Question about 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe
I have a 2001 Tahoe LT, which is equipped with OnStar (but I don't use it),non bose stereo with factory sub woofer. I replaced the factory radio with a JVC head unit. Used the wiring harness supplied by Crutchfield to hook up the JVC. Problem is I get sound from the radio only some of the time (about 50 percent of time it will come on and stay on). Every time when I turn on the ignition, the stereo powers up just fine, the display looks like it should, but about 50 percent of the time I will not get any sound. Nothing I do will make sound come on other than shutting the truck off and going away for a short time. If I shut the truck off and turn it back on without getting out and closing the door, still no sound. If I shut if off, get out. lock the doors, and walk away then come back in 2 minutes, I may get sound. If the sound does come on, it will stay on (usually - see exceptions below) for however long I am driving around, so it does not cut out once it comes on. If I press one of the OnStar button on the dash - it always cuts off the sound immediately. Then recently, on those times when the sound did come on, as soon as I got up to about 10 mph the sound may cut out. If the sound comes on at start up, I have let it sit for as long as 10 minutes running in park and had sound, but as soon as I got close to 10mph - no sound. Crutchfield says I don't need the OnStar connection module since I don't use OnStar. Saw some suggestions to hook an unused blue and white wire from the JVC to a pink wire on the unused 9 pin plug on the factory harness, and that did not work. Anyone have any ideas?

2 possible solutions. First clean the door pin contacts(multiple spring loaded pins on door side and matching plate on body) with a scotch pad until shiny gold color again. Second the rear edge of the door should be 1mm inside the body opening when closed. If those are correct it is going to take a software download from a dealer to the door control module to fix this. Otherwise you will have to pull the psd fuse and breaker from the right side dash fuse box.

SOURCE: Radio cuts out windows dont work
I have the same problem with my 96 camaro. I checked the fuses box and the radio, windows and IP dimmer fuses don't have power. More likely is a short in the motor of one of the windows.

Hi! You may have a system failure. Please try this. Open the hood and remove the positive battery connector and leave it for atleast 5mins. This should reset the system and resolve the problem. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

check wiring on passengers side near the rear hatch speaker, the rear door speakers are run through them also. i had the same problem and it was a unplugged connector at that location
