2005 Pontiac Montana radio Fuses

I had an altenator replaced and a new battery. Once I replaced them my radio doesn't work or the DVD/ I only have one fuse in the incar panel for radio amplifier. Evey time I replace a fuse it blows. I have lost all the chimes and since then I have had problems with keyless remote locking the doors.
Does the radio have a fusible link that may of been blown or is the radio fried.
I have checked all the fuses incar and in the engine compartment and it seemd that all are ok, except for the one that says radio amplifier

Radio suddenly doesn't work and instrument panel doesn't work

Ok, i had the same problem a few months back, in my case my car was only a year and a half old and had just washed the engine at the local carwash. Fuses were ok and battery was in new condition, we found out that water had reached the Alternator and this messed up the whole electric system, Some people say you can blow dry your alternator (If this is the case) or take it to an electrical technician

Pontiac grand am 2004 3.4 6cylinder installed brand new battery altenator & starter all good car started took it for test drive everything shut off car wont start. lights radio still come on

Sounds like the security system activated or the ignition is bad. If you have an alarm installed remove it. If you don't then replace the ignition switch after checking all fuses in the fuse panel. There is one that can blow and will give you this symptom.

Car will not start, nothing works. no wipers, radio, ect ( just replaced battery & altenator

1-The contact of battery cable needs to be cleaned off from dust and oxidation. These are the main things preventing a good conductivity of electric current flowing through the circuit hence nothing could work even with a new battery.
2-Check out the main fuse.l

The battery went dead in my 2005 nissan altima, replaced battery now my clock or radio wont work.


The clock & radio usually share the same accessory fuse.

1. Check the 10A Radio/accessory fuse in the cabin fusebox and replace if blown.
2. Check the fusable links from the + (red) battery cable to ensure they're ok and secure.
3. Check accessory relay, in engine fusebox.

Please advise outcome...

The car just stopped one day. The lights on the inside will not come on, no radio, and no head lights. I put in a new battery and had the altenator tested. That came back good. The fuses are all good.

Check the mechanical condition of the battery cables; I have seen cables more than once that appeared OK but battery acid had crept under the plastic insulation and dissolved the copper inside.
I confess that this normally shows up first with hard starting or noticeable dimming of the headlights when other accessories are turned on but you have done the other things I would have checked already so it's time to check the cables coming off the battery at both ends.
