracted driving. the factory wires the rear seat dvd displays only to work when car is running, and the dash to work only when the car is either acc, or, possibly, in park.

if the dash is intermittent, and, especially, if the dash display has some dvd video while running(or, more dangerously, when in drive) then a previous owner likely tried to bypass this safety feature by crossing wires under the dash, and did a poor job.

otherwise, lcd screens can become intermittent, in regards to powering on or off, if the backlighting regulating circuits start to fail. this would be an issue with the deck itself, and is merely due to old age (nearly 8 years)

. the hallmark of this problem would be if you were to hold a flashlight to the screen, and see a faint display,- simply lacking the florescent back-lighting.

I have a 2004 f250 6.0 diesel P/U. The previous owner installed a cold air intake. My engine air filter dash light came on so I removed and cleaned and re-oiled the filter. The light went off but is back...

Did you use too much oil? You don't need to use very much or the air has trouble passing through it. Also did you reset the filter minder? It should be located near the filter. You have to press the yellow button on the top of it and the spring will push it up and reset it. If it is still in the red it will keep the light on.

Where is the fuse box for the horn and lights located in the car

It entirely depends on the year and model. Most older trucks had the fuses all together under the dash near the steering column. Newer trucks seem to favor a spot under the hood. Some seem to have some under the dash near the feet and another under the hood. Without knowing the year and model though it is impossible to tell you for sure. check those spots out real quick and if you still cant find it post back with the year and model

Tring to install blutooth to my xdma7715 dual cd player

The Dual XDMA7715 unit does require a separate module called the Dual BTM60, as technically the XDMA7715 is a "Bluetooth Ready" cd player.

Assuming you have bought this module, the next thing you need to do is 'Pair it" with your mobile device, which I will assume is your cell phone. This keeps it from connecting with other people's cell phones as they drive by your car.

Before you begin, you need to prepare your phone for paring. Check your cell phone's users manual if these instructions don't apply, but generally this means you find the Bluetooth menu on your phone, turn bluetooth on, and make the phone 'visible' which means your stereo will be able to see it in order to pair up with it. Usually, turning visibility on only lasts for about 30 seconds, so you may have to try this more than once to get the timing done right. Once paired, you won't need to turn the phones visibility on again until the next time you pair a device.

Now that your cell phone is ready to pair with the stereo,

1) Press the Phone symbol on the cd player or the BTM60, pr press MODE until 'DUAL_BTM60" is displayed.

2) Press and hold the phone symbol on the cd player or the BTM60 for 5 seconds, until "PAIRING" is displayed. The Bluetooth icon will flash every second. The Cd player will broadcast its "availability" for 60 seconds.

3) Complete the pairing from the Bluetooth menu of your cellphone by selecting "Search for new devices". When they find each other, the Bluetooth icon will illuminate solid, and your phone will say it has found device "DUAL_BTM60", and ask you for a password to pair it.

The BTM60 device name is "DUAL_BTM60".
The password you enter into your phone to accept the pairing is "1234"

Now that the devices are paired, you should be able to make calls handsfree, and play music stored on your phone.

I hope that helps.

OK, I found my code. Under the dash on the driver's side is the fuse box, it should be over your left foot. On the BACK side of the fusebox is the Smart Junction Box, and the 5-digit code is printed on it very plainly (too bad the fuse box is in the way). It's possible to remove the three nuts holding the fusebox down and turn it around, but there are so many wires holding it in place that it's nearly impossible. What I did was to get out my digital camera, put it in close-up macro mode, and worm it in behind the steering column, aimed at the back of the fusebox. I took about 20 pictures of the back of the fusebox, and one of the pictures showed the code.

You need to buy a ford wiring harness. They are about $22 at Best Buy. If you want to hardwire the unit to your car then you need to get the wiring colors from Ford. It is 100x times easier to just buy the wire harness.

Dual boot

hi wtm78 this is nichu,
it is impossible to install win 98 after installing xp,if you want to install win98 you must remove the winxp and then first install win98 and later you can install winxp,
basically it is impossible to install a lower order software when xp is already installed,in your case it is the same
there will be no things like dual boot or anything ,after booting your system asks whether you want to work with win98 or winxp.
be cool.

take care
bye and have a nice day.
