You will need to remove your radio to check this. They have 2 different radios for your vehicle. When you pull out your radio that is how you will tell. One will have 16 pins in the plug for the radio or it will have 7 pins for the plug in the radio. If you have the radio with the 16 pin connector the your power wires are pin # 7 a yellow with a green tracer wire and pin # 16 an orange with a black tracer. Your ground will be pin # 8 a black with a green tracer wire. If you have the 7 pin connector then your power wires are pin 1 a orange with a black tracer and pin # 3 a yellow with a green wire. Your grounds will be pin # 2 a black with ayellow tracer and pin # 6 a black wire with a green tracer if you have all of that then the radio has probably failed.

I have a 2010 kia soul with a radio that won't turn on. No display, no sound and wont turn on at all. Totally dead radio. Is there anything I can check on my end before having to go to the dealer?


You can check the fuse for the radio. Also some radios have a security feature and only a code can make it work again. It is usually found on the glove compartment. Check owners manual of the car. A 5 digit code.

My 2004 Ford Escapes radio wont work and it doesnt let me lock my doors when the car isnt running it also doesnt ding when the car doors are open. what is happening?


Hello Al,

Does your dash display a flashing "service soon" indicator?
Have you checked for fault codes?

You have a good battery, your ignition switch is powering up the vehicles dash board and the vehicle will start and operate normally....?

Any lights on the radio display?
Check for 12 volts on the radio power lead...no power? check for 12 volts across the accessory / radio position in the fuse box. No power but fuse is good...wiring issue in the harness.

Power across fused circuit no power to radio check radio's in line fuse...fuse good? ... radio bad or disconnected speaker wires.

Make sure all your vehicles grounding positions are clean and tight.

When you say your door locks don't work are your talking about the switch on the door or the remote fob?

Check your owners manual to check for any radio reset info.

Speakers stop working, checked radio and its OK


If your Subaru has the separate power amplifier, check the 30A SBF-8 fuse in the SBF holder and the 20A fuse in the relay block (RED/BLK wire). Either or both may be loose. There is a DIN cord that connects the radio audio outputs to the power amplifier. This may be loose

My break light fuse keeps blowing in my 97 suburban any ideas why


Assuming it's a K1500, 15A STOP/HAZ fuse 1 in the instrument panel fuse block is the source of power. If the stop lamp switch checks OK, and the center high mount stop lamp is OK, the cruise control system gets input at this point and may be defective. Fuse 1 also feeds power through the turn/hazard switch to the stop filaments of the tail/stop/turn lamps and these presumably are OK

02 VW Jetta locks, remote, lights, windows stopped working


Same problem with an '03 Golf--remote entry, power windows, and interior lights stopped working. This was easily fixed by replacing fuse #14, (10 amp), located in the driver's side fuse block.

Radio not working


Pull the radio and check the wiring for power ground etc, if all is ok then you will need to send the radio out to an authorized repair shop.
