Replace the power wire . ADDITION>>>> If this is an Infinity Gold system, there are several chip resistors inside the radio that have overheated and melted the solder on one end of them, causing a cold solder joint, when you physically dissconnect the radio you are removing the memory voltage (and hence cutting current flow) through these resistors, allowing them to cool and reconnect, but when voltage is reapplied, current flows through them and they heat up, breaking the connection, or at least inducing a bad connection with extremely high resistance that is prenting the radio from functioning. A similar issue also causes the Infinity systems to lose their display. This is easily repaired by anyone familiar with surfacemount components and basic ELECTRONIC troubleshooting and repair skills

How do you remove the radio-CD-cassette in a 2004 Hyundai Tiburon?

My wife has an 05 and its the same dash. First, open the ash tray located on the bottom left side of the radio bezel, so you can fit a flat-head screwdriver in behind it. Then with the screwdriver pry up the bottom corner of the bezel right above the ashtray It should pop out a little bit. Then do the same to the other side of the bezel. Then, pry up the middle left, then the middle right, working up towards the top. After that you can pretty much give the bezel a little tug and it should pop all the way off. Unplug the wires on the back of it to get it completely out of your way. Then you will see four screws. Two on each side of the radio. Take those out. Then there will be two screws underneath the cubby holding it in place. Take those out and the whole radio will come out. Unplug all the wires from the back, unscrew it from the plastic cubby housing, and you're done.
