Hello, the radio is the only item not working correct?

Expert:  James replied 10 months ago.

The fuses you want inside the vehicle are 8,18. Both of these fuses should be 5amp fuses. Under the hood fuse 29 should be a 20amp fuse and have power at all times. Fuse 8 has power when the radio should be on with the key on or in accessory. If all of these are ok and have power please let me know and we can continue.
