Could be that you need to enter the radio code. If your battery was disconnected or too low, a theft prevention circuit activates and doesn't allow the radio to turn on.

Your car dealer or mfg. will help.

    The fuses should be under the dash on the driver's left. Some radio fuses are in the radio cable. Some fuse boxes have labels telling what each fuse is for. Otherwise you have to pull out and check all fuses. A tough job we all do sometimes. If you can go to autozone.com they have a lot of info on your car including schematics and fuse box locations. Try it, or you could give us your car info.

After having had to jump start the battery, the camera and radio don't work. How do you reset it or check to see if something got disconnected when jumped.?


Normally jump starting doesn't involve disconnecting anything. You put the leads from a good battery onto the terminals of the bad battery and start the vehicle. I hope you didn't put the good battery on, start the vehicle and remove the battery with the engine still running and connect the old one? That is a recipe to cause electrical damage as the charge from the alternator has nowhere to dissipate its excess amps.

Check your fuses.

new models (2002 onwards) can not be jump started they have to be trickle charged off a battery. will say this in the manual. jump starting off another car can damage the electrics. you will off blown the fuse's in the control unit.... the unit will need to opened and the fuse checked and replaced these are soldered fuse's. wiring should be fine.

Since your car was the one getting jumped there should be no damage,all I can think is if the batt. was flat dead it may have changed the settings on the body control computer,I would suggest
looking in the owners manual for dome light options ,I think the radio is the "remote control" for a lot of owner options like that.
Also make sure the chassis ground ( the smaller black wire on the neg.batt. terminal) is a good connection.

Your radio/nav system needs a code. Go the your dealer's parts department , give them the VIN of your car( should be free $0). Punch in the code through the car radio and your radio/nav system should work right away.
