Question about Roadmaster (VR500CSBT)

NO SOUND AFTER INSTALLING VRCD400-SDU

I own a 1994 F-150 Ford Truck, remove the original factory radio, purchased Ford connectors and spiced the wires according to color codes on purchased connector packet and the color codes on connector supplied with the VRCD400-SDU. Radio comes on, display shows stations, reads USB port but no sound; not even a hiss.

Please help and thank you,
ALB

    I have the same exact problem, I can even put a CD in and it won't even give me a squeak. I installed the VR500CS-BT unit. I installed it ground up as there was a short in the factory wiring. But all continuity tests check out on the wiring I ran. This is on a 1990 Honda Accord.

    I'd describe my problem too, but it is the same. Someone has to know something!

I have a VRCD400-SDU displays and modes but no sound.


The radio's output amplifier has failed.
Most of the time this is due to a blown speaker.
Repair is not recommended - as it exceeds the replacement value of the radio.

Hi XX,

Let's try the easy ones first:
1. try to do a reset of the unit;
2. check that all the speaker wirings are:
2.1 connected properly following the wiring diagram;
2.2 not bare/exposed and touching any metal part/chassis;
3. verify that the MUTE is not enabled;
4. try all signal sources: AM/FM, CD, SD Card, USB, AUX;
5. verify that the SEL is set to SUB OFF;
6. replace the CR-2025 Lithium battery of the remote.

If your concern has not been corrected after completion of the above procedures, you may need to:
a. open the unit for a loose connection and/or other diagnosis;
b. ask assistance from the manufacturer's Technical Service at 1-800-445-1797;
c. return the unit for a replacement.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Problem installing car stereo


THE FIAT BRAVO HAS A STANDARD ISO CONNECTION WHICH SHOULD PLUG INTO MOST AFTERMARKET STEREOS AND THEREFORE YOU WON'T NEED TO KNOW THE COLOUR CODE, IF THERE ISN'T ANY PLUG ON THE STEREO BUY AN ISO PLUG THEY'RE NOT EXPENSIVE AND CONNECT IT TO THE RADIO AND JUST PLUG IT INTO THE CAR HARNESS, YOU DON'T REALLY WANT TO CUT THE CAR'S WIRING
