SOURCE: Factory Amp

I assume you used the correct Metra plug (70-1878) to install the radio. Ensure the blue and white wire on the Metra is attached to the blue and white wire (or solid blue) on the Sony. This will provide + turn on voltage to the factory amp.
The other good possibility is that the Metra harness has a black and a black and white set of wires both must be ground.
Lastly the Metra harness does not provide these( -) grounds, they are supplied by the braided strap . or the single wire that was attached to the back of the Jeep radio.

SOURCE: alpine stereo car deck installed in place of factory Bose with

What you have been told is correct, these proprietary systems are great for the manufacturer, but when they start to have issues (and they will) they leave you 2 options: pay through the nose to stay original or replace the amps with new ones....the upside of this is aftermarket amps are soooo mugh better than stock that it is lauhgable.

It started when a guy tried to hook up my radio so what about factory amp


Still need to know what the problem here is. To address the amp issue is easy. Most factory installs use only the amp that is built into the radio deck and do not have an external amp. If you do have an amp...which would be a higher end factory install then you are using your deck as the preamp and then going to the amp. You need to find that amp for the hook up.

Trying to set up just the amp & tapedeck of the Sony TA-AX335 integrated stereo system, but can't get the ribbon power cord to work.


Does the deck light-up at all, or is it completely dead? I've found that in aging tape decks, the belts will deteriorate, and change into tar. I've repaired several of the TA series Sony systems, and that's usually the case. If the deck is just 'dead,' I would recommend retrofitting standard RCA jacks on the back of the amplifier. The pins on the ribbon cable are clearly marked on the PC board inside the amp. Then, you could use any deck you want, or even a CD recorder. Hope this helps. :)

Does the 1998 TOWN AND COUNTRY have a factory amp


good morning and welcome to fixya
Yes there is a pre-amp that powers your system, it is actually bolted onto the back of the deck ( radio) . If you pull the radio out of the dash and look on the rear of it there will be a shiny silver block with heat sinks in it that is the amp. you can remove and re-install and new one if you need. Just make sure that you re-apply die electric silicone between the mounting surfaces. If you remove the amp from the back then the radio will probably not function at all. They are hard wired into radio itself. You must solder the new terminals back into the board if you change the amp. hope this helps, let me know if you need any other assistence. thank you for using fixya and dont forget to rate



please rate this solution??

First we need to eliminate some possible install errors,
1.) is the deck turning on.... if not check to be sure power wires are hooked up correctly ,..... if deck is turning on and speaker wires are hooked up properly, this problem is usually caused by not hooking up the power wire to the factory amp, I'm not sure what color the wire is as they are different with many types of cars, as soon as you locate the wire hook that wire to your ignition wire to your raido usually the red wire coming out of the back of the deck.... when you are finished you should have your ignition power wire feeding power to the radio and the factory amp

No audio from cd player


What kind of car did you install this in? Did it have a factory radio in it? If I had to take a guess I would think that there is a factory amp that you may have hooked the blue wire from the alpine deck to. If this is the case when you switch to CD the alpine deck turns off the power to the power antenna lead(blue wire) and thus your factory amp. If this is the case hook the factory amp turn on to the blue and white wire and you should be good to go. The same goes if your have an aftermarket amp driving your speakers.
