Q: Stereo not working

asked by on January 27, 2016

The stereo is not working and two of the speakers are out.

Hi there. A common solution for a radio that does not work is to have a mechanic check any fuses or connections that go to your stereo. As for your speakers not working, this may be due to a loss of connection to the speakers or if you vehicle is equipped with an upgraded factory system, the amps channel may be burned out. Have a certified technician inspect the stereo issue to determine the proper repair.
