Question about 1999 Ford Taurus
My radio will not come on and my clock wont either. All the fuses seem to be good. I think I accidentally hit the BLACK/PINK wire for the power antenna on the side of the car. That might have grounded the wire. When this happened the radio was playing and then it blew out along with the clock. but they did work about a week ago. can someone tell me whats going on or how to fix it ??? THANKS
Check fuses first. please rate as fixed if this solves you rissue. report back results.
