    I cannot get my Sony CD/AM/FM radio to turn on or be controlled from the captains seat.  Any suggestions?

      Have you checked power and ground going to radio?

      Also check the switch on the console to be sure it is working......breaker OK.

      I have checked the 12v power at the back of the radio and it is good. The switch is working and the breaker has been reset (even tho it was not tripped).

      @zeke5550, I don't know your radio, but most if not all radios have an inline fuse (which is unlikely if you've tested at the radio for 12v power) or a blade fuse in the back of the radio.  

      If you have power everywhere in the boat including to the radio, and fuses are good, and you've confirmed the breaker/switch is fine, and no grounding issues, I suspect you have an electronic issue with the radio itself.

      On my boat you have to switch on the ACC switch on the panel to get power to the radio.

      If your particular stereo has a removable faceplate, check to see if there is a reset function on the back of it or the front of the radio itself with faceplate removed. Mine has to be reset after loss of memory power when batteries removed over winter.
