Sound from drivers door speaker in my truck.

Ok i use to be able to crank the radio in my truck and the next state over heard it. and that was on factory speakers and i did get a different audio cd player 4 my truck. well one day the drivers side just started to crackle, so i figured i blew a speaker, put new speaker in, then i had NO sound, so out came the cd/radio player. went to wallmart, ya it was close, i wanted a mp3 player so i can get ride of 100 cds in my truck, and i got a cheap one, hooked it up,its a VRCD400-SDU plays am/fm receiver cd/mp3/wma player with USB port, Aux In & detachable face and it came with a remote, so well now i can talk loader than my sterio is playing, and and and the drivers side door speaker sounds like its on 2 and the passengers side is definatly louder, so what the frik happend i got a different speaker for door, only to discover it wasnt blown, i got a new radio whis is not load, at all, and my drivers side sounds like no sound, unless certain songs play that go from left to right. and i also dont have sound in the back, just crakling once in a while, and so we tore apart the door and took the sterio out and rewired it in and checked the wires what we could that wasnt bundled or behind the metal that u cant get at. im just pist i had awsume sound now i got granmas sound in there. i dont have alot of money to spend on equipment, something is just not right, and its driving me crazy. can i get a booster to make the sound at least a little louder, im serious u can yell loader than the sterio, before u couldnt hear anything. should i cut the back speakers off, i know that would put more sound towards the front, i am puzzled. i dont have any sub woofers or equalizer thingy hooked up to this. just the player and my speakers. thanks Creedy

Check your speaker wire, sounds like the insulation is cut somewhere and thewire is grounding out. that is why the crackling and low sound. your speaker wire is grounding out or wire is broken, start at the speaker and follow wire to find the break

My jvc kd-g820 will not produce any sound and not accept cd


try to find the reset a little indent on the face or hole when you remove the face and push in for 2 to 3 secs with a pen or paper clip. Then try your cd again. Still dont work check to see if you have another cd jammed inside and your trying to put two cds at once.

Ok for your no sound problem. a bad speaker, short speaker (one 1 speaker shorts out all will not work cause the radio is in a protective mode), factory amp needs to be turned on, bose system or amplified system in car needs to be rewired to bypass factory amp), buy special car harness to make factory amp compatible with aftermarket radio, late ford models the back speakers are crisscrossed.

Next time please give car info and type of system you got in it so I could narrow down the possible problems a little bit easier.

No sound from the radio to door speakers in my car whats wrong???


I too am having this problem. First I thought it was the amp, so I ditched the amp (was old anyways) and just directly hooked up to the speakers from the deck. It worked, then the problem came back. DualAV/Namsung customer service on these issues needs some help.

Confirm with a voltmeter on the +12 and an ohmmeter for speaker continuity.

Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.

I trickle charged a new scosche 500k micro farad capacitor and when i hooked it to my trucks system it threw my amps into protection. so i replced both subs and got rid of cap.now the cd reciever plays but...


do the rca's work and does the speakers work on the radio. if the rca's don't work the rca's do have a fuse inside right next to the rca's on the circuit board. it is a small black rectangle soldered on both sides and has the letter f on it. if no sound comes from the speakers on the doors the output on the radio is probably damaged. the item number of the part is tda 7856

It is flashing the word protect on the screen


You have a shorted speaker wire or a blown speaker. The unit is protecting itself from damage. Did you install it? if so, pull the deck and check your connections. If they all seem fine, disconnect one speaker at a time, and turn on the radio. Make sure the radio speaker wires are taped so they don't short and cause more damage. Test each speaker wire until you find which one is causing the problem. Now re-connect all the other speakers and test. Next, disconnect the speaker wire right at the speaker that's giving you a problem, tape it off, then re connect it to the receiver. now test again. If all is ok, you have a bad speaker, if not run a test wire from the radio to the possible bad speaker and test again. If the speaker plays, you know what the problem is, replace the bad wire. Most often it's a door speaker wire or a wire got pinched during installation and took a while to short. Hope this helps

New Radio too powerful for 15 Watt speakers?


Hello mike_mccuske,

The OEM speakers will still work OK with your new Pioneer. Just don't turn it up too loud. Of course you'll get improved sound if you replace the speakers. Your Pioneer's RMS power is 14 watts, and the peak (maximum) power is 50 watts. The door speakers in a 2000 Honda Civic are 6.5" and you can get a set of Pioneer speakers, the TS-G1642R's, from Crutchfield for less than $50. Their RMS power range is 2-30 watts and they can handle a peak power of up to 180 watts.

Hope this helps.

Very low sound out of left front speaker, other speakers work fine


Have you tried another speaker? If your left front speaker is in the door as in most cars, it gets banged around a lot. The driver's door gets the most use. This sometimes results in mechanical problems with the speaker, and can cause low sound or distortion. Take the speaker cover off (it may be necessary to remove the door panel in a factory installation), disconnect the speaker and hook another in its place. If the volume is back to normal you know it's the speaker. If not, check the radio and speaker wiring. If the radio itself is at fault because the amplifier is bad, it can be repaired at a service shop. The repair charges might be close to replacement cost these days, so you might consider a new radio if the estimate is high.

No Sound


There should be a fuse on the back of the radio. It needs to be checked.
