    I have the same problem the back speakers quit and only start working about an hour after the car is running and warm.

    I have the same problem. They only work when the sun beats down on them and it's a certain temp. Weird but that's how it is. If i go under trees or a cloud, then they go out.

    I have the same issue. If it's not above 75 degrees and even hotter my back speakers won't come on. It is seriously the most perplexing situation and makes no sense, so I had it checked at a best buy and they told me to rewire it.

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

Sir,
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.

2000 Grand Prix: how to change rear speakers in a 2000 Pontiac Gran...


You will have to remove the backseat. First the bottom part, it has two pull cords to release the seat. Take that out. Then for the back part, you will have to remove 4 nuts (2 with washer looking things attached and the ones holding the seatbelts) at the bottom of the seat. After removing them, where you had removed the seatbelt nuts, you will have to remove the seatbelt peices. Once that's done, you will have to pull the seat out and up. Behind that, there is 2 round button anchors, which you will have to pull out. Once those are removed, the whole back peice comes out, exposing the rear speakers. They should be 1/4 bolts holding the speakers in. And if you are modifying (not using stock speakers), you may have to cut they wires to replace the speakers.

Deforest system in 1997 grand prix needs to be fix


If you are referring to your rear window defroster not working when you press the button, you either have a blown fuse or are missing the fuse entirely.
Check your manual (sec 6 I believe): The fuse panel for your problem is located behind the glove box. You need to remove the front case but just pulling the handle to expose the fuses. The fuse is the same fuse that controls your heated seating, your hvac, rear defroster, and automatic lights. Let me know if this is the problem you where having and if this helps.. I just fixed this on my 97 Grand Prix SE 3 days ago!!!

My rear speakers are humming and i've changed the cd player and the same thing


It sounds like a problem with the stock amplifier, try swapping that out. I believe they are a Bose unit. Not sure where it's located but most commonly they are located under or near the stereo or somwhere near the trunk.

The display does not work on the radio


Odd about the speakers not working only when its hot out but anyways,
There is a bulb in the radio that shines throught the LCD panel to show the display, it could be burnt out, or just not getting connection.
You can rig up a bulb in the radio fairly easy, just go hit up your local Radio Shack, or go on Ebay and search for "GM Radio Bulb" they are about 20 bucks. 
For the rear speakers, i'd check the connection through the trunk to make sure they aren't loose.
