Question about 2000 Pontiac Grand Prix
I have a 2000 Grand Prix. How do I locate and fix the problem? Have checked the connection at speakers.
I have the same car and my rear driver side speaker stopped working, so I hooked up a different speaker to the wires and that speaker worked fine. So i now know its the factory speaker that's NFG and I'm going to purchase some better quality 6"x9" speakers. I'm surprised that those junkie speakers lasted over 9 years. How i went about testing the different speaker was I took the clip off of the NFG speaker terminal and stuck some old speaker wire into each side (positive,negative) of the connector,then wrapped the other ends of the speaker wire to the positive,negative terminal on the good speaker. Instead of having to cut into the wire and screwing up the factory connector that clips into the factory speaker while not knowing at the time if it was the wiring or the speaker that was NFG

I do not want to insult you in any way, but I must ask just in case it was overlooked! First check to be sure that the speaker settings on the stereo were not set all the way to the front. If that is not the problem, you can hook another speaker you know works to the wireing to the rear speakers to check to see if it is the speaker or the wireing. If you hear sound from the speaker you know works, then your speakers in the car are bad. If you do not hear sound, then it will be from the wireing. Next is the more difficult part. You will have to pull the stereo out and can splice into the wires. Hook the good speakers up to the splice and check for sound. make sure you know for sure the wires you splice into are for the rear speakers. If you still hear no sound, then it is more then likely a problem in the stereo itself. If you do hear sound then there is a problem in the wireing somewhere and may be easier to just run new wires to the rear speakers.

Its the factory speakers they only work in certain temps. Just go out and buy new ones. i found this out by taking my buddies old speakers from his pontiac he wrecked and hooked them up and they worked fine but when i hooked my originals up they produced no sound.
