Q: Car stereo not working

asked by on January 22, 2016

My stereo comes on, but there is no sound coming from my speakers.

Have a mechanic, such as one of our YourMechanic experts, check the audio system’s electrical connections and fuses. The mechanic should check the operation of the radio head unit as well as look for any internal faults.
