I removed the (factory-installed) radio from my 2002 Buick LeSabre to clear a cassette jam. Got the cassette out, but the cassette loader is knackered enough that I’ll probably have to get a new radio.
Here’s my question: the jammed cassette kept the radio on and drained my battery enough so I don’t even get a whimper when I try to start it. I’ve tried to use a portable Jump&Go jump starter but with no luck. I’d rather not waste time putting the radio back in if I’m going to have to replace it anyway, but I’m wondering if the gaping hole where it used to be has anything to do with my inability to jump start my car (or if it might be the fault of the jump starter).
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
