Car radio not working

Just bought an old Peugeot with the above unit installed, both the CD and radio were working until Sunday. CD still works but there are no radio stations any more. The display reads tuner but none of the previous pre-sets are there and the seek buttons to the right of the unit refuse to hunt for anything. Had a play with all the buttons (sorry!) but nothing at all on the radio side of things, not even travel news etc. Any ideas?

Take the front panel off. There is a reset button, bpress it with a pen or other pointy object and it will work again.

Re: Car radio not working

Sound like you need the manual to this radio, I would have said that there are components inside that go bad that will cause a radio not to light up in the display area. But if you radio is saying tuner, and maybe cd then it would be the selector button that has a problem. Or no antenna is hooked up or come apart.

You should check all the connections especially the radio for dust, rust, or any dirt. If that doesn't work then you need some kind of radio adapter to improve you signal.

Hi I have a JVC KD-G801 car cd player/radio. Today a mechanic uninstalled it from a car I have which I will be selling and he installed into a newer Peugeot 306 I bought at the weekend. The stereo is...

Yes... the wire designated for constant power which powers the clock and some of the lessor memory functions is disconnected.
I would remove the radio and look for the lead that is disconnected and have a constant power lead attached to it to cure this issue.
Have the mechanic who did it the first time do it.. as it was already paid for him to do so in the first place...

If it is a stock radio, you will have to phone your Peugeot dealer and give them your VIN or chassis number. They will then track your number through your Chassis number

Installing CD Player in Peugeot 206

Hi dont know if anyone reads this still. First the finger tip control you have to rewire it into the new cd player with a Autoleads PC99-X26 - Peugeot 206 plus connection to your make of radio. Also the wireing problem some times is down to the red and yellow wires being the wrong way round swap them over and this should solve this.
