HELP!

I just tried installing a Sony CDX-M600 in my 2001 Sahara. It went ****ty. Everytime I truned it on, it was at full blast. Then the seek didn't work and only two radio stations wiould play. I took this radio out of my 87 YJ and it worked great in it. I think the factory sub has something to with it, but now my radio is broke. The face is stuck half way closed. What a day it has been

I used a scosche wiring harness. It goes from the factory to the sony. In my 87 I did all the wiring and it worked fine. I think it is the factory sub which isn't worth a sh** to begin with. I have no idea what happened and now i have to send out my radio to get fixed$$$.

Not sure about the volume but did you make sure you plugged your antenna wire back in when you put it back in the dash? I know it is short on a TJ and easily forgettable. That would make the seek just keep trying to find a station.

Peace,

i already posted this on another topic but i messed it up so here i go again..... does ur jeep have volume controls on the steering wheel? if so your prob could be that the wires are crossed or just set up wrong. Its worth a look.

I did plug in antenna. No volume controls on wheel. I didn't know a Wrangler could come with volume controls on the steering wheel. Do you guys know a place on the web were I can get a good deal on a radio. Doesn't have to be sony.

Try hitting the reset button on the radio. If that doesnt work toss it. It happens and its common when you swap them. Look into Clarion, Pioneer, or Panasonic they are the most reliable best sounding radios on the market.
