Hi.
Go to your local dealer and ask them to unlock the radio, changing the battery or removing any post from the battery will render theft deterrent radios to the locked state.
And your dealer has the key needed to unlock the radio.
HTH.

Radio not working


there are 3 power sources to radio. if stock, if not stock more.
Radio power.
memory power
and dial lamp power. (dimmer)

why not use a voltmeter to find out why its dead.
even better the FSM shows the wires, the colors and the path.
making guessing go to zero.

when working electrics pull battery minus lug, like the FSM directs you.
and keys in pocket. causing load dumps can cause very expensive
electronics to fail. even the EFI, PCM.

Out of curiousity did you check your fuse? In installing one a while ago I created a short and had no power a simple fuse replacement and all was good?

The other one is if you made cuts in the wire did you make sure the right connections were made?

May seem simple and if you already checked apologies for mentioning it however, I have found sometimes that we pass the simple solutions trying to make it more complicated than what it is.

do you have remote start on that truck? if you do, it has a hood safety switch that will keep it from starting if hood is open. That hood switch is quite easily identifyable. Look for it on the drivers side, either close to the firewall or right at the front of the fuse box.itsa worth taking a look

My car will not start my lights, radio work its not the battery. I recently replaced the starter, the altenator, battery, fuel pump catalyic converter. when i turn the key there is no noise it won't...


Sounds to me like the starter or starter relay, OR did you check all the fuses? When the starter doesn't click or turn over the engine it is likely a problem with it or the power supply to it. Start with the easy thing. check the fuses, then the relay.
The P0300 is usually caused by something other than the spark plugs or coils. A fuel/oxygen sensor can cause this code. I would say that doesn't have anything to do with not starting.
Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

The security system does not disable the starter, it only disables fuel to the engine. In the fuse block under the hood, locate the STARTER relay. Place your hand on this relay and see if it clicks while someone else turns the key to start...if the relay is ok then the starter itself is faulty. Good luck, i hope this helps.

Hello,i am changing my radio from stock to store brought.i have connected all wires correctly.there are two extra wires. one is red with yellow stripe. when i connect that wire to a power source,the dash...


I guess you just cut all the wires and didnt' purchase a wiring harness. You should spend the extra money. Makes it way easier plus you can always put the stock one back in with no problem if you ever decide to sell the car. More than likely the red/yellow was to control the brightness on your stock unit at night. The same way you can control the brightness of your dash lights. As far as the other wire not sure what it was for. Does the new unit work? If so then just trim the exposed copper part of the wires and cover with electrical tape. Those wires wouldn't change anything on your new unit or actually connect to it.
