Car CD player plays but has no sound

The radio part of the CD player works fine. The CD player was just installed about a week ago and since then I have purchased another of the same brand and model (Sony CDX-GT33W) and installed it only to have the same problem. The car is a Chrysler Concord.

    Tried connecting the amp wire to the ground, but had no change. Then after more research discovered that the previous radio (Crystler Infiniti model) required the amp wire to be connected to the power antenna wire. After wiring it like that the cd player is now working. Thanks for the advice, it got me started in the right direction.

Does your car have a premium sound system? Assuming that your cd deck is fine, try connecting your remote turn on wire from the sony to the corresponding wire on the car(if you bought a wiring harness, just match colors). Also some chryslers used a ground to turn on the amps.. a black wire with a female connector as well as a heavy ground ribbon cable... connect those 2 AND the ground to your stereo to enable the amplifiers.

Do you have the radio hooked up to an amplifier? If so, it sounds like you are using the blue wire (antenna remote turn on) instead of the blue/white wire (amplifier remote turn on) to turn the amp on. The antenna remote wire turns off when leaving tuner mode.

Jensen cd player no longer working(self-installed)


First check the wiring to the radio. You may measure the power being ok but you also need to make sure the ground connection is ok. If this is all ok it may be that you have dry solder joints on wiring socket inside the radio or a blown track or protection diode.

Clarion radio sound flickers


make sure your wirings are rated to handle the current needed by your radio. You might have a large voltage drop when it is at high volume level because it will draw lots of current. You might need to change the size of your wires to your Clarion. Check the voltage near the radio when it starts to flicker if it goes below the source voltage of 12V. hope this helps

CDA 9885 No idea why it suddenly stopped working


It sounds like you have a bad ground connection. You need to take the radio out and check all the connections. I bet you have a loose one somewhere. That is what the problem was with my bronco

JVC KD-NX5000 NOT WORKING PROPERLY


I had the same problem, where the Sat radio, the bluetooth and the ipod were all non-functional. Turns out, they all go through one central hook-up, so you have to make sure that connection is good.

When mine did not show up or function, I looked at the install under the foot board of the front passenger seat that the installer did, and nothing looked out of whack. Upon closer inspection, one of the cables was had been pressed out of it's proper place and loosened enough to cause a bad connection.

I don't care for the install, but there was no problem with the equipment, so check all of your connections. Even to the point of pulling them out and reconnecting them to see if that fixes the problem.
