Sony car cd player help!

Ive hooked up several cd players in cars but this is just strange. Its looks like ive got everything wired correctly, the only things i didnt wire are the illumination which my deck doesnt have, remote amp , and power antenna which my car doesnt have and i have no power antenna or amplifier. I hooked it up and it worked for about 5 minutes shut off and i havent been able to even get it to turn on anymore. Ive checked my car fuses and cd player fuse which are all fine. WTF?

A couple of things to think about. If the radio is new, then the speakers may be bad. If the radio is not new and purchased from someone else, the radio may be bad. You are making sure the volume is turned up right? You did use a harness when hooking the radio up right? That is something I strongly recommend.

Do you have an amp and subwoofer hooked up to the cd player as well ?

Alot of times if your battery is old it won't hold a good charge or possibly the alternator is not able to keep up with the power demand of your car. Some aftermarket cd players can draw alot of power, and if you have an amp and subwoofer, gps, cell chargers etc. hooked up it will only drain power quicker. Which Ive seen make headlights dim and flicker on my friends cars as well as customers cars due to these same issues.

To see if either of these are a possible match, take your car to an autozone and ask them to test your battery and alternator which they will do for free. They will be able to tell you if either of them are faulty.

Let me know if that help's, feel free to comment back with any additional information or question's and I will be happy to assist you further.

If the Sony front end unit (stereo) has RCA jacks (Left and Right) in the back it's an input to the Xplode amp. If that's right then the Subwoofer putputs should plug or wire into the Xplode amp. I haven't hooked these up for some time but try a search on Youtube with the units you describe I'm more than 90% sure that there are videos there.

No sound to the subs

Possible solution: Check to make sure your ground connection is connected to metal that is NOT covered in paint. This is not a solid connection and can ruin your amp over time. Simply scrap away the paint and re-connect. This was a problem i ran into recently.

No sub when listening to a cd

you're using the wrong remote output wire. You have it hooked to the power ANTenna wire (blue) which turns off when not using the tuner. You need to use the REM OUT wire (blue w/ white stripe).
