Re: Head unit stopped working
There's a fuse on the back of the head unit. I was gonna say, check the fuse behind the head unit. Usually that controls the speaker output, from what I've been told. I've seen it happen where someone's CD Player went "dead" because no sound was coming out, but all it needed was a new fuse on the back of the head unit. Take the unit out of the dash, and around where the wires go into the cd player should be a fuse that you can easily pull out and replace. If it blows again soon, try going up 5 amps. I'm assuming it's 15 amps, as most, if not all, units are, so you can try 20 amps, but ONLY if the 15 blows again soon. It shouldn't cause a problem, since 5 amps isn't a lot. but you shouldn't go any higher than 5 over the recommended rating. Just from my past experience. If you go with 20 amps, you do so at your own risk though.
