installed radio, no sound. bummed

the new radio had connections for front and rear speakers. the original radio only had right and left wires to the radio.

since i seemed to only have one 'set', i just connected the new radio's 'front' wires to the old radio's left and right.

what did i do wrong?

Have you looked at the wiring diagram for your car?

On my 91 124 it has a fader to balance front and rear in the console. That had to be bypassed and wires run to the rear speakers.

Again, review the wiring diagram for your car.
This car had a history, now it has a future.

I ran into a similar problem installing a sony in our old Chevy truck. Hooked everything up and... Nothing. So, I read the book and called the "help" line and etc. Then I found out that the radio had to be "configured" in a menu for 2 channel stereo or 4 channel stereo on the display. I went thru all that crap and it has worked ever since. I also noticed that the radio didn't have fuses anywhere in the output section. The response I got from the "tech support" guy was that the radios no longer have fuses- but if they see too low a resistance- they "shut down" the output amp like a fast relay to prevent a bunch of warranty repairs from peple crossing wires when installing them. Good luck.
