I pulled the fuse
put the fuse back in
turn on the radio, insert a CD
pulled the fuse again, counted to 5
inserted the fuse again
while the CD started playing I clicked the Menu button and used the tunning dial to select default settings, and it asks if you want to reset default choose yes.
my radio works fine now!
thanks to all who posted this solution it works!

SOURCE: problems with the radio
If the original radio was replaced, code on manual wont match. Most replacement brands have better sound quality than OEM radios. CDs for cars are on their way out (bulk and number of songs at hand) Buy a reputable brand that can accept IPODs or pendrives. All you need to know is if your present radio is DIN or Double DIN , in order to know what size to buy.

You may have fried the radio. When you have a poor ground the electrical components that you are trying to use, starter, headlights and things like that. They are going to try to ground in other places than what they are supposed to. You may have sent a lot of amperage through the radio somehow, and burned out the internal circuits. It's only a theory, you may want to check with a dealer, or a place that sevices radio's. Good luck!!

Hi, the fix is internal, sounds like the connector just came undone. The actual procedure for fixing it is complicated and for someone to fix it for you, will cost almost as much as a aftermarket stereo. Sounds like it's a good time to upgrade....
