Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the radio works otherwise normally but there is no sound then odds are the issue is with the amp, if equipped. If the amp is not functioning then you will have no sound. It will require some testing to determine what is going on. If the amp is not functioning it is either due to an internal failure or a loss of power or ground. One power feed comes from the radio and the other power feed to the amp is shared by the radio, so it won't be a blown fuse. The amp's power and ground feeds would need to be tested to know for sure if there is a wiring issue, but if it isn't functioning then odds are it has failed.
