This happened to me just last year! I removed the battery connection for about 5 min and replaced it. Fortunately, it didn't ask me for a radio code when I put the battery back on. What ever the problem was, it reset itself and the mute is now unstuck.

It's the old power down and reboot solution. Works every time!

Thanks and good luck!

I purchased a 2006 nissan pathfinder. The system plays but there is no sound coming out what do I do?


I would check out the radio features and make sure the radio isn't on mute or the fader is turned in the wrong direction or there is another button depressed muting the sound.

if that s ok you will have to remove the radio and check to see if the speaker wires are still connected to the stereo

if they are you will have to remove the door trims and see if the wires are still connected to the speakers as well

check the radio features first

Radio works but no sound

Don't laugh...but have you a) turned the volume right down. b) hit the 'mute' tab. c) tuned to a channel d) made sure antenna is up ? now it gets interesting e) checked the amp fuse inside the device f) checked the connectors from the the good bit.... wiggle the ignition key gently while engine running also gently pushing key in further.... it happened to my standard original 2001 lim ed still does, the wires cross inside . when engine on and radio going, it cuts out, sometimes just the display, sometimes whole thing blanks out.. comes back on when I tap key in. weird but true. sounds like amp fuse blown (right inside radio itself) Red

My radio stopped working and just says PHONE with the phone icon on Display. 2006 mountaineer.

Try pressing the phone key on the display. It sounds like you have hit a mute setting for taking or making telephone calls. It is possible that the Sync system is waiting for you to enter a phone number and has killed the radio for the call.

1996 Ford Explorer factory Radio works but when i install the aftermarket radio no sound comes out from it what do i do ..??

Does it light up? Does it have a mute button? Does it have a mute wire for in vehicle phone systems? If so, it may need to be grounded to take it out of mute, or it may need to go to 12 volts + It depends on how the circuit was designed.

If those check out, or it lights up but no muting make sure the speakers are connected to the correct wires. Also check to make sure the speakers are not grounded. Two wires should go to each speaker. you can check the condition of the speakers with a 9 volt battery touched across the leads, you will hear a pop sound. make sure those two wires for each speaker are connected to the radio correctly.

Radio wiring

Sounds like you have been misled as radios do not interfere with any other system in the car.Are you saying Tel mute because of phone hooked into it and muting or its just stopped putting out sound?A car radio is relatively easy to remove and check without unplugging.Pull radio out enough to check that all the plugs are plugged in and check wether an amplifier has been installed as its usualy an amp that stops the output of sound.If no amp fitted you will need to determine if you are getting a signal out from the speaker wires at the stereo plug,use spare speaker and test all the speaker output wires and if no power you may need to get it repaired/replaced.Not sure with your year/model but some radios do have a mute facility built in so check every function on your stereo very carefully .
