Hello Grower,

This problem could mean a few things :

* Factory Amp Turn On Wire is not connected to the solid blue turn on wire from the radio harness or the appropriate turn on wire on the factory harness.

* Speaker output channels from the radio are not good ( defective radio )

* Bad ground connection from the radio harness.

* Speaker wires are grounding out or touching each other

* Factory Amp fuse is blown, therefore no output to speakers.

* Blown Speaker or torn coil on the speaker connection tab.

I would have all that checked out and if u dont resolve it then write back to me.

Good Luck..

Are you sure that there are speakers currently installed in the vehicle? There may not be, I have seen vehicles that didn't come with factory radios not come with speakers either. If you do have speakers you may want to take the deck back to where you purchased it and show them the problem. If you purchased it online, then you may be stuck with what might actually be a dead unit.

Eclipse radios are set up so the first cd inserted in the cd is used to unlock the radio if power is ever disconnected or the radio is stolen. You are going to have to call eclipse and see if they will unlock the radio for you. If the radio has been reported stolen, chances are they will not help you. You should be able to contact them at their website. If you can get the radio out of the dash, there is a phone number for eclipse on the chassis also.

I have a 95 nissan maxima i am trying to replace stock radio(bose) w/a new cd player but once its hooked up im not hearing any sound? whats wrong with it?


Most Bose car stereos have an external amplifier. You will need to see if that is the case on your factory setup and remove the amplifier. Then hook the new headunit straight to the speakers.

I put an aftermarket cd player in and none of the door speakers work. they are all hooked up on the same factory amp. i have the 2001 lincoln ls v8 with the premium sound system.


the factory radio provides a single to the amplifier but a after market radio is not compatible with the stock radio and you will need a radio replacement interface this is what you need.

I just bought an Alpine CDE- 103BT. When i turn it on, the radio works well but when i try to put a cd on or usb flash drive....no sounds...Help me pls


you have the wrong remote wire hooked up on the radio. there is more likely a blue, and a blue/white on the radio wires. hook it up to the blue/white, or if that doesn't work try an accessory 12v wire from somewhere else

Wiring Apine SPS-600C speakers


hey there,i hope the project turns out great,
1) round up all materials needed such as door components and indash radio,install plug for aftermarket radio,get a radio install kit they are like 10-15 bucks ,and if ur doing a double din radio you will have to cut trim to fit and inside compartment behind radio,but if your doin stock 1 din you will be fine.
2) in order to get to radio in dash you must pull dash bezel off from around gauges and radio and the radio has push down release tabs on both sides of radio ...push these down and pull radio outwards.
3) use new wire plug harness and install radio using install kit so radio sits in it and slides back in with tabs.
4) door panels come off with (3)crews that are 7mm near door handle,bottom of door near speaker,and inside where the switch panel is.must pull up switch panel to get to screw others are visible.
5) take mirror cap off and lift upwards on panel the whole panel will come off make sure to unplug vanity light at bottom door and all switches.remove n set to side door ....remove speaker and unplug then install new speaker cut plug install new crimped wire connector caps and install speaker and do reverse to put door back on and this go's for the otherside as well.
6) if theres more to your system write back with any ?'s ok ill try to help as much as possible.

If you have not removed the radio, maybe the fatory fuse for the factory amp is out. But if you have been messing around with the radio maybe you forgot to plug in the speaker harness to the factory radio. This type of Factory Radio haves two Gray plugs on it . Remove the 3 10mm bolds and check it.

Jensen vm9411 has no sound from radio hookups put rca wires have sound


If the previous radio played all the speakers and the new one wont either:
1. You have not hooked the speakers up right.
2. All your speakers are blown.
3. There is a factory amp, you just don't know about it.
4. The radio has blown final outputs.
5. One or more speakers or speaker wires is seeing a ground (shorted out)

First check the radio, hook up a know good test speaker directly to the speaker outputs on the radio. If it works, then take a 9volt battery and try to pop the inside speakers with it. When you touch the + & - speaker wires to the battery + &- you should hear a pop at the speaker. If you do you don't have an amp. If you don't you might have an amp or the wire going to the speaker is dead or shorted out. It is unlikely that all four speakers would be bad or have bad wires. If none of them will pop you need to turn on the factory amp. Then they will play. If only one speaker wont pop then that is the bad speaker. If they all pop then you have a bad speaker or wire.

The volume or maybe the speakers in my 2002 hyundai sonata stopped working. Radio still comes on but no sound. What can I do.


if you happen to have a speaker available, try to test the stereo. plug in a speaker and see if it works. otherwise, i don't really like this method but, it does work... unlug your factory speaker and plug a 9v battery to the speaker, if you hear a little popping/wizzing sound, the speaker works and it's the head unit.
also, check to see if the radio has an amp. sometimes the radio will be operational, but the amp isn't and that is the problem. and the easy solution is to replace the radio with an after market of choice. factory radio's that are purchased seperately are rather expensive.
