Question about Road Gear RG-CD411 AM/FM Receiver with CD and Flip-Down Detachable Face, 160 Watt, 3 preset EQ (RGCD...

Open Question

Road gear RG-CD 410 in dash stereo won't work. It worked lately.

I had problems with my in vehicle stereo wiring so I decided to wire directly and taped off my radio wiring. I have a 93 chevy work truck. No frills and radio doesn't work properly. Someone gave me a roadgear radio. I first layed it on the seat and wired it directly to the vehicle and speakers. It worked but had a problem keeping the volume up. I put in a cd and it worked fine. I decided to put it in the truck and now it doesn't work at all. I wondered if I needed a fuse link on the red wire and if so what size fuse. I don't have a user's manual. Also, I tried to look up
road gear on the internet and couldn't find them. The radio says that they are in Lake Mary, Fl. Is that right or did they move or go out of business. I just want my radio to work.

Stereo stops dash display working


It sounds as though your stereo may be improperly wired, or perhaps there is a blown fuse or exposed wire causing a short. I would suggest checking the wiring diagram for your vehicle/stereo, or taking it to car audio store/ whomever installed the unit, and having a technician examine it. I hope this helps =)

I connected a after market stereo in 2000 yukon the stereo turns on but no sound comes out and the stereo good what might be the problem?


If you got the stereo used the speaker wires might not work. I stereo only puts out sound thru the RCA output using an amplifier.

Have a 1996 Toyota Camery. Installed a KDG140 JVC stereo/CD player but the stereo won't work. CD player works great.


If "stereo won't work" refers to you not being able to get radio stations; try your antenna connection behind the radio. The vehicle may also have a power antenna connection(blue wire at the stereo).

Car stereo noise


This is induced noise from the alternator (alternator whine).
It is usually a bad ground from the alternator (or even a failing alternator) adiating through the electrical components of the vehicle.

Instead of using the ground wire from the wire harness of the vehicle - try making your own ground point into the nearest bare metal. in the dash.

If the noise is still present - a lot of noise can be introduced from the main fuse panel as well. Run the constant (direct power) wire from your batter - outside the vehicle and re-test. If the noise is gone, install that wire permanently - avoiding any electrical components as much as possible.

After I pulled the old CD player out of my car the wires end plug dosnt match up to my new Pioneer DEH-11E. Is there a way to make it work or should I take it back.


Hello al_will00,

The color coding of the wires from aftermarket equipment will not match up with vehicle color codes. The new player will work OK when you have matched up the wiring by function. There's 2 ways to do it: 1) Find the color coding of your vehicle wiring and splice/tap into the existing harness; 2) Purchase an aftermarket wiring harness that plug in directly.

The 2nd option is best. It allows you to make all of the connections (usually color for color) sitting at a table or workbench insted of from behind the poorly lighted dash. It also allow you to reinstall the OEM radio if you ever decide to do so. Splicing or tapping will make it more difficult.

I'd visit one of the online retailer like www.crutchfield.com or www.sonicelectronix.com to purchase a wiring harness. You can determine the correct model number from various sources, including the manufacturer, such as Metra here. Just enter your vehicle make, model and year information to see a list that the vehicle.

Hope this helps.

You can go to Walmart and in the stereo/speaker department they have dash kits for different vehicles.Just read the box to determine your vehicle. Also, they have amp kits for different wattage amps, but if you had rather buy each item you will need, a Power Wire (to the battery 4g or 8g), a ground wire (to the chassey), a remote wire that should run to a wire from your cd player saying remote (any size is fine), speaker wire (14g or 16g is fine) a set of RCA cables, and if your cd player dosnt have RCA jacks you will have to have a converter.

Car Radio just stoped working.


My same model did this too. The wiring harness may have gone bad. Try direct wiring the stereo or replacing the wiring harness if you can get one. This fixed the problem for me.

Installing an aftermarket CD player.


Go to a stereo sales & installation shop, or even auto parts places usually have them now too, and get an adapter harness for your particular vehicle. They plug directly in to your existing harness, then you simply wire your new stereo to it,via directions. Few bucks now, will save hours of aggravation later,.and if you decide to sell vehicle later, and put old one back in, it's all there to plug back in, nice & clean.
