Does it have power to it? If so, how much current does it draw, with how much voltage applied? Are any speakers connected to it, and are they good? Does anything light up on the radio? Does it have any other functions, such as CD player, or tape player, and if so, are any of those media present in the unit? If there is voltage applied but zero current, look for a blown fuse, a popped circuit breaker, or other internal total disconnection means in the unit, such as a broken or burned up wire, or broken solder connection.

What can i check to see that my radio is working

In this case you will need to troubleshoot what is the cause;
1. Check to see if your power button is working fine.
2. Test if you have power running through to the radio from the source.
3. Check if your radio fuse is not blown
4. If all the above is working fine and still the radio does not come on, I suggest you take it to the repair shop.

Why will my Xm radio work but the fm radio won't?

Troubleshooting the problem may depend on which of several radio options is installed in your vehicle. However, the most probable cause is the antenna. Two different antennas are involved here - one for XM (satellite), one for FM (terrestrial - window type). To start, I would check the FM antenna connections at the window and the radio and the cable between them. If that isn't the problem, the radio is probably faulty.

Do you have a display monitor or a regular type of radio? I didn't see any recalls out that would effect the radio volume. If it is a regular type of radio it should have a regular volume knob. If the radio is aftermarket, which means it was put in after the factory radio, it could be any type of knob or button. If it is a factory display monitor you need to get to the home screen and select the radio option where you should see the volume. Sometimes with any radio that lets you plug in a smartphone or mp3 player the problem is that you haven't pushed the plug into the phone jack all the way. I see this all the time these days. The plug is usually pushed into the radio all the way but not the phone. Also if the radio is equiped to play plug in media like songs from an iphone, you may want to try and plug a cable in and out of the radio jack a couple times if you haven't already. Your question was brief and with a better discription I could be more useful. I hope this helps.
Oh by the way there are 5 recalls on your type of vehicle. That doesn't mean that your vehicle falls under the recall but it is worth calling a dealership and giving them your Vehicle Identification Number or VIN to check. You can also stop by a dealer and they can check it out. It's free so i would do it for sure.

How to replace ecm on oldsmobile alero

Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.

To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

From start to end troubleshooting these problems I suggest you to check the help link below and follow its procedure: -----

2002 jaguar radio stopped working no display

HI, you have an electric short somewhere or a blown fuse. It's difficult to tell, since I don't know what you've already checked. A wire could have also come loose. If the fuse it good, you may need to check the wiring to the device. Of course, there could be a short circuit or blown board in the radio itself. Without taking it to a certified repair mechanic, the trying and troubleshooting is going to be up to you; but, these are a few things that I would check. Good luck!

My Aux input on the radio does not work when I plug in my iPod. I've checked the fuses and replaced my miniphone plug cable, but still nothing. Any ideas? 2007 Tundra double cab 4X4 long bed 4.7 L

Fuses have nothing to do with it plug another type of player, radio, cd, etc into it. Your IPOD output may not even work.It may be shop bound (your radio).

2003 BMW CI Convertable Radio/CD Problem

Had the same problem with my '03 330xi. Navigation worked fine but radio and CD did not work at all. I opened the fuse box located in the glove compartment to check the three fuses associated with the navigation system and radio. #7, #39, and #41. All three fuses were intact so I put them back in. I then put the key into the ignition, turned it to position 2 and miraculously the radio came to life. I guess it acted as some type of reset?
