Speakers not working--FM and CD player shows it is
Help please! I travel and need my sound! Speakers not working--AM/FM and CD player shows it is working in the digital display. This happened after a guy trying to help jumped battery with wrong cable placement. I've already spent more than I have on fixing the other things that went wrong: shift module, new battery, brake switch, wiring harness...son thinks he could at least check it free to see if amp is truly gone--is there an easy way to check/fix this for someone who knows alot about replacing car stereo, etc.? Was told the amp is under the front passenger seat. Also, probably showing my ignorance, but would really like to know--I'm wondering why all of this happened in the first place--isn't this what fuses are for?

The radio receives power from the RADIO fuse in the junction block-right I/P. Ground is provided via G201 and G202. The radio is enabled/disabled by class 2 messages from the body control module (BCM). The radio routes audio signals from the digital radio receiver or the vehicle communication interface module (VCIM) to the speakers and/or amplifier when directed by class 2 messages.
The Entertainment System on this vehicle is configured with an AM/FM stereo radio with the radio data system (RDS) and either a cassette player or a CD player or both. CD and cassette. The uplevel system provides the customer with extended range speakers and an audio amplifier. Satellite digital radio (U2K) is available with uplevel systems.
The following list shows the radios available for this vehicle:
• Radio (ULO) - AM/FM Stereo, Cassette with RDS
• Radio (UNO) - AM/FM Stereo, CD and RDS
• Radio (UPO) - AM/FM Stereo, Cassette with CD and RDS .The complexity of the radio systems on these vehicle is mind blowing .

DTC B1025, B1035, B1045, or B1055
When the radio is powered up, the radio supplies low level audio signals to the speakers. If the vehicle is equipped with an audio amplifier, the amplifier will boost the signal sent to the speakers.

Does the scan tool indicate that DTC B1025 is current?
What i found i have had that problem in the past,This may sound stupid but it works.Spray aftershave over the cd then push the cd into the player when the aftershave is wet.This will clean out the dust inside your cd player .i can say this will do no harm.ok pippall,Hope that solves it for you m8.
Sounds like the CD changer is defective, sometimes the dealer will offer a "one time goodwill" repair when it is out of warranty for miles but not for the time period. Check with the dealer where you purchased the car.
The only way to get the car out of transport mode is for the dealer to plug the car in to the main diagnostic terminal and download the software to activate all of the control modules. This has to be done to all new cars arriving from the factory.
As your car is a 1994 this reason is highly unlikely for the radio to off stopped working.
It sounds to me that the actual radio tuner has given up, in short you may need a new radio.
