It could be the radio itself... the ford radio is famous for going out or shorting out. unfortually i believe a new radio is around $400 so the best thing to do is put a CD player from an elctronic store such as Best buy or somewhere like that.

1998 ford explorer radio does'nt work switch on sterrein wheel broke.how to fix it ?no power to the radio


You can't turn it on by the switch on the radio ? Nothing showing on the radio display ? If not check these fuses
Blown central junction box (CJB) Fuse 1 (7.5A), Fuse 20 (7.5A), Fuse 28 (7.5A), and Fuse 29 (25A) . The switch on the steering wheel should not stop the radio from being turned on at the radio !

My radio will not turn on in my 2008 ford escape. I checked all the fuses and disconnected the battery for an hour and radio still wont come on. The clock doesn't even display.


by disconnecting the battery you have activated the anti-theft system in the radio
you will now need a code and insert it in the radio before it will operate again

The car won't start; lights, ac, radio etc come on but car won't turn over or even click; checked battery cables; put different battery in; still won't start


Check the starter and the starter relay or fuse. A client of mines car was doing the same thing, it ended up being two issues, the starter not working anymore, and a relay that was bad. If I am not mistaken everything should be labeled in the fuse box under the hood and will tell you where the fuse/ relay is for your vehicle

Where is the fuse for the radio on ford escort 2001


The radio fuse is on the same fuse as the mirrows.
What I do is turn the key on and just check all the fuses it only takes 3 or 4 minutes and even if you had the manual right there it would take at least 5 minutes to look it up.

My car radio push button switch is broke and the radio stays on unless the car is shut off will this drain the battery . If so is there a fuse for the radio that can be taken out?


As long as it goes off when you switch off the engine, it won`t drain the battery. If it stays on, it means it it is connected directly from the battery and yes.. it will drain it.

Radio and electric windows not working


Yes, it is most likely a fuse issue. Two things going out at the same time usually leads to the fuse block.
The radio and the clock are on two separate fuses. The clock runs on the constant power (yellow) wire to the radio... and the radio itself runs on the red Ign./accessory wire.
pull the fuse cover off and look on the sticker on the cover for the radio fuse and check it. I'm betting it is burned out.
