It is hard to troubleshoot this type of problem without a volt-ohm-meter. If you have one (or get one from Radio Shack or the hardware store) use it to measure the actual voltage getting to the red power cable getting into the radio (you will to remove it from the dash) if there is power, the problem is in the unit, if there is none you need to find where it is getting interrupted (probably at the fuse box). If a fuse blew, you still need to ask yourself why it blew. It could have been a bad fuse but more likely something downstream from the fuse malfunctioned, demanding more power than the radio is supposed to need. One way to deal with this is to pop in a new fuse. If it blows too, stop! Something is wrong with the radio or the wiring and it need to be fixed first.

Have you removed stereo from dash? check fuse in rear of stereo. Make sure you have got the stereos sequrity number before removing stereo if its the genuine system fitted to vehicle if not stereo wont work until code entered.

SOURCE: electrical problems in subaru - can't get my brand new stereo installed and working

the airbag should be fine aslong as the light is not on. the airbag wires are wrapt in yellow plastic. check all fuses with test light cos the wires for those accesory arn't near the radio at all. there are two power wires for the radio CONSTANT and ACCESORY if you have the two around the wrong way it could cause this problem.

Need to know how to fix the windows in the stereo in my 1996 Lincoln Continental.all the fuses are fine, I don't know what to do next

None of the windows work ? You say fuses are good , which fuses ? Did you pull them all out an look at them ? Did you check for power - battery voltage at the window switches ? There is a driver door module involved !
  • Power Windows Completely Inoperative
  • Supply open or shorted.
  • Ground open.
  • Window regulator control switch inoperative.
  • Circuits open or shorted.
  • Window regulator electric drive inoperative.
  • Driver door module.
  • PERFORM driver door module self test. Service DTCs. If no DTCs are retrieved, GO to Pinpoint Test C .
If you don't know electrical circuit testing suggest you take to a AES certified repair shop ! If you plan to do this anyway your going to need a wiring diagram , wiring harness layout , volt ohm meter !

I have a 2001 Ford Taurus, just installed a factory stereo/heat control unit back in the car but I have no power to the stereo. What should I check?

I would check the fuses for the radio. One should be in the engine compartment distribution box and there should be another fuse in the interior fuse box. If these fuses are intact and you have a multimeter, I would check the presence of at least 2 pins with + 12 Volt on the radio connector. The pin out diagram can be seen if you do a search for the 2001 Taurus. Good luck, hope this helps.

1997 Buick park avenue, stereo stopped working but still says the time how an i make it work

The clock is on a seperate electrical circult from the power for the stereo itself. So the clock can work and the stereo could be bad. Get out your owners manual and check the fuses for the stereo first. If the fuses are good check for power to the fuses with a test light.

No power to stereo

This is supplied through a main fuse AM1, then a 15A fuse for the radio and cig lighter. So if the cig lighter works, it is not those faulty but likely the fuse in the radio. See here p10 for the location of these fuses.

Car turns over but won't start fuel injector fuse and ignition fuses are good but no power is getting to them. also the stereo and wipers only work when ignition is on accessory. when its on r

Sounds like it could be a bad ignition switch-the electrical part, not the lock cylinder. When key is in the on position (run), those fuses should be powered. Are all the maxi-fuses good? They distribute power throughout the car's electrical circuits-like the fuse panel, for instance, so check the maxi-fuses. If good, probably the ignition switch is bad.

Electrical wiring

You need to revisit the fuse box ,, there may be more than one ! If you think the dashlights fuse are intact , check by switching on/off the side lights while checking the fuse. The fuse beside the side lights fuse should also be a side light fuse. They are handed LH and RH for safety reasons and check you have both side lights in the front. Power locks may be a dash switch /plug connection. Worst case senario ,(temperarily) remove radio and remove any fault you may have introduced into the system . A small bulb type tester will be a great help ! Good luck

check the power wires onthe stereo and make sure they go to a power source other thanfuel system they should go to the 12 V. power source and the acc. line. if the stereo system has a amplifier it could be to close to something in the fuel electrical system and emf's (electro magnetic field) is messing with it try moving the amp to another location away from any wiring systems especially the computer brain. hope this helps.
