Cannot get my radio to work...

Heather Hawkins

Asked by Oct 19, 2014 at 02:47 AM about the 2006 Saturn VUE Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So my battery died and my grandma
jumped my car. And my battery kept
dying so I kept jumping it and the got
a jump box until I could get it into the
shop. Well needless to say in the
mists of all of that my radio stopped
working. I told my Machanic he
looked at it. Took it to a Saturn
specialist. He couldn't figure it out
and took it to another place and they
all said the radio was fried. So I
bought a new one. And BOOM
doesn't work. Any advise???

Ok. I old and confused. You have to jump your Saturn all the the time and still haven't got that fixed and now your burning out radios every time you start it. Have I got that right?

1 out of 1 people think this is helpful.

First of all,i would say bad battery,or bad alternator,and second on the radio issue,sound,s like there is no fire,going to it,meaning low amperage from battery,blowed fuse.And third,is what Bmark said,think i would be more concerned about having to jump it,then the radio issue,any way,good luck with it,and morning Bmark.

In my opinion the logical thing to do would be check if any power going to radio. I assume you got a new battery that is right for your vehicle.

From my past experience with batteries they should be changed out every 3 yrs. it's unbelievable the problems a dying battery can cause today's vehicles!
