Radio has power but the speakers won't work

I'm trying to install a radio in a 1974 Ford LTD, the old wires have been cut so didn't try to figure that mess out, so instead as the manual said I ran a wire off the battery and one from the radio fuse for power then grounded the radio. This has the lights coming on and the CD player working but there is no sound to the speakers. New speakers are being used and new speaker wire was run. Have taken the radio out and tried it in another vehicle and the speakers work, have also tried another radio in this car and came up with the same thing, no sound. What have I done wrong or need to change to get sound in my car?

SOURCE: my ford ka cd player only plays out of one speaker

When I first got my Ka, the wiring between the car and the door was snapped. If you open the door there is a rubber tubing, if u assume 2 wires are snapped and try 2 pull them together through the rubber tubing you should hear a crackle if thats the fault. Even if you do not, it will almost certainly be this. To fix it, you need 2 use a stanley knife 2 cut open the rubber tubing then connect the to snapped wires together. I did this by getting a small amount of speaker cable and adding it 2 both ends, using plenty of insulation tape. This is the most common fault for speaker problems in the Ka.

Hope this Helps

SOURCE: CD stuck in CD Player - 1998 Mazda Protege

It might be a Bose system. I usually remove stuck CD's by grasping the edge with a pair of tweezers and pulling slowly, there will be some resistance. Try to reset first by removing the fuse for about 30 seconds and after it powers up again (don't turn it on yet) push the eject button.

SOURCE: how to reset radio cd hyundai HM-5064 using provided password

Hey there, lucky for you that you were able to obtain your passcode, unlike some of us.
To enter the code you hit the number 1 on your stereo w times, the number 2 x times, the number 3 y times, and the number 4 z times, then hit 5 once. Based on your code, wxyz. Ie if your code is 4316, hit 1 on the stereo 4 times then 2 3 times, 3 once, 4 six times, then hit 5.

Lexus nakamichi 12 cd player repair


follow this steps and fix it. God bless you

blem: I get noise on my car audio system that disappears when I turn the car off.
Possible Cause

Suggested Solution
Alternator or ignition noise is being picked up through the power connection. Install a 12-volt noise filter between the power tap and the power input on your car audio. Back to the Troubleshooting Index Problem: The sound distorts at high volume when I play the radio in my car audio system.
Possible Cause

Suggested Solution
The radio wattage is too low to drive the speakers. Use a car amplifier to increase the radio's power. Replace the speakers with ones which match the radio's output. Back to the Troubleshooting Index Problem: My car radio only get one station.
Possible Cause

Suggested Solution
There is a problem with the wiring. Check the antenna circuit and rewire if necessary. There is a problem with the antenna. Check the antenna and replace if necessary. There is a problem with the radio. If you received more than one station with your previous system and you have already checked the wiring and the antenna, either replace the radio or send it to a service center. Back to the Troubleshooting Index Problem: My car radio keep running hot and blowing fuses.
Possible Cause

Suggested Solution
The wires to different speakers have been combined rather than run separately. Make sure that each of the speakers has 2 wires run to it. Combining speaker wires will cause this problem. Back to the Troubleshooting Index Problem: I lose my station memories in my car radio when I turn off the vehicle.
Possible Cause

Suggested Solution
The tuner memory wire may not be connected properly. Connect the yellow wire to your vehicle battery's positive (+) terminal or to a fuse that provides a continuous source of 12 volts. This connection provides continuous power for the clock and tuner memory when the ignition is turned off. Back to the Troubleshooting Index Problem: The amplifier stays on for a few minutes, then shuts off, then comes back on, then shuts off again.
Possible Cause

Suggested Solution
It is overheating due to power issues. Check your power ratings to be sure they match the amplifier's specifications. There is a problem with the amplifier. If the power ratings are correct, the amplifier needs to be sent to a service center. Back to the Troubleshooting Index Problem: When using two amplifiers, I lose the right channel on one amp.
Possible Cause

Suggested Solution
There is a problem in the sound system or wiring. Try swapping amplifiers or bypassing that amp. If the problem persists on the right channel on both amps, check the wiring and sound system. There is a problem with the amplifier. Replace the amplifier that displays the problem or send it to a service center .

I'm trying to install a pioneer DEH-64BT radio in


Check the ariel fuse with the power supply (+Ve) wire for open. If it found OK, measure the main voltage that come to that fuse carrier. You must have knoledge to use a multimeter. If fuse is found blown up, do understand that, there is some wiring mistake, caused a short circuit.
Chekc the wirings once again and replace the fuse only after that.

I have a JVC CH-X1100 CD changer in my truck. The sound is only coming out clearly on the driver side speakers....the passenger side speakers sound very low and distorted.


It is only a loose or broken wire to the left speakers. Try at the speaker itself first, and then at the radio. If both of these connections are tight, then check back along the wiring and check that the wiring TO THE RADIO LEFT SPEAKER is OK. If OK, you may have a break in the wire from the radio to the speaker.. It could even be an internal break that is hard to see. The easiest way would be to replace that wire.

Their should be a bunch of other wires with light colors that are your speakers. If this info don't match. Buy a power tester and ground it and test each wire.
