Problem with my 2004 Chevy Impala. Check engine light/Traction Control.New brakes and rotors all around. I got into my car a week ago and turned on the radio after turning on the car and it came on but I have no sound at all. My chimes that indicate low fuel, and seat belts are also affected.
I checked the fuses and breakers to no avail. The connections to the power amp are also intact. As well my traction control light and warning comes on every time I make a right turn and there's a grinding noise when I drive the car over 25 MPH.
Just so i am clear, the radio has a display, you can change stations, see clock, etc, but no sounds That's correct. I looked at all the relays and fuses and everything seems in order.
I was using my blue tooth with the radio for hands free cell phone operation, but that ceased when the system went out. No chimes for seat belts, low fuel or any other alert happens now. HELP !
OK. Then this is either an amp problem, or radio problem.
The audio system controls the chimes also.
You would need to bypass the amp and connect the speaker wires from the radio, to the speaker wires going from amp to the speaker,
to determine if the radio is outputting any sound. The radio sends speaker output to the amp, then the amp sends it to the speakers.
Answer: OK, well, the code is a problem in the evaporative emissions system vent valve solenoid. Either a problem with a bad solenoid, of the circuits that control it. these solenoid valves are quite common to fail, bu the only way to be sure would be to use a scanner that can control the system, and use a test light to test for power and ground. Usually it is a bad solenoid valve.
This part is located attached to the vapor canister, inside the lf. rear fender. Is accessed from under the car.
