What i did to fix my phone. was i looked down where you place the charger and i looked to see that all the cord like tings at the bottom were sticking straight out. some weren't and when i fixed the bent cords, the car-kit was gone.

I had this problem, used TanyaAD138's approach. I found debris (grassy fibers and small sand) jammed in the charging port. Got those out with a small brush used for cleaning electric razor. Still said "car kit" THEN I got to see the small patch of corrosion that had developed under the dirt, spanning maybe 4 pins. Went in a pointed tweezer tip and gently dislodged the corrosion material. The phone then reverted to its normal state. Thanks!

YOWZA .. Car kit means the pins in the charging port are either liquid damaged or bent and touching eachother.

with a tooth brush and some NON Corrosive cleaning spray .. try cleaning out the port ... Canned air wouldn't be a bad idea either.

If the damage isn't bad you can usually take the phone out of car kit, but if liquid has corroded the board then im afraid it's time for a new phone.

Where is the rod to take the spare tire down?

Sounds like a truck. Either a fold up in the spare tire tool kit. Possibly against back wall. Behind back seats. Are usual locations.

Have a Mastertemp 250, heard a bang, then water started leaking out of exaust. What could the problem be?

25620249-iwrnrkacomuoeuyhvucmvd0t-2-0_0.gif That is a diagram of the components of your heater.
Item #1 the Heat Coil or to be more precise, the Heat tube Sheet Coil Assembly Kit had BURST.
That is found within the tightly enclosed round chamber with the tightened securing screws on top and completely sealed with the Red Silicone sealant. Water is only to be in that coil assembly. When you heard the loud pop, it ruptured and water is now in the round chamber, which is a the Heat Chamber! Hot air exits that thru the exhaust, but you have water exiting now.

You can replace it yourself... it is a rather tedious job and laborious, but if your up to it, I think you may be able to do???
If not, call a service professional, preferably a Certified Pentair Tech, experienced in MasterTemp Tube Coil replacement.

I will include some pictures of the last one I performed a Heat Coil Replacement. If you choose to do it yourself, ensure that when you order a replacement kit, that it has a tube of High Heat/Temperature Silicone Sealant, the RED stuff. You will also need to know the date of manufacture of your specific heater!!! The kit changed back on January 12, 2009...
Pre that change date part # 460747
After that date, # 474059

Good Luck

Erratic garage door opener

It is an adjustment problem. Any obstruction and the door goes up again. So try adjusting again but don't leave space to invite rodents that will cause damage to car wiring. I am just going thru that.

My phone has no sound, and it now says "-Car Kit-" WHY?

Firstly i come to your 2nd question where you asked what the meaning of Car Kit. Bro Car Kit means a sound system which contain also blue tooth, DVD, FM etc. So in Car Kit any one can pair their blue tooth devices i mean your cell phone where blue tooth are available. So when you pair your device at the define range then Car Kit will be connected with your phone so when your receive or dial a call then the Car kit speaker will be active automatically. You can hear voice from there.
Now come to your next question,
If your Car is off or you are so far from car then your speaker will be enable normally but if it don't work then means your speaker disable or inactive. As a result, you have to change your speaker by a expert technician then you will release from this problem. Thanks a lot

Car kit mode

Car kit mode is usually caused by debris in the phone's cable connector (at the bottom of the phone). The debris causes two or more contacts to be electrically connected to each other, causing the phone to think it's connected to a car kit. Remove the battery from the phone and clean the cable connector contacts with some rubbing alcohol and the corner of a towel. Also, try using an opened paperclip to scrape the contacts in the connector, this will remove any corrosion that may have built up.

Set to car kit.

I reinserted the wall charger a couple of times and it made the "car kit" go away. My guess is that two pins in the little connector inside the phone somehow got shorted together (dust or something). I saved the butter knife soloution for my last ditch attempt as I wasn't sure that shorting all the pins wouldn't increase the chances of damage to the phone. The post above definitely go the creative juices flowing since we had no idea how it got in "car kit" mode.

Car kit

same problem....i found a neat solution to this one..see if it works for you too...i simply charged my phone as much as possible, drove to a nearby lake(you should do this while its light outside for best effect's to be noticed), and then i THROUGH the damn thing as farrrrr as sure that you spend the time so as to take it all in..then, go to your nearest retailer and get any new phone that does not say LG on the worked for me and i'm glad to say that it definetly decreased any homicidile thoughts i had been having due to the issue.

It's actually something wrong with your phone. The connector on the bottom of the phone may have gotten wet. If you are comfortable taking the phone apart you can clean the connector w/ 99.5% isopropyl alcohol and a soft bristled brush. Good luck.
