It's not fuses or anything, its wiring in the back of the stereo. You could remove the radio and take a look see if wiring has come loose.


The problem is the display and the radio are connected by a multi pin connector.When the connection is lost you have no display or radio functions. What I did to correct this is. Take out the in dash mounted box to gain access to the 2 screws holding the rear of the radio assembly. You may need to remove the whole radio and with the key on loosen the screws holding display and the radio base. Move the two around with the screws loose till the radio starts working and put all back with out those 2 rear screws.
