    I have a factory radio (2000 Mountaineer) that blew when hard wiring a sirius. The clock and the display still work, but the radio won't turn on. I checked all the fuses and none were blown. Where do I go from here?

Radio was working great today, then bam it quit. Checked the fuse found it blew(10amp) replaced it. Tried to power up the radio NOTHING... Checked ground wiring,it's fine, checked two other fuses fine....


If you already have your dash apart, have you looked for a fuse directly on the radio itself? There should be one somewhere near the power wiring on the back of it. If this is blown, you will be getting power to the wiring, but not to the radio. Replacing this fuse should help you out.
If this is not the problem, use a voltmeter to check the wiring where it goes into your stereo. If there is no power here, then the power overload that blew your 10amp fuse is probably related to a short circuit somewhere in the wiring between the fuse and the stereo. To repair this, you will likely have to run a few new power wires (you should replace both the positive and negative to make sure you have fully bypassed the problem) from the fuse to the stereo. If you have checked these wires with a voltmeter and they have power at the back of the stereo, but the stereo itself is not still not working, then the problem is with the stereo itself.
If you find that the wiring to the stereo all has power ... the fuses are all good (which you have already stated) ... the fuse on the stereo itself is in good shape ... then there might be a short within the workings of the stereo itself. If you are not experienced with repairing electronics this could be out of your ability to fix -- you can bring it to a shop or buy a replacement. If you are experienced with repairing electronics, open up the stereo and start checking the wiring (starting from the closest point to the power input and moving towards the stereo's face. This could be a long and arduous process ... so if you are not experienced with it ... I recommend taking it to a professional or just replacing it (your hair is probably worth more than the $100 you would spend on a decent replacement stereo ... and if you are like me, you would be ripping out your hair after checking the first few hundred possible connections within the stereo itself).
Hopefully it is just the fuse on the back of the stereo itself, and you can have that fixed in short order. Good luck!

My fuse to the stereo blew out and i need to know where to find the fuse under the hood?


Is it factory radio or aftermarket?

Check your fuses. This a common thing that can come up often if you have changed from stock stereo equipment to after market, or just because of old fuses.

Once you locate the fuse box, it should give you a diagram of which fuses go to the different lighting systems in your car. Replace them and the problem should be fixed.

If the problem is not fixed from that, then have your wiring checked throughout the truck.

Where does th JVC KS-SRA 100 power cord wire into. It says 14V DC outlet. is this the fuse box or a wire on the JVC receiver. I can get satelite reception but sound


Hi,
Power cord that goes to fuse box to provide power to unit. Yellow to 14V DC and black to Ground / car body.
J-Bus connector goes to receiver to amplify sound that goes to speakers.

Hit "add a comment" for further query / info.
Thanks.

I installed 2 12" volfenhag subs with a power cap and had it all put in and the inner speakers werent working so i switched em out and put in new ones and the subs wont work now. i poped the fuse and had...


i dont recommend using aluminum foil buy the correct fuses they arent exspensive. any auto parts store should carry most types. first check all of your power connections then check your ground connections if all looks and seems secure check the physical wire connections on the speakers. make sure the remote wire is connected properly. if none of this works try a different audio source to check the speaker itself

My stereo wont save settings and resets every time i turn off car


Check the backup power source (usually a yellow wire) on the stereo wiring harness. (If it is an after market stereo.)

Check the fuse box(s) for an open fuse it's probably marked on the fuse box or in the owners manual. (both factory and after market radios)

Popped fuses


make sure that the amp is properly grounded, paint somtimes makes it hard for the wire to be grounded, scrape off the paint with a screwdriver or whatever. also make sure that none of the wire are crossed exept if that was done on purpose
