AM FM radio Compact Disc player o.k. for 30 sec after start, then nothing. Fuses o.k.


Maybe a shorted speaker causing the power amplifier inside the radio to shut down or a speaker wire shorted to chassis and last the internal amplifier of the radio cd set faulty by itself... set volume to zero power it off take out the radio cd set; remove the speaker iso plug leaving the power plug only in and power it on if necesary turn again the volume down to zero and wait if it keeps turned on it a speaker problem if it shut itself off again then you go for a repair or a new one

Radio is on and I can see the numbers, but I can't hear it; however, I can hear the CD..


sounds like an antenna problem to me. It might have come loose from the radio. A car stereo shop or dealer could help on this one.

2008 Nissan Altima radio (AM/FM/CD) does not respond to buttons except on/off volume. It was playing an FM station (cant't tune/scan) and now plays a CD that won't eject.


2008 Altima radio-the sound just quit working. Everything else seems to be OK. I can change the radio stations, but no sound. Is there a fuse that could be bad?

I have come to find out that in the 90's auto makers started installing factory amplifiers in their cars so they could use low wattage stereos in the dash. It's usually a blue wire off the stereo that runs the amp, maybe it couldve become disconnected? I also know that even if you put in an after market stereo, this wire must be hooked up or you'll get no sound from the speakers. hope this helps.

May just be the wiring of the car or maybe something is loose or became disconnected. If the radio has been removed then that's an easy problem to get. It may also be the anti-theft system. Some vehicles can be very difficult to install a stereo system or any other add-on because of the way it's wired for the anti-theft.
I have also heard that some of the Jettas had wiring problems that were hard to trace. I know someone who had one that was an early 2000 model.
Try to find out if there were any recalls about that, but I would probably just get another one installed at some place that's experienced with radio installations because they would know how to wire these thing in. Hope this helps
