No sound from my 2005 Corolla speakers

Hi. I have a 2005 Toyota Corolla and recently the sound stopped coming from the speakers. The radio turns on and the digital clock works--but no sound. When I turn the radio off and on a very slight clicking noise comes from the speakers but that is about all. Any ideas on how to fix? I called my local Toyota service center and they suggested buying a new factory radio to the tune of $1500. I thought I would try to troubleshoot common problems before making that kind of investment.

Many thanks in advance!

Re: No sound from my 2005 Corolla speakers

The likely problem is that somehow one of the wires going to the speakers has "grounded out", meaning a wire for some reason is touching the car chassis, therefore shorting out the circuit the same way a lightning rod conducts the lighting into the ground, instead of your home.

A decent car stereo installer should be able to determine the problem. Either it's grounded out, which they can use a meter and connect the probes between ground and each of the 8 speaker wires to determine -or- the radio is faulty, and a new radio can be as cheap as $150, +fit kit, + wiring harness. Don't buy a factory radio replacement because it is a huge rip off and aftermarket ones are much better.

The radio, cigarette lighter and inner light of toyota corolla does not come on. what should i do?

Not to farmiliar with the car but I would check the fuses, some fuse blocks say where the fuses goes, and for some cars you have to check the owners manual, If it is the fuse the first one I would check would be the one for the radio, and if that one is good look for one that says cigar lighter or interior light. Your car should have a fuse listed as at least one of those, or possibly all 3.

I have ford mondeo radio is 6006e model it doesnt turn off with key and when you turn on it says 1 hour before coming on how can i stop this please.

Have you been working on the wiring recently?

It looks as though the permanent battery feed( instead of the Ignition Battery feed) is connected to the Main battery lead in your radio....when it should be connected to the radio memory.
The 1 Hour means a wrong code has been entered
