1991 Mustang GT no sound from radio -- What do you guys think?

Okay, so last Saturday I was driving back home, and my radio and everything worked completely fine. I parked my car, and left it until yesterday (Tuesday), and when I started up my car, absolutely no sound came from the radio. I checked it, and the time, station and all that stuff still works, however there is no sound coming from the speakers. I also checked the fusebox, and it seems that no fuses are blown. Also, this happened before for around 10-15 seconds, but I never thought about it twice... and also while the speakers were still working, there would occasionally be "popping" of sounds while the radio was on. Any help, or input would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Brian

P.S. I don't know much about cars, so please be gentle

It might just be that your radio went bad. Especially if it happened before, but came back on its own. Electronics usually give you this type of warning before they go out completely.

It might also be the factory amplifier went bad. But it think you would still get sound if the amp went bad, it would just be really low. Plus if you car does have a factory amp, i think it only powers the rear speakers anyway. So yeah.. i would say get a new radio. You would probably enjoy a new aftermarket radio more anyway.

Alright, thanks for the quick response. I will pick up some radio removal tools, and try to tinker around, smack the radio a bit, check the wiring. If that still doesn't help, I may pick up a new radio, and try to install it myself... I will update as I try to fix my radio...

Thanks,
Brian

Okay, so at first, I rewired everything using this harness: Metra Online | Metra Part # 70-1770 | Ford wire harness, and when I plugged in the new radio, the radio flashed "PROTECT", which means that there was some short somewhere in the speakers.

So today, I removed the factory amp, and unplugged the wires, and now the radio turns on, and I can fiddle around with the radio. HOWEVER, there is still no sound. So, I was wondering if I had to use the wires I unplugged from the amp, or something.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Brian
