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.
I had the same problem and all I did was buy new wires the ones that came with the stereo itself burned up and seased to work. now I paid $6.00 for it at best buy. they look the same colored wires as the ones that came in it.

I got the wrong adapter for my antenna and tried to do that you may be able to get it rigged in there but the reception will be horrible they cost like two dollars just go to a car audio place and tell them you need one
I would suggest calling or find online Crutchfield. They have been car stereo experts for many years. They sell harnesses for just about any car allowing you to plug in your stereo directly to the existing harness. I guarantee they will know!
you don't stick wires in the holes. they make a male harness for the female harness you're messing with. your radio should have a harness that plugs into it with wires connected to it. then you buy the install harness for your year, make, and model car along with a dash kit if needed. then you proceed to connect the color coded wires from the head unit harness to the install harness you bought WITH CRIMP CONNECTORS. not packing tape or shrink wrap or any other thing you can think of to insulate the bare wires. crimp caps or **** connectors with electrical tape works fine.
check your speaker wire, sounds like the insulation is cut somewhere and thewire is grounding out. that is why the crackling and low sound. your speaker wire is grounding out or wire is broken, start at the speaker and follow wire to find the break
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.
check all your fuses and then take the face plate off and push the reset button. if that doesnt work just check the wire connections sometimes if the wires dont have enough contact they want work. i had that issue when i upgraded the speakers in my jeep the connections were not good enough.
