Dodge durango stereo

I have a 98 dodge durango and am looking to install a stereo new head unit as well as subs and amp. So my question is how will the stock amplifier effect the sound if at all?

The stock amp would be useless if you are going to uprate the rest of your system. Because you will play it louder. You could use it to drive the front door speakers, but I would remove it and fit an upgraded item that will actually improve your system.If you are going to install a new head unit then there is a very real chance that the amp in the new head unit will be better than the one installed by the manufacturer.

You can buy adaptor plugs that allow a simple hook up at most car stereo places.  However, when you increase the power going to the speakers you also have to replace the speakers to handle the higher power or you'll toast them.

I don't think you have to remove the timing chain, to do head gaskets. if you are talking about the distributor, you could use a paint marker to mark indicator marks on intake and on this distributor

My radio volume just stopped working but you can see the channels and change from different stations what is wrong with it


If you have volume but cannot control it, this is a common problem. The volume is optical so it may just have dust in it, but I have had zero luck cleaning them. The only solution I know is to replace the whole head unit.
If you have an HK factory stereo with no volume at all, and the four channels went out one at a time, the amp in the trunk has failed. Another common problem. The amp is on the driver side above the wheel well. You have to remove the driver side rear deck speaker to get the trunk lining off without tearing it. The screws that hold in the speaker are beneath the speaker grill in the rear deck. Good luck getting a 15-year-old speaker grill up without breaking the snaps. Slide a putty knive in from the sides to try to release them, but they will break anyway.
If the amp has failed, you can just bypass the amp but you will have no subs or tweeters. I did that while looking for a good deal on a junkyard amp. You can buy a new HK amp from BMW but they are prohibitively expensive. You could buy an alternate brand amp and add crossover circuits to power the subs and tweeters if you are really handy with electronics.

If you have an HK system in your BMW and you replace the head unit, use the antenna power wire from the new stereo as the 'on' signal for your HK amp in the trunk. Your FM may not work quite as well because the BMW head unit communicates with the antenna amplifier. Also, if you have a BMW CD changer in your trunk, no other head unit will communicate with that other than the original BMW head unit.
Other than the CD changer and the antenna amplifier, the wiring adapter that you can get from Crutchfield or from Amazon will make the stereo head unit replacement plug-and-play.
You may need a special five-sided wrench to get the old stereo out. You can buy that wrench on line if you can't force some other tool into those two cap screws that hold the stereo in.

A have a cd stuck in my dodge durango how can i get it out?


You'll need to remove the stereo from the vehicle. Now remove the screws along the top of the unit and remove the top - some units have the sides and top as 1 piece. reconnect the poer to the stereo and push the eject. Sometimes the case on the stereo jams the cd up and removing the case is the only way to get it out - I've even had to manually turn the gearing to eject the cd. Next I would replace the stereo - once they start jamming up, they usually don't stop. However, you can try re - inserting another cd with the unit out after re - installing the case to see if it will co -operate with you.
Good luck!!
