Look underneath the dash area under the steering wheel. Most cars have a fuse panel there. There may also be one under the hood near the battery.

Good luck

I was installing an amp for my subs and forgot to disconnect the remote wire I had tapped into the deck. My son pulled the wire n it hit metal and Tue stereo shut down. Now it has no power to Tue stereo. ...

There should be a fuse on the radio. If not check any fuses inside the vehicle; normally by the driver kick area. If this doesn't help, I guess you know the rest.

My clarion db135 car stereo died.......I have a 1990 Dodge dakota ex-cab truck and looking at the fuse panel, there is not a 10A fuse in the spot where the "radio" is located? Is there a fuse...

I'm sure they used a wiring harness, which gets power from the appropriate source. One of the things you might check is the fuse on the back of the radio. There is usually one there. What caused it to blow would be another question. Happy Hunting

Changed battery then radio will not work

Most likely the fuse for the radio is blown. If the radio is factory, check the interior fuse box (normally located on the lower drivers side of the dash) for any blown fuses. Normally the fuse that will blow will say something like "Radio", "Audio", "Interior", or "Cig" near them. If the radio is aftermarket, check the fuses noted above and also check for a blown fuse located on the rear of the radio (Usually next to, or on the main power harness).

Fitting a Kenwood car stereo to a 2003 Toyota Hilux ute, all works well until aerial lead plugged in, then immediately the fuse blows that feeds park lights, dash lights, instruments etc. Car stereo works...

The vehicle chassis ground or negative is opposite to the stereo. The aerial is vehicle chassis ground (earth), when touched to stereo results in direct short. If the Hilux is positive ( + ) chassis (earth) and the stereo is negaitive ( - ) ground, there is the short. If this is the problem, either replace with a compatable stereo or compatable vehicle.

Cant locate my radios fuse

If you tell me what kind of radio it is, make and model, I may be able to help you better. You can find that information on the display for many radios, and on the bottom or back of the radio for others. Too much information is always better than too little information.

Many car stereos have the fuse right in line with the power wires (yellow and red, sometimes the black ground wire) coming from the harness on the back of the radio. It is rare that a radio has a power fuse on the inside of the radio. Some pioneers have a RCA ground fuse on the board inside the radio which require a technician to replace.

Some radios have a fuse right on the connector jack for the wiring harness on the back of the radio.

If the radio is completely dead, it is a possibility that the fuse has blown. But a new question then comes up. Why did the fuse blow?

Sometimes it can happen from playing the radio too loud, but even then, the fuse should not blow. But it is possible. Sometimes it is a shorted speaker, a bad amp IC, or another shorted component.

If you find the fuse make sure that you replace it with the same type and ratings. Most car radios use a blade fuse. Some have the glass tube type when they are inline with the power wires.
Once again, if I know what kind of radio it is, I may be able to tell you just what type of fuse to use, not all radios use the same fuses.

If you replace the fuse and it blows again, you really should take it in for service.

If your radio is not dead, the fuse is not a likely problem.

I hope this helps and let me know if you need any more help.
