Ingterior lights, clock and radio memory won't work on 1998 isuzu rodeo when key is not on


The radio receives power from the 15A AUDIO FUSE in the dash fuse box. The radio memory receives power from the 10A DOME LIGHT FUSE in the same box. The problems you note suggest the radio may have been misconnected at some point or there has been a fuse failure or there is a broken connection.

Just blew a fuse (15amp) on the aux circuit (clock, saloon light and radio). Went to replace fuse and it blew again. I went through a fairly deep puddle of water at some speed and this has been the result.


If you can, pull the bulbs for the saloon lights and disconnect the radio. Put in another fuse. If it doesn't blow, the problem is in the lights or the radio. If it does blow, the problem is in the clock or some other item on the aux circuit. you may have to wait until the water dries out of the wire bundle or connector where it is shorting things out.

Replaced fuses in my 06 Matrix. Radio and clock are still dead.


The 15 amp dome fuse is in the fuse box under the hood and the 15 amp CIG fuse is in the lower finish panel up under the dash on the drivers side. These are needed for the radio. The above fuses and also the 15 amp Gauge fuse in the box with the dome fuse under the hood are needed for the clock.
So...since both are dead it is likely to be 1 of the first 2 fuses mentioned.

The radio/clock dash light on my 2004 matrix are out! ...solution?


The 15 amp dome fuse is in the fuse box under the hood and the 15 amp CIG fuse is in the lower finish panel up under the dash on the drivers side. These are needed for the radio. The above fuses plus the 15 amp Gauge fuse in the box with the dome fuse under the hood are needed for the clock.

I also have clock removal instructions at my website www.autoclockrepair.com

Radio no power which is maching fuse


There are two fuses that power the radio. The 15 amp CIG fuse and the 15 amp DOME fuse.
AT the radio connector, you should have 12 volt power in the GREY wire (this is the main power from the CIG fuse) and 12 volt power in the BLUE with YELLOW tracer (this is memory power from the DOME fuse). If you have power in botrh of these circuits, suspect the radio being bad.

1997 Crown Vic blows radio fuses


The quickest way to find a short circuit is by putting a bulb in place of the fuse. Anytime the time the bulb lights there is a load. And if the load is a shorted wire the brightness of the bulb will give you a hint. So while you're at it, finding a 'short' is a quicky...keep your eyes on the bulb. gotcha!
