Why is this happening and how do you fix it?

In my 1990 Nissan D21 Pickup, the Panasonic stereo model: CQ-RX200U stopped turning on. All fuses are intact. There is power getting to the stereo w/o it connected but after plugging the stereo in the battery lead only gives 1v.


Check for a bad wire from fuse to stereo. Check for a bad ground wire or ground connection. You can remove the stereo and connect it directly to the battery (using a fuse on the power side). Stereo works great, you have a wiring problem. The truck is old. You can get some new wires and connect the stereo directly to the battery using an inline fuse. Put a toggle switch to kill power when you are not using the stereo.
