My wife spilled a drink on the radio in my 2007 Chevy Avalanche. Now the clock is the only thing working! What do you suggest I do?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Amy Mattinat, Owner and Author at Auto Craftsmen Ltd Most likely the radio is broken. Water and electricity don't go together. Sorry.

Amanda J. Pierce, MBA Jimmie, You may be able to seek out a radio head replacement at your local salvage yard. The moisture very well may have damaged the contacts on the inside of your radio.

Helaine Kurot, Owner/Technician at 360 Automotive Greetings, Start with checking the fuse for the radio. On some vehicles the clock and the radio itself are on seperate circuits. If the fuse is good, I would recommend taking it to a repair shop to have the radio removed and checked for further damage.

Lori Johnson, Owner and Instructor at Ladies Start Your Engines Jimmie, Unfortunately not much. You can wait and see if it dries and then starts working, but you may need to replace the radio. Good luck.
