Make sure your yellow wire is going to a constant power source. One that is still hot after the key is turned off.

When playing cds in my sony cdxgt500 the sounds come throught the door and rear speakers fine, but not through the subs. everything works as it should while playing the radio.


Hello.... it sounds like you have the remote wire for the amplifier hooked to the solid blue wire behind the radio. You need to hook to the blue/white wire behind the radio. What happens is that the solid blue wire turns on the power antenna when you are listening to the radio and it turns off (lets the antenna down) when you listen to a cd. There should be a blue/white wire that is the amplifier turn on wire that will stay on as long as the head unit is on. Hope this helped!

When I turn off my truck and the blue lights on, it turns off but when the radios on and I turn the truck off the radio does turn off unless I hit the off button! Help sony xplod cdx-gt640


do you mean the blue light on the power button? it sounds like your radio's switched power input (usually red) is hooked up to a 12 volt constant source.

Location of reset on unit


when you disconnect it from cables, it resets. But i believe that is not the problem. Check speaker cables. I think you have problem with internal power amps. They have thermal and current protection. look for short circuits on speakers or speaker cables.
