Hi all,

I started to unscrew the bottom left screw that holds the radio in when the all the interior lights turned off (the driver door was open the whole time).

After I installed the radio, using a wiring harness and triple checking the wires, it won't even turn on. I even went to the store and bought another identical head unit to make sure the one I had (even though it was brand new) wasn't defective. Here's he kicker: if I uninstall the wiring harness and plug in my factory radio, it works--but now it doesn't operate the power antenna (it used to work fine).

I just noticed now that the power locks don't work any more either.

Can anyone help me figure out what the heck happened?

Thanks,

Guhan

I don't know too much about these cars (I just got it about 3 weeks ago). The only fuse I checked was the one labeled "RADIO" and it looked good.

Do you know what other fuses I could check?

Thanks in advance,

Guhan

Do you think that would stop the new radio from working too? The power antenna too?

I hate electrical problems... I will check that fuse out first thing tomorrow morning. Thanks for your help guys.

don't know about the radio, but the antenna and locks are on that circuit.

That one fuse fixed the following:

Interior Lights
Power Locks
Power Antenna
New Stereo

All are working fine--interesting that one 25A fuse can bring down so many systems...

Thank you very much for your suggestions--that is one of the main reasons why I bought this car!

Thanks again,

Guhan

Glad you got it going. Put some Hendrix on and enjoy the car!
