Default Inop radio - what am I missing? - FIX

Swapped out all components from another operating car including:

- Radio receiver head unit
- CD/ radio at bottom of stack
- Amp under seat

There is apparantly no communication between SID and radio. The SID does turn on with time & temp indicators showing.

I am waiting for an airbag control module to arrive in the mail and the temp sensor is bad but I expect these inop items would not stop the radio from operating.

I checked all fuses in 3 box locations.

Suggestions?

A brief prayer for help from the holy spirit led me to check the on-star fuse in the trunk which drives all the fiber optics. FIXED

The holy spirit? Maybe I should ask him/her about my car's problems. Lol.

Hey, you can always ask. Higher powers are there to point the way, not do the work.
