Common Causes of Car Sound System Problems 

There are many ways in which a vehicle sound system can break down and stop working. If the audio system won’t turn on at all, it is likely due to a blown fuse or an issue with the system’s wiring. If the system works but turns off on its own, there is likely a power supply problem impacting the system. If the stereo system stops working when the road gets bumpy, it is usually an issue with a loose connector at the back of the system’s head unit.

Issues With Poor-Quality Audio and Static 

If your vehicle’s sound system stays active during your travels but doesn’t sound like it used to, or is emitting static, the speakers themselves may be blown out and in need of replacement. Unfortunately, audio equipment will degrade with regular usage, and will eventually require replacement from an automotive specialist.
