Question about 1998 Chevrolet S-10 Pickup
It sounds like two speaker wires are hooked up to two speakers at the same time, which cancel them out -
Disconnect all the speaker from where they are mounted and take note (write down) which color are hooked to each speaker (if each are different). All rear speakers should share one color, and all front speakers should share one color. Each speaker (positive wire) should have a unique color to it's direction. If not take one speaker at a time. If need be, run wire from on speaker to another to get both (left/right side - front/rear) to work together. This is a simple bypass method, and will work, but will disablet he "balance" option Not fade. Make sure the fuse is still good in the back of the stereo as well as under the dash (fuse panel).
Some stereos have internal fuses, and if another goes out they'll still turn on, but once power is distrubuted to the speakers, they will cut out.
It's a wiring issue, as I recently had this same issue and this is what I had to do. Tedious, taunting, and a pain, but it will work.
Please let me know if you need any further assistance with this matter.

I know this may be after the fact but, Best Buy sells the harness for about $20 that plugs directly into the GM factory harness and then you wire it to your new stereo. That way you don't get these little issues that will drive you nuts. This is going to be you best, cleanest, and most permanent fix before the built in amplifier in your stereo gets burned out.
