    Here is a link to the wiring diagram of the stereo/radio system (if your model uses the JBL). At the top would be the fuses needed. You can determine which fuse you are removing that apparently resets the system and thereafter trace to where it goes.

NO power to the radio or clock


Did you actually check the radio plug for power, or does the display just not illuminate? I ask because this radio has a little bulb inside that burns out that illuminates the clock, and radio station. You can confirm this by trying to use the radio normally, and trying to 'seek' a station. If you can get it to tune in, it is definitely the bulb. Another way is to shine a nice bright flashlight into the clock face. You should be able to see the stations and clock, that at least will tell you that the radio is working. - Hope this helps =)

Radio, CD player, Sync, clock stopped working on my 2008 Ford Explorer


Most likely a fuse. If your fuse box is labeled it will say radio under the fuse. If its not check your owners manual for location of fuse box and radio fuse.

1996 nissan maxima ever since I put in a new battery the radio and clock do not work. checked fuses all are fine.


Hi,

If this is still the factory head unit then you need to reenter the security code so that it will operate again.
As for the clock, you may have a faulty connector or blown back light bulb. The clock maybe working but you cant see it as the backlighting is not working.

Thanks

I have a 2004 ford focus the radio and clock stopped working i checked the fuses not blown what else could be the problem


Sometimes the radio has its own fuse. If the radio is aftermarket, check the wiring in the back of the radio to see if there is an in-line fuse holder.

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 stops working. Why does the fuse keep


First is that the stock a radio. If it's an aftermarket disconnect any amplifiers, also if there's a power antenna disconnect that sometimes they become jammed. If you still blown fuses disconnect the radio and check to see if it's still blowing fuses. If not get a wiring diagram and find out what other things are on at circuit. It's a simple process of elimination. Good luck with that.

Clock doesn't work. I put in an after market radio


Did the clock stop working immediately after the radio install? If so then it sounds like a fuse may have blown. If not then it is most likely a clock issue. I have 4runner clock removal instructions at my website: www.autoclockrepair.com
