Hi, here is a simple test. Turn on your radio next turn the balance to one side, see if you notice a better full sound. Turn the balance back to center, if your sound has a hollow sound, your speakers are out of phase. Have your installer check that. Hope that helps.

Radio sound low and squeeky, works good in summertime


The volume control on your radio is called a potentiometer, which may be going bad. It works better when its warm because materials expand as they warm up and make tighter contact with each other.

It is also a possible a bad wiring connection exists. Poor contact will cause static, poor audio quality and intermittent output.

Your radio will have plug type connector(s) Your speakers will most likely each have two wires with single female spade connectors of different widths (keeps the polarity correct) the wire with the stripe (of whatever color) will be connected to the negative (-) speaker terminal.

So you need to check all the connections, one is making poor contact.
If both speakers (assuming you have two) sound good or bad... then start with the plug connectors for the radio and any independent black ground wire coming out of the radio.

If one speakers sounds okay check the connections on the other one. You check the connections by carefully pulling the speaker wire off of the speaker and then carefully pushing it back on making sure it feels tight and secure.

PS: If you pull the fuse for the radio, the radio will have no power and will not work. The radio coming on proves the fuse is good.

PSS: Your owners manual should provide lots of information on your sound system components.

1995 camaro z28 audio problems


Hi Jamie, Here's an old trick which you may find useful. Take a run down flashlight cell and confirm the wiring to the speakers by holding the earthing line of the speaker cable to the negative and flash the positive side with the feed to the speaker one at a time. With each swipe you will hear a thump from each speaker as you connect and disconnect. In that way you can confirm the cables are the ones you are connecting. Color coding is not always the same. Use a voltage test meter to confirm the constant power and ignition power and don't forget to earth the set once all other connections have been made, Withour an earth it won't work, but you know that anyway. Regards John

I dont kno the wiring colors for my 2000 taurus radio


All you need to do is get the power, ground, and antenna hooked up then start with two colors matching, example: one purple and one black with purple line hook those up to a matching speaker wire then turn stereo on and go to balance setting choose back left if speaker does not sound then go back right and if speaker does not sound then try front speaker right and then left once you find correct speaker move on to next two matching remember to. Mark wires FL or fr or bl or back right. Good luck

Installed stereo in 91 civic and only right side Speakers work


test the plugs at each individual speaker on the car with the ignition on.if you have a curren to every speaker check the speakers.
do this by putting 9v battery with leads from it to the speaker and seeing if it moves.
no movement means broken speaker wires.change the speakers.
if you dont have a current to some speakers.then trace the wire and find the to the back of the head and check that its getting a power fead.
Its annoying to do but the only way to truely solve the problem
Hope i help

I have a 07 GMC Seiarra Classic. The radio has some lights that come on or go off intermittently and the sound comes of and on on some of the speakers. I dont think it is a problem with the speakers...


I have the same problem. Seems when it is dry outside, the radio works pretty good but when the humidity is up, speakers dont work and sounds like treble in the other speakers.
I am to the point as to put a aftermaket radio in the truck.

Installing an aftermarket stereo in 1996 explorer...sound issues.


You may have a factory amplifier in the rear of the explorer in the right cargo panel. You need to supply power to it by connecting the amp power on (Blue/White I think) in the dash to a power source (such as red on your stereo harness) so it comes on with the key. If you do have the amplifier, that's why you have no sound.
