Radio wont turn on in 2016 chevy malibu

Asked by Feb 15, 2019 at 09:33 AM about the 2016 Chevrolet Malibu

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I own a 2016 chevy Malibu, to which experienced a dead battery with the
cold weather that occurred two weeks prior. After jump starting the car,
everything worked relativley well again. However, after turning it on today,
the car started up as normal, but the radio touch screen did not light up and
display chevy like it usually does. This was a bit odd as it was working
perfectly fine the day before. After warming up the car and driving, i turned
off the car and back on to see if it was just the cold. No success. Any
thoughts? The screen itself looks like it turns on, but no picture comes up
and no music comes on. Is it possible that the cold is causing the screen to
not function correctly and will temporarily be unavailable until the car warms
up a bit more? Additionally, my back up camera doesnt appear either.

Its probably your MyLink system being stupid. Go to a dealership if your under warranty and get it fixed but if your not go and disconnect battery for 5-10 minutes pull the fuse and reconnect everything. If that doesn't work take it to the dealer
