run new wires from new radio to speakers
or bench test your radio (easy) with your speakers.
if still low the speakers are bad or just dirt cheap , car speakers.
try new speakers, if weak now the wires are bad, try new wires
id still weak the radio is bad. (or just a cheap radio)
and define weak, to me most radios are way too load.
but to others, all are weak until 1000watt amp is added.
weak is a relative term. as is hardly any.
do not quote persons guessing, its just a wild guess. they can see car either, do the tests your self and find TRUTH.

to bench test, (modern way)
1: 12vdc 1amp power pack, or battery 12v. and ground.
2: connect up USB mem,. with some mp3s. on stick.
3: connect one good speaker (KNOWN GOOD)
to one of 4 speaker lines. (2 wires)
4: push play, does it sound good, yes, move to next speaker port.
ok , the radio is good. so
try it in the car, is it now low volumn
yes, then move that test speaker to the car speaker that is low.
still low, yes, then the wiring is bad.

easy huh?,,, takes only , a test speaker.

if no usb use, cassette, if no that , use CDDA disk( store bought real)
if none of that us the radio to test. connect a test antenna.
tune in Am or fm. bam.

SOURCE: My radio will turn on

I had the same problem, I replaced the amp under the passenger seat and it didnt help. What I did was bypassed the amp by cutting the speaker wires on the back of the radio and ran new wires to my speakers. I works great now.

SOURCE: why would a 2003 Chevy Impala's speakers not

This may be a anti-theft issue. If it is and you want it fixed, the Chevy Dealter is probably the best place to have this work done, IF it can be done at all. My Chevy radio instructions tell me that if there is a genuine power loss to the radio when the anti theft system is activated (like someone breaking into the car and stealing it, cutting the wires) that the radio will not work again with out GM intervention.

Radio Amp has died. Replace the Radio. The Amp/Pre Amp is built into the radio if this is stock. Buy a new one and install it.

Bose radio comes on but no sound in my 2004 chevy avalanche.Sometimes even with radio off you hear a popping sound come from speakers. thanks


First Visually check all your fuses. Does rig have amp for stereo by any chance? It sounds like amp is bad and/or fuse is blown. Amp is wired between radio and speakers, and a shorted amp would make crackling in speakers when radio is OFF

I have a 1998 Chevy Suburban the radio in it worked fine until I got it home. The it just quit.. When you hit the power button you can hear it try to come on but it doesnt.. But every once in a blue moon...


Sounds like a loose wire some place, like a ground wire or hot lead. Is it a stock radio or after market? Either or thats what it sounds like to me, loose connection. Might be loose wire or connection to one of the speakers. You will just have to start tracing wires until you find the problem.

1996 chevy blazer radio turns on but there is no sound


I have a strong feeling that the head unit "radio" has finally gone bad. You describe a situation, in which you have to turn it on and off, to get it to work. Typically if the sound comes out of all speakers, after doing that, then the speakers were never broken. The head unit itself should be replaced. I hope this helps.
