radio in my Pro-V

8 posts in this topic

The radio in my Pro-V is not working. I have power to it and the display works but I get no sound. Is it possible the speakers are shot? Will the water resistant speakers put up with the pounding (and dousing) they can take on Mille Lacs?

Any thoughts?

Possible mouse problem?? Just a thought. I have a Pro-V myself. On mine, to access the back of the console and radio, I remove the glove box. You might want to take a look and see if the 'mousie electrical squad' has been working overtime. I know...you ask what would mice want to do with wiring, Well...They'll have to be able to repair stuff after humans are gone, won't they?? grin They're just practicin'!! Phred52

if u havent puled your speakers off take a look there first if ur fishing milac'a quite a bit the wires may have come off on the speakers..or u can buy another pair of speakers or get some from some body and hook them up and see if they work..keep box and receipt so if you need to take them back..that is where i would check first to narrow it down

Definitely check the wiring to the speakers, that sounds like the culprit to me. A loose connector, or as mentioned above, mice are often the culprit.

I've checked all of the above. I'm assuming the speakers may have gotten too wet but maybe not. I'll have to buy speakers and switch them out.

It seems odd to me that none of them work, or that they all stopped working at the same time if the speakers were the culprit.

Are you sure you didn't bump a fader / balance control?

I'd also check the connector on the back of the radio where the speaker wires connect to make sure it's not a loose connection.

I would check the wire harness in the back of the deck as well, maybe that's loose?

Everyone else says it could be wiring, but unless a mouse did a good number on plenty of your wires, I would find it hard that both speakers are knocked out.

If you have only 2 speakers, check and make sure the fade is set correct.

Checking the adapter in the back is a good idea, but most adapters are either in or out....so likely if you had no speakers, potentially your radio wouldn't get power either.

If the speakers were "shot" or blown, I'd also think you'd at least get crackling out of them. You can try switching them to the "rear wiring" to see if that helps.

Pending on the age of the head unit, I would go out on a limb and possibly say your "amp" in the head unit is shot and you aren't getting any power for the speakers from that. If that is the case, time for a new head unit. I have seen "kids" before hook up a 12 volt light to amps before to give a "blink" when their subs hit. I would think you could use a 12 volt tester to see if you are getting power out of the head unit to a speaker.

Good luck in your tests and lets us knwo what you find!

    • That is what I am trying to figure out.    Considering the party in the white House the only reason he/she got the sentence changed has 100% to do with his/her corporal Klinger syndrome.    And if that is the case the President should just walk away today before he causes any more harm.
    • The US gets Assange this way. Not difficult to understand.
    • It has a slight liberal bias: all major news media lies between the political ideology of a typical Democrat and a typical Republican. No outlet is going to intentionally dissuade 30% of the market, it's just bad business. With regards to Trump though, he has made an enemy of the press. It has little to do with his political affiliation and everything to do with his confrontational attitude. See this "come at me bro" of a statement from the Press Corps. Note they welcome Trump to sue them for the so called "fake news", probably because they are confident in the accuracy of their articles. Also realize that it is entirely possible for something to be accurate and biased: which is probably all you will see in Trump coverage from here until the end of his Presidency    
    • So we support intelligence depts now?
    • You mean fake Bruce Springsteen.  The real one is a librul and the fake one didn't want to urinate on the bed of the real one.   I'm sure Trump wanted them to play "Born in the USA" like all the other politicians that have no clue what that song is about but like the chorus.  
    • I'm trying to wrap my head around this one. Obama truly is a bigger POS than I thought. Good, God this is bizarro world. By commuting the sentence of this freak show, it's like burning down all the intelligence depts. Why do we have laws? 
    • So Obama is mad at the Russians for hacking and Wikileaks for publishing the hacks yet he just Pardoned Chelsea Bradley Manning who stole secrets and gave them to Wikileaks   This is a real WTF moment.
    • You failed to post the very next part of that very article:     You never patted Obama on the back for any of that oddly enough.    http://www.reuters.com/article/cbusiness-us-gm-tech-center-renovation-idCAKBN0NZ19920150514   So either congratulate both or congratulate neither.
