Question about 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

1 Answer

Radio Dead and already changed fuses that were not blown

I jump started my truck and the radio no longer works. I changed both the RADIO and RADIO AMP fuses under the hood, and still nothing. Is there another fuse somewhere (already checked the door jam)? Could I have fried the radio by jumping it even though the fuses weren't blown?

I think the body control module is shorting out . The body control module can be over heating internally then shorted out. All the parts you mention have a circuit running to the body control module. I would have the vehicle checked for codes at a repair shop , then check the wiring to the body control module.
good luck

Is the radio stock? If so have you tried getting a different OEM radio?

SOURCE: 2002 Chevy Malibu (Radio fuse)

There is a panel on the passengers side of the car, I pulled the fuse used for OnStar because I dont use it. I didn see any labling on mine but it was the fuse located second from the top on the left side, but you have to be looking at it side ways because of the way the fuse box is orientated.
And then put it in the socket all the way to the right second from the bottom, again looking at it sideways. NOTE: My car is a 2006 Malibu LT

#5) If your Solenoid and Starter Don't Check out OK,Then Replace Starter and Solenoid.NOTE: Chevy Starters Have Shims that go Between the Starter and Block.Because the Casting on the Starters are not all the Same Thickness. If there were Shims when you Pulled your Stater Don't Throw them out you could Need them with your New Starter.

#6) Re-Install your NEW Starter and Solenoid Put your Wires Back on the Same Terminals they Came off the Old Starter Solenoid. Make Sure they are Good and Tight.

When I jumped my batterie i accidently reversed the negative and posotive after, the radio stopped working I checked fuse, fuse was ok what do i check now


There is usually more than one fuse for the radio.

in the instrument panel fuse block there will be an AUDIO fuse and an AV fuse. If the radio has an amp there will be an AMP fuse in the under hood fuse block.

If all three of those are good let me know and I'll try to help you further.

The battery went dead, had to jump start the car. The radio stays off & a blank screen. how do I restart the radio Thanks


GET A GOOD FUSE TESTER, TEST EACH FUSE. THERE ARE 2 FUSEBOXES. ONE UNDER THE HOOD & ONE IN THE DASH. ALL FUSES CAN BE TESTED WHILE STILL IN PLACE. THERE ARE TEST POINTS FACING OUT. TURN ON IGNITION SWITCH FOR THIS TEST. POWER ON 1 SIDE, BAD FUSE POWER ON BOTH SIDES, GOOD FUSE. POWER ON NEITHER SIDE, SPARE FUSE.

Have you checked the radio fuse? You may have blown the fuse when you jumped the car. The fuse box should be out under the hood encased in black plastic.

The radio/clock dash light on my 2004 matrix are out! ...solution?


The 15 amp dome fuse is in the fuse box under the hood and the 15 amp CIG fuse is in the lower finish panel up under the dash on the drivers side. These are needed for the radio. The above fuses plus the 15 amp Gauge fuse in the box with the dome fuse under the hood are needed for the clock.

I also have clock removal instructions at my website www.autoclockrepair.com
