98 ZJ No audio from aftermarket headunit

Hi, everyone, I have a 98 ZJ laredo,with no audio. I do get audio from the sub but that's about it. I did tons of searches. So now its time to ask for help. I have a Alpine Headunit, cde 1333bt, with NO infinity amp, and 2 12in Polk DB, and a 1000 powertube amp.

I tired all the general info. Like checking the # 1 and #7 fuse but 20amp that's fine. All wiring has no issues, No shorts

I don't want to re-wire my truck, but is there anything I have missed?

Thanks again

Sure you have the speakers wired properly? Obviously you're getting power/sound to/from the sub, so there's no issue there. Ruling out possibilities, I'm left with wiring to the speakers. Pull the headunit, and rewire those leads. That's about all you can do.

Here is a link to the color codes on all of the wiring for the stereo. Not trying to disrespect, but did you check to see if the mute was on?

I'm going to bet that it works in FM mode and not in CD or any other media mode. On mine the factory amp wire is also the antenna wire for some reason. I had to use my radio's amp turn on wire for the antenna and factor amp and sub amp.
