Hello, for some reason I feel you did blow a fuse, there are 3 fuses to the radio persay, You must change these fuses out, dont just look at them, the fuse I feel may be the problem F22 but F3 and F27 are possibles. Please swap each of them out,ALl are located in the inside fuse box, by steering column etc. I doubt a relay but possible, at which time we will need a testlight to test a few things,I lean to a fuse though, I included a diagram showing fuse layout
odd, the radio can/will prevent cranking /starting as antitheft is controlled by the radio, unsure at the moment, swap fuse F 23 in the inside fuse box, starter is possible but thinking a link to the antitheft is not working, is the antitheft light flashing with key on?
ALL wires MUST be connected. The radio has the "Start feature" for starting the van built in, All about antitheft
just do not know., I am pretty sure this radio is plug and play, I cant remember all of them, what about old radio? can you plug it back in?
F27 will only have power with key held to START, do you have power that way?
ok, then swap out the big 60 amp fuse in the under hood fuse box, F7, Use another similar to it, I guess for testing , even if amp is not exact, or need another new one to try, link shows F7
still no power at F3? that fuse is powered direct from the F7 in the under hood fuse box, If no power? then I am confused, I doubt wiring issue, its fuse F7 to fuse F3 in the inside fuse box, Can you probe the top tabs of f7 in the under hood fuse box? volts ther on each side with fuse still in?
ok, I was going off you saying F3 had no power, I am unsure how all fuses and power are good, was cranking fine prior to this and now nothing,. I need to opt out and open the post to the other experts, I am sorry I am at a loss on this
