I have a Hyundai elantra Gt 2013. For the first time, the screen of the radio is frozen and won't shut off even if the car is. I went back to the car after 2 hours, and the screen is still lit. I'm af


I would located the fuse box and pull out the fuse for the radio. Keep it out for a minute then replace. That might reset the radio. If that doesn't work, maybe it's still under warranty.

I have a 2000 eclipse gs, I wired up an aftermarket jvc stereo system, even added amp and subs, it drives fine and has given me no problems for months...than suddenly the radio started randomly shutting...


I'll give you the correct answer, but I know you're not going to want to hear it.
Every step you did, following discovery of the first blown fuse, was the wrong thing to do, and made a simple short in wiring (or internal short in the radio or amp) now a major electrical issue.
When a fuse blows, that is telling you that there is a short somewhere "upstream" of that fuse. With the burnt wiring or burnt electronics smell, that typically is due to using a fuse (or wiring circuit) that has far greater amp rating than the gauge of wiring or devices that are connected to that fuse/circuit. Once you smell anything burnt, the simple short has now spread and increased in electrical damage.

You basically forced the electrical system to do far more damage by disconnecting the battery, replacing the under hood fuse, and forcing current/electricity to a shorted out wiring circuit or shorted component (radio or amp). People always make the fatal mistake of disregarding what a fuse is intended for, and what it should tell you, and they try to force faulty/damaged wiring or equipment to work by repeatedly shoving new fuses back in (frequently with higher amp rating). This makes what started as a simple problem, much much worse.

Now, your first step in repair/recovery is to completely remove the amp and radio, inspect each thoroughly (and smell each for burnt smell), but more importantly examine every inch of EVERY wire that leads to these 2 units all the way from the underhood fuse box to the components themselves (not easy, as you know). I suspect there may be a loom of wires that now has a major short with burnt/melted insulation.

Why won't it turn on and produce sound? It became hot and the reciever shut down and I was curious if it may be a fuse or if it is just burnt up


Assuming this is a car sterio, there is a 10 amp fuse on the back of the sterio that could have burn out. There is also two fuses in your fuse panel for the radio. One is generally labeled radio and the other electronics. The electronics fuse is tied in with the beeping function of the vehicle when the door is open with the key in the ignition.

Where is the fuse box located. radio and cigarette lighter won't work


Open the driver door and look on the interior side wall next to where your left knee would be if you were driving. You will find a fuse box there. Open it and pull out the front/bottom most fuse. Hold it up to the light and see if it is burnt in the center. If it is burnt, replace it with a similar color fuse. If it is not burnt check other fuses in that corner of the box until you find the burnt one. Your stuff should now work again until someone uses the lighter.

I got a new battery for my audi a-4...now my radio wont turn on. i hear i need a code, but my radio wont even turn on for me to enter it. pep boys checked my fuses and said they are all fine...?


Yours radio has a burnt fuse in back right side of it (10A). You must extract the radio box out from dash panel in order to replace this burnt fuse. You need two special radio keys extracting tools. For Chorus and Concert AUDI radios use T10057 radio release tool:
1. Switch off all electrical equipment.
2. Remove ignition key.
3. Insert two radio release tools T10057 into slots on radio (bottom front side) until they engage.
4. Pointed ends of grips must face outwards.
5. Grasp hold of grips on radio release tool T10057 and pull radio out of dash panel.
6. Release and unplug electrical connectors at radio.
7. Press release tabs on radio and remove radio release tool T10057.
8. Replace the burnt fuse (10A) with new one.
9. Plug in all connectors.
10. Slide radio carefully into dash panel and engage it in mounting frame.

Radio stays on.


It would be best to pull the radio fuse leaving it out for several minutes then replace it. tis may well fix the problem but if it doesn't you can remove the fuse agin knowing it will not drain the battery over night

2007 ford freestyle radio will not shut off; which fuse can I pul


This kmay be caused by a door ajar switch, the car has delayed exit, in other words when it senses the door has been opened it shuts down all the electronics, it is this way so you can listen to the radio with the key off after you park but don't exit the car.

The fuse number to pull is: #13, it is brown in color. and is a 7.5 Amp
