none of the above it has a standard stereo
seemingly there is a dedicated fuse to control the line that provides energy to the stereo while the engine is off in order to keep the clock and presets powered
Expert:  peterpete190 replied 1 year ago.

According to my info there is a 15 amp (fuse 24) that provides the radio constant power to feed the radio to store presets and other functions.If this fuse has blown it will need replaced.If the fuse is o.k. then the radio needs removed and the wire in terminal 19 at the radio connector tested for power/voltage with the key off and on.If there is voltage on this wire then the radio itself is at fault internally needing repaired or replaced.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
