Re: [DML] Is my radio dead?

My radio did a similar thing: worked fine for weeks, and then suddenly 
did not, despite the fuses being OK.  I checked the constant +12V lead 
at the radio and got no voltage.  In my car, this lead is a solid brown 
wire that connects directly to the Battery + terminal.  I found that the 
wire had severed from its connector at the battery +12V terminal.  I 
crimped on a new ring-shaped connector, re-attached it to the battery 
+12V terminal and all was well.  I have since upgraded the stock radio, 
and still use this as the constant +12V line, now with an in-line fuse 
installed to protect it.
