It is not the fuses, if the fuses where blown the radio would not work, this is caused by the rotaqting ribbon contact under the steering wheel having an open circuit, this contact is what allows the wheel to turn but still have a connection to the steering column wiring and the radio..

Radio is on no sound same thing horn works with theft button but no at steering wheel


Hi, think you need a visit to a decent auto electrician. These faults might be very specific to your car. If the horn does not work through the horn button but does so at the horn you will have circumvented the fuse in the circuit. Is the fuse blown. Are the contacts damaged.
In regard to the radio, some have two fuses to the rear of them, one for the switch/light/memory section and one for the sutput section. It might be that the output section fuse has blown.
There might, alternatively, be some damage to the wiring near the steering wheel that has affected radio and horn.
I guess I am trying to communicate that diagnosis is difficult so a good auto electrician can save you a lot of time if costing somee money
Good Luck

I replaced factory deck and now steering wheel volume and seek button do not work. Is there something I can do


The buttons in your steering wheel are designed to work with the factory radios only. If you replaced the radio with anything other than a factory radio your chances of getting the steering wheel buttons are pretty slim.

1998 ford explorer radio does'nt work switch on sterrein wheel broke.how to fix it ?no power to the radio


You can't turn it on by the switch on the radio ? Nothing showing on the radio display ? If not check these fuses
Blown central junction box (CJB) Fuse 1 (7.5A), Fuse 20 (7.5A), Fuse 28 (7.5A), and Fuse 29 (25A) . The switch on the steering wheel should not stop the radio from being turned on at the radio !

Why do my seek button, power button and the bluetooth not work


Are these on the radio itself or on the steering wheel? If the radio, you may need to pull the radio fuse (Warning! This will delete any and all saved Bluetooth devices, radio station presets, clock, eq settings, bal and fade settings, etc) and then try it again. If the issue is with the steering wheel controls, and you have an aftermarket radio most often you will need an adapter to connect the new radio to the steering wheel as well as a radio that has that capability.

2002 radio msg reads "SCAN sound off"


You can try disconnecting the negative battery cable for 5 minutes and see if that will return the radio to the factory default setting. If you have steeing wheel controls, there is a possibility the seek button on the steering wheel is bad or the wire from the steering wheel to the radio. If that checks ok, then the radio has an internal defect and will have to be replaced.
Good luck.
