Are you sure you are looking at the right fuse block in the manual? There might be two different pages showing two different fuse blocks. One in the cab and one under the hood. If you are thinking fuse, check the cig lighter too, normaly they are on the same ciricut.

Stereo dos not work

first confirm fuse for radio circuit is good, replace if its blown.
If fuse is good, and radio still not working, check power wires and plugs from back of radio to fuse block--check for broken wire, rubbing wire (worn insulation = short in circuit), loose connecting blocks, loose /broken wires in connection blocks. If that all checks out -- got to the nearest wrecker and get a 2nd hand radio OR by an aftermarket radio. OR pay an auto-radio shop to check your radio and maybe the wiring.

I need to know which fuse powers the trailer plug, I shorted it out and the owners manual does not match the fuse block

Hi Stephen, I'm glad to help!

Most all trailer wiring is run off the rear lighting system, with the exception of the power and ground that runs to the battery with an inline fuse. Some wiring also hooks to the TIPM which is the fuse box under the hood. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Stephen.

Where is fuse for radio in 2000 Lincoln continental ls

Page 145 of this manual says that the fuse for the Radio is located in block 4. Match the picture to the same orientation as your fuse panel and count the appropriate rows. Very quick and easy. This information should be in your owners manual. The link I provided is an online version of your owners manual.

My 1994 geo tracker 2 door auto runs great all the light work but the radio doesn't.

The least costly problem would be the radio fuse located in your Tracker fuse box/block. You can see a visual of the fuse box location in your owners manual. Next would be someone has switched out the radio at some time and did not reconnect the power line. As the radio does not light up at all, this is a power radio problem...if your radio light up but does not play, it could be your antennae is not plugged in to the back of your radio. If you have to remove the radio, there are many good radio shops that should test your radio for power, for free...Best Buy is usually helpful. Hope this helps.

Radio will not power off with ignition switch

On some vehicles, this is normal. The radio will not stop playing until the door is opened....I have no way of knowing if this applies to your vehicle. As for "Fuse 19" is absolutely impossible to look anything up to see everything this fuse is protecting. If you would like good answers that may possibly help you fix your vehicle, it would be wise to take the time to post the YEAR, MAKE, MODEL and ENGINE SIZE of the vehicle you are talking about.

Also, most modern automobiles have several fuse blocks...when you talk about fuse 19, it would be wise to mention WHICH fuse 19.. in the engine compartment fuse block? In the fuse block under the dash? is it a fuse block under a rear seat? Is it a fuse block in the luggage compartment? Etc... If you are not really sure of the best way to describe it, try looking it up in the Owner's Manual.

That way, those of us that work with cars on a daily basis will understand the nature of your problem better.

I lost my manual guide for 2002 ford explorer. Witch fuse belongs to the power windows?

It is fuse #17 in the fuse block under the driver side dash. That fuse controls the dome light, radio, and power windows in the 2002 Explorer. Nowhere n the manual does it tell you that the power windows are on that fuse. I am going from recent personal experience. It is a 15A mini fuse (blade type). Good luck!

The color of the wires from my old and new radio dont match up!?

Jags are definitely a pure breed. The new radio most likely has writing on the wires that tell where they are to be connected to. I take that back. I just checked the wiring of an older model JVC unit and there or not listings. If your radios doesn't have writing just remember Orange(or yellow) is illumination, and it goes to the fuse block; red is power, going to the fuse block; the big black one is the ant.; the little one is the ground to the chassis. The others are speakers. Connect them to the colors they are closely resembling in your Jag. Connect the power and turn on your radio. You can reconnect the lines to the correct speaker by checking each speaker. hope this helps.

Not likely as a result of sitting too long, but there is a possibility that your radio went into theft mode when you cleaned the battery if you disconnected either of the terminals. The fuse for the radio is inside your car, likely in the fuse block on the end of the dash when you open your door. There should be a fuse block schematic either on the door removed to gain access to the fuse block, or in your Owner's Manual.

If it's a radio code issue you may need to consult with your VW Dealer. The radio, however, should power on and then provide you with some indication that the radio has gone into safe mode.
