Help! Sound is not working and volume doesn't work!
My Cadillac CTS 2003 does not give any sort of sound whats so ever. The volume doesn't even show or work at all?
Car was recently purchased off craigslist without owners manual. The previous owner said their children put coins into the radio and ever since it stopped working. So i went along and purchased a new radio and got it coded (programmed for the car) along with a new amplifier (since the dealer said the old amp was no good) and still nothing.
I have checked all the fuses and replaced any that were missing. Lastly I took one of the rear door speakers out and connected it directly to the radio from two metal wires and it gave sound. But then again, i cannot control the sound volume and sound throughout the car will not work. I don't believe it is the radio, since it is new or the amplifier. Another note, the volume on the steering wheel does not respond, the car doesn't chime when the door is open, and none of the on-star or emergency buttons give any sort of sound?
I did take it to the dealer, they said the ground is appears to be good, but they charge insane prices just to even take a look at the car...
AGAIN: ANY SORT OF INFORMATIONAL HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED. THANKS FOR YOUR TIME.
