How do i get my monsoon car stereo working again amp model # 2264744


I assume this is the one you put into your car (I answered the other question) if the radio anti theft is on you would need to get a dealer to run the serial number of the unit and get you the codes....assuming the previous didn't change it. You might come out cheaper changing the radio out with an aftermarket unit. Any unit can be used with the factory monsoon system. (I have done this in my 04 grand am monsoon). All you need is the radio of your choice and an installation kit and wiring harness adapter. You do not need the GM integration harness as long as you don't care about losing the door chime, key in ignituon chine, etc. You will need to run a switched ignition wire for the new radio as the factory one uses a data wire instead. It's just a matter of running a wire to a fuse in the drivers fuse box that comes on with the key. It's a rather easy installation and if you chose to have it done professionally should cost about $50 for labor.

Does a 2004 Pontiac Montana's radio have an amplifier? If it does, where would it be???


Unless the face of the stereo says MONSOON there is no separate amplifier. On a Non-Monsoon Delco system all four amplifiers are built into the stereo, Left front, Right front, Left rear, and Right rear. Monsoon systems do have a separate amplifier which basically boosts the output of the four regular amps in the radio. I can't imagine all four of those amplifier output chips going out at the exact same time. I would pull the stereo and check if all plugs are seated properly. If those were all securely plugged in I would (myself) inspect the inside of the unit for the cause of failure. For example all four amp chips pull power from a common point and if one chip had a severe enough short in it, this may have caused the power feed trace on a circuit board to overload (too much current going through it) and created an open which killed power to all four of them. Any good electronics repair shop worth their salt should be able to repair it if you can locate one willing to try. It may only need a circuit board trace repair and one amp chip replaced.

I bought a used 2003 Jetta for my daughter with only 12,000 miles on it. The Monsoon radio suddenly stopped working. The display shows FM 88.1 (the radio staion) but there is no sound and the radio is...


I have come to find out that in the 90's auto makers started installing factory amplifiers in their cars so they could use low wattage stereos in the dash. It's usually a blue wire off the stereo that runs the amp, maybe it couldve become disconnected? I also know that even if you put in an after market stereo, this wire must be hooked up or you'll get no sound from the speakers. hope this helps.

The stock radio? Or is it something someone put in there?
I would pull the radio out and check to make sure the harness is fully engaged in the back of the radio.
