2009 Toyota Venza w/JBL --RR does not power on, no audio

Post by Danieloreta » Tue May 07, 2019 7:19 am

2009 Toyota Venza w/JBL/maestro RR/TO1 flashed with current firmware 1.6/Alpine INE-w960/ all connections good. HU turns on and navigation works, backup camera works, all audio sources appear to be playing but im not getting any audio at all. The RR does not light up green or red. The RCA are not plugged in bc there is no RCA inputs on this head unit. The speakers are connected thru the wire harness. blue/white line is connected. I have no idea why there is no audio. please help.

You need the adapter from Alpine that has the RCA's or you can use a Line Output Converter and wire the front speaker wires into that and plug our amplifier adapter harness into the output of the LOC.

Thanks for the reply. I really do appreciate your help. You would be talking about the RCA Harness Camera Pre Amp Output that connects to the six/preout? Do you have a link for the rca adapter or is it something I could mcguyver from spare cords? Could I use any of the unused ports like the iPod video input per manual says it can handle audio and video. Or the s-video looking input?

Good looking out Justin! Picked one up at autozone and works like a charm. Prince’s 1999 never sounded so good! Much obliged to you and the whole maestro team!

Spoke too soon. I’m only getting audio out of the 3 speakers in the dash. They also start to crackle when I turn the volume up.
Installed new jbl club 6500cx used factory wiring.

being that the OEM amplifier only inputs 2 channels of audio from the radio and you are getting some speakers working it would indicate that either you have some bad speakers in the vehicle or the more common issue of a bad JBL amplifier. I would start my testing with the speakers as it is the easiset to test then move to the amplifier
