Generally aftermarket units have problems due to sloppy installation or being connected to inappropriate power sources. Why would a unit go bad??? Like everything else you buy today, unless you did something to it that you should not have, even expensive stuff is made like garbage, with little or no quality control I'm more surprised when something works than when it dosen't!!! (check to see if there is an external & an internal fuse.)

1998 chevrolet malibu radio error


A cd player uses an optical laser to read the information on the media. The radio itself is mostly a separate part of the audio system, though it is contained in the head unit. The most common cause of an "error" signal in a head unit is due to a dirty optical lens. I would try a soft brushed disc cleaner before speaking to the dealer. You can get these at most stores. If that doesn't work the most likely culprit would be a mechanical failure of the carriage that runs the laser or the laser itself.

I have a 2003 Honda Civic EX coupe. Installed aftermarket radio cd player and the cd works but the radio does not. The issue is not with the new unit as the previous player's radio would not work either....


If you're getting power to the CD player then there's power
to the radio. The antenna involves the grid on the rear window,
an antenna coil and cable to the radio. You can check the
grid for a break and if it's small you're auto parts store will
have a repair kit. My 05 Accord rear window defogger did
not work and it took Honda 2 attempts to repair it. Other
than checking the grid I would bring it to the dealer.

Factory stereo not working. Fuses are good; is ther a fuse in the stereo that may have blown and how do I get to it?


If your fuse is good then you may have a bad circuit board inside the radio itself. I see a few of these each year...sometimes the FM will work but not the AM, or the opposite, and often the display will keep working but you won't get any sound out of it at all. If you are SURE that you have power to it then I would contact a radio repair facility or try a different but simialar radio in its place. They usually aren't too expensive to have repaired if the board is indeed bad. Most of these didn't have a CD player so if your factory radio is bad you could also consider upgrading the radio with an aftermarket unit.

Mini Fuse in passenger compartment box, F72, rating 15 amps, keeps blowing. The Fuse goes to the Radio head unit, CD player, Jaguar diagnostic connector/OBD2 connector. The Jaguar is a 2002 X type......


i dought the connector is the problem. check cd player same way as you did radio.pull that fuse and check every funcion you can in the car to see if some unlisted on fuse box item is on that circuit. its possible the cig lighter or power outlets are routed through that fuse or aftermarket equipment is improperly installed on that circuitm lighter/power sockets are always going bad and cheap cell phone etc socket adapters are always shorting out and popping fuses.
if you cannot find a bad coponent then look at wireing for insulation rub throughs to the body. look anywere a wire/harness is near an edge that can cause a rub through. bolt/screw heads/seat tracs/any moving exsposed metal object near wires are suspect to.

2000 escort - tuner does not work but CD and TAPE are fine


most likely is the radio itself- typical ford radio... best bet is look in a junkyard for a new radio- there are no fusible links- there usually is just one 10amp fuse in the inside fusebox. but if the cd& tape players work it is in the stereo itself. hope this helps and good luck
