Asked by Apr 18, 2016 at 11:54 AM about the 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier Sedan FWD

Question type: General

So I had some alternator problems....  I would turn
the car off and there was a buzzing noise coming
from the alternator....  I wasn't sure what this ment
.... But I do know that it would be pulling power
from somewhere if it was making this noise....  
Well shortly after that my sterio stopped working...  
Display worked but no sound....  No radio,  CD,  or
AUX sound...  And when u would turn the car on..  
You would hear ghetto speakers click or pop like it
was coming on...  But no sound .... Changed

Change the battery

Did a diagnostics test and battery is fine

I think you may have a separate amp. and it sounds like there is a short in the system . you are probably better off getting an aftermarket radio. I had to do this for my eclipse. this was a pain in the A** because the amp was under the seat , I had to wire all the speakers back to the radio , but I think your amp is under the radio
