I was wondering if anyone has had any issues with their radio before and what did you do to resolve it. It has completely gone out in my van. I've checked all the fuses and unplugged the wiring harnesses and plugged them back in. The radio does receive power because the buttons light up, but no sound or static is heard. The radio screen is black. I really don't want to dish out $1000+ for a new one (factory or aftermarket). Please let me know if anyone has experienced the same issue and somehow resolved it themselves.

Get one from a salvage yard; make sure you have the security code. It should be only a couple hundred vs $1000 for new.

I've thought about it, but I figured it would be tough to find a radio considering it would probably be one of the first things gone from a junk yard. I called the dealership and they said the code+programming costs $135.

They arenot hard to find and often come with the code. Check eBay as well.
