Question about 2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac

1 Answer

No power to radio and all fuses in the panel are good. I tried to pull the radio to see if there is a fuse inline, the left side the tool will not go all the way in

My battery ran down and I recharged it everything worked except my radio cd player there is no power to it and there is six cds stuck in it. I bought the removale tools to take it out, but the left side the tool will not go all the way in, so I can't even pull the deck to see if there is an in line fuse

Where is the radio fuse on a 1995 camry? I do not see a fuse box under dash.

1.Answer It is a 15A fuse (#24), located in the instrument panel fuse box (behind the small fold out draw on lower the left side of dash board. Left of the steering wheel). It is the far right fuse on the middle row.

2. I had the same problem when my dome light went off. When I pulled its blown fuse, the radio went out. The radio fuse was fine, but when I replaced the dome light fuse, the radio came back on again. The dome light fuse is a 20A in the fuse box under the hood next to the battery.

3.there is on fuse in the back of the radio itself

None of the dashboard instruments are working since the moment I change the battery cables. The radio, wipers from and rear, panel lights, driving lights and a/c are working, but the dashboard instru

Pull the fuse for the dash gauges. Could be corrosion. If that doesn't fix it. Remove the instrument panel, pull the plug and put it back in. Corrosion again. Since it worked before and "all" the gauges went south. Either one of these should fix your problem.

My car is a 2006 honda accord. a friend somehow mixed the terminals up and the radio went dead when we finally got it right. it hasnt come on sinse then

Terminals for what, the battery? Anyway, you likely blew a fuse-check the fuse panel under the dash-should be a radio fuse. Radios often have two power sources, both would be fused, sometimes a power wire has an inline fuse.
If you find the radio fuse and it is good, better use a test light and check that your fuse panel is getting power to it. The radio fuse would have power to it with the key in ON. In fact, with key on, every fuse in the fuse panels would show power on a test light. The little slots at the top ends of every fuse are open to the metal strip inside the fuse. Ground the test light lead to a metal bracket or screw, and touch the test light probe into the slot. With key on, every good fuse will light the test light on both ends of the fuse-fuse is good and has not blown-a bad fuse will only light up the test light on one end of the fuse-the metal strip inside has blown apart.
You can check all your fuses this way-don't have to pull them out to inspect. But also most important for you to know is, does your fuse panel have power being fed to it. If those terminals were battery terminals, you may have blown a bigger fuse that feeds the fuse panel, one of your maxi fuses under the hood in the Power Distribution Box.
Good luck. Post back with what you find.

No power to cd player or ceiling light grand vitara 2003

fuse, called dome fuse is blown, or radio fuse.
fuses that look bad, are, fuses that look good, may be...........
check fuses with an ohmmeter, fuses that look good can have very tiny cracks and are not good, only an ohmmeter works, on fuses with 100% accuracy. (a volt meter works in circuit even better !!!)
Did you test the dome lamp to see if it really works?
pull it , put across 12v battery ,does it glow?
did you look at the radio. and see if it has its own inline fuse?
did you hot wire the radio power wire to see if the radio even works at all?
if you have DMM with voltmeter this is so very easy to trace.

How do find the radio fuse when it is blown

Easy way. With a test light connected to ground ( a test light is a tool that looks like a ice pick with a clear handle with a bulb inside, and a wire coming out the end with a clip on it) Connect the clip on the light to a metal ground under the dash and with the fuse panel where you can see it, touch the pointer to each side of the back of the fuses, with the key on. The light should lght on both sides of a good fuse. If a fuse lights the light on one side and not the other it's blown. For the radio to work three fuses all need to be good as theirs all the time power and key on power and lighting as the dash lights power. The cigar fuse many times provides the all the time power, But if it's blown the radio won't play. Pull one fuse at a time and look at them to see if the bar inside the fuse is good ( they can look good and be bad) back to the test light meathod, Look the fuses up in the owers manul and it'll tell you the location of the fuse but the radio fuse can be good and the radio strill not work as the cigar fuse has to be good too, There;s another fuse panel under the hood that has the main fuses near the battery, Again the test light is fastest and easiest as any fuse blown even though it's not the radio fuse can make the radio not play. Aftermarket radios can have inline fuses instlled by the radio installer and some have fuses right on the back of the radio.

Where is the fuse for the radio in the 2006 Toyota Corolla? Not finding it by pedal or glove box only fuse box i find is under the hood?

hi if the fuse is not located in the fuse box under the hood try the aux fuse in the fuse box if this is ok then the problem could be either with the stereo itself or some stereo's have an inline fuse but to get to it you need to pull the stereo out and the fuse will either be in the back of the stereo or it will be inline on the live wire to the stereo you will be able to see it as soon as you pull the stereo out.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Radio has no sound, not the fuse as the lights are lighting up on radio or cd but no noise what so ever...just quit??? Went to turn car off and thought I hit some type of mute button by mistake...I have no...

Make sure and check both fuses.There are usually 2 for the radio.One for clock and lighting and one for power.There is a fuse panel on the passengers side also.So there is one fuse panel on the left side of the instrument panel and one on the right.One fuse is in the left and the power fuse is on the right side panel.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Radio in 1990 Saab

Hi Leah:

Although you didn't say what type of radio you have (original Clarion or a replacement) there is sometimes a fuse back of the radio. The two tools you'll get, each insert into two holes, one above the other, on each side/edge of the radio, whether Clarion or replacement. When pushed in, they release a latch and the radio will pull out. You might be able to see an inline fuse at the back of the radio enclosure.

It is possible that it's a problem with the power supply to the radio - an intermittent break, and they're difficult to track down. Rewiring the power supply side and ensuring that the ground connection is good and solid, is the easiest route to eliminate this possibility.

After that, it could be a fault in the radio, again intermittent or possibly temperature related. If so, replacement of the radio is the usual fix, as repair usually isn't cost effective.

Hope this helps. Let us know if there is anything new to add.

Good luck

2002 Chevy Malibu (Radio fuse)

There is a panel on the passengers side of the car, I pulled the fuse used for OnStar because I dont use it. I didn see any labling on mine but it was the fuse located second from the top on the left side, but you have to be looking at it side ways because of the way the fuse box is orientated.
And then put it in the socket all the way to the right second from the bottom, again looking at it sideways. NOTE: My car is a 2006 Malibu LT
