Unhappy Help my radio stopped working


My radio stopped working, it is after market and has a sub. the speakers have nothing coming out but the sub is still working. I'm leaving on a 750 mile journey in 3 days and I need to fix it because I need my jams!


I checked the wiring and all looks good there.

I think your bluapunkt pullout might have had a positive electro wave go through due to a invalid code coming from the computer of your 05 town and country....

On a serious note we can’t guess your car, your deck model number type or anything else off of your post. Give more info so we can ask questions or give suggestions.

Buy a bluetooth speaker.

The amps have a small gauge wire that turns them on and off. Check if it is giving you 12V AND that it is hooked up.
I am gonna guess your amp for the speakers is fubared. Seems the sub amp is ok.
Check by hooking up the sub amp to the speakers and vice versa.

You can verify working speaker and wiring with a 9v battery, with the head unit or amp disconnected hold one wore to the battery and strike the other across the other battery terminal. It will make a pop sound and if you're looking at it visually move. If this fails you have a wiring issue or blown speakers.

You can test stereo and amp output with a test lamp.
