1998 Volkswagen Cabriolet Repair Question
98 VW CABRIO - Replaced the radio; speakers stopped working
have you tested yours speakers?
Yes, they work.
does old radio work speakers if you try it again?
are speakers original equipment?
yes, the only item changed was the radio. As I said, the speakers worked initially with the new unit.
does your radio manual have a trouble shoot section? any chance mute is enabled like poor reception?
Yes I have a manual. I'll check the mute function again when I get home this evening. Pretty sure that's not it though. I confirm tomorrow. Thanks.
This might not be a fix... but it could be part of the issue.
One if the wires has to be interfering with the new radio or the
radio with the stock wiring.

"I was about to select my first pre-set and all of a sudden quiet."
Are we to assume there was some sound at first, then it quit? If there was never any sound, the car probably has an external amplifier that needs a turn-on signal. All aftermarket radios have a wire for that. It is usually blue and may be labeled "power antenna" or "remote".
