the radio lights up tunes in channels when you press mute on the steering wheel controls mute lights pree the phone button phone lights on the radio just no sound at all and no door chimes either I have already pulled the radio out and all wires are plugged in I also just bought vehicle the dealer stated that it worked when they took it in on trade and the previous owner supossidly called and terminated her onstar service
Expert:  Gary replied 5 years ago.
ok...well more than likley the radio has failed..the odds of all the speakers going out is slim..but if you have a mulit meter we could verify it..ill do what ever you want me to...you tell me

none of the diagrams are visable
Expert:  Gary replied 5 years ago.

put your meter on A/C voltage and find you speaker wires off of the radio to any speaker..just pick on and with vehicle on and the radio on put meter at those 2 wires in the back of the radio and see if you have any A/C voltage..if you do then get to the amp under the back near the sub and do the same with A/C voltage for a speaker OFF OF THE AMP..and see if you have any A/C voltage..ok?
