my car find it difficult to climb through an incline road or a hill when i put on the AC. i have never worked on the Ac b4
I had my stock head unit go into safe mode as well, but, read into it too late and the tape deck now unusable. Oh well, besides the fact I had just installed
Led my 4 brand new Kenwood 6.5s.. Uhg!!
So, a month later I have a paycheck that is all mine(sadly I work at autozone and still can’t find the right info I’m requesting in the following lines, lol) , I buy a Pioneer deh-p2600 deck, a cheap dual 500w ten in sub in a box and a kicker 300dx.2 amp, all the wires and rcas, yadda yadda..
Now I notice that my cars wires are completely different than the decks… Oh no, right? No, I download both diagrams and (think i) have it connected. The moment of truth… Turn the key to acc and… Nothing not a light a click or even a pop…
So.. My kind fellows, I need advice… I still need to do:
*run wires for amp
*get power to deck
*avoid buying the adapter because I am a broke joke.
*identify and check all related fuses.
*? give thanks to this site and any of you fine gentleman that can help me with advice. Instructions, pix, anything..
*I’m sure there are a ton of things left out, but this is my first install.
my car wont start because of the immobilizer wont work,Its one those, old types, where you stick it in by the car, (flashing red light) the immobilizer looks like a usb. How can I disconnect it or bypass it that I get to a garage.
The car trys to start but it looks like it don't get no fuel.
Indicator lights went from not working intermittently to blinking twice or four times as fast when activated.
When brakes are depressed, left indicator does not work. As soon as brakes are released, indicator works again. Left indicator blinks at 2x normal speed, right indicator binks at 4x speed.
Left brake light stays on when car is off.
Trunk open warning in dash is on all when car is running, trunk is definitely closed.
Tried switching the relay with one salvaged from a wrecked car, but this did not solve the problem.
As a side note, the intermittent wiper setting does not work at all either.
All bulbs are fine. All wires seem to be connected.
