Most common is the amplifier has failed has the radio been checked for a short?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
I understand that each door has an amp and that there is an amp in the back behind the subwoofer enclosure. Is this the amp you're referring to? Also I have been advised to pull the radio head unit, unplug it, wait and hour and reinstall and power it back up that it will do a series of self-tests. At that point I can also inspect the back of the unit for connection issues.

Yes that would be the next step the amp behind the subwoofer is usually the problem. These are what you need to check next. Hoped this helped. Positive feedback and bonuses greatly appreciated.
