Having problems with your 2000 Chrysler LHS ?

I have a 2000 LHS Crysler I bought at auction. The instrument panel lights will not turn off even when the car is off. It is killing the battery. We checked the fuse inside the car and under the hood, they are both fine. We disconnected the radio to see if it had any connection, but it made no difference.

Radio Dead I've got an 1997 LS-400 - best car I ever had. The radio has always worked fine - but for some of the display graphics dying out. Last week I had the timing belt replaced. I get the car back - it runs fine, but as I'm driving down the road, I see the radio is blank. I hit the power button - nothing. I brought it back to mechanic - he says it has nothing to do with him. He says "radio must have died". He checked the fuse under the hood and in fuse panel inside car - which were good. He


When it comes to independent auto shops, its tough to get them to take responsibility if they did something wrong, thats why most people with a car as nice as your wouldnt trust it to just any shop. Theres nothing in a timing belt job that would caus ... 1997 Lexus LS 400

05 jetta gls- battery keeps going dead- had alternator and battery tested-fine. with car out of ignition and radio turned off, when you open the door you can hear a pop from the speaker- like the amp is still on? could this be the drain? also- hood latch sensor needs to be disconnected in order for the alarm to "chirp". apparently the sensor is faulty, could this drain the battery?


I think you answered your own question; I highly suspect the amp. I am an experienced audio repair tech. Your description infers you have a separate amp; it should have a heavy power, a heavy ground, and a light remote (to the amp on and ... 2007 Volkswagen Jetta 2.5 Sedan

MBZ E320 CDI (2003), The CD, Radio and navigation system not working. The car battery became flat after having my car parked for 35 days, so I jump started the car and it started fine. But the CD, radio and navigation system does not seem to be working now. I have checked all the fuses on the driver side dashboard and the boot, all the fuses seem to be fine. I disconnected the battery for about 5 minutes thinking it will reset the system but no luck. Can someone please help?

I have a 2005 Nissan Altima. Last night I jump started a friend's car. The jumper cables were connected wrong. We saw smoke and instantly disconnected them. I drove home fine, but this morning my car won't start. It has gas, the lights and radio are working fine so it's not the battery (is it?). I keep hearing my main fuse may be blown. How do I know? About how much/long wold that take to correct this problem?


Did you see the smoke before or after you jumpstarted the car? if it was before the cables were hooked up incorrectly and with the switched polarity it can not only kill your battery but also computer components. if the smoke was after the jump start ... Nissan Altima

Mopar remote start issue. It was installed by the dealer and worked fine for a while but now It will try to start, (radio comes on, seat moves forward, etc,) and i can hear clicking noise from under the hood, but it never actually tries to start the car, and just beeps twice. I don't think it is a hood switch issue because if i open the hood to engage the switch and try to start, it come back immediatly with 2 beeps. With hood closed i can hear clicking noise and it takes a few seconds befor


Many of these remote start units are defective or the install was done with the wrong type of connectors and a poor connection is the problem, suggest the best thing to do is have the dealer who installed it take a look at their work. ... 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I am experiencing an intermittent no start problem (no starter, radio doesn't work with key in the on position, doors locks get accuated) with a 2003 Jetta TDI. If I disconnect the battery and reconnect it the car will start without problem except the brake warning light and some others flash and the warning beeper sounds. The flashing lights and beeping sometimes also happens when I open the windows when the car is running. The car runs fine.


First check your parking brake is fully released. If the parking brake lever is slighty applied. It will give you the "BRAKE" or(!) warning light and the chime will sound.---- Get the brake system cleaned , might just be a wheel sensor. Mine ac ... 2003 Volkswagen Jetta TDI

When we tried to start our 2007 Suzuki XL-7 this morning, we heard a loud crack (like an electrical spark). Now when you turn on the key. all lights, radio, etc. work fine. Turning the key to start the engine results in a single click from under the hood but the starter does not turn. Battery connections are good and battery is fine (all other electrical systems work fine and do not drag down when trying to start the car as would happen with a weak battery or bad battery connection). Is there a

When trying to load a CD the radio displays the message "INITIALIZING" then nothing happens. The radio itself works fine. could it be because I just got the car back from the body shop and the battery was disconnected.


That might be true. I'm not sure, but it could be the CD because it's scratched up. it is probably because the battery was disconnected. Hope this helps!?\012\012\012Please rate solution - Thanks. ... 2005 Chevrolet Equinox

I changed out the stock stereo in my 2007 chrysler 300 base car. Now the a/c cluster does not work. Any ideas? All fuses are good, stereo works fine. I don't see any broken wires. Now there was two connectors going to the stock radio and I just needed one. I can't beleive that a/c control goes through the radio connector. Also I have the airbag inop caution lit on the dash while I am driving. Is there a firewall disconnect somewhere that I may have pulled loose that is common to both problems?

Car ran fine earlier today. Parked it and now it won't start. Battery is fine, radio, lights, accessories all work. Starter motor does not click when key is turned.

This means that the battery is probably good. Next you need to check if the cables are bad or the starter is bad. Corrosion on the cables can prevent the starter from receiving enough power to start. With a voltmeter, first make sure that ... 1998 Oldsmobile Intrigue

Code wire(s) I hope someone can solve a code wire connection problem Iam having. I had a transmission put in my car sometime ago and the mechnic told me that he had to disconnect the code wires under the dashbroad in order for the transmissiom to shift beyond 1st gear(Automatic). At the time I thought why would he need to do that? Anyway, the transmission shifts fine but the problem is after I had reinstalled a new battery I could not put the code in to get my radio to come back on again because

The turn signal lights turn on but don't blink and also the under the hood light, the trunk light and the "dome" light inside the car don't come on at all. I checked the fuses and they all look fine. And also the radio doesn't work, only the tape player works.

My radio is not working in my car. It was fine and then one day it just wasn't working; which has also affected my door chimes. I've checked the fuses and wiring and everything seems to be fine. The radio is working properly...maybe it's the amp? It's a 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix with the Monsoon system ("Bose" appears on the display part on the radio). Also, my car seems to have trouble starting. When I start my car, it'll try to start, but then immediately shuts off (sputters and dies). So


Get a new radio. Or an aftermarket radio with $180 adaptor. Sucks, but the radio ties into the security of the car, which may be effecting your starter. Sorry, these are probably the only options.\015\012\015\012Heres a link about securit ... Pontiac Grand Prix

A few days ago, I turned my car, a 1995 Ford Taurus, on and everything was working fine and then it was almost as if the car had stalled, but it was still driving. The radio turned off, the power steering turned off, but when I shut it off and turned it back on, everything worked fine. Until today. I drove it around fine all day,and when I went to my friend's and was about to leave, the car wouldn't start. It sounds like the battery is dead, but the lights, radio, windows all worked.
