Welcome, I'm Chris (aka-Moose).

  • FEES, I am a user of the website like you, not an employee. Any fee or account questions need to be addressed to the website.
  • PHONE CALLS are automatically offered by the website. I or another may take the call if you request one.

Yeah there's no sound. It's glowing and the display is on, but when I connect my phone with an aux cord or connect with Bluetooth there is no sound. It says it's connected but no sound

Thanks, ***** ***** ends up being a failure of the amps since it controls all the speakers from inputs from the radio. Step one of the diagnostics is to use a scan tool to retrieve the codes stored by the audio system.

Now that I have posted a partial or complete answer, you will see you can rate me. The deposit you have already paid is not transferred to me until you rate me. I would like to receive nothing less than 5-star excellent ratings. So if we are not there yet, please reply and let me help more. If you're not pleased, let me know because rating bad does not result in a refund, there are better options. Rating now will not close this post nor prevent replying. Thanks Chris
