Many car stereos use an anti-theft pass-code scheme. If the stereo is removed from the vehicle, lock-off is triggered by the loss of battery power to the stereo, and the only way to get it to turn on is to enter the pass-code on the front panel buttons. If you had to disconnect the battery, or it went completely dead on you, that's your problem. Check the manual for your stereo for details.

Note: some stereos requiring entering the pass-code before disconnecting the battery - for those who might have such systems, save yourself some grief and check your user's manual ASAP so you are prepared.

Another possibility is a shorted speaker amplifier has blown the radio fuse. Check the speaker wiring for damaged insulation before you install the repaired or replaced stereo. A competent electronic technician can generally check the amplifier modules or transistors for shorts and replace them as needed. Be sure to ask which speaker output is bad so you know which one needs a wiring check.

Car stereo just randomly stop work doesnt allow me to turn up volume or change stations or set it to aux none of the buttons work but the stereos turns on.. what could it be???


Well knowing what stereo you have would help, but mine, the volume knob doubles as the settings knob if you press it. In some newer systems like mine, you should find a "back" button (small arrow) like on a cell phone. Trying using that to escape the settings mode that you might have activated.

Car stereo problems


Do you have an amp? Remote wire might have come loose and the amp is telling the speakers to stop playing. Or, you might just have a setting problem, like it\'s turned on to just the rear and the rear is set to sub. Try dinking with the settings and running flat eq....(+/- 0 on bass treb and mid). If not, then there is a master plug in the back of the system: unplug and plug back in. If none of this works, trace the speaker wires back and make sure they are connected and not melting somewhere hot.

The stereo just stopped working.


If you remove the pcm there is a small 10a fuse in the back, to remove the pcm remove both centre console side panels and turn the 4 (2 each side) allen screws 1/4 turn, also dont forget a small 6 or 7 mm screw on nearside of pcm that needs to be loosened. otherwise try a software reset by disconnecting the battery with ignition on and reconnecting after a couple of mins. hope this helps

Stereo stopped working along with speedometer


It's probably not a fuse. It sounds like your vehicle speed sensor went bad in the transmission. The reason your radio stopped working was because your radio is probably equipped with speed sensitive volume and it requires a speed signal to work.

Clarion DXZ655MP Speakers worked then stopped...


sounds like the ohm load of your speakers is incorrect and overloaded the amp,....check all your specs, i.e. max, min ohm load on stereo, and speakers,...this stuff is important and must be within the range allowed or stuff like your experiencing happens,.....it's happened to me before,.....fried my amp because i had house speakers in my van, was great for about 3 loud days,....good luck, cracklin joe,.......
