Why would the radio not work no lights or anything when the fuses are fine in the car?

MAJOR electrical short. Have it checked by an automotive wiring technician.

Check your fuses - they are operated separately

Is it doing anything? Lights? check the ground line? Bad Unit? Warranty?

Check your fuses. See owner's manual for location and assignment of fuses.

Check your fuses. Sometimes it is just that simple.

try checking the fuses

sounds like you have overloaded and blown a fuse or relay check fuses . disconnect power source for radio recheck fuses.if dash lights come on, find a different point for power supply for radio. actually you should connect radio to accesories .lights dont take as much power as radio

Have you checked the fuses? Different circuits have different fuses. It may be your wiring harness, but check the fuses first.

Did you check the fuse in back of radio? and you might have more fuses under hood of car that may have blown out. my car has fuses inside and out under the hood also. If all fuses are good then you just smoked your radio.

The brake lights are a separate circuit from the other lights. Check the fuses and bulbs. If fuses and bulbs are okay I would suspect the brake light switch is at fault.

My guess would be a bad dimmer switch or a loose ground connection caused be a aftermarket radio being installed. Hope it helps!!! Slackers Of Va.

Radio in 1990 Lexus LS400 stopped working, possible answer?

A simple first step would be to check the fuses to these lights, then go from there.

Did you Chevy the fuses for the radio? i had the same problem before. i bought a whole new radio and it still didn't work and i just thought i would check the fuses and one was blown and put a new one in it and it worked fine afterwords. If it is not the fuse check the wiring harness that plugs into the radio it should go underneath the dash, but if the fuse is not blown and all the wires are plug in and grounded u might need to put a new radio in it. but don't just check the radio fuse. even no if its not blown the other fuses have stuff to do with it i would just check all your fuses and see what happens after that.

Check the plug-in for the trailer lights, if it has one. If not, check the Headlight switch. It probably has a burnt wire.

Is the light bulb inside burnt out. If so, that would do it.

The radio fuse would be under the steering column and the relay would be under the hood in the PDC (Power Distribution Center.)

Check fuses if there is one specific for the lights (not interior) Find it funny that both would burn out at the same time so would imagine it is in the switch.

User Avatar

first thing i would check would be all the fuses. then the light switch

User Avatar

the dash and radio lights are supposed to dim when the headlights come on. Make sure you have the brightness of the dash lights turned up as much as possible.

If fuses keep blowing on your Honda, you likely have a short somewhere. You can get a multimeter and a copy of the wiring diagram so you can track down the short, or you can have a mechanic do it. If you've recently installed anything new such as a radio or a gauge or switch, that would be where you want to start.
