Renault Clio Radio Not Powering On?!

alexhickman01alexhickman01

Hi

This morning went to turn radio on but it wouldnt come on!!!

When i got to work after turning the egnition off, i noticed the clock light on middle of dash was still illuminated, im 90% sure that normally goes out once the ignition is off but its perminantly on

Ive had a quick look at the fuses and changed the radio fuse however no luck, any ideas at all? Waiting for CD keys to come which i ordered today to remove CD Player, is there a fuse at the back on the CD Player that may have gone?

Cheers

Alex

    Had the same problem with mine, our car savvy friend couldnt make head nor tail of it, he ended up disconnecting the battery then reconnecting it and it has worked fine ever since.

    Just make sure you have the radio code (if it's not goosed as suggested above) before you disconnect battery as you usually need to re-enter it.

    But the link doesn't mention how the radio thing affects the dash lights does it?

    "The radio's cant handle the cold temps and they break when they get below a certain temp. I heard it was due to an old trick of breaking the radio code was to put it in the freezer and it would work fine. so renault put a thermostat in the radio to shut it off after it reaches a certain temp"

    I very much doubt that theory, Although it is possible for anything to break at a certain temperature..!!!

    I have no knowledge where the code is, just looking through the manuals supplied with the car, the radio manual doesnt seem to tell me a code "/

    Well you usually do I think. It's a security feature, logical really. So you can't just rip it out and sell it, as it won't work.

    This is 100% true, it still drains power from the car however, so it does in the battery and leaves the dash on. This is the fault op. It's common in Renault's.



    Great, so im gonner wake up tomorrow with a flat battery :(

    You won't get a flat battery unless you leave it for weeks.

    The radio code is on inside cover of service book.

    You can disconnect battery or remove radio (with radio keys) and pull out cable and place back in.
