    I have the same problem with the radio playing intermittently on my 2001 Monte Carlo SS. Comes and goes, now radio is not playing at all. It will come on for about five seconds going down the road, and then go off. All the lights and buttons work but no sound. Nobody can tell me if the radio is bad or if it's the factory amp. HELP

    I have had my car for 3 years now and this problem has happened to me twice. The first time was 2 weeks ago. The second time was today. I just let the car sit while I was at work and the radio began to work again when I went home. Weird, huh??

    I just fixed an amp from 2001 monte carlo, it was cutting in and out with temperature, and occasionally when hitting a bump or if the sub was cranked. The trunk mounted amp gets audio from the head unit, then sends it to the speakers. The amp chips have a mute and standby line - I didn't follow the traces to see which one was the culprit, but I did measure a couple dead resistors in the area. They are near a blue capacitor next to the incoming choke filter circuit, and covered with soft glue. Thankfully the glue comes off easily, but it's a commonly known issue that too hard of a glue on components can crack them - which I assume is what happened.

    My fix was R706 and R707, both measured well beyond their rated values when in circuit (and the amp was off). These are both 0805 package, 5%, 1/10W resistors, and should measure as follows:

    R706, labeled as 104 = ~100K in circuit (bad one was way higher)

    R707, labeled as 103 = ~10K in circuit (bad one was way higher)

    After replacing those two resistors, the amp worked just fine, no cutouts - and it had been completely dead for months, and cutting out for a couple years prior.

    Good luck fixing, e-mail me and i'll try to fix yours for a fee

Radio appears to be working but no sound. 2001 Monte Carlo SS Any suggestions

There is an amplifier located in the trunk under the back deck. See if it is hot to the touch. If so, one of the amplifier ICs is shorted. The amplifier has a remote turn on that may not be working. This may be a problem also. I can repair the amplifier for $60 including shipping. Contact information... (rike2 at bellsouth dot net)

Monte carlo radio is theftlocked.

you need the unlock code from the manufacturer. I had a radio lock up but the company had me send it to them for them to unlock. i had to prove that i bought it and it was not stolen.

Audio display says check cd

This may be a bit late to help, but I just had the same problem yesterday. Same car (2000 Monte Carlo SS), but mine is just the CD/radio stereo (no cassette). I was able to solve it by pulling the fuse for the radio (it's in the right-side panel) and letting it sit for a minute. After putting it back in, the CD player made the disc ejecting sound one time (no "check CD" message) and stayed off. And now it seems to be working fine. We'll see how long it lasts, though.

2000 mote carlo ss wont start

I think you have something on the radio issue, pursue that as the cause, call the dealer they may be able to help with some info, also there are forums just for your car, join one and post a thread with your question, allot of owners I bet have had the same issue.
