Most cars have two fuse blocks, one under the dashboard and one in the engine compartment. Unfortunately, each car is different as to where the blocks are located and how the components are arranged on the block. The simple way of finding your answer lies in the rear of your owner's manual. Back in the specifications section is a listing of the fuses and on which block they are found.

Alternatively, you can find the block under the dash (you have a 90% chance of finding the stereo fuse here), remove the cover and on the inside of the cover is a layout of the various fuses.

Your fuse should be identified and when it is pulled, it should indicate a blown condition.

Now, if your stereo was installed after purchase, there is a good chance that the installer ran a line to a power feed and tapped into that feed. In that case, there will be an inline filter holder and it won't, of course, be found in your manual. You will have to find the line running from the rear of the stereo to a power line and look for the in-line fuse.

1997 Buick park avenue, stereo stopped working but still says the time how an i make it work

The clock is on a seperate electrical circult from the power for the stereo itself. So the clock can work and the stereo could be bad. Get out your owners manual and check the fuses for the stereo first. If the fuses are good check for power to the fuses with a test light.

No power to stereo

This is supplied through a main fuse AM1, then a 15A fuse for the radio and cig lighter. So if the cig lighter works, it is not those faulty but likely the fuse in the radio. See here p10 for the location of these fuses.

Car turns over but won't start fuel injector fuse and ignition fuses are good but no power is getting to them. also the stereo and wipers only work when ignition is on accessory. when its on r

Sounds like it could be a bad ignition switch-the electrical part, not the lock cylinder. When key is in the on position (run), those fuses should be powered. Are all the maxi-fuses good? They distribute power throughout the car's electrical circuits-like the fuse panel, for instance, so check the maxi-fuses. If good, probably the ignition switch is bad.

Curtosity light wont work

more than likely you have blown a fuse. check fuses first and check back. ususally the courtesy light and radio are on same fuse. Next time remove ground from battery before installing any electrical just saves a lot of aggro and money

What fuse would i have to change so that the radio can work

probably a fuse being blown from a short in the electrics.
if the stereo has been taken out and a new on connected check these connections. There should be a diagrahm on the inside cover of the fuse panel or they should have identification next to each fuse as to what is what.

1996 Yukon Electrical issue My Yukon dash lights (engine,air bag etc) flicker on and off whenever they feel like it..Aftermarket stereo goes off at the same time

Sounds like a loose fuse, or bad ground in the wiring. Its pretty common that one fuse controls most of the internal electric components.

My hazard and a/c buttons will not light up or work since my stereo was removed?? HELP

It sounds like a fuse may have blown after the stereo was removed. Did whomever removed it make sure all the live wires were covered w/electrical tape? If not, one could have touched something and blown the fuses to your ac and hazard.
Check the fuse box thats by your feet on the driverside, pull the fuses that are for the ac and hazards and see if they're blown. If so, make sure all electrical lines are covered w/electrical tape BEFORE you change the fuses.

Wiring cut when my stereo was stolen now nothing works.

Could have crossed wires and blown the fuses. try isolating and electrical taping the wires and then go through your fuses and replace the blown ones.
