No output from speakers in car.

Unit works, speakers are connected. Have just swapped car stereo. Still no sound from any of the 6 speakers. No apparent damage to wiring. Connections seem fine and pretty solid. What's wrong? It should be straight forward. If the audio unit in one stereo doesn't work, the new stereo should. If one speaker is damaged then at least 3 others should still work. The car has had bodywork done recently but both speakers are still connected on the side the work was done. Any ideas?

Why would only 5 of 6 speakers work after new head unit car audio install?

Either that speaker is not connected or, the speaker is blown. To test: Disconnect that speaker from the stereo and, using a 9volt battery, tap the speaker's + and - to the battery's + and -. You should hear a "pop". That would indicate that the speaker works. DO NOT connect the 9 volt battery to the stereo side of the speaker wire!!!! 3_24_2016_7_22_43_pm.png

Most likely a shorted speaker. Disconnect all speaker wires at the radio and try them one at a time. Be sure to have radio off when making connections. The speaker that causes the sound to shut off is the shorted one.

There is no sound but everything seems to be working

Try moving the speaker -( ground) from the output of the stereo to the chassis ground - in other words, the speaker - from the wire harness needs to be connected to the chassis ground, making sure it is not connected to the harness - just the speaker. Just try 1 speaker to see if it works or not. If the unit lights up and all the functions seem to work properly but no matter what you cannot get sound out - including the test outlined here then you may possibly have an internal amp blown or another component on the circuit board of the stereo which could happen if the power / ground leads touched or were hooked up backwards. If it's new I'd take it back - if not ( or purchased used and no hope of getting your money back ) you may be able to take it to a stereo repair shop for repair.
Hope this helps and good luck!!!

No audio from mini input jack on Pioneer SupertunerIIID 50w x4

The mini jack was not designed to work in the manner in which you are trying to use it. The stereo output is always going to be at a higher output rate than the amplifier output. if you want to use an MP3 player with your stereo you will have to purchase a head unit with a built-in MP3 input or deal with the lower rate of volume.

I have a 74 bug and I was putting new panels and I made sure the speaker worked before I put the panel all the way on, and it did. Then after I put the panel completely on there is no sound coming from any...

Re-check all speaker wires carefully where they go through holes in vehicle body for breaks in wire insulation, also check any screws that you may have fitted, one of these may have been screwed through the wire causing a short and the car stereo unit to output no sound. Make sure the stereo unit earth wire has an earth direct to vehicle body and not into a wire in the vehicle loom.

If you are using the speaker out wiring (not RCA) then disconnect all speaker wires. connect only one speaker or use a known good test speaker. Try each of the 4 speaker outputs. If none still do not work, then it sounds like a blown output chip which will need to be replaced.

Stereo display works fine, but no sound to speakers.

The wires may have gotten wet and fried something in the sound output in the stereo.

No output from the left front speaker

using your flashlight bulb in one hand, hold the speaker wires to the bulb and then gradually increase the volume. If the bulb lights, the Pioneer is good.

Car stereo static

Sounds like you may have an output transistor/module about to go out.
