Question about Pioneer DEH-2100 CD Player

At high volume sound shuts off, subs still work

I recently installed this cd player in my car. It came out of another car and was working perfectly. It is hooked to 4 factory speakers and a kicker amp powering a 10" sub. When I turn it up loud (it happens at different loudnesses, but not low) the 4 speakers stop playing but my sub keeps going. I have to shut the head unit off then turn it back on and everything works again. It does this almost constantly. Any ideas?

You most likely have a shorted or damaged speaker, which is causing the internal amp chip to shut down (but does not affect the preamp outputs). A test you can do is to fade to one speaker at a time and turn it up to se if it shuts down. Repeat with each speaker until you find the one that causes the fault. Then replace it.

When you hooked up your amp, did you hook it directly to the head unit so that it didn't come on with the car? Did you find the inline fuse in the amp positive cable? Few things to check..

check the amp. the "switches" gain,bass boost...etc they might be over powering your subs and heating them up. if those are fine then you mite want to try your subs on another amp...it migt just be that the subs are easily over heating.

Tuner works, however I have no sound for the cd or auxilliary players (MP3/IPOD) Cd's are playing, just no volume


If this was recently installed - chances are good that your installer used the wrong amplifier turn on wire.
You have the amplifier remote and power antenna wires reversed.... so when the am/fm radio turns off, it drops the signal on the antenna - and it retracts.
When you switch to a different source - your amplifier loses its turn-on lead power, and shuts off.
Reverse the blue & Blue/White wires, and you will be fixed. :D

Sound shuts off, sub still works


That is a common problem with this radio, for it can not go to loud without going down in volume or shutting down.

Subwoofer works at high volume, doesnt work at low volume


You had the settings set incorrectly and overdrove it. The voice coil leads are burn't open. If you look at the little flexible braids by the terminals I'll bet they are black/brown and maybe even burn't in half. It's toast.
