  1. I installed a aftermarket radio to my 2000 chevy malibu and i have recently put into two new rear speakers but i am not getting any sound at all. The factory ones i had in before was working just fine before I replaced the 6x9s in the back. anyone?

  2. I installed an aftermarket deck in my 2000 chevy malibu and my dashboard lights dont work anymore. Could this have anything to do with the aftermarket deck? anyone?

  3. I’m having trouble as both my rear speakers rarely work. I know both speakers are still in good shape as every now and then (especially when my car has been left in the sun for extended periods of time) both speakers will kick in and work perfectly. I followed the wiring from end to end and there does not seem to be any disconnects. Any ideas?

    Tara, you will need an automotive auxiliary input adapter. This adapter will allow you to input any mp3 player or portable music player into your factory radio. This is the easiest and most cost effective way to add an audio input into your factory stereo. Here is the adapter you will need:

    If you’ve never installed car audio before, we advise you to take your car to an experienced mobile audio installer. Hope this helps. Good luck with your 2000 Chevrolet Impala aux input adapter installation.

  5. Where is the aux jack in a 2000 Chevy Malibu? There is a button that says ‘CD/AUX’ impling that it should have one correct? Thanks

  6. I am having the same problem. Someone told me I must wire the AMP trigger wire but I cannot find a diagram to save my life. Is there any way to bypass this?

  7. Hey, I want to put an amp and subs in my 2000 Malibu. I’ve installed systems in cars before but never had to deal with a Theftlock cd player. Anything I need to be careful about?

    Uzziah, you may have mixed up the battery constant and accessory switched wires. The battery constant always sends power to the radio to save your radio stations and other audio settings. The accessory switched wire sends power to your radio only when the key is in the ignition and your 2000 Volkswagen Golf is on. Check your wiring and make sure the correct radio wires are hooked up to the correct wires on your factory harness. Hope this helps. Good luck with your 2000 Chevrolet Malibu radio installation.

  10. The 2000 Malibu is not one of the cars whos airbags are effected by aftermarket radios correct?

    Kyle, your 2000 Chevrolet Malibu 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. Unfortunately, we do not have this information but maybe someone from the Modified Life community can post that information here. Hope this helps. Good luck.

  12. I put everything together EXACT… I have power and everything… It looks great.. but I don’t have any sound coming from any speakers.. I promise all connections are well put together… please help me troubleshoot. Thanks a lot.

  14. i want to thank you for your time, this is a great site. helped so much with my new system. Thanks.

    Travis, it sounds like your speaker may need replacement. Try removing your speaker and hooking it up to another audio source to see if its actually blown. If the speaker works then you may have to replace your factory radio or factory amplifier if your car is equipped with one. Hope this helps. Good luck.

  16. hey, my right rear speaker is no longer working.. what can i do to fix this?

    Alex, technically you can run a wire to the ignition switch harness (red wire) for your radio constant wire. Just make sure you run an in-line fuse on the accessory wire to prevent damage from any shorts. Hope this helps.

  18. my constant wire orange is not working. i tested it
    what do i do? 2000 malibu
