No sound coming from speakers. Bose.


I have a 159 with Sat Nav unit and Bose. Theres no noise coming from the system at all. I've checked the fuses. Can anyone give me any suggestions? Before anyone asks the volume is up and it's not on mute

Thanks in Advance!

Have you played around with the system at all, or just silent one morning?
There should be a signal wire at the back of the stereo, or there is a secondary fuse box in the boot (high on the left hand side).

Fuse in the amp / woofer would be my guess.

I suspect what he means is a processor chip in the amp had fried meaning it wasn't processing any signal from the head unit and therefore not producing any sound.

I believe there's an issue with the older bose amps as used in the 156 where a soldering joint gave away, with the same results. I'm not sure if the 159 Bose amp is technically different from the 156 amp, but the exterior likely is..
