Q. I had my car battery replaced and now my car stereo does not work?

A. First, the shop installing your battery will never admit they may have hooked the new battery up backwards for a moment.

Check ALL fuses! There are two fuses for most car stereo systems. There may be a fuse panel under the hood too. Usually near the battery.

Mercedes, Jaguar, check all fuse panels. There may be one or several fuse panels in the trunk or under rear seat.

  •  One, switched +12 volts through the ignition. The is usually labeled well for the stereo and you will recognize it in the fuse panel.

  • Two, constant +12 volts to hold the memory stereo station presets. Not labeled well in most fuse boxes, check ALL fuses.

NOTE - if you have a factory amplified or Premium Sound System, there may be a fuse for the amplifier. Normal defect, stereo turns on, no sound. Check ALL fuses.

If all fuses look good? Try disconnecting one of the battery terminals for a couple of minutes then reconnect. This may act as a "Reset" and bring the stereo back to life. A common fix on many Ford Premium Sound Systems for stereo on and no sound or '98 and newer Cadillac with stereo going into Code mode for no reason.

There are occasions when there may be a fuse on the back of the car stereo, most Audi, VW, MBZ and Land Rover. There is no "In-line fuse" for the stereo other than the fuse box or on the car stereo. To remove your car stereo and check for fuses, see links to left.

For aftermarket car stereos, if they were installed properly, there are two in-line fuses in the wire harness. The same two +12 volt supplies mentioned above. These fuses can be found behind the aftermarket car stereo in the wire harness to the car stereo.
