In trying to get the dash off to diagnose my stereo, I noticed that I need to remove the panel on top of the passenger side air bag. Is it ok to remove it, or will taking it off mess up the air bag?
Oops. I was planning on going in through the sides. Guess you have a point. That will be my next area of attack.97TJAC said:How much of the dashboard are you removing?
i have only had to take out the ash tray...remove the defrost vent and then there are 2 screws i believe in there and the middle section comes out and that should be enough for you to get to everything

If it got soaked and water went inside that's entirely possible. Are we talkig about the factory radio/CD? I wouldn't even try to fix it. You can pick one up at Crutchfield.com for a little over a hundred bucks and it will come with all the installation parts as well as directions to take the dash apart the easy way.TJ_Babe said:Thinking it shorted out and fried maybe when I started the Jeep for the first time after it rained. Would love any ideas.
Tdad said:There could also be an inline fuse on the hot (usually red) wire or even a fuse inside the case.
May be a fuse on the back of the unit... Have seen them there before!TJ_Babe said:That's what I was thinking. But where would it most likely be on the power line? Are we talking into the engine compartment? or closer under the dash? Problem is that I have no clue where to start to look. Taking the dash apart is the easy part.
