Are the speakers connected to the KDR640 directly or they are connected to another amplifier?

1995 camaro z28 audio problems

Hi Jamie, Here's an old trick which you may find useful. Take a run down flashlight cell and confirm the wiring to the speakers by holding the earthing line of the speaker cable to the negative and flash the positive side with the feed to the speaker one at a time. With each swipe you will hear a thump from each speaker as you connect and disconnect. In that way you can confirm the cables are the ones you are connecting. Color coding is not always the same. Use a voltage test meter to confirm the constant power and ignition power and don't forget to earth the set once all other connections have been made, Withour an earth it won't work, but you know that anyway. Regards John

2002 Suburban clicks when trying to start.

Yes it could be your starter the fact that you hear the click tells you that the starter solenoid is in fact working. Do check your connections for looseness or corrosion prior to starter replacement and fix as needed. Possibly has a dead spot on the starter that won't allow starter motor to turn even though the solenoid engages.

I switched out my radio in my 2000 pontiac montana...hooked up new stereo and it will not work. It work fine in my other car. I tried two radios in the montana and it will not work. everything is hooked up...

Hello... sorry to hear you are having a problem. The theftlock system does not pertain to anything aftermarket that you do. The theftlock only locks down the factory radio if it is removed, and only if it was activated before it was removed. There was a red led light on the radio. With the vehicle turned off, if the light on the radio flashed, then it was activated. If you hook the factory radio back up then you will have to enter the code to unlock it. Since you used a wire harness adapter, check the red wire and make sure you have 12v current on that line. You didnt state if the radio powers up with no sound or if it doesnt power up at all. If it powers up with no sound, then check to make sure that the blue/white wire is hooked to the blue wire on the adapter harness. Let me know if you are having no sound or no power and I can help you further with this problem.

Installing a new radio

first of all u need a test light hook one end to ground check for positive power with the other end of the test light. One of the wires comming from the vehicle will show power with ignition on and light switch on this is dimmer wire for speaker location get a nine volt battery put two wires to it {not your power or ground wires} you should hear a buzzing noise this would tell you speaker location .

Rear door speakers don't work w/ aftermarket radio in 94 suburban

You need to attach the blue wire on the stereo harness to the blue and white wire on the car adapter harness. they installed a small amplifier to power the rear door speakers and unless you connect those two wires then the speakers will not work.
