1993 dodge dakota 2wd 318 v8. My dome light and radio went at the same time i checked the interior fuse. Number 12 rwd fuse 10. Was not burned out what else can i check?

The fuse you need to replace it under the hood (drivers side black box) not inside. Check the owner's manual. I know this from my own 93 blowing the same fuse, I had a more powerful aftermarket radio and the amp draw was much higher than the stock radio, I installed a 5 amp larger fuse, I think it was a 20 amp, the original was a 15 amp I think.

I have a 2001 Hyundai sonata my brother took out the factory radio and installed a cd player now my dash lights wont work and it keeps burning out a fuse

Pull the radio and swap the black and brown wire from the car harness to the radio. brown is power to lights, black is ground. Don't let your brother wire in any thing else.

I tried to install a audio sytem to my 2000 Buick Century, but everytime I did, it burned my fuel pump. Why would it do this? Please help.

You may have a short in your wire harness. always disconnect the battery when changing or working on electrical accessories in you car. two options. take you car to have the radio replaced professionally or rewire the radio power to run off the fuse panel fuse for the radio, eleminating the direct plastic plug in. make sure you get the positive + negative - correct and you should be ok.

Radio stopped working

Check to make sure your Volume is turned off. you did not say if the POWER is not there.

Check to see if you burned out a fuse

Test the Radio with applying power, if you apply power and it still does not work, then you are going to install a new aftermarket Radio and be grateful for it later.

Some Radio's have a FUSE inside, you could have also an Inline Fuse.. Check the Power at the Fusebox FIRST... then work your way to the Radio.

It could be a 1 minute fix

Why did my radio and my cig. lighter stopped working?

I wish I had a dollar for every time I have heard "All fuses are OK" or "I already checked the fuse" or "I know it's not the fuse"....I'd be a rich man!

When cigarette lighters quit working, 99% of the time the fuse is blown because someting got plugged into it like a defective phone charger. The other 1% of the time, it is because the lighter element is burned out or somebody essed with the wires to the cigarette lighter trying to install some kind of aftermarket equipment.

Humor me and check Fuse #9 (20 Amp) in the passenger side fuse and relay box.

What fuse controls the radio and ac/heating in a 2002 Beetle?

A/C is protected by fuse on battery fuse block under black cover on top of battery.

These 30amp GREEN fuses burn out the holder. Check for burn and melting . Jumper Battery RED to individual small RED wires with another '' in line fuse '' of 30 Amp...obtainable from most car parts stores.

Radio has fuse in rear.

No light on dashboard when i turn the headlights.problem occur after a instalation of a new radio sny

Below is the color code for your factory radio wires.
The problem you have is that the red wire with the black stripe has likely been shorted and the fuse burned. Take the radio out and find that wire. Make sure it is not being used and tape the end with electrical tape. If that wire was used to power the radio, change the radio power to use the yellow wire with the red stripe. Also make sure the red wire isn't getting pinched when you reinstall the radio. Find and replace the burned fuse and you should be OK. Please get back to me if you have more questions.

My husband installed a radio now the dash board lights are not working 1993 chevy lumina

One of the wires to the factory radio is common to the dash lights. Perhaps he accidentally connected that wire to the wrong place. Or, perhaps it got shorted during the installation. Check for a burned fuse. If that isn't it, I would take the radio out and relook at the installation instructions for the radio.
