Customer Question
I have no power...

I have no power to the radio /clock in my 2006 dodge grand caravan. I pulled the #14 fuse 20 amp fuse and put in a working one, and disconnected the battery...still no radio. Interior lights work fine

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Radio just quit working one day..no power at all. So I instantly thought "bad fuse". I replaced the #14 20 amp fuse that controls teh radio and dome lights. dome lights work, and always have...radio still has no power

sorry for the delay............

Greetings...... “Hi, I’m Don (aka MOLurch) and I look forward to helping you!”

Depending on Model of Radio, there is "3" different Fuses for the Radio
Fuse "14"
Fuse "5"
Fuse "20"
All located in the IPM
IF there is Voltage + on "both sides" of Fuses with Key ON, then you need to test the DARK BLUE / PINK wire, the WHITE / VIOLET wire & the GRAY / RED wires located at the Radio Plug behind the Unit
Let me know what you find

All fuses check out, wires on the back of the radio were all plugged in with no apparent damage.
I suspect there is a short in the radio itself.
My next step is to put in a new radio to see if it works. If that doesn't work it has to be a short in the wiring harness or a connection to the IPM.
Dodge Mechanic: Don - Mo Lurch, Aftermarket & Factory Electronics replied 2 years ago

You have to have Voltage + on the wires I posted at the back of the Radio
IF you have not verified them, & do not have a Test Light or Meter, you can purchase one for under $15.00 at most Parts Stores
IF you have verified Voltage + at the wires of the Radio, then Unplug the radio for apprx 5 minutes "completely"
Reconnect & see if it Resets

I'm off to the store to buy a tester. I found the white/violet and gray/red wires....There is no dark blue pink wire though. Provided that I find a bad wire, i'll get it replaced at the shop.

tested the wires, they are fine.....must have a short in the radio
Dodge Mechanic: Don - Mo Lurch, Aftermarket & Factory Electronics replied 2 years ago

IF there is Voltage at the Radio, then the Radio should be tested for Trouble Codes, prior to Replacing, as this is a DATA Type Radio
