Did you purchase the wiring harness for the vehicle? Did the last radio work?

The wires in the truck, what color are the wires? Disregard the ones you have connected for power.

left front tan and gray right front dark green and light green left rear brown and yellow right rear blue and light blue. I, used the wiring hornnes that came with the receiver so I,had to connect it by changing the order of wiring constant is orange in the truck and the ignition is yellow and so forth red to orange and yellow to red either way I, still don't have sound and when I, go online to find out where the factory amp is located I, can;t get a straight answer. I.m sure if I, can find way to bypass the factory amp I, could probably bypass it and get the sound.

If you had those wire colors they are the wires that were plugged into the factory amplifier. One of 3 possible causes. 1. All of the speakers are bad. 2. You have a shorted speaker or a grounded speaker wire. 3. That Gem of a radio has no output.

The radio I, installed was a radio from my other car and worked great, the speakers works as well, everything I, read leads me to a factory amp, the factory system was a three way system. I, can;t seem to get a answer on where it's located, I. would like to bypass the amp if possible. But first I, need to locate it.
