How do I fix the display on my radio on my nissan titan half the display is gone

if you only have half of your display, you may have to buy a new display for that unit if they still make that make and model, no days with how cheap radios are its cheaper to buy a new one that buying service manual, parts manual, cost to repair { removal and installation, re-install} the new unit, unless you are doing all the work your self, finding the part, ordering the part, shipping and handling, removal and repair, re-install test equipment, and than few hours, days, or months some thing else goes wrong with the radio, if you got a new one it would be under warrenty

Clock fuse radio ele mirrors dvd player keeps blowing kia sedona

Same thing happened to me. My DVD player stopped working and the 15A fuse for Power 1 kept blowing. Turns out that there was a little metal ring that had fallen into my powerpoint connection on the dash. It was shorting out my DVD player. Removed the ring, installed a new fuse and DVD player is back up and running.

Can a new car radio kill the battery?

Yes and that was due to bad installation. I have had 3 car stereos installed on my 98 RAV4 through Best Buy and never had battery problems. I even had 2 amps installed as well but the installers had to make me buy this 200-dollar thing that would not drain the battery.

If you are getting a drain through the radio's power supply it could eventually drain down the battery if it was improperly installed, I would pull the fuse for the radio and see if the drain continues, if the drain does not stop there is another short somewhere. To learn more :

1993 mercury cougar radio blows when insalled pleeeeze help

Make sure your ground wire at the car did not get fried to a hot wire. It may have fire. That is the only reasonable thing it could be if it is blowing radios...

1993 mercury cougar radio blows when insalled pleeeeze help

Some vehicles will not support aftermarket radios. The original radio wiring supports some functions of the vehicle, example being an alarm, interior lights, etc. It is possible one of the circuits has a blown fuse, and the radio is not compatible with your car.

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.
