Customer Question

Replaced battery on 2009 Elantra, now radio does not work.
JA: Have you checked the fuse?
Customer: Yes, I checked, there are two fuses together in a plastic frame, they are both OK.
JA: Are you fixing your Elantra yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Checked fuses, then I pulled out the plastic frame that holds the 2 fuses, waited one minute and reinserted it. Radio still did not work.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No, that's all.

Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner past midnight.

  • Sorry no one has helped yet.
  • I can help with this question.
  • Reply and let me know when your able to work on this concern.
  • Its possible the prior discharged battery surged the voltage and fried the radio. We need to do wire testing at the radio if you can.

Fuses in car were fine. I did not know there was also a fuse on the back of the radio. That fuse was blown. In the future please advise customers to check fuse on radio as well as fuses in panel.
