I opened the doors to let in some fresh air for about 30 minutes. Wiped down the Dash and the TC control light came on and off. After that I found that the Radio is not working. The Screen is Blank.

Hi,

Have you checked to see if the fuse has failed? Also, are there any other electrical components that are not working?

The fuse for the radio is in the vehicle's instrument panel fuse block which is located on the passenger side of the vehicle, on the lower portion of the instrument panel center console near the floor.

I need you to check the fuse first to make sure it is good. If it is, check to make sure there is power to the fuse when the key is on.

I attached a pic below indicating the fuse location in the fuel box.

Let me know what you find.

Take care,

Joe

Hi,

If the fuse is good and there is power to and from it, the next thing to check is for power at the radio itself.

I attached the wiring schematic below for you to review. There will be a red wire from the fuse you checked powering the radio. Disconnect the connector and check if that wire has power where it plugs into the radio.

Let me know what you find or if you have other questions.

Take care,

Joe
