It seems that your wheel bearings are about done for from your description. A good way to check them is to jack one wheel up and grab the top and bottom and sides of your tire and work it back and forth to check for play. If your bearings are going out you definitely need to address this ASAP else you may lose a tire while going down the interstate and you dont want that right? As far as your radio is concerned, if you replaced the fuse or fuses and can verify your radio is indeed getting power (you may have to pull the radio out and check for power at the wire harness) then maybe its time for a new radio as factory radios do not seem to be very reliable for many years these days. And as far as the V belt goes, simply replace it. Good luck!!!

My radio knobs and display stopped working, but the stations can be changed with the steering wheel controls.

Hello Monica Briggs,

I've been into three different "wheel control" sound systems...

One for sure had a SEPARATE FUSE for the radio (FACE versus STEERING-WHEEL) controls...
(that was ... Find THE OPERATED FUSE & replace it).

Two was a SIMPLE RESEAT (unplug/re-plug) of the REMOVABLE face plate...

Three most interesting by far was a STUNNED radio...
Last operated from the steering wheel ... would respond to no inputs (any-source).

Thanks to Bill Gates (BLUE SCREEN of D**TH) training the WORLD on the POWER-RESTART ... We simply disconnected the CAR Battery for a minute... put it back together... set the time & stations.. and pretended we knew what we were doing...

Hope this is at least inspiring... Good luck.

If perchance your vehicle is a popular USA model... look
on the BBB Industries FREE Wiring Diagrams & Technical Service
Bulletins***... (registration required (but well worth it)).

Otherwise search your Model+WORKSHOP+REPAIR+MANUAL
to get your technical specs.

***Bulletins: is where I found a clogged A/C drain was causing water damage to a HIGH-END Toyota sound system.

Lost power steering, car died, changed battery, and barley made it home. The battery has power, but when you turn the key on the dome light and other lights, radio, windows, etc don't work.

Sounds like the vehicle is not charging you may need a new alternator get the car going with jump leads again and test the voltage at the battery terminals with a DC volt meter expect 13.5-14.5 if you get less than 13.5 your alternator is bad or wiring fault also check the alternator belt is tight.

1998 ford explorer radio does'nt work switch on sterrein wheel 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 !

Radio station wont change and seat heaters not working

Are you talking about the radio selector on the steering wheel? If so the only thing you can do without tearing apart the steering wheel (which isn't for the faint of heart) is cycle that button several times, to clean the internal contacts of the switch. As for the seats check all the fuse panel locations for a blown fuse. If the seat htr fuse is good, then you need to check power at the heat switch on the seat. If there is power and ground at the switch then assume the worst for the heater.
