The car dash probably lights the radio dial so that it will dim down with the dash light dimmer. The radio light may still be switched on and off by the radio switch but its a separate circuit. Check the fuse for the circuit that powers the radio itself. It should have its own fuse. Its likely that the radio has failed and will have to be removed and checked on a bench but check the fuse and check the power and antenna connectors in the back of the radio as these sometimes come loose from vibration. Always replace a fuse with one of the exact same amperage, voltage rating, and time delay if any as the original. If a fuse is blown the cause may be internal to the radio or it may be a problem with the car wiring to the radio. If blown check the wiring leading to the radio for worn insulation near sharp edges in the dash.

Radio lights but doesnt turn on and even cd player doesnt work


Check your fuse block to make sure the fuse is good - if so, then your radio may have burnt. Also look on the back of the radio to see if there's a fuse mounted in the case. If it's an aftermarket radio, it could have the light wired to the dash light switch which would make the front light up without radio function.
Hope this helps!

Chrysler Voyager 2003 battery went dead now radio won't even turn on, clock doesn't work


i assume you put a new battery in,van runs but no radio or clock, check all your fuses first,and also make sure that radio doesnt have anti theft system, if it does then read your manualy on how to enter the code,if it needs a code then it wont work until code is entered,careful if you do the code entering wrong three times then radio shuts down for one hour, then you would need to have the key on or van running for one hour straight,

Stereo stopped working along with speedometer


It's probably not a fuse. It sounds like your vehicle speed sensor went bad in the transmission. The reason your radio stopped working was because your radio is probably equipped with speed sensitive volume and it requires a speed signal to work.

No sound on radio


The car also has amplifiers. Check all the fuses besides the radio. That might fix your issue.
