Good afternoon, I hope you are doing great! My name is***** would be happy to assist you with this today.

So based off what you are describing it sounds to me like the issue is most likely inside the radio control unit. The speakers all run off of separate circuits after the signal leaves the radio, so if the radio is not sending out the proper signal none of the speakers will have sound. It seems over time things come loose inside the radio and cause a bad connection. Since the fuses are still good there are not many other tests we can perform. I would suggest taking it in and having the radio unit tested.

Let me know if you have any more questions about it :)
