Stereo not working after battery change


Recommended Posts

Replaced both battery’s for my 16’ VLX.  The stereo will not turn on via the screen to the right. Any suggestions?

I had a similar issue on mine a few months back. Not after a battery change but from the negative cable vibrated off the battery so it wasn’t charging. I chased every wire down, checked every fuse, and connection. No answers. After charging the batteries with my charger the next day it came back on. Hasn’t happened again. Only thing I could come up with is the amp’s shutoff from low voltage and for some reason finally reset. Double check you got all the cables attached back on the batteries correctly. I know dumb suggestion but ask me why I recommend that. 😂 Follow the big positive one from the battery to the amp’s. There is a huge 200-300 amp fuse somewhere inline. Maybe that blew for some reason. Make sure the batteries are fully charged. All I got for ya. Keep us posted if you figure it out. Next time mine does it I’ll have more info.
