I have a '73 stored in a garage and went to jump the battery because battery had died. Seems someone in the house put the jumper cables on backwards. My VDO volt gauge smoked before I knew something was wrong. Now my aftermarket radio will not work. Have not tried to pinpoint problem yet. What I wanted to know was if this kind of screwup will fry the radio for good or are there fusable links that will blow 1st? Thanks.

if you're lucky the radio line fuse (usually 1-2 amp) popped and your radio's OK. Had this happen on my Datsun truck at long term airport parking. They left the dome light on for a week and killed the battery. Then they connected the jumper cables backwards. That's when I found out there was a fuse on the radio itself that wasn't shown in the owners manual or the shop manual! Radio was fine.

Hope yours is too...check the in line fuse in the radio's hot lead.

Cheers

there are a couple of different fuses to check. 3,4, and 12.

Check to make sure the hazards work and your reverse lights work(if it is a stick). if they don't it could be number 6. Does the interior light come on? no? try number 2.

Hell, check all of them.
