Should be 2 circuits for power at radio, one when key on, the other when key off for memory. Did you test for power at radio connector, or are you assuming because it's not coming on?

Radio not working


sounds to me like the radio lost its pass word code.
(or a power amp fuse is blown)
check fuses. , this time. more carefully.
some radios go to now amp mode, will tune but are in pass word mode.
if you drain the battery , this happens everytime.
oldest story in the world this.....

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f96/obtaining-anti-theft-radio-code-1350588/

if all power pins on the radio have 12vdc and if radio has external amp
there are like 4 or 5 radio options on new jeeps.
so if it has an external amp,it too has power pins, if they have 12vdc
then the fuse is not blown. (the fsm shows the wiring and fuses, read the FSM)
if the radio is still dead, it can be the radio code issue.
if the fuses are good , its Jeep dealer time.

My car is a 2006 honda accord. a friend somehow mixed the terminals up and the radio went dead when we finally got it right. it hasnt come on sinse then


Terminals for what, the battery? Anyway, you likely blew a fuse-check the fuse panel under the dash-should be a radio fuse. Radios often have two power sources, both would be fused, sometimes a power wire has an inline fuse.
If you find the radio fuse and it is good, better use a test light and check that your fuse panel is getting power to it. The radio fuse would have power to it with the key in ON. In fact, with key on, every fuse in the fuse panels would show power on a test light. The little slots at the top ends of every fuse are open to the metal strip inside the fuse. Ground the test light lead to a metal bracket or screw, and touch the test light probe into the slot. With key on, every good fuse will light the test light on both ends of the fuse-fuse is good and has not blown-a bad fuse will only light up the test light on one end of the fuse-the metal strip inside has blown apart.
You can check all your fuses this way-don't have to pull them out to inspect. But also most important for you to know is, does your fuse panel have power being fed to it. If those terminals were battery terminals, you may have blown a bigger fuse that feeds the fuse panel, one of your maxi fuses under the hood in the Power Distribution Box.
Good luck. Post back with what you find.

Radio works when car is off turn on car and it quits


The auxiliary power (when the car is off) is separate from the power that powers the radio when the car is on. It sounds like you might have a blown fuse. Check the fuse panel and see if the fuse associated with the radio is blown

How do find the radio fuse when it is blown


Easy way. With a test light connected to ground ( a test light is a tool that looks like a ice pick with a clear handle with a bulb inside, and a wire coming out the end with a clip on it) Connect the clip on the light to a metal ground under the dash and with the fuse panel where you can see it, touch the pointer to each side of the back of the fuses, with the key on. The light should lght on both sides of a good fuse. If a fuse lights the light on one side and not the other it's blown. For the radio to work three fuses all need to be good as theirs all the time power and key on power and lighting as the dash lights power. The cigar fuse many times provides the all the time power, But if it's blown the radio won't play. Pull one fuse at a time and look at them to see if the bar inside the fuse is good ( they can look good and be bad) back to the test light meathod, Look the fuses up in the owers manul and it'll tell you the location of the fuse but the radio fuse can be good and the radio strill not work as the cigar fuse has to be good too, There;s another fuse panel under the hood that has the main fuses near the battery, Again the test light is fastest and easiest as any fuse blown even though it's not the radio fuse can make the radio not play. Aftermarket radios can have inline fuses instlled by the radio installer and some have fuses right on the back of the radio.

After replacing battery in 2002 Toyota Sequoia, radio losses memory everytime vehicle is started. What is wrong?


The radio uses a constant power to retain memory(stations,settings,ect.) and switched power to run on. It sounds like there is a problem with the constant power connection. You can first check the fuse box for any blown fuses and replace any that are found. Also look around the battery for any wires with an inline fuse that could be broken. Try looking under the dash near the radio for any inline fuse holders that could have a blown fuse. You might need to pull the radio and start tracing the constant 12v power wire. First verify that it does have power and if it does then the radio may have been damaged from a voltage spike when the new battery was installed. If the wire does not have power then you will need to start tracing the wire back to the source of the short. It sounds to me like a blown fuse somewhere....

Radio fuse has blown need to know which one it is


there should be a 'legend' on fuse box cover identifying locations specific to your model.blown fuses are readily identified when removed & inspected. after market radios usually have an 'inline' fuse on the power supply wire as well.

Hooked up a two-way radio,now speedometer, rpm, gas gages don't work


I'd check for
(1) blown fuse (owner's manual should list which fuse is for the instrument panel - may list it as IP fuse)
(2) broken wire or loose wire in area where you obtained power for the new accessory.

Where did you get power for the 2-way radio?

If you find a blown fuse, replace, and it immediately blows again, unhook the 2-way radio, replace fuse, and see if that works.
