Low battery voltage. 11.5V min. For both radio and instrument cluster to cut out like that points to low voltage. Does your clock reset to 12:00 too? A scan readout is needed for assessing your problem. I'm sure there are DTC's stored in your ECU memory.
You can go to the dealer and they can help you with the radio code and get the radio working again, but if they want crazy money for the code. Log on to radio-code.com. They can get you the radio code for a small fee and you get to keep the code for future radio lockouts. Good luck and keep me posted, be glad to know your radio is working again.
maybe you should check your battery condition. the voltage should be 12.3-12.8V. many times the voltage is not enough to cranck the engine and supply all the other devices. Try to turn on the radio and then crank the engine. if the radio stay on and the clock reset then the problem is inside the clocks mechanism. hope helped.
generally talking you open up the boot and pull the boot lining from the area of the brake light and you should find a connector that just unscrews in the brake light sector then just replace the bulb hope this helps
First of all, make sure your iginition switch is completely in the off position or your radio will stay on. I had problems with this and all I had to do was make sure my shifter was locked in the park position (try jiggling it around in park until it clicks). If that doesn't help, the fuse for the radio is located on the passenger side of the vehicle on the side of the dashboard- you have to open your door to access it.
