Anyway to bypass my Bose Amplifier

I think I have shorted out my Bose Amplifier in my Aurora. The radio is working but I have no sound coming out of any of the speakers, and I wasn't sure if there was anyway to bypass the Amplifier? This is what I was thinking ... I have an amp that I want to install with 2 subs but I was thinking that maybe I could not even use the radio and just use my Zune connected straight to amp and finding a way to hook up the factory speakers with my amp. I tried to hook up the zune to the amp ealier with just my subs connected but it sounded like ****. Any ideal or help with this thanks.

Not too sure what you are trying to do but just buy a aftermarket deck..for example for 100 bucks jvc has a nice deck with remote that plays mp3 and even has a jack right on the faceplate for a mp3 player.then throw your subs in the trunk hook up the amp and bingo banging beat.if u have the aruroa with the battery under the back seat its even easier

08 Nissan Altima radio comes on but no sound


If the radio display and functions seem to working normally, except for the zero sound output, the problem could be at the audio amplifier circuit, wirings and the speakers. This may be the case if you have the bose audio system installed. This system have two 15 amp fuses at the fuseblock in the engine compartment. You can begin the checks from there. But if the system is the non-bose audio system, the radio unit itself should be thoroughly investigated.

The best way to install an aftermarket radio in your vehicle is to install new speaker wires. To bypass the amp takes quite a bit of work and the factory speaker wires are too small for a performance system.

Installed a Sony Xplode into a 99 Blazer and everything on the radio works but will not play through the speakers


The Bose system is complex - it has an amplifier separate from the Bose compatible radio. This amplifier takes low level audio signals from the radio, not full driver outputs from a replacement radio, and by trying to use the replacement radio you may have blown the amplifier. If that is the case, you may not be able to go back to the original radio.
The only option you may have with the replacement will be to find the Bose amplifier and bypass the connections to feed the replacement radio outputs directly to the speakers. This may not be as simple as it sounds, as distribution to the various speakers comes from the amplifier, not the radio, and the wiring from the amplifier to the radio may not have all the wires you need. Before going on, you had better get a wiring diagram for the Bose system (service manual or Alldatadiy.com).

Bose radio comes on but no sound in my 2004 chevy avalanche.Sometimes even with radio off you hear a popping sound come from speakers. thanks


First Visually check all your fuses. Does rig have amp for stereo by any chance? It sounds like amp is bad and/or fuse is blown. Amp is wired between radio and speakers, and a shorted amp would make crackling in speakers when radio is OFF

I JUST GOT A 98 CATERA , IT DIDN'T HAVE A RADIO IN IT , SO I ORDERED ONE OFF EBAY ,PUT IT IN ,TOOK TO DEALER TO HAVE IT UNLOCKED & PROGRAMED , AND IT COMES ON ,SHOWS THE STATIONS & THE CLOCK WORKS...


If the system you bought is marked BOSE, it does not have any onboard amplifier power. The only powered radios for the Catera are units which only have AM/FM/Tape, all the CD units are Bose systems which used separate amps mounted on a tray in the trunk.
