Check the inline power fuse first/or replace it! If that does'nt work then next make sure the radio is in the operating possition on the switches labeled>cb/pa< to cb mode. If this does'nt work then you may have a wire from your power plug inside the radio broken loose or a blown diode. If in fact the wire is connected inside the radio the diode would be my next guess. This happens when the polarity of the radio is reversed(hooked up backwards). This can be fixed relativley easy at your local radio shop for about 30$. Good Luck.

Car wont start,radio wont work but lights work


I agree with Jerry - sound like perhaps your ECM fuse is blown which would prevent your car brains from working. Take off the cover, invest in a tiny fuse puller - you can see the break in the "U" shaped metal or black splat if the fuse cut-loose. Also, make sure you don't have anything plugged-into your cigarette/power outlet(s) and after checking/replacing fuses, retry restarting your car. Also, what red light is on - the two zig-zag lighting bolts, or all/some of your lights?

My 1993 Jaguar XJ6 wont turn over..the lights on the dashboard wont come on but the radio works and all the lights in the car..someone help please.


I recommend you have your battery tested. The starter requires MUCH more power than the radio does. You could also see if the car starts with a jump start. Also, as a general rule, a battery is only good for 3-4 years so if it is older than that it wants to be replaced anyhow : )

Good luck!!!

I disconnected the negative battery cable, and reconnectd it to fix check engine light, now my aux 2 wont show up on my radio dial, so my sattelite radio wont work


when you disconnected the power from the radio you lost your presets radios have two power lines one is primary and is used to power everything while on the other is a remote power line and is only used to keep clock and presets so what you going to have to do is ind your user manual and reconfigure the radio to accept the satellite radio on the second aux input


hope this helped

Rear-window defogger wont work and radio cuts off when u put on


Sounds like a dead short. Disconnect the power to the radio and try the rear defog. Then to determine if it is the radio or the hater, disconnect the heater and put power to the radio. Another simple test is to, at night have the head lights on, turn the radio on see how much the lights dim. Then with the radio off, turn the rear defog on. Then try both. IF either one makes the head lights dim and not recover after a minute or so that devise is the shorted component. Check grounds on the radio and the heater.

Radio wont hol memory, dome light wont work when key switch off, and All lock wont unlock doors unless key in on.


Probably a fuse. You radio keeps it's memory using a constant power wire which is probably interlinked with the dome light, door locks, etc. Check fuses under the dash as well as under the hood for any blown fuses. Look for fuses labeled with your listed problems of things that don't work.
