My 2001 mitsubishi mirage has a code to enter to turn the radio back on after the car dies, and i put the wrong code in and it has locked me out and says ''OFF'' all the time. I have the correct code now and would love to be able to enjoy my radio again, but it won't let me try to enter the code anymore, i've tried disconnecting and reconnecting the battery and unhooking and rehooking the wires in the back of the radio...etc...nothing works...

I noticed my truck didnt want to start like it had a weak battery. I drove it anyway and first my abs light came on, then I started losing all my accessories like radio power windows, etc. I got towed home after truck quit running. I charged the batteries up last night, truck runs but still no gauges, glow plug light doesnt work, radio doesnt work, and I still have not changed the alternator. I took it to auto zone and had it checked they said it was not charging my batteries, but if I do change

All of you accessories can't run from the battery. The alternator has to produce 13-14 volts to you battery to keep the battery charged fully so all the accessories will work. Soon as a power source is powered on it will drain the battery quickly if ... 2003 Ford F350 Super Duty DRW SuperCab

Electrical problems? I have power windows, the back driver side door window doesnt even go down. the passenger front door doesnt go down unless the driver does it from their side, and driver side front door hesistates when it gets to a point in the window it just slows down then goes up normal, and back passenger window goes up and down from that doors button. radio illumination is on when it feels like it, right side blinker is normal when headlights are on but it blinks fast in the day time

Reads like it is a problem for an auto electrician or someone with access to the vehicles wiring diagram - presumably at some point two circuits are crossing. More likely if it is a modern car, it maybe a bit of computerised hardware that needs a fix ... 1997 Honda Civic

1997 mercury villager radio comes on and off. Like a power short. It's getting power because the radio lights are on, but when radio is turned on, it sometimes shuts off, the display lights fade, comes back on, etc. All connections seem fine. It has done this even with a new radio. I checked all connections behind dash when installing new radio.

Radio has what looks like a phone symbol on it. Nothing else works on radio. Volume knob still reacts. On star phone comes on and will disconnect. Radio, CD, etc never comes back on. Symbol stays on all the time even after opening the door.

The 2009 Saturn Aura added the bluetooth (phone) feature and many other GM models with similar looking radios had it in past model years. The 2007 did not come with bluetooth (or Human Machine Interface). \015\012\015\012There are two possibi ... 2007 Saturn Aura XR Sedan

I have a 2002 Honda Accord. Apparently I have a relay issue with the starter. Battery 12V check. Fuses ok. When I turn the key, and the relay engages which shuts down the nonessential systems prior to starting, I hear a "frying" sound behind the passenger side fuse panel and the power goes dead. No starter no radio no lights. Remove the key and wait a few minutes. I put the key back in and I have radio, lights, etc... Everything seems fine until I turn the key to the start position. So

Ok so that wasn't it. Three days later problem came back. Replaced battery cables. Problem goes away for another few days. Came back again and found what I think is finally it. Engine Cut Out Relay in the power distribution box. (of note the e ... 2002 Honda Accord

I just had my amp and sub instaled but the screen on the plastic cover (for the milliages, day, and if some thing is wrong) doesnt want to come back on. is it cause it only runs on the stock radio or can i buy some wireing and hook it back up. can some one help please

Probably loosened up or didn't plug something back up when you were messing around with all that wiring. Make sure you did not short a wire. If it was working before it should be working after because it has nothing to do w the radio. good luck ... 2005 Pontiac Grand Prix

When i turn the key the radio cuts off ( which i believe is normal when starting ) but the engine doesnt do anything. Not even a click

This sounds like you may have a starter issue. Have someone in the vehicle to try cranking and hold it in this position. You go underneath and attempt to tap the starter with a small hammer to see if it frees it up. If it does, replace your starter. ... 1984 Chevrolet S-10

My wife had a DVD player and a Sirius radio installed by an audio installer and now there is no power to the dashboard center console. That includes the heater, fan, air conditioner, defrosters, etc. ... even the button backlit lights are out. The dashboard gauges work and those lights work and the radio works as well. I checked all of the fuses and they are all good. Any ideas where I should look to fix this? I'd like to have some sort of idea before I go back to the installer. Thanks.

Take it back to the installer, it is thier problem. \015\012\015\012if you really want to do it yourself, it is most likley the junction connector for the dash behind the radio, most likley unplugged ... Mitsubishi Endeavor

Electric problem It started when I tried to unlock my doors with remote. I had to manualy open, when I got in the car the dome light and front seat lights wouldn't work, also the radio no longer had any stations programed in and the clock time was wrong. Sometimes when I turn the car on and off things will start working again. Then today the radio no longer was working either. Again sometimes if you turned the car off it would come back on.

Instrument Cluster BMW E36 328i. While driving the tacho, speedo, gas and temp needles go to zero. After 30 seconds or so, they come back on. When they come back on, i see 4 icons displayed (the yellow transmission icon, the disk pad worn icon, the next icon [circle surrounded by dots, ABS?], and the park break icon), and i hear a small ping from a speaker. After about 3 seconds the icons go off, everything is ok. The stereo is uninterrupted and driving lights stay on etc, car doesnt lose power.
