If you see the menu and clock,there is and issue with the stereo it self.

I will repeat that I can see the clock only when the Menu button is pushed. The clock can be set. The stereo does not display any Menu functions and does not work. I also replaced the radio but the problem continues with the replaced stereo exactly. I suspect that there is no stereo power even though fuses are good.

It’s happened to mine too !! How do you fix it

It was in my problem a power supply problem. There are several power connections to the radio that are connected to the ignition switch through the steering column. There is a connector in the steering column that links the ignition switch to the radio connector. As it turned out for me, that connector worked itself loose eventually opening the start connection to the ignition relay. Reconnected that connector and everything worked fine. Took a long time to trace and included the purchase of a used stock radio/CD. I now have that one for sale.
