1997 Saturn After Market Radio

I have a 1997 Saturn with an aftermarket Pioneer Deck. I recently had the battery and alternator replaced and now there is no power to the radio. I know the OEM radio's needed a code however the deck does not want to work.

    I check the radio fuse on the fuse panel and it is ok and I pulled the deck and there is no inline fuse.

How do you preset radio stations on a 02 Saturn SL? I have tried tuning to a selected station and holding a preset button for 3-5 seconds and it doesn't work.


If it is aftermarket, some one might not have hook the memory wire up. But most will preset, it will just be lost when you turn off the car. If it is hooked up right, after market or factory, it is an internal failure. Replace the radio.

My alternator for my 2004 Mazda Tribute Wont Charge and My Dash Wont work at all.


it is possible that the after market radio is the problem
unless it is installed correctly it may be draining power from the dash wiring or using that schematics as an earth incorrectly
fitting after market radios in modern cars is not a diy effort as the original radios are now attached to the ECM of the car and fitting the radio incorrectly will cause problems

1997 saturn replaced battery(new) dead in 2 days...car will start with a boost...but will run only for awhile until completely dead battery...alternator replaced(rebuilt)..no lights have been left on...


When the car is running check the voltage at the battery. You should see 14 volts. If you see around 12 volts or less the alternator is not charging.

2 Dashboard lights have come on 1 check engine


well if the battery light came on that means your alternator is not charging the battery,,you need a new alternator,,,and maybe a new battery if it killed it,,,,that set the check engine light on,,,,,for it not charging,,,,,do not buy a aftermarket alt,,,,only saturn/gm,,as they do not meet gm/saturn specs and you will install it and still have a battery light on,,,,,,you need a factory alternator,,,yes it costs more,but unless you feel like putting a few in and out to find this out,,,,,

I want to change my original cd player for a pioneer


This is because you need to purchase the aftermarket-oem harness plug.This harness plugs into your original equipment radio harness and allows you to plug any aftermarket radio into the stock deck wires.After you plug the harness in you can then connect the radio wires together.Your local autoparts store or circuit city or best buy or audio express will have these radio conversion plugs.I hope I could help

Volume on honda civic radio not working


atxhonda is right. Your going to have to replace the stereo and an aft mkt stereo will be the cheapest by far, however you should know that 96-00 Civics keyless entry control unit is inside the factory unit and by replacing it with an aftermarket deck you will lose you factory keyless entry system. If you don't have or use honda factory keyless entry or maybe you have an aft mkt keyless entry installed than I would go with the aft mkt deck.

Unhooked radio and now car won't start


Saturn has the anti theft system built into the stock radio. I would suggest either re-installing the radio or get the aftermarket system to activiate your PATS system. (Passive Anti Theft)

Hi how are you I have a 1996 Saturn SL the radio is asking for a lock code


Unfortunetly, you will need to go to your local GM dealer and have them get the code and unlock the radio, and of course they will charge for it. The anti-theft lock activated on the radio, either cause it was improperly removed, or the battery has been unplugged or drained for too long. And to get the code, you need the car with you to prove it's not some stolen radio you are trying to get up and running, and then they will need to call the GM support center with their dealer code so that GM will give them the code to unlock it. I know it sucks, but there is no other way unfortunetly. Some VW and Honda owners also have the same problem as you so don't worry you're not alone. Although, if you want to fix the problem once and for all, just take the radio out of there and replace it with an aftermarket unit like a Sony, Pioneer, Alpine or whatever. That way the radio will never ask you for a code like that again since it won't be the OEM radio, and you will also usually have a better sound with an aftermarket unit.

2000 Audi A4 Factory Radio vs. aftermarket radio


most aftermarket units have 2 power wires 1 for the battery and 1 for a keyed hot source,what you need to do is hook both of them up to a constant (battery) power source,be sure and include an in-line fuse.
