Question about 2000 Jaguar Vanden Plas

1 Answer

Car Audio Fade

Recently purchased an 82 Lincoln - great car, except for the factory 8 track player. Installed new Pioneer DEH-3000IB head unit and system worked great, except the (rear) factory speakers sounded terrible - very distorted at any volume. I replaced the rear speakers (front ones sounded fine) with new Sonys. System sounds fantastic and works like a charm for about 30 minutes. After that, the volume quickly starts to fade down to nothing (any source). If I turn the unit off then back on, the system sounds great again for about 5 minutes then fades. Turn off then on, 5 minutes until fade. This is definitely a time issue, does not matter the volume I am listening or speed I am traveling. I am thinking this could be due to overheating, but I feel the unit and it is warm, normal warm, no where near "hot". Any advice?

Sounds like you got a bad stereo. it happens. i've i had the same thing happen, but the volume went up instead of down. check all the wires and make SURE they are all hooked up right.

Dodge infinity


The Infinity system includes a CD/cassette receiver or a CD receiver in the dash, and a complement of 7 speakers: 3-1/2" speakers in the dash (left, right), a 2-1/2" center dash speaker, two 6"x9" woofers in the front doors, and two 5-1/4" speakers in the rear doors. You'll have to remove a section of the dash to install a new stereo, as you do with the non-Infinity system. You'll need a special adapter to connect a new car stereo to the Infinity factory amp http://www.crutchfield.com/p_120CHTO02/Axxess-CHTO-02-Factory-Integration-Adapter.html?tp=3486

Rear speakers don't work after new head unit


There could be several reasons why the head unit for your car does not work. The most likely issue is that the head unit is not compatible with your stereo system. You can consult your vehicle owner's manual for speaker issues.---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The battery for my Kia Optima (2004) recently died. After that my rear speakers will not work. I've messed with the PIoneer (DEH-3200UB) stereo system audio options. All the fade and balance does is affect...


Obviously there's short somewhere or radio have short out. You can change the radio one from junk yard or test each speaker individually @ where the connect to the radio. Want to go even more advance. Get a mutlimeter and check it resistance or etc. If it's the radio that's faulty try unplugging it and plug. The purpose of fade is to fade and distribute the the sound in speakers there for won't help with the problem. You can even use a aa battery to check speaker. If speaker faulty get one out the junkyard.

Radio


Many cars with internal antennas do get this problem from corrosion setting into the ground connection outside the vehicle. The best solution for this is to purchase a new external antanna assembly with a mast and have it installed which will greatly improve your reception far better than when it was new

I am switching car stereos from a factory tape deck to a pioneer. what wires go where?


There is a plug unit that will greatly help you. It plugs into the factory harness and into your Prioneer unit. Walmart sells them as do most stereo shops, costs around $8. Money well spent and will save you much time and effort, not to mention you wont have to cut up the factory harness! Best Regards
