If your Trailblazer does not have rear seat audio, check the 15A RADIO FUSE in the I/P fuse panel. If your Trailblazer has rear seat audio, check 15A RADIO FUSE 41 and 10A HVAC B FUSE 36 in the rear fuse block. You may have to use a different adapter to get the radio to work.

1996 ford mustang keeps blowing radio fuse after running for a bit

I would need to know if its the factory radio or an aftermarket system . If it factory, did you have it apart for any reason? Did you make sure the plug-in is all the way on?

If its aftermarket, does it have an amp? Did you verify all ground connections? Are all the speakers hooked up the same, or do you have some speaker wired backwards?

Its tuff to answer this type of question without knowing all these things, or having it right in front of you. Some places get LOTS of money tracking odd electrical problems, and I have found these above questions can usually get you close to finding the problem.

Radio reads amp error

what radio? factory, aftermarket, etc? if its factory just go to a wrecker for another one, yours is non-repairable. Aftermarket is a problem for a stereo guy.

Instrument panel went dead after i installed aftermarket stereo

first check the factory wiring for your vehicle. sometimes the red wire is not the battery power. In my car the orange wire was battery power and red was the accessory power. also make sure the ground wire is attached securely. Then check your fuse box. I had a 10 amp fuse blow and because the aftermarket stereo drew more power than the factory one I needed to put in a larger fuse.

We have put a new tac and a new radio in car and now i keep blowing fuse for dash light. what can be the problem.

This problem is so common when replacing factory radio with aftermarket, you will need to remove the radio and unplug it, next use a test light and probe the wires you are using for the radio, whats happening is that the factory radio had lights inside it that were controled by the headlight switch so they light up when the lights are used and you could dim or brighten them, some cars may use two or three wires to light up a radio you will need to locte them and not use them, most people use them as a ground and then when lights are turned on they turn into power wires so test each wire and turn light on and see if they get power the one that do power up with the lights cut and tape them up also any wire you are not using make sure they are taped up and not touching, good day, hope this is helpful.

Fuse for instruments, 10 amp keeps blowing speedometer and rpm gauge don't work changed fuse it just went right away

It sounds like there is an aftermarket(not stock) radio wired in. If the wrong wires were used for the face illumination, it will do this.

Radio fuse keeps blowing out

well you can put a bigger fuse in but your risking really messing something up. if it's blowing the same fuse over and over, then you need to move the positive wire. look up the wiring diagram for the car and find the positive wire going to your fuse panal, connect it to that with a 20amp inline fuse and you should be set.

I bought the car without a radio. i am putting a aftermarket stereo in its place. I need to know what my factory wires are.

your best bet is to buy a adapter harness (not expense) it plugs right into factory radio plug and then to aftermarket radio,all you need is the make and model of radio going in and year make and model of car and go to a car radio store.ALOT EASY THIS WAY, ALSO THE PLUG COMES W/DIAGRAM &LABELED WIRES.good luck hope this helps.
