CDX-GT300 DOESNT PLAY BASS FOR CD, AUX PLUG IN, OR IPOD CONNECTOR

I recently moved this head unit to a different car and got it connected and tested it out with the radio, it seemed to work fine and sounded great. i finished installing it. once it was in i put a cd in to test it out one more time, the cd played the music but it was all treble no bass. i then tried hooking up my ipod, same thing. the radio works fine and all the fade and balance are set correctly along with the bass being up. i have all stock speakers. i tried contacting sony but they haven't been any help so far. SO SOMEONE PLEASE PLEASE HELP ME!!!!!!!

You may have dealt with this by now or have since gotten rid of the unit, but see this post - i think it answers your question. http://www.fixya.com/support/t603858-no_sound_from_cd_or_aux_cdx_gt32w
I moved my cdx-gt300 today and ran into a glitch and was reading up here. Saw your post and realized it was answered for another person.

I recently jumpex my car... 2000 xterra. Radio work fine but volume knob doesnt respond. No volume up or down and no sound at all..... help plz.


Check all your fuses under the dash and under the hood, replace any blown fuses you find. Sometime the car makers put 2 or 3 fuses in different locations for the same unit. If everything seems ok, then I'd say when you used jumper cables, if the radio was powered on at the time you may have blown the amplifier and it would be time to replace the radio.

Im replacing the radio with an aftermarket, i have installed it with proper wiring harness but the new head unit will not turn on. any suggestions?


Go to the Crutchfield site and check just in case you are missing something. They probably sell the same radio and in a pinch you can call them and tell them you can't get it to work; someone should be able to help you out. They do offer great speakers and trim panels to make it look like a factory pro install too.

How do you connect ipod to head unit?


If there is a port for an iPod cable then you just pull head unit and connect it. Most people run it out and through the glove box. If there is no port for it then you have to buy a kit.

Crutchfield .com has all that stuff and if not, go to your local car audio shop and ask them to rip you off for the parts and installation.

Radio sound goes on and off--the closest radio stations won't even pick-up. If you bump the side of the unit it will play GREAT for a short, very short time just fine then back to on and off soun


sounds like you have a loose wire, what wires are you moving under the hood... do you mean behind the head unit? i'd trace each wire individually until you find one that has a poor connection, if they have wire crimps on them so you can't tell, cut them off one at a time and re-crimp them/twist them together.

My fuel gage is reading full at all times and the radio will not come on is this a fuse issue or two different issues?


You definitely have two different issues as the fuel gauge and radio are on different circuits. The radio could be a blown fuse, which would require finding a short circuit. The fuel gauge could be as simple as a bad connection at the sending unit or a lost ground on the fuel tank. Disconnect the fuel gauge at the tank and with a twelve volt test light well grounded probe the harness terminals with the key on (engine off). The fuel gauge should move when the sending unit wire is probed, and the test light should light dimly. Other terminals are a ground for the sending unit, a ground for the fuel pump, and power for the fuel pump. If the gauge moves when the sending unit wire is probed the problem is either the sending unit or a bad harness connection. If the gauge doesn't move during the probe there is a wiring problem (open circuit) or a bad dash gauge. Hope this helps.

Hello my car is equipped with a Sony CDX-L410X head unit and i want to be able to connect my ipod directly to the head unit. the head unit does not have an aux or usb port on the front does it have an...


Hello! Maybe I can help with your question. This model headunit does not support ipod control. It does not have rear or front inputs via 1/8mm jack that you could use the headphone output. You only have a couple of options here. First would be to purchase a wireless fm modulator that would transmit the ipod output through your cars antenna. (i.e. set the radio to 88.1, 88.3, etc) These can be purchased at Radio Shack, Wal-Mart, etc. The only other option would be to replace the headunit with a compatable unit. We sell a Kenwood for $139 that has a front USB port as well as the aux input. The USB on this unit reads droid phones and ipod. That model number is KDC-248U. Hope this helped! Good luck with your venture!

I drive a 1993 Mercedes Benz 300D and the radio recently stopped working. If you turn it on, 5 clicks sound through the speakers and then the messege "E2" comes over the screen and the radio shuts off.


Here are some causes for this failure: "E2"or "E3" (Without CD Changer)

1 Input Power to the RECEIVER UNIT (Trunk mounted) is missing, Check with volt meter to test for 12 volts
2 Fuse of the RECEIVER UNIT (Trunk mounted) is open, Replace it with 7.5 amp fuse.
3 The BUS CABLE (gray colored) that connects to HEAD UNIT(dash mounted) to the RECEIVER UNIT(trunk mounted) is not connected or is defective.
4 RECEIVER UNIT(trunk mounted) is defective. Go through these and try your radio. Hope this works out for you.

How to hook up a head unit to an amplifier,when the head unit has no RCA plug ins? It was done before in my old car now i cant remember how.


Here is a link to owners manual for Sony CDX-GT300.
http://www.docs.sony.com/release/CDXGT300.pdf
Here is a link to installation instructions. It looks to me that there are front and rear line out RCA connectors on the back side of your head unit. (Unless, this is not the model of your head unit)
http://www.docs.sony.com/release/CDXGT300_Installation_Guide.pdf
There are devices that are capable of converting speaker level output to line level (RCA) output. I know Scoch is one brand, and here is a link to others.
