Question about 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Open Question

Radio dead after jump starting and already changed fuses

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

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

Radio not working


I believe the Kia has 2 fuses for the radio, one in the cabin, and one in the engine compartment. Check them both. If they are good, your radio is toast.
