2003 Mazda Protege5 - Radio and Dome Lights not working?

Asked by Nov 14, 2016 at 07:21 PM about the 2003 Mazda Protege5

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The radio and dome lights worked just fine on my car until recently. The
battery on my 2003 Mazda Protege5 just shorted out. We jumped the car
and it started working again, but the radio and dome lights did not. The
keyless entry is also dead, but can be done manually with the door.

I replaced the battery and had a mechanic check all the fuses, but
everything is intact. The moonroof and all other lights/features are working,
except for the radio (no display whatsoever), dome lights, and the key fobs.
Plus, there's nothing in the owner's manual about a security code for
rebooting this

Does anyone have any suggestions at all? I'm trying to sell the car and am
on a very tight time limit, so anything that you can suggest would be really
appreciated!

Due to the short, there may be issues with the input sensors to the BCM (Body Control Module) or the BCM itself could have been damaged. If you have the ability to do some research and find out what sensors feed the BCM and verifying they are functional you may want to start there. http://www.ehow.com/how_5026968_troubleshoot-body-control- module.html
