that aftermarket radio may require different ohm speakers than whats in the car. open trunk and look at speaker magnets they will have the ohms printed on them if they dont say 4 or 8 ohms then they are incompatable with your stereo and may damage it if ohms are lower than 4 ohms. also make sure your radio balnce tone fader settings are correct. some of these new radios are so comlicated with that stuff it requires a 100 page book just to operate it.

I have a 1996 chev k1500 4x4, i have replaced the battery, alternator, trucks starts fine until i plug in the block heater and it drains the battery

Install a new Block Heater

Electron Flow--is out off battery,thru body,frame,fluids,etc,and returns on all the wires.

So, I suspect the heater is bad, and your battery is discharging through the house neutral.

I am trying to find the problem with the 4x4 on my 97 suburban. I removed my front axle actuator and applied 12 volts to the leads. The actuator came out kind of slow and retracted when I removed the...

Your actuator works by heating a specific gas and expanding the actuating rod. It is typically about 20-30 seconds. They work faster in warm weather and may not work at all in cold weather if they are old. Check your fuse box for a bad fuse, on my '97 it is # 24. If the fuse is good, your atuator appears to be working. It is just slow. There is a way to upgrade the actuator. Do a search on Amazon for Dorman #600-101 and the appropriate harness, 600-600. The harness plugs in to your original harness and then into the actuator. An extra long wire goes over the tranny to the transfer case wiring block, where you wire into the brown hot wire. Or you can replace the original with Dorman part # 600-100. It will probably work just fine. GM designed the front axle to engage after the transfer case, with a bit of a delay. That's what the original actuator does. The updated actuator is much quicker (2-3 seconds), but most folks have not found this to be an issue. It worked fine on my'94 Dually.

I drove my 1994 z71 truck through a creek and now 4x4 doesn't wrk

On the full size, the front actuator is electric, not vacuum.

When in 4wd mode, a switch on top of the transfer case conducts 12 volts out to the actuator. Wire #50 (brown) is the 12v feed, and it conducts to the light blue wire (#900) to the actuator.
When shifted out of 4wd, the switch opens up and no voltage goes to the actuator.

Check voltage at the connector for the front actuator (at the front differential - it looks like a large bullet that threads into the front diff.) If it has 12 volts, the actuator is the problem. If it does not have 12 volts, check the transfer case switch and the power feed to the transfer case.

I'll assume it is the actuator, if the plug to the actuator is getting 12 volts when in 4wd.
The way this actuator works, is it is a sealed chamber that gets heated by voltage. When it heats, the pin in the end swells and pushes a shift fork in the front differential. The shift fork engages a spline on the passenger side of the differential, and boom! you have 4WD.

GM offered an upgrade to this actuator that is a motor instead of a heated device. However, it requires a small harness addition, a spacer, and a new actuator. It is about a $150 to $200 option.

If I were you, I would buy a new heated actuator. They are available at most auto parts stores, and are about $90. They are also on eBay for about $55 plus shipping. These are very easy to change - just thread out the old one, and thread in a new one.

Good luck, That actuator is usually the problem 90% of time.
