If the unit is powered on then your problem is in the output. Check your aftermarket harness to the speakers. If you did not buy a harness then something is wired incorrectly. A good way to check which speaker is which is buy using a AA battery. Simply touch 2 leads to the positive and negative of the battery and when you have a correct connection the speaker will make a hissing sound.

SOURCE: Put in new stereo in 2001 Pontiac Sunfire now have no panel

Did you use a special wire harness? GM connected some computer system wiring with the stereo system, so if you replace this, there will be no chime when you open your door with the headlights on or keys in the ignition...and some other warning stuff. This special harness can be bought, but it is expensive (around 80-150$). Go to electronics store and ask for one. Anyways, hope this helps.

SOURCE: Were is the thermostat located in a Pontiac Sunfire 2000?

Hi:
Your thermostat is located under the thermostat housing, which is what the upper radiator hose clamps to on the top of your engine. Basically, you need to start with a cold engine, drain your radiator, then unclamp the upper radiator hose from the engine. Remove the bolts from the thermostat housing, and gently tap on it to remove it. clean up the mounting surfaces on both the engine and the housing, and install a new thermostat, and new gasket. tighten to proper torque, reconnect the radiator hose, then refill up the radiator and cooling system.

How do I fix the clock display on my 1999 Pontiac Sunfire?


It appears to be that the radio clock display has malfunctioned, and is due for a replacement radio, which could be an aftermarket or oem radio, maybe found at a junk yard.

Tools required for oem replacement radio, torx keys set.

Before working on the radio or other electronics, disconnect the battery cables with 8mm wrench.

Replacing the oem radio is much easier, if you obtain oem radio, compared to aftermarket radio, due to being direct fit.

The radio is same for 1995 to 1999 Pontiac Sunfire and the Chevy Cavalier, regardless of sub models, such as SE,GT, VL,VLX,Z24. etc.

Parts needed for the the aftermarket radio install :Stereo assembly, stereo wiring harness adapter, radio antenna adapter, and dash install kit.wiring diagram for the wire colors / functions, along with tools, such as torx key set, screwdrivers,wire crimper, wire stripper, double ended wiring connectors, hair dryer.

The oem stereo removal video is for the 2000 to 2005 Sunfire / Cavalier, but are the same or very similar procedures.

Stereo crackles


A little more detail. Do you mean speakers are crackling. Most likely blown the factory speakers. These are very cheaply made. And if you play music loud often they will blow easy. Is it completely stock system. If you relaced your stereo with an after market it may be the wrong ohms for the speakers or to much power and you need better quality speakes. If not coming in clearly make sure your antenna is tight and your wire harness are are connected securely. Let me know more details. Do you have infinity sound or not. Any after market components. Or completely stock.

TRYING TO FIX A DOOR CHIME ON A 2002 PONTIAC SUNFIRE. NEED TO LOCATE WHERE DOOR CHIME IS LOCATED ON THIS VEHICLE


In most vehicles the "chime" is located in the dash around where your 4 way flaser is. It could simply be the door switch also which is a little button that depresses when you close the door to open the circuit shutting the dome light and chime off. They are easy to change and inexpensive. Hope that helps.
