Yes, I did a search. Yes, it states look at owner's manual. I did. Nowhere do I find the radio listed in the fuse diagram in the owner's manual. I have the owner's manual and it lists a bunch of fuses under dash and in engine compartment. None mention radio. One mentions power antenna. No radio.

2001 Ford Taurus wagon with cd changer in back.
All the heater functions operate correctly. The cigarette lighter works.

The radio does not turn on. The digital clock does now show up. I cannot power up radio.

First I want to check the fuse. Where is it? Does the radio/cd/cassette have it's own fuse?

All else seems to work properly.

Can I edit a post?

Above should have stated that the clock DOES NOT work. Nothing lights up on the LED panel for radio.

And yes, I pulled the radio/heater module out to check connection. All is connected correctly and tightly. It appears that there is one connection in radio/heater module that goes to radio only.

Well my radio fuse in my '97 is under the dash on the firewall on the driver side. Pull the cover off and you'll see a diagram of the fuse locations.

I know where the fuses are.* Which one is for the radio.

Thanks again.
Thank you. I know where the fuses are. Which one is for radio?

The one for the radio is tied to the dash/interior lights and key-in-ignition/headlights-on chimer if I remember correctly.

Radio fuse.

Everything else operates properly.

Horror of horrors. Could my radio be dead? Is this possible?

I know it was that way with earlier cars, but I haven't had to do a fuse in the '01 yet.

Pull the radio out of the dash and see if the connector came loose. I don't suppose the fuse would be on or around the radio itself, would it?

Gone elsewhere in search of a pleasant Taurus/Sable forum run by people who actually care.

No, there's no fuses behind the radio itself.

If you did not find it already, there are several fuses affecting radio operation.

In the central junction box (inside, driver's side):
F2.27 10A (hot in start or run)
F2.16 15A (hot all the time)
F2.11 15A (hot in run or ACC)
F2.37 15A (hot in start)

All of the above connect to at least the head unit (control panel).

In the battery junction box (under the hood):
F1.17 20A (hot all the time - power to the RCU & CD changer)
F1.27 5A (power antenna control)

These affect the RCU where the radio and amplifiers are.
