radio stopped working

Hi folks!

Driving home from work last night when all of a sudden my radio just stopped playing music. It happened with a sort of bang and pop you get when you get interference in the speakers.

I tried getting ir to work today, but still no luck, it turns on ok, but it doesn't play any music whatsoever. Just that interference noise now and again..

Any suggestions as to what to check?

Don't think I could own a car without a radio!!

In short, take out the stereo unit (using the 4 holes in the corners) and see if any of the plugs have come out of the back, or if anything has burnt out. if you can get another head unit to plug in and see if that works, then youll know what the problem is

and check any fuses, of course

Will do, need to source someone from NI with a 159 to check head units!


There is interference only from one speaker in the rear. My thoughts are there may be an issue with this one speaker.. but that wouldn't stop the whole system working?

Does your Blue&Me still work when using the phone?

Assuming no sound from any source then perhaps the head unit might have popped. Not sure if it has its own fuse on the rear of the unit in addition to the wiring loom ones but worth checking. At least there are plenty of cars being broken now so sourcing another unit wouldn't be difficult.
