Question about Car Audio & Video Accessories

Stereo Power on but no audio

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.

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

I am istalling a jvc car stereo in my 92 chevy truck. The stereo wire connections have been cut. I was able to find the car stereo wiring schematic online. My problem is: when i turn the key to accesory...


hi this sounds like you have connected the permanent live wire to an auxiliary wire, ie, what ever the power source you have connected it to, only works until the vehicle has started, then the power is stopped, sorta like.. say, the starter motor, it only uses the power when it is needed then when it is running it shuts the power off, just like the lights on the dash ect ect, your best bet would be to find a permanent live from the battery supply...hope this helps

your going to have to call the dealer or remove the radio and get the model and searh online for radio codes and pay the going rate if you can find one and hope the code works. Or look in your glove box books. Maybe someone wrote it down somewhere.

How do remove the standard stereo from a VZ Commodore and install a double din size stereo?


go on to ebay and search vz stereo there will be listings with stereo removal tools for about $10 and if you are going to install a double din stereo you will also need to buy a kit (http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=190457652235&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT#ht_1157wt_1020) that fits around the display so you can hold the stereo in place. this kit includes all you need including the antenna adapter and another wireing harness

Battery dead after being replaced less than 4 days ago


Run the stereo system through the fuse panel. It will disconnect the power when the key is off.

Stereo plays on acc. after u start engine plays 2-3 seconds


IS THERE AN AMP? ARE YOU SURE YOU HAVE DECK/ AMP HOOKED UP TO A CONSTANT "KEY ON" POWER SOURCE? I WOULD GET A TEST LIGHT(REAL CHEAP AT WALMART, OR AUTOPARTS STORES) AND SEE IF MAIN WIRE IS NOT A TIMED KEY ON CIRCUT.... ALSO IF AMP IS BEING USED MAKE SURE ITS HOOKED TO REMOTE ON WIRE(USUALLY BLUE WIRE) AND NOT POWER ANTENNA LEAD OR SOME OTHER TEMP/TIMED POWER LEAD. GOOD LUCK
