    Can't find the fuse to the radio and clock ... not shown on the fuse schematic in the engine compartment, neither is it shown in the owners manual.

  • cncarter3 Sep 07, 2008

    The radio and clock have not been working for a few months. Just this morning their was white smoke and the smell of plastic coming from the radio/CD/Tape Deck. I cannot find the fuse box either to pull out fuse.



    My theory is that the radio/clock made be trying to come back on (it did this intermittently before it completely went out), but is not working properly and shorting out something else. Any thoughts?

    the cd player goes off when the a/c is being turned on or when the signal lights are being used. i looked at the wiring diagram and traced it to the acc of the ignition switch, but i don't think thats the problem. is there a relay i need to change?

    When you say you checked the wiring do you mean you tested it for power to the radio?

Stereo dos not work


first confirm fuse for radio circuit is good, replace if its blown.
If fuse is good, and radio still not working, check power wires and plugs from back of radio to fuse block--check for broken wire, rubbing wire (worn insulation = short in circuit), loose connecting blocks, loose /broken wires in connection blocks. If that all checks out -- got to the nearest wrecker and get a 2nd hand radio OR by an aftermarket radio. OR pay an auto-radio shop to check your radio and maybe the wiring.

Installing stereo in chevy s10 pickup now my gauges aren't workign


Did you disconnect the stereo wires you'd hooked up and see if everything went back to normal? It's easy to connect some custom equipment to the wrong wire. Depending on the stereo you installed, there would probably be 3 wires that are battery positive at any time, and at least one ground wire. There's a wire that's "hot" all the time that provides power to keep the station memory and clock, etc., set. Then the wire that actually powers the radio when you turn it on. The other wire would be hot FROM the radio when oyu turn the radio on, and it's meant for cars that have an electric antenna so the antenna raises automatically when you turn the radio on. If you connect either one of those wires to the wrong wiring harness wire, you can have power to something at an inappropriate time. The best thing to do (without cutting the harness wires) is to use the proper power leads in the factory wiring harness. Otherwise, if you look at your truck fuse-box diagram, you should see that one fuse is marked like "constant battery". I think that will be the fuse towards the front of the truck in the very bottom row of fuses. The wire for your station memory/clock can go to that fuse. The fuse towards the BACK of the truck in that same row is "radio/ignition". THAT fuse only sends power when you turn the ignition switch on or to accessories. Use it for the radio power. If you don't have an electric antenna, don't bother with that wire. To wire straight to a fuse, you need to determine which leg of the fuse power comes in on, then strip about half an inch from the wire and wrap it around the leg of the fuse that goes in the OTHER side. That way your system is protected by the fuses. If/when all that is done, you may have blown a fuse or relay in the big box under the hood on yop of the left fender-well. Let me know if you need help still, but as this problem is 4+ months old, I imagine you fixed it already. bushman_dread@msn.com

I have a 1997 Nissan Sentra and I recently put in a radio. The wiring went great and everything was put like it was suppose to but that night as I was driving I realized that my dash lights would not turn...


Check fuse number 36 in the fuse block. It supplies power for bothe the interior lights and the running lights. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using FixYa.com!

After replacing battery in 2002 Toyota Sequoia, radio losses memory everytime vehicle is started. What is wrong?


The radio uses a constant power to retain memory(stations,settings,ect.) and switched power to run on. It sounds like there is a problem with the constant power connection. You can first check the fuse box for any blown fuses and replace any that are found. Also look around the battery for any wires with an inline fuse that could be broken. Try looking under the dash near the radio for any inline fuse holders that could have a blown fuse. You might need to pull the radio and start tracing the constant 12v power wire. First verify that it does have power and if it does then the radio may have been damaged from a voltage spike when the new battery was installed. If the wire does not have power then you will need to start tracing the wire back to the source of the short. It sounds to me like a blown fuse somewhere....

1994 c280 low miles great condition always garage kept. Went into garage no lights, no power, no crank, no dome light radio or anything else. Battery good. Key always locked all 4 doors, now only locks...


You probably have either a bad connection at the battery on the smaller wire that connects to the + terminal or you have a blown or a bad connection to a fuse strip. Fuse strip looks like this http://www.joetlc.com/strip-fuse-mercedes-benz-p-17216.html

The radio will not power on in a 1986 Mercedes 190e


Befor you do anything disconnect the battery while car is off. The first thing you should inspect is the radio fuse. Then check to make sure all wires are connected correctly to the radio. Also check to see if it is grounding out anywhere, any lose speaker wire that is exposed to contact with metal will result in either a blown fuse or distortion in the sound system. Correct any faulty connections or blown fuse'. Double check just to make sure. Then reconnect the battery and test out your radio.

Blown radio fuse and cant find the blown fuse. no fuse scematic


look for a red 10A in your cars fuse panel.
Also, the radio should be fused in the yellow and red wires. They may be enclosed in a black box the wire runs into on some makes. Check them too and replace as necessary.
