Deville 2001 Reverse chime and stereo stppoed working

Got in my 2001 Cadillac Deville yesterday morning and for the first time the stereo would not power up. (the clock does work). When I backed into my parking spot at work, the reverse chime did not go on. Never happened before. Both the stereo and chimes were working the day before. Nothing unusual happened to the car overnight. Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks, Dan

    have not checked the fuse (did not think it was a fuse problem because the disk exchanger working -- altho not playing.)

    Exact problem. Disc exchange works. Clock works. (Cadillac tech says if clock works audio sysem is getting power) Audio system lights up for about 10 seconds upon igintion engagement and then the lights go off. It will no play. It just stopped one morning with no prior problems.

Codes were probably erased prior to test drive and sale. Have the codes read at an autozone for free or a local shop and go from there. Hope you got a warranty. Good luck

The radio stopped working on my 02 Deville, however the time flashes. Also the chime that lets you know the keys are in the ignition and the back up to close to something chime is barely working. I hear a...

The key reminder and back up sensors on these cars are by both a computer behind the rear seat back and the radio itself, these two things communicate with eachirher through what is called a dash integration module. Concurrency your stereo isn't working, the popping sounds and that your battery is being drained, the first most likely cause is that the radio itself or the wiring going to it has a short or is otherwise damaged. The electrical systems in your car is extremely complex, I would strongly suggest taking it to a dealer or a shop that is experienced with your model and/or has access to factory repair manuals.

It may be trying to get your attention for an open door, trunk lid or other item requiring attention. Check your owner's manual for items that can cause it to chime.
