SOURCE: The stereo in my 2008 Silverado has very low

If it has a premium sound system some of them have a small amplifier for the over all system and the rear out put may have lost signal out put power.If it does not have an amplifier then I would replace the head unit(deck)with a brand that you like so you have total control,and no that does not sound right.Hope this helps

How do I solve volume problem with my 2008 mercury inland stereo after changing battery will not produce sound?


The code was given to you when the car was purchased new along with the owner's manual. It is unique to the radio and is not shared online or at least very rarely. Your best bet is to try and buy the code on ebay or go to www.radio-codes.com

Why is my volume low in my 2004 pontiac Grand Prix? I am trying to install a pioneer fh-x700bt and the volume is really low even on max volume you can't really here it. I need help


If you are replacing the factory radio with this there are two issues that could be causing you grief. First, the radio only has 14 watts RMS power output. This is rather low by standards. Additionally, that is factored into a 4-ohm speaker load. Chances are that the factory speakers are 8-ohm, which will cause further loading. You should consider replacing the speakers with 4-ohm and possibly add an amplifier to the system to achieve optimal performance.

I got a 91 chevy pick up with a cilfford, the radio works but hardly any sound comes out of speakers. I got a new radio and its the same. All speakers play buy sound is very low. I was told it was do to...


posted 6 times.
run new wires from new radio to speakers
or bench test your radio (easy) with your speakers.
if still low the speakers are bad or just dirt cheap , car speakers.
try new speakers, if weak now the wires are bad, try new wires
id still weak the radio is bad. (or just a cheap radio)
and define weak, to me most radios are way too load.
but to others, all are weak until 1000watt amp is added.
weak is a relative term. as is hardly any.
do not quote persons guessing, its just a wild guess. they can see car either, do the tests your self and find TRUTH.

to bench test, (modern way)
1: 12vdc 1amp power pack, or battery 12v. and ground.
2: connect up USB mem,. with some mp3s. on stick.
3: connect one good speaker (KNOWN GOOD)
to one of 4 speaker lines. (2 wires)
4: push play, does it sound good, yes, move to next speaker port.
ok , the radio is good. so
try it in the car, is it now low volumn
yes, then move that test speaker to the car speaker that is low.
still low, yes, then the wiring is bad.

easy huh?,,, takes only , a test speaker.

if no usb use, cassette, if no that , use CDDA disk( store bought real)
if none of that us the radio to test. connect a test antenna.
tune in Am or fm. bam.

How do i fix the amp on my radio?


When you turn the radio all the way up to max volume does the amp turn off ? you could have a short or a blowen speaker which is making the amp go into protection mode. i would disconnect all speakers then try one speaker by itself and see if you have full sound again... go through this process untill the sound stops again.

Car radio has no sound


When you have no sound on the radio the first thing to checkl is the speakers. Using the smallest voltage battery you can get hold of and handle easily (AA or AAA) conect +(ve) and -(ve) terminals of the battery to the 2 speaker connections. If the spreaker is OK it will produce a cacling sound. If non, replace.
If speakers are OK the trace connection from radio/amp to speakers. If OK then radio needs attention.

It could be a bad amp. Those come with a factory amp usally right behind the radio. Hopefully you can find a used one from a scrap yard. Click Here to search in your area.

Im having the same problem! No pop, just a hum, and my volume dial won't adjust. Like the actual dial isn't working. I can't use radio, cd, or aux. Silence SUCKS.
