Stereo Does Not Power On
This may be a fuse problem. Check all fuses first. There are three fuses to this system.

  • Constant +12 volts supplied to car stereo for retaining the memory station preset buttons. Located under hood of car near battery. This fuse can be labeled "Back Up".

  • Switched +12 volts supplied to car stereo when ignition is turned on. This fuse is located in fuse panel in car. This fuse can be labeled "Stereo" or "Radio".

Note - The first two +12 volt powers may be checked at the back of the car stereo connector. See "Wire Harness Diagrams".

If all +12 volt powers are present at car stereo, this is a car stereo problem. See shipping before sending for repair.

 

   

Stereo On With No Sound
This is most likely a stereo problem. Although, troubleshooting at least one speaker location may help in determining this problem.  See shipping before sending stereo for repair.

 

   

Speakers Have Static
Requires troubleshooting! This problem can be speakers or a Bose Equalization circuit.
If the static is from one speaker, remove the speaker. You can either remove the opposite side speaker and swap or hook any other know working speaker to this location. Testing purposes only, most Bose speakers are 1-2 ohms. Other car speakers are 4 ohm, home speakers can be 8 ohm. You may find the audio level drops when testing with another speaker. It will because you are not testing with a Bose speaker.

Does the problem

  • Follow the speaker if swapping or disappear with a good speaker?

  • Remain in the same position?

If the problem remains in the same position, this is likely a Bose equalization circuit problem. Send entire stereo and equalization circuit when sending for repair. All know problems are attended to when in shop.

If the problem follows the speaker or disappears with another known working speaker connected, this is a speaker problem. The dealer$hip is very proud of their Bose speakers. These Bose speakers can be purchased directly from Bose for $40 each including shipping. Bose Customer Service (800)231-2673. When calling this number, you may be directed to voice mail, it may take several days for Bose to return your call.
