Answers :

First is that the stock a radio. If it's an aftermarket disconnect any amplifiers, also if there's a power antenna disconnect that sometimes they become jammed. If you still blown fuses disconnect the radio and check to see if it's still blowing fuses. If not get a wiring diagram and find out what other things are on at circuit. It's a simple process of elimination. Good luck with that.

My radio stopped working. I changed the fuse labeled CIG on the digram (under the dash fuse box) but this didn't help the radio. The clock also doesn't work but that stopped before radio did. What fuse controls the radio? No diagram says radio specifically.


Need to know your mocel and year to see if I have a diagram I can tell you the "cig" fuce is for the ciggarette lighter/power outlet. Some Toyota's the fuse for the radio is the "ACC" fuse and others say "RAD". ... Toyota RAV4

I have a '94 Jeep Cherokee 4wd 6 Cylinder. I just tried to install a radio and to my dismay it didn't work. The radio did not work previously anyways, so I tried to replace it. So, it didn't work. I then looked at the fuse that controlled the radio, power locks, etc etc. Note: the power locks and dome light did not work around the same time the radio stopped working. I find that it has been blown. I get another fuse just like it but working and replaced it. Cranked the car up and everything work


I would check the ignition switch,it is most likely the problem,the electrical part of the ignition switch,not the key cylinder,it is most likely coming apart on the inside of the switch. ... 1994 Jeep Cherokee

Electrical Problem It seems a fuse or something has blown. The doors don't lock unless the keys are in the ignition, the radio doesn't work, the antenna doesn't go down, the trip odometer resets every time I stop the car and the door open light stays on. I bought the car used and it didn't come with an owner's manual. I have 141,000 miles on it. Sweet little '99 626 5-speed that gets almost 40 mpg. Any other advice on how to keep Bella (that's her name) going another 100,000 miles? Thanks


Oh Daphne! Bella needs some care... first check the fuse related to radio,it usually protect radio and antenna motor.The trip odo problem can be located inside the dash so you have to emove it and check the macanism that runs the odometer.About the d ... 1999 Mazda 626

GMC Safari SLE Van 1997 Cd player keeps coming up with an error when you put a Cd in. I replaced the fuse for the radio and it still has the error coming up. It just stopped working.


I suspect the CD pick up is not identifying the disc, if you are using self recorded discs try a pre recorded and see if that works, if not put a head cleaner disc through, failing that it will be the head unit ... 2004 GMC Safari

The antenna stop working and now the car won't start once it's turned off. the fuse for the radio had to be taken out a few months back because the car wouldn't start. now the motor for the antenna keeps running after the car is shut off and that causes a drain on the electrical system. how can i get to the motor? do i have to take the right end fender off just to get to it since that's where the antenna is located?

Radio I have a 99 windstar.. I love it but recently my radio went out...I changed all the fuses(lost the manual so I dont know which 1 is the radio).The radio didn't come on so I got another radio same model . Radio still doesn't work. Is there something other than the fuse that woulkd keep it from working(maybe a relay or something)...Help it's to quite in my ride


Since you swapped the radio and had the same problem, it has to be a fuse or broken wiring. I don't see any relays in the path of the radio that wouldn't cause many other accessories to not be powered as well. ... 1999 Ford Windstar

The radio in my 2001 astro stopped working. I replaced the fuse and it worked for a day, then stopped again. However, the fuse also is for the odometer, which is working, so I don't think it is a fuse issue.

My 91 buick park avenue has a problem with keeping battery power. the alternator is working. when i rev the engine the battery goes up. the battery prongs are in tight and the engine will turn over. my radio used to not work, but all of a sudden it works again. since it started working again the battery wont stay charged. all the fuses are working and when i take out the radio fuses the battery still will not stay charged


Have your battery tested. If the battery is good, I suspect there is something that is ON in your vehicle. You will have to find it and secure it. With the vehicle off, you can remove each fuse in turn and measure if there is any amp traveling int ... 1991 Buick Park Avenue

2008 Ford Escape Horn fuse keeps blowing after replacing alternator. Horn sounds once then the fuse blows. Also radio and song info that displays in the dash console with the compass does not work... The compass does work but none of the radio station or song info will display. Checked all fuses but only the 20A Horn fuse continues to blow.


I would trace the wire from the horn and see if it was inadvertently damaged when the alternator was installed. If you have a voltmeter, you can remove the horn fuse and check to see if there is continuity between the horn (non hot side) of the fuse ... 2008 Ford Escape

Today as I was driving, I realized my radar detector was not on so I tried pushing the plug in a little more, and when I did the radio stopped working also. I tried testing the fuse for the radio/lighter, but that doesn't seem to be the problem? I know the radio and lighter are on the same fuse, but I tried a good fuse and it still didn't work. Any ideas?


Open your hood, and see check the relay box. You may have shorted them out and may need to replace the relay. Look inside the cover to locate the correct relay. \015\012\015\012Let me know if you need further assistance.\015\012 ... 2002 Suzuki Esteem

Get the battery recharged and have the alternator tested . Voltage at battery with the car running should be 13.5-14 volts.If the battery light came on with engine running that indicates a bad alternator .NEVER remove battery cables with engine runn ... 1996 Ford Taurus

About a month ago my car died because I left the lights on. When I jumped it, it somehow made the radio stop working. I have located 2 fuse boxes. 1 under the hood, and 1 on the left side of my steering wheel. All of the fuses are labled on the covers but there is NO lable for the radio. A few others have tried to locate the radio fuse and we can't seem to find it. We called the dealer where I got the car and they said the radio fuse should have been in the trunk on the left side behind the carp
