    are you using connection loomes or stripped wires?

    Theres more than 1 fuse for the radio in most newer cars.

    One for the ignition (switched power) and 1 for constant power (memory)

    Check your owners manual for the location of BOTH fuses.

    Sounds as if you are installing a radio with a factory amplifier. If that is the case - the amplifier would have recieved a signal from your radio and blown its fuse as well.

    If your vehicle has a factory amplifier - it will need to be bypassed to operate properly. Reply with a make/model/yr, and i can help you further.

If you've used the loome plugged into the car check that the wires line up and the car has enough wires most new head units have 6 wires while most older cars only have 5 therefore you need to bypass the stereos ignition wire by joining it to the live wire and reconnecting all other wires as they would on the loome

My car won't send power to my radio. I took the

Out of curiousity did you check your fuse? In installing one a while ago I created a short and had no power a simple fuse replacement and all was good?

The other one is if you made cuts in the wire did you make sure the right connections were made?

May seem simple and if you already checked apologies for mentioning it however, I have found sometimes that we pass the simple solutions trying to make it more complicated than what it is.

Stock radio works but no sound tested speakers and they work what could it be?

The stock harness was butchered, possibly to allow the separate amplifier to be bypassed. My guess is that the stock amplifier is still in place but not connected to the radio.

How do I reset Change oil light

The reason that you can't get the pressing pedal three times to work is because you took out the stock radio. When you take out the stock radio you mess with its programing abilities. I hope you kept the stock radio because if you ever need work done to your car that involves programing certain things like your cluster you will need your stock radio back in it for it to work

I took the stock radio out and installed an after market CD player and now the AC blows hot air please help

You probably accidentally pulled a vacuum hose off behind the radio. I have a ranger and did that with my truck putting in a radio.

Clock doesn't work. I put in an after market radio

Check your instrument panel fuses. #18 AC it controls your clock, antenna, radio, and power rear view mirror. If the fuse is OK then it is most likely an internal failure in the clock. I offer an affordable repair service and have the removal instructions. Check out

Clock doesn't work. I put in an after market radio

Did the clock stop working immediately after the radio install? If so then it sounds like a fuse may have blown. If not then it is most likely a clock issue. I have 4runner clock removal instructions at my website:

I have a 1997 Acura 3.0cl and i just took out after market radio and am trying to put stock radio back in. I need a code.....?

The only place to get the antitheft code is from your Honda dealer. This keeps crooks from stealing and selling radios! Just go to the Honda dealer service department, in person, and have the VIN number of your Honda. They can look up your radio code and get you back up and running...!

How to remove '0 lx-470 radio

Remove wood console panel using 2 flathead screwdrives but be careful not to crack wood (be patient). Pry on the edges evenly and you'll notice it pop out. Once removed there should be several 10mm screws exposed. Remove them and have a box handy to put the screws and bolts in so you don't lose them. Pull out radio and unplug wire harness. I have an after market DVD monitor and DVD player in my LX470. I like it much better than the stock radio. You should consider after market it's much cheaper than the Nakamichi radio and easier to replace in the future.

Radio,AC - Problems...

The air bag light is flashing, because you unplugged the "pass. air bag indicator " light. You will need to go to dealer to have it erased. As far as the radio and a/c not coming on, did you leave something unplugged ?? or did you pinch a wire by accident causing fuse/fusible link to blow?? check fusible links in IPDM box. which is right by the ECM/computer next to the washer bottle top.
