Hey guys, sorry this is probably going to be a pretty lame thread compared to all the cool stuff you guys talk about. I have a stock Shaker 500 in my 2006 Mustang GT that, just last week, stopped working. The stereo seems to be getting no power, as it will not turn on. Everything else around it still works fine, however - my climate control system, hazard lights, dash computer, cigarette plugs, etc all still work fine. I have made no recent changes to the system, or done anything to it (to my knowledge) that could have caused this - it just sort of stopped working out of the blue the other day.
So far what I have done is checked both fuse boxes in the car (as you can read here)
. There is one at the kick plate on the passenger side, and another in the engine compartment. There is a fuse related to the radio in each, and both of those fuses are fine. I also switched each of the fuses with another similar fuse, and while the area I switched the fuse to still worked, the new fuse in the radio slot yielded no new result.
I'm wondering now if there's anything more that I can check to fix the problem myself. I am admittedly not experienced with car audio, and I have run through the problem as much as I am able on my own through internet searches. Does anyone have any ideas on any other things that I could try that a relative new-comer to car audio might be able to handle, or is it time for me to take the stereo in to an audio shop and have them look at it?
The only modification that was ever done to the audio system was that I had an iPod plug installed in the console, but that was about two years ago and the system has been fine up until now.
Thanks for your help, everyone. Much appreciated.
