1996 Ford Explorer Radio Not Working

\015 I just purchased an explorer from a friend. The car has been sitting for about a year. She stated the last time she drove the car the radio worked. I checked the fuse box under the hood but everything is ok. Is there a switch I need to look for to reset the system or something. I am going on an 8 hour long drive with the kids and I am really starting to panic:)\015 Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 22-01-2018
