ford escort fuse help?

6
Found 2nd Jul 2008
The other day I accidently left the headlights on in my car and the battery died. After jump starting the battery , the car is fine but the radio cassette player does not come on. I think it is the fuse. However, the fuse diagram in the car does not make it clear which fuse is for the radio.I don't have a manual.

Does anyone have a PDF of, or can scan a fuse box diagram for a 1994 Ford Escort?

I think the fuse for the radio will be in the back of the head unit.
The fuse box cover normally has a description of which fuse is for what.
Failing that take each fuse out individually and check, it's quite easy (the metal bar in the plastic housing looks like a hump!) and replace any blown fuses with the same colour fuse.

The cover has symbols such as lights etc. However, no symbol matches a radio. Unfortunately, It has no descriptions.

Is it anything to do with the code of the radio, have you checked that the power supply is connected properly to your radio??

Garages normally have spare radios, or they can reset the one that you have present in your car
If it's the main fuse its F21. You'll know if it's blown as the interior lights and clock will also be dead. If that's ok and its a ford radio there should be another fuse plugged in the back of it (afair) or if its an aftermarket there will be a quick blow inline fuse in the main power wire.

I assume you have turned on the ignition before trying to turn the radio on.....

The fuse behind the radio is the culprit. Just pulled the radio out and had a look. The fuse is broken. Will get a new one tomorrow and hopefully solve the problem.

Thanks guys
