Hi there,

Well there's lots of possible reasons. The FM receiver portion of the radio is separate from the AM Band receiver, pre-amp, and amplifier sections of the radio. The FM receiver may have simply failed, as well as the CD player portion of the radio. Your car FM needs repair, you need a multimeter to check it or take it to a repair person. Please post further comments for further help or information......

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Lost sound on 2005 impala. radio works. seems like amp problem.


Do you have base or up;level system ?

Table 1: Radio Features
Table 2: Cassette Features
Table 3: Compact Disc Features
Table 4: XM Advisory Messages
The radio receives power from the RADIO fuse in the junction block-right I/P. Ground is provided via G201 and G202. The radio is enabled/disabled by class 2 messages from the body control module (BCM). The radio routes audio signals from the digital radio receiver or the vehicle communication interface module (VCIM) to the speakers and/or amplifier when directed by class 2 messages.
The Entertainment System on this vehicle is configured with an AM/FM stereo radio with the radio data system (RDS) and either a cassette player or a CD player or both. CD and cassette. The uplevel system provides the customer with extended range speakers and an audio amplifier. Satellite digital radio (U2K) is available with uplevel systems.
The following list shows the radios available for this vehicle:
• Radio (ULO) - AM/FM Stereo, Cassette with RDS
• Radio (UNO) - AM/FM Stereo, CD and RDS
• Radio (UPO) - AM/FM Stereo, Cassette with CD and RDS .The complexity of the radio systems on these vehicle is mind blowing .

Your best bet take it to a GM dealer , has features you are unawear of .
DTC B1025, B1035, B1045, or B1055
When the radio is powered up, the radio supplies low level audio signals to the speakers. If the vehicle is equipped with an audio amplifier, the amplifier will boost the signal sent to the speakers.
DTC B1025 Audio Output Circuit
Install a scan tool.
Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
With the scan tool, monitor the DTC Information for DTC B1025.
Does the scan tool indicate that DTC B1025 is current?

My BOTH rear speakers are very distorted and garbled. This is a Bose system in a Cadillac Touring Coupe. If I adjust the balance the rest of the system works perfect.


It would appear based on your comments that the amplifier(s) responsible for the rear speakers may have been overdriven and the outputs are toast. Hence the highly distorted output on the speakers.

Margaret, this is free public forum , demands don't play here (free)
and you double posted. why do that.? if you wish to elaborate
try posting below 1st post, as an add.
and for better help? why not post to a BMW forum. (faster)
and no car year, posted or car options listed.

Radio year, model and Car Cell phone options.

no matter.......
the first check on all electronics, is the fuse
most radios have 3 power sources, (to make all features work)
and fuses are on all 3.
have you tried all sources, AM/FM CD, MP3 USB (if opted) .
are all modes dead?
the next check is to try all buttons on the radio. ?
is there a mute button? if car has 4 speaker try the fader lever.
front to rear. left to right , still dead.?
cycle modes. radio, cassette, CD 6 pack , what ever, but do cycle them all as older cars the mode switch can stick.

The RDS is radio station text messages. for song titles.
including time, station identification and programme information.
if this part really works, the RDS part this means the radio is working, but the power amp is dead or muted.
try balance and fader.
many radios (1000s) have fuses in the radio for the speaker amp
that can blow. (shorted speaker wires a prime reason)
or some have in line fuse. and others are in the cars fuse box
which varies by maker or model year.

ok , im looking at the stock radio on level C stock 1991 radio
and even back when (stock to me) the is RADIO muting
so if your car has Cell phone muting bingo that.
and a fuse at rear of radio, (unstated purpose)
guessing,id say there is lamp that glows, CELL mute?


conclusion, no car year stated, or year radio of not origional.

How do you auto preset radio stations?


Hello
[1] Press RADIO BAND.AUTO PRESET until the band you want appears on the display [direct power ON]. Each time you press the button the indication changes as follows. "FM" => "AM"
[2] Hold down TUNE+ or --ve until the frequency digits begin to change in the display.
The player automatically scans the radio frequencies and stops when it finda a clear station. If you can't tune in a station, press the button repeatedly to change the frequency step by step.
If FM band is noisy, press the MODE repeteadly until "MONO" appears in the display and the radio will play it monatural. If FM radio signal at your area is very weak, this type of noise may occur. OK.

How do I enter code on my 1999 BMW radio cassette? When you first turn it on there is a small 1 in the top of the screen - you enter the first code number and somehow or other I got it to accept that and...


Hi Terry,
Use the radio station/cd preset selector buttons. The one on top furthest left is the first digit. Keep the button pressed or press multiple times until the correct number shows in the read out, then go to the next button and do likewise. Use the same technique through the four buttons and then press the FM button.

1983 Cadillac Sedan deVille radio cassette player problem. The cassette player gets stuck in forward position and makes a clicking sound but no music. The tape does not turn. Belt seems to be fine. It will...


If the belt is fine then the pinch roller must work to pull the tape with the capstan working.
so please open set and get glimpse to see if the pinch roller is engaging. If not the loading mechanism is not working. you will need to see if the reel drive is also working. So unless the mechansim is checked there is no question of the sound coming out.
So see that the loading engages the pinch roller to pull tape and the reel drive to gather the winding, if not reset loadding mechanism .
However if the tape moves and there is no sound then the head preamp, the tone amp or the output amp can be faulty. You can use a signal test to confirm the section.
credit if this helps
