Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My ground touched something and sparked. But no fuses
are blowed and my radio won't turn on

4 Answers

What kind of radio is it?


Is there a fused link to the radio? Does the radio have an internal circuit breaker or fuse?

I tested the radio it works. But you no grand prix has that special wiring kit, it has some kind of capacitor on it. I'm wondering if that's bad???


If you got a spark from your ground lead, it probably touched a 12v source and could have easily blown a fuse. Had the radio been operating in the car before this happened or were you just then doing the install?
