    Ive got a 96 ford mustang…I bought this car about a week ago and when I did,It did not have a stereo in it. Since then Ive been trying to hook up a JVC stereo in it,with the wiring harness..Everything works great,except there is NO sound coming from the speakers…We ohmed the speakers and there is power coming from all 4 of them…Does anyone have any ideas or can tell me where to look or what to do? Thanks

    Stephanie, your vehicle may has a factory amplifier that needs to be turned on by your after market radio. Make sure your amp turn on wire is getting voltage at your factory amplifier. This will confirm that you radio is turning on your amp. Hope this helps. Good luck.
