Radio won't turn on.

I worked on my truck and had a alternater fuse blow. The truck wouldn't run at all. Then when I fixed the fuse and started the truck back up the radio wouldn't work at all. There is a sticker on the window that says if radio is disconnected it will be disabled. I bought this truck with radio alreday in it. The only thing the radio will do is run a message across the screen that says call 800 7790 1099. I tried that, trust me, this number doesn't fix radios. Can someone give me some suggestions to try. Thanks for all your help.

    I have this model stereo in my new boat and when I installed an amp I accidently cut all three power wires. I have connected all three wires the same as they were but the stereo will not turn on at all. What can I do to fix this problem?

When all 3 wires are cut at the same time, it sends current through the ground wired and shorts out the circuit board in the radio. nothing you can do except buy another one.

I have a 2004 Nissan Quest. First, the speakers started popping off, then radio wouldn't work anymore. We pulled the fuse under the hood and reinserted it. When it sparks radio will come back on....


if you are having radio issues where you have to mess with the fuse to make it work i would say it is the culprit for the battery draw, a lot of radios trigger the eject when power is reconnected for the memory wire, that is not a problem with the radio.
try unplugging the radio and see if that fixes the battery draw.

A/c and radio wouldn't turn on vents blowing hot air


I would check for voltage at the ac relay and the fuses. Could be a problem with the key switch or power to the fuse box.

Vw polo abs light won't go off. I've replaced the 40 amp strip fuse located in the fuse comparment above the battery but it still hasn't gone off even thought the orginal fuse was blown. Anyone...


Well, first of all, did you fix the problem that caused the fuse to blow? Have you scanned you Antilock Brake System (ABS) module for fault codes? Since the computer is the one responsible for turning the light on, wouldn't you think that the computer would be the one to ask WHY it has turned the light on?

Toyota Camry 1997, 4 cyl, when ignition is turned on, the fuse for cluster instrument blows instantly also alternator not charging , but the alternator has been checked and is good.


their is a shout in one of the wires running from the alternater start at the alternater and work your way back from their. the alternater will test good as it shuts down for safty so the car will not just keep produceing electricity and start burnning wires.

Sounds like a main fuse has blown. Might be an inline type, a pin type or a fuse link. Usually near the positive post on the battery or under hood

There is a starter fuse in the black fuse box under the hood. It will have the label of each on it. If you replace the fuse, and it blows again, then the starter is bad.
