radio won't turn after i set off the alarm

My sound system was working fine, then I set off the alarm on it now it won't turn on. the dealer said there is no code for it. has anyone had this happen. Is there anything I can do? Before I start looking at new head units!!

Re: radio won't turn after i set off the alarm

Ok the first thing to try, and it sounds strange, is to disconnect the battery for 30 to 60 seconds.
Turns out sometimes the radio looses it's brains and hangs.

Let us know if that does something. HTH

Disconnect the battery and hold the terminals on the cables together for about 30 seconds. This may reset it. Also check the fuse on the back of the head unit.

There is no alarm on the radio and there is no interconnection with the alarm system and the sound system so it was just a fluke that it failed to come on after you set off the alarm. The Battery reset trick should restore normal operation. If it does not then report back and we can try a few other things.
