Well.... I thought installing a new aftermarket radio on my 2002 4runner would be easy..... Well it went in great and CD player sounds great, however I noticed it would NOT scan radion stations like the factory radio. After looking through the windshield, I noticed the power antenna was DOWN.... Then realized there were 2 seperate antenna plugs in the dash but the new radio only utilizes the larger one. Is the smaller one for the power antenna? And how the world am I supposed to hook it up to th

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

I have a new 2010 Conversion Van with a built in DVD system. Every time I turn off and on the van the player has to be restarted with the power button and the dvd memory is never saved. Is this common in cars since they don't have a permement power supply like a home player?
Sounds like the memory wire is not hooked up or not hooked up to a constent power supply ... 2009 Chevrolet Express
I have a 1998 pontiac grand am 3100 series v6. I am trying to remove the power steering pump for clearance to change the cam position sensor. I am stuck on the motor mount. I have removed the 5 bolts and the engine moved back as expected, but to get to the power steering mounts it looks like I have to remove the part the motor mount was attached to and it looks like the bolts attaching it are welded in different spots. I have partially rounded one of the bolts, and am completely stuck there unti

I already wired the radio unit in to the 1977 ford highboy and it all correct. But the radio unit is not powering on because the power cord for the unit witch is the original ford highboy radio power cord is not connected to the power source. i cant locate where the wire runs to the engine because of the wires around it. There all taped with electrical tape what do i look for? like a *** color. Or something. And where would i connect the wire?
Run a wire directly to the positive battery post and it will be a simple solution to your problem ... Cars & Trucks

Where is the crankshaft sensor on a 1995 chevy corsica 3.1 v6? The harmonic balance is gone. I know there are 2 sensors...1 looks like a horseshoe plate that goes behind the power steering pump (i think). The other spark plug boot looking one I am not sure. There is a plug, I believe 2 prong male female that is permanently seated on the bottom of the oil pan. It was dirty and dripping with oil. How do I replace these?

Low midrange power and very poor acceleration. I replaced the air filter and spark plugs, checked the wires and they looked fine. It pulls out ok and bogs down at mid throttle, then if you keep applying fuel it picks back up. It will also miss and run poor if you let off the gas slightly. When I pulled the plugs they looked like it's burning a little lean, but maybe that's normal.
Check fuel pressure/filters and airflow meter. ... 1999 Saturn SL
Looking for the Block Heater Power Cord. Didn't have one when purchased used. And no it is not hidden anywhere. I have checked all the places. Ford says this part is obsolete and I don't want to have to add a clucky power plug dangling from the front of my car as an alternative to the propriatary horizontal type plug it has. Does anyone have one they can sell me. I get -40 temps in the winter and maybe you don't.

Fuel leak on 2008 duramax. Fuel is filling valley but bus starts, runs, has not lost power so I'm thinking return side. I can barely see the back of the pump from inside dog box, looks like wet around plug in back of pump, but thought if plug was leaking truck would show signs of loss of power, or no start. I have taken apart the whole front of motor down to pump and still see no return line leaking nor a sensor. Just wanted to know if anyone has come across this before and has an educated idea

There is no heat or a/c. The fan does not blow. I have checked the fuse (it was good). I checked for power at the fan motor. There is no poser at the fan motor plug, no power at the fan switch (at plug) in the console. I replaced a relay which was located on the drivers side (under hood on wheel well) which looked like it had over heated, but there was no change. I do not get any voltage at the a/c compressor. I do get a small amount of voltage (maybe 2 or 3 volts) at the pressure switch

I found a few flat, round (chain-like)pieces of metal on the drain plug when I replaced the transfer case fluid in my 2000 2.0L 4-door Cheverolet Tracker. It seems to shift fine in and out of 4H and 4L. I'm wondering if I do nothing am I looking at a more serious expensive problem down the road? Any idea what these metal chain-link looking pieces are from and what I might be looking at in repair cost.
It is the drive chain in the transfer case that is coming apart.Once it breaks,it will not operate any longer,and should not tear up anything,but lose of 4 wheel drive will occur.I hope this helps,and if so,please let us know,thank you. ... Chevrolet Tracker
