When I put the CD in the player the CD comes up and the time playing but the volume doesn't play. Is there a trick to it?

Is the radio working fine? Are you using an amplifier? If so, you may be using the blue wire (power antenna remote turn on) instead of the blue/white wire (amplifier remote turn on) to turn you amp on. The antenna remote turns off when leaving tuner mode, turning the amp off.

Plug in the antenna jack into the antenna hole in back of radio. Depending on the car you may need an antenna adapter. Cars that need antenna adapters are VW's, Nissans, New Honda's.

Radio Problem

There is not an easy answer for this one. Some troubleshooting needs to be done. I have seen the Rockford Fosgate system in many of the newer Sentra's. Try hooking a known working speaker to a nonworking position. This will tell if it is a speaker problem. If the problem persists, this could be stereo or amplifier.
Terrible reception troubleshooting, a bad antenna will give poor FM and no AM. If both have bad reception, this is a stereo problem. You can remove the stereo from the dash, place a small pick tool or screwdriver into the antenna jack and test reception. If the reception problem clears, this is a antenna problem. I have seen car detailers pull the connector from the rear window antenna and forget to plug it back in too.
