Sounds like you have a broken wire. or a blown fuse. if you checked all your fuses. and they all show good. you can do a overlay. fuse a wire at the fuse box and run it right to the radio switched ignition.

My 2004 Ford Escapes radio wont work and it doesnt let me lock my doors when the car isnt running it also doesnt ding when the car doors are open. what is happening?


Hello Al,

Does your dash display a flashing "service soon" indicator?
Have you checked for fault codes?

You have a good battery, your ignition switch is powering up the vehicles dash board and the vehicle will start and operate normally....?

Any lights on the radio display?
Check for 12 volts on the radio power lead...no power? check for 12 volts across the accessory / radio position in the fuse box. No power but fuse is good...wiring issue in the harness.

Power across fused circuit no power to radio check radio's in line fuse...fuse good? ... radio bad or disconnected speaker wires.

Make sure all your vehicles grounding positions are clean and tight.

When you say your door locks don't work are your talking about the switch on the door or the remote fob?

Check your owners manual to check for any radio reset info.

I need a 12 volt switched power supply for my sirius radio, where cani find a wire i can hook into?


Check the large wires coming down the steering column from the ignition switch. Use a test light and find one that illuminates the test light with the key in the on position.

Truck won't start


If the engine will not crank, it could be the starter, the neutral safety switch, or a bad connection.
A mechanic would check the starter circuit back to the key switch.

Had factory radio, burned out or so I thought. Replaced with after market, not the first one in there. Bought wire harness so I did not need to cut any wires. Now I have no power to the new deck. Fuses are...


Check all your fuses first. The yellow wire behind the deck is for a constant 12 volts from the battery( to retain memory), the red wire is for switched power, for example when you turn the key it should be 12 volts, when you remove the key(or turn off) there should be no voltage on the red wire, and of course, make sure you have a good ground. Use a test light when performing these tests, it's a time saver.

First of all, the Bose amplifier needs to be activated when the after-market head unit is turned on. This is done by connecting a activation wire (often called a "remote" wire) in the factory radio plug. Usually this is a dark green or orange wire in the main radio plug, but in Onstar-equipped vehicles, the remote wire may be pink or orange in the smaller, secondary plug. In either case, the wire must be connected to the blue/white remote output from your new head unit, in order for the Bose amplifier to turn on.

I have a newer radio and want to install it, but isnt sure which wires connect, they are different colors


use a volt-meter or test light to find the positive supply power from your vehicles wires, and the ground wire too. attach those to the new radio's power wires (and attach the new radio's ignition power wire, or switching wire to the positive power wire from your vehicle too). The point will be to get power to the new radio so that you can do a trial by error to find which speakers turn on when you connect them. Just follow the sound! after you have found all the speaker wires. the last thing is to find which wire from your vehicle needs to be attached to the ignition wire on your radio. This wire makes sure your radio is off when your keys are turned off so not to drain the battery. if you cannot find a switching ignition wire, run a wire to a connection in the back of a fuse panel connection (which you can test any connection with your volt meter to see if it shuts off with the key.
