radio seems to work but no sound?

I have a 2003 3.5SE with a stock radio. The radio seems to work, I can pick stations etc, turn volume up and down, but there is never any sound that comes out of the speakers

Any ideas what could be wrong? maybe an amplifier fuse somewhere? I looked at the mirror/audio and woofer fuses under the dash, they are both good

Either the plug in the back came loose or the built in amp is dying.. I think mine is on the way too. one speaker stops working then starts again a few min later.

I reseated the plugs, but as you'd imagine that didn't do anything

So just to confirm, there is no external amplifier in this car? Does anyone have a known good factory radio kicking around?

I had the same issue with two former cars. You need a new stereo IMO. Speakers are prob fine.

were you ever able to hear music or did you buy the car like that? if it has been like that since you bought it, have you looked under the rear deck from the trunk to make sure the previous owner didn't take the speakers out? not likely, but you never know...

lol yeah it worked fine until this weekend

I'm going to scour ebay, I suppose. I saw a lot of them on there.

Oh just to clarify, if I had a Bose head unit it would clearly say "BOSE" on it somewhere right? I saw one that looked just like mine on ebay, but the description said it was bose. I don't want to buy the wrong thing!

You weren't helping someone move this weekend were you? Then, while putting a box in the trunk, it whacked one of the speaker connections and cracked it? So now a bare speaker wire has grounded out, and is causing the sound to completely cut out on all speakers, not just the one with the damaged connection? So now it works fine sometimes, and then for some unknown reason it will cut out completely, especially when driving over bumps?

Don't ask how I know this...

Hey, my stereo looks exactly like that only it does not say Bose in it and it does not have the "6" button. So it's the standard one??

^^^ It probably is. The CD6 means it's a 6 disc cd changer, you may not have that. Take a pic and post it up so I can see.

If you don't have the Bose label on the front where the audio is then you do infact have to alternate speaker system.
