Re: Dodge Neon Radio

The lights may work because the might be tied in with your parking lights, allowing them to illuminate at night for visibility. First thing's first, did you check the fuses in the fuse panel? Check them all since cars have circuits mixed around and the radio is no exception. OK since all the fuses are good, you'll have to pull out the radio and unplug it from the harness. You will have to use a multimeter which you can get anywhere (wal-mart, etc). Set the meter to DC, put the probe on a bare piece of metal in the radio cavity and use the red probe on the harness. Scout the web for a diagram of your car's harness to know what to meter. Now since everything there is ok, you will have to dig a hole and throw the radio into it because the radio is dead. A new one can be bought for as little as $100. You will need a trim kit to fit it into the weird hole from the the radio and a wiring harness as well to make it match up to your car's harness. Both can be bought on e-bay for cheap. Actually the radio can too.

My subwoofers randomly cut out while driving. In and out in and out. But not the radio and treble. Only the bass. i have a cap hooked up so power shouldnt be an issue

First of all, how hard are you running them. And what system, wattage, and amp do you have. If you have a 2 or more channel amp, and you are bridging it. STOP, doing so does add power to the subs, but it also can add power that the subs cannot handle, and an amount of heat the amp cannot handle. So your amp could be over heating... good luck

Where is the amp located for 1997 ford explorer. I am trying to install an aftermarket radio. I have the harness that I need, but where is the amp and the antenna lead tuner box located in the vehicle?

right side above the rear wheel well -you have to remove the panel which has fasteners everywhere and a few screws under the carpet-might have to get a special antenna adapter too- ford premium stereos are weird like that-good luck

Kicker zx 400.1 amp no power.. is it fried?

Well Friend, the chances that your amplifier is Fried are very low. First of all deactivate the Auto Turn On Feature on the Amplifier. Second, check that the voltage is received at the Power connector of the Lead that is coming from the Battery using the Multimeter to make sure that the Main Fuse is all right. If No Go, then check the Amplifiers fuses thoroughly. Then check if the Protection LED is lit. If it does not work after all of it, get it checked at any local radio shack as I'm sure, it cannot get fried just like that, as it is possible that some internal connection has fried or became loose and will be fixed without spending much. I wish it will help you..

Subs wont play music

Sounds like your RCA's are the source of your problem. Unplug your RCA's before you turn your car on. You may need to isolate your RCA's and the ground wire on the back of your head unit.

6 cd changer in 2001 ford expediation

If the unit will not accept or eject any disks, this is a relatively simple fix. Remove the unit from the vehicle. There are 4 T-9 torx screws on the side of the radio. Remove them and slightly lift the CD mechanism from the radio. There are 2 things that need to be unplugged before you can separate the 2 pieces. The 2 wires simply unplug from the bottom of the cd mechanism. The ribbon cable is locked into the socket, you need to grab the lock and gently pull it away from the circuit board. When unlocked the ribbon cable will simply fall out of the socket. Look through the front of the changer mechanism, are there any disks that look out of place? Gently lift the trays to inspect the disks, if one of the disks is too far back you need to get it into place. Reassemble the deck and see what happens.

Prot. light at High vol. (forget Bass CD)

You may have the speakers wired for the wrong impedance.

How many ohms per voice coil?

How many voice coils per speaker?

If the speakers are DVC, are the coils of each speaker wired in series or parallel?

Are the speakers bridged on the amp or one per channel?
