      Radio and Clock

      I recently changed my alternator and battery and i know i have to enter a code for the radio but i can't turn it on,

      I also have the problem of the clock resetting when i open the door or turn off the key.

      I have checked all the fuses and they are all ok ......Is there a fuse ( like in the older cars under the dash attched to the wires ) .

      I would appeciate if someone can help me . 2004 Aveo

      Thanks

      There is a fuse box inside the car (drivers side) and another one under the hood (drivers side) for a total of two if you did not see them both.

      Thanks Thehunterooo, i have checked both of the fuses ( inside drivers side and the under the hood also ). It is like there is no power coming into the wires that you plug the radio into .

      Do you have the ignition key turned to the on position when you test the radio wires for current? What are you using to test for electrical current?

      Yes i had the ignition switch to the on postion, my brother in law had a GM radio that had the same plug and he tried with his radio and it didn't work either , so i am wondering if there is another fuse under the dash attached to the wires that is burned .

      He tested it with a electrical tester and it was like there was no current coming in from the wires, i don't see how that when i changed the alternator that the wires would not work after .

      Thanks.

      Just for the heck of it, change the radio fuse that is inside the car (bottom one right in the middle) just in case. I also wonder if something is shorting out somewhere.....if all the fuses are good then I would move on to looking for any sort of short. Also could be a poor ground somewhere.

      I have burnt out my radio fuse 30-40 times I do not believe there are any other fuses on that track anywhere else, GM did one thing right this time
