Re: Radio comes on but no sound

Check your wiring to your speakers or AMP.

If not amp, you may have slipped a wire from the back or wired them backwards.

If AMP, make sure RCA leads are plugged in securely and speaker cabling is entered correctly.

Ater a new radio was installed in a 2006 chevy cobalt, we hear a loud clikning sound coming from the turn signals when they are used.

You need a noise suppressor put on the radio power lead to kill the static. You can get it at radio shack.

No sound new install

More information would be required to help you with this problem properly. If you are using an amplifier and have no sound from it, you may just have the remote turn on of the amplifier not connected. The radio should have a blue wire coming from it and that would be the wire that goes to the amplifier to turn it on when the radio is turned on. If the radio has no sound coming from the speakers connected directly to the radio, you may have a bad speaker, bad speaker wire, or even have the speakers connected wrong.

If you can please give me more information about the install, like what model radio, what type of amplifier, how you have connected the wiring, how many speakers and what the speakers are connected to (an amp or the radio), I can help you figure out the problem. But please understand, since I am not there to look at your install, I can not know how you have connected everything. Are you using a universal wiring harness to connect to the factory harness and your radio? Have you added extra speakers? What wires have you connected to the speakers? If you have an amplifier, have you connected the RCA output of the radio to the RCA input of the amplifier? There are many things that must be connected properly for a sound system to work, if you are not familiar with how they connect together you really should have a professional do it for you. If you furnish the needed information I will be glad to help you further. If you do not furnish the needed information there is really nothing more I can help you with.

The volume or maybe the speakers in my 2002 hyundai sonata stopped working. Radio still comes on but no sound. What can I do.

if you happen to have a speaker available, try to test the stereo. plug in a speaker and see if it works. otherwise, i don't really like this method but, it does work... unlug your factory speaker and plug a 9v battery to the speaker, if you hear a little popping/wizzing sound, the speaker works and it's the head unit.
also, check to see if the radio has an amp. sometimes the radio will be operational, but the amp isn't and that is the problem. and the easy solution is to replace the radio with an after market of choice. factory radio's that are purchased seperately are rather expensive.

I just bought a factory radio to put in my Eclipse. After hooking up all the plugs, radio comes on but no sound comes out of the speakers.

Are you sure that there are speakers currently installed in the vehicle? There may not be, I have seen vehicles that didn't come with factory radios not come with speakers either. If you do have speakers you may want to take the deck back to where you purchased it and show them the problem. If you purchased it online, then you may be stuck with what might actually be a dead unit.

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.

Radio sound stopped

You may have blown the fuse in the fuseholder for the radio power when jumping. Follow any wiores that come off the battery terminals and trace them to a fuse. Check that fuse and replace if needed. Also check fuse on back of radio.
