In line fuses are located in a plastic tube on the power wire behindthe radio. Aftermarket radios usualy have a small fuse/s pushed into the back of the unit itself.

I would check and see if you need to replace a blown fuse. You could disconnect the battery temporarily to reset the radio. You may have to have your radio repaired or replaced by a professional.

When I jumped my batterie i accidently reversed the negative and posotive after, the radio stopped working I checked fuse, fuse was ok what do i check now

There is usually more than one fuse for the radio.

in the instrument panel fuse block there will be an AUDIO fuse and an AV fuse. If the radio has an amp there will be an AMP fuse in the under hood fuse block.

If all three of those are good let me know and I'll try to help you further.

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

I just changed my battery in my 1999 Kia Sportage ,radio is on 1 station,nothing will change except vol.

pull the radio back up fuse-reset the radio (has to be left for at least 10 seconds) then plug back in-if issue still present requires new unit.
beleive clarion has the contract for kia/hyundia audio. anyways aftermarket unit maybe cheaper-have a proffesional install it for the 20 bucks it gives you peace of mind and there liability.
