Hey Everyone, my 2016 Colorado's LCD Radio wont come on. Ive tried turning off the truck completely, turning it on etc and it wont come back up. There is a video that comes up on a google search that suggests its a Fuse issue but if I mess with it I could void the warranty. Anyone else have any experience with this?

Thanks!

I don’t see how changing a fuse could void your warranty the whole point of them is to protect the system I would think if you put the same amp fuse in it I don’t see how it would cause any problems.

if it is a fuse there is always a reason it blew. 99 percent of the time if it wasn't your wifes hair dryer its a bad reason. I would let the dealer check it out under warranty. Also, if it was a fuse and they change it and nothing else, it will document the repair (or lack of repair) to cover you in the future.

I have in my life seen fuses blow for no apparent reason, I have chalked it up to a bad fuse but you never really know for sure. And this is VERY rare.

I Agree, unlike the old days when there was poor voltage regulation in cars (talking before 1980's) fuse don't blow without reason now a days. Of course there is an odd chance that it was just a bad fuse to begin with. But definitely have the dealer check it out so it's document barring you're still under warranty (IE under 36 months or 36k mileage)
