I have a 1989 oldmosbil cutlass ciera and i upgraded to a new pioneer radio and it keeps saying amp error after a few moments of playing . What do i do


This is referring to the internal amp. Make sure none of the speaker wires are touching each other or metal. if the only speakers hooked up are the 6x9's then one or both of them probably has a bad voicecoil and is shorting out causing the radio to protect itself. Replace the 6x9's and you should be okay.

Power but no sound help plz....


well here we go how do you have your pioneer radio connected .
did you run the radio speaker wire out to the factory speaker or did you have an amp connected to the rca output jacks.

1 well if the radio connect by the speaker wire out the
output chip in the radio is fried and needs repair ....

2. if u have a amp connected to power your speakers for sound
check the amp to make sure you have power and no lose connection or speaker wires disconnected.
3. it also possible that the rca jacks are fried too


I no by experience that pioneer loses ground on the audio output jack (rca) well what we did to fix it is..
take and 18 gauge wire stripe back about 1/2" to 1" of the insulation to expose the copper wire and wrap this around the metal casing of the rca jacks and then ground the wire to a ground point do this for both left and right rca jacks...

My Pioneer car stereo stops all audio signal after a couple of minutes regardless whether i'm playing a CD or the radio, but the stereo stays on. and the CD seconds and minutes still count, do you know why...


Check your connections to your speakers and amp and look for loose wires touching metal. I believe your stereo is fine, this has something to do with your speakers and the speaker wire

Deh1500 no sound


no mute button, but if there is a short in one of the speakers, wire touching, contacts touching metal, the radio will go in to protect, and you will loose all sound. best way to trouble shoot is to disconnect the speakers, and hook one good speaker to the radio, if you have sound, connect one speaker in the car at a time to the radio, until you find the bad one.

Jensen vm9411 has no sound from radio hookups put rca wires have sound


If the previous radio played all the speakers and the new one wont either:
1. You have not hooked the speakers up right.
2. All your speakers are blown.
3. There is a factory amp, you just don't know about it.
4. The radio has blown final outputs.
5. One or more speakers or speaker wires is seeing a ground (shorted out)

First check the radio, hook up a know good test speaker directly to the speaker outputs on the radio. If it works, then take a 9volt battery and try to pop the inside speakers with it. When you touch the + & - speaker wires to the battery + &- you should hear a pop at the speaker. If you do you don't have an amp. If you don't you might have an amp or the wire going to the speaker is dead or shorted out. It is unlikely that all four speakers would be bad or have bad wires. If none of them will pop you need to turn on the factory amp. Then they will play. If only one speaker wont pop then that is the bad speaker. If they all pop then you have a bad speaker or wire.

Radio


Check the connections on all the pins, If it is a plug and play adaptor, check your fuses, but most likely the speaker connections are slightly loose, which is causing the lack of sound. I find when removing stereos if the wires are shorter they disconnect, but stay in the housing.

No sound


you simply have a speaker shorting in your car. Either an old speaker with a bad voice coil (short) or a speaker who's contact(s) are touching metal. This type of short or grounding will cause the internal audio amplifier to shut off to protect the radio's output circuit. To diagnose which speaker is the culprit, you'll need to disconnect all speaker leads from the radio and one by one re-connect them until the output shuts down again. The safe way to check is with a voltmeter. If you connect one side of your voltmeter to ground and test each speaker wire lead for continuity, you'll hear an audible "beep" whe you find the grounded wire/contact. A professional car audio shop can diagnose this for you if you're still having difficulty. Hope this information was helpful.
