I got a 91 chevy pick up with a cilfford, the radio works but hardly any sound comes out of speakers. I got a new radio and its the same. All speakers play buy sound is very low. I was told it was do to...


posted 6 times.
run new wires from new radio to speakers
or bench test your radio (easy) with your speakers.
if still low the speakers are bad or just dirt cheap , car speakers.
try new speakers, if weak now the wires are bad, try new wires
id still weak the radio is bad. (or just a cheap radio)
and define weak, to me most radios are way too load.
but to others, all are weak until 1000watt amp is added.
weak is a relative term. as is hardly any.
do not quote persons guessing, its just a wild guess. they can see car either, do the tests your self and find TRUTH.

to bench test, (modern way)
1: 12vdc 1amp power pack, or battery 12v. and ground.
2: connect up USB mem,. with some mp3s. on stick.
3: connect one good speaker (KNOWN GOOD)
to one of 4 speaker lines. (2 wires)
4: push play, does it sound good, yes, move to next speaker port.
ok , the radio is good. so
try it in the car, is it now low volumn
yes, then move that test speaker to the car speaker that is low.
still low, yes, then the wiring is bad.

easy huh?,,, takes only , a test speaker.

if no usb use, cassette, if no that , use CDDA disk( store bought real)
if none of that us the radio to test. connect a test antenna.
tune in Am or fm. bam.

My battery went dead in my car, i replaced the battery and now the following items do not work. power windows, power locks, power side mirrors, turn signals, and the intermediate speed on the wipers. all...


I have a 2006 with a similar problem. Apparently there is a good chance, with Suzukis, of blowing the main fuse at the battery. Also have read about another fuse block under the steering column, not identified in the manual, check those fuses. My problem developed when I jumped the battery and lost all the items you listed plus the radio. Should here from mechanic today if problem resolved

Radio will not come on


Of course the obvious, check that the fuse is good. Once you have determined the fuse is operational, you would need to pull the radio and check at the power connector to see if it has power. Assuming you have power to the unit and it still is not coming on there is a strong possibility something in the radio power supply went out. Unfortunately like an electric light bulb, it rarely burns out while operating. Only when you turn it on does it go out. The process of applying power to any electronic device generates heat, and if it has a weak spot that is when it is most likely to burn out.
