The most likely reason for this is normally the output amplifier IC in the radio. If this is the problem, you would need to have the IC replaced. One bad speaker can also cause all the speakers to stop working.

If you have a multimeter to check the voltages on the speaker wires I could giude you thru troubleshooting it. It is very common for the amplifier IC to go bad in these radios. I work at an authorized Pioneer repair center and have fixed countless numbers of these radios. But before anybody can be certain of the cause of your problem, some thngs must be checked using a multimeter. Let me know if you have one, I will then tell you how to check what needs to be checked.

A repair for this type of problem on this radio will normally be too expensive to make it worth fixing. These radios normally cost about $100 brand new in the U.S. and a repair for this problem at a service center would be very close to that same amount, making it a better idea to buy a new one. If you do the repair yourself, it would only cost about $30 for the part. But you would need to know how to solder very good and be able to remove the bad IC and solder the new one into the radio. If you are not able to do this very well, please consider replacing the radio with a new one. You would first need to determain if the radio is at fault by checking the voltages on the speaker wires. They should all be around 6.5 to 7.0 volts. That is the normal voltage for speaker wires for these type of radios.

Let me know if you require more help.

No Dash lights, or tail lights. All fuses and bulbs are good. Headlights and turn signals fine. Very confused....please help.

Sounds as if you may have a short did you check the bulbs? I would check the bulbs and make sure they are good. when you lift the rear hatch lid search around the wires and see if you have a exposed wire or perhaps a loose wire connection. Allot of times wires in a vehicle that year start getting frayed and worn from putting different items in the rear of the vehicle.

bad connection right at the blower motor. put the blower motor on and wiggle the two wirer connector. this is the most likely cause and the fix is to bend the prongs to get a tight fit again in the connector.

Freezer works fridge does not on a GE GSS22QGMC BB

you need to take freezer evaperator cover off , then turn it to defrost and test the supply voltage across the defrost element. if no volts then test the round disk looking thing with 2 wirers comming out of it . with the supply power removed from the power point, the coil frozen up , disconnect these wirers and use a continuity checker such as a multy meter on diode check or buzzer mode, you should have a closed circuit through the defrost termination thermostat (round disk with 2 wirers) , it is in series with the defrost element thus cutting the power to the element if the coil temp gets too high and terminates the element , the timer will time out after it's time duration is reached. A good way to test the motor in the timer is to put a texta mark on the dial of the timer and check it in 1/2 hr, to see if it has moved.AFTER YOU HAVE PUT THE ELECTRICAL CONNECTIONS BACK AFTER TESTING THE TERMINATIN THERMOSTAT AND MADE IT SAFE, YOU WOULD PLUG IT BACK IN.
The defrost timer needs to be connected to power of the fridge to opperate.
****. let me know your progress pls.

Kenwood hac 9152d, was working fine now doesnt output any sound

Check the fuse on the amp.

My girlfriend had the same thing, light was on, no sound whatsoever. The fuse on the amp had blown, but I'm guessing some current must have made it through to just put the light on. Make sure you have a 40 amp fuse in it, that's what it needs.

Good luck

I have a pioneer 5.1 channel surround sound system and it powers up and everything seems to go fine but you go to turn it up and no sound comes out of the speakers already checked speaker wire connections...

Does the protection relay click 3 to 5 seconds after initial power on??? If not, your unit is staying in "protect" mode to save your speakers because the output transistors or output IC is shorted and sending 40 to 60 volts at your speakers. Not a good thing, but at least it saves your speakers.
Good Luck!
