What went wrong with the old radio that can help determine what direction to go in but ALWAYS START with checking that power is actually being applied.

Have you tested the radio apart from the the car using a 12vDC power supply to ensure the radio actually works.

Did you purchase a harness adapter that plugs into the cars wire harness it normally around $20 and places like best buy would install it for free if you purchased from them even if you have your own radio. (at least it use to be that way been a couple years since I did this).

The next step is to make sure you have each wire connected according to the cars specks first then the radios second.

Make sure that the right power is at the right connection mine had a direct line to battery that was hooked up to fused power cable on the radio and one that was with normal harness

When you tested the power from the car to make sure there was power getting to the radio what where your readings did you have at least the amount specified or slightly higher.

Second is the ground wire firmly connected to metal on the car without paint or anything that could be insulating it from having a good ground connection.

If you have more information makes models speck sheets that would help me with solving your problem faster

2002 Holden combo an radio doesn't work no code asked at a Holden office gave vin they said they haven't got it what now?


Did they do a search for radio code through Holden for you or did they say unable to locate code after search? If they have carried out a search and no code is availible then unless you can find a radio specialist who can unlock the radio i would advise replacing it.Due to it's age personally i would fit a new unit.Good luck.

Radio speakers only give off very high frequency low vol. sound.


Keeping it as simple as possible, sounds to me like there is a fault in the wire itself, test the radio by using different speakers and wire.
There is also a fuse or 2 behind the radio (built in) and they sometimes blow, the sporadic working speaker can be a symptom of a slow-blow fuse going. Hope this helps..

2000 bmw x5 nav screen blank. radio works but no


I know this is an old thread, but my 2006 325i Nav screen went bank also, but the radio still played. I noticed the glove box light and trunk light did not turn on also. I was told from mechanics is was probably a CID module for $2200, even though I mentioned the glove box and trunk light light were out and specifically inquired about a fuse. The mechanics never checked the fuses, because I checked my fuses in the glove box and found the fuse 61 marked with a BMW symbol that looks like light bulb was blown. The Nav screen started back up once the fuse was changed.

My Radio and clock screen has went blank volume and controls do not work the clock does not work the radio plays and CD plays but screen is dead. 2001 525I BMW


it sounds like the Multi information display has failed (MID). It is the long display with all the radio controls on it. If you want to find a known good part they are really easy to swap out. Just remove the radio knob and if you look down in there, there is a place to put a T10 (i think maybe bigger or smaller) torx T10 screwdriver.if you turn it while pulling back slightly on the screwdriver it should come right out. It usually is the component that fails but as always you may want to check your fuses.

Radio Works, but Screen is out, Fuse Ok


If everything else is still working and the Fuse is good it is Because the Internal Lighting on the Head Unit is Burnt out. The only way to Fix this is to get a New Head Unit.

Radio dead (not a code issue), Fuse #9 (lighter) keeps blowing


Yes, replacing the #9 fuse in the fuse box under the glove box seemed to do the trick (Front Accessory Socket). Thank you!!
