New to This - Stereo Issue
Hey everyone, I'm Jeff live in Oshawa. I'm new to the forum stuff so I'm not to sure how to go abouts this lol. I have a 2007 cobalt ss 2.4, nothin special like the turbos or sc.
Anyways I'm having radio problems. I baught the car and it had a smashed radio, screen cracked and sounds like a shattered cd shaking around inside of it...
So i baught a replacement radio off somone from kijiji.. The exact same plugins buttons and screen, the only difrence is the new one i baught is black and my original broken one is silver.
I plug the new black one in and nothing turns on. I can put a cd in and out but the screen stays off, no sounds, no door chimes, nothing like that. I can hit the display button or clock button and the display lights up the time for 5secs then shuts off.
So I guess my question is if the screen was smashed in could that have unplugged somthing else or wiggled somthing loose somewhere other then the back of the stereo itself?
If so where should I check... I really would prefer not to take it in somewhere if theres a connection I could be looking for.. I have also checked the RDO fuse, if anything else anyone can advise would be great!!
Nice to meet you all
