Car Stereo Not Working

I recently bough a new stereo and fitted it and it workes fine. I could not connect the aerial for the radio as I did not have the connector. I bought the said connector and then plugged it in and it worked fine for a couple of minutes then went off. I have checked the fuse on the unit and in the fuse box and both are fine. I tried my old stereo and that does not power on either.

There is a power light on the new stereo and I can see that the power is getting through but the unit itself will not power up...

Can anyone help..?

Got new stock stereo for my Honda crv because the CD player jammed up on the old one. Put in new stereo, cd and tape player work fine but radio is just all static. Antenna is plugged in. Ideas?


You might cure this with inline suppressor which you connect somewhere between aerial and input jack.if it makes static noises when engine is not running then it is an aerial issue.either the input is not pushed all the way in or the braid is touching metalwork or the cable is faulty.

Remove radio from car dashboard, disconnect antenna and put about 2-3 m wire into it instead. Try to search for any radio signal - if it's finding something then aerial amp is broken. As far as I remember it's in aerial base and might need replacement.

Stereo wiring on mk4 golf r32? Fitted new stereo bit radio isn't working I Need to know what colour wire to connect to the power supply for the amplified ariel?


12 volt accessory or same wire that goes to red wire on stereo or cigarette lighter.
OR
What is the current draw on amplified aerial ? or are you talking bout electric aerial(up and down automatically ?) If current draw is really low like 500 milliamp or so then hook her up to blue wire (remote output) on back of stereo but REMEMBER this is LOW current and only meant to switch on amps and raise electric aerials etc.If you think amp on aerial is too much for it then run the rem wire to a 12 volt relay and wire it so that when rem triggers and closes the gate will be connecting an accessory wire OR perm 12v wire to aerial power . That way aerial ONLY turns on(POWERS UP) when stereo is on as opposed to other way where aerial will be powered up every time car ign or acc is turned on regardless of whether the stereo is on or not.

My battery was disconnected for a new starter motor to be fitted - now it won't tune in. CD works but radio just hisses? I've checked aerial connections which seem OK. Radio lights up and looks like it...


Somehow your antenna has become disconnected. Check the back of the stereo and look at the ANT connection. Remove it and test continuity from the center to the outside antenna. Chassis is ground and most likely will not have a problem.

Fitting a Kenwood car stereo to a 2003 Toyota Hilux ute, all works well until aerial lead plugged in, then immediately the fuse blows that feeds park lights, dash lights, instruments etc. Car stereo works...


The vehicle chassis ground or negative is opposite to the stereo. The aerial is vehicle chassis ground (earth), when touched to stereo results in direct short. If the Hilux is positive ( + ) chassis (earth) and the stereo is negaitive ( - ) ground, there is the short. If this is the problem, either replace with a compatable stereo or compatable vehicle.

Ive bought a peugeot306 recently and the person who had the car before has took there car stereo out and cut the wire, so now im having trouble putting my stereo in. thanks


  • First thing to do is isolate all the cables from each other and put insulating tape over the bare cables.
  • Now using a multimeter set on 12 volts or above test each cable in turn with the ignition on.
  • You will find one live cable that is only live when you have your ignition in the number one position.
  • This is the live feed to your radio, fit a small amp-age fuse (5 or 7.5 amp) depending on the rating for your new radio.
  • You will have speaker wires, these you can identify by tracing them from each speaker.
  • By now you will have identified your live cable and your speaker cables.
  • You may have a secondary live for a electric aerial and an earth cable. You must earth your radio even if you have to make an earth on the inner bodywork.
  • If you do not need the secondary live then make if safe.
  • If you need the secondary live fit an appropriate fuse.
  • Earth the new radio.
I use this system on used cars before fitting radios/cd players. It works but be careful.
