Curious about stereo in dash
My CD/Radio in the dash acts like it is working fine but there is no sound. None. I took it to Car Toys, a car stereo install store, they said it "may be the amp under the driver seat is bad". They say the amp is married to the deck in the dash and both "may" need to be replaced. Gone are the days of the cheap car stereos. A good in-dash unit that will have backup camera, probably cost around $800 and an amp yet more. Would it work with the car's speakers? Dunno. I'd rather not have to spend $1000 or more to have a working radio in this car. If there was a way to know for sure that the amp under the driver seat is bad, then another (used) one could probably be found..
