    I am installing an interface harness for aftermarket stereo in a 2008 chrysler PT cruiser. I had to run an accessory wire separately. The stereos turns on but no sound is coming out to speakers. I’m thinking I did it wrong. can u help? Oh because I have interface wires left over not plugged to no where and the other half of wires are putting power to interface. Thanks.

    Henry, 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 2008 Chrysler PT Cruiser may have a factory amp that needs to be turned on by your after market radio. The car radio amplifier trigger wire has to be wired up to turn on your factory amplifier to output sound from your speakers. We currently do not have any information on the 2008 Chrysler PT Cruiser amplifier turn-on wire but hopefully someone from our Modified Life community would be able to chime in and help you out.

    Yeah i have a 2008 chrysler pt cruiser and i’m trying to install a line out converter. i dont know what speaker wires to use??

    Biguce, when splicing in the RCA Line Out Converter, tap your factory rear speaker wires to get a full range audio source. We suggest you invest in some solid wire taps that wont come loose. These wire tap connectors will allow you to tap into wires without cutting and installs in seconds by hand with no crimping or tools required. If you install a line out converter, your rear speakers will still work properly. 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 2008 Chrysler PT Cruiser amplifier installation.
