I heard its the amp and heard the radio. I looked in the console and seen where prevous owner had hooked up an amp cause the lill black box and the rca cables are still hooked up. i havent looked behind the radio to see if every thing is hooked up but should be if it powers up. Any help please.

using a standard test light, turn on the head unit and check remote on /amp turn on power, if good with unit on, probe any one of the output wires from the head unit you should hear a pop from the speaker corresponding to the wiring bellow if you do amp is more than likely good if not amp is out or possibly in protect mode indicating a shorted speaker
let us know your findings
