My 2001 Toledo got flooded the other day and the radio stopped working. Went to the mechanic, who fixed the flooding issues but told me the radio was dead and had to be replaced.

Im an electronics guy, but I have no idea where to find information related to the radio, so that I could open it up and try to fix it on my own.

My other option is to get a new radio, but how do I know what radios are compatible with my car?

TLDR: i need to fix or switch my radio, but dont know where to find information on it to do either.

  • Flooded as in "wet"? Have you checked the fuses? – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Feb 8 '18 at 1:10
  • Flooded as in "I was bucketing water out of the car floor", but the mechanic checked the fuses and all the cables leading to the radio. It just won't power up – BlueMoon93 Feb 8 '18 at 1:26
  • As an "electronics guy" why not remove the covers and clean and dry it out then test it again? – Solar Mike Feb 8 '18 at 10:16
  • @SolarMike That will be my first approach. Will keep you posted. – BlueMoon93 Feb 8 '18 at 16:34
