Popping sound in rear speakers when radio is off

I hear a popping sound from the rear speakers when the radio is turned off. Stops when the radio is turned on. But randomly occurs whether the car is running or just sitting in the driveway.

Radio volume went out after a popping sound in the rear. It turns on and I can hear it but very faintly.


If power is more than speakers can handle this will happen. If you have a amplifier in the rear than all it is a fuse or a circuit breaker needs to be reset

Static popping and buzzing sounds come from the speakers when the car is running. The Radio is not turned on and it will continue for a long time, quit then start again as you are driving.


Is it a factory amplified system? Could be the volume knob. Might try unplugging the radio for test purposes and see if it still pops and buzzes to get a better idea of where to go next

I put a replacement radio in a 1994 Olds Cutlass Supreme radio makes noise in right rear speaker when tuning in station.


Hi JPLP, A popping or 'motor boating' sound is usually a sign that one of the transistors is defective. As it happens only when tuning in the radio it is possibly in the pre amp stage. Regards John

The radio stopped working on my 02 Deville, however the time flashes. Also the chime that lets you know the keys are in the ignition and the back up to close to something chime is barely working. I hear a...


The key reminder and back up sensors on these cars are by both a computer behind the rear seat back and the radio itself, these two things communicate with eachirher through what is called a dash integration module. Concurrency your stereo isn't working, the popping sounds and that your battery is being drained, the first most likely cause is that the radio itself or the wiring going to it has a short or is otherwise damaged. The electrical systems in your car is extremely complex, I would strongly suggest taking it to a dealer or a shop that is experienced with your model and/or has access to factory repair manuals.

Bose radio comes on but no sound in my 2004 chevy avalanche.Sometimes even with radio off you hear a popping sound come from speakers. thanks


First Visually check all your fuses. Does rig have amp for stereo by any chance? It sounds like amp is bad and/or fuse is blown. Amp is wired between radio and speakers, and a shorted amp would make crackling in speakers when radio is OFF

If that dosnt match with your vehicle try this tip, 1st always find your speaker wires first,Since this is the most tedious part, its better to get those out of the way, 2nd thing Disconnect the battery of the vehicle so you don't blow fuses for the head unit, 3rd, strip back all of the wires that are available to you. Its better to grab the all together and cut them all an equal length to make it neat. 4th
Once you have all your wires stripped back - Grab any single wire. Hold it against a terminal on the battery and one by one go through and tap every other wire against the other terminal of the battery until you hear a "pop". When you hear a speaker popping, you have correctly identified the wires that run directly to it. If on the first attempt at popping a speaker you don't find one, pick up another wire and repeat the process. They will eventually come, and the more you identify, the fewer wires you have to mess with, You will need these Items,You'll need some wire strippers, a digital multimeter, electrical tape,9 volt battery
