    radio comes on but no sound "system fault"

    Good day.

    Ok I fell asleep and we had a downpouring rain THE TOP WAS DOWN !. The car seemed ok (no problems). So I cleaned all the water out and two days later when I started up my 93 allante the console displayed "System Fault". But she started up. then would not start up. Waited a few minutes then started up again but still system fault. I opened up the fuse/ battery panel and yep water. So I cleaned it out as best I can. Re started her up everything was ok except radio comes on but no sound thru speakers .

    1. Would this be a fuse issue ?.
    2. If so then which one.
    3. How can I get a manual since I don't have one .
    4. Any suggestions as to what the problem might be ?.

    HELP

    Word for the wise - if that ever happens again IMMEDIATLEY DISCONNECT THE BATTERY then start to dry where possible and allow to air dry for a few days before trying to start.

    I'm not certain for the 93 as I believe it is different than my 92. You can search on google or here for fuse locations. I did that before I managed to get a manual for my 90.

    Tony as the most recent ADAOTM award winner on the "other site" (I am a multiple winner unfortunately) I think you should invite him to participate.

    RENOB1995 - As owners of these fine, complicated automobiles, more information is better! I sent you a Private Message with a link to more information. There is a cross section of guys and gals that span both sites.
