Your input's that you need to use are labeled on the rear of the chassis. Make ALL of your connections with the power cord unplugged.
The connection types for each component that you'd like to use are also labeled. For the CD player you may see such connections as coax, optical or L&R...you need to only connect one type. What's available depends on your receiver. For a cassette tape player however there will be only L&R, connect from the L&R outputs of the player into the L&R input on the receiver.
For your speakers, you have a couple of options depending on what you have connected to your speaker cables but the most important thing is getting the polarity connected properly. Not all speaker cables are color coded for polarity but instead have a marking on the insulating sheath along the entirety of it's length or may simply have one silver wire and one copper wire. You only need to make sure that the polarity of the connecting terminals between the receiver and speaker match; having the cables marked is only to make that connection easier...just connect one wire at a time, and make sure that your speaker placement position also matches the terminal you're connecting to.
It could be head dirt, bad switches, broken head wire or electronics problem. A Technician or you if you know electronics will need to get into it further to find where the problem is. There si no magic wand except some alcohol and a Q tip if the heads are dirty.
Clean switches, check head wiring if it is a three head deck and then there could be bad relay contacts, defective electrolytic capacitors and even a malfunction in a muting circuit. That is why there are no easy answer but to get in with a scope and find out where the signal stops.
If you have a female harness to connect to the veicle side you will pretty much color match. The only exception is that you may only have an amp turn on wire but only a power antenna on the vehicle. In this case you would connect blue w/white stripe wire from radio harness to the blue antenna wire on the vehicle side.
If you are doing a hardwire (factory plug has been cut off) you can obtain a wiring code for your vehicle at www.the12volt.com for most vehicles.
The inputs to the LOC should be tapped from your rear speakers. If you have the color code of the wiring from either the cassette player or from the vehicle wiring, tap the wires behind the dash. If you do not have the color code, you can tap directly from the speakers. In either case, it's best to use good quality twisted pair wire and keep the wires as short as possible. Likewise, use good quality RCA cables from the LOC output to your amp location.
The motor is probably faulty. The heat is a give away for that. Many motors for older decks can still be sourced. Can you see what part numbers may be on the back plate of the motor and I can find a source for you. Awaiting your reply
