    So I went over a bit of a bump in the road and the sound just stopped. Stereo powers on and off yet no sound. I've checked the wires in the back, all ok also took the door cards off nothing there, even down to the fuses and nothing has blown. Umm, help

    Have you a spare deck you can lob in to test? It's all ISO behind there so as long as you have an ISO plug on the deck you test fit you should be good.

    If you're Herts way I'm quite happy to pop one of my spares in to test for you?

    You really need to sort your wiring out mate lol.

    It could be your stereo.

    I got spare stereos but I need radio codes.

    Another option is some tape, wires and a 1.5v battery.
    Very crude but it will test your speaker connections from the stereo.

    Connect the cables to the plus and negative of the battery and then touch the cables to the connection for each speaker (unplug the stereo) and you should hear them go thud.
    Not a massive thud but enough for you hear if the speaker is working.
