Pull the radio and check the wiring for power ground etc, if all is ok then you will need to send the radio out to an authorized repair shop.

You can't turn it on by the switch on the radio ? Nothing showing on the radio display ? If not check these fuses
Blown central junction box (CJB) Fuse 1 (7.5A), Fuse 20 (7.5A), Fuse 28 (7.5A), and Fuse 29 (25A) . The switch on the steering wheel should not stop the radio from being turned on at the radio !

A spark came from interior fuse/relay panel. After that nothing seem to be working on the interior fuse/relay panel. I check all of the fuses, and all seem to be in working order.. What else could be

First you need to remove whatever you added to the fuse panel, then check the mega fuse in the underhood fuse panel, you may have blown that. Below is a picture of its location. If it is OK, you will need to have a professional diagnose your electrical system.

My cars radio does not turn on.

It's definitely a fuse. I would change out the radio fuse and the fuse that controls your door locks. Fuses don't have to be split to stop working.

2005 Malibu MAXX car stereo dead, rear radio too.

Please check your owners manual for the location of the 10 amp fuse for the radio. On some models you have to reset the security feature on the radio/CD player for it to work.

The info below has been stated to work on a no go radio. I have not confirmed this procedure.

Remove the lower fuse box cover, with the power off, removed the 10 Amp fuse for the "Radio." the fuse may be good. Fuses are diagrammed in the owner's manual. With the fuse removed, start the car, turn the car off, replace the fuse and turn the key to "ACC" to see if the radio was "Reset."

Would the alarm cause the radio to malfunction? If your Anti Theft lock was activated check your owners manual under radio and check for a 4 number password. Sometimes it is taped to the upper part of the glove box. If you do not have the CODE you will need to take the vehicle to a dealership or a repair center. They use your vehicles vin number get the code.

Hyundai Elantra 2003 electrical problem

I found that while checking my fuses that i had pulled out what looked like a black plastic "fuse puller" that was actually some kind of jumper. I had accidentally re-installed it reversed. I reversed it back to its original position and all lights, clock, radio, etc.. work normal now.
