This could be a lot of things, could be the speaker has failed or the wires came loose. Could be a power issue to the radio module etc.

SOURCE: radio wont work but navigation and tv working

Dude, i had the same problem. I tightened up the relay from the positive terminal on the battery that sits right next to the terminal, i took off the negative and put it back on, and unplugged the wires that go from amp to speakers and plugged them back in. started working fine. It would be your best bet to reset the comp by taking off neg. and putting back on.

SOURCE: Everything works except the radio. It appears

If have factory amp you have to find the turn ou wre for the amp and hook it up to the amp turn on wire from the radio(bootleg way sound might cut in & out) or go to local sound shop and get a bypass for the amp

SOURCE: Sound stopped working except system sounds


I don´t know do you have pc or laptop, and what system you have.
Newest comp. and laptops, need two drivers for sound with win. xp.
One standard drivers, and second bus master for sound. If sound sometime works, and sometime don´t works, you must install standard drivers then second drivers.

If you have some older pc, I think that is the best new system and new sound drivers, or you must look for you chipset and install right drivers.

SOURCE: I installed radio everything works

Double check your speaker connections. Make sure + goes to plus and - to minus (phase) and make sure all are grounded properly. Is there an amp possibly in line? If so, make sure connections are good there also make sure powered up (it happens to all of us)

SOURCE: everything IS WORKING EXCEPT THE BACK UP CAMERA AND RADIO. The Camera stopped working shortly before the radio quit working. Are the 2 problems related?

Could be, but not likely. The back up camera gets power when the car goes into reverse. As soon as video is present, the screen switches so you see the camera. The radio has fuses for the light that connects to the instrument cluster light dimmer. Another gets connected to the ignition switch run wire so the radio goes on and off with the ignition switch. The last fuse goes to a wire that has voltage on it all the time. This is what keeps the radio station memory alive when the radio is off with the key. Locate those fuses in the harness on the radio to see if one is blown.

Dewalt dc011 recently the fm stations stopped working...only hearing static. i returned the radio back to home depot for a new one. just trying avoid it happening again. the only thing I could have done...

as it is a tough radio to take the knocks it probaly gets knocked around a bit- make sure the antenna is not loose! or damaged have you rotated it a bit too much and snapped the wire inside? try AM to prove it (if Fitted), AM doesntuse the external aerial
Good Luck!

No am radio but fm works fine

I don't know why you need AM, but that's not the issue.
If you have FM and HEAR it ok, then everything is fine. You've hooked it up right.
Not being able to find AM, is in the new radio.
You need to look to see how to tune to AM.
Maybe the paperwork that came with it!

Got wet, display turns on, no sound

The salt water (you did say beach) shorted the innards. There is probably still salt in/on a lot of the electrical components causing shorts. Probably should give up on it.

My radio on my 2003 9-3 saab does not power up

ok- i just fixed my problem. took about 5 mins and zero dollars. underneath the drivers seat is the amplifier. mine was fine, just unplugged. so i plugged it in- all is ok/.

i thought of this after I read a few of the posts, and remembered that it stopped working suddenly ne day when i went over a huge bump in the road. my initial thought was that i jarred something loose on the radio itself, but EVERYTHING else worked except the sound, and the display for the radio.

give it a try. Saab wanted $159 just to LOOK at the car, and a car radio guy said they needed to send out the whole console (radio, onstar, cd player)

save a few bucks- small hands preferred, as the amp is placed in an awkward position under the seat. also, there is a spot to secure it to the frame (floor) of the car- a simple screw... my screw was conveniently missing... hmmmm..

good luck

No AM long wave radio

The antenna wire could be loose.
