I have a sony xplod cdx-gt520. I just put in new speakers, and the radio works fine but when I plug in ti aux I get no sound. The display shows there is musix playing but no sound...

double check that you have the cables plugged into the "AUX IN", and that the "AUX OUT" is going to the amp. or just not connected if you have no amp. If that is correct, then try a different AUX cable, you may have a broken ground in the one you have.

Trying to find out what leads i need to use to wire a sony cdx gt210 stereo into my daughters 93 corsa sxi

i would strongly suggest not to hook it up that way just go to your local wallmart in the sterio section and get a sterio harness hook up kit it says on back of pack if it will work for your car and they will have what you need and that just plugs right in to the factory harness and will save you a huge head ack they are 12 to 15 bucks totally worth every penny then you wont stand a chance of shorting your wiring out good luck i hope this helps you

I have downloaded some mp3 (speech) files onto disc. They play back on my computer but will not play back on my new sony disc player (plays other mp3 files) in my car. What am I doing wrong ? The manual...

The programme u use should finalize them. Its like having shoe laces but not tying them up. In the settings of the programme you should have an option of automatic fianalize. make sure its checked.

My face plate was stolen out of my truck. Thr operateing instructions say cdx-gt200 and cdx-gt20w. How do i determine the proper model without the face plate and can I order a replacement?

remove the stereo from your truck. underneath the head unit itself WILL have a model number along with serial number, wiring instructions, etc............. but be warned that Sony WILL charge top dollar for the faceplate, which in turn will have them sayin somethin like "We recommend buying a new unit as the faceplate will cost nearly the same price as a new unit". In saying that, ALL Sony car stereo wiring looms fit each other, so no need for reinstalling the wires. so if u can get a cheap one without loom, then you'll be fine

Poor cound quality

does the XM use a radio station for recieving the sound or is it wired in to the vehicle. if you have to set a radio station so you can use the XM then what you can do it set the station to some other channel. it maybe to close to a real radio station or the frequency it to weak and you'll need a stronger signal
