If it's an SUV, probably from the hood, If it's a small car, you might have to get someone to fix it. You could just get an inexpensive traveling radio or a hurricane radio.

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.

No power

For what amp, a Home stereo amp or a car stereo amp? Most car amps will not have internal fuses, but home stereo amps do have internal fuses. You will notice on car audio amps fuses are always plugged into the side of the amps or they have an inline fuse that is on the main power wire into it.
You have more than likely blown a Mosfet Power Transistor, very common in car amps, I'm fixing 3 of them right now with that problem. Class "D" Amps seem to have this problem on a regular basis and they are hard to get working again once they blow. You won't even see any evidence of the bad parts inside the amp either, old amps will fill your car with thick smoke and will have obvious damaged parts. Best bet is you will be looking at buying a new amp unless you paid over $500 dollars for it, it's not worth fixing, check the warranty to have it replaced by the manufacturer.

After a phone charger disassembled in the lighter socket some parts of the lighter must have shorted in the socket. I checked the fuse under the dash but it doesn't look to be blown. The lighter,

The short out could have easily blown the stereo and clock display. You will have to replace all three to get them working. The radio could have an inline fuse on it which blew but you will have to pull it out to check.

Location of radio fuse in fuse box for 64 falcon and voltage

Just check all fuses.
Also note that many stereos also have a fuse in the back of the unit or inline with the stereo's wiring on the back of the unit. So if you find no blown fuses in the fuse box, then pull out the stereo and check there.

Radio want come on

on the driverside plastic panel beneath the steering wheel will be a fuse panel. fuses are forks of metal partially covered in plastic. they are colored. on the back of the panel are diagrams of fuses and the system they protect. find the one named stereo, and pull it out. through the plastic coating you will see a wire. if the wire is broken the fuse is blown and your stereo will not come on. if the fuse is not blown there is also another fuse located in the rear of the stereo component. reaching this one is difficult however and instructions may vary between cars. check these first. if neither is blown either your stereo component is fried or you have wiring issues.

How to check for blown fuse radio will not light up turn on

There should be a fuse plugged into the back of the stereo, remove the fuse and check the element of the fuse for being broke in half. Also, check the fuse in the car that supplies power to the stereo.

Radio / CD player will not work. Have already checked fuse box....nothing blown. Is there a fuse in the unit itself?

Yes, most stereos will have a fuse in them. Even the older ones had fuses, but most would have been old-style (glass tube with metal caps) fuse. If your stereo is a newer one, they are usually located on the back of the unit itself; look for a blade -type fuse. This would, of course, require pulling the stereo to access the back side.

Hope this helps!

Subwoofer pushing out problem

it sounds like one channel in your amp had shorted and letting dc go to the speaker...a speaker is an electromagnet and requires ac to make it pulse..the amp has a blown channel and would have to be repaired and a factory service center...there is no quick fix..
