2008 AURA XE
Default Radio Dead 2008 Aura

Hello everybody,

My wife started her car and the radio was completely dead. No lights, no sound, nothing. I checked the fuse and it appears to be fine. Any ideas what I should look at next? Thanks, Steve

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Default Re: Radio Dead 2008 Aura

Did you tap on the screen or give it a soft punch to the unit? Mine sometimes just doesn't come on at all and I can give it a tap or a soft punch and it comes back on. Some of the circuitry connections are degrading which is causing this.

I'm not quite ready to invest in an aftermarket radio just yet, so I keep hoping just tapping it back to life keeps it going until I can afford to put another radio in it.

I fixed it, but not exactly sure how. All I did was switch one of the 10 amp fuses in the fuse box with the radio 10 amp fuse and both systems miraculously work. I had previously took the radio fuse out and put it back in and that didn't work. Hmmmmm

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
