Expert:  Gary replied 1 year ago.

the battery was dead and you charged it up and it will not even crank over ?

if that is correct with the battery fully charged if you disconnect both battery cables for 5 minutes then touch the 2 battery cables together for 2 minutes then reconnect both cables to the battery will the radio work and will it start up ?
