Default radio just shut off... anti theft light is blinking

Hey while i was driving the other day my radio just shut off, the next day my car died so i took it to the dealer and he put in a new alternator... but the radio still wont come on.

What can the problem be? Is there more to it to get the radio back on?? And if i replace the factory radio with my cd deck will it work??

so check the fuse box under the hood or is it under the steering wheel?

i don't have my manual with me - and i have a 95lx - but i'm pretty sure if i remember right it's under the hood. there should be a sheet on the one under your hood telling you what each fuse # does....if it ain't there it's just to the left of your left foot when you're driving (if it's the same as a 95)

well i checked under the hood and the diagram said 7.5 Radio (backup) and 2 spaces above was just a regular 7.5 fuse... i tried swapping them radio still doesnt work... and when i went into the car my clock was reset. Im going to go and buy fuses... but if i go ahead and install my cd player do u think it will work???

Replacing the alternator is like takin all your power away. Try the radio code im pretty sure thats what happened. If you install a cd player you should be straight. If the anti-theft light is on there is power going to the unite

For safe measures:
1. Take off positive battery cable for 2-3 mins
2. Reconnect
3. Turn on car and enter radio code given to you

i got it to work, there were 2 fuses blown a 7.5 and a 15 which was for the radio, i also installed the cd deck.... another question:

Do i need a mounting kit? or can i use what it came with??

The easiest way to tell if you would need a kit would be to go to http://www.crutchfield.com , pick out a radio of the same size as what you have, put it in your cart and see if they automatically add a kit.

If they add a harness but no kit, you don't need a kit. If they do add a kit, then you probably need one. If you need one, just check out any local stereo installer, they'll sell you a metro kit for ~ $12 or $15. For the harness, look at some place like Wal-mart, you should be able to pick one up for ~ $7 or so (or you could buy the harness from the stereo install place for ~ $12 or $15).

You can get a dash kit, or with a little work you can use the factory pocket. Using the factory pocket looks better, but it isn't fun making sure it stays and looks perfect.
