Some factory radios are designed to shut down if power is removed from them - like when they are stolen. This feature is the anti-theft device for the radio. Most seasoned thieves know it is going to be a hassle to get it turned back on again.
Contact your dealer's service manager and ask how to go about getting the radio turned back on again. Explain it exactly as you did here. You may have to pay to re-activate it - so be prepared.
Go to your local auto store and get the Hanes auto manual for this care and they should have a wiring schematic for you to follow also you can look your new stereo up on the web and find out what each colored wire goes to what!!! Good luck
Hi, this is very common. The factory wiring harness has an illumination wire that is not used by the aftermarket stereo. This wire must be taped off to prevent shorting. The fuse is probably burned. Because your car is foreign, I cannot access the wire colors or fuse numbers. The fuse in question is usually labeled "tail". See if you can find and replace that fuse. If it burns again when the lights are turned on, you will have to pull the stereo out and find the illumination wire. Make sure any unused wires are isolated individually with electrical tape.
put back the factory stereo if the car works then you have a model that depends on that head unite you will need to use a factory stereo by pass harness to solve this problem when you install you after market unite.this is a common issue with newer factory stereo's if putting back your factory stereo does not fix this then check all your fuse's generly there are more then one fuse box in newer cars
Take a Flashlight and hold it Behind the Fuses to make them Easier to See. This way you can check them all and Replace the Bad Ones. If it is not a Fuse, The Backlighting on the Stereo is Probably out and there is no way to fix this once they stop Working aside of Buying a New Head Unit or Aftermarket Stereo. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!
I have had this problem intermittently since I purchased the vehicle in 2004... the dealer could not fix but showed me that there is a relay that you can pull and re-install. It's under the hood and must be done with the ignition and lights off. Pull the relay, wait 10 secs and re-install and pblm goes away. If you are standing in front of the vehicle there is a relay box on your right/vehicle left. The relay is located in the lower left-had corner of this box. Not a permanent fix, and in my experience the problem goes away when the vehicle is parked for an hour or so but if you have a long drive and want to use the radio, this 60-second fix is worth knowing...
