I've double checked everything and the atenna cable is firmly connected, but get no radio reception still. The power atenna fuse cable is not connected to anything. eveything else works DVD and CD, but no radio
Put a wire in the antenna hole while radio is on if you get some reception then you know its your antenna do you have sirius if you do it sometimes it runs through your antenna if you dont then check your antenna wire where it connects to the antenna good luck.....

hello there ,firstly to rectify the power source remove front panel using a multimetre connect (red) positive to pin 1 this is the top pin as you look at the front panel connect (black) negative probe to the 3rd pin and see is there power registering ,if no power is found place front panel back on radio ,remove power block from back of stereo look for the power source wires red/black you will see the pins for these in block test with metre ,make sure while your testing for power the ignition is turned on at all times ,if you are not getting power here there is a faulty wire or the main fuse for radio,has blown this can be located either on the driverside neath the steering column or passenger side check all these fuses aswell ,another thing you could try if all fails try another radio that you know is working this will aliminate power problems ,hope you get it working let me goodluck
Double check your speaker connections. Make sure + goes to plus and - to minus (phase) and make sure all are grounded properly. Is there an amp possibly in line? If so, make sure connections are good there also make sure powered up (it happens to all of us)
First of all have you connected a good antennae. Please double check this out if the antennae cable is shorting with the body ground. If possible use an external antennae wired to the set. If this wont help, then we have definately an issue within the front end of the radio section. Check within the set after putting the mode to Radio for any detecction of EMI. Use a signal injector if you can to trace the signal back from the preamp audio to the radio IF. If you get a response you might have a failed IF processor. Replace if you are able to do so.Initially fix the frequency to the most powerful channel and shake wires or connectors to get a reception. if so solder the area in question.You could also put the Radio on for some time to check for any capacitor electrolitics that have reduced in life/value. I hope this helps. Good day
Check your connections on the antenna again. Am usually gets decent reception. sounds like your antenna connection isnt fully connected either at the stereo connection or at the actual antenna connection.
When you said inline fuse I get the idea that this is not the original radio. Do you have power on the inline fuse? The 50 amp fuse you checked is a bit much for a radio. There may be a smaller fuse in another fuse area of what car type you have. If you do not have power at the inline fuse find some where you do have power (12vdc) and connect to it. If you have power at the in line fuse check the ground wire. If you have a test light or someway of checking for power test all fuses everywhere. If you have a fuse location guide for this vehicle look for the fuse for radio. If it was a add on or after market radio they probably caught power from the original source That is fused under the dash.
When I hook up an amp I put the power wire to the battery,the ground to a suitable chasis ground,and the remote wire I hook up to a switched 12 volt in the fuse block.It's usually marked ign on the fuse block. If you have a test light you can see which one is hot when you turn the key on.As far as the radio not coming on there should be a fuse in line on the red wire and dont forget the one under dash also.Some radios have a reset button on them somewhere you might see if yours does.
Hi. You need to check a few things.
make sure you have power on both the red and yellow wire with the key one. If only one has power the radio will not work.
also make sure that you have a good ground connection on the black wire..
if nothing works yes you probhably have a bad radio. the dual brand radios are notorious for poor solder connections on the mainboard due to the way they build thier cheap circuit boards..
