Make sure you are using a 12volt DC system in both units. It may sound simply but an AC sub may need an inverter. Also check grounds.

My amplifier for my subs is tied into my rear speaker wire with RCA adapters hi touched the RCA adapter accidentally to the speaker box positive negative and it arced now I have no sound from my radio


You probably trashed the output transistors in the radio. You may have lucked out and only blew a fuse. If the fuses are good, then say hello to a new radio.

On 2001 Crown Vic, radio lights are on, channels change,etc but no audio. Fuse issue or any other possibilities?


sounds like your speakers aren't connected properly. check your speaker leads coming from your radio and make sure they are positive to positive and negative to negative. if you're using an external amplifier,check your RCA cables and your speaker outputs on the amp. make sure thr remote turn on lead is connected, otherwise the amp won't even power on.
hope that helped, good luck

How to hook up car radio to an amp when radio does not have RCA Jacks


They make a type of Amplifier that uses high level input from the speaker outputs. Contact a company called Crutchfield.com for details and prices. You ca also have a radio shop install preamp output RCA jacks to the factory radio, do an Internet search for shops that do this type of retrofitting.

My 93 Boneville CD Player does not work, the radio works fine but it will not play CD's, also how would i install a set of speakers (subwoofers)


the cd player is bad and you can hook up subs through a rca hook up that you can hook to your speaker wires in the trunk the adapter is like 20 bucks at radio shack or local sound installer or buy an after market cd player cause yours will never work again and run rca's off the back of the radio to your trunk

1997 Crown Vic blows radio fuses


The quickest way to find a short circuit is by putting a bulb in place of the fuse. Anytime the time the bulb lights there is a load. And if the load is a shorted wire the brightness of the bulb will give you a hint. So while you're at it, finding a 'short' is a quicky...keep your eyes on the bulb. gotcha!

1997 Crown Vic blows radio fuses


Try checking all the grounds for the radio, over time they can weeken. If that doesn't work, put in a new ground wire with a heavier gauge, that should fix it. It sounds like a ground problem.

Good luck, Daniel
