I found a used Chrysler radio/CD unit from the junk yard. It works fine but she says it will hop around the CD. Does any one have, or know where to get a owners manual?

CD player randomness

So I got the wife a factory CD player for her '02 Neon last year, and now she says it skips form song to song. Not having an owners manual I'm not sure how to get it to play sequentially.

Couldn't find the reset button, but I hit the eject button a bunch of times and that got everything to reset and realign in the cd player

Would it worth selling?

I swapped my wife's cassette player out for a dodge cd player, now i have an extra radio sitting around. Would it be worth selling, or should I just toss it?

P1684 code

My wife's 02 SOHC has a constant P1684 code. The battery is not even a year old, and the connections are pretty good. Any one have an idea what might be going on?

hood adjustment

So the hood on the wife's '02 needs to be tweaked ever so slightly. I notice that on the front right corner of it you can see where it's been hitting, but doesn't seem to be touching, any one have any suggestions

Thanks guys...I'm thinking wheel bearing now also. It's giving a continuous grinding noise. It's parked for now, but I'm taking it in tonight to get worked on.

I'll pay more attention on the way home, but I think there is a grinding/ humming noise while driving.
I know the grinding noise is louder when I turn to the right I believe, and when I take off for about a mile or so then I quiets down a little.

groaning slow speed turn

When I make a slow speed turn I get a rurh rurh rurh. Could It be a bad CV joint??? If so how much of a pain is it to swap one out?

looking on line at an owners manual (ours didn't come with one) and apparently the gas was optional on some models. We just got our car fixed and I want to make sure it's on par with what it was supposed to be.

When does the gas light come on?

Actually this is a two part question.
1. How far down into the red does the needle go before the gas light comes on, and how many gallons is that?
2. How many miles can one travel on a tank of gas?

If possible you need to determine if this is an issue caused by cold temps or not. If you have a garage that you can put a heater in overnight and hopefully keep temp above freezing that would be great. If the car starts then we know it's a cold only issue, if it doesn't start then we look at more ...

Since nobody eles asked, can you run the codes? Requires you turn the key on and off twice, then turn it on again, but never try to start it. Leaving the key on the third time should give some P series codes in the odometer. Give it a whirl before unplugging anything. I did before I changed the bat...

I got the battery checked out they said it was at 12.2 volts, and 507 out of 540 cold cranking amps. So they exchanged it....Fingers crossed
