It was not wired correctly or unless the radio only had the output for 2 speakers. some come for the output of 2 speakers and other output for 4 speakers. If it came for four speaker it wasn't wired properly unless the settings for the radio u have the rear or front speakers FADE or BALANCE check this settings in your manual and adjust in the radio this might also be the fault

I am sorry to have to say this, but what you need is to find someone who knows what they are doing to fix the wiring that the original installers messed up. There could be crossed wires, bad grounds, poor connections, etc. Under the worst case scenario, this could cause a fire.

No sound but radio has power


Check to see if your speaker wires are cut from the radio to the speakers. Not all of the speakers will stop working at the same time. On my 2001 expedition, the front worked but not the doors or rear. I found a cut speaker wire that is located behind the windshield trim above the stearing wheel where someone had installed an air freshener with a screw

I've got a pontiac g8 v6 model.when I turn the radio above 18 it's starts cutting out and the higher you turn it up the more it cuts out? Any idea what could be wrong with it


It sounds like the speaker can't handle the power output of the radio either due to it being damaged/defective or the wrong speaker was installed at some point. Has the speaker system ever been worked on or speaker replaced.

Radio wire harness cut


You can buy a kit from a number of sources to solve this problem. Instructions come with the kit. If you are putting a stock radio back in go to a junk yard and cut the loom out of another truck and marry it to your truck. If you don't want to do either of these things the fat red wire is almost always hot. The antenna cable is unique and will only fit in one spot. the speaker wires are small diameter and will work no matter which way you hook them up as long as one hot (speaker) wire and one ground wire go to each speaker. Have fun.

Radio wires differ from the speaker to the radio


This is the most common problem with self installs.The best thing to do is to get the car radio installation plug,it will plug into the factory plug for your factory radio and will give you a color coded pigtail to wire into that usually matches up perfectly with new aftermarket car radios.If the wires are already cut then you best bet is to extend the wires so that they are easy to work with hookup the power,ground,antenna and try dirrerent combos to isolate each speaker and label the wires accordingly.

How do i install a sound system into a 1986 honda accord?


is there a factory radio already installed or just a cover plate, if there is a cover plate use a very small screwdriver to pop the plate out (it ha two clips) you can also use a small pry tool); if there is a factory radio installed you must go under dash behind radio with a 8mm 1/4 inch drive socket with extension and remove the two screws out of the radio ,rear part of radio; if there is a center console you must remove the 2- 4 side screws and two screws in the armrest section inside or on the rear side of the console, slide it back and remove console then the radio. sometimes you have to remove the ash tray pull out; and remove the three screws in the black metal area of the ash tray mount. to remove the radio push it out from behind and it will pop right out. if your putting in an aftermarket radio not a honda radio; you can buy an electrical adapter from pep boys or other automotive supply house to attach to your wiring harness so you do not have to cut any wires. usually honda places a speaker and wiring diagram on their radios . good luck

I have a 2000 Honda Accord. The radio works but there is no sound coming out of the speakers. One day the the speakers all crackeled and I didn't here sound again. What do I do? Is there an amp?


I had an issues where the my radio was working but no sound was coming out of the speakers. My problem was that the passenger speaker was disconected, and the wires were shorting out the radio. So I took it in to a pro installer and we put in a new speaker to the passenger door and hooked it up properly. The deck then started playing music fine.

Make sure your speakers are all connected properly, and that your wires have no cuts in the plastic that would expose the copper, causing them to short out. Also check your fuses to see if you blew any.

Hope this helps.

Where can I get a speaker wiring chart for 97 Ford Explorer


Perhaps there was another system installed at another time and someone cut the wires within the system to make that particular stereo system work. Inspect the wires all the way from the decks wiring harness to the speakers, they could be cut and you might be able to splice the wires and reconnect them or you may have to run seperate speaker wire for each speaker to resolve this issue.

Rear door speakers don't work w/ aftermarket radio in 94 suburban


You need to attach the blue wire on the stereo harness to the blue and white wire on the car adapter harness. they installed a small amplifier to power the rear door speakers and unless you connect those two wires then the speakers will not work.
