Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

Who installed the after market radio? Is the radio new or used?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
It has the factory radio back in it I tried using another factory radio and the same thing is happening
Expert:  Jay replied 2 months ago.

Open the trunk and unplug the speakers on the back deck and see if the other front speaker starts to work.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
No it didn't
Expert:  Jay replied 2 months ago.

Did you try getting 1 speaker wired at a time to see if it would work?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
No
Expert:  Jay replied 2 months ago.

I would wire up each speaker one at a time to verify operation.

Expert:  Jay replied 2 months ago.

Is the factory radio you are looking to replace a Bose radio?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Ok
Expert:  Jay replied 2 months ago.

When you do one at a time, it's easier to catch the mistake when you are doing it.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
No I brought the car with the factory radio and while I was checking I noticed it had a aftermarket radio in there before but the wires are intact
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
No it's not a Bose radio it is the regular radio
Expert:  Jay replied 2 months ago.

If it's a regular radio, that means there is no audio amp. So it should be a direct wire to each speaker. So if you wire up the after market radio one speaker at a time, starting lets say drivers front. And you don't get any sound out of it. I would hook it up to another channel on the radio to see if I get sound out of it. If I can't get sound out of it, then I would remove the door panel and inspect the speaker and check the wiring.

It's not an aftermarket radio it's the regular Nissan radio
Expert:  Jay replied 2 months ago.

I would use the after market radio to test though.

Is the factory radio you picked up the original radio? or did you buy it?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Is the original radio and I also got another factory radio and tried it and it did the same thing
Expert:  Jay replied 2 months ago.

Then that is why I would check each speaker and the wiring to each speaker
