    Unless you have been under the dash or in it moving around connectors and wiring, replacing the car battery wont affect these other acc.I would check all wiring around the battery to make sure you didnt pinch or tear the insulator on any wiring in this area

I have a 2000 chevy venture minivan that wont start due to a short. it blows fuses only when i plug in the stero system. i bought another stereo thinking it was a bad radio but it does the same thing.

to isolate your problem: run a power source from auxiliary power from the fuse box to your radio, connect this to your radio where the fuse connector, this will not interrupt any other fuse which cause to blow due to over loading. Your radio should work w/out any interruption. good luck.

I have a 2002 Explorer. After the radio and windows stopped working, I did some research and found #17 fuse blown. But, when I went to replace the fuse, it sparks (even without the key in ignition) and...

the wire is shorted to ground or something in the radio. if you can pull the radio and put the fuse in. if the fuse doesn't blow the radio is bad, if it does blow then the wire is touching the ground/metal body somewhere. you have to trace it back. as far as the windows go they are on a circuit breaker and not part of the radio. and circuit breakers can fail

Radio quit working

does your system have power amplifier aside from your built in amp on radio? if yes, disconnect all supply then put new fuse. try this time, should not blow the fuse. then one by one, connect the supply fo your radio only, if ok, then next is the amplifier, if it blow the fuse, your power amplifier has an issue.

Tilt steering doesnt work blows fuses

The wire that supplies a live to your radio, runs from ignition down the steering column. You probably have a chafed wire along that loom, as you tilt the steering, the wire grounds so the accessories fuse/radio fuse blows. Remove the panel under the steering column and/or the shroud around the column and examine the wiring.
