Hello, at the radio harness check the red wire for 12 volts with the key on, yellow wire should have 12 volts at all times and check the black ground wire for continuity to ground. It's not uncommon to have a wire break from the vibration. Let me know what you find and we can work further if needed.

My goal is to provide 5 star service. Rating/accepting does not cost extra and ensures I'm credited for my time and knowledge. It also does not close your question if you have a follow up concerning this. Thank you for using Just Answer!
