Question about 1990 Buick Reatta

1 Answer

1990 Buick Reatta Radio turns on but no sound no seeking no scanning no antenna?

Pulled stereo from Burgundy 1990 Reatta we use for spare parts. In the original stereo of the Red Reatta a tape was stuck but the radio worked fine antenna too until of course the tape got stuck... so I pull this stock stereo from the spare Burgundy 1990 Reatta and the clock always says 1:00. When pressing the power button in 'turns on' and says 98.1 but no sound, no scan, no seek etc. also the antenna will not go up. Also, I checked the fuses all good. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

There are two fuses
one feeds power to the radio at all times to keep the clock correct.
The other fuse is for power when you turn it on, that one might be blown.

SOURCE: 92 buick century power antenna motor wont shut off

Well, even if you pull the connector (under carpet) apart with gray white and green wires(ones seen going to motor from door gap when opened) it still doesn't stop. next access point is from behind mud gaurd in wheel well. If I can't disconnect it from there I will just cut the bloody wires.

The antenna wont go up because you have a tape in it, you will need to remove the radio,the belt inside may have broke, you will need to take to radio repair shop or replace it.

The lights for the radio,climate,gauges,ect do not come on


Are you referring to the message center??? The message center is the CRT display in the center of the dash that controls your radio, A/C, heat, displays gauges, etc.

If that's not lighting up, you need to replace the unit. I have a spare one if you're interested. It's not perfect. The very bottom of the screen is starting to become very slightly distorted, but I will sell it very cheap. Just bought the entire interior from an '88 Reatta from a junkyard. Message center came with it. Let me know.
