The radios output circuit is at fault. The radio must be repaired if wanted to work again. It will be cheaper to find another radio

Car radio knob keeps turning but no volume from speakers


since all the wires coming to and from radio utilize the same plug-in and the odds of 4-6 speakers all having a bad connection at the same time is astronomical it sounds like a bad radio

Radio sound low and squeeky, works good in summertime


The volume control on your radio is called a potentiometer, which may be going bad. It works better when its warm because materials expand as they warm up and make tighter contact with each other.

It is also a possible a bad wiring connection exists. Poor contact will cause static, poor audio quality and intermittent output.

Your radio will have plug type connector(s) Your speakers will most likely each have two wires with single female spade connectors of different widths (keeps the polarity correct) the wire with the stripe (of whatever color) will be connected to the negative (-) speaker terminal.

So you need to check all the connections, one is making poor contact.
If both speakers (assuming you have two) sound good or bad... then start with the plug connectors for the radio and any independent black ground wire coming out of the radio.

If one speakers sounds okay check the connections on the other one. You check the connections by carefully pulling the speaker wire off of the speaker and then carefully pushing it back on making sure it feels tight and secure.

PS: If you pull the fuse for the radio, the radio will have no power and will not work. The radio coming on proves the fuse is good.

PSS: Your owners manual should provide lots of information on your sound system components.

How do i fix the amp on my radio?


When you turn the radio all the way up to max volume does the amp turn off ? you could have a short or a blowen speaker which is making the amp go into protection mode. i would disconnect all speakers then try one speaker by itself and see if you have full sound again... go through this process untill the sound stops again.

Radio on 2008 dodge nitro stops working it goes out for a while then comes back on. no sound even when turning the volume up and down. it makes a loud popping noise and goes out.


Im having the same problem! No pop, just a hum, and my volume dial won't adjust. Like the actual dial isn't working. I can't use radio, cd, or aux. Silence SUCKS.

1999 Porsche Carrera the radio turns on and there is no sound from speakers. What do I do to get the sound to come on.


if the radio powers on make sure it is set to an fm station by pushing the S button. then turn the knob on the left to turn the volume up. if there is still no sound it is most likely a radio gone bad or the amp has gone bad.

My back speaker doesn´t work,, everything is


It sounds like it's your radio if it's the OEM. To make it somple the factory radio had there separate amp muilt in each chanel so if one speaker went bad the others woudl still play. There is no quick fix other then haveing it replaced or if have it repaired.Good luck and just dubble check all the connections

MY FACTORY RADIO VOLUME PROBS


More than likely with a 2003, the speakers that cut out are in the door or doors. Do they cut out of both speakers?

If they cut out of one, then you may have an intermittent speaker ( the wire to the cone becomes partially connected)

If both speakers turn off at the same time and you hear NOTHING on all speakers, then you more than likely have an intermittent connection on the radio itself and probably replacement is probably cheaper than fixing the radio.

One more thing
Factory radios sometimes have an amplifier in them. Sounds funny but they call the Radio in the dash the Head Unit and the amplifier is buried in the dash. You could have a bad amplifier or a loose power connection to it, but that is very unlikely.

Hope this helps.
