Stereo issues

Howdy all.

First time poster, long time lurker here. A quick overview, I have a '92 YJ and couldn't be happier with it...well almost.

A while back my battery died, and after replacing it I noticed that the radio was no longer working. Try as I might, I just cant seem to figure out what is going on. I've checked all the lines, every fuse I can find yet nothing. It is getting juice, as my speaker bar is wired to the same negative line, and the lights still work.

I'm quite the novice when it comes to the whole electrical/stereo thing so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance, All.

try this

Have you tried unhooking the battery and let set so everything can reset wfen you hook the battery back up wait about 10 min. after you unhook it before you hook it back up. Is it a stock radio?

No I have not tried that. And I will definitely give that a shot. It is not stock, Pioneer.

Thank you for the tip. I'll post with results.

Most of the after market radios are now coming with two power leads. One is for a constant "hot" to power the clock function. The other is switched with the key to power the unit itself. Both of these are typically fused as well. Might try checking fuses.

Well, no dice on the battery disconnect. Thanks though, Red.

I ran out of daylight, but I'll be giving Whtieyj's suggestion a try tomorrow. I assume the switched wire with the key is what is labeled as "ACC"? It was the one mystery wire I ran across.
