Battery cleaned now interior lights and radio not working

I had my 1999 Acura RL serviced today where they cleaned the battery leads and sprayed them.. The battery had to be removed. once it was re-installed, the interior lights and radio no longer functioned. checked fuses - ok.

Please help!

    Thanks Redbeard00,



    It turns out that the technician had hooked the battery up to a charging unit while it was still situated in the car. He actually did blow a fuse. The break in the fuse was not in the middle as you would expect. It was on the side.

The problem could be an in-line fuse, close to the battery post. If for some reason the cables were put on backwards(temporarily) or the in-line fuse was pulled on or weak, it could have broke. Let me know if that helps.

How do i remove the radion on a 200 acura rl


You cann't remove only radio you have to remove whole panel which contains radio.

There are two possible scenarios for you car radio panel


1. Your car can have Navigator, Climate Controller and Radio.

2. Your car can have Climate Controller and Radio.

You have to open whole panel.

This Panel contains some of SRS components, so have to be very careful while removing it!

Radio, interior lights, stop working 99 acura rl, replace the fuses, when I turn the ignition on the interrior lights go out


For the radio try this and it could fix it all: If you have jumped or replaced the battery at anytime this will happen. You have to get the serial number off the radio by removing it or partially taking it out to see the numbers on it try not to remove any cords. With the stereo out (to make sure you get the right number off of it) call an Acura dealership with the number and they will give you the another number to enter into the stereo and directions on how to punch the numbers in. Make sure while you have the stereo out you write the serial number down and keep it in a safe place also the number that the Acura dealership gives you because if you sell the car or if it happens again its easily accessible. Good Luck!
