    radio issue

    There are two lines of 12VDCV going to the radio.
    One for radio power and one for lighting.
    As I recall they both might have inline fuses nearby.

    Thank you. I have a long weekend to try and figure it out. I am guessing the I will need to remove radio to get to these inline fuses.

    radio power

    Actually, since most of the audio connections travel to the right, you might want t start by dropping the passenger side bolster and the climate control venting.
    It's been a long time but I recall being able to fish out the bundles of wires there.
    Besides I think removing the radio required removing the ski slope.
