Once the code is in there you cant"clear" the code. Im told its a secret on how they change the code but a little birdy told me you have to change the small 8 pin eeprom to setup code back to all 0000's Your gonna need a manual unless your local Kenwood servicer will assist you.

Gps screen not working

Hi your problem can be caused by any fuse that supplements the power to screen check voltages that feed the screen.
also can be your back light is working a way to prove your back light is , turning on the radio in a dark place and bring a flashlight and tries to see something on the display if something is provably which is only your back light and if it is not that the new screen does not works

Another reason could be that the flex cable that you are using that was connected to your old screen and this defective, also check the connection of the flex cable on the screen may be that in the process of Assembly is disconnected.

I have a 1999 Yukon, ran fine, I pulled the positive cable to clear check engine light while I cleaned it out, put the cable back on, starts, runs 2 seconds, shuts right back off, it is a flex-fuel system,...

You've triggered the anti theft security system. You will have to take it t a dealership to have the system reset so your engine will start. Regardless of what you've been told about clearing the computer codes, taking the positive cable loose is not the way to go. All you have to do is pull the fuse or fuses that go to the ecm or engine computer. That way, you don't mess wit the security system. Your radio may be locked down too. If it is, you'll have to go through a lengthy process to get the code to unlock it.

Replaced oxygen sensor, squirrel went for a spin. Service enging soon may need to be reset. Can i do this or does it require a dealer?

remove the negative cable @ battery for 30 seconds to see if it clears the check engine light ,if it doesnt it will need to be cleared with a scanner-warning your factory radio will loose the function code when you remove the battery cable,make sure you have the code otherwise your radio will not work

Hi friends,I need a code for my mercedes audio 10 cd. Model no.MF2910 A 170 820 03 86 S/NO.AL291020180734 B Thanks a lot for help!!!

Unfortunately this is an Alpine make of radio and the code will not be available for free from anywhere on the Internet.

This code is only available from the Main Merc Dealer or a Radio Decoding Service (who will connect it to a laptop to read the memory chip (EEPROM)   )

It mean you have damaged scanner. Disassemble the printer then change flex cable, if problem still exist try to change scanner.

Flex cable change

If you buy one without camera then yes you do have to take it off the old one and put it on the new one. My best thing to do with this one is to just buy a flex with camera already on the new cable. The camera has very small parts and it is very delicate if you are not sure how to take them and move them to the new one. It is not that much more to just buy with camera and you don't have to worry about it working if it is a fully functional flex cable new. I hope this helps if you need more help let me know and I will do my best to walk you through. If you want to try to take the camera off and put it on the new one I can walk you through but I cannot guarenteed on your end it will work. Like I said very fragile and delicate. Good luck!!

Code for dryer vent connections

Yes, the semi-rigid metal flex tubing is recommended because it resists crushing, crimping, collapsing and heat. The old plastic flex hoses would collapse easily, develop more clogs, melt and rodents could chew through them easily. When installing a new flex hose, the SHORTER and STRAIGHTER you can keep the run, the better. The more bends you have, the greater possiblity you have of creating areas where lint can clog. I hope this helps you. Post back if you need further guidance.

Keypad frozen, still receives calls

Hi, You don't need 2 flash your razr for this problem. What u need is a screen flex cable. The three buttons around the screen are controlled by a flex cable and the voice recorder is connected on this flex cable.This needs replacing but it's very tricky to deal with. I suggest a really good tech that deals with razr's to handle this problem to possibly replace the flex cable. This would solve yor frozen keypad problem. SAM !
