I have a 2013 Subaru WRX Limited with the touch screen radio. Recently I realized that my radio lost sound just out of no where one day when my car didn't play music. The navigation and everything works fine, but no sound. I've had this problem for a week now and I checked the fuse for media and it's fine. What's bugging me is that the speakers work when I'm making a phone call through Bluetooth but when I play a song through it's silent. Nothing from AM/FM radio will work either but it works through AUX input.

I find it very strange and I was wondering what could be causing my speakers to not play music?

    Is this the OEM radio for your WRX? – Pᴀᴜʟsᴛᴇʀ2 Mar 18 '16 at 20:40
  • Are you sure that the car isn't waiting to play music through the bluetooth connection? – Ben Mar 18 '16 at 21:02
  • Oem radio, and no the car is not waiting for bluetooth because i switch it to radio setting and still nothing – filip babiuk Mar 20 '16 at 15:27
  • Have you done any modification to the wire harness or replaced the speakers? – Hᴇʀʙɪᴇ Mar 20 '16 at 19:24

    So, nothing plays through the bluetooth and nothing plays from the AM/FM radio. You do get signal through the aux and from bluetooth phone, do I have that right? Is there any additional information you can provide regarding symptoms? Have you tried deleting your phone regarding bluetooth synch out of the stereo as well as deleting your stereo out of the phone and re-pairing them? – DucatiKiller Mar 20 '16 at 21:32

Re-pair your phone with your car

Goto your phone and delete your car as an audio device.

Goto your car stereo and delete your phone as a source device.

Re-pair your phone and your car and see what happens.

Seems to be an effective fix for me when I occasionally encounter this issue.

  • That's nuts. You should down vote me though. Was worth a try in the troubleshooting process I guess. Good luck. – DucatiKiller Apr 6 '16 at 5:42

No signals on FM or AM ? How is the antenna connection? If it is a recent model car the radio antenna is in the rear window and the connection is near the upper left hand side. You would probably have to remove a piece of molding to get at it. The antenna itself looks like a piece of the the rear window defroster only with a few lines(3 or 4) . It is connected to a inline amplifier.

  • If the antenna was disconnected, there should still be sound (static), Right? The OP even said Bluetooth and AUX inputs gave no sound. – CharlieRB Aug 31 '16 at 18:11
