No Sound I recently purchased this unit used and wired it to my Dodge Ram pickup. I took good care to make sure the wiring was correct. When I turned the truck's ignition on, I was able to power up the unit just fine, but I get no sound at all to my speakers. I have used a volt meter to check the connections from the wiring harness to the stereo and those are fine. There is no sound from a CD or from the tuner. Though the CD timer counts as it plays and the tuner shows the "Stereo" icon when I tune it. Every function on the unit seems to work properly, I just have no sound. I plugged my old factory stereo back in to test the speakers and they are fine. I'm at a loss where to go next. Afraid there is a problem with the internal amp or something. Any ideas?

Most ram trucks came with a infinity system. the amps are in the front doors, mounted to the 6x9 speakers. and they power the tweeters in the columms, and also rear speakers if you have them. I had to replace the entire system.

Does your Dodge have a factory amplifier? It definitely sounds like it. Try hooking up one of the speaker wires to an external sound amplifier or something like that and see if you get sound. If you don't, then you have a factory amp. You can also try touching the speaker wires with a 9volt battery and listening for a popping sound. If you don't want to test, contact www.crutchfield.com and ask if your truck has an external amplifier. They can help you find a bypass wiring harness so that you don't have to deal with it.

2003 dodge ram lights work on trailer but brake lights

try http://www.etrailer.com/faq-wiring.aspx. They have very good concise information that might help. Check wiring at each light. You can use the emergency flashers and a 12 volt test light to do this.
Make sure each light is grounded well. A loose ground will cause all sorts of problems. Hope this helps. Mike

1989 Dodge Ram D50, no spark. coil may be miswired.

Check the resistance on the coil. the (+) (-) side should be about 10 Ohms resistance and the part that goes out of the coil should be 1-2 ohms resistance. Get yourself an ohmmeter and check it. best way to check is to figure out what wire runs from the computer to the coil and follow the wiring all the way to the coil making sure theres no rips or shorts. If there isnt, then I would splice into the two wires and run two new wires over to the coil. If it still doesnt have spark then its a faulty computer and should be replaced. Good luck
