TO see if the fuse has blown, you'll need to fund the fuse panel it's located in. The radio fuse is normally in the panel inside the car, below the dashboard near the drivers leg left leg just infront of the door. It's probaby just above the hood release. On the back of the cover to the fuse panel (it slides off) there is a diagram of the fuses. Locatee the radio fuse and remove it. To do this you can use a pair of pliers, but it's better ot use a fuse puller. Inside the fuse panel in the engine campartment there is a fuse puller tool. It's a little white, yellow or green plastic tool.

The fuse has 2 metal prongs and a transparents plastic body. You can see insince the middle of the plastic body that there is a thin metal wire. IF the wire is continous and unbroken (it's normally curved or wavy) it's good. If in the middle the wire has melted and there is a gap, the fuse is blown. You can replace it with a fuse of the same size and current rating (usually the same color). Spares are located in the fuse panel in the engine compartment, or you can buy them at the Home Depot electrical department.

Radio,clock cigarette lighter


lighter will most probably be on its own fuse, which in your case is blown.
radio and clock will probably be on the same fuse, which has blown.
Its important to remember that most radios have their own fuse which is found at the back of the radio.(radio will have to be removed) but try the easy fuse first (in the fuse panel

replace the bulb in the overhead light. the light cover should just pull off (may be a small clip to free it, flathead screwdriver )

Tip

DISCONNECTING YOUR BATTERY without losing the RADIO CODE


I constantly read frequent requests for RADIO CODES referring to the disconnection of battery power ( whether its for changing the battery, etc.) and the radio is now INOP. Here is a simple way to save radio codes, radio stations, clock time and computer settings. Purchase from an auto parts dealer, a 9 volt battery powered lighter socket connector. Plug into lighter, do your battery work, After work is completed, disconnect, and radio will work as before. Unit will cost less than 20.00 and well worth it.

Radio, clock, cigarette lighters not working


all on the same circuit. radio has two power supplys, one when the key on, and one all the time. aftermarket decks draw alot more than factory and this circuit may not be able to handle the extra load. look in owners manual and look in engine and interior fuse panels. it may say memory,clock,ecm keep alive etc. if need be check them all one is failed. now as for the engine light, most obdII vehicles use this circuit to keep computer memory alive... it will set a code for voltage lost. if you know your not overloaded or have a short, then its safe to go up to next size fuse,2.5 or 5 amp heavier. but thats it. if keeps happening you have a short or you may have to run a dedicated feed circuit for the deck. good luck youll find it

Radio does not turn on. the clock shows,the light


The memory wire of the radio,(the power for the clock and channel settings) is usually connected to the same circuit as the cigarette lighter. (there is a seperate fuse for radio) Check your cigarette lighter socket for damage or dirt, etc. could be causing the memory fuse to blow. Also check your cig lighter accesories (like cell phone chargers,etc.)

P.S. The backlight is also a seperate circuit (connected to interior light/parking light circuit)
