SOURCE: Front speakers

either the wires in the boot where door folds open has broken wires in it or the most likely case you have 2 blown wolfers and 1 blown tweeter. common for cars with the monsoon stereo system, they made the radio better than the speakers.

SOURCE: Front door speakers

You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door

SOURCE: door panel

You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. If needed, you can pull back the weather seal (can't reuse it, but it's not that important) and you will be able to access everything inside the door

Loud speaker static from 2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse when the car is off. It drained that battery. I tried pulling the radio fuse but it was still making the noise. I had to disconnect the battery to g


The fuse might be built into the cable to the lighterand/or radio. It's called "fusable link", this type of fuse looks like a cable. Or another type of fusable link might be in the fuse box under the hood near the firewall.

Static coming through the speakers even though the radio is unplugged and the fuse is takin out what worng?


After I read this whole post and the solution by other guy. I came to my own conclusion is that you may have an exposed wiring that causes the static sound out of speakers. Try to look for bare wiring that may have touch each other as well as touching the metal of the vehicle. Try to disconnect the wires at the speaker, and see if it works. If it does works, then you know that you have wiring issue there.

1995 camaro z28 audio problems


Hi Jamie, Here's an old trick which you may find useful. Take a run down flashlight cell and confirm the wiring to the speakers by holding the earthing line of the speaker cable to the negative and flash the positive side with the feed to the speaker one at a time. With each swipe you will hear a thump from each speaker as you connect and disconnect. In that way you can confirm the cables are the ones you are connecting. Color coding is not always the same. Use a voltage test meter to confirm the constant power and ignition power and don't forget to earth the set once all other connections have been made, Withour an earth it won't work, but you know that anyway.

Rain got into my truck window now my speakers has stopped working...what should i do?


Could have damaged the speakers or the radio or both.
You could pull a door panel and connect a small used speaker to see if the radio is producing a feed to the door.

My 2007 corolla radio has no sound


Just had this problem. Radio comes on, no sound (or it would make a loud static sound if you hit the radio or ramdomly on it's own), everything else is fine, display, CD works etc.. So I bought an identical used replacement radio on ebay, still not working and the same problem.


Then I found a post that suggested looking in the trunk and found that one of the plastic terminals for the wires on the rear speaker had broken off. Wiggled it, and the radio came on.
Problem? Stuffing too much junk in the trunk caused the problem, it snapped the plastic clip where the speaker wire is soldered in (connection was in fact still good), and then it shorted.


Hope that helps.

I have a 1998 ford explorer with power windows. They will not come down. Fuses are good, Motors are good. Took Volt meter and tested the window switch on driver side door and they were all good. Need some...


Window fuse's and relay's may be up under driver or passenger side dash or behind glove box, under the hood and even under the seats, and finally on the ends of the dash. All passenger power windows are controlled thru and get power from the master control switch on the drivers door.

Drivers door window gets used the most so it could be the motor, window switch, relay or fuse.
Could also be a broken wire in the rubber boot going from the door to the body. You will have to eliminate each till you find the culprit. Check that all switches return to neutral when released.
The motor and the relay are the most likely to cause this problem. Try swapping the relay with a working window relay. If it still doesn't work, remove the door panel and remove the window motor.
Turn the motor shaft in both directions by hand several turns. Then plug the motor in and see if the switch will now run the motor. Sometimes that's all it takes to get it working again. I have had to do this with brand new motors. If voltage is not present at the motor connector, either a bad switch or a broken wire exists. Make sure to check for voltage coming to that windows switch.

Try this....
Open the door, turn the key to the ON position without starting the engine and everything that makes noise is off. Lean down placing your ears close to the bottom center of the door or at the speaker grill. Press the window switch UP and DOWN. Listen for the window motor. If heard the drive is damaged. If not heard, turn key off and locate and replace the relay with one of the other window relays. Check window again. If it works now, get a new relay. More often than not, removing the motor and turning it by hand will get it working good as new. I have had to do that with Brand New motors! So try it.
If all has failed, with the door panel still off, check for voltage at the motor connector when pushing the window switch. No voltage means its the switch, especially if its a auto down or up switch.

Check the master window control panel on the driver's door. There is probably a lockout switch. It may have a window outline on one end and the same outline with an "X" over it on the other. Press the outline without the "X" and all your windows should work again. As silly as that sounds, a lot people hit that switch without knowing it. Also if that switch(lockout) is faulty, none of the windows will work. That happens A LOT!!

What is the fuse # for the power window


On the right side of your glove box, open the passenger door to access compartment #26 30 amp.

As for the power windows, try this.
1.        Measure voltage at 30 amp circuit breaker #26 at fuse block. Meter should read battery voltage. If not, replace or repair open to 60 amp fuse #13 in Power Distribution Center (PDC) as required.
2.        Turn ignition switch to off and measure resistance from ground lug on left side kick panel to ground. Meter read zero ohms. If not, repair open to ground.
3.        Remove master power window switch on left front door. Measure resistance at black wire (terminal one of green connector). Meter should read zero ohms. If not, repair open to ground.
4.        Turn ignition switch to on and measure voltage at terminal 5 of black connector. Meter should read battery voltage. If not, repair open to circuit breaker #26 in fuse block.
5.        Close master window switch. Measure voltage at terminal 1 of black connector. Meter should read battery voltage. If not, replace switch.
6.        Operate window switch. All windows should operate.

My 2005 Accord's radio / CD player will not produce sound to the speakers, the display panel works fine. Sometimes a loud static sound will come from the speakers with no volume control, powering off gets...


The sound chip may have gone in the stereo, especially if someone has had it on very loud they sometimes blow, otherwise you have 2 speaker wires touching each other, that way you only get static noise, insidee the door they sometimes come free and touch the body

Check all your speaker wires first.

Front two speakers just stopped working.


I have an 05 Cobalt that just experienced the same problem. I had my door panels off and my speakers appear to be dead.

If you have a multimeter, you can pull the speaker out and test to see if you get resistance across the two terminals. It should say on the speaker what the resistance should be (most likely 4 ohms). If you get no reading, you most likely will have to replace the speaker.

You could also test for AC voltage on the speaker wires. When the stereo is on, and set to a reasonably loud value, you should get a few volts. If you don't get any reading at the door, it may be either the wiring or the stereo. To determine which it is, you will have to take readings at the stereo output.

Hope this helps.
