re check speaker connector going to the car radio, then if you can remove the cover of the car radio try to touch the amplifier ic if it is hot. if yes, then it was bad need replacement.by the way the unit was a brand new ?.
The radio SERIAL NUMBER is required for a code
First remove the radio from the dashboard.
Then post the radio make+model plus all the letters+numbers on any labels,barcodes or stamped in the metal casing.
This information can then be used to see if a code can be calculated
The radio SERIALNUMBER will be required for calculating a code
On some radios, pressing Buttons 6 and 1 or 6 and 2 (together) maydisplay a Serial Number
If not , then removethe radio from the dashboard.
Then post all the letters+numbers on any labels,barcodes or stamped inthe metal casing.
This information canthen be used to see if a code can be calculated
First make sure that the code has not been noted somewhere within the car (underneath the ash tray, glove box , rear of sun visor etc)
To see if your code is available here for free then the radio will have to be removed from the dashboard (and if you are lucky, someone may have written the code on the casing ) .
If not then POST ANOTHER QUESTION
quoting the radio MAKE+MODEL plus ALL the LETTERS+NUMBERS on ANY LABELS ,BARCODES or STAMPED IN THE METAL CASING
note: Unfortunately not all radios can be decoded using the Serial Number
If not then try your Main Dealer ...........or take it into a Decode Service who will plug in a laptop to read/recode the memory chip (EEPROM). This takes a few minutes and shouldn`t be too expensive ================================================= Here is a video showing how to remove your radio from the dashboard. A pair of extractors are required (available from Ebay , etc) but these can be made from 2 pieces of bent, wire coat-hanger or 4 small drills(using the blunt end) or 4 small Allen Keys or 4 small screwdrivers or 4 nails or even 4 darts.
An assistant is useful to pull the radio out whilst you are releasing the 4 securing clips
The radio will have to be removed from the car dashboard .Then please quote the MAKE + MODEL of your radio plus ALL the LETTERS and NUMBERS on any LABELS , BARCODES or STAMPED IN THE METAL CASING. Also quote the MAKE of CAR it is fitted into. Please note: Not all stereo codes can be calculated from the Serial Number
You can get the code online for a couple of quid just google it ,but you will need to remove the head unit from your car to get model and serial numbers of the unit the keys to remove the radio r quite cheap and r available at most car audio retailers or car spares shops,hope this helps.
