After all connections are completed correctly - Press the RESET button. The RESET button on the housing must be activated with either a ballpoint pen or similar pointed object. The RESET button is to be activated for the following reasons: • Initial installation of the unit after all wiring is completed. • Some the function buttons do not operate. • Error symbol appears on the display.

on your amp under the back seat their are 2 plugs the one on the left which is the smaller of the 2 there is a Tan wire w/Orange stripe on it hook the remote wire from stereo plug which will be blue w/white stripe to that wire so it will power-up your amp...Bottom line, no amp = no sound,unless you figure what wires are the speaker wires and hook directly to your stereo plug............Its an easy fix
The thing is, whoever hooked up the stereo would know for sure where the connected into in order to get power to the stereo. If they went off somewhere ealse other than what the factory made to be the power for the stereo it would make sense. In the accord for your year the power to the stereo and the cigarette lighter is the same fuse if it was hooked to the same wiring that came with the vehicle. They may have by accident disconnected the lighter and it's just not hooked up at all. You can check the fuse for the cigarette lighter if you would like. that fuse is in the fuse panel located in the engine compartment and will be in the number 18 position and sould be a 15 amp fuse ( see diagram of the layout of fuses below). If that fuse is bad and corrects the problem then they hooked up to another power source when they hooked up the stereo. I hope this helps you and good luck.
If you bought a wiring adapter kit for the aftermarket stereo, the unit should hook up directly to the stock bose system. Note: If there is sound coming from the speakers after installation, the amp IS hooked up...the speaker wiring is routed to the factory amplifier, not the stereo itself, the stereo wiring is just signal leads to the amplifier. In some instances, you may have to connect the amp remote wire to the remote wire coming from the aftermarket stereo(blue wire). I hope this helps. Any other questions, just reply.
It sounds like you have the "Infinity System". The accessory/antenna wire has to be hooked up to the power wire for the factory installed amplifier (should be located under the passenger's seat). Locate the wire from the original harness and hook it to the amp wire. I hope that helps. Please rate my assistance and leave a testimonial.
ARE YOU AWARE THEY MAKE A VERY INEXPENSIVE ADAPTER HARNESS THAT HOOKS UP TO THE FACTORY HARNESS, NO WIRE CUTING,CAR AUDIO SHOP CAN GET THE ONE U NEED, ABOUT $12. HERE IS THE WIRING COLOR BREAKDOWN OF THE DASH HARNESS. 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier Car Stereo Radio Wiring Diagram

The antenna wire, witch should be yellow. is not supposed to be hooked up to 12 volts. It is only meant to be used as an on censer . If that wire is the reason your speakers are not working then the stereo is defective. That wire should have 12 volts coming out of it when the stereo is on. And hooking it to 12 volts could have damaged your stereo. I would look at the wire diagram again before doing anything else.
So anyway if you are not using the power antenna wire cap it off and leave it alone. you do not need it. Check all of your connections again and follow the wire diagram. Good luck.
IS THERE AN AMP? ARE YOU SURE YOU HAVE DECK/ AMP HOOKED UP TO A CONSTANT "KEY ON" POWER SOURCE? I WOULD GET A TEST LIGHT(REAL CHEAP AT WALMART, OR AUTOPARTS STORES) AND SEE IF MAIN WIRE IS NOT A TIMED KEY ON CIRCUT.... ALSO IF AMP IS BEING USED MAKE SURE ITS HOOKED TO REMOTE ON WIRE(USUALLY BLUE WIRE) AND NOT POWER ANTENNA LEAD OR SOME OTHER TEMP/TIMED POWER LEAD. GOOD LUCK
