SOURCE: I have a 2001 BMW Z3. The battery went dead last

most new BMW's the fuse block is located behind the glove box. There should be a pair of twist plastic fastners at the back of the glove box, twist and remove the plate and you should find the fuse box and fuse locater list.

I had the same problem. disconnect the battery cables. then reconnect them. this will reset the cd player and it should relaese all your cd player problems.

SOURCE: Radio dead (not a code issue), Fuse #9 (lighter) keeps blowing

Yes, replacing the #9 fuse in the fuse box under the glove box seemed to do the trick (Front Accessory Socket). Thank you!!

I have a 2010 kia soul with a radio that won't turn on. No display, no sound and wont turn on at all. Totally dead radio. Is there anything I can check on my end before having to go to the dealer?


You can check the fuse for the radio. Also some radios have a security feature and only a code can make it work again. It is usually found on the glove compartment. Check owners manual of the car. A 5 digit code.

Geo prizm radio 1993. All of a sudden radio won't go on at all. switch seems a little loose but no clock time showing power either. Says it shares a fuse with cig lighter and that works. Help!


seems so. the cig answers are wrong. its ACC fuse runs radio on PRIZM.93
we dont even know what radio is there.
on old cars most have had the radio replace 3 times.
stock (not likely this old ,no?) cassettes?????
then CD added
then CD/DVD/MP3 added
then media center the does everything even runs
MP3(etc) on a USB stick (best of best forever)
see? or ipod, port. etc.etc... even SAT radios.

that is the point here, we cant SEE< we are blind
why ask the blind for help.?
zero photos posted. as are 99.9% on this forum.
and fails mostly just for that one fact here.

why not just buy a better radio head end.?
and the adaptor kit that allows you to just
plug it in and not mangle all those stock wires.
the kit is sold in all autostores in the USA
for like $15 bucks. dirt cheap.
then install the new head end.
this is what all folks do.
or get it done by those that do...

The radio and clock on 2008 Suzuki swift will go off and come back on a week or so later and the time would be right


fuse bad, to it or just loose.
if not bad wire from fuse to radio
or radio bad.
or ground to radio bad, unlikely do to not forgetting time and stations
the radio has 2 power wires, main power, and memory
main power is the failure here.

if it goes dead, check for 12vdc key on, to radio power pin first.

I have a 1999 wrangler T J wiper was working wiped twice than radio and wipers stopped working. Radio came back on wipers did not. Help


wiper fuse. The wiper motor was, for a very short time, drawing the majority of the power from your system causing the radio to lose its required voltage. The fuse blew to the wipers, ending the power drain, therefore your radio got back the voltage it needed to work. Its kinda like everything goes dead when you start your car, only to come back when you let off the key.

Bmw bavaria rds


Margaret, this is free public forum , demands don't play here (free)
and you double posted. why do that.? if you wish to elaborate
try posting below 1st post, as an add.
and for better help? why not post to a BMW forum. (faster)
and no car year, posted or car options listed.

Radio year, model and Car Cell phone options.

no matter.......
the first check on all electronics, is the fuse
most radios have 3 power sources, (to make all features work)
and fuses are on all 3.
have you tried all sources, AM/FM CD, MP3 USB (if opted) .
are all modes dead?
the next check is to try all buttons on the radio. ?
is there a mute button? if car has 4 speaker try the fader lever.
front to rear. left to right , still dead.?
cycle modes. radio, cassette, CD 6 pack , what ever, but do cycle them all as older cars the mode switch can stick.

The RDS is radio station text messages. for song titles.
including time, station identification and programme information.
if this part really works, the RDS part this means the radio is working, but the power amp is dead or muted.
try balance and fader.
many radios (1000s) have fuses in the radio for the speaker amp
that can blow. (shorted speaker wires a prime reason)
or some have in line fuse. and others are in the cars fuse box
which varies by maker or model year.

ok , im looking at the stock radio on level C stock 1991 radio
and even back when (stock to me) the is RADIO muting
so if your car has Cell phone muting bingo that.
and a fuse at rear of radio, (unstated purpose)
guessing,id say there is lamp that glows, CELL mute?


conclusion, no car year stated, or year radio of not origional.

Radio Dead


When it comes to independent auto shops, its tough to get them to take responsibility if they did something wrong, thats why most people with a car as nice as your wouldnt trust it to just any shop. Theres nothing in a timing belt job that would cause the radio to stop working, unless some connector is loose or a bad ground somewhere. There are 3 fuses you may want to check... Radio No. 1 20A, Radio No 2 7.5A, Dome 7.5A. These all send power to the radio's circuit. If all 3 are good, It would have to be an internal problem in the radio.
