Why is rear stock subwoofer not working?

I have a 1998 Ford Expedition Eddie Bauer 5.4L with stock Mach Audio sound system. After installing aftermarket stereo the rear subwoofer doesn't work. Wondering if I didn't hook up a wire or blew a fuse.

Check if the REMOTE wire to the sub amp has the 12-volt trigger voltage at turn ON. Firstly, be sure your wiring is in order.
Hope this helps...

The easy thing is check your fuses, and then go over the wiring diagram enclosed with the unit. Most aftermarket units have a separate output for subwoofers, either RCA type, or Din.

SOURCE: My stereo,Mach brand, on my 98 Ford Expedition

Is this a factory radio? First check alll of the fuses, fuse links inside and under the hood. There could be a couple of possible issues. When you hook up the cables wrong you ultimately send power to the ground circuits and ground to the power circuits. There are lots of modules in most vehicles and they are succepable to voltage spikes. There is a common industry term called "letting the magic smoke out" when this happens. If your vehicle has a body control module, it could have been damaged, the radio itself could also be a module and have been damaged. There could also be an amplifier that may have shorted out, this would explain the radio powering up but no sound. If you can get a wiring schematic and pull the radio you can check the inputs (power,gnd ,etc). If you had done this on a Nissan we would'nt be having this conversation, Nissan installs a safety relay on their vehicles that is wired in backwards and is only energized if the cables are reversed, this relay disconnects all of the sensative equipment/modules so they are'nt harmed once it is energized. I would'nt go out and buy one just for this feature, just food for thought.

It should be mounted on the passenger back. you will have to remove the rear quarter interior panel, The trim where the hatch locks and around the trim where the hatch meets the rear. once the trim is removed you can access the sub, it is bolted to the car and plugs into the factory amp, which is located right in front of the sub. After taking the bolts out, the sub will come out.

'99 eddie bauer, cold air in the rear hot air in


you may just be low on freon. The rear will often work ok when low, but the front won't

The same compressor serves both front and rear systems. Check that first.

ALso, check to see if your front blend door rotates when you raise & lower the temperature.

1999 explorer stock subwoofer


I would be very proud of that truck as the sub that came with the truck was only a 8". The only one that works is the factory model as it is a 1 1/2 - 2 ohm speaker; replacements are 4ohm. You will have to replace the amp as well if you put in an aftermarket sub. Oh and apparently the amp will have to have "speaker level" inputs as opposed to pre-amp inputs. I have a 1999 Eddie Bauer wih a blown sub and I'm trying to decide what to do as well. The speaker is $400 with tax in Canada! Good luck.
