  • carputer shut off randomly

    i have my carputer (via w/streetdeck) setup up to autorun when i start the car and auto shutdown when i turn it off...

    basically, when i was driving home from lunch today, it randomly just turned off completely and then now it won't turn back on....

    i'm really worried....any input?

    check the connections to your power supply as well as fuses...

      Some more info on your setup would help us help you a lot more... this also sounds like a hardware issue not a StreetDeck issue

                i would go back, checking all wires for melts/bare spots/loose wires/etc. all of which could cause a short = a blown fuse.

                  agreed.

                  fuses blow for a reason. Just replacing a fuse without trying to diagnose why it blew in the first place is only a short term solution. Chances are it's going to blow again.
