You have hooked up the wires to the speakers incorrectly. Check again.

How to install rear speakers in a 2001 chevy impala ls


first start off buy laying your back seats down , then take a 10mm ratchet and take the 4 bolts off. next you will need to take the rear dash out (best to use two people one to hole the bar back and one to take the dash out ) ok so once you have the dash out lift the sound proffing mat up and this will expose the speakers . press the two clips (on the left side of the speakers ) and lift up and slide to the left to remove the speakers . be sure to disconnect them before this step . once the speakers are out you will need to remove the black plate off the bottom of the STOCK speakers .best to use a knife to slice around because it is stock on with glue . once the plates are removed have one person hold the plate and you drop the speakers in to the STOCK plates. screw the aftermarket screws in tho the pre-excisting holes . once this is done for both place the speakers back in to the car and clip them in


WIREING: the stock speakers were atached with clips , these :WILL not work with the aftermarket speaks. you will need to splice them and join the givin wires to the new wires that come with the speaks ,.once joind just tape them togeather or use blue wire nuts . make sure that the speaks work before putting the rear dash back in . :)

2004 Avalanche/Radio speakers blown, all of them. The rear speaker was the last one working, then a pop in the front left of the dash, and the speaker is dead. What is going on?


either you are running an aftermarket stereo with too much power for the OEM speakers, or your OEM radio has malfunctioned and there is stray voltage getting to the speakers. in the prior case you need to upgrade your speakers, in the latter case you need to look around and find a replacement used working OEM radio. used OEM radios can be had on eBay, at junkyards, at stereo install shops, and by looking around on craagslist, to name a few.

look on youtube.com for videos of folks pulling a dashboard, console, stereo, or speaker replacement on your vehicle. Or you can buy a repair manual which can be had on CD for about 5 bucks on eBay.

I have a 1996 ford explorer, the person who had it before had someone install an aftermarket cd player in it and now the door speakers nor the rear speakers work anymore, also the dash lights no longer...


Look for inst. lites fuse and clean the connectors at the fuse panel. The stereo speakers might have come loose from a poor wiring job. Look under the dash below the radio. Sometimes the dash light switch gets worn and doesn't work until you mess with it a little.

Did it fail while you had vehicle, or like this when you bought it? Could be bad radio or wiring harness was chopped up when previous owners had an aftermarket radio installed. They probably just slapped the OEM radio back in when selling car. And didn't put all the OEM wiring back in.

Stereo Upgrade in 1997 Sentra


hi there. I am not sure about the speakers. But there is a wiring harness available for a aftermarket head unit. I have a '97 sentra the base model XE version. I have just put in an alpine head unit and you defenately hear the difference even on factory speakers. But you will need 2 kits to install an aftermarket head unit in the car. 1. A dash kit. I got mine from canadian tire for about 20 bucks, it comes with instructions on how to put it together and its straight forward, just make sure u get the one for your year and make of car.

2. The wiring harness. there available at mostly every car audio place for about 10 bucks. again make sure u get the one for your year make and model of car. installing this is difficult so unless your good at electronics get it professionally installed. you have to splice the wires into the back of the aftermarket unit, then the plugs plug right into your existing factory car harness.

hope this solves your problem, the dash kit is easy to put together and install into the car, but the wiring harness is a bit difficult, i had my harness installed for about 40 bucks and u save money if u put the dash kit togehter yourself because thats 1 less thing they have to do. good luck.

Original radio wiring harness


Google Volvo wiring diagram. They are available free. The diagram shows the wire location and colors. Otherwise, run a continuity test with a simple meter to discover a connection with some resistance between a pair of wires. If you here a click or two, from the speakers, you have found the right pair. Continue and label the pairs left, right, front,rear, until all are identified. Then reconnect. A pain but not rocket science.
