Hello,

It sounds like a fuse has gone out because there are three that run the system. Here are some 3 radio wiring diagrams so you can see which fuses that are. I will include the fuse box diagrams as well and a guide to show you how to do the testing.

and to make sure each component it getting power and ground

Do you have a Bose system? If so, the sound signal level from the radio is not yet amplified. In my Bose, the speaker amp is located at the bottom of the rear dash in the trunk. I think it has a separate power fuse.

Please let us know what you find.

Cheers, Ken

pennies were put in tape deck. It smoked a little & sound went out. Coins were removed, I get light indicating the stations and cd will play but no sound. Is this only a blown fuse, fussed circuit, or blown system all together?

You have one of three problem, the radio, speakers (unlikely) or the speaker connection to the radio.

What you need to do is remove the radio to make sure all connections are plugged in. If they are, I recommend taking the radio to a stereo shop that can check bench test it. Most shops have speakers, a power supply, and can tell you if the radio is bad in under 5 minutes. Also, most don't charge to do it.

In this case, if all connections are attached and tight, I feel the amp in the stereo has gone bad and is no longer supplying a signal to the speakers.

Let me know what you find or if you have other questions.

Joe
