    I have the same problem. Just boosted the battery on a stock system. Figured it had something to do with the dead battery, but thought maybe it was a fuse. What do you think?

SOURCE: 03 vibe cd player will not respond

I blew a fuse controlling the radio, charging system, turn signals, heater fan, ,etc..this ran down my battery.

When I replaced the fuse, the CD player would not respond, but the radio worked.

I disconnected the battery for over 30 seconds, hooked it back up, and the time reset on the radio to 12:00 and the CD player works again.

Sounds very much like two possibles a short in the fuse box to the non working parts or your battery went dead and was recharged and you did not reset these items. As what U mention all sound like the equipment that needs to be reset when you change a battery or it goes dead.

My Honda, CRV 2006 stalled, I was back in business after getting a boost but now radio/CD is not working. Please help.


If your battery was completely dead the car has to be reset. Look in your owners manual and see if there is something about resetting certain functions if you have a dead battery. You might need the code for the radio/CD player to get it working again. A dealer can provide you with it, but you will need positive ID that you are the owner of the car.

2005 Dodge Caravan radio and clock is dead


check the cigerette lighter or power socket fuse. then check them all because some fuses feed other fuse and are not labeled as such. there under the hood and there is one that may have a plastic cage around it its the one that the dealer personel are supposed to push down when taking delivery of vehichle it turns all that stuff of so battery wont go dead in the stock yards, it may have popped from the cig lighter or power port
