Actually, this might be the least of my worries, but it is the most obvious symptom. I solicited a jump start yesterday morning, and a kind passerby obliged. I hooked up my end while he hooked his end up BACKWARDS! I didn’t check his work before turning the key (insert dope slap here), at which point any damage was done. I corrected the cable, started my car, and found that everything worked. I had to reset the date & clock on the dash display, and the radio is completely non-responsive, but other than that lights, trip computer functions, seats, locks, EVERYTHING seems to be alive except the flippin’ GM - Delco radio. I checked the fuses in the fusebox associated with the radio / amp (there are three) and all are intact. My questions are:
- Why? How do I get my NPR back? Driving in quiet solitude is completely un-American, and it’s freaking me out.
B. Is there greater heartache waiting down the road for me? The car has started several times since this, but have I created future alternator-type excitement in my otherwise uneventful life?
Thanks in advance for any help.
