There are several possible causes for a radio which won't play. The simplest thing to check first would be the fuse. If you replace the fuze andÊit still won't play, it could be the radio itself or a wiring issue.

Remove the four (7mm head) screws, then pull the radio out. Remove the electrical connectors. To install the new unit you will need a Tech 2 and access to the SPS system. This may not be cheap...

For years we pulled our 2 horse trailer with a 1978 Cadillac Coupe Deville. It pulled great, the gas mileage was awful but we had cold air and a good radio

There are many ways to repair a Bose radio. How to fix it depends on what the radio is doing, if it is in a vehicle check to see if it has blown a fuse.

Something needs to be fixed. I'm not trying to be cruel here, I just don't think there is enough information to adequately answer the question. Most likely there is a problem with the radio, but I can't answer difinitively what the problem is, and neither could any other electronic repair technician. Without looking at it I couldn't tell you what the specific problem is. Check the fuse?

Need more info really. More likely to be the other way around I would have thought. How is it wired, and from where? What are you trying to do, and what is the result. DId you put it in yourself? P

OK, I changed the radio on mine and it was the worst thing to do. After I put the after market radio in the car, it started to act up. The a/c wouldn't cool and sometime the car wouldn't unlock with the remote, I would have to do it manually. I asked around and it ends up that the original radio is like the heart of the car and there isn't a module to substitute it. From experience don't change it.
