I just installed a New Panasonic CQ-C1305U CD/stereo into my daughters 1993 Isuzu Rodeo all the functions are working fine but I do not get any auto out of the unit in CD function or FM function. I verified the wiring with a meter and all the voltage inputs are correct. I even cycled the mute function on and of several time but I still have no sound to the speakers. The old radio that I removed also had the same problem so I bought this new one to replace the old one and have the same problem. I also tried another speaker and the problem remained. Do you have any suggestions.

Re: No sound from CQ-1305U car CD/stereo
You may have one of this two problems:
One of the speaker wires is grounded to the chassis.
Or your car may have a factory amplifier between the radio and the speakers.
My suggestion is to rewire the speakers lines

I would get an stereo installation kit from Auto Zone or a local automotive audio store. It will come with the surround for the new stereo to fit where the old stereo went, and a wiring harness to hook the new stereo up to and plug into the existing car wiring.
here are the wire colors and what each does. 1994 Isuzu Rodeo Car Audio Wiring Guide

A few weeks ago I bought a new JVC stereo for my 2001 Isuzu Rodeo. I was advised that using a wiring harness would be the best option to install it. I spent an entire Saturday going from one store to the next (Autozone, Advance Auto Parts, Radio Shack, etc.) looking for the wiring harness specific to an Isuzu Rodeo but, to no avail. I searched several online sites looking for one and finally found it at http://www.beachaudio.com/ . The cost of the harness was under $10 and with express shipping I only paid about $20. Since I ordered it on a Wednesday night with 3 day express shipping, I assumed that I'd receive it the following Monday given any processing time and the weekend but, it was delivered to me just two days later. My husband installed my new stereo that Sunday using the harness that I purchased and it works great! Hope this information helps.
