Hi, I forgot to include, maybe a key component to my past problem i wrote to you about before. Not only does the audio stop working, but the "chimes you hear when you leave the lights on or keys in the ignition" they don't ring anymore since the audio went out in the stereo. I don't know if this component makes a difference in the solution. I don't know how they are related. Please help fix this problem, I'm ready to pull my hair out about this, plus i don't want to end up with a dead battery or worse yet-lock my keys in the car. Thank you for all the time you have taken on this. Kimsu

Re: Stereo Power on but no audio
Ok the first thing i can think of is that when you put the key in and turn it there should be 12 volts going to the system. now seeing that there is no chime and no audio tells me that perhaps your igniton module inside the steering column is defective. your turn signals have a module that is powered on when you turn the key as well. there should always be 12 volts to the ignition module. when you turn the key 12 volts goes to the ignition and all your accessories. like i mentioned before there should be a 10-12 pin wire harness that goes up your steering column. you have to check all the connections under the dash if they are good thios will tell you that the hot feedfrom the ignition is the problem and the module needs replacing... hope this clarifies things for you....pleqase rate thanks

hi robert. if your aux jack is mounted on the front of the face then i assume you have a problem within the face, maybe a cracked pc board, a switch which has lost its "click" feel, or even dirty gold face contact pins. also make sure that none of the 8 speaker lines is touching/shorting to the ground level. lastly have all your speakers checked independantly. cheers.
You, sir, are a rare adherent to stereo-only electronics. Are you replacing it for cause (showing its age)? The PM7003 is only 2 x 70 watts like the JVC but it also has separable preamp/amps so you COULD upgrade or augment the power output with external amps and still control it all locally.
Of course, any current AVR's do that too and bring digital sources and multichannel audio to the mix for as little as the PM7703 may cost.
Hi, your factory Sunfire wire colors are pasted below. The yellow wire should be accessory. This should connect to the stereo's red power wire. The orange "always hot" wire should connect to the stereo yellow wire--this is only used to keep your station presets in memory. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.
