Nothing is coming on at all..once in a while when I brought it home I would see the power button flash but would not turn on when I got home I took it out to make sure all connections were connected.and the Ves system does not come on but DVD light is a steady flash

O.k., the issue with the radio problem you see here is usually due to an internal electrical fault in the radio itself with it needing removed and repaired by an authorized repair center or removed and replaced.This was a common issue unfortunately in some cases.

As for the head light issue this is most commonly caused by the head light bulb igniter either attached to the back of the bulb or connected to the bulb with wiring.The igniter usually fails and causes the issue you are seeing.In some cases it can cost more then the bulb itself.You would need to have the signals tested to the igniter to make sure it is the cause then it can be replaced from there.This is done with a multi meter.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete

I was skeptical at first but thought I'd give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised. Your site actually is a quality service that I would recommend to others in a heartbeat.

StanSayre, PA

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
