Re: my car radio dont work
I am sure that the radio fuse was checked to see if power is actually going to the radio? The next thing to check is the multipin plug on the back of the radio. If it was removed sometimes the pins get bent when plugged back in. Make sure all pins are clean and straight. Try to disconnect wires that were changed to install the amp and put everything back to original and see if the radio works. The amp should have a direct connection to the battery with its on fuse correct? Depending on the amp if new or used may have internal problems and will have to be sent back to the manufacturer for repair. Hopefully when the wiring is put back to normal in the vehicle the radio should work, unless the amp load has damaged the output transistors to the original radio. Good luck.

If you only hooked up the power and ground the amp will not turn on. You must also hook up the remote wire. This either can come from your radio, your fuses, or your power wire itself. If you hook it up to your radio then it will turn on when the radio is turned on. If your radio doesn't have a remote wire to amp then you can read your owners manual and hook it up to the radio fuse and when the radio turns on the amp will turn on. An lastly you can run a wore from your power wire to your remote plug in. But if you do this the nano will constantly be on if it is hooked up to the battery.
CHECK THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER FOR POWER TO GAUGES TO SEE IF THEY WORK WHILE IGNITION IS IN THE ON POSITION.IF NO CHECK THE 40 AMP IGNITION FUSE.IF FUSE GOOD IGNITION SWITCH IS BAD OR HAS A LOOSE OR BROKEN WIRE.IF FUSE GOOD ALL GAUGES IS WORKING.I BE LOOKING AT STARTER AND STARTER SOLENOID.REMOVE THEM HAVE AUTO ZONE TEST STARTER.OR YOU CAN GET A REMOTE STARTER SWITCH AND SET OF BATTERY CABLES.HOOK BATTERY CABLES TO A BATTERY.WITH STARTER OUT OF CAR TAKE BATTERY CABLES HOOK NEGATIVE BATTERY TO STARTER BODY FOR GOOD GROUND.TAKE POSITIVE BATTERY CABLE HOOK TO STARTER POSITIVE TERMINAL WHERE POSITIVE BATTERY CABLE GOES.THEN HOOK THE REMOTE SWITCH RED WIRE TO STARTER POSITIVE TERMINAL AND THE OTHER REMOTE SWITCH WIRE TO THE S OR SWITCH TERMINAL ON STARTER SOLENOID.PRESS THE REMOTE SWITCH IS STARTER RUNS GOOD WITH NO FUNNY NOISES ITS GOOD IF STARTER DONT RUN THE STARTER SOLENOID OR STARTER IS BAD. THE PROBLEMS IN YOUR CAR COULD BE A BAD KEY TRY ANOTHER KEY YOUR CAR HAS THE THEFT DETERRENT MODULE SYSTEM BEST TO HAVE CAR SCAN TO CHECK THE THEFT SECURITY MODULE AND THE TRANSMISSION NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH IF ITS BAD STARTER WONT WORK.ALSO CHECK THE THEFT DETERRENT MODULE RELAY. BEFORE REMOVING BATTERY CABLES TURN OFF RADIO SO YOU WONT LOSE YOUR RADIO PLAYING CODE.
as far as the remote wire a keyed power wire from under dash can be used its the same thing.if the remote wire is working it wont turn on your amp so are you sure thats not why your rcas dont work or have u hooked power to the remote on the amp.
if you are not hearing the pump turn on there's a good chance that its the fuel pump most gm's have a faulty wiring on the fuel pump harness id check the relay and wiring if theirs power to the pump but not crank that would be it id get a gm pump not a carter better to use oem
You could be hooking up the main power to a full time hot rather than the radio circuit. Use a test light to find the switchable hot and hook up your power wire to it, then then memory for the radio goes to the full time hot.
you have the amp remote wire hooked to the power antenna lead instead of the amp wire on the deck otherwise just hook it to a switched +12 volt source. You sure you got a DVD changer instead of just a cd changer
Check your rca cables they might be loose or not connected to the amp or the radio. Sometimes those rca cable outlets get worn out by being bumped, moved, hooking up and pulling out connectors. Plug in your rca cords and wiggle them on the amp while radio is on and see if the music cuts in and out
okay u will have to troubleshoo the amp.....dose the amp light up?...when u have the radio on? also check your sub wires.going to the amp....make sure the rca'sare hooked up to the radio rear out puts are the radio sub out puts...and then test your amp gain adjustment...let me know if that work's
The yellow wire goes to + (hot) 12 volt constant, red wire goes to ignition switch, Hook up your amp together with the red wire
(switched) and the amp will come on with the ignition switch.
Blue and white wire is for the power antenna.
