thank you

You need to unplug the radio, then plug it back in. This might work to get it working again.

Disconnect both battery cables (positive and negative) and hold them together for 15 minutes. Then reconnect one at a time, positive first then negative. This should reset the system.

ok when you say unplug the radio how do i do that
Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

You will have to remove the trim around the radio and pull it out.

Expert:  Dan replied 1 year ago.

If both of these do not work, you will need to replace the radio.
