    Fixed by connecting the "power antenna" wire (I don't have a power antenna).

Here is the solution:

Their is a chrysler amplifier some where in your pacifica.In order for your signal to reach the speakers you need to buy a box (from bestbuy install ,or any car stereo install place)that allows the signal to "pass thru"to the speakers.

I had the same problem and here's what fixed it. By default, I did not connect the blue/white striped remote wire to the harness. Apparently there is an amp somewhere in the vehicle I did not know about. After looking at the factory wiring and the aftermarket harness, I noticed that the remote wire was used and I connected it with the remote wire on the harness and everything came up and worked perfect.

Hi, had total issues with this too! Your back speakers arent going because they are amped by the factory amp in the boot. You have to provide power to the amp so that it will turn the rear speakers on. This was a white and black striped wire in my car (Audi A3 1997) The rear speakers are blue /green and brown/red (left rear) , and the LH rear is brown/red and (forgotten colour) but the wire on the bottom left under those two brown/red wires on the 20pin harness. If you wire it all up like this then your rears should be going :)

Testimonial: "So sorry for the very long delay in replying to your advice. It was the sub/amp in the boot as you correctly guessed. Another £200! Many thanks Pal"

It sounds like you may have the negative and positive polarity wrong usually to the speakers. I suggest to use black for negative and red for positive so that each speaker is correct. Speaker wire is good but for self installs its a common mistake.

I put in a NEW RADIO IT'S A KENWOOD BUT THERE'S NO SOUND TO THE SPEAKERS .RADIO TURNS ON AND EVERYTHING WRKS BUT NO SOUND.


Check the original wire harness to find the power wire for the factory installed amplifier. Hook the antenna/accessory wire from the new Kenwood unit to it to trigger the factory amp. I'm going to take a stab in the dark and say it's a Jeep Grand Cherokee ant the amplifier is under the rear seat. That information (model and Year) would have helped. Please rate my assistance and leave a testimonial to assist others.

No AM radio?


Try pressing down on the directional pad located on the right side of the stereo, this should bring you to the AM setting. If that doesn't work, make sure you have the proper antenna cable installed as well as the proper wiring harness.

Kenwood ks-122 in-dash car stereo/cd changer


hello chevi1981..what can happen is if whoever installed your system did not run your speaker wires properly eg if they have worn through and touching metal or a screw through the wires ,it can blow the audio ics in unit resulting in no sound.all these high powered units have above ground circuits in the audio stage .to check ,hook up a separate speaker direct to your unit,separate wiring ,if no sound, will most likely be the intergrated circuits..these will have to be changed by a tech as cd players are a beast to work on,also your 2 speaker wires should not touch one another.with your sec code if your have a removable face you may not have a code ,as removing face is your security .hope this helps
