    I'm more curious how there is an 03 CTS with only 13k miles lol

    When you say the CD player works, I'm assuming you mean the speakers play music with a CD, but not with the radio? So that would rule out amp and speaker issues. Perhaps something antenna wise? Doss the radio display any station data?

    Yes the radio displays the channel when you hit seek or push the presets , it does change channels but there is no volume , you can toggle between fm and am but no noise at all , not even static ? the cd player works fine

    Do you get the "hey dumbass" sound for when the keys are left in the ignition or headlights on with the doors open?

    My car did the same thing. It would last like 45 minutes each time. I would be listening to it and all of the sudden the sound would quit. The cd, xm or any radio channels or on star. I would turn the car off and on and nothing. Then out if nowhere it comes back on. Everything would display like it was working, cd counter, radio stations, everything. Mine just quite doing it one day and it didn't happen for months, I ended up putting a screen in my car though.

    Just a update , I bought a stock radio from a salvage yard and replaced the one in the car.It had the locked code and after a $30.00 trip to the dealer all is well .
    Also the drivers side courtesy light by your feet is still not working , the bulb is good , any thoughts?

    Thanks

    Re: 2003 CTS no Radio volume

    Did you figure this one out??? I just bought an 06 with the same issue. I don't get any sound out of the speakers at all. I tried a CD and nothing. Any ideas??? I am considering an entire replacement of stereo system but it would be nice to get the bose system working to see how it sounds


    thanks for any help.

    I wonder if your dash cluster was replaced at some point in time. Hence why you only have 13k on the odometer.

    Rimlight I am reading that this may be a common problem when the amplifier goes out. Check fuses and maybe pull unit and have it tested. It looks to be under a panel in the trunk on the drivers side. Could even be something small like a loose or broken connection. Let me know how it goes.
