I have a 2002 dodge caravan and nothing thats powered from the ignition such as radio, wipers, turns, blower etc, is working, also the battery is being drained within a day

First, remove the battery - charge it fully, then load test it. If it tests good. Set the battery back in the battery compartment and connect the positive cable. Then run a test light (you can get a cheap one at harbor freight tools) between the negative battery terminal from the car to the negative terminal on the battery (basically complete the circuit with the test light in the middle). If you have a big current draw, the test light will light. If the test light lights up, leave it connected and go to the fuse box and start from the top and remove and install one fuse at a time. Do this until the test light goes out. When the test light goes out, you'll know what circuit your problem is on.

Go here and look up the wiring diagram. then put the fuse back in and start removing components on that circuit (for example, if the radio is on the same circuit just go down the list of items connected to that circuit and disconnect and reconnect one at a time until the test light goes back off), when it goes off, you have found your source of current draw.

If you start this process and the test light does not light during the first step, you will need a DC Amp Clamp meter to read the smaller current draw (sears has a AMP CLAMP METER that does DC AMPS for around $50). In this case, you would connect both battery terminals (connect positive first), then use the AMP CLAMP on the DC AMP setting to read the current draw and repeat the same process as mentioned above.

Please reply if you have any further questions.

Hope this helps!

On my yaesu ft-757gx when I key up then speak the output goes to zero,the dial goes black sometimes relays click and the mode switches to lsb until the key is released.

Sounds like the power supply is faulty and dying when the transmitter demands current. Perhaps a loose connection or dirty relay contact.

My Sony XMGTR2022 goes into protect mode at

I discovered that there is a compatiblilty problem between the Bose receiver and the Sony amplifier. If I disconnect the receiver from the amp then the amp starts up normally. Apparently the receiver sends out a dc offset or a "thump" that the amplifier doesn't like and goes into protection mode. I solved the problem by putting a 1 second delay circuit between the receiver startup and the amplifier startup. A simple RC delay on the remote input to the amplifier solved the problem.

My car got a buster jump yesterday and now my screen doesnt work

Make sure you have the radio code found inside your model information packet inside your glovebox…it will be on the radio and communications pamphlet. It is in safe-mode right now, so press and hold the FM button and the scan button until 1000, or whatever number is stored in your safe mode, appears. Enter your code by selecting the pre-set radio station buttons until the corresponding number appears; press and hold the FM button and scan button again and your radio should be reset.
