I'm trying to install an aftermarket cd player in my 97 explorer when I wiring in the new deck to the speakers they don't no sound comes through the stock speakers is there an app I need to find?

you can buy an adapter the plugs into the factory wiring and the new radio so you don`t cut and butcher the wiring of the car. it covers the wiring for the speakers as well. going by your photo this looks like a bad wiring and splice job.

Cd play wires have been cut and dont know what the wires are?

one thing I learned as an electrician is to never expect a certain colored wire to mean anything specific. If you do not have an electric circuit tester get one and I'll explain to you what to do. First lets just say you're installing a basic standard cd player with 2 front channels and 2 rear channel outputs, and the factory system had 2 front and rear channels your wires are already in place and you don't need to run any new wires. Your new cd player's wires should be marked or you have an installation guide telling you what each wire does now you need to identify the vehicles wiring. You vehicle will have a ground wire, an antenna jack, a power wire that is constantly powered for the memory/clock, a power wire that is hot when the key is on to operate the player and 4 sets of speakers wire a positive and negative lead. Use your circuit tester to identify both power wires. Install your ground wire first or you risk shorting out or blowing the inline fuse if there is one on the main power wire to the player, next your antenna, then your main power, followed by the constantly powered wire for the memory. At this point your radio when turned on should light up, you can look in the trunk and identify both of the rear speaker wires to save you some time, you can figure out the front 2 after the rear speakers are installed by turning the fader to the front and connecting your cd players speaker wires to them there is a 50/50 shot so if you need to correct it. I would always recommend soldering wires together and using shrink tubing to shield them. Wires that are just twisted together or crimp connected can come loose and cause arcing from a poor connection which creates excessive heat and could potentially burn up your wiring or short out the radio or other vehicle components. good luck with your installation

My radio in my Yukon turns on but no sound comes out of the speakers. i installed an after market cd player and i still cant get any sound on the speakers

It sounds like the amp is not functioning on the radio. If you install and after market cd player the radio still won't play because it's the same amp.

Now, if you would change the radio and it still won't play, it sound like it would be the wiring to the speakers. Speakers usually don't burn out, but anything is possible.

I hope this helped.

Trying to get radio out of a 2006 Subaru Baja to check speaker wiring and cant get dash cover off

It's probably the speaker, not the wiring. I've got one speaker that goes in and out, mostly out. Turns out the diaphragm is getting stuck to the magnet. After seeing the wiring checking your speaker connection would be a much easier place to start.

We hooked up an external speaker to the contact points and got sound, plugged the original back in, no sound. A simple un-intentional patting to the speaker and it started working again.

Will probably be replacing soon.

As a side note, crutchfield sent me some nice installation instructions when I purchased a new wire harness to put in a new radio. Pretty detailed and with photos. Getting in there takes a bit of work, but trying to trace wires would be painful.

Im trying to install a cd player in my 2000 mazda protege but no store carrys the connector for it. i need to know what the factory wire color codes are so i can run the wires into the new cd player...

The player or radio coming out should have a sticker on it with a diagral. If not, the only two you need to worry about is the red and bla. They are the hot and grd. and are larger than the speaker wires. Get those two hooked up, put in a cd and turn it on. Then match up the speaker outputs to the correct speaker. Should be only one wire per speaker. If not, All speaker grounds are the same color and markings. Good Luc, Ned

Well, some how, the wiring for the front speakers didn't get hooked up or hooked up improperly. I assume it is a new cd player? If not, maybe it's the player itself.
