92 Honda Accord. Turning on the radio from the knob doesn't light
lights or make anything else work. Turning it off, or hitting the
eject button won't eject the cassette adapter that I use for XM & MP3
players. Hitting the FM button won't turn on the radio.
It acts like it's not getting electricity but the antenna motor is on
the same fuse and *it* works. And the "clean" light was on until I
I read another post on this group that mentioned another fuse under
the hood. Is there one? Where? Any possibility that this fuse, if
blown, could make the the radio/cassette/etc. not work/light up while
allowing the "clean" light and antenna to work?
I found the fuse and pulled it. It looks fine. After reinserting it
I had to enter the securiy code on the radio because I had killed
power to it. It's obviously getting sufficient power to show the
"code" display on the LED display and accept the security code. It
still wont eject the cassette adapter, nor register that the cassette
is inserted by showing the "tape" LED display. I've tried jiggling,
pushing the cassette adapter to no avail.
Um, JVC CD players are on sale at BestBuy?
Or, do you have one of those radios that the climate control is integrated
into...? Sounds like something in the unit itself is not functioning and
the only way to get a clue is to pull the radio and open it up. Could be a
lot of things, from a switch to a major malfunction, or just perhaps that
the tape loaded improperly.
