I was working on fixing my dome light in my car (1988 325i convertible), and when I went to turn on my car to see if I fixed the light, my radio wasn't working. It never turned on, it never lit up, nothing. This is really pissing me off to because I can't listen to my music anymore and I would go crazy if I didn't have any music. Any ideas?

Sounds like a fuse if there is no power and if you have power and the code prompt is visible in radio, then you need to reset code.

I entirely replaced the stock dome lights with a mod I did - 3 rows of 8 high power LEDs per row - 24 Leds per dome light meaning 48 LEDs glowing.. hehe I can see up to 4 meters around the car at night (can you imagine insde?)

...and In the process I accidentaly short circuited the system there and burned the fuse and radio didn't work
