Question about Car Audio & Video Accessories

I have a 98 ford expedition. i am changing the stock tape deck to a jvc cd player. i am getting power to the new deck but no sound. i have a stock 6 disc changer in the arm rest of the car. would this have anything to do with me not getting sound? i have tested the jvc head by bypassing the wires and running it directly to a speaker to see if i got sound and i did.....what might be the issue?

Find the factory remote wire that powers the stock amplifier and wire that to the remote wire on the head unit that will turn on the amp and you will have sound

Its simple that model may be equipped with factory amplifier and cannot transmit to speakers unless bypassed and wired directly to speakers after amplifier but if unsure go to crutchfield.com and get help! or call local audio dealer. Also if you purchase wiring and installation kit it will bypass that.

Your best would be to buy a harness adapter to connect the new deck through the adapter into the existing OEM wire harness connector. It makes things so much easier and more reliable.

Hi David, since there's no english language support in honda navi systems, my suggestion is to scrap the head unit and buy an aftermarket one. Kenwood or JVC 2-din units are compatible with honda system. If you have steering control, install SWI interface module (google: pac swi). Ff you have reverse camera, make sure the player have CCD input.

My car speakers cut out when i turn my volume to loud what could the problem be i have stock speakers in a 02 chevy truck and a brand new jvc radio


Hello soccer_fr704,

Sounds like the JVC is overdriving the speakers. Most OEM speakers are just not designed to handle more than 12-15 watts RMS and the JVC is rated at 22 watts.

About the only solutions are to keep the volume really low or replace the speakers with ones that can handle the power from an aftermarket receiver. New speakers will make that JVC sound better, too.

Hope this helps.

Im tryin to replace the tape deck in my ford ka


Rather than cutting wires i'd advise you to buy a pc2-17-4 autoleads ford harness. you can get them in a shop such as halfords or on ebay for between £3.50 to £10. You can plug this directly into the car and straight into the radio you are installing provided it has a standard iso block on it. it means when you sell car you can reinstall the old radio and take new one with you. Plus no tedious wire cutting.
