    I'm guessing you have a dead radio module, then

    If you can not get a radio display to appear on your screen, and the radio fuse looks OK, then the radio module is probably bad.

    the radio module is located behind the DSP amp

    It is relatively easy to repalace the radio module. You have to remove all of the electronics compoents in the trunk compartment: nav computer, TV module, CD changer, DSP amp, and telephone (if you have it. Then, you will remove a black felt liner and the radio module is mounted behind the liner. After that, it is just a simple plug-and-play replacement.

    The radio has a fuse on it, so I would check the fuse first. If the fuse does not fix it, then you likely need a new radio.

    Do you have DSP? Does the radio display?

    Does the radio display on the screen? If not, then you probably have a dead radio module.

    Do you have DSP? If so, you may have a dead DSP amp.

    If you do not have DSP, then the problem could be either the radio module or your amplifier.
