There is one fuse in fuse panel, then, there is a fuse on the back of the cd deck. You can test power to the cd player wiring with a voltmeter. The red wire is for ignition switch power, the yellow is direct battery power for memory

It wont turn on, how do i tell if its no good or just a fuse?

A blown fuse is more likely. Most cars have two fuses in the vehicle fuse box that can supply power to the stereo, and there's another fuse built into the back of the stereo unit itself. It's not uncommon for one or more of these fuses to blow when the battery is changed.

My battery died, i replaced the battery and now the radio is on standby and i am unable to get it to work

Try checking all of the fuses in your vehicle. You should have two fuse boxes, one in the engine compartment and another under the dash or in a kick panel inside the vehicle.

84 Camaro with 86 engine 305, manual 5-speed, no voltage, won't hold a charge, gauges act crazy, runs rough and dies while driving

Hi! supafuzzy
After recharging the battery, load test, a bad battery dirty terminal could be a problem. With the engine running what is the Voltage at the alternator and battery. It should have 13.4 to 13.8 Volts, at both locations. R&R Alternator. This should be the voltages at the fuse pannel. The HEI ignition needs good voltage for a hot spark. Other things to check if alternator and fuse panel have good voltage, Ignition Switch, Fuse Panel, Connections at Distributor.

It doesnt work after battery when dead in car.. i have no remote....i got it with the car and it worked great, now it just open up and nothing....

What has most likely happened is the when the car died it was probably jumped off. Anytime a vehicle is jumped off, especially off a much larger vehicle, a "jump" of voltage is sent throughout the vehicle also known as a surge. The surge travels through the vehicle's electrical system and sometimes blows bulbs, fuses and relays. The back of your radio should have a fuse check it because It's probably blown. If the fuse is good refer to your vehicle manual to locate the fuse panel and find the radio fuse it might be blown. Hope this helps

No electric after turning key to start

im working on one of those right now ther are two inline fuses on the batt side, driver side they go to the firewall conector they should have a gray strip around them saying fusible link. test on conector side for 12v of both wires that will tell you if the link is bad sounds like the problem if no power is going inside to your fuse panle fusible links can look good if they havne melted through the insulation and still be bad the other thing is if you do have bad fusible links ther is a reason for it, most likley power to ground eather in chassis harnes or engine harnes being a coachman it could be anywhere

Kenwood KDC-MP438U acts as if there is no power to it,dead nothin

The speaker wires are very sensitive. You need to make sure that they are not grounding out. Once the unit senses this it will shut off. Pull the plug out of the back and start over.

Will not start

bad silonoid on starter
the actual cable on starter is bad even though you replaced the positive battery connector the whole cable could be bad
also your new battery might not be a heat battery example= a battery that cannot handle heat and will die on you this indicates a dead cell in battery
bad alternator not charging battery
bad ignition coil
scorched spark plug wiring
dead cell in battery even though the battery can show good it can still be bad
battery's these days are usually refurbished battery's practically every one recycles batterys so its a chance that you got a bad battery try a jump then while vehicle running disconnect the positive post of battery if vehicle dies its the alternator

i myself had to do a battery swap 4 times before i got a refurbished battery without a dead cell this something that is a pain but once you get a good battery then everything should work
