Car wouldn't start yesterday...had to be jumped. Radio was working...and now it's not. No power at all. It's not in Safe mode and the radio card number can't be entered since the radio will not turn on. Any ideas? Fuses look ok under hood.

    The battery was jumped, then I had it replaced with a new one. Car runs fine. The radio just won't come on now.

    you may have blown a fuse... check the fuse in the interior fuse panel under the dash. if your car has a cigarette lighter check to see if it works as it 's usually on the same fuse

Did you find a solution to this problem? I have the same issue, fuses are fine, dealer says the radio is fried but they didn't even try to connect it to another car. It's hard for me to believe the radio is dead when both fuese are fine.

You need to charge your battery up more. Either get a battery charger or leave the jumper cables hooked up for a longer period of time.
Your battery was probably completely dead. You might even need a new battery...they really don't like to be completely drained.

The security feature had locked the radio It's an antitheft system that is triggered if the power supply is interrupted. You will have to refer to your owners manual for instructions on how to get the unlock code, or contact a dealership. The dealership can get the stereo working again in no time, but it will be costly.
