Bob, the fuse on the back of my radio was not a blade type, it was the old type contained in an in line fuse holder. it was VERY small, no auto parts stores carried them. I don't recall the size or amperage but it was only available at radio shack they came in a package of 5, so I would have spares however that did not fix the problem. I hope it arrives and can be installed by the end of next week, I have a trip planned. I guess I can still hear the TV it will not be through the surround sound .

If you run out of fuses, cut out the fuse holder that's there and install another one that you can get fuses for. I'd think a couple amps should be more than enough.

Hi Charles,

I thought you had noted you have a Genesis GT3.0. If so this is what the back of the radio looks like and it has a 15A Blade Type Fuse as I previously noted.

Bob. I owe you an adult beverage of your choice, I pulled the radio and just like the pic, there was the fuse and it was blown. Replaced it and I now have power, I am assuming everything else works. ( I will have to get the instructions out and play with it ). On my last attempt there is an inline fuse that is very small that was also blown, I don't know what that powers. The dealership said that they were replacing the old version of that radio, the back of mine looks just like your pic. I was unable to get the sat radio to power up, but that probably has something to do with the "MODE" button.Once again many thanks.

So I have to ask: What did that funny fuse you replaced go to??

I don't know what the small fuse protected. Right now everything seems to be working with the exception of my Satellite radio. I'm not sure if that is operator error, or the fuse went there. The wiring behind this radio is a cluster, when I pull the radio again if I can't get the satellite radio working I plan to clean it up. Does any one know the trick or button to push to power the satellite radio??? Not the one on the radio itself. If I had it my way I like to keep it simple, by having stand alone electronics. That way when something goes wacko you don't lose all functions. I have it that way on my boat, it may be old school but it works for me.
