    Put a new battery in the truck 3 weeks ago. Driving one afternoon and the radio went black out of the blue and wouldn't turn back on. Went out to start it yesterday and the truck was dead again so I jumped it off and ran it up to the shop to confirm that the alternator was bad. Had the alternator replaced, and had to jump it off again b/c the battery was so drained. Noticed on the way home that the radio still wouldn't work. Taking the battery back today to the place I got it to have it recharged and will reinstall tonight. Could the lack of juice in the battery still be the reason for the radio not working? I checked the fuse in the box under the hood and it's still good. Any other suggestions? Would greatly appreciate some help with this one. Thanks all!

    There is one inside by the kick panel and one under the hood. The one under the hood has a 7.5 amp fuse that says its for the radio. If there is another fuse location I should check please let me know, but that's the only "radio" fuse that I saw on the diagrams for both boxes.

    What year is your truck? And make sure the terminal contacts are on tight.

    Currently there is no battery in the truck. After I jumped it off at the repair shop(with a new alternator in it), I got it home and removed the battery(which had been purchased in Feb). Took the battery in this morning to the shop I bought it from and he confirmed it was dead, and gave me a new replacement. We'll see what happens this afternoon I guess.

    Is there another radio fuse I need to check other than the one in the box under the hood?
