Customer Question
Hooking up aftermarket stereo...

Hooking up aftermarket stereo but no sound is coming out. It powers up but no sound. I used wiring harness kit

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked all the fuses? Do you have a wiring diagram?

No wiring diagram. Matched all the colors up like kit said. There is another harness from the old delco radio

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your GM?

2000 Yukon xl 1500 4wd

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Yukon XL yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have only tried replacing the stereo. I’m just not sure why I have no sound coming out

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No that’s it just trying to get new stereo to work
