Q: My radio sound went out

asked by on

My sound on my radio went out randomly.

My car has 14000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

The cause of that is either a defect in the radio (including the volume control which is repairable) or a problem with the wiring to the speakers. To distinguish between the two causes you can temporarily directly wire a known good speaker to the radio and see if it works. If it works, the problem is in the vehicle speaker wiring. If there is still no sound, then the radio is defective. Radios can be repaired and used ones are readily available, too. If you want these steps performed by a certified Mechanic, dispatched by YourMechanic right to your location, please request a non functioning car radio diagnostic and the responding certified mechanic will get this taken care of for you. If you have further questions or concerns, do not hesitate to re-contact YourMechanic as we are always here to help you.
