Hi your assumption is wrong the light blinks for meny diffrent reasons: 1) power is too low - check the battery of the car 2) connections are wrong 3) the AMP is in safe mode here is the manual of the product: here is the home page: good luck

What's wrong? My Lowrance Mark 5x dsi depth finder flashes or pulsates a depth of 60 ft. All the time.

Since the unit powers up, we can pretty much eliminate a power supply problem.

I would start by carefully inspecting your transducer lead for kinks, crushing etc. Assuming the cable is OK, clean and lubricate (silicone spray, safe for plastics) the cable end and where the cable connects to the unit.

Hope this is helpful to you.

Pulsating power drain

1/2 amp is just the computer drain. The rule is if it is not at least a 1 amp drain don't worry about it.

Can not get air out of front harley brake line

Your pulsating problem is probably caused by warped rotors, not your brake line.

Just purchased led rear replacement assembly hooked up and LEDs are pulsating on idle

Led lights are great the only problem with them, sense they use way less energy to operated, they are also more sensitive to engine. Most the time it is a ground issue. If your original non led light, did not have this problem, and now with the LED, it does it, then you need to ground it on frame, or another spot that does not continue at all in through engine components. Its kind of like headlights on bikes and cars, IF you notice on a lot of bikes, when head lights are on, and you rev engine, lights get little brighter. Same kind of thing with LED, difference is the LED , sense are brighter, but require less power to operate, the draw back is more sensitive to power surges or anything on engine. So, try and ground it in different spot, or run additional ground. And try to not have hot wire in main component circuit. Thanks Mike

When i plugg in my rca cables to my amplifer in my car it pulsates the sub really bad.

does the amp light flash with the pulses? if so the amp may be bad, you may have a bad or too small of a ground wire, or the amp may just be pushing too hard. turn the amp power down and see if it takes care of it.

ABS brakes not working

If you can feel the pedal pulsating and the light turns on the Abs is doin its job. if you want a better stop you could try a brake pad upgrade to ceramic pads and for even more stoping power add an after market drilled and sloted rotors.

I have an 89 Jeep Wagoneer inline 6. Its not

You got the ignition cover, what you need to do an cylinder compression test and also check your injector for voltage while engine running hook test light to battery pos on neg and neg on pos, at injector harness check for pulsation, if you have pulsation elec. system ok, if good compression bad injector.if bad compression piston ring's or valve's.

1000w Sony Xplode car amp

Sounds like the power supply is shutting down because of it sensing a bad output channel. I'm assuming of course that you have checked all your battery, ground, and trigger wires to see if they are OK. Good luck.
