Question about Pioneer DEH-P4000UB CD Player

My pioneer head unit cuts the audio signal to my speakers

I recently had a sound system installed in my car,

Pioneer head unit.

JL Audio front splits
JL Audio rear speaker

JL Audio Sub & AMp.

any way occassionally the speakers cut out completely. my original thought was that the connections on the rear of the head unit were faulty but that was not the case, wen the speakers do cut out the sub remains operating so my thoughts now are that it is the amp inside the head unit, the speakers will come back after a while and sometimes after a few bumbs in the road, does any one have any ideas for me,

i really want to be able to take care of this myself without having to go through all the **** / time / money of going to a store. any thoughts would be great

Tip

Never Cut The Stock Harness.


The best advise I can give and the worst mistake you can make while trying to install a new head unit into a car is DO NOT CUT THE STOCK HARNESS.

New head units come with bare harness with just wire ends, so you may think you need to cut off the harness on the car to wire it in.

This is the worst thing you can do. As a matter of fact, it is a bad Idea to cut any harness for anything in your car as they make wiring harness adapters to fit every thing in your car.

Before you install your head unit, go to Best Buy, or any car audio place, or on the internet and get a harness to suit the install. For instance if you have a pioneer head unit, and a 2007 Honda, you want a pioneer to 07 Honda wiring harness. This will allow your head unit to connect right into the stock wiring harness.

The same can be done for the speakers as well.

Why would only 5 of 6 speakers work after new head unit car audio install?


Either that speaker is not connected or, the speaker is blown. To test: Disconnect that speaker from the stereo and, using a 9volt battery, tap the speaker's + and - to the battery's + and -. You should hear a "pop". That would indicate that the speaker works. DO NOT connect the 9 volt battery to the stereo side of the speaker wire!!!! 3_24_2016_7_22_43_pm.png

Pioneer DEH-P6500 head unit doesnt turn on


Check your radio fuse. It is likely if you didn't disconnect your battery terminal that you may have blown a fuse.
About the speaker distortion, you may need to install filters to each speaker. They are not very expensive and can be found at just about any electronics store.

Installing a pioneer home theatre dvd/speaker system.


On page 36 of the Pioneer users manual, it describes how to set your audio for HDMI interconnect. Follow the directions, and hopefully it will work. You can down load the manual from the Pioneer web site. Google "speaker system HTZ171 DVD". Click on the Pioneer site for your system and look for the download on the right side of page.

Sounds like a grounded speaker, disconnect each speaker and see if the sound comes back on through the remaining speakers connected. Its sounds like it is just in protection mode from a chssis ground. I hope this helps!

Can't fit subwoofer amp leads to pioneer DEH-2000MP Head unit


pioneer head units only distribute like 200 rms or so to the speakers. you might have to find a blue maybe even blue with white striped wire and nick it just enough to tie your amp wire around it. tape it up and see if it works.

Pioneer car sttereo without manual. front speakers work but rear speakers silent


Press the audio button (A button in right hand upper corner) till you see FADE or BAL press the up down or left right arrows to adjust the fade and balance till all your speakers work.

If they still dont work, check the wiring at the speaker and the wiring behind the head unit to make sure their properly intact and properly grounded.
