Angry 1999 Mustang stereo not working

Hi, I have a 99 Ford mustang GT, it was parked for about 3months and when I started using it again I noticed the stereo is not working. It has the factory set, which is the seperate cd player and cassette player. Can anyone tell me what I should do? Everything else in the car is functioning perfectly.

mine did same thing about a year ago.. i believe it was a black wire with a pink stripe, i ran power from the fuse box to that and got it to work.. i would double check that that is a power wire be4 jumping power to it.. its hard to correct an electrical problem over a forum, but its start.. use a test light or ohm meter if ur any good with electric.. if neither r getting power i believe the one with tape player is the main power so start there.. the cd player gets its power from the tape player.. i hope this helps, like i said its hard correct an electrical problem, i could be blown fuse, short to ground, open in wire.. many options.. i would start by finding a wiring diagram and checking u have powers and grounds... i currently replaced my head unit with an after market, only about 3 of the wires r needed to make it power up.. so if the head unit itself works u only need 3 wires hooked up for it to power on, possibly only 2.. the others a all for dimmers, antennas, speakers, ect. u can pm me if ur still stuck after u find a wiring diagram and check ur power and ground at head unit if ur still stuck

Welcome to AFM! Did you jump it to get it going again or did it just start on it's own? It's possible that a fuse was blown if so... just starting with the easy things to check. Does it just not come at all... no lights or anything? Give us a bit more info and we'll help any way we can.
Thanks for joining!

hey, i finally changed the fuse for the stereo. Its coming on now and i can see the cd player playing the cd, but I cannot hear anything. Do you know what this could be? Do i have to reset it or something?
