Often there's more than one fuse that controls the radio. Some functions of the radio require power even with the key off (clock) and are on a different fuse. Are any other items not working? (power seat, remote locks?) Check your owners manual and the underside of the lids from the fuse boxes to see if you can find any other references to fuses for the radio.

YES...it's an evil conspiracy! We know where you live and sent a signal by satellite to destroy your radio! Now you must pay!!!

haha...no kidding. I called the CHrysler dealership and they advised me that this model was prone to the radio not lasting very long (wish they would have told me that at signing!!) Am waiting for my boyfriend to check the wwires. A NEW factory radio is $900 (CDN)...don't think I'll be getting one of those!!! Will let you know what happens......................It's pretty darn quiet going to work in the morning!!!

HEHE, yeah just get a decent aftermarket one installed. You'll be MUCH happier with it. For 900 bucks think how nice of a setup you could get!

On a side note, no particular year model is prone to bad radios really. Vendors are a funny thing. One batch might last 10 or more years, one batch may last 6 months. You can find these all over Ebay, but then you'll be right back where you started.

OK......I seriously am dumbfounded. The whole "Radio" thing happened one morning...I went to get gas...the radio was working fine...I turned the car off to refuel and when I started it , the radio did not work. I pressed every button on it, channel selection, volume, eject button, etc. to no avail. My boyfriend & I were in the car today and he pushed the eject button for the CD, and the radio started working again......what the hell????? Now it works fine.........I seriously am dumbfounded.
