Question about 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Fuses are fine but no power to radio.The radio was going in and out and now for the past several months nothing at all.I took the radio out and found there was no power going to it.Checked fuses and they were good.When it was going in and out there seemed to sound like there was a little crackling from the dash like maybe something was shorting out maybe.Any advice?
Wait 'till dark and move those wires around while you are looking under there..."crackling" will create sparks which you will be able to see (and correct). Only other sure cure for this is to remove the fuse (if nothing else uses it) and run a direct hot lead to the radio using an open fuse port that is "hot" when the key is on. Cut the original power wire for the harness connector on the radio and tie into it, capping off the portion that runs back to the fuses Use an "in line" fuse in the new hot wire.. You can run a new ground as well to the dash support frame. If you need to run a new clock wire, use a fuse port that is on all the time, and run the same way as for hot lead.. DO NOT tap into engine control or airbag circuts!!!
