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.

Ok, so I have a 95 nissan maxima se and it has the stock radio with the tape player so I took all that out , now im about to install the new deck in but I noticed the wirers dont hook up with the stock...

Your best bet is to go to a good stereo store that can get you a wiring harness adapter that will plug into your car and be color coded to wire up to your aftermarket radio.

It will save you a lot of time and trouble.

I installed a pioneer Deh P49001B car stereo in a 1997 dodge stratus with wiring adapter from best buy. everything works great until you switch on the lights. all power to stereo is gone.

to solve the problem with it turning off when u turn your lights on is that on the back side of your radio is a spot that says max and something else keep your ground wires conected just how they are but get u a a 14 to 12 gage wire a cut u about 6 inches and use one end and connect to your other ground wires (with Connecters ) and the other end and with a closed end connecter with the little hole in the center i cant place wat its called but any ways put it where that max hole thing is where there is a screw there and that should fix that problem cause i had that happen before .. but make sure your antentia is pluged iin to ok .. good luck Paul,

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.

Pioneer DEH-2100, no power after alternator change.

Take the unit out of the dash. In the back of the unit, disconnect/remove the wiring connector. Underneath a little "flap" on the bottom of this connector there is a small red 10V fuse. That fuse had blown, and when I replaced it the CD?radio worked just fine.

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

No sound

Check your remote turn-on lead connection - you may have a factory amplified system which isn't getting turned on, which would explain the no sound.
