I have an odd issue.
A few weeks ago, as I turned the ignition to the start position (I've got a manual transmission), I heard a loud buzzing noise from just behind the dash. The day after the same happened. A few days passed by, and then again.
One morning last week I realised the radio is completely dead. No power to it at all. So I checked the fuses, all of them, and I replaced the 15 amp fuse for the radio.
Still no power.
I bought a certified functioning REF unit to replace mine. I installed it into the dash, with the hope that it would work, and it's still completely dead. I triple checked the fuses, to no effect, they're all fine.
I also did what some other people here have suggested; I disconnected the battery terminals for a while. That had no effect.
What the f-ck is going on here? No other system in the vehicle seems to be working abnormally. Just the radio.
It's just painful to not have a radio while driving, and given the very many issues my Compass has had to date, I'm seriously considering dumping it and getting another vehicle.
Can someone help?!
(My vehicle is a 2007 Compass sport with manual, front wheel drive, and2.4)
