Re: speaker switch box
Just to help clarify on this for future viewers:
There is a bank of 4 speaker wire sockets (2 pairs), like this: [#][X] [#][X]
The # is black and the X is red. Each pair goes to one speaker.
The speaker wiring supplied with the system is copper in color, with two wires joined together. One wire has a black stripe on the clear casing, the other has no stripe. The one with the stripe goes into the black socket and the one without the stripe goes into the red socket.
With the unit facing towards you, lean over it and look at the speaker sockets on the back of the unit. The socket pair on the left goes to the left speaker and the socket pair on the right goes to the right speaker. Remember that this appears "reversed" when the rear of the unit it facing you, so that's why it's easier to do it oriented as I described.
Connect up the speakers and you're good to go. Don't forget to connect the sub woofer! It has a separate black wire with RCA style plugs. You plug it into the white colored socket.

In fact the insulated inner wire (the white tube) is the signal carrying wire.
The outer wires without insulation are connecting ground (GND).
Both wires have to be connected to the speaker in the ear piece in order to (re-) build a circuit.
Pins look like this: (Top view, not copper side) 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
1 = Thin white wire from thick white cable (Left input) 2 = Gray (Speaker out) 3 = Orange (+V return from volume unit to bass unit) 4 = Not connected 5 = Thin Red wire from thick red wire (Right input) 6 = Blue (+V power from bass unit to volume unit) 7 = Black (GND - if socket removed, solder 3 socket shield holes to each other or solder black wire directly leftmost hole) 8 = Not connected 9 = Shield copper from thick red wire
Shield copper from thick wire : Solder to GND or Left unconnected
HI, BASED ON THE INFO YOU GAVE I HAVE SOME SUGGESTIONS BELOW..
1, switch the working right speakers cable to left output and problem left to right (from the back of receiver -not from the speakers it self..) to see if problem continues..
2.After switching them ,if it (old left new right one ) still stops left speaker cable may have short ( a tiny cable inner pieces may touching to other side ) at either at the back of receiver output or at the end ,at speaker input . make sure you control it carefully...if the problem persist please contact to me..
Take care and please Remember to rate/vote and give me 4 Thumbs Up for Helping out the Community :) Hope this helps! Thanks

The easiest way is to check the speakers themselves as manufacturers tend to change colors of speakers at a whim. Usualy though you will have 8 wires (4 front & 4 rear) paired in colours (white goes with white+black stripe(stripe is possative on speaker))etc. Not knowing the cars electrics I can't be more specific.(I live in UK so don't know that much about U.S. cars)
Here' s the colors to look for in the dash: 1994 Ford Probe Car Radio Stereo Wiring Diagram

Depends which kind of RCA's you have.....Most likly you have sheilded where there is a center wire and then strands of wire wrapped around the outside of the insulation of the inner wire. That outer wire is the "Ground" the inner wire would be you right and left signals. Good luck.
