What do you mean by cannot find & proper fuse? Do you mean the location of said fuse or type of said fuse?

In any case, grab your 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee owners manual and refer to page 345; Turn the vheicle off and remove the keys from the ignition, as a matter of fact, you may even consider removing the negative lead from the vehicles battery before you go any further

Go to a Chrysler dealer or any automotive parts supplier and seek out a replacement 30AMP (Pink) fuse for your vehicle, it may not be a bad idea just to get a kit of different amperages so that you at least have them for future needs

To access the fuse panel under the dash - Tilt your steering wheel to the top most position and lock it - just below the steering wheel's lock lever, you'll see a section of trim that streches about 12" long with what appears to be a flat shelf like section on the top partion of it (just under the the steering lock lever) - Gently grasp this part with your Right hand fingers on the shelf and your right hand thumb below it and pull straight down to reveal the fuse block just on the left hand top of the area you just exposed - Using your manual, locate the 30AMP (Pink) fuse in cavity one and use and appropriate removal tool the pull it straight out from the block (if there's no fuse puller provided within the fuse block, you can use a set of smaller needle nose plyers, just be sure that you do not squeeze the hadles of the plyers too tight or the fuse will crack and break causing the fuse to potentially be stuck in the block) - inspect the fuse to determine that it is blown, a solid V or U shaped connecter from one post to the other say's that's not your issue but a break in the fuse only tells you that the fuse itself has blown, it does not tell you what caused the short that blew it, replace the fuse with the new one and clean up - Reconnect your batter (If you disconnected it) and turn the key to the ACC poosition then turn on your radio to test it - If it blows again, take it to the dealer, you have other problems that could potentially lead to a fire at the very worst

Hope this helps

My cars radio does not turn on.

It's definitely a fuse. I would change out the radio fuse and the fuse that controls your door locks. Fuses don't have to be split to stop working.

I have a 2002 Chevy Malibu, and I somehow blew the fuse for the horn and the radio will not turn on or doors won't ding. Checked the fuse boxes..found the blown fuse for the radio and replaced it and the...

Check your owners manual for the location of a SECOND radio fuse. There are usually TWO fuses for the radio. One is the for the circuit to operate the radio when the ignition switch is turned on, the other is when the switch is off. The second one provides power to the radio when the key is off. It keeps the clock running and your radio presets. The radio requires BOTH fuses to operate properly.

Good Luck . . .

My car horn is stuck on (very loud) and I removed the fuse for the horn, but now my radio or interior lights dont work. What do i do?


was the radio and interior light working before you removed the fuse for the horn? In the process of removing the fuse for the horn, you must have mistakenly tempered with the fuse for the radio and interior light.

So I would suggest you go back to the fuse box and deep them in properly because the interior and radio fuse might not be contacting properly.

I hope this makes sense to you.

Good luck.

The radio in my 2000 beetle will not turn on. i can't seem to find the proper fuse in the in cabin fuse panel. is the a backup fuse under the hood?

there should be 2 fuses directly relating to the radio.
first is a 25 amp fuse for audio system, fuse box on drivers side of dash, number 42.
second is a 10 amp fuse directly in the back of the radio, which you'll need pins to remove.

Radio comes but no sound. Radio seems to be working and the connections are ok. Fuses are ok.

if you dont get even a pop or crack when turned on at first, check the radios memory on the read-out on the radio face and see if its on mute setting, and if this is not the case, there are 2 fuses,one controls memory power and the other controls audio output power, check both as if one fuse is out the other cant make the radio operate properly
