Default No sound from radio

Hello all,

Please help. There is no sound coming from the sound system. Radio or CD, it doesn't make a difference. I even tried to access the board computer by holding the button for 5 seconds. No beep, either. Any suggestions?
...
Kind Regards,
C152

Default Re: No sound from radio

If the radio powers up, they are likely good, but check fuses 35 and 36 under the hood. Disconnect/reconnect the battery to reset the radio electronics. If none of that helps, the amplifier inside the radio is probably gone bad.
It's hard to imagine all of the speakers are blown but you could check them for continuity.

I found a radio pic that shows what looks like a 15 amp fuse in the back of the head unit.

Hi imaddicted2u,

Thanks, but magically the radio works normally now. Apparently, something similar happened during the winter. Don't know what to think.

Electronics is not an exact science...lol
I read some stuff on fuse contact corrosion causing flaky problems. Maybe try cleaning them up.
Never seen a radio with a cooling duct before...I guess that's what the hole in the back of it is for. I wonder if it somehow ties into your troubles.
