First check to see if the main fuses if the fuse is blown. You can use a test lamp or multimeter set on resistance(OHMS) and it should read zero if good. Then pull out after market stereo and trace wires to see if there is an in line fuse,(Cylindrical Glass in a plastic cover), in the power line from the main fuse.
If good or no fuse in line, then see if there is an plug in fuse on the back of the radio.
If this is all good and you are recieving 12 Volts DC at the radios neutral and active, bin it and purchase another.
If lights are on the face of the radio, check speakers for connections and also low reading of ohms on the meter.
If you don't have a meter an electrical trady at any bussiness will tell you in about 3 mins if its stuffed or what is required to get it going.
I hope this helped, Corsa 1.

Thanks for the help ...so your saying that if I for example buy a ...pioneer stereo that is the right size then it should have no problem hooking into the car with out any fancy wire work ....I'm for iliac with normal installation ( done it before ) but I'm just a little intimidated by some of the sites saying that you can't install a after market radio into a saab because it won't exempt it and all that stuff . But any right size stereo should work your telling me ?

2006 F-150 radio won't turn off, power locks/ windows not working


check the circuit breakers & relays associated with widows/locks, check your owners manual for description of where these can be found, is the radio an aftermarket unit or is it standard, if it's aftermarket then it has been wired in with a continuous live & will need to be re wired, if it is standard then you could have a short in the wiring that has "Jumped" a continuous live to the unit, Hope this helps

Be sure to check fuses. You may have a blown fuse. If have the owner's manual, check for fuse block diagram and check for one listed as radio. If fuse is at fault, may have loose wire that caused it to blow.
