anything to do with the code? Tried pulling the radio backward and checking the connections at the back?
the faceplate seemed really loose so i took it off and re-attached it. its on nice and tight now but still nothing happens. should a dead battery really effect the radio? how shall i take it out to check the back? dont wanna mess anything up even more than it is lol
Maybe its just knackered?
Halfords are/were selling a Clarion with MP3/DAB etc capability for less than £100 about 3 weeks ago. Might still be doing the offer, but as it was I fixed my current radio for £25 or so. Still thinking of buying a new one though..........
remember to check the car fuse box as well as the back of the stereo. Most cars have a fuse on the radio circuit in the fuse box. The fuse on the back of the stereo is mostly on aftermarket stereos as they are designed to be wired adhoc if needs be and often people bodge them on dodgy wiring.
Little update: popped the car to my uncles house because he owned it before me. He told me that he'd actually put the cd player in himself for my auntie (I'd assumed it for from the first owner). We checked the fuses and everything was fine so we're a bit stumped now. My last option is going to the garage that did the work on the car and asking our mechanic if he disconnected it for some reason as the immobiliser was playing up a bit before we took it.
I went to halfords today to have a look at new ones but now I know the cd player is practically unused I'm not keen on buying a new one incase that one doesn't work too. Let's just hope someone at the garage can sort it!
Get someone to check the connectors if it isn't the fuse... might just be a loose wire or the contacts isn't all that good.
I have the exact opposite problem, my car radio will turn on, but I can't put it on a different radio or the cd player, whenever you press any buttons nothing happens. The car is a S-reg fiesta, but when I first had it the radio/cd player worked fine so I'm a bit confused.
I have the same problem with my new Sony dab unit changed the wires over with the red and yellow had a spark from it took the system back got a new one with that in and still nothing I checked the fusses they are new
