The driver door controls went out and I had a blown fuse but everything works untill I plugged the door speaker back in and it smoked and sizzled so I believe that I had a short to ground could you clear up what those 5 door speaker wires are and what's supposed to be hot and what wires shouldn't be live....

Remember that it is not the driver door switch or module because everything works until I plug the speaker back in....

Welcome I'm Chris aka Moose

The power and ground to the speaker is minimal, it should not cause a short to make smoke and sizzle noise. You more than likely have a wire short on more than one wire inside the door jam to blame. Can you check that? If you still need a wire diagram let me know.

if you could send the wire diagram of the driver door
that may help.
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 1 year ago.

I have to send diagrams through an additional service offer, so they are not on an open forum. Sending that invite now.

I'm expected to pay 12 more dollars for the original requested for a wire diagram?
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 1 year ago.

You selected the lowest question value. Sorry yes, there is a fee for diagrams. I have to pay for them, and have to re cooperate that cost to share them. The website does not compensate the experts since we are not employees.
