Has the star button on the steering wheel been pressed as this mutes the radio. just press it again to un mute. If this is not the issue, then more info on the radio model type is required.

    are there fuses in the radio itself?

  • Neil Apr 01, 2014

    There is a fuse at the back of the radio. This is only accessable if you remove the radio. If this fuse is blown, then the radio will not switch on. Check if the multiplug is in correctly at the rear of the radio, if it is then I would say that the amp part of your radio has blown.

Power on, clock works, CD works, NO SOUND from the radio

Check the speaker wires maybe they have worked loose. And speakers themselves as they may blown. Do you have an amp if so check its fuse. Also check for inoperative interior lights, lighter, and horn. One of these circuits will power the radio's memory circuit. Some radio models will appear to work normally but have no sound if the memory fuse is blown. The clue is the clock will reset to 12:00 each time you turn on the ignition switch.

Radio shuts off after 5 seconds

I'm not sure what radio option you have in your vehicle or if you have any aftermarket equipment installed to interface radio functions or operations. But if it is the Mark Levinson set up, the software that controls the the function that you are having problems with, is possibly corrupted and radio may need to be reprogrammed at the dealer with new updates/calibrations so it can stay in communication with radio amplifier and all other options including the HVAC system controls. For being a 01' model, this car was way ahead if its time!

My 2008 honda accord xm radio stopped working.

If it is a built in system, which is sounds like it is. Your XM receiver is not functioning correctly. I believe a replacement XM receiver is covered under your warranty if you have one with your Honda dealership.

No sound comming from the left side speakers in my 04 Envoy XUV.

Did you try your balance control on the radio? You will find FADE, and BAL. The balance will move the sound from side to side. If thats not it, it sounds as thought one of the harnesses behind the radio came loose. Hope that helps

Ford premium radio 1992 explorer

There is an amplifier located under the passenger side rear trim panel in the cargo area, the radio is just what they call a head unit, the amplifier provides the sound, that is most likely your problem.
