Hogar - No sound from Boss Radio after initial installation test.


If you are hooked up to the factory wiring harness i would think there may be a factory amplifier that is not getting power or is bad.

Test the stereo by hooking a speaker up to the speaker out wires from head unit. if it has sound try to find out if there is a factory amplifier.

Good Luck

I have a 1996 jetta 1.8 with a factory alarm and i put in a new radio when i put battery back on after radio was installed the alarm kept on going off and i cant disarm it with remote button or when i try...


You alarm system monitor the radio. You basically disabled the vehicle when you removed the radio. You will need the original radio with the radio code and install it back. Your driver door lock is what turns it off and what turns it on. You have a 1996 Jetta find a electrical auto repair who is willing to do this (I do this all the time) Disable the alarm first get rid of the horn there is only on on the outer drivers side the alarm horn will have to be cut. From there acces the fuse box under the driver dash find the starter relay and bypass it. There your done no alarm and you can put any radio on .

Hi, the plain orange wire is the power wire. The constant wire is only for maintaining the station presets--it does not power the unit on. The other orange wires are for speakers. See the full color code below, and let me know if you have any more questions.

What kind of wire do I need to install Infinity reference series 605cs with a JL Audio 10" sub and a Alpine Flex 2 amp? Can I use my factory head unit?


You can use the factory speaker wiring for the Infinity speakers you should purchase a amp kit which will give you everything to install the amp. See site below

Well that all depends on the current audio system you have now is it just a basic or a premium factory system with a factory amp. Honestly you would get a better and cleaner sound if you change the factory head unit to a after market one which has preamp feeds and the higher the preout volt the better. Just make sure it is compatible with the amp volts input (Example 4v to 250mv) If you use the factory headunit you would have to by a high to preout adapter it connects to the exsiting radios speaker leads, but like I said before change the head unit you won't be sorry. Do not forget if you change the radio you need a radio install kit and the wiring harrness which converts the two radio plugs so you don't cut them so down the road you can remove the after market radio and just replug the factory right back in.

Were do i plug in the RCA cables from the amp to a factory radio? do i need any sort of adapters if my stereo dose not have inn or outputs? and where do i hook up the remote from the amp?


Most factory radios do not have RCA outs, but most will have a remote wire. Usually used for a power antenna option. Your remote wire from the amp could be hooked to the power antenna wire on the factory radio and it would work great for turning on the amp. As for the RCA inputs on your amp, you will not be able to use them without RCA outs on your factory deck. Although most amps offer a high level input alternative and will use the standard speaker level out on your factory deck. This means the rear channel speaker wires from your factory deck will be used to feed the signal to the amp. You will have to check the instructions and manufactorer recomendations for the amp you are trying to hook up. Have fun and good luck!

Radio comes on but i cant hear any music


You may be connecting this stereo into an amplified system. If the original factory stereo worked with the factory amplifier, your stereo is not turning the amplifier on. If you purchased the aftermarket wire harness that mates to the factory stereo connector, hook up the "Amplifier Trigger" wire, this wire is usually blue.
