Q: Car radio stopped working

asked by on February 18, 2016

The radio in my car stopped working. I had the fuse checked and everything seems to be okay.

Hello. Most likely your radio has an internal problem that can only be fixed by replacing the radio entirely. There could be a problem with the wiring going to your radio, but this is rare and would probably cause the fuse to blow out. This is why in most cases, the whole radio needs to be replaced. Have a certified technician take a look at your radio and assist you with this.
