Radio/cd player not working in 1999 pontiac montana
I recently purchased a used 1999 pontiac montana and the radio did not work when i bought it. My dad has checked the fuses and they are all fine. It does not do anything nothing is on the screen at all. I would really like to keep the factory radio/cd player in it so that the controls on the steering wheel and in the back of van work. Any suggestions would be helpfull. thank you.

Being a Brit I don,t know the car but would suggest that your radio/CD might be security coded which works as a security device if someone steals it. There should be instructions somewhere in your glovebox manual telling you how to re-code it. The code would be supplied with the radio and noted somewhere. If not the Pontiac dealer may be able to help you if you quote him your VIN. Some "mechanics" foolishly write the code on the radio unit label - it's stupid but you could try there first!
if it was my guess I would check the connection make sure all are connecting. I also worked on a older van that had day time running lights and its activated by a sensor that reads the light when it stops working the interior lights wouldnt come on same as radio so hope this might help.
There is a fuse on the back to the stereo but that would make everything with the radio not work. Unless if your cd player is separate from the radio you could pull it out and check to see if it has a fuse.
The bad news is sometimes the laser in the cd player goes out and they no longer work.
Could be a number of things. Some of the older GM CD players don't work too well in very cold weather. Also, some of the older CD players won't play burned CD's. If it's not cold weather related, and you're using a regular production store-bought CD, then it is most likely an internal radio problem. Cheapest solution is to buy a cheap aftermarket player.
