Radio not switching on...

had the car fixed...as in head gasket etc.
meaning all cables etc were discnnected

the radio has no code enabled

i went to switch it on., bear in mind no tiem has been set, so its not flashing however it does have the 2 dots to seprate the hours and minutes

afgter switching on, the radio light ups but its still the same display with no time

but nothing else happens??

Re: Radio not switching on...

havent got a tape to try on

but the grundig cd changer is connecter, the chnager itself is operarting

however on the radio itself you cannot select the changer etc..there is no operation on the radio

checked the fuses..all seem to be ok..i assume the radio fuse wil be titled 'services'?

need to buy official fiat fuses as i have half fiat and the other half universal ones.

By the sound of it, the radio gets current to sustain the memory but the real power feed is not working. Check the fuses left of the steering wheel.

Re: Radio not switching on...

cheers Sven, ill prob replace them

trouble is the orignal fuses the bravo came with are of a very good quality

recently any motor factors sell a cheap version. the fuses are numbered and not soldered correctly onto the casing, leaving the blade intact lol

i shall also reattempt the feeler gauge tool, as it was struggling to fit yesterday

Re: Radio not switching on...

Hi Sven

fuses seem in place

looking at
http://www.fiatboo.co.uk/run-a-bravo.htm#part8

i dont think it may be the same for all bravos

but the rest of the areas in he car seem to be functioning well

the radio display light coems on, when you press the power button but that its not wording is shown, you can switch off the radio and the display light turns off

i took out the stereo and all connectors which had cables were all in, there is a yellow connector which doesnt have wires..but im only using the standard grunding changer not an aftermarlket system so i assume its meant to be an empty connector

any more ideas?

Re: Radio not switching on...

looks like the door unlock control is in line with the radio
so it canot be the fuse as the door unlock works fine.

Could be as inĀ*some radios the aerial acts as a ground wire.

Re: Radio not switching on...

cheers OZ

however odd behaviour

at times on the radio would freeze, meaning no matter how many button pressing does not work..

i can switch it on..and when i switch it off..itll take sometiems 2 minutes to register the OFF button

What i can understand these maybe issue with the radio side as in aerial etc
BUT my cd changer is external expept attached with a lead cable, why is the CD changer acting the same as the radio>?

Does it look liek the stereos gone/

As mentioned i have taken it out and sprayed alot of contact cleaner but to no avail
