No sound to rear speaker

Post by datorexpert » Sun Jun 07, 2015 1:47 pm

Hi everyone!
I have replaced the cables between the speakers and the plug under the seat.
The fader is on for the rear speakers.
What else could be the issue?
For example, is there any fuse needed to be checked?
The front speakers work great.

You may have a broken wire (or two) near the trunk lid hinge area. Common problem from all the trunk lid opening and closing that flexes the wire and it breaks there.

Since you already changed the speaker cable, a long shot is that you may have two bad speakers. Not common but can happen. You can check the speakers with a AAA battery. Just touch the positive and negative sides of the battery to the speaker terminals (without the wire harness attached).
