Q: My radio power wouldn't turn on, what should I check

asked by on

I hit my radio power button, I got nothing, no response.

My car has 956000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there:

The radio is powered by two individual components; the fuse and the electrical relay. One of these two components will most likely be damaged; causing your radio power button to not function correctly. However, if you inspect these and they are not damaged, it’s likely that the radio itself is broken internally and needs to be replaced.
