Q: Car radio dead

asked by on

The car radio does not work at all. It does not turn on and is just dead.

Hello, this could be a simple problem to fix. If the fuse is blown it will cause the radio to have no power. You could also just have a bad radio, and if this is the case, the radio unit would need to be replaced. A certified technician should check your radio and evaluate whether its necessary to replace the unit.
