Question about Car Audio & Video

1 Answer

I have a 1999 Chevrolet Suburban with the factory radio. The radio works fine but when I put in a cd and turn the volume up some, it just stops playing for about 20 sec. It will come back on at a very low volume. If I leave the volume low the cd will play fine all the way through. Do I just need a new radio? It worked fine until a week ago.

Sounds like your popping the breaker, after a while your speakers will go, theres just too much power for it to handle, take it to a car audio store and get them to test it, you may need new speakers

Installed new cd player and it wont power on


this happened to me in one of my cars, I bet that if you put the factory radio back in it will work just fine, most of the radios components, are part of systems wiring and used to send signals to ecm to let car start

Sounds like the motor inside player is shot. You will have to pull out player, remove top cover, remove 2 screws holding cradele and remove your cd. Than either install new player or have a new motor put in yours.

2000 Chevy Suburban radio not working


Sounds like an internal problem with the radio. There are places that repair factor radios, but for the money, you are better off buying an aftermarket radio. There is a company called Scoche (spelling) that sells a good line of wiring adapters and mounts for aftermarket radios so you can install them yourself. You can get a good radio (some with the new HD radio) and CD player for under $150. The mount kits run about $15 and the wiring harness runs about $10....all abailable at Best Buy or Wal Mart

MY FACTORY RADIO VOLUME PROBS


More than likely with a 2003, the speakers that cut out are in the door or doors. Do they cut out of both speakers?

If they cut out of one, then you may have an intermittent speaker ( the wire to the cone becomes partially connected)

If both speakers turn off at the same time and you hear NOTHING on all speakers, then you more than likely have an intermittent connection on the radio itself and probably replacement is probably cheaper than fixing the radio.

One more thing
Factory radios sometimes have an amplifier in them. Sounds funny but they call the Radio in the dash the Head Unit and the amplifier is buried in the dash. You could have a bad amplifier or a loose power connection to it, but that is very unlikely.

Hope this helps.

2004 Chevy Trailblazer radio and CD player works, but no sound


if you have installed a new cd player in there then the propblem could be that your speaker wires and either touching each other or grounding them selfs out.. pull of the cd player and check to make sure all the speaker wires are covered properly and no bare wires are exposed.. if you still have a factory cd player in it then you will probably need to take it to a dealership to have it checked out..
