Radio not turning on! HELP

Hey guys I have an 06 hemi. I changed my cigarette lighter fuse and now my radio will not turn on turn on. I have checked all the fuses nothing all the fuses are good. When I turn the key to on position, I hear a relay click under the hood. Could it be that?? I read different forums and tried everything. Also disconnected the batter terminals and waited for 15 mins and still nothing. Help!!!

Have you checked the IOD fuse? Its under the hood and its poorly labeled (at least on my 2010) that the fuse is "spare" on the underside of the cover to the fuse box. It doesn't help that its housed in a funky plastic handle, that makes it easy to pull out, to help you think its a convient spare that Chrysler provided you.

When I pulled that IOD fuse (thinking it was spare) to replace my burnt out cigarette lighter fuse also. Then my radio didn't work. I pulled out the O.M. and soon learned the label on the underside of the fuse box cover was wrong, that it was the IOD fuse I had pulled out. The funky plastic handle is there for maintenance, to make it easier to pull the IOD fuse and air bag fuses for maintenance.

Once I replaced the fuse, the radio still did NOT come back, but I got an "IOD Fuse Out" message on the EVIC. I went back and realized the funky handle on the fuses is decieving, that the fuses weren't seated and I had to push down hard on the funky handle to seat the fuses. After that, all was well with the world again, radio worked fine.

Oh, IOD stands for something like Ignition Off Delivery, I probably remember wrong, but its the constant 12V supply to the car when its off, that the radio needs, I don't think its the main supply to the radio, but for some reason the radio won't turn on without it.

That is the same set of fuses that you need to pull to reset your U-connect should it stop working, that is assuming you have U-connect.

Must bring this back up, because I just did the same thing. Used the "spare" fuse to fix a trailer problem.

But now I replaced the fuse and still no radio. Anything else to check?

Now Gone: TJ 00 4 liter, 2" RE Lift and shocks, a few extra skidplates, and not much else, 'cause all the money goes to:

Now HIS: XK 07 Limited Hemi, 2" RR lift and shocks, JK Rubicon wheels (255/75 r17 BFG MT), 1.5" Spidertrax spacers, Rocky Road Supersliders, Mopar heavy-duty rails and roof rack. Get Lost 4x4 Rear Tire Carrier. 4xGuard Belly Skid. Oh, and a spiffy dash mat.

I solved it. Not only are the fuses in the yellow holder (marked "spare") important, but the 2 30-amp fuses next to them. Somehow I had swapped them out.

Put 2 30-amp fuses in the black removable holder and now I have my radio back.

Yea, because of the funky handle to make it easy to pull out to do servicing and troubleshooting, the fuses in the handle sits lower than the other fuses. When I press those handle back in, I thought I had them fully seated, but still had problems. Went back again, pushed the handles down harder, and it sinks in deeper and seats the fuses fully and everything goes back to working fine again.
