2004 Chevy Silverado - driver side and rear speakers are not working, only the passenger side. Suggestions?
Year : 2004Make : ChevroletModel : Silverado crew cab Z71Engine : 5.3L
Nothing, didn't want to tear into the dash before getting some idea about how to approach the problem
Welcome. Did they go out at the same time?
Forgive me for asking this, but you have checked the balance control?
I just purchased the truck and didn't realize the speakers weren't working. If the balance control you asked about is the feature on the radio, yes I have tried adjusting with no results. I don't know the history of the truck.
Ok, do any of the chimes work, like having the key in the ignition with the door open, or leave the headlights on?
Sorry for the delay, I'm at work. No the chimes are not working.
OK. Does your truck have the Bose system or just the regular radio?
There is no Bose insignia so I believe it is regular
OK, it is likely that you have either a bad speaker which is common or bad wiring. Myself, knowing how common the speakers are and that they are not all that expensive, would try a speaker.
It's not just one speaker, the driver side and the rear speakers are not working, remember its a crew cab
OK, For some reason I though it was the drivers front and rear. Sorry. Do you have a multimeter to test the resistance of the speakers from the connector at the back of the radio?
Yes, how hard is it to get to?
The radio is easy. With the steering wheel tilted low and the gear selector in low, pull the edges of the trim around the cluster to remove it. Then there are 3 screws, 7mm that hold the radio in. Remove them and slide the radio out. Below is the speaker information.
