Question about Pioneer DEH-1700 CD Player
I've had the DEH-1700 for a while now. However, yesterday my battery was dead and had to jump start the car using start cables. Since then the radio won't work at all. I'm not sure if the problem is connected to the battery being dead. I have checked the fuse and this is still OK. I would like to take the radio out to check it but don't have the extraction keys (I bought the car second-hand and they didn't come with it). Any simple solutions to removing the radio without the keys and what problems should I check for once removed?
Thanks in advance,
Sorry it took so long to get back on this. I just moved from Detroit to San Antonio and am still getting sorted out.
You can use any long slim metal to get the radio out. Something like a couple of butter knives are about the right size. You push one in on each side of the radio between the radio and the sleeve that holds the radio. Push them in as far as they will go near the middle part of the radio. Once they are all the way in they should release the catches that hold the radio in place, then just pull the radio out. The radio may also have a fuse right at the connector for the plug. It will be a plastic blade fuse normally a red one (10 amps) so check that as well. It plugs right into the radio and is part of the jack that the harness plugs into.
Let me know if you need any more help.
