: New Radio Problem

11-05-2008, 12:44 PM
I put a Sony radio in my BMW and i hooked everything up there are some wires that did not hook up to anything. Or should I say the diagram didn' t say to hooke them up. Well the radio powers up but I can't get any sound. What am I doing wrong.

I ran into a simmilar problem. It wound up being the the wrong blue wire (on the sony radio ) being hooked up, try swaping the blue wires

Sounds like the radio is fine but the amp in the trunk is not recieving a signal to turn on.

It was the AMP wire. Works great now.
