Radio fails to turn on

2 posts in this topic

Hi, I found recently after jumpstarting a colleagues car, that the radio failed to turn on afterwards.

I checked the obvious fuses (F31, F50, F7 in that order of likelyhood) but no joy, all OK.

Out of desperation, I just tried removing, then replacing the little removable security panel (the channel changer), and BINGO - it fixed it. I can only assume that doing a jump-start (with engine running) can sometimes corrupt the internal power logic of the radio, and it sometimes THINKS that the panel has been removed, but just needs to get itself back in sync. TD :rolleyes:

hi, glad you got it sorted.

It was probably just a considerable difference in voltage that the cd player didnt like.
