No power to display for GPS, radio
I went to work and after working started up the car
and radio did not turn on and screen was blank. It
has been a couple of days now and still has not
came on. Is there anything I can do? Checked
fuses and they are fine. Dealership said $1,300 to
replace radio. Not covered under warranty.
I would disconnect the battery for e couple minutes to see if it would reset itself, if not, check for voltage at the plug by the radio, If voltage is present, then you have a bigger problem
I disconnected the battery and waited 5 minutes and tried it and still nothing. Where is this plug by the radio? Do I have to remove the radio or dash?
Yes, I would double check the fuses first but if you already did, here's a video that might help get access to the stereo power plug. https://youtu.be/ApVyLEXNrgg Hope it helps
This is how I fixed it. https://youtu.be/VwbYrL8Iq5A
Wife brought home her 2012 Chevy Equinox tonight. No radio or cell phone connection. Radio info screen stayed lite up when the car was off. When I started the car, screen still on. No heater fan either. I fixed the entire problem by pressing the phone icon on the rear view mirror. Heard that pretty female voice say, " Call ended, goodbye." Everything back to normal.
