For this to happen, you will need to remove the entire top part of your car, clean out any debris that may be inside your radio module, and then clean out all of the gunk that may be inside it before putting it back together.

It’s important to thoroughly clean the radio module before putting it back in your car.

Procedures

If your Nissan Rogue radio is not working, here are some simple steps that you can take to fix it:

Look inside the radio that is located in the center console. It is a small box that has a volume control knob on it. Look inside the radio and see if there are any damaged wires inside the radio. If there is, you may want to have it checked by a qualified technician.

If you see any damage to any of the wires that are inside your radio, then try to repair them before putting the radio back together again by cutting off the damaged parts and putting in new ones.

If there are no damaged wires in the radio box, you can reassemble everything and put your car back together.

Once you have finished doing this, you should be able to turn on your radio and continue to use it as you normally would. If you still have trouble with your radio, you may want to consider taking it to a local mechanic for a more thorough examination.
