Default 2010 GT Shaker System Problem

When I start my car, the dashboard monitor reads "Mustang GT" as if the radio is off, but when I push the power button nothing happens. None of the buttons on the dashboard do anything when I push them like there is some sort of internal switch that is turned off. There obviously is some sort of power going to the radio since the screen displays, so I don't believe that it's a fuse issue... Has anyone else had this problem and know how to fix it? Thanks!

Always check the fuses. There's a lot of different systems that are involved here...and fuses are one of the easiest things to check. - A lot easier than pulling apart your dash to look for a loose connector.

Check the fuses, that is my first guess at the problem. Secondly if all the fuses are good I would check the connections at the back of the main radio box in the dash... I believe it is 6 total screws to pull it out and look, might even be able to do it with only removing 2 screws and reaching your hand back there to look. how long have you had the problem?

this is not necessarily so; the radio, display, and control panel are all separate modules.
