Customer Question

Hi, I have a 2007 lexus gs350. Everytime it rains out my speakers don't produce any sound. The electornic display works fine. I can switch modes and stations on the radio but no sound. After a few hours of driving, the sound comes back on. I understand that water is producing the short in the electrical system but am having trouble figuring out where the water might be. Please help.

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

Tracing this down is going to require checking each component for signs of moisture while the problem m is occurring. I would start with checking the amp located in the trunk. See the link below for the location of all the components . Check them one by one and see if you can determine what is getting wet.
