Question about 1999 Ford Taurus

1 Answer

Radio and clock will not work. The fuses are good i think.

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

Section 15-00: Audio Systems—Service 1999 Taurus, Sable Workshop Manual DIAGNOSIS AND TESTING Inspection and Verification NOTE: Many customers do not understand the limitations of FM reception. Refer the customer to the Owner Guide for information about the limitations of FM radio performance.

Internal diagnostic examination of the integrated control panel, rear chassis unit and audio compact disc player should be left to the authorized radio service center. However, the automotive technician should be able to analyze and isolate radio reception conditions to the proper area or component causing the condition. All radio conditions can be isolated to one of six general areas:
  • antenna system
  • integrated control unit
  • radio speaker system
  • radio noise suppression equipment
  • rear chassis unit
  • audio communications protocol network
Retrieving Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs)
Using Audio System On-Board Diagnostics
The audio system has on-board diagnostic capabilities and is equipped to check for every component available in the system even if this specific vehicle is not equipped with all components. A Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) will be set for the missing components. These DTCs can be ignored if the vehicle is not equipped with these components. The battery must be fully charged for proper audio system operation. The ignition switch must be in the RUN or ACC position. Turn the system on, tune in a strong AM station and verify good reception. After an AM station is checked, tune in a strong FM station. The system is now ready to enter the diagnostic mode. Diagnostic Mode:
NOTE: Battery must be fully charged for proper audio system operation and self-test.

Enter Diagnostics mode by pressing SEEK DOWN button first and then pre-set button 3. Hold both buttons for five seconds. This will suspend all normal radio functions, retain the previously selected frequency and display DIAG.
  1. NOTE: To perform diagnostics, press the appropriate buttons as instructed.

    SYSTEM CONFIGURATION SELF-TEST:
    Press pre-set button 1. This will check for connection of all possible devices and log the diagnostic trouble codes for any device that does not respond. The display will flash SELF while gathering the diagnostic trouble codes, then stop flashing when complete. To exit System Configuration Self-test, press pre-set button 1 again. To retrieve diagnostic trouble codes, press the TUNE UP button. This will display the diagnostic trouble codes if any exist. Continued pressing of the TUNE UP button will display the next diagnostic trouble code. Record codes and refer to the following table. To exit the Retrieval Mode, press pre-set button 1.


    CONFIGURATION SELF-TEST CODES Code Description 0 No diagnostic trouble codes logged 1 No response from rear chassis unit 2 No response from tape deck 3 No response from bezel microprocessor 4 No response from compact disc player 5 No response from steering wheel controls 6 No response from rear seat control 7 No response from remote climate control 8 No response from navigation module 9 Read Only Memory verification failed
    Remember, system configuration will test for all possible equipment connections. Inspect the vehicle to determine actual equipment installed.
  1. Integrated control panel display test:
    To enter the integrated control panel display test, press pre-set button 5. This check will light all segments in the integrated control panel. The system will automatically exit this test after five seconds.
  1. Integrated control panel and rear chassis unit identification:
    To enter this test, press pre-set button 3. This test identifies the software level of the integrated control panel and rear chassis unit. The integrated control panel is tested first, followed by the rear chassis unit. The completed test will exit automatically. For code identification, refer to the following table.

Ingterior lights, clock and radio memory won't work on 1998 isuzu rodeo when key is not on


The radio receives power from the 15A AUDIO FUSE in the dash fuse box. The radio memory receives power from the 10A DOME LIGHT FUSE in the same box. The problems you note suggest the radio may have been misconnected at some point or there has been a fuse failure or there is a broken connection.

Radio and clock dont work


The radio and clock get power from the battery for memory thru a different fuse than the radio fuse. Sometimes this is thru the cig lighter circuit.
You might want to look at all of the fuses.
Could be a problem inside the radio too.

My radio and cigarrette lighter stopped working and the fuses seem to be good, what else could it be?


Seems like the accessory circuit is gone. If the feed cable is completely burned out, or severed, the fuse might be good, but the power will not reach the accessories. I am not too sure, but i think that the clock is part of this circuit too, is it working?

Chrysler Voyager 2003 battery went dead now radio won't even turn on, clock doesn't work


i assume you put a new battery in,van runs but no radio or clock, check all your fuses first,and also make sure that radio doesnt have anti theft system, if it does then read your manualy on how to enter the code,if it needs a code then it wont work until code is entered,careful if you do the code entering wrong three times then radio shuts down for one hour, then you would need to have the key on or van running for one hour straight,

Check your cigarette lighter/aux power port it may be on the same circuit as the clock. If the fuse is OK then it is likely an internal issue with the clock itself. This is a very common problem with several clocks. I offer a repair service that has a lifetime guarantee and is several hundred dollars cheaper than buying a new clock (that will also eventually fail).
