It may be that there is a problem with the power supply to the radio on the inside of the radio, id try replacing the radio first.

Amp fuse 30a keep blowing


You have possibly melted a couple of wires together along the radio circuit. Also the radio unit itself has 1 or more protection fuses actually inside the unit that have blown, usually at back of unit in little bay near the wire clusters.
Check your relays too, a blow out through jump starting can do all sorts of little burn-outs.

My 06 Audi a4 had a blown 20amp fuse for the radio. There was a lot of feedback noise coming through the speakers even with the radio off. I've replaced the fuse, so now the background noise is gone, but...


Check that power is actually getting to the radio. A cheap multimeter will do the trick. Connect the red tester to the power supply and the black to any earth (-ve). The body of the car is earthed so any bolt into the body will do.

Check that the radio doesn't have its own inline fuse which could also have blown.

It takes quite a substantial fault to blow a 20 amp fuse so take care, there may well be a dead short somewhere.

Be sure to check fuses. You may have a blown fuse. If have the owner's manual, check for fuse block diagram and check for one listed as radio. If fuse is at fault, may have loose wire that caused it to blow.

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.
