Question about 1998 GMC Jimmy

Iluminite Speaker Instalation 12v DC power

Background:
My sound system was in ruins, front driver door was blown and the back driver side was dead.

So I just bought some Dual Illumiminite 6.5 inch speakers and installed them into the front door panels, and some other Dual 6.5 speakers in the back door panels. the sound is great, and everything works fine there... but now i want to bring the full potential of the illuminites into play.

My conundrum is thus: Where should I route the needed 12v DC power from to my front doors so as to light up these speakers?

My Initial Response:
At first i was thinking about integrating them into wherever the dash lights connect, so as that they will only activate during the evenings, or when insufficient outdoor light is available to see my instrumental panel, and that they would also rely upon the dimmer adjustment wheel. I know i cannot attach it to my stereo receiver, (gives a big NO to that option on the speaker)

There is 12+ going to the power window switch if you have power windows, you could tap off of that. It's already inside the door, no routing needed. Use continuity test to find ground. Also hook up a seperate switch on the door to turn them on or off.

or while on car, connect a known good speaker to each output that is dead, work now, yes, bad speaker or line.

What would cause the driver side front door speaker and the passenger side rear deck speakers not to work. When if fade the sound all the way to the front with no sound in rear and with the balance turned...


Check the speakers if they work. Connect the speaker terminals using a short wire to a 1.5 volt battery (AA or any dry cell batter) and listen if there's a thumping sound when the wires are connected to the battery terminals. If there's no sound, your speakers are busted. If there's a sound, check if the wires are okay. Use the same method with the battery with the wires from the back of your stereo. Make a small cut on the wire and attach the short wires you used earlier.

pull the rubber boot back off the wiring harness in the crease of the drivers door and check for broken wires there. common problem due to the number of times these wires flex to allow the door to open and close

Driver side windows will not operate in the front or back. Passenger side windows do operate.


It sounds like you have a switch problem in your door panel.if you can raise the window in the rear with the switch but not from the front then suspect the switch in your drivers door panel. If neither window will open with the switch in either door panel, still check your drivers door panel switch.you may try running power to the motor by itself with a jumper wire from a known 12v lead from the battery if you can and see if the windows will raise and lower without using the switch.

Door chimes on my 2007 impala are low in sound.Any hints? thank you


Ok left side door speaker is the door chime speaker, I would check the left side door speaker to make sure it's not blown out. This can be done by using your fade & balance button on the radio and going to front speaker and left side only and to see if the speaker is blown. if so replaced it

Cigarette lighter inop. Checked with a meter an there is no 12v dc. I checked all fuses in the box under the hood. None are blown. Is there a fuse for this outlet and where is it located?


There is a fuse block located on the drivers side of the dash. If you open the drivers front door there will be a panel on the end of the dash. Remove the panel and there will be a fuse labeled cigar/dlc
