Question about Car Audio & Video
Mt car radio is not working. The bass and treble lights blink but no music or power to the deck and cd changer. WHY???
The lights may work because the might be tied in with your parking lights, allowing them to illuminate at night for visibility. First thing's first, did you check the fuses in the fuse panel? Check them all since cars have circuits mixed around and the radio is no exception. OK since all the fuses are good, you'll have to pull out the radio and unplug it from the harness. You will have to use a multimeter which you can get anywhere (wal-mart, etc). Set the meter to DC, put the probe on a bare piece of metal in the radio cavity and use the red probe on the harness. Scout the web for a diagram of your car's harness to know what to meter. Now since everything there is ok, you will have to dig a hole and throw the radio into it because the radio is dead. A new one can be bought for as little as $100. You will need a trim kit to fit it into the weird hole from the the radio and a wiring harness as well to make it match up to your car's harness. Both can be bought on e-bay for cheap. Actually the radio can too.
