Cd player or speakers

I have an aftermarket cd player and speakers/sub. The cd player acts like it works but no sound come out. Is this the cd player, fuse or some wiring problem?

If the cd player still comes on, it's most likely not a fuse. I'd say most likely a wire came loose. Each speaker wire hooks to the back of the head unit and if they're not soldered can come loose. Though it's a bit weird all the speakers don't work... Have they worked before?

Yes. I recently just bought this car and he told me they used to work. Would it just be smart to take it in to a audio place and have them look at it?

Yeah the speakers don't play at all. The cd player reads CDs and the radio seems to work. The time goes so it looks like it plays. But nothing comes out.

Ok look in the back of the deck first off. Make sure that all of the connections are connected. Firmly. Tug on them slightly and see if any are loose. Especially wiring harness that connects your Deck to the factory wires.

I checked the back of the cd player and it looked and felt like there way no loose wires. I could not tell what wires were going to what back there. I am putting my cd player in from my old car in so I might just unhook everything and start over completely. I read that one 6 speaker systems you need an adapter. I think it has one but I'm not for sure. Is there a website I can see the adapters or diagram for the car?

What is weird it everything looks like it is hooked up no loose wires or connections. I noticed there was a - ground behind the cd player that wasn't to anything. Could this be the problem? I'm thinking about just unhooking everything and starting new. My cd player has outputs for 4 speaks but the car has 6. What do I need? Plus I'm going to hook my subs up to my amp. I know how to do that. Should I just add my other amp to the car speakers or put all the speakers to my radio? What's a bypass the factory amps thing and how do I know if I have one

Does it have factory speakers or aftermarket? Do you have tweeters with covers that say Mach 460 on them?

Odds are that you don't have the factory amps any more. It doesn't look like you have an adaptor kit in there does it? It would have RCAs plugged in if there was an adaptor kit.

Yes it has 2 sets of RCA plugs to the back of the cd player. They both go to the amp in the back. It looks like the amp has all the speakers to it. the fuses on the amp is still good though.

Ok. Look for a blue wire with a white stripe coming from the stereo deck, is that connected to anything?

There is no blue wire with white stripe coming from the deck. There's a blue wire with white stripe coming from a harness that Is connected to an orange one from the same harness.

Hmm, on the adaptor kit I bought for my deck that wire was the amp power wire. If it wasn't hooked up then the speakers weren't going to work. I would try to look for a diagram of some sort specifying what wire goes to what from your head unit.

No. The remote wire is a different color on my cd player but it is hooked up. I want to switch decks anyways and put my subs in. What harness or how many do I need to bypass the factory amp. What do I need to do to do that?

I'm not quite sure if they make a harness to bypass the amps. I bypassed my door speaker amps using a picture that a guy named robertoonizer drew. The pictures should be in the Mach 460 bypass thread. I just used some extra speaker wire I had laying around

Check on crutchfield or sonicelectronix.com. U should find a bypass on there. I had a time with them. I ended up ripping all my factory mach 460 speakers and all amps out and replaced it all. That was actually easier than dealing with the 460. The 460 is a booger to work with. Horrible horrible sound system to work with. Great sound but agitating as h*** to run an amp kit around.

Also for any info u may need. Try the12volt.com or 12volt.com can't remember which one exactly it is. They have a lot of good info on there

Ok dude, listen to me. What kind of car is it? Every car has a different wiring harness to the factory stereo wires. What you NEED to make sure is that All the wires coming from the deck are connected to the right wires on the factory harness...unless its directly plugged into you deck. I say, you scrap the wiring harness it came with, if its factory, and buy a new one that FORSURE fits your deck. Then its simple to match up your wires. They usually are labeled right rear left rear that kinda thing. IF they arent wired right with the connections of the harness matching that of the deck, you wont get sound. Depending on the mismatch of wires. After that, there might be a deck problem....

Its an 89 mustang gt. I have the correct wiring harness and I know for a fact the cd player works. The wires are on it correctly ad snug. Ive done this so many times it's easy but I just can't get sound.
