If the previous radio played all the speakers and the new one wont either:
1. You have not hooked the speakers up right.
2. All your speakers are blown.
3. There is a factory amp, you just don't know about it.
4. The radio has blown final outputs.
5. One or more speakers or speaker wires is seeing a ground (shorted out)

First check the radio, hook up a know good test speaker directly to the speaker outputs on the radio. If it works, then take a 9volt battery and try to pop the inside speakers with it. When you touch the + & - speaker wires to the battery + &- you should hear a pop at the speaker. If you do you don't have an amp. If you don't you might have an amp or the wire going to the speaker is dead or shorted out. It is unlikely that all four speakers would be bad or have bad wires. If none of them will pop you need to turn on the factory amp. Then they will play. If only one speaker wont pop then that is the bad speaker. If they all pop then you have a bad speaker or wire.

Tv has sound but no picture


Should be the same bypass. Do you get any message when you put it on a TV station? Guess what, after Feb 17th, it won'y matter anyway unless you're going to get a digital converter for it!

Try grounding the pink brake wire and see if that does anything. As far as I remember, that bypass is for ALL video on the screen. Let me know.

Most DVD head units have one extra wire in their wiring harnesses, compared to a standard CD head unit. On mine, it's a peach-colored wire, and is the activation wire for the DVD feature. During the installation, the instructions call for this wire to be tapped into the emergency brake indicator light wire. The reason is this:

The e-brake indicator light is what is called a "ground complete" circuit. That means that the bulb always has power applied, but when you pull the brake, that puts a ground to the wire and completes the circuit, allowing it to illuminate. The head unit sees this ground, and activates the DVD player.

In my Jensen unit, I simply ran this wire to a ground (I used a screw near the fuse box), and I put a switch on the wire, so I could break the ground contact at will. Jensen calls for a procedure to activate DVD playback. In their instructions, they tell you to select DVD from the option menu, and when the "lawyer screen" comes up (the blue one warning you to park before you watch a movie), you release the e-brake for 3-5 seconds, and then reapply it. To simulate that with the switch I used, I leave the switch closed (activated), and select DVD. Then I flip the switch "off" for 3-5 seconds, and flip it back "on". This tricks the head unit into thinking I put the e-brake off for a few seconds and then put it back on, and the movie will start. Then I can drive away.

Basically, ground the wire that is used for DVD activation, and put a switch inline on it. Then you can break and reapply the ground in whatever manner is required by the manufacturer of your head unit. If there is no off/on sequence with yours, as there is with mine, simply ground the wire to a screw inside the dashboard and you're done.

Check to make sure your vehicle does not have a factory amplifier. If you used a fit kit with wiring harness. try looking at how many wires were used in the factory unit compared to haw many you are using now. see if there are extra wires in the vehicle. If there is extra wires it is a pretty good clue the vehicle has an amplifier and will have to be rewired.
