Customer Question
My Platz 2002 radio...

My Platz 2002 radio stopped working after I mistakenly connected a amp remote wire to the cigarette lighter while the battery was still connected

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

The radio has a screen that displays volume, bass volume, treble, fade, balance, CD track # etc

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '02 Toyota?

Platz

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have only been trying to see if there is a fuse for the radio alone anywhere

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

I only need the radio to be playing. I am trying to connect a 400 watt Amplifier and an output line converter to push some six inch speakers in the rear
