I'm new to the forum and not sure how to search for a previous answer to this question.

The radio on my 2002 Explorer has no power. No lights on the screen, nothing. I checked the fuse and it appears to be fine. All other electrics are working fine.

Anyone know what might be the problem?


You mentioned fuse but according to my Haynes wiring diagram there are a total of 4 fused connections to the stereo for various functions. Need to check each of them at the fuse panel in the cab.

Per Haynes:

Fuse 26 (or 28 small print) 5A for Fused Ignition
Fuse 3 20A Power
Circuit Breaker PTC1 5A Fused Ignition
Fuse 4 5A Fused Ignition

New here, 02 explorer has pwr to fuse panel but nothing works. Turn anything on and meter goes to 5v or less like a short on everything. Help
