Welcome to 2CarPros.

The first thing to check is the radio fuse. It is located in the interior fuse box. I attached a picture showing the location of the fuse.

I have checked the radio and amp fuse they where both good. Can't get CD player out to check the fuse in the back of it. But so far all fuses in both locations looked good.

At this point, the only thing you can do is confirm power to the radio. If the fuse is good and there is power to the radio, possibly an internal fuse has failed, the on/off switch has failed or the radio has failed.

Let me know if you can confirm power to the radio itself.

Welcome back:

If there is power to it, then either an internal fuse in the radio has blown, the switch has gone bad, or the radio is bad.

I wish I could have had a better answer. Let me know if I can help in any way.

Take care,
Joe

There was no fuse in the radio at all. So radio must have went. Thanks for your help.
