Sony aftermarket stereo working but no sound

Post by Discodave » Tue Nov 17, 2015 8:54 pm

Hi
I've put a Sony stereo in my 2002 406 executive. It is working but there's no sound from the speakers. I tried a old goodman's stereo and it worked. The Sony one works in my vectra fine. Can anyone help ?

I would suspect that the speaker connections are different, you probably need an adaptor lead, check on ebay.

Something like this only check the radio model number. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CT20PE02-Peug ... u-XMyJXwiw

Doesn't an executive have an amplifier lurking somewhere? :?

Certainly one that age will have. Maybe it doesn't get enabled unless it recognises the head unit's on?

So then presumably it needs a switched live from the head unit. Umm, it'd probably be important to remove it and bridge the speaker wires :shock:

2002 is probably full-mux fires up Sedre...

I would suggest to check these with a meter while you have it in bits, rather than assume these pin outs are 100% accurate...

Don't just power it up, it'd probably simultaneously blow all the speakers...

I suspect you might want to add some crossovers in there.

Nah, no multihex wires on the amp.
