Radio power

I know I have asked this before. Does the radio get power from a relay. If it does how do I check it?

No, you haven't, not here anyway. You have asked for a light bulb # and clock power though.

4 … I know I have asked this before. Does the radio get power from a relay. If it does how do I check it?

3 … Ok fromthe post about changing them thats what they looked like. Thanks for answering.

2 … Can anyone tell me what # bulb is for the oil pressure light on the dash. Just so I can make sure I have it on hand.

Thanks
Greg


1 … does the clock get power from the radio?
Year, model, etc … might help?

Might want to check fuses first.

My bad. I did get the light bulb replaced & the clock power. But my radio works sometimes & sometimes it doesn't.

Sounds like corrosion or loose connection at the fuse or one of the connectors.

'93 SE … my diagrams indicate the radio involves 2 fuses, fuse #10 (10amp) in the fuse box and fuse #13 (5 amp) in the relay box. Not saying that one is blown, but it's a place to look.
