SOURCE: installed new radio now radio and dome light dont work

If you are looking for the fuse a good place to look is on the left side panel as you set on the passager's side. Pull that panel off and look on the panel that you pulled off and it will tell you which fuses go to the radio...pull that fuse out and look to see if there is a burnt mark on it; if so that maybe your problem.

There is an orange wire that runs from the ignition to the fuse panel. It can be accessed from the driver's side. This orange wire plugs into the back panel of the fuse box. It has a pin which comes loose. If you take the wiring harness that is above the gas pedal where your foot normally is and move it a little; it should start working momentarily. If it starts back up by jiggling it around, that definitely is your problem. Just take a screw driver small enough to get in there and push that pin back into place. That should do the trick. The only other thing that will do this is a bad ignition switch where you put your key into.

I had a radio installed in my 2004 chevy impala and now the battery is always running down and the systems are not working right. what can I do to fix this


You apparently did not hook the radio up to a hot wire when switch is on 'only'. The radio is constantly pulling power from battery even when parked and off with key out. Turn switch on, find a hot wire, turn key off. If power goes off, use that wire for the radio. That's it. Done. Stop replacing batteries now. As for the heater and defrost, you've given no symptoms other than the Battery drain.

2005 Ford Escape - I lost my power windows, power door locks, blinkers, radio, rear defroster, rear wiper, dome lights, and the warning beep when the keys are in the ignition, all at the same time....


Did you have the vehicle's control module system checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's ??????? Specifically the SJB - smart junction box , ford's BCM - body control module . Does the remote start/keyless entry still work ? Adding after maket system's to vehicle's (even your year ) isn't all ways a good ideal . It can cause major problems ! Having a qualified professional automotive technician check it out would be a good idea. Who installed these aftermarket systems ? Some of these place's have no idea what they are hooking to , any old place they can find B+ power .

I have a 2003 Honda Civic EX coupe. Installed aftermarket radio cd player and the cd works but the radio does not. The issue is not with the new unit as the previous player's radio would not work either....


If you're getting power to the CD player then there's power
to the radio. The antenna involves the grid on the rear window,
an antenna coil and cable to the radio. You can check the
grid for a break and if it's small you're auto parts store will
have a repair kit. My 05 Accord rear window defogger did
not work and it took Honda 2 attempts to repair it. Other
than checking the grid I would bring it to the dealer.

My 91 prk ave has power going to the radio and heater controls, but nothing works, except the rear window defroster which won't stop working. Is it the little black box under the right hand dash causing...


It sounds like you don't have a ground going to those areas. I think I would check for a ground...maybe pull the fuse on the rear defroster and see if it is even a part of the problem.
