Radio won't turn on

Asked by Mar 21, 2015 at 02:20 PM about the 1991 Jeep Wrangler Sahara

Question type: General

The radio in my jeep just quit
working. Checked the fuse and it is
fine. Swapped it out anyways and
still nothing. Not sure about the
wiring at all. Took the dash off and I
couldn't make heads nor tails of it.
Also the cigarette lighter still works.
just no power gettin to the radio it
seems. Any ways to find the source
of the problem?

Put a test light across the power leads at the radio. If there is power, and you have a good ground, you either need a new radio or the lead isn't making good contact t the plug. If not, check for power ar the fuse. If there is power there, the wire is bad between the fuse and the radio. If not, you will have to go segment-by segment intill you find the broken wire.

Sometimes the ignition key on my Jeep pulls out a bit and the radio stops working. Try pushing the key in.
