    are the speakers stock? there maybe a couple different options here,
    the stereo's mosfets are shorting out or blown speakers causing the radio to reset. checking speakers is easy part 3.5 - 4.5 ohms should be nominal rating any lower than 3.5 the speakers are blown, if with in those ranges it is a radio fault. and an after market radio will suit the needs as factory radios are extremely over priced.

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 on but no sound after installing after market subs


to create a spark you must have had power connected somewhere. Did you have your radio turned on when you connected? if yes you may have blown the amp in the radio. If no then you have other issues with wiring and possible damage.
It's one of those instances where I'd need to be there to diagnose it.
Start by double checking the stereo is working, check its wiring is correct try each speaker connection in turn. If the stereo works and all the outputs work then double check the amps wiring and try a normal speaker connected to it. You must get the picture by now, you need to identify the source of the fault. to help you better I'd need a wiring diagram.

2003 ford expedition, eddie bauer, cd player has stopped working. I took the cd player out. Can I just replace the cd player instead of replacing the whole radio unit? I can't seem to find anywhere to...


Unfortunately not. The first thing I would try to do is get the cd player fixed by an audio store in your area. If it cannot be fixed, you will have to replace your radio unit. Let me throw this at you. I have invested in a whole new sound system in my vehical. I am not saying that all of your speakers need to be replaced, but an aftermarket stereo unit is more fuctional and stylish than than your stock stereo unit. Hope this helps! Please rate 4 thumbs up!
