    i installed an after market stereo in my 1997 infiniti j30. i had to buy the wire harness adapters as well as the antenna adapter and everything works and all the wires are going to the right places but no sound. if i use a speaker that i have for testing the stereo works great but as soon as i hook the stereo up to the car speakers it grounds out and i am pulling my hair out! its the car speakers that are not jiving with my after market radio. the speakers work fine with the stock stereo so i dont know whats going on and for the record i am very tech savvy and have installed many custom stereos in my day but this is killing me. thanks

    Michael, first double check ALL your fuses and make sure ALL your fuses are good. You can do this by using an Automotive Fuse Tester and making sure all of your fuses are not blown. If all of your fuses are good, your 1997 Infiniti J30 may have a factory amplifier that needs to be turned on by your after market radio. The car stereo amplifier trigger wire has to be wired up to turn on your factory amplifier to output sound from your speakers. Hope this points you in the right direction. Good luck with your 1997 Infiniti J30 stereo installation.

    Because I can’t leave a project in defeat I still went back and double checked everything and though I wasn’t aware that this car had an amplifier I hooked up the amp wire from the harness to my radio and presto! It had an amp. I just checked your email and it was great to see that you trouble shooting would have done the trick had I not been a stubborn hard head and figured it out myself. Thanks.
