Having problems with your 1983 Jeep CJ7 ?
No power to stereo after front speakers (under dash) got wet
\015 We have a 1979 CJ7 which has 4 non-stock speakers. Two infinities in rear and two old Clarions mounted in box up under front dash. Drove through rainstorm yesterday, noticed water coming from under dash around speakers and onto floorboard. Entire unit acted as if it shorted out and no longer has power going to head unit. Checked fuses inside...are there fuses under hood in box marked "Motorcraft"? What is the best way to troubleshoot this issue?\015
Pull the radio and check power lead. you may have a problem there or, if water got into radio the board may be shorting out. Some radios have a fuse in the wire and one inside the radio itself. Make sure that ground is still good as well, you can bet if water got there once, it has come in to a lesser degree, and went unnoticed many times before.
