Question about 1994 Saturn Sl

1 Answer

Radio not working

My head unit stopped working in the middle of a song, and I figured it just died. I put in my stock radio and now that doesn't work either. I took a test light to the wire harness and saw that only the gold wire lit up. I checked the fuses, and they were all ok but I changed them anyway just to be safe. Still no luck. I don't know what to do next. Any thoughts?

Make sure you are checking the fuses in the panel on the left side of the passenger's seat. These are the fuses for the radio, not the ones under the car hood.

2002 s-10...radio lights, clock and progaming shows up but nothing when i turn volume up


If you mean no sound, could be speaker wires are dead, output to the speakers on the head unit could be dead, if your system is fully amplified, that wire could have come undone.

First question: Is it stock radio?
Second question: no aftermarket items added to the system?
Third question: you mean no sound?

If the answer to all these are yes, test your cigarette lighter to see if it works. If it does, it's most likely the head unit or the stock amp. If it doesn't work, check the ACC fuse, sometimes there is a radio one too. Your head unit has three "power wires" one is constant (Unit turning on, time, etc. The second is the "switch" wire. The third is the ground. I am wagering the switch wire has a separate fuse. Hope this helps!

Radio not working


there are 3 power sources to radio. if stock, if not stock more.
Radio power.
memory power
and dial lamp power. (dimmer)

why not use a voltmeter to find out why its dead.
even better the FSM shows the wires, the colors and the path.
making guessing go to zero.

when working electrics pull battery minus lug, like the FSM directs you.
and keys in pocket. causing load dumps can cause very expensive
electronics to fail. even the EFI, PCM.

Stock Speakers wont work with new stereo plzzzz HELP


U have a Factory audio auxiliary amp in the truck, the radio is just a head unit with a preamp feeding a main amp, that is behind the right rear 1/4 panel trim panel in the cargo area, if your new sound unit has preamp outputs use them, other wise u must wire around the Ford factory amplifier.

The stock radio? Or is it something someone put in there?
I would pull the radio out and check to make sure the harness is fully engaged in the back of the radio.

thats not a good idea the much power taken from the radio will fry the radio a stock stereo usally has a 125 watt max so my suggestion is but a radio that can deal with the power

Fixing car radio myself


Check fuses, if all are good you will have to replace radio. Replacing a radio is quite easy if you use an adaptor from Circuit City for instance, or know your way around a voltmeter. If you can't get either it would be better to have a store/shop put one in for you.

check the remote wire. if this does not work try cleaning the wiring harness but make sure that the battery is disconnected. if that doesnt work try to trace the wires back to where they start an check for a break in the wire. an have you checked all the fuses under the hood an in the fuse pannel?
