Actually you need to hook up the remote wire to the amplifier, its blue with a white tracer i believe, i had the same problem, do all the speakers work when you turn on the radio? they should, if not then you a wiring issue from the unit, if they do you need to hook up the amplfier

Well, some how, the wiring for the front speakers didn't get hooked up or hooked up improperly. I assume it is a new cd player? If not, maybe it's the player itself.

I have a cd/radio player from a 200 dodge van, and I want to put it in my 1998 Ram truck ?


If the radios do not have the same connections on them, you can buy a wiring harness from a car stereo dealer in your area. If you are lucky, the radios will have the same connectors, and the one radio will just plug into the other vehicle and work fine. cd-radio-player-from-200-dodge-van-want-21syibu3fgwpdxocjnkpw0ib-3-0.jpg cd-radio-player-from-200-dodge-van-want-21syibu3fgwpdxocjnkpw0ib-3-1.jpg cd-radio-player-from-200-dodge-van-want-21syibu3fgwpdxocjnkpw0ib-3-2.jpg

I have a 98 dodge ram 2500 I installed a aftermarket radio and have power but no sound please help


Sounds like you hooked the wires up wrong. Crutchfeild.com sells the direct plugs that go from the deck to the stock wiring harness. Its a good investment. But check your wires.

Dodge radio starts then shuts off


Hi Davis,

I had the same problem with Dodge Grand Caravan as well. I have a 2001 GCV and these radios go out all the time, plus each speaker has separate amps which some speaker will stop working. You will need a new stereo, however the dealership will charge you over $350 for the same replacement. I chose to go to BestBuy and buy a new Stereo for around $100 which has iPod connections which is a plus.
Next problem!!! Since each speaker has its own amp, in order to get the new stereo to work, I had to install a relay by tapping into the passenger side kicker panel master amp power supply to bypass the chip. Best Buy guy will know what to do. I suggest install the stereo yourself with a kit and go back to install an amp bypass relay switch. Hope that helps.

Stock Stereos **** and Dodge make is difficult to go aftermarket.....Good Luck

Installing a sony cdx-gt07 cd player in a 2000 dodge


In the mix of wires there will be a constant wire. this is usually labeled on the back of your deck this is the wire that need to be hooked into the hot wire. this will provide constant power to the radio that will help it keep the time,position on cd when powered off and other info.

if you need anymore help just give me a shout
