    BOSS AUDIO SYSTEMS 815CA : Brand New Radio was installed by cartonics, but i just noticed that the cd player doesn't work. I tried to load a cd but it had no power and i don't hear any movement internally. Could it be a wiring problem? What should I check for? I have a 1997 ford expedition.

    Thanks for taking time out to answer me. The radio is new, i got it on The radio works great and the aux too but the cd player is dead. Are there any color wires that should be hooked up also to make the cd player work? Cartronics is the company that installs radios, alarms etc...

Not really it was a wiring issue nothing else would work, Either laser has gone wrong and is not reading disks Or the motor which spins disk when inserted is broke
Take it back to cartonics and let them look as you should be covered under there guarantee if its been bought from them and broken even when you didn't fit it they did also.

    Not really the stereo has a broken CD unit
    You could send it back and get it replaced

    You can remove it yourself with a radio remover key to insert into sides to slot it out
    then unplug the connectors cartonics did for you can get it replaced under warranty then
    you can refit your old one exactly how it was and will be working again.

There is nothing much you can do on your own. There is some internal psoblem It will need to be opened and cleaned up by a tech.
The laser assby and the rails it runs on need cleaning
Either a TV or stereo repair service could do it

    OK in that case you can simply call the manufacturer. If it is a manufacturing defect they will replace it for you.

What am i doin wrong with my boss radio? when i set a station when i shut the engine off i loss my settings

Sounds like your Memory +12V wire is not connected properly. If this wire does not have a constant source of power then you will lose all of your settings on your radio.

Things that may cause you to lose power through the Memory 12V wire:
  • Not hooked up properly to the battery
  • Bad battery
  • Bad ground
  • Loose wires

BOSS AUDIO SYSTEMS SE950 Car Audio Amplifier: I have a SE950 boss amp, hooked to 2 audiobahn 12"...

Sounds like you are over working this amp for sure.. Upgrading your power wire & battery might help, check your gain level on your amp to. This is not the volume for the amp. Its to get both amp and the cd player on the same page... And most of all if your subs are wired up to .5 ohm stable, see if your amp do the same... My answer to this ?? Upgrade your amp, Boss audio was never a good company to me, but that is my opinon. Audiobahn set up all the way..

Bypass parking brake wire

Boss Audio is the easiest in-dash DVD on the market to bypass; all you do is ground the ebrake wire. I recently installed 12 Boss Audio in-dash BV-7300's and did this to all of the decks problem solved. By the way I did this because they were in the back of limousines where the driver couldn't ever even see one of them while he was driving. I don't think there will be a problem, try it.
