Original cd player won't turn on

First Check the fuses. There are two (or three) that run the radio

1 - holds the settings when truck is off (7.5A Acc) - probably not this one, cuz if it fails, lotsa stuff won't work.

2 - turns radio on when key comes on (10A Radio No1) - Check it with a meter, not your eye, the filaments are very fine.

(If you have the JBL system) (30A Radio No2 runs the amp/ subwoofer)

If these are both OK, and you're still having trouble, post back, you may need to remove the radio.......

Assuming the engine is not locked up, can you crank it in neutral ?
There is a neutral safety switch in the circuit that could have failed.
There are also two relays in the circuit that would need to be checked.

Radio stopped working, won't turn on

There are 2 power supplies for the radio, one constant, one ignition switched. If either one is out then the radio will not work. Did anything else quit working at the same time? In all probabilities the radio is dead and you will need to replace it.

2002 Honda Odyssey Trying to hard wire a radar to go off with key

The radio fuse has power until the key is removed.. Try and locate the air conditioning or engine fuse, both these will lose power when the ign key is removed..if all else fails, use a 12volt test probe to check each fuse in turn until you locate one which is switched by the key..

My Honda Accord 1995 radio will not turn on. I have checked all appropriate fuses both in the interior and under-bonet fuse boxes and they are all good. The CD stacker still gets power so that the disk...

You have to remove the radio and check the power going into the radio to make sure it is getting power. There is an internal radio fuse which you can't check without taking the radio apart. Likely the source is the radio. Checking for current to the radio will determine if the source is the radio or not. If radio does not power up, antenna will not rise.

The car dash probably lights the radio dial so that it will dim down with the dash light dimmer. The radio light may still be switched on and off by the radio switch but its a separate circuit. Check the fuse for the circuit that powers the radio itself. It should have its own fuse. Its likely that the radio has failed and will have to be removed and checked on a bench but check the fuse and check the power and antenna connectors in the back of the radio as these sometimes come loose from vibration. Always replace a fuse with one of the exact same amperage, voltage rating, and time delay if any as the original. If a fuse is blown the cause may be internal to the radio or it may be a problem with the car wiring to the radio. If blown check the wiring leading to the radio for worn insulation near sharp edges in the dash.

Geo tracker lights and radio not working

power loss.
any good car elect. tech find this pronto.
just takes a volt meter to find the voltage drop point.

top fails:
1: corroded fuse box on right front finder (under fuse box)
2: did you say it kills motor too. cant figure above.

what about heater fan, it uses tons of current.
as does HL followed by tails.

20amps, 15amps and 5amps respectively

you have resistance some where.
and load , kills the voltage .

for me.
check battery voltage , when it dims out.
then of ok 12.5v is ok key on,not started.
then check voltages at a right fender , fuse panel
all points there, 12.5vdc , same as battery v.
if OK
check voltage at the fuse above right knee
with load full, hl, fan, brakes, just key on.

now you know what circuit is fail ing by now.

report back with this facts.
