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 need to know witch wires go into witch hole on a vrcd400-sdu head unit there is 16 holes total on the back of the wiring harness


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.

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.

Sound from drivers door speaker in my truck.


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

No sound...


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.

NO SOUND!!!


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.
