Sounds like you may have a short in the wiring to the speakers. You can play with the balance and fade controls to check the sound, but a professional car stereo installer can troubleshoot and replace that for you.

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.

You should remove the relevant door inners and inspect the connectors to the speakers. They corrode easily being close to the outside. Sometimes a wiggle will get the speaker working, otherwise you will have to crimp on some new connectors.

The rear speakers stopped working in 2006 Tralblazer

The most common solution is both rear speakers are bad. Not what you expect, but is what we usually find. could be a driver in the radio.
Go back to the rear speaker and put your ear right on the speaker and notice if there is a faint sound.
Have a test speaker and plug up before you buy the correct ones.
