no sound from the radio

hi all
I have a Y reg sporting which still has the factory fitted soundsystem. Yesterday sound just stopped coming from the speakers. The radio changes channel/ searches for cd and appears to play ok, just no sound (and yes I have tried turning up the volume ).

Since this has started,, I`ve noticed like a faint fizzing sound coming from the dashboard. It only happens when the car is moving and not when stopped.


Any help much appreciated as I know nothing about cars!

Re: no sound from the radio

hmm sounds like abreak in teh wire allthough not sure that can hapen on its own. is steange that all the speakers have stopped working. as they all have seperate wires to each one. have you got the factory sub in the boot? check the plug is in that and that the fuse in hasnt blown its on teh top just puls out. they are the easiest things to check firrst.

Re: no sound from the radio

Mine does that. All I do is take the fuse out and put it back in and it sparks back to life. The previous owner must of had the same problem as the fuse has been marked with an *. Took it back to Fiat dealer who said there was nothing wrong with it and if it does it again I should take it to an audio specialist. When I got home and looked up audio specialists who should be advertising their services? Yep the very dealer I had just come from! Useless, haven't been back to them. Sometimes on mine the backlight lights up when you put the key in the ignition all though the radio is switched off!
