Question about Pioneer DEH-P47DH CD Player

2 Answers

No Sound I recently purchased this unit used and wired it to my Dodge Ram pickup. I took good care to make sure the wiring was correct. When I turned the truck's ignition on, I was able to power up the unit just fine, but I get no sound at all to my speakers. I have used a volt meter to check the connections from the wiring harness to the stereo and those are fine. There is no sound from a CD or from the tuner. Though the CD timer counts as it plays and the tuner shows the "Stereo" icon when I tune it. Every function on the unit seems to work properly, I just have no sound. I plugged my old factory stereo back in to test the speakers and they are fine. I'm at a loss where to go next. Afraid there is a problem with the internal amp or something. Any ideas?

Re: No Sound

Most ram trucks came with a infinity system. the amps are in the front doors, mounted to the 6x9 speakers. and they power the tweeters in the columms, and also rear speakers if you have them. I had to replace the entire system.

Re: No Sound

Does your Dodge have a factory amplifier? It definitely sounds like it. Try hooking up one of the speaker wires to an external sound amplifier or something like that and see if you get sound. If you don't, then you have a factory amp. You can also try touching the speaker wires with a 9volt battery and listening for a popping sound. If you don't want to test, contact and ask if your truck has an external amplifier. They can help you find a bypass wiring harness so that you don't have to deal with it.

1994 toyota pickup - trying to install a jvc car stereo - all wires match up, clock will come on for a moment and then turn off. no sound either.

First of all have you tried to check the set before installing. If not test this once again. please take care to see if the main power , the standby power and the ground is given right and into the right path. make sure that the ground is taken correct. once this is right , your set must work. switch off and then you can connect the speakers. Hope this helps. good day

I just hooked up a pioneer deh-5100ub stereo in my 2004 dodge ram 1500 pick-up using a store bought wiring harness but I cannot get any sound from my speakers now.

Does you truck say Infinity anywhere on a door panel or such? If so you need to make sure that the blue wire from the store bought wiring harness is connected to the amp turn on from the pioneer.

Im trying to install the harness in a2001 dodge ram. i dont know which wire goes where when the wires on the truck are not labled like they are on the hareness

are you installing a radio? If you are, then does the harness you have plug into what you unplugged from the factory Dodge radio? If not then stop and go to an electronics store and purchase the correct harness for the truck. If there was no harness plug in the truck and just wires, then it is much more difficult. Unless you are experienced doing "hardwires" take to a professional.

Alpine cda 9884 has no sound in cd or ipod mode

actually, chrysler/dodge has factory Infinity sound systems installed. The nice part about these systems is that you dont have to bypass the amplifiers in order to put a new radio in, but simply power up the amp by hooking up the amp turn on wire at the harness. The alpine should have 2 blue wires coming off of the back, one that is solid, the other with a white stripe. The one that is solid only has 12v when the fm/am radio is on (used for power antenna) but cuts off when other sources are used (cd,aux,ipod). My guesses are, you have the amp wire on the vehicle harness (blue) tied into this wire, instead of the BLUE/WHITE wire on the alpine which has 12v as long as the radio is on. i hope this solves your problem, 9 times out of 10 on a chrysler this is it.

Exactly a minute after you turned it on it went out, did it go out with like a bang or spark, seriously, this would indicate that the wiring wasn't correct somehow, i know u checked the fuse for the correct ampperage required and the most important question do you have an amp because most aftermarket head units aren't wired for 6 speakers,unlike oem Bose unit which has a built in amp and 6 wires output, you should have rca jacks which requires a amp for the additional output speakers. I could be wrong regrding how many output available on your new head unit.
