check for a logo that shows a speaker with a cross(X) across. just switch this back. this is also available on the remote. You could normally find this on the top side so as to mute easily when in a traffic junction. Check if this button is jammed. Also check if the display shows a mute , if not the sound reduction could be a different issue related to the audio output. check if any speaker connections are short, or speakers connections touching the body. Chek on the wiring once again with a multimeter , for any shorting, correct positve voltage and good ground. hope this helps. Good day
It is not reading the cd. The laser is dirty, out of alignment, or bad. If it is under warranty, contact Aiwa. If it is not, you should just replace it. Just to take the lid off, and find out what is wrong will cost you about $80 at most repair shops. For $120 you can buy a new am fm cd with Ipod control and USB port. Hope this helps.
The part you are looking for is called the "wiring harness" or sometimes called the "dc cord"
The best way to buy this (and you do need it to use the radio) is to find a local repair center that repairs aiwa car stereos. Ask them if they can order the wiring harness for an Aiwa CDC-X517M. I don't know what Aiwa charges for them, but it should not cost more than about $30 or $40. Some are cheaper and some are a little more.
I did a search for it on google and could not find anything. Very unusual.
The four spots you refer to are the RCA jacks to connect to an external amplifier. 2 are red and 2 are white.
That thing that plugs in above the 15 amp fuse is for your wiring harness.
The circular thing is a din cable jack and that is used for an external CD changer.
Once you get the wiring harness you should take it and the radio to a place that does car stereo installations and they can do the rest for you.
I hope this helps you out, and if it does I would really appreciate a good rating. Most people we help here never rate your help :( and we do most of this for free hoping for a good rating as a thank you for the help :).
Keep in mind that there are always two fuses in any vehicle that provide power to the radio. One fuse is for switched power, one for constant power. Both fuses need to be good before the radio will work. Often one of the fuses, especially the constant power fuse, is shared with other electrical circuits and may not be labeled as a radio fuse.
Check all the fuses in the vehicle, including any fuse box under the hood. See if any other electrical systems in the car aren't working, especially the dome light, cigarette lighter, door chime buzzer, or clock.
GO to WallMart, Kmart, Radio Shack, etc. and get a new connector adapter (plug)...they're reasonably priced, have them for all make/models of cars, and make installing a car stereo a breeze! When you get the one for your specific car, the wiring instructions are quite easy to follow! :-)
