Power to the radio but no sound coming out of the speakers previous owner said speakers work how do I find out


Ok, so you bought a used radio. Did you test it when previous owner gave it to you or you bought it through mail?
If you received with a not declared failure, you should it send back and claim your money.
Else, sorry, you should send it to repair

'96 maxima with no tail light, no radio power, sometimes the car's interior light does not work too. Would like to try and fix it myself. Your help will be highly appreciated.


Taillights: Check 7.5A fuse 14 in the fuse block

Radio: Check 7.5A fuse 40 and 10A fuse 21 in the hybrid electric control unit. If you have the midline radio with separate amplifier, check 15A fuse 25 as well. If you have the premium radio, check 15A fuse 22 rather than 25. The wiring may have gotten mangled during the earlier speaker installation.

I have a 96 escort with no radio ;the wires are there,but i want to install a new radio.i don't know what wires hook up to the new radio


Hi, if the connector is still there, it is easiest to purchase a ford wiring adapter. The adapter will match the factory wires to an aftermarket stereo. If the connector is gone, see your factory wire colors below. Please let me know if you need additional help or have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Did it fail while you had vehicle, or like this when you bought it? Could be bad radio or wiring harness was chopped up when previous owners had an aftermarket radio installed. They probably just slapped the OEM radio back in when selling car. And didn't put all the OEM wiring back in.

No sound from radio


Check to see that the speakers are still wired to run right off the radio. If the previous owner had amps installed they may have them set up to only run through an amp.

Gm 32 pin


then you have a problem with the wires that were probably cut during that install from the previous owner, and you need to undo them and reconnect them again, cause they aren't staying connected. I am almost sure he cut something to cause this when all that needed to be done was to use a wiring connector made for his car to adapt to the new radio when it was replaced.
